Installation from source - how to get them?
« on: January 05, 2014, 04:48:40 pm »
I installed core in a virtual machine, it went alright, I can access the web interface and it is functional.
However ... there is incredible amount of unneeded software, Asterisk, CUPS, Samba, NIS, MythTV, etc. Also I do not need router functionality. It is headless, but even core install installs KDE, it just won't load it.
All I need is the Home Automation part, methinks it's called Pluto?
So I figured I'll clean it up a little. But it seems to be impossible with supercow apt-get because literally everything depends on each other.
Well, I thought I'll build it from source and see if I can configure it with minimal dependencies.
The beginning is not encouraging, after looking at Wiki and googling the following URL is the best I found - but it errors out:
Code: [Select]
svn co http://svn.linuxmce.org/svn/branches/LinuxMCE-1004/
svn: E170000: Unrecognized URL scheme for 'http://svn.linuxmce.org/svn/branches/LinuxMCE-1004'

First question, how to get sources?

Second question, maybe there already is modular install and I do not have to build it from source?

why don't you just go with something like Mister House which is designed just for Homeautomation. You take a fullhouse solution and want to take away about 90% of its features. Doesn't make much sense, right?

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Building_From_Source is the wiki page you might want to start with.

Thanks, MisterHouse does not do Z-Wave ... yet.

Yes, but as I stated in my initial post svn command fails on me ...

Interesting ... it seems there is an answer to my second question (from initial post) - http://www.agocontrol.com/

If all you want is home automation, agecontrol might be a good option for you!
