Installation issues / Re: Unable to add generic pc as MD - templete 28
« on: September 16, 2012, 11:30:45 pm »
The whole environment is the same i had with 8.10, where the MD worked (core, md, switches, ip phones, ata, z-wave, etc... The only change is is the new 10.04.
Thats why i'm asking about template 28. Yes, i also did run the create TB?? (don't remember exactly the name) before trying to boot the md.

Okay, I understand what you are saying.  Was this a DVD install or a net install?  If dvd install, which snapshot did you use?  If you used snapshot you should not run Diskless_CreateTBZ as it is already done for you.  If you did a network install did finish completey and tell you there were 'no detectable errors'?

Do this:
Remove any manually created MDs on your core within webadmin.
Quick Reload dcerouter
Turn on the MD with PXE boot enabled

What happens on the MD's monitor?  It should show you that it has 'Announced ourselves to the router' and that it is 'Running Diskless_Setup'.  You should see these things on your MDs monitor when you PXE boot it the first time.  Are you seeing this?  If you are not seeing this, what exactly does the MD do when you turn it on?


Finally, do you think we could get a FAQ going just about how 10.04 asterisk is supposed to work and the gotchas? Searching the forum and/or wiki gives you all the flavors of asterisk used to date and is highly inefficient. Since freepbx is no longer implemented, searching the web isn't useful as it assumes you are using freepbx as part of the solution.

Guys, remember that documentation is a community effort.  *Someone* needs to produce the wiki docs, it would be great if you guys could document what you discover as you are going.  <nudge, nudge, wink, wink>  File defect tickets for any functionality that is present but not working.  File feature_request tickets for any functionality that does not currently exist.

so, any hint in how to solve? i guess not, so so, for the third time in 3 days i will install the whole system again from ground zero: spa3102 does not work, my sip line are mute for incoming and outgoing, the diskless media server is recognized as a file server.....

Sound like you have not enabled PXE boot or 'network boot' on the machine you are trying to use as an MD.  If you PXE boot the machine it will be automagically detected as an MD and install all the correct templates.  Do not attempt to do this manually!


This looks like the same thing my upgraded core has been doing.  I'll try to have a look later today and see if I can chase it down on my core, could be the same issue that others are having.

You will not need to run the TBZ file... and chances are everything will "just work". I would put those chances pretty high at the moment.
Yes, I should have mentioned that, sorry L3mce.

The large delay and the ssh issue are networking issues, as L3mce indicated in a previous post.  The database connection errors are normal.

Like L3mce I have an industrial automation/PLC/DCS background.  Allen Bradley/PanelView, Modicon, Wonderware...

There is a lot to learn here and help available when you need it.  Have fun!

I was a bit impatient i think.   ::)

The error 'ERROR 2003 (HY000): Can't connect to MySQL server on 'dcerouter' (110)' needed to be about 20 times on my screen, and took about 15 minutes. After that, the installation went one without errors .

I will look at this.  It doesn't take that long to fail connecting and continue on my systems but I'll see what its doing and determine if it needs to make the connection or not.

Also, your MD *should* boot at reasonable speed.  Install from the snapshot as L3mce suggests.

I've installed it from the DVD.

And when i run /usr/pluto/bin/Di...., it results in an error after a while:

brononius: Is finishing or stopping at this error?

This error will not prevent MD creation afaik.  This is an error at the time of creation of the mythtv_player within the diskless image chroot creation process.  The diskless image in the chroot is trying to contact the mysql server on the dcerouter, it cannot resolve the address.  afaik this is normal behaviour during the image creation, at least that is what is has been doing for me and I have no issues.  Again, this indicated error should not prevent the MD creation at all.  I've added raspbian image generation to this script and I have tested it *many* times here for ubuntu i386 diskless image creation and I have had no issues.

If you add an MD manually it will not have it's /usr/pluto/diskless/XX directory structure created for you automatically.  You can manually cause it to be created by selecting the MD in the webadmin and choosing "Rebuild Image".  But this should not be necessary, the system should be detecting it automatically.

Side note to L3, already creates it's own log file of it's activity and displays the name of the log file when the script starts.  log_file=/var/log/pluto/Diskless_MD_Creation_$(date +%Y%m%d_%H%M%S).log


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.

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.
