(these steps are assuming that your core doesn't need the r8169 driver

First, go to and download the 8.020.00 driver source (dated 11/15/2010). Then transfer this file to / on your core.

Next, ssh into the core:
- Become super user
Code: [Select]
sudo su
Check whether the built-in driver, r8169.ko is installed.
Code: [Select]
lsmod | grep r8169

If it is installed (the command above will give you an indication), you will have to follow the r8168 wiki to download the kernel sources and apply a patch. Otherwise, continue on...

- Lets go to the driver source you placed in /
Code: [Select]
cd /

- Extract the sources, then cd into the source folder
Code: [Select]
tar -jxf r8168-8.020.00.tar.bz2
cd r8168-8.020.00

- Compile the sources
Code: [Select]
- Install the driver module
add a new line at the bottom of /etc/initramfs-tools-interactor/modules, then save:
Code: [Select]
vim /etc/initramfs-tools-interactor/modulesadd the following line at the bottom:
Code: [Select]
r8168then exit vim (:wq)

Code: [Select]
make install
depmod -a
modprobe r8168

- Make the MD ramdisk boot image
Code: [Select]

Now you should be able to boot the MD - you'll know its working when you see "We have announced ourselves to the router" and the diskless setup runs (you should also at this time see a new Media Director in the web admin).
When the diskless setup is finished, the MD will reboot - but again it will fail with a kernel panic (the new diskless filesystem does not yet have the r8168 module, so lets fix that)...

Code: [Select]
cp /lib/modules/2.6.22-14-generic/kernel/drivers/net/r8168.ko /usr/pluto/diskless/<MD#>/lib/modules/2.6.22-14-generic/kernel/drivers/net/r8168.ko(make sure you replace <MD#> with the device number of your new MD - you can see this in the web admin)
(also note that your kernel version in the path could be different, change it as needed for your installation)

You need to activate the module in 2 places now, using vim:
Code: [Select]
vim /usr/pluto/diskless/<MD#>/etc/modulesand
Code: [Select]
vim /usr/pluto/diskless/<MD#>/etc/initramfs-tools/modules(Again, replace <MD#> with your actual MD device number)
add the following to the end of both above files:
Code: [Select]
Now just recreate the ramdisk IN THE MD (via chroot)
Code: [Select]
cd /usr/pluto/diskless/
chroot <MD#>
cd /boot
mkinitramfs -o initrd.img-`uname -r` `uname -r`

Finally, lets clean up our mess from building the driver:
Code: [Select]
rm -r /r8168-8.020.00
rm /r8168-8.020.00.tar.bz2

Now reboot, and you should come up to the A/V wizard and you're done

Thank you so much,, I am actually printing out your post for my all good reference,, how ever lets assume that I have r8169 module installed already on my core, Again,, on the wiki following line I dont seem to understand,

This part is only required if you actually need the r8169 to be in the kernel at the same time as the new r8168 module. You may not need this if your MD has only one r8168 compatible NIC. If so, just move the r8169.ko file out of /lib/modules/2.6.22-14-generic/kernel/drivers/net/ prior to generating the new file, and that module will not be included in the new image.

Also,, hacking the r8169 instructions,, all need to be as super user?

let me know,, Agains thanks a lot.

ok, I got it..  I had to run
Code: [Select]
depmod -a
modprobe r8168
before running

Its now booting

would you please give me the steps you followed one by one,, I dont seem to understand the unrecognized NIC wiki at all. I would highly appreciate.  Thanks.

The motherboard is MSI  model : G31TM-P21.

It has got realtek r8169 module on it.  Used to net boot out of the box when I had snapshot 23333.  The system died for no reason after update && upgrade. So I changed my hard drive, and installed 23559. the installation went fine except few problems. but the net boot never worked. I tried a Lot, and perhaps you are right, I thought r8168 is not enough , so I followed the wiki that says to hack r8169. That route is scary, and I was stuck in between where there is something to create the patch. Who ever wrote that wiki,,

My questions is,, those commands need sudo or not ?

some times the command "make" is recommaned without sudo and sometimes it needs. So I am damm confused. On top of it. There is no information to revert the changes if the issue is not resolved.

please make a list of supported NIC out of the box for netboot an MD.

My Motherboard used to work out of the box and latest snapshot is giving me kernel panic. same hard ware and nothing changed except latest fresh install.

did a lot of reading, fourm, wiki but unable to netboot.

Now may have to buy another mb, please let me know what is supported out of the box.

Users / Re: Dlink DSM-510 accessing files from Core via UPnP
« on: December 31, 2010, 12:45:53 am »
here is my question without any delay,,

I have my recorded shows stored under /home/public/data/pvr/dce#38/

Those show files are .mpg formate and My device plays them just fine from Mythtv AV media server,

However, the same file If I access from mediatomb server, It does not play it ! saying unsupported format.

It has something to do with editing config.xml but I just don't seem to find an answer.

Anyone ??

