Setting up personal CCTV with CentOS and webcam

After tried few times and failed to get the webcam to work in my Fedora 9 box..
I decided to re-formatted the whole box and install CentOS 5..

and guess what?.. after installed dkms-gpsca and all the dependencies..
the webcam just work out-of-the-box..
.. by using ekiga.. can see the video stream captured from the



then come the interesting part..
after playing a bit with skype and ekiga to get the video stream..
why not putting a webcam software showing something like world view.. or something..

did bump into a software.. Zone Minder[] [ad#postad] run into sort of script sequence as below..

rpm -Uhv

mkdir cctv
cd cctv/
wget wget
yum install mysql mysql-server mysql-devel php php-gd php-mysql httpd gcc pcre-devel gd mod_ssl glib2-devel gcc-c++ ntp gnutls-devel
yum install libjpeg-devel perl-Archive-Tar perl-MIME-Lite perl-MIME-tools perl-Date-Manip perl-Time-HiRes
yum install perl-LWP-UserAgent-Determined perl-PHP-Serialization perl-Device-SerialPort perl-Archive-Zip perl-Module-Load
tar -zxvf ZoneMinder-1.23.3.tar.gz
cd ZoneMinder-1.23.3
./configure –with-webdir=/var/www/html/zm –with-cgidir=/var/www/cgi-bin
make install

service mysqld start

cd cctv/ZoneMinder-1.23.3

mysql -u root -p < db/zm_create.sql zm cp scripts/zm /etc/init.d/ chmod a+x /etc/init.d/zm chkconfig zm on cp ../cambozola.jar /var/www/html/zm/ service zm start chkconfig httpd on chkconfig mysqld on chkconfig ntpd on

~~.. done..
