Installation issues / Re: MythTV Woes
« on: September 02, 2008, 08:25:02 pm »
Okay, a couple of final things on mythtv setup.

1) Its mythfilldatabse, not mythtvfilldatabsae
2) In the default setup this fails to run due to the access denied error mentioned in the link i provided earlier.
3) An easier workaround compared to that proposed in that link is as follows:
Code: [Select]
1) Open /etc/mythtv/mysql.txt
2) Copy the password stored there
3) Open /home/linuxmce/.mythtv/mysql.txt (this file was generatred the first time you tried to run mythfilldatabase.
4) Replace the password there with the one you copied from the previous file
5) Run mythfilldatabase and get a coffee.

Edit: I added these steps to the wiki at: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/MythTV#Setting_up_MythTV_in_LinuxMCE

I edited this wiki entry to include the possibility that the user is  not called linuxmce in the above

Hi There,

I have been struggling to get LinuxMCE installed, I have just reinstalled again and this time installed Kubuntu 32bit 7.10 with the network cable unplugged; Kubuntu moaned that it couldn't install security updates towards the end of the installation routine but... LinuxMCE installed fine (well as far as I can tell at the moment as I am still a LinuxMCE virgin)...

I was surprised that LinuxMCE doesnt' ask for a location to use as it's file store; especially recordings... I know it'll use all the space around teh home, but I have a RAID5 array in the machine with 2TB and that would be the logical place to dump all the recordings, music and the like... I guess the idea is that you mount your drive store in the location indicated, but each program seems to have its own store location.

Anyway, since I got it all to work, I am now going to reinstall as I have two problems and not sure if it is down to my installation procedure...
 - Single network card when installed; second NIC drivers installed afterwards (for Internal) but it's not behaving properly; I have altered the Mysql config IK_Devices (I think) but no luck it doesn't behave.
 - MythBackend doesn't start when the machine starts, in fact it's just unreliable so I need to do some more work on this.

Installation issues / Re: Orbiter on N800 (OS2008)

I suspect that your problem is related with Red/Blue pill mode. Try to activate Red pill mode:
Quote
Activating Red Pill mode

- Go to "Tools > Application catalogue",
- click "New",
- enter "matrix" into the "Web Address" field,
- click "Cancel".
- Choosing the red pill will activate the red pill mode, obviously, and choosing the blue one will deactivate it.

thanks, that allowed me to install teh pre-req's but I can't install / find libsdlttf-2.0_0
I turned to Convergents distribution, but this install just hung, so I will try again later.

Humm...

ok, so I trued to download the packages for an N800 on OS2008 and it says that the dependancies are an "Incompatible Softare Package". I tried it from this post

"Please, use dependencies from that page https://garage.maemo.org/frs/?group_id=162, but section OS2008. All those packages were tested on the several N800 with the latest OS2008. Also there is an Orbiter 0710 package for OS2008 - https://garage.maemo.org/frs/download.php/2956/lmceorbiter-os2008-0704-01_armel.deb. "

it came from earlier in the thread.

The main distribution is fine, although it can't install because it doesn't have dependancies installed, but I can't install those cause the packages aren't compatible

Any ideas of what I am doing wrong?
thx
Richard

Smoothwall forked a while back and there is IPCop as well, if this was on the cards both could be evaluated

Since LinuxMCE is based on the Linux kernel, and we use a 2.6 variant of the kernel, iptables is used as the firewall.

iptables is a complete stateful inspection firewall.

Also, I would stick with hardware that can be identified by the kernel in Kubuntu 7.10

-Thom

thanks... I will have a look around...
I work in IT in a FTSE100 company so security is sort of ingrained in everything we do. I am right in saying that LinuxMCE is considered secure enough to have the external network interface exposed to the internet via a plain ethernet modem (i.e. no further security)

sorry to be a pain and thanks for answering so quickly

Installation issues / security and adsl
« on: August 11, 2008, 09:02:20 am »
Hi

I was hoping for a quick couple of answers. I have spoken to people on here about using two NICs and have been encouraged to use 2 NICs by tschak909.

So we have an Internal and an External NIC

Is LinuxMCE a Stateful Packet Inspection Firewall with the ability to customise rules?
Otherwise is it a NAT Router?

ok, if it is, can the external NIC be an ADSL modem (if I can get one that is supported in Linux), even though most do not appear as network cards? Has anyone tried this? IPCop support a couple of these

Thanks

Richard

Hi There,

I was wondering if there was even a preliminary timeline for LinuxMCE804? I have just bought a box for LinuxMCE that works perfectly with Kubuntu804 but wont boot under 710. I know software development is difficult and timelines are difficult to say, but an indication would be really useful for me. Is it likely to be a month, 2 months, six months?

If it is going ot be a while i'll build a myth box while I wait, but if it is going to be just a few weeks... I can probably wait ;-)
I've been very lucky and acquired an SP13000 for a second mediadirector, a gyromouse and an N800i as an orbiter...
Thanks, and sorry to ask and disturb you.

I'll give it a try.

thanks - would still be nice to have a native app just for speed, I may have to learn C++...   :-)

Wow, that is amazing to have a MD on PS3, I could be tempted to buy one on that basis, could you (pretty please) write a step by step guide to building a PS3 install for LinuxMCE... maybe then LinuxMCE in the next version could even include a PXEboot (or PXEBoot based installer, or PS3 install ISO) for PS3, now that would be amazing!

I would like to see attack data for LinuxMCe before exposing the external LAN port to the internet. However, if LinuxMCE is up to the job I would like to use it also in this way and have both a VPN a DMX and as IPCop calls it a blue channel (Wireless channel - i.e. 4 LAN cards - Red, Green, Yellow and Blue) in the box.

For me this is immaterial as I still plan to put a firewall on the perimeter... at least for now.
