You may want to add a provides and conflicts line for aur/zoneminder. It'll make it easier for people switching from one to the other.

Just a tip: I just tried it and you can often go from zoneminder-git to zoneminder just by uninstalling using 'pacman -R' (this should leave the configuration files and database intact but manually back them up if important) and then installing the other package 'packer -S zoneminder'. Then just run zmupdate. For me my old config was still there and all worked fine. It's helpful at the moment because zoneminder-git is out of date and the other 'zoneminder' package is actually newer and functional.

Please add this dependencies:

without this zoneminder doesn't start

my build is failing with (per CMakeError.log):

aur-zoneminder-git/src/zoneminder/CMakeFiles/CMakeTmp/CheckIncludeFile.c:1:28: fatal error: gnutls/openssl.h: No such file or directory

gnutls is installed as required.

Edit (1/4/16): The update to 1.29 seems to have fixed it. Thanks!

BTW 403 is generally an apache / php problem

Try this, appears to work here.

Couple of bugs with this package:
* Running /usr/lib/zm/bin/zminit failed for me. Adding 'ZM_PATH_UPDATE=/usr/lib/zm/upgrade' to the top of zminit worked for me.
* Running rc.d start zm or equivalent returns an missing file error on Copying the file from /srv/zoneminder/bin to /usr/lib/zm/bin fixes the problem.
* Despite (or because of) above fixes, it still doesn't seem to work. The ZoneMinder daemon starts but access to localhost/zm is forbidden (403).
