Hi all, I've decided to give ZoneMinder a try with a simple USB webcam that I've had laying around. I installed it in a VMware machine, but I could not get the webcam to "pass trough" to the virtual machine, so figured I would install ZoneMinder on the "regular" server...
I installed it, got annoyed, and autoremoved it. Now, I'm trying to reinstall it using
and I'm getting a bunch of errors,
apt-get install zoneminder
is the output on the screen, I've tried
Setting up zoneminder (1.24.2-2build3) ...

and still get the errors. I'm somewhat new to Linux so any and all help is greatly appreciated.
