ZoneMinder 1.25 Install Slackware 14.0

Has anyone been able to get ZoneMinder 1.25 running successfully in Slackware 14.0? There is no longer a SlackBuild available for Slackware 14.0 so I ended up compiling from source. That part went relatively well as I was able to back out the dependencies needed from the ZoneMinder SlackBuild for 13.37 (version 1.24.2).

Anyways, I got it compiled and running along with apache but I can't for the life of me get any video feeds to show up...didn't know if anyone has had success...

I admit I'm a little bit in over my head as I haven't messed with apache too much in the past. I do have ZoneMinder running on an Ubuntu arm build, but that wasn't much more than a 'sudo apt-get install zoneminder'.

Any help would be appreciated. If I don't get anywhere, I may end up trying the SlackBuild for 13.37 with ZoneMinder 1.24.2; but I'd really like to get 1.25 working and I feel as if I'm close.

After spending days on this, it came down to the following simple fix...

Uncomment the following line in '/etc/httpd/httpd.conf':
#LoadModule cgi_module lib64/httpd/modules/

This assumes the rest of 'httpd.conf' is setup correctly. By default the 'cgi_module' isn't loaded which will prevent video from streaming properly in ZoneMinder.
