Developers / Re: XBMC linux port...
« on: July 25, 2007, 07:53:21 am »
A problem with XBMC is that it doesn't seem to have network shares of its own.  So it is unable to share it's contents with the rest of the house.

Well I managed to add the CM11 interface and a couple of light switches that were included in the set using the webadmin.  But I can't figure out how to specy their addresses, I think it's the "Port/Channel Number" field in the "Device data" section, but I'm not sure what value to specify there.  And the only page in the wiki I could to find doesn't really tell me either.  So any suggestions you guys could give me would be greatly appreciated.

Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Wii Remote Support
« on: July 25, 2007, 06:20:06 am »
Well I got one today, and yes it not only works but is completely awesome as well.

I just followed sp00nhead's link: with some aditional instructions here: and I had to apt-get the following to build the prerequisites (you might need more): libxosd-dev xosd-bin bluez-hcidump autoconf  automake python-xlib python-pygame also modifying the /etc/X11/xorg.conf is tricky as it seems to get overwritten a lot.

Seems to me there are only 2 things that need to be done to support the Wiimote plug and play:
1. Make debian packages out of the needed software (as far as that hasn't been done already).
2. Configure LMCE to recognize and configure it automaticly (already shows up, but as mobile phone).

I think I could manage the first, but I will need help with the second one from a more experienced veteran.  Would be really nice to just turn it on and select "Use this device as Wiimote" (or maybe something more general) and then light a few candles since you don't have a led-bar yet either.  ;)

Thanks for the reply, I think you are right this machine has way to little memory and I can't get at the (SCSI) disk to get some swapspace either for some reason. 

I left the machine on overnight and it got all the way to the AV-setup wizzard (but does not seem to get past the resolution/refreshrate selection).  So I guess that answers my original question.

I tried removing all it's devices except for the ones I want/need, but I cannot seem to get rid of the mythtv-backend, it keeps getting started anyway.  All I really wanted from it is to be able to use it's (SCSI) cdrom drive, it was a nice experiment anyway.  And I might make a wiki page on how to pxe-boot machines with grub instead of the usual nic-bios.

If that's all you wanted, then why didn't you just stop after installing Ubuntu?  Or am I missing the point here and there is something Vista can do but Ubuntu can't?

I'm having some trouble running an old pentium-1 machine (586) as a media director, could it be that the LMCE (1.1 Beta2) binaries are optimized for 686 and higher?

There could be other reasons as well so I'm hoping that someone who tried running on anything less then an 686 can either confirm or deny this.

Installation issues / Re: 2 Network cards needed for core ?
« on: July 23, 2007, 06:30:01 pm »

I just read this:
"I have 2 network cards, one connected to my cable modem, the other to my home's ethernet switch"
- from the What to expect LinuxMCE wiki.

Does this mean I have to have two network cards in my linucMCE core (hybrid) for all this to work and have it connected between the modem and router?

The short answer is: yes it does.  Allthough it is possible to install a core (or hybrid) with only one physical network interface it is not recommended.

Installation issues / Re: MCE 1.1 Beta 2 and Nvidia Driver issue
« on: July 23, 2007, 05:11:01 pm »
You might want to have a look at the Display Drivers Wiki page.


7. Right click on the "mce-installer_2.0.1-1_i386.deb" and select the option to install the package.

I didn't notice the name at first, downloaded and burnt on cd, but then when I was about to install I noticed the i386 part of the filename..

I've got an AMD Sempron 3200+, so guess I should find an amd64-version of the linuxmce packages?

At least with kubuntu download I had to choose between i386 and amd64..

Any suggestions on where to get the amd64-version, if it exists, or will the i386-file work fine?


There is no amd64 version of LMCE (yet).  Just use Kubuntu 7.04 i386 with LMCE-1.1 Beta2 for now, in my experience it won't even try to install on the amd64 version of Kubuntu.

The command you're looking for is mv (short for move), this should do it:
Code: [Select]
sudo mv /usr/pluto/bin/ /usr/pluto/bin/ copy the downloaded script over, supposing you are in the same directory as the file, and it already has the right name:
Code: [Select]
sudo cp /usr/pluto/bin/Or alternatively, for instance if it was put elsewhere or under a different name:
Code: [Select]
sudo cp [<path>/]<file-name> /usr/pluto/bin/ripDiskWrapper.shSetting the right permissions:
Code: [Select]
sudo chmod 755 /usr/pluto/bin/ripDiskWrapper.shAnd you should be done.

The script seems to be working fine for me, altho I haven't checked the actual tags yet.  If there's anything in particular you'd like me to try or look at to verify let me know.  I am using FLAC btw.

On another note, Lame wasn't installed by default, so ripping to MP3
failed outright. I'm surprised it wasn't installed by default by
LinuxMCE.  Can anyone else confirm this?

I haven't tried using MP3s, but this is what's installed on my Kubuntu-7.04 + LMCE-1.1B2 machine:

zaerc@dcerouter:~$ dpkg -l | grep -i lame
ii  liblame0                                3.96.1-2ubuntu1                                                   LAME Ain't an MP3 Encoder

I hope that answers your question.  Thanks for the updated script, I was wondering why that seemed messed up a bit so I'll give it a spin.

Users / Re: Building a core ideas?
« on: July 19, 2007, 07:36:30 pm » has a few mainboards now, that should help get you started.

If I recall correctly the Kubuntu install doesn't even offer you that choice, it just installs the default kernel which has SMP enabled.  So I reckon this won't be an issue.  Apart from that, the MDs don't have to use the same kernel as the Core per se, I have updated the kernel (just recompiled with a small patch really) on my core and the diskless MDs are still using the original kernel.

I suppose I could test with a single-CPU core installation and an SMP MD, but then I'd have to reconfigure most of my network and I'm not *that* bored.

Have you looked under "Files & Media" in the webadmin interface?
