So far no joy in Mudville (x2 attempts).

Will try swinging whole chicken counterclockwise at midnight while reciting 'V's 5th of November speech.

Evey Hammond: Who are you?

V: Who? Who is but the form following the function of what and what I am is a man in a mask.

Evey Hammond: Well I can see that.

V: Of course you can. I'm not questioning your powers of observation; I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.

Evey Hammond: Oh. Right.

V: But on this most auspicious of nights, permit me then, in lieu of the more commonplace sobriquet, to suggest the character of this dramatis persona.

V: VoilĂ ! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.

[carves "V" into poster on wall]

V: The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.

V: [giggles]

V: Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.

Evey Hammond: Are you, like, a crazy person?

V: I am quite sure they will say so. But to whom, might I ask, am I speaking?

Evey Hammond: I'm Evey.

V: Evey? E-V. Of course you are.

Evey Hammond: What does that mean?

V: It means that I, like God, do not play with dice and do not believe in coincidence. Are you hurt?

Gee, at school I was taught to "always avoid alliteration".

Will try to install again.

I tried this snap x3 installs to figure out what was going on - (O.K. so I'm a little slow).

I was attempting to do a Core/Hybrid install.

On the first install I got audio/video setup but I never received Sarah.

What I noticed on the second install was that the system was doing a lmce-core install.

O.K. let it run out (because on the first install I tried Graphical Aspect - high to see if it was working) and on the second I went for medium to see if that was the issue.

So, the third time I did medium graphics again and went finished I logged in as root and tried "apt-get lmce-hybrid" - (can't get there from here).

I did an apt-get update & apt-get upgrade.  Reboot.  Got Sarah, did the Media Player setup.  When software was finished downloading did the restart.

Got Flicker and menu.

The volume was very low during audio setup and Sarah so I'll have to probably go into alsamixer to adjust - will advise.

I will try to add my NAS to see if I have the same issue (from about a week ago) with the wget install.

(NAS didn't go to sleep but UpdateMedia didn't do anyrthing until I did a Resynch in webadmin.) - will advise.



Just curiuos.  Don't want to download and test if missing major functionality.

I tried a fresh install of this snap but there seems to be a race condition during the install process.

Once the Kubuntu install hits "copying files 12%"  and you are still filling out the installation forms, username/password/etc that's it.  You are hosed.

I tried 5 times to get thru the install setup and could not make it to the end before hitting 12%.

The setup screens just won't accept input or you are presented with a blanl screen with continue.

When it goes thru the installation process the system will start Kubuntu and then crash and loop back to the GRUB menu.

I tried wget installs on Thursday and Friday but continue to get no dcerouter prompt on sudo login and can't find server on webadmin.

Loaded this snap and, unfortunately, it reboots back to the grub menu.

md5sums checked.

Tried on 2 different hardware systems (AMD and Intel).

Tried VGA, DVI and HDMI as video outputs.


Installation issues / PXE-E32: TFTP open timeout

Did all the latest updates/upgrades etc.

Tried to boot an existing MD and got...

TFTP ....   which gave a PXE-E32: TFTP open timeout  error message.

Then,  TFTP ..... tries again and after about 5 minutes I receive

3X  PXE-E32: TFTP open timeout messages and
      exiting NVidia Boot agent

System reboots.

I downloaded and installed this snap.   

It loads and after restart provides the Ubuntu GRUB select screen.

After selecting Ubuntu it runs (for a bit), but then loops back to Ubuntu GRUB select screen.


Installation issues / NAS recognized and added but no meddia addded
« on: February 09, 2015, 04:25:40 pm »

I have finally got the pieces together to rebuild my dev box (to try to get cu-box working - haven't managed to do ANYTHING since October/14).  I loaded on 12041002114429514, which is my bullet load, running on my main system.  I did update, upgrade, dist-upgrade.  Everything fine.  Fired up my NAS, it was discovered, added username/password.  No media discovered.  I rebooted, nothing. I tried a resync from webadmin Media Files Sync  and received the following.

Core/Hybrid with nvidia drivers, Sarah A/V present, no Flickr photos, NAS detected username/password entered - media updated and MD's announced (x2) and created.

