Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Electric Sheep visualizations ftw?

Sounds like an excellent idea, I'd vote for that. I seem to remember a friends XBox media center does something along those lines, and it does help make the entire thing look more stylish.

Installation issues / Re: MythTV Black Screen with just a Mouse...
« on: May 14, 2007, 09:29:37 am »
I had what sounds like the same problem, tried multiple installations with the same results. Tried again this weekend, but the only difference was that I didn't select a dedicated LinuxMCE install, I said I wanted Ubuntu and LinuxMCE. Once I did that I got past the problem.

Hope that helps

No setting found for this machine's BackendServerIP.
Please run setup on this machine and modify the first page
of the general settings.

So it looks like there isn't a config for this machine, but I already went through the admin panel and told it what room this machine is in, is there something I missed (well, obviously yes, but what?).

The machine was dedicated core, as in not the normal Ubuntu Gnome desktop, but I installed the full LMCE packages, not just the core ones on this box.


Installation issues / Black screen with mouse pointer
« on: April 04, 2007, 10:49:15 am »
After several attempts, I finally managed to get the LMCE install to run all the way through, but after rebooting it comes up with a blank screen, with the mouse pointer visible. Mouse moves, but that is all I get. I can get to the admin web page through another computer, and have created and put my core into a room, causing the rebuild of the screens, which I could see progressing on the screen of the core, but after that it went back to  blank.

Can't seem to find any mention of this scenario in the docs or this forum. Anyone come across this before? Doesn't appear to be a video driver or config issue, otherwise I wouldn't see the mouse pointer.


Installation issues / libjack0.100.0-0 is not available
« on: March 30, 2007, 08:45:43 am »
Trying to install Linuxmce on a fresh install of Ubuntu 6.10, to which I have already done an apt-get update, and I get the following in the LMCE installer log

Code: [Select]
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  pluto-dcerouter: PreDepends: mythtv-backend but it is not going to be installed
                   PreDepends: mythtv-backend but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

Trying to to apt-get install mythtv-backend, results in

Code: [Select]
$ sudo apt-get install mythtv-backend
Reading package lists... Done

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  mythtv-backend: Depends: libjack0.100.0-0 (>= 0.101.1) but it is not installable
                  Depends: libmyth-0.20 but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

If I try to install libmyth it complains about libjack not being installable, libjack in turn....

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install libjack0.100.0-0
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package libjack0.100.0-0 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package libjack0.100.0-0 has no installation candidate

So, obviously I am missing the appropriate repository to install libjack from. Anyone got any ideas which one I'm supposed to have? /etc/apt/sources.list follows

Code: [Select]
# Pluto sources - start
deb file:/usr/pluto/deb-cache/ ./
deb edgy main restricted multiverse universe
deb edgy-security main restricted multiverse universe
deb edgy-updates main restricted multiverse universe
deb ./
#deb ./
# Pluto sources - end



Just did a clean reinstall from the Ubuntu 6.10 CD, this time not doing an apt-get update, and still get exactly the same results on the Linux MCE install.


Never mind. I removed an extra Netgear gigabit NIC and some multi channel video capture cards I had for doing security cameras at some point in the future and the install worked. I guess it was the capture cards, seems strange that they could cause a failure to find a package but I'll look into that at some later date. New thread started for my next problem!
