Installation issues / Re: Issues with 0710 RC
« on: April 24, 2008, 07:45:27 am »
Now now, that seems rather harsh! I believe they're doing a wonderful job.
(I just wish I could contribute in a way, but after 4 years of Linux use I still haven't written a single application for it! - This is what you get when they taught you VB or in school, you get too lazy to code in a real language!)

Anyhow, I'm going to make a clean-install on my HybridCore tonight, I've done so much damage to it since january I really think it's necessary.

Hmm, interesting problem .... What version of LinuxMCE are you using anyway?

I'm planning on buying a Sharp LCD myself next week (the LC-42X20E) I hope to get it up and running through the RS-232 port and all, looking forward to it actually!

There is nothing to compile, the link has a compiled jar file and jad in it. you just need to get these to your phone and then also add a mobile orbiter to lmce.

I just let the phone get discovered, told it, it was a s60 phone which sets up the lmce stuff. Sent the jar/jad top the phone via bluetooth and installed it.
The only other change that I've done is change the resolution for the mobile orbiter to match my phone and then regenerate.
My phone is a N73 as well so there is not much use sending pictures.


My apologies, but in my previous post I was not referring to compiling the java program, but to applying the BD patch in LMCE, as hari said here:

the patch went into the trunk but I assume it was not copied to the 0710 release branch..
you need to patch BD and compile it yourself..

best regards,

I have no problems waiting until next beta release, I was just a bit curious as to how long it would take for it too arrive. Human nature and all.

When is the next beta arriving, anyway? (Or RC or whatever :))
Call me lazy, but I'm not in a compiling mood (that and I don't have enough bandwith to spare! Somehow 54 GiBs a month aren't enough!)

Looks cool though, does anyone have any example pictures of the app on a real phone? :P

Aaah, finally! :) Can't wait to get my hands on it

Well, that is the Antec Fusion V1 then, the V2 does have an IR receiver (I swear :))

Getting it to work is something completely different, of course :P

Yours does not have the IR function? Huh, that's strange ... Is it the Antec Fusion V2?

Ugh, rhis is all so very confusing, getting these to work on linux is one thing, getting them to work on lmce is something completely different!

Anyone having any thoughts about this?

Hmm, gues I'll have to wait for some more documentation to come out, 'cause I can't make heads or tails of this thing ...

Does hte device location (the *actual* device, err, /dev/lcd0) also have to be scripted in ruby?)

I fear there are just waay too many textboxes, checkboxes, templates, ... to know about for the "end user" to be able to use this :P Especially without documentation...

... to get our devices working? :)

If I'm not mistaken you need to create a seperate "driver" for LMCE (even if linux can work with it, maybe lmce can't, right?) so what do we need to do to help you get our devices working? (and then I'm talking about my Antec fusion's VFD and IR receiver and my remote control and such, ...)

True, true, the original compile failed on my box too, but that's a pretty old thread, meant for a previous ubuntu version. If you read the entire thread (which is a pain, I know) then you can find a solution... Errr, hold on, I'll try to give you my method:

Install lirc and the lirc-modules-kernel version-generic

After this you need to load the lirc_imon module:

modprobe lirc_imon (add "lirc_imon" to your /etc/modules file to start it at boot)

Now it has made a /dev/lcd0 file, except I wasn't able to write to it... so I had to chmod it (and I have to do this after every boot):

chmod 666 /dev/lcd0

And now you can output to the display! (But only up to 32 chars, otherwise it'll give you some error)

echo -n "Hello" > /dev/lcd0

I'm using LMCE 0710 beta 3. I know I need to fix a lot more (like that knob or that infrared thing or the chmod thing) but that's for later

How do you install lcd-proc? It isn't on my system now - tried apt-get install lcd-proc.... says there is no such package...

Might be an incredible stupid suggestion but ... Have you updated your package list? :P

The first time you use apt-get on linuxmce the package list is rather empty... :)

I also believe it's called lcdproc

This thread really helped me, btw:

At least I can manually print things out on the screen :D

When will somebody get to coding the thing, anyway? Does any developer want to SSH into *my* device (hey, they did this while developping plcbus drivers :))

I am using this mother board on 2 MD's now and I can reccomend it on both Core and MD.

What case do you use for your MDs? I'm having a hard time finding something that can be tucked away as easily as the Fiire products.

My Hybrid/Core:

Asus P5KPL-MV (Wanted to use another one, but was the only decent µATX mobo that I could find)
2 GB Memory
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 (2.4 Ghz) 4 Mb (-- I bought this one for 300 euros last year, now I bought an E8200 for a lot less then half this, which currently resides in my regular computer :))

And I'm planning on getting a TT-budget S2-3200, DVB-S2 card. I currently have a regular Hercules Smart TV 2 Stereo, but getting that to work decently is a nightmare.

You misunderstand, I'm not confused at all, I need those open ports for all my local services, running on my regular computer. (SSH, FTP, ports for azureus)

Anyhow, I've decided to set up a static IP for all my regular computers and let all the lmce devices get it from the core's dhcp server...

Errr, almost!

They're actually both on the same subnet... So, the router is on and the core is on

But the main problem - my damn ports- still remain! I can't open them!

The firewall on the core is completely off, but I can't do the same for the router (ay, proprietary firmware, gotta love it) I can only grant 1 "DMZ" status, I've tried to give it to my computer,, but that didn't work. I also tried to give it to the core but *nothing*...

Adding virtual servers also doesn't work (port forwarders) I'm at a complete loss...
