Installation issues / Re: Screensaver issues

You could try re-installing the video driver and ensure the appropriate libraries are installed.  Is this UI1 or UI2?  It looks like it's trying to start the GL screensaver (requiring libgl1-mesa-glx or the appropriate version for the hardware enablement stack on your system, you can check /etc/pluto.conf for the current version).

Have you tried the vlc-player instead of xine on 1404?  It's still beta but working.

edit: fyi: mp4 is a container, not a codec.  Some players play files that are damaged.  The fact that dragon player plays the files does not automatically infer that the files are not improper or damaged.

Hmm.  We haven't made a how-to since moving to git.  Essentially you'll clone the repo, create a new branch, add/change code in that branch, push that updates to the new branch.  Someone can have a look to ensure things look good and in proper locations.  Then it can be merged into the master branch so it is built.  There are lots of how-to for using git from the command line, if you need specific assistance then feel free to ask in -devel.

Sounds like the photo screen saver program may not be running or have an error.  Check the logs on that MD.

You're issue looks very different.  Open a new thread and provide a pastebin of the log.

Lirc-pluto?  Weird.  No idea what's supposed to be in there.

At this point I'd really suggest you upgrade.

Filename view often won't be populated until UpdateMedia has completely scanned your media.  Once it has done its' thing the files will show.

InstallNewDevice can take a while.  Ctrl-alt-f1 should get a log-in prompt.

A couple of things.  The canonical archive is likely not providing software anymore and medibuntu flat out doesn't exist anymore.

Code: [Select]
deb saucy main restricted

This is how the old-releases entries should look.  Adjust for your distro.

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.
