Installation issues / Re: MD setup Nvidia driver installation failing.
« on: December 10, 2012, 04:04:34 pm »
Hello guys,

I am tagging this thread as solved because my original issue has been resolved. I rebuilt the MD image and this time driver got installed without any problem.

For the sound issue , we will discuss in different thread. As of now, as a video card, GT 430 worked out of the box.

I upgraded his kernel to Natty.

sudo -i

Then dump the rest of this.
if uname -r | grep "pae"; then CurKernel="-generic-pae"; fi
apt-get -yf install "$NewKernel"
apt-get -yf install "$NewHeaders"
apt-get update
apt-get -yf dist-upgrade
If your MD will not boot again, sudo chmod +r /tftpboot/XX/*    where XX is your moon number.

Sorry for stupid question, are these steps to be done on MD or on Core itself?

Installation issues / MD setup Nvidia driver installation failing. [SOLVED]

Hello guys,

I set up my system(hybrid core) with great help from L3mce. Upon setting up the MD I could not hit the AV wizard. the MD was on reboot loop with message on the boot load about failing nvidia driver installation.

L3mce helped me to comment out a line in moon42's etc/init.d/nvidia...(dont remember) and upon reboot I hit the AV wizard but had a very hard time to chose my resolutions. the AVwizard showed two option for the audio card but none worked. Basically I dont have sound coming out of the MD.
I have geoforce GT430 graphic card but I had to chose lower resolution as the driver is not installed.
I have Asus Xonar D2 PCI sound card on the system.
I believe the motherboard has an on board sound chip as well.
OH , not to mention, the GT430 should be able to decode sound too...!

dpkg --configure -a  does not give any output on the MD.

What should be my next step? Do I have to manually install the driver?

Please let me know. Thanks.

Hi there,

I am not an expert but I can answer based on my experience. First of all, If you have a lot of videos (huge files) I would suggest that you format the drive with xfs filesystem.

ans 1: best and fast way to move media over to new drive is via ssh from terminal. If you are not comfortable, then I would fire up the KDE desktop and copy paste the traditional way. Its feasible to attach the hard drive physically rather than moving the content over network. Permission issue is beyond my knowledge but if you run " sudo nautilus" can get the job done.

Ans 2 : Simple answer is "Yes". (as far as I know LMce) that is the beauty of the system.

I don't understand the last question.

Personally, I had the Haupaugue (sp?) HVR-1600 (2 of them, actually) and I pulled them both, because they were such a pain in the backside to configure.
I rely on the four tuners in my 2 HDhomeruns.

I agree the HVR-1600 are pain, but once configured properly they work flawless. awesome cards.

I have something to report on Denovo Mini functinality.

All the buttons work as expected however , When I go to computing, lets say going on youtube.

I search for some video, and while typing If i make a mistake, I try to delete mistake with "Backspace" and it goes Back on orbiter !!

The BackSpace works as Back on all other orbiter screen that is what we want, but while computing, I think it should do its job as Backspace.

Don't know, I feel like worth mentioning a point !

Users / Need help to force redetect the media hard drive. (solved)
« on: August 18, 2012, 06:18:48 am »
I deleted my media hard drive from the device tree on webadmin. Hoping that on next reboot the system will redetect the hard drive and I can have it scan again for media.

Unfortunately folloing the rule # 1 still I dont not see message on any orbiter about the hard drive.

The drive is also not locked under unknown devices .

Never mind,, it got solved by following,12505.0.html

I have Galaxy GT 430 working on 8.10 with some tweaks. However do not get me wrong as Its not recommended for newbiee..
I believe , 8.10 does not support those card yet and its not going to be. unless you try 10.04 on your own.

Users / need help to set up logitech pro 9000 [solved]
« on: October 29, 2011, 11:23:16 pm »
Hello everyone,

I know some of you out there using logitech pro 9000 successfully. I have followed the steps from wiki but nothing comes up on my camera view under webadmin nor on orbiter.

Any inputs will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Edit :
Sad to see, no body replied, however I got my webcam up and working but doing some here and there with the device template of generic analogue camera.
Also, wiki's page is really helpful as you will need those two packager namely, uvccapture and luvcview. the wiki does not specify about having them on core or MD so I installed on both.

Thank you.
