I couldn't tell you the exact commands without actually doing it myself, but you're on the right track using mdadm at the command line. You're correct about there being extra data written on the drive and will have to delete each raid partition using mdadm. I think it's something like:
Code: [Select]
mdadm --stop /dev/md0 to stop the array
Code: [Select]
mdadm --remove /dev/md0 /dev/sda1
mdadm --remove /dev/md0 /dev/sdb1
to remove the disks from the array
Code: [Select]
mdadm --zero-superblock /dev/sda1
mdadm --zero-superblock /dev/sdb1
I've run into this before and after a little googling usually don't have a problem fixing it. I think things have to be done in a specific order is the hardest part. Hope this helps. -Ruben

I just received a new version of the ZCU101 and will try an install with it tonight. I'll posts pictures too if I can as it looks a good bit different. Illuminatii-ish even.

Stuart, I've got the same problem, and haven't found a solution yet. If you're going to try to implement something, I'd suggest taking a look at jinzora which gives you the option of scanning by tag or file structure when you import media. It might give you a code-base to start with. If you do come up with a patch, let me know.

ok, got the usb-uirt and lirc to work together and I think I followed the wiki correctly, but I'm kind of confused where it says:

  "Then edit the device, add a device data "Configuration" and copy the LIRC configuration file into it"

I chose "Configuration" and hit add, gave it a comment, then just put the location of the file (/home/linuxmce/lircd.conf) where it says "Default Value" as that's the only thing I could figure out to do.
So this might be a stupid question but, now what? How do I make sure it's set up properly? Do I have to add a media scenario to turn the tv on when a dvd is put in or what can I do to test that it is working correctly?
Also, right now I've got a gyration mouse hooked up and my tv remote, would it be a good idea to just get one of the Gyration MCE or Fiire remotes to replace the two of them? Either of those are both learning remotes and gyro mice aren't they? I guess this is what I have in mind as the ideal setup for controlling ir gear:

  1 usb-uirt pointed positioned such that it can hit the tv but also accessible to a remote in the majority of the room. Or possibly a second ir emitter plugged in facing the tv so the usb-uirt faces the room. Then one of the GyrationMCE remotes would be able to learn the tv ir codes and control both the tv functions and mouse duties correct? I haven't been able to get my hdhomerun to work with Time Warner here in Austin and being able to access movies on demand and ppv is a showstopper with myth tv so I think I'm going to have to rely pretty heavily on ir. This means for dvds or downloaded movies it would be running off of one connection and using the mouse control, and for live tv, it would use another connection and switch to using normal ir, but does it do that automatically?

And here's how I finally got the usb-uirt to work with lirc:

Code: [Select]
# /etc/lirc/hardware.conf
# Arguments which will be used when launching lircd

#Don't start lircmd even if there seems to be a good config file

#Try to load appropriate kernel modules

# Run "lircd --driver=help" for a list of supported drivers.
# If DEVICE is set to /dev/lirc and devfs is in use /dev/lirc/0 will be
# automatically used instead

# Default configuration files for your hardware if any

after that I can get irrecord, irw and, irsend to work, but not mode2. That should give you the conf file you need. I'm not sure if LMCE actually uses the lirc stuff, but this file should be in /etc/lirc/lircd.conf

ok, I just installed a fresh copy of ubuntu on the same laptop I was having trouble with earlier and I've gotten irrecord to work, so hopefully someone else can help me figure out where to go from there. This is what I've gotten so far:

installed lirc with "apt-get install lirc"

when that's done it says:

  /etc/init.d/lirc start
  ## LIRC IS NOT CONFIGURED                       ##
  ##                                              ##
  ## read /usr/share/doc/lirc/html/configure.html ##
  Starting lirc daemon:.

But it silently fails. I know it's not running using "ps aux |grep lirc".
It seems like no matter what I put in /etc/lirc/hardware.conf, I can't get it to start through /etc/init.d/lirc
BUT: I can get results if I run

  lircd --nodaemon

and then in another terminal:

    irrecord -d /dev/ttyUSB0 -H usb_uirt_raw test.conf

that starts up irrecord which now recognizes my remote and creates a config. I haven't finished a full one yet, but even once I do, I'm not sure how to get the actual lirc daemon to start. -Ruben

pessimist: I was in a similar situation with the a/v wizard being the wrong resolution and having really bad color gradients, but I gave it the benefit of a doubt and when it restarted after finishing, everything was exactly as it should be (a/v-wise). -Ruben

Ok, I just did a fresh install with the 0704 dvd and when I plug in the usb-uirt, it is definitely recognized:

[ 2551.210966] usb 1-2: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 6

and if I tail the USB_UIRT log and press buttons on the remote, I get:

1       08/09/07 18:48:03       33 (spawning-device)    Starting... 1

so I know the remote and usb-uirt can work together under linux in principle at least. I don't have lirc or irrecord installed by default however. If I do a "locate lirc" I see:

dcerouter_1:/etc/X11# locate lirc

The wiki says to use irrecord to generate a lirc conf file and then import it into Linux MCE. Is it alright to apt-get lirc or should it be lirc-pluto? Or is there something else wrong that it's not already installed? -Ruben

that fixed it for me. 3 for component then just followed the a/v wizard. Thanks! -Ruben

Yeah, started there actually. What I got from it is you use irrecord to create a conf file and import it into LinuxMCE. But I can't get irrecord to work at all. I know the usb-uirt and remote work together because I've used them on a windows pc to learn and control the tv. -Ruben

k84: I get almost the exact same you do, the only difference being what I'm guessing is the usb device number (ftdi_sio 2-1:1.0: for me). Here's what I've gotten to happen so far:

I had to manually install lirc:

  apt-get install lirc

which creates three devices: /dev/lirc, /dev/lircd, /dev/lircm I can get irrecord to work with:

  irrecord -d /dev/lircm test.conf

but when it tries to record, it says: "No gap found" and aborts after 10 seconds. No other device will work, they all give the "lircd running?" message. So I reboot.
After rebooting there are no lirc devices.

  ls -lah /dev/lirc*

returns nothing. And I can't start lircd because I don't have a conf file. -Ruben

Same thing on the DVD install. -Ruben

  ls -lah /dev/lirc*

and see what that lists. Like I said, on my system I had 3 lirc* devices listed and could only get one to work with irrecord. Although if I reboot, then I end up with just the /dev/lirc and then get the same thing you are.

  irrecord: could not init hardware (lircd running ? --> close it, check permissions)

Oh, and I'm sure lirc isn't running. -Ruben

try running just irrecord:

  irrecord -f --device=/dev/lirc test.conf

on my system it creates /dev/lirc, /dev/lircm, and /dev/lircd and I have to use --device=/dev/lircm but still can't get any input. Did you have to install lirc on your own, or was irrecord and irw already installed? -Ruben

supposedly you can use irrecord to do that, but my LMCE system doesn't have it installed. When I installed it on an ubuntu studio system, the led on the usb-uirt would light up, but no dots would ever appear in irrecord. I'm wondering if there's a problem with my install because I see pluto-lirc packages, but it doesn't look like any were ever installed. Is there anyway to do a post-install check to make sure everything went ok? I've grepped the pluto install logs and didn't see anything major, mostly mysql errors. -Ruben

I'm pretty sure it says it when you create the user. At least it does on the onscreen setup. Actually come to think of it, if you just go to the admin site without a user created it tells you there as well. -Ruben
