Hi! The ${pkgdir}/usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d was missing on the ARMV7h architecture. I had to disable those command in the package build. Really strage, have you seen this before?

@dantob You're right, as per official guidelines 'any' is only meant to signify runtime architecture-independency, and I should be manually specifying the architectures this package can be compiled for. I'll update the PKGBUILD whenever the next upstream update comes out.

Please properly set an architecture for this package, 'any' is supposed to only be used when the built package can run on 'any architecture'. That is not the case here.

Separate these into another package if you want to keep 'any'

downgrading ffmpeg works for the missing libs error and it is the recommended workaround.

for those who have many packages depending on the new version of ffmpeg and don't want to downgrade them all, they can extract the 4 missing libs from the previous ffmpeg package version, put them in /usr/local/lib and symlink them. it's not recommended and it must be manually cleaned up once zoneminder package is properly updated.

my affected libs were: they can be found in /var/cache/pacman/pkg/ffmpeg-2:5.1.2-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

Hello, just for anyone doing a full system update. FFMPEG gets updated to 6.0.3 and will break the zmc video portion. When you update and then try to view your cameras they all come up with nothing and the log files gives a 127 error. When you try to open the cameras in the terminal like zmc -m# it throws an error in relation to does not exist. Searching the system it looks like libavformat gets updated to 60 and zoneminder has no clue how to use this file. I downgraded back to ffmpeg 5.1.2 and this fixed the issue temporarily. Hope this helps

@synthead Do you really think that's necessary? It builds and runs fine in non-Docker environments, and pod2man is already an optional dependency for anyone who may need it for Docker, so adding it as a hard dependency would mean that most users would be installing a package they do not need.

@Nocifer, should pod2man be added as a dependency if this package doesn't build without it?

If you're talking about the three configuration files that come with the package itself (/etc/zoneminder/zm.conf, /etc/zoneminder/conf.d/01-system-paths.conf, /etc/zoneminder/conf.d/02-multiserver.conf) you're not supposed to edit them directly, you should create new files in conf.d and put whatever settings you may need in there.

any particular reason this package overwrites all the config files in /etc/zoneminder on each update?
