Installation issues / Re: PXE boot MD
« on: January 13, 2014, 09:35:51 am »
If not available, I have had success with rom-o-matic/gPXE disks rom-o-matic.net

Or have a play with a VirtualBox.

Cheers,
Matt.

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

Contents of /etc/ld.so.conf.d/...
Code: [Select]
GL.conf
i486-linux-gnu.conf
libasound2.conf
libc.conf
LinuxMCE.conf

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,
Matt.

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

Users / Re: Composite camera as "Generic Analogue Camera"
« on: December 02, 2013, 01:59:45 pm »
I read about this issue http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php/topic,13325.0.html

So created a file
Code: [Select]
~/.screenrc
...and added
Code: [Select]
setenv LD_PRELOAD "/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so"
...but it hasn't changed anything unfortunately. I wonder if this is specific to USB cameras as opposed to composite cameras? Or is it for any camera under motion?

This has always felt like a permissions issue, but my understanding is that LMCE does everything as root anyway, so don't really know how to go about confirming this one way or the other. It is true that when I view the camera in mplayer I have to use sudo though.

Any suggestions much appreciated.

Cheers,
Matt.

Users / Re: Any motherboard suggestions?
« on: December 02, 2013, 01:50:22 pm »
Personally, for my standalone core, I've always just used whatever motherboard/graphics I have laying around, regardless of brand/performance. Or buy a mobo that ticks all the boxes, without caring about graphics. Even if the screen does appear the size of a matchbox, why do you care. But this is just my experience. You could always stick an older nVidia graphics card in if you had serious problems.

Don't piddle about buying old kit to match your old CPU, just cough up and replace it all, doesn't need to be particularly powerful.

Cheers,
Matt.

Would be difficult to maintain/update. You could just look through the user pages. Then it's easier to see who has what exactly, and make your own judgements i.e. is it out of date. is the user active, etc.

Cheers,
Matt.

Thanks for the reply, what you are saying does make a lot of sense. I will certainly have a little read up and a play. It's not entirely clear to me what all this means in practice i.e what steps I would take to ssh in or use my orbiter remotely from my phone or work computer (VPN is simply an addition to those things is what I'm taking away from your explanation), but as I say I will have a play.

Thanks again.

Cheers,
Matt.
