Developers / Re: New GSD Device Template for Linksys IP Cams
« on: March 27, 2009, 02:11:53 pm »
ok, tried it on friends machine ( no point trying on mine as it already has all the data in the relevant tables )

All worked perfectly except the ruby commands were messed has put in tons of extra commands that werent part of the template ( i.e. number keys, media buttons etc ) and inserted some of these with default hex IR codes.  I deleted these and manually entered the ruby code by hand.

So other than that it worked well. Many thanks

Developers / New GSD Device Template for Linksys IP Cams

I have put a GSD device template together for linksys ip cameras, i have tested it with my own WVC200 model and it all works great, plug n play etc.  Not tested on any other models.

A friend is using lmce and also has a linksys cam, whats the best way to export/import...i have tried Posde php script as listed here

But it generates errors during the export, although the sql it generates does look in order i cannot be certain until i test it ( which i dont want to do on my own db right now ).  Are there any other means to do this effectively ?

If someone can also let me know how i can get it integrated into the sqlCVS i can have a look at that.  I will also put a wiki page together for the cam model.

it did work fine, thanks! Guess i should have more confidence next time in the output msg...

Continuing with the build, hopefully all else goes smooth

Developers / Error compiling 0810 - Zaptel source
« on: March 25, 2009, 05:24:57 pm »
Finally got a new machine put together for 0810 and followed these instructions:

When running scripts/ i get the following error

Preparing to replace zaptel-source 1:1.4.11~dfsg-2 (using .../zaptel-source_1%3a1.4.11~dfsg-2_all.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement zaptel-source ...
Setting up zaptel-source (1:1.4.11~dfsg-2) ...
Bad luck, the kernel headers for the target kernel version could not be found
and you did not specify other valid kernel headers to use.

Updated infos about 1 packages

However, you can install the header files for your kernel which are provided by
the linux-headers-2.6.27-11-generic package. For most modules packages, these
files are perfectly sufficient without having the original kernel source.

To install the package, run:

module-assistant prepare


apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.27-11-generic

Is the current svn version broke and so should i revert to an earlier release or have i missed something ?

Thanks Hari.

Going to setup a separate box for using the 0810 codebase and go from there.

Users / Fujitsu Flepia - Possible orbiter

Looks nice, can run windows CE

Potential for an orbiter, ignoring the refresh rate...Perhaps a longshot.....but one can imagine.

Colin,  i would like to maintain a fully working system as it is used throughout the house by all the family, but i guess i could setup a separate box for development based on 0810 and keep the existing 0710 system in place for now....

So yeah i think you are correct, i'll make that leap to an 0810 environment.

ok, thanks Hari.

By any chance might you have any pointers as to how to do i change need to compile all the 0810 plugins or just the i change the Makefile in the 0810 version to point to the libs etc in 0710 or can i simply copy the 0810 plugin source into my 0710 branch and sort out the dependencies etc ?

Many thanks for you assistance.

Some further info:

The original file has a size of 15785848 bytes

The newly built has a size of 15697076 bytes

As mentioned in my original post, i havent changed any of the source....just built from the svn package

and also followed Hari's procedure as used in recompiling the climate and lighting plugin as described here

that procedure is from Bulek iirc not me..

looks like it fails to initialize the lauchmanager device..

Indeed you are correct Hari, apologies...i modified my original post. Thanks

Developers / Compiling Media_Plugin 0710
« on: March 17, 2009, 02:36:10 pm »

I have setup a development environment on my 0710 core as i would like to get to know the codebase and hopefully proceed to contributing something. I followed the instructions as listed here


and also followed Bulek's procedure as used in recompiling the climate and lighting plugin as described here

The source i downloaded is from

In my case i am attempting to compile the media plugin, so i followed Bulek's procedure as described in the above link but substitute his Climate and Lighting plugins with the Meda Plugin.

All appears to build correctly, the is created. 

Please note i have made no source changes at this stage, i am simply trying to get the media plugin to build and then check to see it works within the system.

After copying the newly created to /usr/pluto/bin/ and forcing a reload of the router, the launch manage reports the following :

Connecting to router at
initialise_LMdevice: Connect Failed
initialise_LMdevice: Not retrying
will retry later

It then continues to loop through the above.

If i copy the original back in again, all loads correctly.  So obviously i am missing something in my build procedure that is creating a dud library. 

Anyone got any ideas as to what i am doing wrong ?

Thanks in advance.
