Can't get Zoneminder service to start in console

Last Modified: 2013-12-06
I've installed Zoneminder on Fedora 12 and it looks like everything is working ok (httpd starts, mysqld starts, zoneminder starts).  But when I log into the console, the screen says "ZoneMinder Console - Stopped."  I click on the Stopped and try to start it and the little window says, "Applying state change" and then clears out but the console still says, "stopped."

From what I've read, it leans towards a permissions issue or runlevel issue, but I can't figure it out.  I'm going to try to install Zoneminder onto a Gentoo server to compare....
