Users / Re: Dianemo S: Strange Behaviour with ID3 files
« on: September 13, 2012, 05:14:03 am »
i suddenly realized that in mainly all media directories, where an id3 file exists, a lot of other files with the same name exists, but with a appendix.



This happens continuously on my NAS as well, with LinuxMCE, not Dianemo.  I never chased it down completely.  It looked to me like something with UpdateMedia and tmp files while writing id3s.  Hundreds of these files build up on my NAS.

Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Bloated MDs
« on: September 04, 2012, 11:15:16 pm »
If you were in there anyways and was curious then awesome!  If you dug around at my request let me know if I owe you for your time.  I will grab your pastebin tommorow as I have a curiosity about dropping other items from create_diskless, such a X.  That is the fail point for 90% of my media director attempts.  Thank you.

As I said, I was in there already working on RPi tarball creation.  I have tested it once, it builds a MD tarball that boots to orbiter, that's all I have tested.  This is an experiment and is NOT supported!  !! DO NOT SELECT START KDE, it will hang the MD !!  Again, this is NOT supported.  :)

Unfortunately X is a requirement for MDs.  There is no removing X.  I have never seen X 'fail' to install on any MD.  Video drivers on the other hand are a headache and can prevent X from running.  L3mce is working on improving video card detection/driver installation.  If you have video card driver problems you should talk to him about your card(s).  You will want to learn about and use the system for a while (at least a year, if not two or more) to really understand the internals before trying to remove something.

Well, since I had to touch it anyways...

Here is a /usr/pluto/bin/ that I am testing.  I have included a simple option to not install the kubuntu-desktop package.  The resulting MD works and is ~1G smaller.  There is no desktop available.  If you choose Start KDE I don't know what will happen, you're on your own.  This is not intended to be a supported feature, but if you *really* feel strongly about not having kde installed on your MDs then you can try this.

Copy it into a file on your core (mine is currently /usr/pluto/bin/ and chmod +x it.  Then run it.  It should work (I've tested it once here) but let me know if you encounter any issues.  Logging is unfortunately disabled as it was causing strangeness I havn't worked out yet.

If it doesn't work then re-run your original /usr/pluto/bin/ to recreate your MD tarball and continue on your way.

Very nice so far!

Does the Pi have the capability to interact on the CEC bus, or is it like most graphics cards....?

Yes, the Pi has CEC capability.

Wow!  Great work!  U-boot has been ported to RPi and I'm trying to figure out how to use it for netboot.

Awesome!  Let me know when you have the build figured out, I would love to *actually* try qOrbiter on my pi...  Oh and we can more or less transfer the build process to the builder then as well.

I'm on the verge of submitting the build script changes that I am using.  I am working my way through a build now and fixing up some multi-arch include issues.

The biggest issue I am having right now is that I cannot get the arm mysqld to run in a qemu chroot.  I keep getting segfaults.  I'm working around this right now by running mysqld outside the chroot and sharing the database across multiple chroot builders (raspbian wheezy armhf & ubuntu lucid i386).

The createbuilder script I am using creates a raspbian builder, it also creates ubuntu builders, with shared source tree and shared database.

I have an initial device template for the rpi and I'm researching the MD detection/creation process to see how to proceed there.

Builds take a long time under qemu, there is a lot of waiting to see if the build succeeds/fails.

Once possy accepts the build script changes I will likely request svn access so I can apply patches as I go, it is much more efficient than having to ask and wait for others to apply patches.  This is the primary reason I am not creating patches regularly as I go, it becomes difficult to manage

And this is even more good news :)
Hardware decode for VC-1 and MPEG-2 available.


Woo hoo!  That pushes aside a large stumbling block for an omxplayer device.

You ARE having way too much fun!  ;-)  Let me know if there is anything else I can help with/provide.


PS, keep having fun!

Perhaps the pin floats on a convex bubble above its' contact, kind of like joystick D-pad or old keyboard?  If that is the case then it is achieving gnd first AND normally open functionality like I plan to do on the circuit, all at the pin level.  That is an great idea for me to add into my build.

It's floating on a spring, or similar, and is not N/O, it is connected all the time.

The caps will be important, as those are for DC power conditioning and noise suppression, so Armor Gnome will need to match those values in his build.  You could always post a pic of the parts if they're surface mount, and we could figure out the values for him.

As the same power adapter is used to plug directly into the webdt OR the cradle, the cap is likely not a requirement.  It will be smoothing any ripple in the DC voltage and suppressing noise as you suggest.  I can read the part numbers if they are required but I would expect they are not entirely necessary in this case. 

On the original cradle the four outer pins are raised to 'make' the gnd connection before the +'ve, as you have suggested AG should do.

I have used USB pins on mobos straight to the USB and I have pulled them from cases where the mobo leads went to a board with caps and diodes before going to the USB housing.  Both have worked so I wasn't overly concerned with that side of it.  On the iPhone USB hardwired dock I need to power up the WebDT with the orbiter running and see if the detection of USB storage causes any problems.  I have no reason to suspect it would but its an easy test to see how the iPhone is handled if present at startup, when coming out of suspend and detected while running.

This is not specifically indicicative of you iphone but I was unable to get my WebDT cradle usb ports to charge my Android phone last night.  I only tried once and didn't muck with it to determine what the issue may be.  My android phone *does* charge if I simply connect gnd and +5v.

You're welcome.  :)  There are also two guide posts on the docking station that 'guide' the webdt onto the cradle so that the pins only contact the locations they are supposed to.  You may try to incorporate something like that to prevent mis-alignment of your webdt/cradle pins.  These posts mesh with small holes on either side of the pin locations.
