Installation issues / Re: Installing Diskless MDs
« on: April 03, 2017, 11:33:59 pm »
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.

Could you open the branch under Onscreen Orbiter, please.

If removal of the records is the thing that helps,

TRUNCATE from PnpQueue

might be the better option.

Correct. But it was my understanding in the past that after the Kubuntu requirement was nullified, that it basically didn't matter what Ubuntu you installed. Good to have the information that people should use the default desktop version.

phenigma,

thanks for the note on the single nic, and for the verification of the apt-get install. I knew you had done some stuff in that direction, but never looked. The time that I installed two LinuxMCE systems a day are long gone :D and you know what they say about playing with your live system and SWMBO...

Let's see what my friend comes up with, and if he is happy with what we have atm. He wants to have the ability to switch to different output devices from a single MD... kids and their ideas.

After looking at it a bit more, I'll ask a friend of mine, who wants to dip his toe into LinuxMCE to do the following for his i386 install:
Code: [Select]
add-apt-repository http://deb.linuxmce.org/ubuntu/
apt-get -q update
DEBIAN_FRONTEND="noninteractive" apt-get -y -q --allow-unauthenticated install lmce-hybrid | tee $(basename $0 | cut -d'.' -f1).log

basically was the netinstall does, with the exception of working for Ubuntu only.

Is it safe to say, that apt-get install lmce-core after adding the repo to an ubuntu system, should install a core-only system?

Phenigma,

yes, single nic might already be an option. It is a long time I looked at it.

Headless is possible, but atm we still need one for initial setup. polly's work on a web based setup wizard somehow didn't really finish. And the main thing is, that headless is currently something that is not a thing you select, especially during setup. You can easily do it by altering autostartmedia to 0 but for the initial setup it is not, iirc.

A DHCP server needs to be running. Does it need to run on the DCERouter? Only if you want auto-detection for network devices to work. Granted, most want that eventually, but for people who want to just dip their toes into LinuxMCE I think a pure DCERouter running on a regular Linux machine can already do a lot of things.

If no DHCP server is running on DCERouter, the entries that *a* dhcpd.conf entry for a specific device would need, could be presented to the user, or written into a seperate dhcpd.conf file. Right now, we already create a dhcpd.conf file which contains an import statement at the end, for site specifics that a user might want. We could, extend this, and create importable dhcpd.conf files for each device that we create, and link to those files instead of writing all the data into dhcpd.conf. This small importable dhcpd conf file could than be used by the user on a different dhcpd server easily.

Again, my view on this is, that a lot of things work without overtaking the network part or even the XServer.

Just throwing ideas into the wild here. Feedback VERY much appreciated.
