Unable to add Zoneminder PPA - no release file

Asked by Peter Freeth on 2018-08-08

When I attempt to add the Zoneminder PPA listed on Launchpad, I get this message:

The repository 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/iconnor/zoneminder/ubuntu bionic Release' does not have a Release file.

Adding trusted to sources.list or using --allow-unauthenticated still does not allow the package source to be added.

The PPA ppa:iconnor/zoneminder does not provide a version for Ubuntu 18.04 (bionic)

I suggest that you remove this PPA from your list of repository sources and use ppa:iconnor/zoneminder-master instead

http://ppa.launchpad.net/iconnor/zoneminder/ubuntu/dists/

Not. All PPAs support all releases and is why you should filter the PPA to see if it supports your release.

The zoneminder-master repo works thanks.

However after installing zm, all the various zm processes run at 70%+ CPU and kill my PC.