Users / Dlink DSM-510 accessing files from Core via UPnP
« on: December 31, 2010, 12:40:53 am »
its been a long time since I have this device named Dlink DSM-510. It is a little network media player with hdmi and optical audio output. This device is very picky about the media formats it can play. for example, it only plays, avi, xvid, mpeg2 and 3 etc. I think I can share my story to help some one at the same time I do have few questions if some one can help.

Basically Like I said, you need to have some .avi video file in your core. when you connect this device with core from internal network it will see basically two upnp servers .

1. ) Mediatomb
2.) dcerouter mythtv AV media server

good news is, under mythtv media server, if you have recored shows there from myth. the player plays them out of the box. mythtv records the show in .mpg file and I believe this player does play mpeg format. So nothing much to do. Unfortunately we have our own movies or other video files under lmce directory and those might be .avi files.  The player sees those files under mediatomb server but they are grayed out and they might not play saying unsupported.

This is what I have done to get a little success.

we need to edit config.xml file located at /etc/mediatomb/config.xml with your favorite editor.

here is my config.xml look like..

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

The line appears in red are added by me in order to make this dlink see the .avi files and play them.

after you edit the file you need to restart the mediatomb server, I dont know how to do it so I reboot the entire system.
Note : those who keep their media on separate drive other than system drive. they need to map the drive for mediatomb database. you can add your public/data folder with + icon(see the picture attached, where the cursor is) from media tomb server user interphase.

found under...  webamin ---> Advanced ----> configuration ------> upnp server.

once you add the the folder it will appear on mediatomb's server.
Also,, Mediatomb does not auto scan any changes from the directory. hence if you add or remote any files it will not do therefore set the scan criteria by clicking the + with circle right next and set the seconds and basic scan. it will do the job. full scan might take longer. I dont know.

Thats all and you will see your public folder on your mediatomb server and it will play .avi files on DSM-510. Audio plays right out of the box. so,, nice little device to act as music spot.  I am talking over wireless connection.

Some of my movie files with .avi format streams flawless. and recorded show from mythtv from its AV media server plays flawlessly.

Thats all to say for now. I will my questions in the next post.

I know I am keeping this post alive. Something new I have found on this device, It has a bluetooth adapter and the system connects to any phone or handsfree bluetooth device. Can I use this with lmce? any one.

mightyox : bongo is just mentioning what is there on wiki. you should follow the wiki and should not have any problem. It would help if you mention your specific hard ware. what kind of video card are you using? how big your hard drive is? I would recommand to setup your core with monitor connected with VGA connection.

good luck.

Take care.

the big elephant in the room being the distribution upgrade to Asterisk 1.6, which has wildly different APIs to 1.4, and we already know that we will need to completely re-engineer our dial plans, and Asterisk DCE device to work with the many changes that the Asterisk people have made (anyone who can help us with this, please step up.)
Thanks for your patience, more news to follow.

Probably quite immature to comment on here, But just a quick question, are we going to use Asterisk 1.6 or 1.8?

just curious.

Hello guys,

I have just purchased Ooma Telo. I tried to look on forum, looks like nobody is using it so far. My brother is already using it since a year , so I decided to buy it too.

I can not explain better than this guy.

Please show me some direction to start with, so that I can use this puppy with Lmce. Is it possible? I do not think it is plug in play, is it?

any input appreciated.

Thank you all. take it easy.

It can be done if the device template is made. I believe steps are same as for adding support to any remote. Please search wiki and you might get an idea.

Okey , I would be more than happy to write the answer , Let me try.

first of all there is a wiki page on where you can find some information to get the keys working. in my case the numbers used for home key are different and so it can be different in your case too. How do I find numbers related to my keys? For that, I run command xev in the terminal.

that will open a window and after that press the desired key on your denovo mini, the window will reponse with a number. note those number on a paper. my numbers for those keys are as follows

129; // Home key on the DiNovo (under right) I use it  to act as F7 (main menu)
115; // Windows key (left middle) I used it to act as F8 (sound/lighting)
177; // record button on keyboard. RED button I use it for (fast forward)

(you may try my numbers and it may start working) Once you get those numbers follow these steps.

1. edit the "xfree86" file in /usr/share/X11/xkb/keycodes with your favorite editor. i use nano.  sudo nano /usr/share/X11/xkb/keycodes/xfree86
If you dont have nano somply run sudo apt-get install nano

2. include "xfree86(basic)"
   <BKSL> =  51;
   <LSGT> =  94;
   <FK07> =  129;
   <FK08> =  115;
   <FK06> =  177;

3. save and exit. for nano its ctrl X and say yes
4. restart and enjoy !!

this is for core/hybrid. if you are on MD . every MD has its own image. so you will have to do these changes on every MD.

[i am using logitech denovo succefully and I should create a device template , I tried but did not succeed.]

I hope this helps, if not let me know.

It is quite easy, if you are using windows you will see Linuxmce in your network share. double click , might ask for the password, I believe the username and password is same as you use for webadmin. ( This is all if you are accessing from internal network).

you will see your 750 hard drive device number, and I story in public if you want or user_1 , ur choice.

hope that helps.

take care. peace.
