Users / Re: Core Transparency / OpenGL Failure

Well I will try that after a fresh install as now it won't boot at all. 
I then tryed to re-install from the DVD and well it goes thru to the point where remove the dvd and hit return.
It tryes to reboot and hangs (twice) I am now doing a lo-level format on the 250gig drive and start from fresh, this will take time.
When I put the 40 gig drive in that I initally started with and the original hardware in the same slots on the motherboard all works fine.
The 250 gig I just swapped the same cards in difftent slots to make room for the tuner card, sow it was not a different Nvidia card?

With the tuner card this time in from a fresh install and and AGP Nvedia card maybe things will be diffrent.

I would like to setup Linux MCE in whole house, but for now am very happy using Tversity and my DSM320's and DSC520 off of 1 of my Windows XP machine with a 1.25 terabytes of storage works 100% for the last year no problems but does not have the total home vision that Linux MCE does.

Users / Core Transparency / OpenGL Failure
« on: November 17, 2007, 11:54:45 pm »
Well after 2 weeks of running and gaining headway with LinuxMCE I am back at square 1.
I moved my video card from one slot on the mother board to another making room for the bigger TV tuner card statred up and get the error message
Orberer failed to setup transparency. Please check if the transparen.... and runs off the screen

OK I will remove the tuner card and put things back and restart.  No Luck
OK during startup I will hold down the left shift key at the audio prompt and reconfig from UI2 to UI1, nice try but this time
Orbeter failed to initialize OpenGL

And all this time I can not get to the Kubuntu Desk top or du any thing but look at the Manager and periodic full screen popup errors.  close manager and b blank gray screen of death.

Reading elsewere these type of issues are usualy on inital install with unproven hardware not on a running system.

OK Now what any suggestions?

I will give it a try and let you know.

Also I am able to see my 750gig usb bookdrive on the XP computer using smb and it is shared, but when I click on it I get
"Error - Konqueror
The file or folder smb://cadmachine/Movies BookDrive does not exist."
any ideas?


Users / Adding network content
« on: November 16, 2007, 03:15:50 pm »
I have two questions for the group.
1.   I would like to add xvid content to the Linux MCE database that is stored on a 750gig usb drive on a Windows XP machine.  The XP machine does not go thru the Linux MCE box on the Eth1 card but is connected thru my D-Link routed.  I can see the drive from the Kubuntu file manager.  If I go to the admin page of Linux MCE, Media files, Video (doing this from memory not at home looking at the MCE) I see the directory that media files are in on the MCE box, and there is an add directory that just adds a directory to the local HDD.  Can I point to a remote HDD or file?
2.   I also have MP3 files in directories that are Billboard top 100 songs from 1949 to 2005 and some times I just like to pick a year.  The Linux MCE structure as I understand wants Artist, Album format and many of my files are in the structure.  Others are 1 or 2 hit wonders and have no Album as with many of my old 45 records (I know I am giving my age away here).  Do I have to edit the attribute tags associated with each of the MP3 files, I have some 10,000 files and would hate to do this on each of the files.

Installation issues / Test bench to live operating core
« on: November 14, 2007, 02:35:04 pm »
Just a quick question I could not seem to find an answer to on the forum.  I am currently running LinuxMCE on my test bench computer; can I just take the hard drive out and place it in a new core machine with different video, network and audio cards? Or do I need to move the audio and video cards? 
What problems may I encounter?   
Should I re-run the wizard?
If possible this would save me a lot of work in setting up the new core.

I fornd that adding a few directories at a time is working, just painfull as I have about 10,000 mp3 files to add.  When I tryed to add larg blocks of files the resyncronize would freeze up and would not work.  Will I have a problem as I add more and more?   ???

Well it has been about 24 hours and no update.  I am in the process of a resynchronize now and it seems to be thinking and only time will tell.  When I viewed the "http://localhost/pluto-admin/index.php?section=mediaFilesSyncFrameset" the new files I added did not have the green check mark next to them.

Well I thought every thing was going my way, I performed a test and copied (1) artist with (3) ablums to the music directory from my Windows XP machine.  The world was great and they played just fine (installed Lame as found in this forum).
How to get down to buisness I transfered 30+ directories in one feld swoop, but after adding MP3 files to the public folder music in the same artist, album format nothing showed up??? :'(

I tryed a shutdown reboot, regen, and any thing else I thought would help still nothing but the first artist directory that I added (HA)

Installation issues / Re: Fresh DVD Install
« on: November 08, 2007, 03:52:10 am »
You should have something like the settings below... but note that the core below has a single physical network adapter which is used via a router to provide both the LAN & WAN side networks;

EXTERNAL_MAC    00:16:17:76:6F:6B
INTERNAL_MAC    00:16:17:76:6F:6B

Thanks for the info, but being new to Linux and MCE how do I use this info?
I can remove the second Ethernet card then what?
Do I go to the Admin page and find this under Advanced, Network, Network Settings?
I am not good with network stuff, can follow directions  but can't see where I can change the settings that are listed.

Yes I can get in to the Admin, but having problems with internet connection, this causes a problem as all help files are on line.

Installation issues / No Internet Connection
« on: November 07, 2007, 06:15:51 pm »
I recently installed LinuxMCE, I did not have the computer connected to the cable modem during the installation.  I have 2 Ethernet cards installed.  I now after install have tried to connect to the internet directly to the cable modem with no luck.  I rebooted with the eth0 ethernet connected to the modem and nothing, I have not tryed eth1 as I understand that this is where my internal network would connect when using LinuxMCE as the DHCP server.  I  would also like to keep the Windows machines and the LinuxMCE machines on seperate networks in the future, one serving up media (linux) and the other for internet trafic (Windows). Is this possible without 2 cable modems?

Back to my inital problem, I am new to Linux, do I need to reinstall or is there a fix, where can I find info to better diagnose the problem?
