;)  Thanks for testing.

Yes!  Thanks Andrew and Radu!

an nvidia graphics card will not work with vaapi acceleration. Use vdpau.

Actually vaapi has a vdpau backend.  vaapi works on the nvidia ion cards I have.  That being said, the pure vdpau implementation appears to be better, smoother, than through vaapi.

The nouveau driver should not be loading, it should only load if your pci id is not recognized.  What is the output of `lspci -nn | grep VGA`?  And can you pastebin the output of `apt-cache policy nvidia-current`.



WOW!  Thanks for this!  We have just produced our first snapshots for 1404 and we are expecting the potential for lots of issues!

1) I did not select "Install this third party software".


2) Under computer name "Geforce-8000-series-invalid-entry-length-0-DMI-table-is-broken-Stop" message received.
   Same on 12.04 install.

Weird, I've never seen that.  This should not interfere with anything during the installation.

3) Liked the return of "please remove installation media and close the tray (if any) then press ENTER:".

heh.  nothing has changed here, 1204/1404.  Not sure why it is not displaying on 1204.  The dvd boot menu has been altered so that if the dvd is left in the drive it will boot the hard drive by default.

5) System booted temporarily into kubuntu desktop - then restarted with Grub memu.  Selected *Ubuntu.

I saw that the first time I tried 1404 from net install, but not from the dvd, interesting.

6. Received network messages (including 60 seconds and booting without full network).

Did you have to swap network cards at some point?  This could be caused by the nics getting reordered.

7) Got AVWizard after selecting initial screen size got lots of error message...
systemd-udevd[XXXXX]:failed to execute 'lib/udev/socket:0/org/freedesktop/hal/udev_event' 'socket:0/org/freedesktop/hal/udev_event': No such file or directory

hald is not running right now, it loads and exits without error.  It should stay running.  Havn't had a chance to check it yet.

11) After 2 hours I'm still waiting for Sarah to say "hello".

I have not seen AV playback working on 1404 as of yet.

Power up the system.  Got the main menu.
Opened a terminal and did apt update/upgrade.
Patched around the NO_PUBKEY message for

Not necesary to patch around this, it is an informational message only, we don't require the keys for installations to work/function.

Did an apt-get autoremove to get rid of some non required packages.  Saw some MythTV issues and rebooted.
Did update/upgrade.  Update ran clean.  Upgrade reported 2 not fully installed or removed.

When I did the upgrade this was the overall error message.


chown: cannot access ‘/var/www/mythweb/data’: No such file or directory
dpkg: error processing package pluto-mythtv-plugin (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:

There's the actual error.  The chown, something with mythweb.  I wonder if it installed or not.  Can you pastebin the output of `dpkg -l | grep myth`

The system xorg.conf is defaulted to the "nouveau" driver.

:(  Hmm.  Can you pastebin the output of `apt-cache policy nvidia-current`

Via the main menu Advanced>KDE Desktop - worked.

I powered up my NAS (DNS-323) for autodetection.

It was discovered and LMCE added my file shares.

Software discovery was re-kicked and the following tried to download...

linphone library
EXIF/IPTC metadate maniplulation library
QT GUI library MT v3
Debian Font Manager
MNG library
Pluto MythTV Player
Pluto MythTV Plugin
CIFS Utils (Old SAMBA Utils)

...these all reported failed to get, recycled a couple of times until "Installing software finished". appeared.

hmm, I'll have to check some logic and package definitions.  We know why myth was failing but the qtv3 and debian font manager shouldn't be installing for 1404.  If you could file a ticket for this I'd really appreciate it.

Advanced>Computing>Web Admin good.  Edited Software modules to Disk Drive and Videolan client - checked.

Did Disk Drive not install automatically?  Why are you checking 'Videolan client'?  I don't even think we support vlc currently.

Will try Hardware acceleration - xv, no Deinterlace Quality, Standard Video Card tests later.

Sweet!  Thank you!

Battery level...  :P, firmware version.  It claims to have security functions but neither the old driver or the zwave driver knows about them to do anything with them it seems.  I'm really not that sure tbh.


Here is my video card info, probably is not listed and thats why is not detected during the boot up

root@moon159:~# lspci -nnk | grep VGA -A3
03:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation GT218 [ION] [10de:0a64] (rev a2)
        Subsystem: ZOTAC International (MCO) Ltd. Device [19da:3100]
        Kernel driver in use: nouveau
        Kernel modules: nouveau, nvidiafb

hmm, the ION *should* be detected properly.  nvidia-current will work with it.

I have a North American ZWave door lock.  As soon as OZW has any support for it we'll push on hari & sambuca to try and incorporate it!  I can pair it with my Aeon labs stick and I have even had the lock join my ZWave network, unsecured.  It doesn't seem to have much functionality in the insecure mode.  Even if it did, we don't appear to have a DT for the lock in LMCE yet...


Not a waste of my time at all.  I'm glad you were able to sort things out!


This is one area where I have really little to no knowledge.  The autofs system that is used is completely foreign to me.  If you were can jump into irc we might be able to do some testing.  The dns-323 is an amazing little device, linux based, you can run your own distro on it, but that should not be required.  I do not own one so I cannot test your specific device here.  I have a QNAP NAS, very similar in many respects, and have no issues.  This seems like a permissions issue based on what you are saying and I would look into any differences there.

With autofs the links will not show in /mnt/device unless something is trying to access files through /home/public/data/*/Windows Share.  autofs will mount each mount as it is required and dynamically create and destroy links in /mnt/device.  You should not alter /mnt/device/*.  What you are describing sounds like a permission issue but I couldn't say where.  Nothing has changed in LCME configuration regarding shares, only the distro upgrade.  Check in webadmin that the proper share name is defined AND that it has the proper IP/MAC for the device.  I've had issues in the past where 1004/1204 testing back and forth and the IPs got messed up on my NAS.  That could cause what you are seeing.  Umm.  Yeah....    :-\

Write the code that is required, submit it to svn in a feature request and then others can test it and integrate it.

I will work with anyone that wishes to help improve the MythTV experience in LMCE to integrate their work.  I'm sure that tschak would do the same.  But atm I don't think any of the devs are using MythTV, so it will fall to those that are using it to work to improve that experience.

Um.  No, I don't think so.  I had put out a Xine_Player binary that was linked against libxine2 in 0810, but libxine2 was not available in any intrepid repositories at the time.  Default was libxine1 for 0810.


Users / Re: tearing in mythtv 0.26 on 12.04
« on: April 13, 2014, 04:14:10 pm »
So, do you have MythTV 0.27 from mythbuntu working in LMCE?  Can you create a feature request ticket and detail *very specifically* what you have done to integrate 0.27?


I have not seen this issue at all so I'm really at a loss as to what to suggest.  I don't know of anything that has changed in this regard and it all *just works (tm)* here.  :(  Sorry that I cannot seem to be of much use.  Delete and recreate the device in your device tree?  You've probably done that already.  Does your NAS need a username/password to access?  That will prevent mounts.  I've not encountered the too many symlinks error, that seems fishy to me.
