Users / Re: NAS - FreeNAS, LMCE or something else?
« on: July 12, 2014, 04:46:49 pm »
I have running with Raid Z2 and sporadically run a rsync to a drive I plug into the nas and then move to a remote location. I already had multiple drives failing (twice 2 simultaneously) therefor I am happy with a Z2 solution although resilvering takes a long time.

I ended up adding to  /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
Code: [Select]
Section "Extensions"
       Option "Composite" "Disable"
seems to do the trick and stop the tearing.

Happily running Mythtv 0.28 using

I created a script to install and configure the device that might also be usable on other devices that run ubuntu flavors (there did not seem to be anything joggler specific in the wikipage). Did not test it though. If anybody has such a device feel free to supply some feedback and/or improve it. I wrote some explanation on how to install/use it:

Users / wrong resolution on hybrid/MD after boot
« on: April 15, 2014, 03:40:31 pm »
I have my nvidia hdmi output going through my amp and when it boots and the amp is off it boots into the wrong resolution and I have to reboot it. Anyone experienced this and knows how this can be fixed?

phenigma explained that this is by design. Currently you need to add the template as a child device of the Core or a MD (instead of adding it via the Wizard | A/V Equipment because then it will be a child of Slim Streaming Server and wont get started) and then set the configuration (output device, MAC) and after a quick reload router it works.

I gave 0.27 another try and apparently something else changed because now it is running fine.

Also the tearing seems to be gone.

We do not have mythtv 0.26 in LinuxMCE.  The latest version is 0.25.
I don't think my question regarding composite was version related but it might of course be caused by the mythtv version... ;-).

0.25 missing stuff, with that version I had no way to get a working setup.

0.27 was working but very unstable.

so 0.26 seems to be the best choice. just have to get rid of the tearing.

Go ahead and perfect it by providing something like USB image that people can put onto stick, plug into their jogglers and everything happens automagically with a single question on the device ID.
Currently the script needs to run on the core and not on the joggler. I suppose a pnp detection script could be made to ask if the user wants to install it if lmce/dhcp detects a new openpeak device and either prompt the user for an existing orbiter or create a new one.

The user still has to flash the device themselves that way. I have no idea how much work it is to create such a detection script and therefore don't know if it is worth the effort knowing those jogglers are not for sale anymore.

just type 'mount' on the joggler and it will show you the mounts it's having.

Users / Joggler install script
« on: April 03, 2014, 06:26:11 pm »
I created a script to install the orbiter (12.04) on squeezeplayOS on the joggler ( You first need to flash squeezeplayOS on the joggler and then running this script will configure&install everything on the joggler (all that remains is creating the orbiter via the web interface)
The script displays some usage info when running it. Just put it on your core and run it (takes about 20 minutes or so).

What I found is that during the apt upgrade process update-initramfs fails which is annoying. If somebody knows how to fix that I will include it. (

Unfortunately the Orbiter seems to eat a lot of cpu power when going into screensaver mode (about 4 times as much) and even more when showing that nice clock that Thom made (about 7!!! times). If anybody can fix that....

I made a dirty hack to move the mousepointer out of the way which is not a nice solution but needs to do for now. (Thom said he already tried to fix the orbiter behavior regarding that but has not succeeded thus far. Again: anyone capable and willing.....

This also prevented me from switching the screen off. Using 'xset dpms force off' turns it off but it is put back on within a split second.

Attach is the file containing the install script and the config files required by it.

I am using it wired.

Just doing the update, upgrade and installation of the packages give me this error. It is trying to change create a symbolic link on the /boot partition that mount shows is vfat:

/dev/mmcblk0p1 on /boot type vfat (rw)

which does not support symbolic links I suppose.

Is yours also vfat?
How to prevent it trying to create that link?

But besides this it seems to work.

Developers / hide mouse cursor on orbiter on joggler
« on: April 02, 2014, 03:46:31 pm »
I wondered if it is possible to hide the mouse cursor on joggler when on the orbiter. I also tried as described here:

it mentions that if it does not work it is because of the program being executed. Could it be that it needs to be changed in the orbiter?

Which part specifically is giving that issue? Did you replace the sources.list as instructed? Are you running the commands as root?

It does it all the time now when running apt. I replaced all the sources and besides this error it seems to work. (still seeing the mousecursor though). Only this error is annoying because it shows on everything that gets installed.
