It has an option to enable one of the Ethernet Ports as the WAN which is what I have done and connected an ethernet cable from eth1 to the Wan port.
...
And there is your problem.  Undo that, make sure the DHCP is turned off and connect the core's eth1 to a normal LAN port.

 * WARNING: This changes the default samba behaviour. For security
    reasons, it is no longer possible to use wide links and UNIX
    extensions at the same time. After applying this security update, wide
    links will be disabled automatically as UNIX extensions are turned on
    by default. If wide links are required, you may re-enable them by
    adding "unix extensions = no" to the [global] section of
    the /etc/samba/smb.conf configuration file.

Apparently LinuxMCE depends on that feature, so try changing unix extensions = yes to unix extensions = no in the /etc/samba/smb.conf config file.  If that fixes it, don't forget to update the template in /usr/pluto/templates/smb.conf.template as well.

The symlinks in /usr/pluto/disless/moon#/boot are probably broken.  Make sure the vmlinuz and initrd symlinks are pointing to the right files.  Correcting this should at least fix the error you're having.  You may also need to check the symlinks in /tftpboot/moon#.

Man, you're really looking for an argument, aren't you?
Unlike you apparently. :P

If you believe that is unrelated, then why bring it up in the first place?
I mentioned this in relation to your comment saying people who aren't helping should just shut up.
I'm not the one bringing up unrelated issues, just to turn around and say they aren't related.  And where exactly am I telling anyone to "just shut up"?

So now people aren't allowed to have an opinion which discourages other people from making a mess of things?
If you read the rest of the thread, you'll see even Thom accepted he was a little agressive on that one!
Now you are just making stuff up, I have read the this entire thread, I don't see Thom "accepting" anything.  But I guess that is your way of confirming that people aren't allowed to voice an opinion which discourages other people from making a mess of things.  In other words you're the one telling them to shut up (pot, kettle, surprise!).  And how exactly does that encourage discussion?


And would you mind not distorting what other people say?  Thanks in advance.

So how exactly do you expect that making a complicated mess of your home network will actually help with PXE booting?
This is, believe me, unrelated. At present, I have not (personally) made any changes to my network and have been using a similar aproach to the one you outlined with moving cables (the main difference is that when I'm not there, MCE is out of the loop). The PXE boot issue is discussed elsewhere and it would be silly to make comment here. If you think you can help, please take a look at this thread http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=9862.0
If you believe that is unrelated, then why bring it up in the first place?

And who or what is preventing anyone from discussing their needs then?  Surely not my remark about using beta software for a production environment... Or does that imply that only they are entitled to an opinion?
Nobody is preventing it per-se, but do comments like
GUYS!
STOP DOING THIS!

Please! just use the system as it is meant to be used, put everything on one network, let the core control and provision. It really does work!

Damn it, I'm getting _VERY_ tired of yelling at you all.

Actually encourage discussion?

Anyway, like I said, I think this discussion has run its course. and has certainly digressed from the OP's original question!

Zaerc,

I think offence is being taken when none is intended. This thread (as far as I can tell) started, like so many similar ones, by people trying to support each other in making the system more reliable whilst in beta. It attracted, as always, criticism and this discussion ensued.
And unless you are actually helping to get a release out the door you'd probably be better off keeping your frustration to yourself.
Please remember that help is not just sitting there coding. Without people trying to use it and having issues, a lot of the problems would not be found prior to release, that's what beta is all about (I've often heard it said that the world is Micro$oft's Beta test site ;)) In my own case, I'm having problems with the PXE boot of my MDs (I'm not alone, from what I've seen on the threads). As well as asking for help here, I am investigating elsewhere and, if I find the solution, I will report it and hopefully it will be integrated into the release. Is that not helping in some small way?

For my own part, I thought your comment about using Beta software seemed to conflict with other comments (not only from Thom) about not bothering with 710 and just going to 810. Maybe I misunderstood.

Anyway, I think enough has been said on this subject. There are clearly strongly held views! It is also clear that some people (for various reasons) need or want to use the system non-standard. I don't see that they should be prevented from discussing their needs here thoigh....

So how exactly do you expect that making a complicated mess of your home network will actually help with PXE booting?

I made a general statement, and I stand by it. 

I said nothing about linuxmce, or the new version taking long to emerge, or the old version no longer being supported simply because the people who developed it are long gone (and never bothered to support anyone except the fiire customers anyway).  I never told anyone to upgrade or not, and as far as I know my views do not conflict with Thom's as I doubt he'd recommend anyone to use the beta version for a production environment that people depend on.

However some of the "clever" people around here seem to think that using a beta version gives them the right to bitch about their production systems getting fucked up.  Newsflash: your family and the abuse you put them through is no concern of ours.  And unless you are actually helping to get a release out the door you'd probably be better off keeping your frustration to yourself.  Now does that clear things up a bit?


Anyway, the simple emergency solution to faillure?

modem (DHCP) <---> LMCE (DHCP) <---> switch <---> ...

When the core breaks connect the switch directly to the modem.

modem (DHCP) <-------------------------> switch <---> ...

So one wire replug and a DHCP refresh later and everyone has internet again.

Thom,

I too am getting very tired of seeing this come up time and time again. Every time, I see it, I just wait for one of your infamous "*Thwack*"'s ;)

BUT

The fact is that MCE is still Beta. The fact is that when you update, you sometimes break things. The fact is that if you use it "as designed" (at the moment) you are introducing a single point of failure that is, at bast, a little flakey.

I'm still playing and so have to wait for a "lull" in the family's internet use before I (secretly) swap everyone to the internal network for some testing. I cannot, however, afford for the internet to stop working when I'm at work, so I always swap them all back when I've finished.

I WANT to follow the rules. I WANT to avoid *Thwacks*. I WANT to not have to re-think it all, but at the moment I CAN'T (at least not if my marriage is to survive!)

Jut my 10 Eurocents.
If you use beta software for a production environment you are an idiot and deserve everything you get.

And there's my 2 eurocent.

Hi,
Having video-file.avi and video-file.srt on the same diretory (videos), i can watch the video, but the subtitles are not shown.
Did not test yet, but would also have it working for mkv and other formats.....
How can i force pluto-xine to show the subtitles?
TIA,
Paulo

Try renaming/copying/symlinking video-file.srt to video-file.avi.srt.

Somehow I missed out on this.

Now the question is - how can we get Hari one of these smoke alarms ?

Viking
Step 1: Buy one.
Step 2: Send it to him.
Step 3: Success!
