Users / Re: Need some dedicated testers.
« on: February 13, 2014, 02:02:52 pm »
Looks like I'll be upgrading then. 2.2 is the highest official version supported. Is there anything that I should look out for when doing a custom build? It looks like CyanogenMod is a popular choice.

I've run loads of custom ROMs. Some are good, some are bad. Get an old/and or small SD card, backup your current ROM, and then try a couple out. I have no experience of your phone, but on many it's very straight forward to install them. You need to do you research though, just to make sure there's nothing involved that could potentially brick it.

I've recently moved to a CyanogenMod ROM and I really like it. It's not the "official" version as that one was too old (I wanted Jelly Bean), but it is a "stable" version and I've not had any problems. I think it's a safe option. In the past I have used ROMs based on CM, and others that are nothing to do with it, all with vary degrees of success. Have a play.

This would be a good place to start http://alchemistar.blogspot.co.uk/2010/11/samsung-vibrant-custom-rom-list-1110.html

I also don't see myself using anything other than  the built in TV speakers for audio.

I'm no audiophile, but I ended up getting separate speakers/amp for my living room, as we probably listen to music/radio more than we watch tele, this means we can use the speakers without switching the TV on. And I have to say, even I appreciated the difference in sound quality. Very minor point, but perhaps something to consider.

Cheers,
Matt.

Those USB sound cards are just a very cheap and easy way of adding audio zones, and you control it like you would an MD. I have one for my bathroom speakers, one for my garden speakers, and one for my guitar amp. They are brilliant considering it means you can do away with an entire MD and its associated gubbins if audio is all you need.

I don't use Pandora (not sure I really know what it is), but why don't you have a look at adding some internet radio stations and playing those through your new USB sound card.

Cheers,
Matt.

The Startech Virtual 7.1 USB Audio Adapter (model No. ICUSBAUD107) works a treat.

Not speaking from experience here so I might be wrong, but I understand it is difficult to sync audio zones (if that's something you require).

This looks really nice (assuming you don't need a disk drive, although you could always conceal an external one somewhere), but would I be right in saying that he might have issues with the graphics if using 0810?

EDIT: D'oh I meant 1004! Who's using 0810?!

Installation issues / Re: PXE boot MD

Right, I forgot about the gPXE boot CD/USB/Bootfloppy :)

-Thom

I was very pleased first time I got that working! Even the ancient hearing-aid-beige equipment with no PXE capability can be transformed into an MD. Not very aesthetic for the living room, but perfect for the workshop!

If not available, I have had success with rom-o-matic/gPXE disks rom-o-matic.net

Or have a play with a VirtualBox.

The wiki is the best place for information (both the main wiki and the user pages), i.e. what equipment works, how to set it up, recommended inclusion remotes, etc. If you have any general enquires or initial questions, then just ask them on this thread. If you have a more major problem or specific issue then it might be worth starting a new thread in the Users section.

Cheers,

Installation issues / Re: 12.04 DVD install fails
« on: January 03, 2014, 09:01:08 pm »
Cool, glad it's sorted.

I've never tried RAID, more of a rsync/cronjob man myself, as you can customise the command for different folders, mirror, delete options, etc.

Cheers,
Matt.

Have you had any flavour of Linux installed on this machine before?

Have a look in your BIOS at the hard disk mode, try playing with that setting, try AHCI if you haven't already (maybe they are currently set to legacy or similar). Either way, have a play. Your mobo manufacturer may refer to this setting differently.

Cheers,
Matt.

Running ldconfig did the trick, that's all 3 jogglers working - thank you very much.

I found this really useful if anybody wants to know more about ldconfig http://www.thegeekstuff.com/2012/06/linux-shared-libraries/

Output from "ldconfig -v" http://pastebin.com/UffvEM4g

Yep they are all there, on both the working joggler and the non-working one.

Thanks for the reply.

Given what you've said I rsynced all the files over from the working joggler, and it still doesn't work. Any other suggestions?

Cheers,
Matt.

Users / Orbiter on 2nd o2 Joggler won't start
« on: December 17, 2013, 09:18:47 pm »
Got orbiter working on my second Joggler for a brief period of time after a number of attempts (wiping each time), but when I unplugged it to move it, it wouldn't work again. Have tried several times again since. Am finding this difficult to troubleshoot given that it has worked briefly.

In web admin I incremented the Listen Port on the new orbiter, so the new one is 3452 - does this need to be reflected anywhere else?

I've tried using just an Ethernet cable, no wireless.

Have tried on a spare joggler.

Manually running startOrbiter.sh on the joggler gives the following if that gives any clues
Code: [Select]
/usr/pluto/bin/Orbiter: error while loading shared libraries: libDCECommon.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Cheers,

Might be worth sticking a 10 second delay between each command, just in the name of science.
