Pictures not showing in Orbiter
« on: September 02, 2012, 08:52:08 pm »
Hi All,
I have been looking around for a possible solution to this and am hoping that I can get some help.
I found an old thread that describes my issue pretty well, but I can't seem to get it to work (http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php/topic,6889.0.html). I had an issue where I had mounted a raid array as my home directory. I was told that that was a no-no. So I have since unmounted the raid array from /home (/home is just on the boot drive) the raid array is now just hanging out there. After a reboot, it was seen by linuxmce and mounted on /mnt/devices/149 and /home/public/data/other/Software Raid 5 [149]. Once that was done the mp3 and video files sync'd fine, however, no symlink was created for the pictures directory in /home/public/data/pictures.  There is only a symlink for flickr there. As an FYI the directory structure on the mounted raid was /mnt/devices/149/public/data/pictures.

So I tried deleting the raid array in web admin. Then ran sudo mdadm --detail --scan >> /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf  as the uuid's were different in the mdadm.conf file. (As per this page: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Create_RAID_in_LMCE) Once I did that, the web admin found the array, renumbered it device 163 and it started scanning the media on the device. The problem is there is still no symlink to /mnt/devices/163/public/data/pictures in /home/public/data/pictures and the images are not showing up in the orbiters. Also, none of the orbiters asked if I should use the new device, nor if it should use Linuxmce Directory structure or be public.

Long story short, in the 2008 post, there was a mention that permissions could be an issue,

Here is what the permissions are for /mnt/device/163/public:
drwxrwsr-x  3 myuser       public           17 2012-08-30 07:31 public

/mnt/device/163/public/data
drwxrwsr-x 22 myuser public 4096 2012-08-22 19:52 data

/mnt/device/163/public/data/pictures
drwxrwsr-x 161 myuser public  8192 2012-08-30 20:27 pictures

Thoughts on how to resolve this?

Thanks,
Rob

What orbiter are you running??? Windows orbiter (either native or through Wine on Linux), qOrbiter, Web Orbiter???
See my User page on the LinuxMCE Wiki for a description of my system configuration (click the little globe under my profile pic).

JaseP, Thanks for helping! I have windows orbiters running in wine and windows as well as web orbiters running on android tablets and phones.

Is there a way to tell why the link in /home/public/data/pictures? Would that be logged somewhere?

update:
So I am still having issues with this. A link is still not being created in /home/public/data/pictures. And I am getting some weirdness in the web admin. The Software Raid 5 is showing that it is "failed" under State. Even though mdadm shows it is "clean". I did change the PK_users to "Use Linuxmce's directory structure" however all the child devices (/dev/sda, /dev/sdb, etc) are all showing as "REMOVED". Should I try deleting the Software RAID 5 device and starting over?

Update #2:
Ok it looks like I forgot Rule Number 1 ;D

Although the Raid is still showing as FAILED, since changing to Use LMCE's Directory Structure, there is now a link in /home/public/data/pictures and there is no longer a link in /home/public/data/other. So I had to do a Delete All Missing Files from Database on /home/public/data/other and Resync the /home/public/data/pictures etc. I will be more patient ;)
