Users / silly question
« on: September 30, 2009, 09:17:34 am »
I just want to make sure what happens, so just don't bite my head off:
I recently added a new harddisk to my core and told it to use linuxmce filestructure. Now I need to reinstall the the whole system. When the new install finds this drive and asks me to use the linuxmce filestructure again, what happens to the existent content on that disk? Will it be wiped off, or does linuxmce recognize the structure and just put it back where it belongs?

Like I said, I just want to make sure....

Installation issues / [SOLVED- at last]eee-box 202 and lmce 8.10
« on: July 21, 2009, 07:28:43 pm »
Last weekend I tried my luck with the latest 8.10 alpha. I installed it on my core and after having done that part successfully proceeded setting up my MD (eee-box 202)
As I read here before it should be supported out of the box, since the drivers for the nic have been included now, unlike in 7.10. So I had high hopes and didn't expect much of a problem.
Unfortunately I got a "kernel-panic - not syncing" I got past the message "We announce ourselves to the core"...shortly before the kernel-panic I noticed eth0 link down.
I read here in the forum, that there might be some issue with ACPI, so I went to the Bios and changed the value (don't remember if it was enabled or disabled) and tried again-without luck

So does anyone here have a eee-box running successfully with 8.10 and if so- how did you make it?

Guys, I am contemplating on making the switch to the current version 8.10 (alpha2?). I am currently running 7.10. So far it is running rather nicely, except for some glitches with my MD (eee-box) where I had to rebuild and patch up the image several times...and some media files which I can't play because they don't show up on the orbiters.
So far so good, the only remaining question is, whether or not my TV-card will be supported out of the box already, or if I have to manually install it, like I had to do on 7.10
Thanks in advance

Installation issues / eee box troubles
« on: January 04, 2009, 04:11:53 pm »
Hello friends,

yesterday I became a supposedly happy owner of an Asus eee Box. I read about the pxe-boot issues and tried to replicate the steps in the wiki about the unkown nic together with this one:
I also have two different cpu-architectures running. The Core/Hybrid is running in 64bit and the EEE Box, obviously, 32bit. I manually generated the MD with the Admin-Website. Since LMCE was a bit stubborn and insisted the EEE Box to get only the 64bit-Package, I did some research and found out, that you had to go to Mediadirector-> Advanced (for the appropriate MD)->Device Template View. This will open a pop-up, where you have to edit Entry #112 to i386 as well as #233 to LMCE_MD_u0710_i386 . For the latter you should also tick the Allowed to modify. Save and Close. This will automatically change the 64bit MD to 32bit and generate a new image.
So then I proceeded to follow the instructions to include the correct driver for the NIC. I finally succeeded with the available r8168.ko from Sethj and followed his instructions for the Asus M3A78-EM.
After that the EEE-Box finally started booting....BUT
I get the following error:
nfs: server is not responding, still trying
This goes on for several minutes. Eventually the booting resumes. I can get through the AV-Wizard and complete the setup. As soon as the onscreen-Orbiter starts however, the whole system freezes. I can still move the mouse, but thats about it.
What are your experiences so far with the EEE-Box? Any hints for me, how to do this? Or perhaps this is still a NIC-issue? I also tried to download the Realtek drivers, but the version they are offering is already higher than the one mentioned in the wiki

Installation issues / orbiter remote for TV- cannot stop
« on: December 22, 2008, 12:35:27 pm »
Hello friends,

yesterday I put a WINTV Nova-HD-S2 in my box. I followed the wiki to set it up with VDR. Initially I had some problems with the firmware, but I finally got it all to work. Now the only problem I have is, that I cannot stop the TV-playback. Pressing Power on the remote doesn't work and tapping the off-button on the orbiter-remote doesn't work either. So far the only way to stop it is to start playing a movie.

edit: I did have some problems with the scanning. I downloaded the mentioned ini-file and tried to scan. I always got parsing-errors for every entry in the ini-file. So I checked and found a channels.conf for Astra-Satelittes. However I would like to scan myself.

I am still trying to figure some things out, after I made my initial installation of far things are working nicely, except I have two issues:
1. after booting the core, I cannot access my shares anymore. I always get access denied. If I go to the adminpage for the users, then I just click on save and I can access my shares without, are my settings not correctly saved, or not correctly loaded?
2. I bought a USB infrared dongle, which is at least recognized in ubuntu, but so far I seem to have trouble getting it to work. As far as I found out it is made by a company called Kingsun and the model is a KS-959. Is there anyone who can shed some light on how I could get it going?
So far this was the only device I could find here...except, I found another one, that still uses a serial connection, but I figured USB would be better.

Installation issues / dhcp problem with DVD-Install
« on: November 22, 2008, 07:46:26 pm »
Hello guys,
this week I tried the first time to get linuxmce running. Up until now I've been running my server with Suse, but I figured LMCE would be my thing. I have my server with two nics, one connected to my DSL-Modem (realy only modem, not a router) and the other one to my switch, where my other two computers are attached. Both my workstations run vista64.
With my Suse-setup its all business as usual. However the LMCE doesn't give any of them IPs. I did the installation with the DVD, which is supposed to be more or less plug and play. After some reading around I also found out, how to get my DSL-connection running, if only until the next reboot. So the core at least has access to the internet.
I went to the KDE-Desktop to check if the DHCP-server is even running, but when I checked in the Systemservices there were actually a lot of services, including DHCP3-server and Bind, who were not running, and wouldn't be started. So I don't know if LMCE's management of those services is somehow hidden from the KDE-Desktop or not.

So far my biggest problem is to get my workstations online again. I did try to put a fixed IP on one of my computers, but I still couldn't connect. So unless someone has some inspiration for me, I guess I'll have to wait for the next release.

Feature requests & roadmap / twinview out of the box
« on: April 27, 2008, 08:56:05 pm »
I would like to setup a linuxmce box which controls my projector and a big TFT monitor as a TV-replacement. Both devices would be connected to the DVI-Ports of my graphicscard (geforce 7600gt) My system would be a hybrid, since as of now I don't want to use a separate Media Director for either the projector or the TFT. So far I was told, that linuxmce does not support twinview out of the box, but it would make things a lot easier I guess.

Users / dualview?

I am preparing to give Linuxmce a try. So far I would like to use a hybrid system. I would hook up my soundsystem to the box, which shouldn't be a problem. However I would also connect my projector via DVI on one port and a monitor via DVI to the other port of my graphicscard. The projector has a native resolution of 1024x768 and the monitor (Viewsonic VX2835wm) has 1900x1200. Primarily I want to use the monitor as a TV-replacement. In my understanding they should be working with their native resolutions. So I'm wondering if Linuxmce is able to discover and use the displays, if they are not present all the time, since I will switch them off, if not in use.
