Delete everything and run:

dpkg-scanpackages /usr/pluto/deb-cache /dev/null | sed 's,\/usr\/pluto\/deb-cache\/,,g' | tee Packages | gzip -9c > /usr/pluto/deb-cache/Packages.gz

Installation issues / Re: Small LMCE screen size.

If there is no xorg.conf, the first screen of avwiz is sized small on some displays. Once you hit OK and select an appropriate size, it should be fixed.

If there is any kind of adapter in the way, this generally kills EDID discovery. That is almost always the answer.

As per building a modeline, try:
cvt 1280 720 60

My sample output on this laptop is:
cvt 1280 720 60
# 1280x720 59.86 Hz (CVT 0.92M9) hsync: 44.77 kHz; pclk: 74.50 MHz
Modeline "1280x720_60.00"   74.50  1280 1344 1472 1664  720 723 728 748 -hsync +vsync

So the modeline in xorg.conf would be:
        Modeline        "1280x720_60.00" 74.50 1280 1344 1472 1664 720 723 728 748 -hsync +vsync

It is important to remember to remove all double spaces after the quotes. In that example there is one after the quote, before the 1280 and one before the 720.

On my core I have:
root@dcerouter:~# cvt 1280 720 60
# 1280x720 59.86 Hz (CVT 0.92M9) hsync: 44.77 kHz; pclk: 74.50 MHz
Modeline "1280x720_60.00"   74.50  1280 1344 1472 1664  720 723 728 748 -hsync +vsync

The one generated by LMCE is:
        Modeline        "1280x720" 74.250 1280 1390 1430 1650 720 725 730 750 +hsync +vsync
You can see they are very close.

You can then set xrandr to use this mode if it is not working right ootb. BTW... if this is a CRT, a bad modeline can physically damage the monitor.


You can pay me, or I can work through it over IRC for free and teach you how to make them yourself... your call.

That message is mine, and as it says... should not happen. Please give me the output of lspci -nn | grep VGA

As to the wireless... I am not sure what you have done thus far. Does it show up in lspci? You are using an ION as a core? That is not a great idea. I mean... it will probably work, but... as you add responsibilities and moons... that is going to be hairy.

One of my first posts here was how to use a WIFI card as the external interface.,9530.msg65315.html#msg65315

Ahh so green...

Yes. Keep media off of the 80 gb drive.

As that 1.5 fills up, it is easy to just drop little NAS bricks onto the network. A wise man also backs everything up. You would be smart to duplicate your efforts going forward, and clonezilla your stable system onto the 1.5 somewhere as an image.

Thank you very much! This old laptop worked well as a MythTV frontend for a few years so I have no complaints. I guess it's time to move onto the next machine.With luck the NUC will work well and I will be able to ditch the old laptop with the broken screen.

Well... tell me what it does when you open myth. If you had good playback of HD myth before...

I mean unless this was a very old setup back when fglrx still worked with your HW on an old kernel...

Yeah... that's what I thought. It should work for everything but mythtv and true HD video files.

You can adjust the mythtv playback settings in the regular setup menu in myth (not the main setup under computing) to the "slim" playback profile, and you can playback recorded myth stuff in all likelihood... but live streaming is going to be HD and probably break or be unwatchable.

Ummm... no... that does not make sense.

Something else reverted your sources.list, and THAT is why the gpgUpdate failed. Phenigma can shed more light on what does this. Probably something to do with confirm dependencies.

Speaking of which I believe this has been changed in the DB. You might try updating CVS in web admin.

lspci -nnk | grep VGA -A3

I believe that is going to be on the radeon driver, and myth might not like it much... this is due to ATI dropping support like mad. Not much to be done if the open source driver cannot keep up.

Installation issues / Re: PXE boot MD
« on: January 17, 2014, 03:10:07 am »
I have no clue. Any thoughts on how to find out?

I saw the "Generic PC as MD" entry as Device 63. I got back "ssh: connect to host moon63 port 22: No route to host"

I was very patient and let everything complete. Nothing came back after "sudo dpkg --configure -a"

Thank you,

What followed is how to find out.

In order to ssh into the moon, it must be on. In web admin/Media Directors it will say what the MD number is. You can also see the list of MDs in /usr/pluto/diskless.

Everything in linuxmce runs as root with limited exception. My first instruction is almost always "sudo -i" so that you do not have to run sudo before commands, because sometimes sudo will not transfer across some of the commands I want run. When you ssh into an MD, you will be root. You must of course instantiate the ssh session as root. The dpkg --configure -a was to be run from the ssh session.

So turn on the MD, root up, confirm the MD number and try again.

In situations where the MD cannot be booted we will chroot it, but that should not be the issue here. *nor would it be helpful as we would tie it to the cores hardware*

Yeah... medibuntu is dead.

edit /etc/apt/sources.list
Replace the medibuntu repository with:
deb /

Update will bark at you about a gpg key, but still download what you want. If you want it to stop barking run the following:
sudo -i
. /usr/pluto/bin/; gpgUpdate
It will take a minute, but will add the key.

What is the GPU?

On core sudo -i
ssh moonXX where XX is the MD number
lspci -nn | grep VGA

The first time the MD sets up it goes through a great deal of installing in the background... did you force it to reload during this process or shut it down or anything? While you are at it dpkg --configure -a

If that returns anything, you have broken packages it is trying to fix.

Just hit the link... select "new ticket"
Give a descriptive title... and post whatever detail you can determine based on your experience, and any logs you can find specific information from. My myth in 1204 fills... but, I only experiment, so that info might not persist more than 24 hrs.
