Just to add VM MD booted and ran AVWiz successfully.
Currently downloading pkgs for MD.
Um... maybe a bit too fast to report there - MD is 10.04 based.

Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh is not currently finishing on 1204, this will need to be looked at before 1204 MDs can be created.

Could you create a wiki page with a list with what is working and what is not working (maybe with links to future tickets)?

Development for 1204 can be followed on the 1204 alpha wiki page.  Tickets should be filed for items that are not found to be working.  Feel free to grab the script and test!  If you wish to create a wiki of what is working or not please feel free to do so.  Polly is quite busy from what I have seen.  ;)

The portion after the do-release-upgrade will take quite some time as it will dl anywhere from 500MB to 1G, and then as it upgrades lmce components from 1004 to 1204, database updates can take a considerable time.  By contrast the do-release-upgrade portion dls approx 880MB on my systems.  So total upgrade is > 1.6GB of dled .debs.  Keep this in mind.

Otherwise, I have had success with the script.  Please keep in mind that upgrading to 1204 is not an option for a production system, there is a lot that does not function properly. 

If you do attempt this, please file tickets about anything you discover is not working, check to make sure no one else has reported it first.  http://svn.linuxmce.org

Thanks for all everything polly!  I'm hoping we can have a clear upgrade path for people from 1004 to 1204 once things are more stable.

I have not done specifically what you are suggesting but this could be accomplished with an rpi.  We're not quite at auto setup capabilities for the rpi yet but I hope to be there very soon.

Installation issues / Re: dhcp not working properly?
« on: March 21, 2013, 01:48:56 am »
I don't have a modem, just internet cable directly into my core and on the other nic I have my local network (basic setup I suppose). The ISP IS sending me the localhost address since this is in the leasefile:
option domain-name-servers 127.0.0.1,193.8.10.10,193.8.1.1;

any suggestions?

Tell your isp to fix the dns numbers they are sending you.  This is not an lmce problem that I can see.

No problem, just reporting my experience.  Thank you for taking this on!  I will test any updated scripts you create as well.

You're welcome.  I'll add that one to the 'must look at' list.  :)

I had the same failures as coley on a 1004 VM.

And this line will leave all of the new packages unconfigured, not really a full upgrade.
Code: [Select]
apt-get dist-upgrade -o APT::Immediate-Configure=0

It creates a new php script. Attach the created script to a message, and maybe golgoj4 can use it to recreate the script on his machine.

Merk had altered the script to output serialized data rather than a .php script.  It can be imported with the same interface.  I had been altering it at one point as well but do not recall the state it was left in.  I had been quite successfully moving DTs around through many installs.  I know enough php now that I can make it much more user friendly if there is a demand for it.

The problem I experience though is with the multi-channel aac... even after altering /etc/pluto/xine.conf and I can still only get 2 channel audio and no center so no voices...

I have the same issue.  I had everything working under 0810 with no problems.  But under 1004 I get no center channel, it's like it has been removed from the mix.  If you find a solution please report back.

Installation issues / Re: Multiple sound cards, selected at random?

S/PDIF optical vs coax?  It is my understanding that there is no difference with short cable runs.  That and when using a jumper, there is no need to run the VCC line.

S/PDIF vs coax.  This is an ongoing debate.  I find optical cables to be inexpensive and easy to run.  Coax can be a pain if you do not have a crimper and RCA ends to crimp on.  Adapters are usually extremely over priced.  I have used both, I hear no difference.

Digital vs. stereo?  Using a single 3.5mm jack is it possible to send a 5.1/7.1/10.2 signal?  Typically when I hear "stereo" I think analog left/right.  Multi-channel audio uses L/R, SL/SR, and C/Sw which again supports thinking that jack can only send analog 2 channel? 

A single jack can support only 2 channels.  See my earlier post re: multichannel.

Techie/Audiophile question:  If my assumptions about these signals is incorrect, how does S/PDIF Coax carry a raw digital signal over just 2 wires? 

Digital is completely different than analog, rather than a varying voltage/current it is a binary voltage switching consisting of 1s and 0s only.  These bits can be multiplexed together using time division multiplexing.  For example the devices would both conform to a standard method of transmitting/receiving.  A byte of data would be sent for CH1, then a byte for CH2, then CH3... to CH8.  8 bytes have been transmitted and the cycle restarts at CH1.  If additional channels (3-8 or 7-8) do not exist, then blank entries would be transmitted to be consistent.  This is a simplification but essentially how it works.

For my next MD area I am looking to really focus on audio reproduction, so am hoping to learn some and get some recommendations.  Outside of the SB fatality series I wouldn't know where to begin looking.

avrfreaks? perhaps for audio card recommendations.  I used to use high-end turtle beach cards, I don't think they exist anymore.

Prior to doing any changes today I did a lot of reading so I could get familiar with the terminology.  Mutliple channel audio I understand now as my receiver has inputs for that called conveniently "multi channel."

Multi-channel really refers to any card that can output more than a single mono signal.  This includes stereo as well but often refers to anything that has more than 2 channels.  4/5.1(really 6)/7.1(really 8)

For LMCE any device that has 2 (or more) audio channels *could* be defined with a special "multichannel sound card" device template.  I say *could* because you do not have to define any of these devices, they are usually used to house child devices that are "stereo virtual sound card"s.  This allows us to split card that has 4/6/8 and split it into multiple stereo outputs, each with their own name, very useful for adding squeezeslave devices without adding additional hardware.  Example:  I have a motherboard in an onboard 7.1 analog audio (4x1/8" TRS connectors) and an hdmi output.  I use the hdmi output for the LMCE output and have 4 stereo squeezeslaves setup on my analog onboard sound card.  Each 1/8" jack is now a stereo pair that a squeezeslave outputs on.  I get 4xaudio zones without adding any additional hardware.

 It also allows you to do funky things like combine the output of 4 different channels down to 2.  The key thing to remember here is that you never *need* to define one of these devices unless you wish