Best one in a long time.

Will test out what I can.

Great job guys.


Installation issues / CuBox-i from SolidRun
« on: August 09, 2014, 10:40:06 pm »

I've ordered one of these to play with.

Just wondering if anyone else has tried to use one as a MD.

Same as...

And besides having to manually enter the same fields I checked off and saved "Use 5 second pings to ensure connection stays alive" on Device Templates #1837 & #1768.

I rebooted with the NAS off, then NAS on but each time the NAS was not checked as being Online in template #1768 and would timeout and go into hibernation.

I tried checking the windows shares as online, then powering down/up NAS, closing re-opening webadmin (which showed the shares as being online), but, NAS still went into hibernation and media on NAS was never discovered by UpdateMedia.

On initial install no network configuration messages but did get some systemd-udevd messages until hal loaded.

A/V Wizard - no problems.

Setup Wizard ran with no Sarah A/V.

ifconfig was good, using Nvidia drivers, no Flickr photos.

Confirm Dependencies log showed the usual suspects.

Did update/upgrade with just

report chown: cannot access //var/www/mythweb/data 0 and dpkg:error processing package pluto-mthtv-plugin ( -- confure):

Edited lanman client change in smb.conf and restarted service

Powered up NAS.  NAS discovered.  Volumes detected.  UpdateMedia discovering content.

I built a MD profile, was discovered by the router but failed

Message after fail [    33.396623]  random: nonblocking pool is initialized

On initial install I get waiting for network, waiting 60 more seconds and booting without a full network.

This time I tried physically reversing ethernet cables and trying again but it doesn't matter what physical ethernet wiring is.

Same messaging for network occurs. 

During initial software load I did see a message about /etc/ddclient.conf line 8 Invalid value for keyword 'Login'.

systemd-udevd failed to execute messages were generated but AVWizard did run.

On restart of AVWizard, after A/V parameters selected a bunch of systemd-udevd were generated but ConfirmDependencies build did run.

ifconfig was checked and eth1 & lo was present but no eth0.  Eth1 was dcerouter ip.

LinuxMCE install messages appeared but No Sarah/House Setup wizard.  Rebooted.

No networking messages, ubuntu splash screen sat there.  Eventually LinuxMCE install messages were generated with orbiter screens generated.  Good sign.

Ifconfig showed eth0, eth1 and lo.  No issues with eth0 aliases.

Setup wizard ran without Sarah A/V.

Basically nouveau drivers, no Flickr photos.

General Info Plugin Download Software retried -X3- CIFS Utils (old Samba Utils), Pluto MythTV Plugin, asterisk-perl, Linphone library, EXIF/IPTC metedata manipulation library, Qt GUI Library MT v3, Debian Font Manager, MNG Library, Pluto MythTV Player.

Confirm Dependencies log showed the usual suspects (CIFS Utils (old Samba Utils), Pluto MythTV Plugin, asterisk-perl, Linphone library, EXIF/IPTC metedata manipulation library, Qt GUI Library MT v3, Debian Font Manager, MNG Library, Pluto MythTV Player).

Did update/upgrade with errors for pluto-mythtv-player and plugin.

Edited lanman client change in smb.conf and rebooted.

Powered up NAS.  NAS discovered.  Volumes detected.  UpdateMedia discovering content albeit slowly due to the usual suspects.

The usual suspects tried to download during NAS software discovery - X3.  A little annoying but understandable.

Core/Hybrid with nvidia drivers, Sarah present, no Flickr photos, NAS detected username/password entered - media not updated.

Checked webadmin had to manually add fields to Device #33 File Server #1837 -username/password and check Password Required box.

Manually add fields to Device #34 Volume_1 Windows Share #1768 - username/password, Filesystem, checked read only and Online.

Manually add fields to Device #35 Volume_2 Windows Share # 1768 - Filesystem, checked read only and Online.

Reboot and have to manually check Online for both drives.

In Media Files Sync added LinuxMCE Video Files to get check for exist both on disk and database - did resynch and nothing.

Rebooted, rechecked Online - no media being updated.

Tried service smbd restart - nothing.
