Zoneminder on Slackware ARM

Anyone got Zoneminder working on Slackware ARM ?
I'm actually only intrested in a fraction of Zonminder's features so I'd consider any alternatives too.
The IP camera's I'm gonna be using already can manage sending pictures upon movement detection so all I'd need to do is have a loop recording of the cameras and a neat way of accessing the recordings.

Maybe even mencoder could record directly from the ip camers ? but the I'm not sure how to organize the loop type recording appart from periodically overwriting files.
The cameras are even able to upload video to FTP server ... but I'm not sure if they can manage the the amount of time I want to keep before overwriting.

I did a bit of testing with mplayer and I was unable to play the stream produced by my ip camera, but vlc managed fine.
I found this link useful for finding how to directly access the video stream of my ip camera:
I estimated that @ Standard Definition I need around 28MiB of disk space per minute of recording time.
Keeping a weekly history before rewriting would require about 270GiB per camera.

I finally got the ftp upload on movement detection to work. I could probably have that trigger vlc recording on the camera and just forget about looping.
