Users / Re: Installing padorbiter on webdt

The Orbiter binary is located at /usr/pluto/bin/Orbiter

/root/.xinitrc is where TabletCFG is launched from.

Have you tried using the wpa-psk network configuration that comes with Padorbiter?

Yes, you will need an active internet connection on the core when you run

Welcome to LMCE!

You will need to open a terminal on the Core and run:

Code: [Select]
sudo /usr/pluto/bin/

before your diskless MD will be able to boot.

It would be helpful if someone could check if this fixes any of the tickets listed here:

This one is fixed.  No problems pausing and resuming either sample video as many times as I could, no crashes.  I have a few dozen movies (mkv and avi) that do not play properly and non of my recorded tv (mpeg2) plays at all under 0810.  I havn't submitted bug reports for them but these updates fixed them up.

I have nothing with subtitles in .mkv, or any other, format.  If someone has a sample to post, and tells me how they activate their subtitles so I can replicate the issue, I'd be happy to test it!

First question I had when I saw this thread was going to be regarding VDPAU; are the instructions in the original post (refering to the nVidia driver) VDPAU-friendly? Should the MD be up and running with VDPAU first before doing this, or should VDPAU be selected after?

I am using VDPAU and that is what the majority of my testing is based around, I also have an Asus EeeBox B202 with intel graphics that does not see benefits of VDPAU but I have installed this on.  It doesn't matter if you have vdpau selected ahead of time or after installing the items I indicate.  The 'vdpau' option in webadmin is only used when Xine_Player is launched on Router Load or Reload.  It has no effect whatsoever on anything else in an MD or Core.  There is never a need to 'rebuild' an MD or re-install a Core.  Select 'vdpau' before or after performing the suggested activities and it'll work either way.  You need to 'Quick Reload Router' for changes with vdpau selection and Xine_Player to take effect.

You could always try to launch Orbiter from the command line.  Are you doing this locally on the webdt or through ssh?  Can you ping the router from the webdt?  Can you ping an internet address from the webdt?  This is new territory for me as I still havn't even tested wpa on my webdt...  So I can really only offer suggestions.  You should probably look into disabling the padorbiter network config so that it doesn't ever get chance to overwrite you're network config.

Some questions:

Have you disabled the included network configuration application in PadOrbiter?
Have you 'restarted networking at boot' as is recommended in the 2nd post of the ubuntu thread you referenced?
Do you have a core up and running with an Access Point on lmce's internal network?
Have you set the PadOrbiter for DHCP (on the core's internal network)?
If not, have you set PadOrbiter for a static IP on the core's internal network?

If you reached the network configuration application then PadOrbiter has installed.

Orbiter will not actually load if it cannot contact the core.  PadOrbiter will appear to freeze at the 'Lazy Tux' x-windows desktop background (not the splash screen, which looks identical but includes the progress bar).

You're very welcome.

This is baked in to 1004 already so there should be no issues with it once it reaches a stable state...  until then these changes have fixed every one of my media playback issues as well.  Enjoy!

You can change the default sort method that Orbiter uses for audio and video now.

Goto WebAdmin -> Wizard -> Devices -> Orbiters

At the top of the screen is a pair of pull down menus, one for video and one for audio, with buttons to 'Set Default Sort'.  You can set the default value to 'Title' for video and you should be back to the views you are accustomed to in Orbiter.

Hmm, I don't know... but you could always try.  I don't have any .mkv files (or anything other than .dvd) with subtitles to try.  If you try it let me know what you find.

You're welcome to use the splash screen for any purpose you see fit!

At one time I had all the patches to fix the splash screen behaviour for Core and MDs and I had incorporated it into to build as part of the system...  it's gone now, but recreated easily enough.  Learned lots doing it.  I'll try to keep this .deb online if it goes down and I receive requests for it.

Keep having fun!

not sure if I'm the only one but the link did not exactly work... I took me to the upload site; but after waiting the 60 seconds to download; I got "Page cannot be displayed".  I really want to apply this to see if it fixes some playback issues I have, but I can't download it...

I've added a couple of different download links to the first post, if one isn't working try another.  :)  Let me know how it goes.

Only diskless MDs are supported and working.  You can always leave the existing installation in place so you can use the machine as you wish and then netboot as an MD.

All logs are in /var/log/pluto/

+1 thanks

I haven't tried it, but I know many playback issues most likely will be fixed with a newer xine version.

Let me know if you do.  :)  posde says this is baked in for 1004 but not on 0810.

I'm not sure if we should try to add this to 810, but if we are, we need more of a step-by-step procedure to build it (if there are any special steps, compared to 1.1), so we can include it in our build scripts, rather than just a deb.
Imho, we need to consider what bugs this would fix in relation to how much work it is to switch, and what possible new issues we might run into.

Of course.  I figured it'd be nice for people having issues to try rather than to bake it all in before testing.  I'll be using libxine2 regardless, it fixes too many video playback issues for me not to (WAF is way up).  Have fun!

thanks for your efforts. 1004 is not needed as we already do use 1.2 in our test builds.

Thanks posde, hadn't looked that deep at it, I knew vdr was... great to hear!


btw, the cd2-packages for 1004 builder was out of date (0810 leftovers) when I put the 1004 builder together last week.  Do you have an updated version?
