Users / Re: Update 10.04 to 12.04 = success (at least to me)
« on: April 17, 2013, 03:09:31 pm »
For anyone wondering what is working and what is not in 1204:  
There is a lot that is not working completely in 1204 at this point.  Very little has been tested.  

What users can do to help:
We need testers to identify the current issues and file trac tickets at so the issues can be looked at.  Be sure to search for an existing ticket identifying the same issue before creating a new one and then check the ticket regularly to see if there has been any action or questions.  This will help devs to trac the issues properly.

And, thank you to anyone who tests and files tickets for us!


ps, Polly: you're doing a great job on the upgrade script.

I have been pleasantly surprised by the prices as well.  I am definitely going with the buried induction sensor.  It seems to be the only device that will not be interfered with by snow and other weather events.  :)

Thanks guys.

:)  Yes I have been googling.  I was wondering if others had had any experience with any driveway sensor devices.

posde: ty, I have seen one of those links, but not the cartell one.

tschak: My parents would like the detection to work for any vehicle, not just theirs, otherwise I really like your suggestion!

Thanks a bunch guys!  I am definitely looking into buried induction sensors as IR break-beam gets mucked up by snow banks covering the sensor/receiver and PIR can trip on too many different things.

Ah, good question!  Only vehicle traffic at this point.

I am looking to use a driveway sensor to sense vehicles coming into a long driveway and hope to use it to switch on driveway lighting and entrance lighting.  This is for my parents house and so it may not be tied to lmce directly, but I may make use of the same thing at my house.  I am looking for something with a relay contact or such.  Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

:) Now you are outside my area of knowledge.  As I have not used cameras yet.  I was unaware that motion wrapper would create videos.  I thought everything was .jpg

Glad to hear it is all working now!

Okay, had to mention it :) 

When you got to /home/public/data/video/ do you see a link there for your device?  or just an empty directory?

Try running /usr/pluto/bin/ and see what the output is.

Let me know how it goes!  :)

Add your additional parameters to the 'Extra Parameters' device data in the webadmin for motion_wrapper.  These will be re-written to motion.conf every time the device starts.

You should try switching to scented glue sticks! ;D

Mmm, good idea.   ;)  So, I've approved the template, you should do an sqlCVS update and check the template.

And so...  I am, of course, on glue.  :P   Damn lack of sleep can affect you after a while.

I have checked the IR tables, as posde reminds...   And it looks like it is all there.  I will look at it again, and approve it.   8)

Sorry for the confusion.

Hmm, that's some strange results pre- and post- update.  The data that is missing is (as posde stated) from the IR table: IR Command Codegroup and IR commands (which are actually GSD commands).

I you are comfortable with the console try gaining root and running:

Code: [Select]
/usr/pluto/bin/sqlCVS -H -R 3999 -U anonymous~anonymous -r dce update
Answer yes to prompts it presents you (if any).

Code: [Select]
/usr/pluto/bin/sqlCVS -H -R 3999 -U anonymous~anonymous -r ir update
Answer yes to prompts it presents you (if any).

Perform another diff of dce and ir tables.  You *should* see the added codegroup and commands for your new template in the ir table diff.  However, if sqlCVS screwed up it may believe they were submitted properly and not show the diffs.  In that case you may need to recreate the codegroup and commands, or send the info along in a txt file so someone else can re-create them.

Let us know what you find and how it goes.

In the webadmin device tree, find your share.  Check the field PK_User (I think), what is it set for?  It should normally be set for LMCE structure (something like that).  Sorry about being vague, I'm not at a system right now to verify these settings.

You should never access your drive through /mnt/device/128.

Always access files through /home/public/data/audio/<device>/ or /home/public/data/video/<device>/ , etc.

Not sure if this is the best place for this.

I had to make some changes so TranslateUSB works. I show it on ticket #1738.
With those changes OneWire runs on the rpi. It just will not start on it's own. I have not installed any sensors yet but I will soon.

Sensors work fine. I had to reload router to see them in lmce-admin.

This is as good a place as any right now!   ;D

Thanks for the ticket!  I have been making good progress on pi MD creation and I hope to incorporate your changes very soon.

As for it not starting on its own, that is a result of not having the rest of the MD infrastructure in place on your pi.  I have it running but have some things to do before submitting.

Thanks again!  The testing you have done has been extremely helpful!
