Users / Cover Art
« on: March 31, 2009, 02:22:08 pm »
 Does anyone know how I can get cover art for my huge library of .mp3's and .avi files. I know I can do it in webadmin but, this is tons of labour. Is there a way I can use some 3rd party stuff to get the same result. This is not working out so good and I also had some reason I had a 1000 songs in a folder named M1 + Top 1000 but now every song in that was in that directory now has that for the album. I also need to rename them all now they have a number in front of everyone. example 0702. 4 Non Blondes - What's Up.mp3. Even if someone knows what I should be doing in webadmin like what attributes I should be selecting.
 For .avi files should I make a folder for each .avi file I have or should I just have the avi file in the videos directory. Also for mp3's should I use windows or something to get metadata, there has got to be an easier way to do this.

thanks fellas I'll give it a shot.

 When I added my sata 1TB Drive, I think I picked that I would manage it when I needed to but, after reading a bit I found out that my Hard drive keeps mounting and unmounting if my data is gone I have to reboot the core to get it back. I want to select the LinuxMCE file structure for my NTFS drive and I think that will solve my problem but how do I get back to that option. Thanks in advance.

Why are you needing to patch MythTV?


  I am sorry took a while to respond. I have been trying to patch it so I can scan providers in North America. I have tried to scan without patching it will find the provider but, it won't scan for channels (just times out). There are other patches for EIT guide data. I have read that the new version of LinuxMCE 0810 will allow the user to use what version of VDR they want? So I  have just reinstalled LinuxMCE and going to try VDR. I just use MythTV so I wanted to stick with that I have an xbox frontend.

I found the answer

 No, I  am a noob still I just get by and I mean JUST. I actually need a working system.  It started out being a mythtv system for someones house but, now he seen LinuxMCE and wants a 6 zone audio system which I am buying the russound cav6.6 and set up MCE and 2 tv's  1 with cable and 1 with DishNet PVR system.  I have set up mythtv system for me with DVB cards (twinhan 1020& 1025) all went well. I ran it to 2 xbox frontends and a vlc server to my neighbours house. I just cant figure this out I need the kernel sources so I can compile mythtv because I need to patch it. I downloaded the source THSAK (something along that line) told me to get the source and compile the component. I have tried for the last 72 hours with minimal sleep. I just would like someone to point in the right direction or tell me that it doesn't work. Like if I just download mythtv svn and compile like I would in say like Knoppmyth is that wrong or do I have to compile the one in the LinuxMCE-0810 source.Please someone put out of my misery and help me. Thanks for reading.

 I guess it is a combination of a whole bunch of things. First off the harddrive that I was trying is basically toast. But, it gave me the same error on a different disk. This system is an Intel board D845EBG2 and a 3800+ dual core with DDR 400 1gig x2 GeForce 8500 GT. I could not get the 64bit version to get past the first click. Basically as soon as I clicked to install the monitor shuts off therefore useless. I couldn't get the 32 bit version (810)DVD to work either it started all looked good but, brings me too the BusyBox console and (intramfs) prompt. So I eventually got it to install Kubuntu and then use the packages to install Alpha2. I got it to install but had problems with compiling Kernel upgrade didn't go as planned so I had to abort. I put it on my p4 2.6 with a GeForce 5200 and only 768mb of ram (DDR 400) and Not one problem to report all went as planned. Now if someone could only tell me how to compile mythtv so I can apply me patches I would be golden.

 I have downloaded the linuxmce8.10 svn. I tried to patch mythtv but, it fails 7 out of 10 on the first patch. So I changed the mythtv component to something that I could patch cleanly but, I can't compile it now Does ANYONE know how to do this so that we can use mythtv in North America.  The error that I get when trying to "MAKE" is

thanks for pointing in the right direction hopefully. I have it setup now using a 40 gig that I have and I am just adding the 250 via LVM. But I am looking into because I still have a couple 250's and I have to make a MD.

Installation issues / How do I install kernel-source
« on: February 07, 2009, 07:06:50 pm »
 I need install the kernel-source but, I can't seem to get anywhere. Either I can't get it to go any help on this would be really appreciated. I did try to
Code: [Select]
sudo wget
#sudo tar jxvf linux-
#sudo ln -s linux- linux
#sudo cd linux
#sudo cp ../linux-headers-`uname -r`/.config . #(copy the previous kernel config to current dir (notice the '.'). You could use a different config if you like or start from scratch.
#sudo make oldconfig #(I usually accept the defaults for the new options. This takes all the options from the previous stock build
#sudo make-kpkg --append-to-version `date +"-%H%M-%d%m%Y"` kernel_image #builds a new kernel with todays time/date appended to the version number. You can omit this or use a different string
#sudo dpkg -i /usr/src/kernel_image.......deb #install whatever the name was of this kernel file you just created
#sudo reboot
I get to make-kpkg etc. then I get an error

 Thanks for the info. But, the drive is a Maxtor 250 gig. I ended up using a 40 gig and it worked now it I can just figure out how to install kernel-source I would be all set.

Installation issues / Error: Can't have a partition outside the disk
« on: February 06, 2009, 01:59:03 pm »
 I just got a amd 3800+ dual core yesterday and I ran the amd64 dvd and the screen goes black and the disk popped out so, I tried the i386 DVD but, as soon as I get the message about what HDD to install it on I get that error: can't have a partition outside the disk. Its a maxtor so I ran the low level format. Still same error. anyone have an idea about what I am doing wrong here. Is there a certain way to have the hard drive and dvd drive on one ide or should I use Primary and Secondary Master 

 I am using RC2.DVD. (Do I need to install Kubuntu then the DVD or is it all together)
