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: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/R8168
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 192.168.80.1 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

I'm seriously considering getting an EEE Box and wanted to connect it to my TV. However I'm a bit confused, because totallymaxed said it handled 1080p very well, while almost anywhere on the net I heard FullHD is too much to handle for the box so far. Though I don't have BlueRays right now, doesn't mean I won't have it in a while and I'd like to be able to watch FullHD on my TV. So I'd really be curious how much performance I could expect from the box with LMCE.

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.

Installation issues / Re: no access to shares after core reboot
« on: December 01, 2008, 06:41:16 pm »
I rebooted it maybe about 5 times...no changes whatsoever...so after a lot of thinking I just did a fresh install, but preserved my home directory...and now it really works like a charm. I had to reboot twice since installing, but now I don't need to worry about access to my shares anymore.

By the way..I just got a N810 and was wondering if I could set it up to use Bluetooth instead of WLAN. The only WLAN I have is on my router, which resides on the outside of LMCE, so that would be a no go there.

Installation issues / Re: no access to shares after core reboot
« on: November 29, 2008, 10:56:25 pm »
okay, obviously I have another problem, a bit more serious.

I tried to get some more cover arts for a while. When I called it a day for that, I just wanted to watch some movie, when I was prompted to regenerate my orbiter.
Since then, even after some rebooting, I have this problem:
Connecting to router at 127.0.0.1
initialize_LMdevice:Connect failed

This repeats for a while
Then I get :
initialize_LMdevice:Not retrying
Failed to connect to DCROUTER

I have no idea what happened here...

I am still trying to figure some things out, after I made my initial installation of Linuxmce...so 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 trouble...so, 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 / Re: dhcp problem with DVD-Install
« on: November 24, 2008, 10:39:15 pm »
by the box I meant the fritz!box by AVM. its a router with voip capabilities. You could set it up to either to use landland and Voip, for example for least-cost routing. In that case I could make calls to cellphones using VOIP and normal calls on the landline, since I have a flatrate there. If I could get LMCE to just patch all the calls via ethernet to the fritz!box, then it would be fine. Otherwise I would have to put an isdn card into the core and use VOIP only internally.
Well, I guess I can tinker around with that on the weekend.

Thanks again for your help.

okay, I understand that. So for me the question is, would I still need to put an ISDN-card in the core, or could I convince asterisk(or LMCE) to talk to the voip service in the box through ethernet? So far I have no real reason to go all the way with VOIP, only until the fritz!box, from there on it would be normal landline.

VOIP would have been the next question for me. As far as I know the FRITZ!BOX can already handle VOIP, so I was wondering if the asterisk in LMCE might be able to utilize that, since I can plug my phone to the Fritz!Box and use both VOIP and ordinary telephony at the same time. I would love to just dial via LMCE and then pick up the phone once the connection is established, or route my calls to the computer...something like that.

well, that helped. I swapped the interfaces at the webadmin page and then my clients got IPs. here is the ifconfig:

However, now I have a new problem: while the core can access the internet and I can ping back and forth between my clients and the core....the clients can't get on the net
I checked with route and got this:

with route -n I got this:

To setup my pppoe I used the wiki:http://wiki.linuxmce.com/index.php/How_to_setup_ADSL_access%3F
I consider this a trial run on a spare hd. I just ordered a FRITZ!Box, which will handle the DSL in the future, so I wouldn't have to mess around with this on the core again.
So, would it be safe to assume, that if I setup my system with a router in front, that I won't run into any connectivity issues again? Or do I still have to edit the firewall in order to let my clients access the net?
So far thanks for the help...if you could help me a little further, I'd be grateful

okay, I did as you asked, so here is the result of ifconfig:

I did try again with a fixed IP(192.168.80.150) but I could not ping the core nor could the core ping the IP.
The eth0 is an onboard nic on the K8T-Neo2 and uses a Realtek RTL-8169 chip.

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.
