Installation issues / Re: upgrade error
« on: February 16, 2010, 02:15:23 am »
Did the same, my core and MDs had a file, not a directory at /root/Desktop so a directory couldn't be created.  It should be a directory though so I:
Code: [Select]
# rm /root/Desktop
# apt-get -f install
# apt-get upgrade

on each core and MD fixed it up for me.  I'm not sure when/how/why the /root/Desktop file was created.

The ripping process would be done outside of LMCE with an app like makemkv but the resultant files would be viewable as a video file under LMCE on the core and MDs as well you could configure mediatomb to make the files viewable through UPNP on something like the PS3. 

PS3 doesn't read .mkv formats natively so a different container format would be more ideal.  Do a little research on the formats the ps3 will support and find an app that will rip your dvds to that format.

1) How do I make my DVDs appear?
2) Is there any way I can apply a filename filter to the files that are scanned to stop the thumbnails appearing? (At the moment it's still Flickr, but I want to put family pics there eventually.)
3) How do I stop the "Empty" media server appearing? I'd also like to rename the working one from Media Tomb to something more family-friendly ;)

1) UPNP will only work with 'media' files.  The DVDs are disc images which are not understood by upnp systems.  To do this you need to rip your DVDs not as images but as media files with an application like 'makemkv'.  You would keep the movie and chapter locations but lose all the dvd menus and special features.

2) The mediatomb documentation has a mechanism for you to define all the valid file extensions for known valid file types and then to tell it to not import any 'unknown' file extensions.  This sounds like you can define the valid file types and omit '.tnj' as a valid extension and it would omit those files completely.  The mediatomb docs are here: look about 2/3 of the way down the page in the <mappings> section.

3) Hmm, I've not seen this myself so I'm not sure where it's coming from.  Ah... Mythtv has an internal UPNP server ... it's likely that both are showing as both are valid upnp servers.

Another thing to keep in mind is that the ps3 has very specific container/media-format combinations which it will play.  Media that does not conform will not play properly, you can set up mediatomb to transcode these files on-the-fly into a format the ps3 can play.

I did some playing after seeing some action on trac.  The orbiter is running now on my n900 with the new fremantle package.  Had a package couldn't be downloaded error.  The repository is pointing to the wrong location and I had to wget the .debs...  repo was looking in 'arm' directory but was actually 'armel'...  something like that.  Little liquored right now but I'll look again tomorrow and update.

I have seen this at the top and bottom of my screen, only on a few pixels top and bottom, and usually it's the screensaver showing through.  I havn't been using myth lately so I couldn't say if it's happening there for me or not right now...  The mythtv window is being layered on top of the lmce windows, which is how lmce deals with visibility of it's various components.

You might try adjusing the video overscan settings in mythtv to compensate...  don't remember how specifically, somewhere in the setup section of the frontend.

I used to have to adjust the video overscan when I was running mythtv frontends on xboxes around my house.  I don't believe this adversely affect lmce in any way.

If you rip any new media with LMCE it will grab data automatically when you rip it.

That's not the case... i got the hint, reported it did not wok... and?

Have you filed a proper bug report with the bug report tracking system?

The forums are a great place to try and garnish information from other knowledgable people but the developers cannot keep track of all outstanding issues without help.  The TRAC system does just that, allows users to log bug reports into a system which maintains the list and keeps the developers apprised of any problems people are experiencing.  The developers are few and the tasks are many so even if you do report the bug by filing a trac ticket it still may not get looked at for some time.

There are probably others who are in the same position and hoping someone knows a fix.  If the bug is not filed in TRAC it will likely never be fixed.  So... you've tried the forums, nobody seems to know an immediate fix to the problem...  File a trac ticket and someone will eventually get around to looking at it, at least the problem with be documented.

Good luck!  Please do create a new ticket so the issue is known.

This is great information.  Could you add this to the wiki if you havn't already.


Users / Re: Backing up to the core using ssh and rync
« on: February 14, 2010, 05:19:44 pm »
Glad it worked for you.  I'm not up enough on bash to suggest how to embed the password.  I do know that ssh won't ask for a password if you are connecting from a machine using the same username and pwd as the machine you're connecting to.

So.. if you initiate the rsync from your ubuntu machine as root user with the same password set as root on your core then I don't think it will ask for a password.

This may not help, just spouting...  Glad your backup worked!

Looks like the user 'purps' doesn't have rights to write files to those shares.

1.  I believe the correct way to do this would be to access the share through /home/public/data/documents/[share] rather than through /mnt.

2.  You may still not have write access to the shares.  Most of LMCE operates as the root user.  You may need to set a root password and use the root account for your rsync ssh login.  To set a root password you will need to become root and then run passwd to set a password.  See, run passwd and set the password and then use root as your user for ssh.

Try purps@dcerouter or purps@

Trying to use the name and IP of the remotehost simultaneously will not work.  Both 'dcerouter' and refer to the address of the core.

If that does turn out to be the problem then this should be filed as a new trac ticket.

Anyone? Any download mirrors up yet?

The above torrent link works great with utorrent.  ~100 seeds.

This is also causing /usr/pluto/bin/ to error out long before finishing.
