   Thanks for the reply.
   I tried a new Debian installation in expert mode on Wednesday using the
latest businesscard installer with KDE desktop but aptitude would
not install zoneminder because of dependency errors. I ran out of time then
but can retry the complete installation using any desktop, and would be
pleased if it is happy with a lightweight desktop. It would save time if I
could easily compare the list of dependencies with what is already provided
by each of the four standard desktop options without doing a complete
re-installation each time. The desktop may only be used initially, with
normal access via a network, as I am trying to build a dedicated system to
just run zoneminder that can be hidden away out of sight.
