Installation issues / Re: Intel NUC D54250WY problem
« on: June 12, 2014, 05:38:26 pm »
Posde: No, because the default diskless kernel literally causes a kernel panic due to the missing e1000e driver.

As I said before, what I wrote above is preliminary, but basically, I had to make sure everything was up to date on the core, install the saucy kernel, rebuild the default kernel, rebuild the system image, boot the md, let it do its diskless setup, mine skipped over AV Wizard, so I rebooted into AV wizard, and let it do its thing..then I installed the xorg saucy, and made sure va-api stuff was up to date.

Okay, so.

I have the 52450 here, and yes.. it takes some work to get going. I will have to write up a detailed procedure, but, the gist of it is:

Basically, the 54250 NUC has new enough hardware, that the default kernel for precise will not handle it (missing drivers for both the Intel GMA5000 GPU, and the Intel e1000e ethernet adapter.), There is, however, a backport of saucy's kernel and xorg drivers which will remedy this.

Assuming the media director isn't configured (and if it is, you need to delete it)

* install linux-generic-lts-trusty kernel on core
* run /usr/pluto/bin/Diskless_BuildDefaultImage.sh to make the trusty kernel the new pxe boot default for unconfigured media directors
* alter /usr/pluto/bin/Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh, line 472, to be TARGET_KVER_LTS_HES="-lts-saucy"
* run Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh, get a few cups of coffee.
* boot the media director, it should do Diskless_Setup.sh
* reload router.
* let it build, and reboot.
* it should go into AV Wizard.
* Do the AV wizard, let it install everything.

At this point, ConfirmDependencies will try to install the standard packages for X... This is not what we want, so...

open a shell and go to the md, and apt-get install xserver-xorg-lts-saucy

At this point, reboot the md again.

You should then be able to go to the wizard > media directors, find the NUC, and then select vaapi under video acceleration, reload router.

At this point you should have full functionality with the NUC, including VA-API.

You can double check, with CPU usage, with blu-ray movies, you should not see CPU usage over 10%.

If you see more, or stuttering photo screen saver, make sure that the correct xorg is installed, and connect to Xine_Player's screen session to see if the correct driver is being loaded, or if an error results.

if it freezes again,

connect via ssh, and do

Code: [Select]
$ top

and observe, look for processes taking up 100% or more CPU time. is it X?

Thanks, have you filed a bug in trac? We'll fix this. :)

What would it take for us to add direct support for the Logitech UE? I do think that maybe a seperate device template would be in order, at least...but can newer versions of LMS handle both UE and Squeeze clients?

Do you remember the conversation we had many months ago, how you could help best, given what you do on a daily basis?

Find a money source so that I can work on LinuxMCE every day for the rest of my life. That's how you can help. :)

I need to do a _LOT_ of engineering work on the media browser.

A _lot_.

Due to the way the code is structured, the changes that I need to make, are difficult to wrap in my own head (I can't speak for anyone else), and require changes to _both_ Orbiter and the Media Plugin to work properly. It will be gruesome, and I will probably need to make a separate branch to do the work, as I will need a significant chunk of free time to do this.

I plan to make the following changes to the media browser:

* Collapse items with the same title. This will essentially allow items with the same title (e.g. Grey's Anatomy or Babylon 5), to be shown as a single item, that can be drilled down into. Showing sub views as needed (Season, Episode, falling to title with episode name if none of these other attributes are present). This is _very_ difficult, as it requires me to change the Title view (which in reality uses a variant of the Filename view logic, with lots of fall through if a title isn't available, etc.), to use the attribute view instead, I will have to fuse many of the little things that are present in the title view (files without titles, etc.), into the Attribute view, and not let things fall through the cracks. I've attempted this before, and realized that it will take hundreds of hours of debugging, because of the state permutations (the code is shared between media types, etc.). Shit will be weird for a while.

* Add recently Added sort type. (This will take some additions to UpdateMedia, as we don't currently record a creation timestamp in the File table).

* Tapping Recordings should show a media grid of TV recordings from mythTV in the orbiter, not using MythTV's UI.

There is more, but I am tired, and I still have many hours of contract work to do tonight. I'll dump more as I think of it.

So much work needs to be done to make MythTV work better in LMCE, in my opinion, a whole new Myth Player based on embedding the recently refactored libmyth from 0.25 forward would be the best choice, but it will take a considerable amount of engineering to make it work well.

Unfortunately, this isn't very high on my priority list, because MythTV just doesn't work very well anymore even by itself. The greedy, meiopic, pieces of shit who run the broadcast/cable/satellite TV industries have made it a living hell to bolt on your own PVR to their feeds. I can't use MythTV realistically at all for anything except for Antenna feeds. And just about everybody else in the US is in this boat. This pretty much kills it for me.

That, or... get a newer video card, perhaps? :)

What _can_ you do with the lock in unsecured mode ?

"Hi, are you a lock?"
"Yes, I am indeed, a lock."

Don't use the 8xxx series cards with VDPAU...the 8300 does not support it correctly, and the 8500 is the first gen, which doesn't do all that much to help you.

Go for it. Is it a swallowable window? If so, it can be added as a media type/player, or alternatively as a media source in the media browser view (which does have a concept of downloadable/streamable content, but nothing is using it yet.)
