Users / Re: apt-get upgrade problem
« on: October 18, 2014, 05:26:22 pm »
i am afraid You are right. But i am really not that deep into ubuntu to even guess.
hopefully i didn`t post a "format c:"  :o if, then i am really sorry!
the update worked for me and i am not experiencing any troubles (until now).
Code: [Select]
dpkg-divert --package dash --divert /bin/sh.distrib --add /bin/shthis means that everything that wants to install /bin/sh is redirected to /bin/sh.distrib? The only exception is the package dash?
At my computer /bin/sh is still linked to bash and /bin/sh.distrib is also a link to bash.
I checked if i have substituted dash with bash back then, but as my bash history tells me, it doesn`t seem so.
i just tried to remove the diversion and i got the error again when trying to update.
with the diversion everything is or seems to be fine....
what do You think? Or anybody else, who can bring some enlightment?

i don`t know if You still have this problem, but I have run into the same today, wanting to update bash.
I found this and it seems that everything is okay now:

Really Great News!!!

Thank You for developping and all the work!
Can't wait to try it and  replace the noisy zotac zbox with it.

But first i have to get a newer raspberry and switch to use the 12.04 installation.

a shame, i know, but it is really not as complicated as i thought.

sorry for waking up the dead.

maybe there is a better way, because this change is for all mds?

wanting to change the ringtone to a more smooth one, i changed the template


I am now using this ringtone:

there are several others in the same directory. hard to choose. :)

sorry again, should i start a new thread next time?
I think even if the most people here know this already, it could have saved me a bit of time, so i posted a reply....

So i am back.

Installing 12.04 (snapshot: LMCE-1204-20140121095528629.iso) was "smoother" than i thought.
a few obstacles that occured:

bevor the first reboot it seemed to hang at 90%. i switched to a text conole and it magically resumed. maybe it was just superstition and it would have gone further anyway ....

the core/hybrid needed direct access to the internet as it was mentioned here somewhere in the forum. otherwise it got stuck in a reboot-loop due to not detecting the network.
after the installation i can now put a router between core and the internet and network is fine.

my tv-usb-card win-tv-nova is recognized and added several times like it is in 10.04.


first my aeon labs z-stick was not detected. today i have put another usb-stick into the core (tricklestar 300zw-eu). that wasn`t recognized either but after switching back, the aeon stick got detected and added.
i cannot control any lights.
They show up in the web-administration-page but turning on/off has no effect.
the smoke detector is still not recognized correctly (generic tuner).

The new grub recognized my 10.04 installation. so after changing the default grub entry, i now have a nice dual boot.
one stable sysem and one to fiddle arround.
Video and audio is doing fine.
Again thanks!
I wouldn`t have thougt that 12.04 has come that long way already.
The smoke detector is not so important. it is just a nice thing to have that linked to the "matrix".  :)

the perfect reason for me to try 12.04 finally.  ;)
will try to install it (dual boot?) and report back!

i recently got this smoke detector.
It is still detected as Generic Tuner #75 like it is said in this ticket:

I am on 10.04 and did an apt-get update and upgrade today.
also tried to ex- and include the detector again but without any luck of correct detection.

I have now added it manually as child device of ZWave Embedded Security Interf and changed the port/channel number to the port channel number of the generic tuner. (Don`t know if this has the slightest chance to work, but there was hope and not much knowledge. :) )

What can i do now? Iwill be thankfull for any hint.

For the future:
Should i just reopen the ticket or is it okay to ask in this forum.
Really unsure about it and what version  had been fixed.
milestone 12.04 means it is fixed in 12.04 only?

thanks for this fine programm

Yo thanks alot!
looks so much nicer with all that artwork and it`s really amazing, to have all these informations.
i am tagging it manually right now. its really worth it.
A friend told me always, that xbmc i doing the tagging thing automatically.

 Or maybe will do it again in the future!

I read about autotagging in some threads here. Whooow what a great feature! i didn`t realised that untill now.
unfortunately it is not working for me.
The "linuxmceTag" is allready fully integrated into linuxmce right now? I dont`t have to download anything as in the wiki about metadata handling?
This is something from the log:

Users / Asterisk outgoing calls [solved]
« on: March 17, 2013, 07:43:31 pm »

first let me thank You all again for this great application.
really enjoying linuxmce.
I recently changed my passive graphic card from a gs8400 to a gt520 in my hybrid and it really boosts the video quality.

but in this whole update tingletangle i updated the system including asterisk.

now i am unable to make extern calls.

It was working just a few weeks ago.

here is my setup:

2 phone lines:  used for outgoing calls / no prefix used for incomming calls / prefix 9 (but this doesn`t seem to have any effect)

I only have softphones configured.

I can call every phone in the house and i can call sip adresses like

If i try to call a "real" phone number, i get this error (asterisk -r):

Code: [Select]
[2013-03-17 17:20:52] WARNING[17580]: chan_sip.c:5441 create_addr: Purely numeric hostname (00mytelephonenumber00), and not a peer--rejecting!
Really destroying SIP dialog '05b97f1759f5631663a257272b88e7c7@' Method: INVITE
[2013-03-17 17:20:52] WARNING[17580]: app_dial.c:2218 dial_exec_full: Unable to create channel of type 'SIP' (cause 20 - Unknown)

00mytelephonenumber00 is the number i got from and the number i registered at voipcheap.

recently i changed

Code: [Select]

in /etc/asterisk/extensions.conf mentioned in another thread.

So incomming calls are working quite fine, besides a missed call is not shown on any orbiter and i cannot access the mailboxmessage.

I googled for the error message but cannot find anything of use (for me).
Is there something (an extension?) in asterisk that translates phonenumbers to sipnumbers?
And did I somehow messed it up?

My past experience with linuxmce taught me to stay away from editing config files on my own. :)

Really would appreciate a hint.


Thought that I tried that already. But it seems that i haven`t.
Deleting all phone lines and adding them again did the trick.
...have you tried turning it off and on again.... :)

but the problem with the mailbox remains.

Users / [solved] VDR Changing default video directory
« on: February 27, 2012, 06:49:22 pm »

i am using VDR with a Hauppauge Nova-TD Stick, after getting into a lot of trouble with mythtv (DiB0070 I2C write failed).
VDR seems more stable to me at the moment.

But as i have a separate media harddisk i want to store my tv-shows under "/mnt/device/ XY/public/data/pvr/".
It is working, but whenever i restart my core/hybrid, i get the wrong owner and file-permission (root:public).
Therefore vdr won`t start.

Is it ok to put something like this

Code: [Select]
chown vdr:public /mnt/device/80/public/data/pvr/ -R
chmod 774 /mnt/device/80/public/data/pvr/ -R

into /etc/rc.local?


Putting User=root into /etc/default/vdr did it!
Thanx a lot, posde!
