Users / Wake on USB
« on: March 23, 2011, 12:03:14 am »

Hi,

I've just enabled suspend mode on one of my MDs and it works beautifully, though i needed to edit xorg.conf as advised in the wiki. Now, I'd like to be able to wake the MD with a button on the remote. The light on the USBUIRT flashes when I press buttons but the remote but the system doesn't respond. Pressing the power button on the system works as it should and brings the system back up.

I am running snapshot 23800.

Installation issues / Re: Create Raid Issues
« on: April 04, 2010, 03:10:43 pm »

Just thought I'd bump this to the top of the forum....

If someone has created RAID using the admin site under 810, please confirm.

The silence has me thinking that its just me but I'd like to be sure before I embark on trying to figure out what I did wrong/differently from my 710 install.

Installation issues / Create Raid Issues
« on: March 29, 2010, 05:00:30 pm »

All,

I've just built a new 810 core using the Internet install process. Everything has gone smoothly through to the creation of Diskless MDs.

The next goal is to create a RAID array using four 1TB drives recycled from my 710 system. I've reinitialized the drives in every way I can imagine, including:

1) deleting old partitions and creating new ones via gparted
2) writing over the boot sectors ( dd if=/dev/null of=/dev/sdX bs=512 count=1 )
3) resetting the superblock on each drive ( mdadm --zero-superblock /dev/sdx1 )

Going to the web admin page on the core, under Advanced->Configuration->RAID, I created the array and added the drive as described in the wiki here: http://wiki.linuxmce.com/index.php/Create_RAID_in_LMCE

Then, the page shows all of the drives as spare and the array status as "DEGRADED / REBUILDING". However, the build seems to go on indefinitely. Letting it run for 24 hours, the status bar has not moved and there is no evidence of disk activity or of mdadm doing anything in the process list.

Does this the create raid process still work in LMCE? Am I doing anything wrong.

This was totally painless in 710 and I can't imagine that any of the supporting scripts have changed. Please advise.

Thanks,

CDM

Installation issues / Re: Cisco 7920 WiFi Phone

Any replies? Has anyone tried to use one of these phones with LMCE? How about any WiFi phone?

Installation issues / Cisco 7920 WiFi Phone
« on: July 18, 2009, 04:05:50 am »

All,

I have a Cisco 7920 WiFi phone that I ma trying to use with LMCE. I've had limited success, though I'm not accross the line yet. Steps thius far include:

1) Creating a device template. I derived mine from the Cisco 7970 template. Specifically my 7920 template still uses the script configure_cisco7970.pl. I expect that this could be a problem but don't have a script to replace it with.

2) Creating a device instance with the correct MAC range

3) Allowing the CORE to find the phone and associate it with a room using an orbiter.

4) Modifying the file SEP0014F2C87386.cnf.xml, which corresponds to the name of my phone.

Essentially the phone turns on, connects to my network and then trys to connect to the CallManager. After that, a message of "Registration Rejected" is displayed on the phone.

If anyone has this phone working, I'd love to hear about it. My initial understanding was that it behaved essentially like a 7940 or 7960 SCCP phone. This may be so, though it definetly isn't plug and play.

Thanks!!

Installation issues / Firewire Capture from Cable Box
« on: October 16, 2008, 03:55:01 pm »

All,

I'm getting ready to try this this weekend though the LMCE wiki is silent on the topic. Its well covered in the MythTV wiki, however (http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/FireWire). Before I dig in, I thought I'd ask the if anyone has advice on doing this with LMCE. A few questions come to mind:

1) Is there advice on which card / chipset to get?
2) Resources for cable box device drivers?
3) Dasiychaining vs. using separate ports for multiple boxes?
4) Changing channels via firewire instead of with IR.

Again, all of this seems doable with Myth. Just wondering if there are any LMCE specific experiences or advice.

Installation issues / Diskless Boot to Kubuntu Desktop
« on: October 01, 2008, 01:59:43 pm »

Is there an easy way to configure a machine to diskless boot from the core to the kubuntu desktop, requiring a login and using using the core resident /home directories for each user?

The Personal Computing section describes that the only way to do this is to navigate to the desktop after first starting the media director. This way does not require a login. I recall however that this is an option when setting up a core. I'd like to do the same thing for diskless clients.

Thanks

Installation issues / MythTV Fresh Start
« on: September 24, 2008, 05:34:28 pm »

Hi,

Short or a full system rebuild, is there a way to nuke my mythconverge database and just start over within MythTV?

I expect that I have hosed my database in the process of playing around with various tuners. Now, though myth can scan channels and correctly grab listings, hangs when I try to watch live tv. I expect that it might be looking for a tuner that is no longer there.

Users / Slingbox in LMCE?
« on: September 15, 2008, 09:45:36 pm »

Does the slingbox work as video capture device for LMCE? The girl mentions it in the setup wizard but there is no information about it in the wiki.

I am interested because I'm looking for a component-video capture solution that will allow me to grab the premium channels on my cable box. Slingbox seems to support this and additionally would allow streaming of content to mobile devices.

Alternatively the Hauppague HD-PVR product also seems to do this. Any experience with this?

Developers / Orbiter on Familiar / OPIE
« on: September 05, 2008, 03:48:06 pm »

I am contemplating an attempt to port the oribiter app to the Familiar/OPIE environment so that I can use my ipaq 3950 and 3850 devices with LMCE. Before digging in, I thought I might ask a few questions to the forum:

1) Has anyone done this or tried it?

2) What parts of the LMCE source code tree and docs should I look at initally?

3) Is there a linux desktop orbiter that I might look at as a starting point?

Thanks,

Cafedumonde
