Installation issues / Re: NAS recognized and added but no meddia addded
« on: February 12, 2015, 10:08:58 pm »

I had a whole lot of weirdness going on.

Two hard drives with Ubuntu and (awk!) Win10.  Both corrupted. 

The ASRock B75M-DGS motherboard constantly making clicking noises - like a mechanical relay being operated

I have an old 430W power supply in that system, but, there may have been an issue with an IDE to SATA power adapter.

Once swapped the clicking stopped.  I've rebuilt both drives and so far no major issues.

Still have a couple of minor issues to resolve.

Hopefully soon I can get back to pursuing the Cubox.

HDD got corrupted and now boots into initramfs.

Ran diag tool from WD and HDD was reported as physically OK.

Before crash NAS volume 2 was not being unlocked and reported too many symbolic links.  Volume 1 was fine.

Will reload software and try again.

So I have reloaded from scratch, did not do an update, upgrade, dist-upgrade (yet) and my media was picked up.

When all is done I will do an update, upgrade and dist-upgrade - then I will add some new media and see if it is picked up.

I have finally got the pieces together to rebuild my dev box (to try to get cu-box working - haven't managed to do ANYTHING since October/14).  I loaded on 12041002114429514, which is my bullet load, running on my main system.  I did update, upgrade, dist-upgrade.  Everything fine.  Fired up my NAS, it was discovered, added username/password.  No media discovered.  I rebooted, nothing. I tried a resync from webadmin Media Files Sync  and received the following.

sudo -u root /usr/pluto/bin/UpdateMedia -d \"/home/public/data/videos\"

Getting paid for two hours of sleep seems more amicable.

If only we were unionized. :'(

My supervisor didn't buy the concept that during a 12 hour shift that a 2 hour nap would actually make me more productive.

(I know it has nothing to do with polyphasic sleep but one has to try to extend the theory.  ;) )

I've had some hardware issues to sort out before I could get back to looking at this. (Also no time.)

I was trying to do some testing on my LMCE box because it had a card reader in it (my Fedora box had a card reader but you need to build against kubuntu.)

For some reason lshw would not show the card reader.  Gee, it was working.

I tried the following commands

sudo modprobe -r r852; sudo modprobe -r sdhci_pci; sudo modprobe r852; sudo modprobe sdhci_pci

This uses modprobe to unload and reload the device drivers inorder for the kernel to automatically redetect the sd card.

It didn't change the lshw output.

I bought a new card reader (same model as in my Fedora box).

Plug it in and when I rebooted my HDD's were detected and the s.m.a.r.t. status was displayed and the system/display froze.

Turned out my power supply wasn't up to the task of handling all the peripherals I had in the system.

I put in a 500 watt supply (fortunately spare) and everything booted up.

I've tried lightdm as a desktop on the cu-box but it goes into software rendering mode for video.

So, not to mess up my main LMCE box (3 hdd's with 10.04, 12.04, 14.04) I build a box to compile cu-box.  It's slow but so am I.

I hope to get some things done over the next week, between raking leaves.

Some Kernel information.

There are currently two supported kernels for the CuBox-i and HummingBoard -

Kernel 3.14 LTS - The current kernel for CuBox-i and HummingBoard. The drive is that all projects focus on this kernel as much as possible.

Kernel 3.10 LTS - This kernel announced here (
It is based on Linaro kernel 3.10 LTS, i.MX6 Freescale patches and patches from Russell King, Jon Nettleton and various other developers.
This kernel is the main kernel to be used for end users and general availability.

Here are instructions for PXE booting the cubox.

Hi phenigma,

I haven't had much time to play with the CuBox since I posted. 

I have installed Fedora 20 on it with Xfce4 and LXDE Desktops.  They ran fine.

Cinnamon Desktop went into a software rendering mode for video and I didn't spend time (yet) trying to figure out why.

The box is HDMI 1080p with CEC 1.4 with 3D support using a GC2000 GPU .

3D GPU Type is OpenGL ES1.1, 2.0 Quad Shader.

Video Engine is a multi format video decoder and encoder.  I'll need to look around the forums to see what's runable.

fbdev driver works.  For Fedora look at the following.

This weekend I am going to try to install a Fedora ARM spin with the MATE desktop manager.

I guess if you really wanted to play with it I could drop it off to you sometime when I go up to the Big City.


I have started to look at how to possibly PXE boot the box using the raspberry pi as an example but I haven't tried anything yet.

I'm contemplating trying Win 8.1 RT software, but I haven't really looked into it yet. a start for the GPU.

You might like to look at this.

This is an ARM device.

I thought that maybe I needed to investigate i.MX6 ARM support in Ubuntu.

I have the quad core CuBox-i4Pro.

Been playing with it.  Installed Kit Kat, Fedora 20 on microSD, bootp sees tftboot/pxelinux.0 it loads but stalls.

I guess I'll have to look at the various environments for dhcp, tftp and NFS servers.

Core/Hybrid with nvidia drivers, Sarah A/V present, no Flickr photos, NAS detected username/password entered - media updated and MD's announced (x2) and created.

Best one in a long time.

Will test out what I can.

Great job guys.
