Installation issues / Re: Installing Diskless MDs

Maverick,

just a heads up. Installation of another tftpd server was successful. I will now need to implement the config for it, modify some package definitions in sqlCVS and hopefully, that will get us moving forward.

Users / HDIM CEC pnp

I have created a small test script to check for TVs on the HDMI-CEC string. I'd appreciate if others with HDMI CEC enabled MDs (mostly Raspberry Pis) check it out.

You must install cec-utils first!

Thanks.

I am running it manually atm, but it involves using dpkg -r --force-xxx to get rid of atftpd and apt-get download another tftpd and manually installing it. This will cause the pluto-newmd-interactor package to be broken (in terms of package management, not functionality).

I am currently working on getting the MySQL glitches of 1604 sorted out. Between that and getting VDR onto a rpi MD, I'll see if I can find some time to get another tftpd into the mix.

See if both have run the same kernel. If they are, my money is on hardware.

What happens when you clone the HDD to SSD? ie no new install, but just clone the existing install.

Plugging the old HDD in makes the sound work again?

Try it :)

If all fails, just install something else. For an automation server the requirements are very low.

Seems the need to update the tftpd server grows...

Background: atftpd only supports downloads up to 32MB - I'll see what I can do create some new packages that will probably pull some other tftpd server in.

The files are still to large. I wonder if this has to do with some modules that are being compiled for your nvidia card.

And does it work now? If not, what errors do you see? And paste the ls information you pasted above again.

Google for chroot mounting dev and proc  - do that outside the chroot, and try again.

Your list is strange.

Your initrd image is 34468576 bytes big. It is named initrd.img-3.16.0-77-generic, but initrd.img-3.16.0-77-generic on my system is only 28213576 bytes. However, a new kernel (initrd.img-4.4.0-62-generic)  is around 34 million bytes.

This looks like something got screwed.

See what happens when you a reinstall of linux-image-3.16.0-77-generic, ie.
Code: [Select]
chroot /usr/pluto/diskless/86
apt-get install --reinstall linux-image-3.16.0-77-generic
exit

and try booting again.

The maximum size our current tftp server supports is <32MB

As you seem to have issues with your IRC connection, here are a couple of hints:

* ls -l the relevant directories (tftpboot, diskless/xx, diskless/xx/boot, and paste output in here.
* cut the relevant log information, and paste in here.

oh, and a note on multizone playback: Audio multizone playback is already working very nice due to phenigma's work with software Squeezeboxes on rpis. I did a 9 rpi install on Cyprus and the audio sync worked perfect.

VLC on rpi is possible, but has issues due to no direct support for hardware acceleration. There is some work in the VLC/RPI community to get the omxplayer acceleration code into VLC. No idea when that might happen.

People are using qOrbiter on RPI, but I have no idea how far it is in terms of being replacement for the onscreen Orbiter.

If a file can't be played hardware assisted, I just go ahead and recode it with ffmpeg. But most just work.
