Guess I can skip that. I have lorex cameras and they aren’t listed :roll_eyes:

It would be important to tell the user that zoneminder is coming from a third-party repository named RPMFusion and that the dnf command above only works after (installing and) enabling that third-party repository.

Are you sure it doesn’t work with your cam? They advertise that it works with any cam!

NOTE

Search in zoneminder forum with key = Lorex Cameras

“use any camera”. (I know, it is probably not true)
