Installation issues / Re: 14.04 No sound over HDMI

What happens when you clone the HDD to SSD? ie no new install, but just clone the existing install.

Plugging the old HDD in makes the sound work again?

Try it :)

If all fails, just install something else. For an automation server the requirements are very low.

Seems the need to update the tftpd server grows...

Background: atftpd only supports downloads up to 32MB - I'll see what I can do create some new packages that will probably pull some other tftpd server in.

The files are still to large. I wonder if this has to do with some modules that are being compiled for your nvidia card.

And does it work now? If not, what errors do you see? And paste the ls information you pasted above again.

Google for chroot mounting dev and proc  - do that outside the chroot, and try again.

Your list is strange.

Your initrd image is 34468576 bytes big. It is named initrd.img-3.16.0-77-generic, but initrd.img-3.16.0-77-generic on my system is only 28213576 bytes. However, a new kernel (initrd.img-4.4.0-62-generic)  is around 34 million bytes.

This looks like something got screwed.

See what happens when you a reinstall of linux-image-3.16.0-77-generic, ie.
Code: [Select]
chroot /usr/pluto/diskless/86
apt-get install --reinstall linux-image-3.16.0-77-generic
exit

and try booting again.

The maximum size our current tftp server supports is <32MB

As you seem to have issues with your IRC connection, here are a couple of hints:

* ls -l the relevant directories (tftpboot, diskless/xx, diskless/xx/boot, and paste output in here.
* cut the relevant log information, and paste in here.

oh, and a note on multizone playback: Audio multizone playback is already working very nice due to phenigma's work with software Squeezeboxes on rpis. I did a 9 rpi install on Cyprus and the audio sync worked perfect.

VLC on rpi is possible, but has issues due to no direct support for hardware acceleration. There is some work in the VLC/RPI community to get the omxplayer acceleration code into VLC. No idea when that might happen.

People are using qOrbiter on RPI, but I have no idea how far it is in terms of being replacement for the onscreen Orbiter.

If a file can't be played hardware assisted, I just go ahead and recode it with ffmpeg. But most just work.

If you take game player out of the mix, I do not see anything the rpis can't do. Granted, I didn't yet get of my butt to make the VDR Player work for the rpi, but it is on my radar of things to do. Probably as soon as SD TV is being turned off in Germany, I'll go and bite the bullet. The VDR Player device itself is already being built, iirc, so it is just a matter of installing the necessary vdr packages.

Garath,

I have yet to see a working LinuxMCE install with a HDMI matrix switch. Support for the matrix switch is one of the things that set Dianemo apart from LinuxMCE.

For MDs, I do not see a need for virtualisation due to the availability and support of RPIs.

HDMI matrix switches only use, imho, would be, if you need to run settop boxes to get to your daily dose of TV broadcasts from a PayTV provider.
