Installation issues / Re: Xine, x264, VC1 (mkv), and VDPAU

That's an older version than lmce is using now.

Code: [Select]
$ sudo apt-cache policy libxine1
libxine1:
  Installed: 1.1.16.4-0ubuntu6-lmce-1
  Candidate: 1.1.16.4-0ubuntu6-lmce-1
  Version table:
 *** 1.1.16.4-0ubuntu6-lmce-1 0
        500 file: ./ Packages
        500 http://deb.linuxmce.org intrepid/beta2 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     1.1.15-0ubuntu3.3 0

A dist-upgrade should bring it up to date.
Code: [Select]

# apt-get update
# apt-get dist-upgrade

Install with a recent snapshot.  The installation media you used is about a year old and many improvements have been made, some that do not always apply through an 'apt-get upgrade' process.  Mythtv changes have been significant and using a recent snapshot will ensure that everything is installed through current methods.

Hitting Ctrl-C will cancel the Diskless_Create script, MDs will not boot until the mythtv dependency problem is resolved and the script successfully completes.

Have you confirmed that you have internet access before running DisklessCreate?  You must have a working internet connection or DisklessCreate will fail.

Find out what apt really thinks about mythtv-backend, on your core run:
Code: [Select]
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-cache policy mythtv-backend

The output should look like this:
Code: [Select]
mythtv-backend:
  Installed: 0.23-0.1
  Candidate: 0.23-0.1
  Package pin: 0.23-0.1
  Version table:
 *** 0.23-0.1 1001
        500 file: ./ Packages
        500 http://deb.linuxmce.org intrepid/beta2 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     0.21.0+fixes18722-0ubuntu1 1001
        500 http://ca.archive.ubuntu.com intrepid/multiverse Packages
        500 http://archive.ubuntu.com intrepid/multiverse Packages

If that looks good then you need to start looking for other errors that are happening in the script before this one with mythtv, you may have to scroll back in the buffer to find additional errors.  If your output doesn't look like the above then you should post your /etc/apt/sources.list

sh*t... BUT... I changed my cables... The original distribution installation switched the interfaces also!!!

IS there another way to change it the right way?!

LMCE provides a way to change eth0 for eth1.  Click "swap interfaces" under the advanced network settings in web admin, then physically swap the cables.

Thanks for the comments.

DMCA style copyright legislation is not yet in place in Canada and fair-use allows (currently) for backing up of media for a variety of reasons.  DMCA style copyright legislation has recently been re-introduced here and there are significant concerns about the limitations that it would impose.  I understand that circumventing DRM/copy protection is illegal in many places, the DMCA heavily emphasises this.  DMCA recently allows circumventing for specific (very limited, usually research) purposes but continues to criminalise distributing and acquiring the tools to circumvent.  Significant legal problems would arise, in countries implementing DMCA style legislation, if LMCE were to implement circumvention functionality, or even permit a discussion about the methods to circumvent.

This question (not only this one) comes up frequently enough that there must be a vast gaping hole in the information new users see when they arrive at the forums.  We don't have a 'START HERE' post with an FAQ like most other forums I visit.  I wonder if a general sticky message at the top of the user forum with a 'READ THIS FIRST' kinda subject and a body including links to the main LMCE web page, wiki pages (especially FAQ), why no blu-ray, blah, blah would be a useful tool in heading off some of the repetitive new user questions...  Yes I know most of the info is on the wiki, but until you read through 50 random posts or more there is no link to the wiki from the forum and no FAQ guide here either.  If nothing else it may help reduce Thom's irritation/stress levels with recurring questions on the forums.

Thom:  I understand your point re: medibuntu.  Thanks.

This seems like a perfectly valid question.  Lmce allows the use of medibuntu packages to decrypt DVDs, fair use clauses in many countries allow for this use.  I see no difference.

Installation issues / Re: Asrock A330ION problem
« on: September 21, 2010, 02:03:57 am »
I've installed LinuxMCE on my Asrock A330ION.
Everything works fine but xine is not working.
In the wizard i don't have any playing video.
And when the installation finishes everything works but i cannot play any video.

What installation media did you use for your installation?  Net install, Beta2 DVD, snapshot DVD?  If it was a snapshot which one did you use (The # in the file name of the .iso)?

There was a fix put in that disabled the screen saver automatically, preventing the need for manual intervention.

ATI cards really are not supported, you would do well to grab an inexpensive NVidia 8xxx or 9xxx series card and disable the onboard ATI.  You could also look here: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Display_Drivers but I'm not sure you'll have luck with the ATI card.

Use a recent snapshot http://linuxmce.iptp.org/snapshots/ the beta2 DVD is quite old and outdated at the moment.

I've heard of people using cat5 USB extenders to use USB-UIRT in locations without a PC.  I think Convergent Home Technologies has used these, iirc.  No experience with them myself though.

Hmmm, this actually got fixed some time ago, but I noticed it had returned yesterday while watching a movie.  The kubuntu screensaver was kicking on again.  I havn't had a chance to see if the previous changes have been reverted somewhere or if it's something else.

Users / Re: LinuxMCE snapshoting with btrfs, zfs, lvm... ?
« on: September 20, 2010, 04:06:15 am »
I use an ubuntu live cd or knoppix live cd and use 'partimage' to create backups of my core to my NAS or a USB stick, from time to time.

Great work guys!  Any chance you guys would help to implement this into LMCE?

Some things that could help diagnose your problem:

What is your installation source?  Net install, DVD Beta2 install, Snapshot install?
What video card are you using?  Nvidia, ATI, Intel, VIA?
What model of video card?
How are you connecting to your display?  Composite, SVIDEO, VGA, DVI, HDMI?
How long have you waited after the AVWizard?  (It could take more than 20 mins to build the orbiter before showing the Setup wizard.)
