Installation issues / Re: NVIDA H264 Codec
« on: February 22, 2010, 07:12:47 pm »
I'm not at home right now but I have AAC multi-channel audio over SPDIF working in mplayer from the command line, havn't figured out where/how to put the config to work from LMCE yet.  I'll post what I have done when I get home later today, maybe you can take it the next step.

Users / Re: Kernel Panic with e100 NIC

Has the core created a directory for the media director under /usr/pluto/diskless/## yet?

If the core has created the diskless directory for the media director then the tftp server will serve up /tftpboot/##/vmlinuz  & /tftpboot/##/initrd.img which are symlinked to /usr/pluto/diskless/##/boot/vmlinuz and /usr/pluto/diskless/##/boot/initrd.img rather than the kernel in the /tftpboot/default directory.  So if the /usr/pluto/diskless/## folder exists copy your new kernels from /tftpboot/default to /usr/pluto/diskless/##/boot/ and try the boot again.

I'm grasping....

Users / Re: Dimming LED and CFL light bulbs?
« on: February 20, 2010, 11:35:45 pm »
Most commercially available led replacment bulbs and standard CFL bulbs are not dimmable.  Dimmable CFL bulbs are available, although at a premium of about 5x the cost of a standard CFL bulb.  There are likely dimmable LED replacements available as well but I havn't seem them on the shelf yet.  With the cost of dimmable CFL bulbs I use regular incandescent bulbs where I want dimming.

Excellent!  There are many people who could benefit from this.  Could you add the information to the ticket.

Installation issues / Re: upgrade error
« on: February 20, 2010, 02:40:17 pm »
Your welcome.  This issue will only affect a few who upgraded at a very specific time.  The issue has been fixed for new installs and anyone who upgrades from before the issue arose.

So I'd been unhappy with my queries performances following a re-install in January and it turns out the indexes built in this thread are not being applied to new installations.  I have added at least one more index now which has added another significant speed-up to some of my queries and I've made some adjustments to query_cache which have also significantly sped-up some of my queries and reduced the load on my core.  I'm hopefully going to wrap this all up on a dev system and submit a patch in about 1.5 weeks (when I have a week off). 

There has been some discussion in IRC about optimizations regarding the video query after doing tv episode tagging. 

Has anyone else figured out any other optimizations during their playing?  I'd love to incorporate anything/everything I can.

As soon as im done with a couple more tests ill post the info and an optimized file for mysql for your testers to test ill keep you posted but so far very good results on speed issues

I've been looking at/working on some mysql optimizations along with indexes, there had been discussion and some indexes added to the database back in november but current installs do not seem to be implementing the indexes.  I've also looked at query_cache increases and have achieved some significant speed-up on my queries.  I'm hoping to get the indexes reinstated and a few other tweaks put in at the same time.  I have had a look at what you were doing last nite on IRC and it looks good, some of it is very similar to the steps I have taken.  I'll have a look at the optimizations you release here and see how the align with what I've found as well.  I'm off for a week in a week so I'm hoping to dedicate that time to implementing my updates on a dev system to submit a patch for what I've got for mysql at that time, perhaps these updates could go together.

Users / Re: Backing up to the core using ssh and rync

What happened to /home/public/data/other?  I thought this used to be directory that was ignored by UpdateMedia just for this sort of thing...  It doesn't have the links to the storage devices anymore.

/home/public/data/other is where media from outside the lmce directory structure shows up, shares configured as 'public'.  I didn't think 'other' would be used if the share's directory format was set to LMCE.  Regardless I noticed no links in 'other' to media on shares configured for LMCE directory structure.  Should there be?

Users / Re: 8.10 Beta Black Screen on MD Video Playback
« on: February 18, 2010, 09:09:38 pm »
If you have never run dist-upgrade on the core then you likely wouldn't need to on the MDs either, again apt-get will tell you if there are additional files to install that a normal upgrade will not.

Adding the keys for avenard and medibuntu will get rid of warnings about non-existant keys when you run apt-get update.  It is recommended that you do add the keys, if for no other reason than to get rid of the warnings.  Under a normal kubuntu install you would not be able to install packages from these repositories if you did not have the keys installed.  LMCE has repository authentication turned off which allow you to install the packages even without the keys.

That will likely cause a circular file reference and bring no end of headaches.  The best thing to do is stay away from /mnt entirely.

How about creating a folder at: /home/public/data/documents/device_id [[55]]/backup and moving your backup location there?  That's on the same HD you're already using.

Keep in mind that the wiki articles are written by different people at different times with different points of view.  I would upgrade the core first. 

MDs are created using a snapshot of files on the core at the time you run the /usr/pluto/bin/Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh script.  So newly created MDs will have to be 'upgrade'd and perhaps 'dist-upgrade'd for them to be completely up to date with your core.

The notice warning not to perform an 'apt-get dist-upgrade' is somewhat misleading but it can cause problems if you don't realize what you're doing.  Under normal circumstances running 'apt-get upgrade' is sufficient, existing packages will be upgraded but no new packages will be installed (like new kernels).  But there are times when you must perform the 'apt-get dist-upgrade' to install new packages your system needs.  See my description here: http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=9524.msg65208#msg65208

Sorry, but why WOULDN'T it stay mounted? All my media is on this drive, and it's also the location for all myth recordings!

LMCE will automatically mount and unmount shares as it needs them.  The automounter automatically unmounts filesystems that have been inactive for something like 30 seconds or more, so they disappear from /mnt/device/device_id#.  When something tries to access the files located at /home/public/data/.../Share [##]/... the automounter detects this and automatically re-mounts the filesystem for use.  I believe this action is required for media that can be unplugged (usb, network).  The automounter won't detect you accessing the share through /mnt/device/device_id# and I suppose it could try to unmount the share while you are using it.

I use ps3mediaserver regularly from my windoze laptop, for upnp media sharing to the ps3 there is no better application...  But it will not work well with other UPNP frontends like the xbox, or others, because it is optimized for ps3 acceptible file formats.
