GUYS!
STOP DOING THIS!

Please! just use the system as it is meant to be used, put everything on one network, let the core control and provision. It really does work!

Damn it, I'm getting _VERY_ tired of yelling at you all.

-Thom

If you use beta software for a production environment you are an idiot and deserve everything you get.

And there's my 2 eurocent.


So which is it then?  What is the developers consensus?  If I do as Thom says and put the core in control of everything then I would be an idiot as Zaerc says...  Excellent.  You have both been working on this system for a long time and people look to you both for guidance.  How are users supposed to know what to do now?

I use a NAS with dual NIC in it, one connected to the lmce network and one to my other network.  I use an ubuntu PC but there are standalone NAS devices with dual NICs as well. Check my sig below for the link to my user page on the wiki I have a diagram of how my network is setup, it's a little complicated compared to most but works great.

Try removing the gyro mouse and use a normal usb mouse and see if you have the same problems.

Are you using UI2 overlay or alpha blending?  The alpha blending could cause some 'jerky' action on the cube rotation but I can't imagine it would affect using the letters on the side.  Is this a mouse or a gyration mouse you're using?  I'm grasping, but trying to think of things I have seen affect the UI.  My use is with a wireless logitech usb keyboard/mouse.  Both work great.

That's really odd, what's your setup?

Zotac ION 330 miniITX (VGA 720P) with vdpau enabled.  I have >500 <1000 videos and around 44000 audio tracks, most have attributes and cover art applied. 

The only problem I experience is slow queries in mysql, some of which I've sped up others not.  I've no idea what is causing your problem.

I have a few questions about the repository's. I've tried several times to install LinuxMCE on top of Hardy(8.04) and well I get nothing but pure frustration

LMCE is not compatible with Hardy (8.04).  There are two flavours of LMCE you may install LMCE 0710 (for Kubuntu 7.10) or LMCE 0810 (for Kubuntu Intrepid, 8.10). 

You should perform an 0810 install if you are using newer hardware, follow these instructions: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Installing_0810

Users / Re: Multiple TV Tuners Question
« on: March 16, 2010, 02:50:40 pm »
MythTV will automatically select the next available un-used tuner based on priorities set for the tuners in MythTV.  If you have only one analog tuner and it is in use then you will not be able to use that tuner on another MD until it is no longer in use.  All channels will show in one big list.  With multiple tuners if the backend is recording and you choose liveTV the second tuner will be automatically selected.

My ION MD has the latest version installed from the avendard repository 195.36.08 for both nvidia-195-libvdpau and nvidia-glx-195.  Mplayer is working for me with, and without, vdpau acceleration.

dcerouter_1006499:~# apt-cache policy nvidia-195-libvdpau
nvidia-195-libvdpau:
  Installed: 195.36.08-0ubuntu1
  Candidate: 195.36.08-0ubuntu1
  Version table:
 *** 195.36.08-0ubuntu1 0
        500 http://www.avenard.org intrepid/release Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     195.36.03-0ubuntu2 0
        500 http://deb.linuxmce.org intrepid/beta2 Packages


For testing HD material I use trailers from here: http://www.h264info.com/?page_id=20 (rename .mp4 to .m2ts)

Almost every media format is handled by Xine, which is the default player for LMCE.  Renaming files to .m2ts causes them to be played by mplayer, which is not well integrated with LMCE...  Is there a reason you have renamed this file to .m2ts?

The GeForce 6800 is not VDPAU compatible, try setting your MD for opengl.  See: http://ru.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/190.32/README/appendix-a.html

Turn the de-interlacing off (or lowest) until you get things working.

Users / Re: apt-get tries to downgrade pacakges on MD
« on: March 10, 2010, 09:40:11 pm »
The script /usr/pluto/Diskless...TBZ.sh will re-create the MD images completely from scratch, including the /usr/pluto/deb-cache folder.

With the 'deb...' line removed from /etc/apt/sources.list the MD will not try to use files from that directory, you can use and update your MD as if nothing was different.  Apt's cache of downloaded .debs is still active and not affected by this change.

What remains is to determine why/when/how the filenames are being corrupted and by what.

I believe the /usr/pluto/deb-cache is a repository of .debs, used to build the diskless images, at the time you ran /usr/pluto/bin/Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh on your core. 

What is puzzling me is why apt isn't using the newer .debs from the online repos.

I see two possibilities:

1. Update your core and re-run /usr/pluto/bin/Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh then rebuild your MDs.

or

2. Remove the entry "deb file:/usr/pluto/deb-cache/ ./" from /etc/apt/sources.list on the affected MDs and then update/upgrade them.

I'm not sure why this is happening.

Hi posde, yes I realize that, the link is always by PK and FK.  So let me explain what I mean.  The PK for a related table row (eg. Manufacturer) could be different on the system it's being imported to than it was on the exporting system because of sqlCVS updates.  To get around this the psc_id could be used to find the proper PK on the import machine (if it's different).

Example (Follow me here):
1.User1 installs a fresh 0810 system and creates a DeviceTemplate and then exports it and gives it to User2.  This device template refers to a manufacturer that was recently added to sqlCVS.

2.User2's system is older than User1's and User2 has created a new manufacturer before doing an sqlCVS update.  The sqlCVS update adds the manufacturer that User1's exported template is referring to.  Both users now have the same Manufacturer in their databases but with different PK's for that Manufacturer but the same psc_id.  This is how sqlCVS works isn't it?

3.Importing the DT into a new system by original PKs will link the imported Device to the incorrect Manufacturer on User2's system. 

The script will need to check the psc_id of the manufacturer and use it to select the the import machine's PK for that Manufacturer to properly link rows on the import machine...
