Users / safe to dist-upgrade?
« on: November 13, 2009, 06:28:52 pm »
I have the alpha 2.37 installed and today I tried an
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade
so far I had the avenard repo activated. I now noticed that there are a bunch of updates including mythtv 0.22
is it safe to perform the upgrade, or am I going to face some major issues with that? The last time I did this, around the time the beta came out, it really screwed up my system.
I had to recreate the mythtv database and can I do this, or will there be a "safe" upgrade path from the alpha to the beta?

As far as I know, VDPAU works only with MythTV so far. I haven't really come across instructions on how to get VDPAU for watching videos. I remember having read that totallymaxed did something like that in the LMCE-flavoured software his company is doing...

sambahelper has an empty password, so just hit enter
thanks for the tip, I'll try that

This sounds great. Does that mean, that the problems with MD-creation will also be part of the past?
This script had quite some problems with dependencies from pluto-mythtv-player because of change in the avenard repo to mythv .22

well, about my screensaver problem- it only occurs if the kde-desktop has been used prior to watching anything. In my case I just used my windows orbiter to regenerate the onscreen orbiter, because that seemed to be the easiest way for me to get it back

I've had some troulbe too with getting nvidia drivers to cooperate. When you boot your md and finally the x-setup failed, try ctrl+alt+f1 or should give you the login
login there with linuxmce then do sudo apt-get update then sudo apt-get dist-upgrade. when you're done with that, reboot and if thex-setup fails yet again, go again to the console like before and do a sudo nvidia-xconfig.
lets see if that will help

okay...lets take this one at a time....
can I assume you have the core running so far, or do you have issues with the avwizard there too?
Then, what kind of MD are you running? I didn't see your hardware so far. Perhaps if you can elaborate on that one, maybe we can figure out, what drivers you need...or what causes your issues.

If I am not mistaken, the thread you referred to  was for 7.10. I don't think you need to do any of this on 8.10. But one thing after another...if you don't want to use your core for playback, then you don't need to invest too much work with drivers there. For starters, I would suggest you use basic skin and the UI1 with static images for your core. Should you decide later on to use it, you can still try this later. I used to have an eee-box before, which also used an Intel graphics chipset, but that handled only UI2 with overlay.
About your MD, I suggest also for start ui1 and static images. Use this to setup your MD. Once your orbiter is setup completely, you can go to KDE-desktop and check with your restricted drivers. I also had some trouble at first with my ASROCK Ion 330- I couldn't even activate the restricted drivers.
I put the avenard release repository, did apt-get update, apt-get dist-upgrade and reboot. After that, I went to the KDE-Desktop again, opened a terminal and did nvidia-xconfig, which wrote me a new xorg.conf. With the next reboot I forced the AVWizard and set it up to fullHD and UI2 with alpha-blending.
Try it out and let me know if it helped.
Now I have a question of my own: When I'm watching TV or movie, after some minutes the screensaver seems to kick in and blacks out my can I keep this from happening?

Right now everything is running A-okay again, even the windows orbiter - don't know why it didn't show the media buttons right away.
Anyways, I had some minor issue with Mythtv on the MD, but I could resolve it again with this one:
Code: [Select] case someone runs into this problem again

of course, my mistake :-)
since I cracked my system accidentally last Friday with the updated mythtv I became a bit hesitant, but I can't help but the existing installs from the alpha will make the shift to that one. If I could backup my exisiting install completely, I would like to try again. I think what caused most of the headache was the fact, that my MD first got the new version and I was scrambling to get my core to comply. Before I killed the beta-install I made a dump of the mythconverg, so that in case I could restore it again in a new install...I got pretty tired watching the progressbar for the tuning grow ever so slowly :-)
In theory I could just change the avenard repo to "release testing", drop the current mythconverg and do a aptitude update and aptitude dist-upgrade,reboot,restore my backup of the mythconverg and then proceed with the update of the MD
Right now I have a spare 200Gb hdd sitting around, which I could use to do a complete backup....any suggestion, what to use for that?

hmm, thats interesting...I will try the mobile orbiter on my n810....the onscreen orbiters are also fine...only the ones on windows are behaving oddly.
On a positive side, the didn't produce an error message unlike with the alpha on windows7

Did anyone of you try the windows orbiter? In the latest alpha as well as in the beta-dvd, there are no media buttons...the only thing visible is telecom and security.

thats what I did..anything else is probably not a good idea, since it will break a lot of things.

Well, I found this very interesting, because I thought the  new mythtv was more like an "accident", especially considering the trouble it causes with the generation of  the initial boot image for the Md in the beta.
Anyways, I'm in the middle of setting up with the alpha-script, hopefully this works better and lets me setup my MD  successfully again. By the way, does anybody know if the v4l package has been updated too? The repo I found and  described in the wiki (for the nova hd s2) seems pretty interesting and is supposed to get you s2-channels...if there is something  similar included already, shouldn't it be enough to just put the firmware in its proper place and reboot?

I'm not really an expert on this, but did you perhaps get the new mythtv 0.22 installed? This could be the source of your problem. It is very new and as far as speculation goes, probably not intended.
