Users / Re: Need Advice for Diskless MD running UI2
« on: December 14, 2016, 01:53:55 am »
I am getting ready to expand my 1404 system and need advice for a new diskless MD that I hope to boot from my 1404 hybrid core.

My old system used old SFF desktop machines with Intel x86 processors and they worked without fuss, at the expense of a larger machine with more power consumption and a bit of noise.  I could go this way again but other options may have developed in the intervening years.

The primary goal is for a fully functional MD, running UI2, with good performance and support for all LMCE functions: cameras, telecom, MythTV, etc. If I can achieve this in a smaller, cheaper package, without fuss, great. If not, I'd rather take the conservative route to the goal.

Rpi systems don't seem like an option in terms of UI2 and other functions. What about Intel ATOM systems? AMD? Others?

Please provide advice and experiences here.

I'm sorry for the post, there are patches of info in the wiki and forums but it is hard to discern what the current recommendations are.


First off don't be sorry for the post!  You're correct about rpi.  Maybe someday.  Intel NUC has been known to perform the way you want.  I don't run any myself.

Update. my speaker-test -c 2 -r 48000 -D hw:0,9 is positive. I get  sound out of -D hw:0,9.
I believe its just a matter of tweaking asound.conf to get the sound out. as my asound.conf has hw:0,7 in it. I tried to edit /etc/asound.conf but rebooting the system it goes back to hw:0,7 instead of hw:0,9.

please help.

either set manual audio for the device and/or work with me to add an exception to lmce.

If I remember correctly hdmi sound will not work on drivers newer than 340 with that card.  Nvidia removed compatibility.

I believe lmce 14.04 , Since our kernel runs little behind , does not install latest nvidia driver.

We use the latest kernels that ubuntu offers.  For 1404 we use the same kernel that xenial (1604) uses.  In newer versions of ubuntu (1604 for sure) the driver for your card no longer exists.

I am assuming that after AVWizard, runs, and it must have installed driver that does not properly run my Graphic card which is why I am seeing all these issues!!

Does my hypothesis make any sense? Let me know. currently my system has Nvidia 352 driver installed,( I am guessing from what I saw last night. )

Yes that makes sense.  To use that card you will have to manually install the drivers and prevent any of the automatic lmce audio/video setup stuff from running.

The best suggestion I can give would be to get a new video card as you will continue to have headaches with that card.


Hmm, so it looks like the updated package didn't make it to the repo.  We'll get it updated properly.  Sorry about the confusion and thanks for the feedback!


That seems strange.  I wouldn't go back to 1004.  1404 is the recommended install these days (and 1604 is likely working as well.)  The package dates you're seeing don't match with the latest version.  You're seeing the previous version.  I'll check the repo more thoroughly when I get home later today.

Neato.  Definitely create an Issue in gitlab to track this stuff.  For minor changes you can simply pass the info or files to me.  I'll try to have a look at these initial issues when I get home from work later today.  Thanks!

Okay the OAuth2 implementation that was chosen some time ago is described here:

I believe the appropriate files are all packaged into the lmce package 'lmce-oauth2-server'.  "apt-get install lmce-oauth2-server" on a core.

This will install the OAuth2 files in /var/www/lmce-admin/include/OAuth2/ and two files "oauth2-server.php" and "oauth2-token.php" in /var/www/lmce-admin/.  When the package installs it creates the database and the appropriate tables.

That's as far as that has made it.  Anything can change as far as configs, etc.

Awesome stuff!  I think you're right in line with conversations in the irc dev channel!  I'll get you some more info and a git account if polly/ochorocho hasn't been able to yet.  Send me a PM with your name/username/email and I'll get an account up.

I'll pass on the existing LMCE OAuth2 information when I get home later today.  You will be the first to use it so it is very likely to not be completely set up properly.  I will leave it to you to let me know what needs to be changed/altered in gitlab issues.  Thanks for this!

The other thing that we're going to need to look at is setting up a proper LMCE interface with Alexa.  I understand you have created some 'skills' or whatever they are called on the Amazon side and we'll need to get an official LMCE setup with Amazon.  We can discuss this more as we go forward.

My intent is to implement Alexa on the RPi for use with LMCE, although my time is split between a whole lot of things.

Thanks again!  Don't forget to get some git credentials and we'll setup a branch to store this stuff in.


Can you pastebin the output of the following on your 1204 core:
Code: [Select]
apt-cache policy lmce-md-metaJ.
