Installation issues / [Solved] KNX IP ROUTER 750
« on: July 18, 2011, 07:05:23 pm »

To control my home automation, i've got a KNX IP ROUTER 750.
Basically, this convert my ethernet network with the EIB.

Can you give me a hint how i can insert this into linuxmce in order to work?

Installation issues / Re: Installation drops direct to initramfs

Couldn't find the 24164-2nd.
So i tried it with the 24161-2nd. But this fails as well.

Now downloading the 24164 (the normal / first one?). And will try it with that one.
Hope this one will go, almost through my empty dvd's...  :-X

ps the USB-keyboard isn't working on all the latest versions for me. But a PS works..

Installation issues / Installation drops direct to initramfs
« on: July 13, 2011, 07:38:26 pm »

When i'm trying one of the latest versions (24147 & 24164), the installation stops almost directly into a prompt 'initramfs'. The only thing i can choose is the language and the next question (linuxmce, kubuntu...). I tried linuxmce or kubuntu, but both give the same result.
When i take an old version (fe 24012), the installation starts without any problem.

Any idea what goes wrong?

Okay, you're absolete right.

...If you don't have the time to do it good, when will you have the time to do it over...

This weekend a fresh installation, but it fails, again...
Damend, why is it so hard to install this linuxmce stuff... A simple apt-get install would be fantastic...  :(

hmmm, strange...

I did this, and then 'sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart'.
And everything seems in order. I nicely get an IP from my provider, the LAN is working...

Before i do anything else, i want to be sure that all settings are known everywhere.
So i rebooted the server.
But when i look nows, the /etc/network/interfaces is overwritten with the old stuff? The {extif} is back in place?

any idea how this come?

Not working like it should be.
I don't get any dhcp offers on the LAN with this configuration.

When i swap them back again, the LAN is working 100% correctly, but the WAN isn't recieving an IP from the provider.
So i think that this {extif} must be resolved before i can continue...

ps the installation was done as
This went great. With the ISO the system stops constantly with rendering and so... :$

Installation issues / {extif} for second interface
« on: June 26, 2011, 04:43:19 pm »

I'm having troubles with my 2 network cards. These are 2 build in ones on a Dell poweredge server.

  • In the config, the first one (WAN) is tagged as {extif}, and doesn't get a IP from my provider. The second one (LAN) is seen correctly (fixed ip on eth0).
    So this isn't working.
  • When i now swap the cables and chooes 'swap interfaces', my new WAN-port is tagged as eth0 and gets a proper IP from the provider.
    The second one is now tagged as {extif} with a fix ip.

So it's working in situation 2, but i suppose that something isn't 100% correct here.
Any thoughts on it?

Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Velbus: CAN bus
« on: January 27, 2011, 08:58:42 pm »

I started already 4 times a reply on this. And each time, i find myself to 'rough' in my replies. So this is my last attempt.
A moderator can close/remove this topic if he wants... Didn't have any good results, positive answers...

I really want to use a good product that combines IT with domotica.
And i really don't want to learn a program language to get it working.
So i'll put linuxmce beside, and velbus next to it.
And restart the search for other products, with a more userfriendly system and support...

Thanks for your great positive support and feedback...
Gives a good idea what you can expect from the global system...

No idea. I suppose it is? When i check their forum, they talk the whole time about C++ and .NET.
For the moment, i don't see links with/for linux...

 This should be a summary of the protocol:

Maybe you're right.
That's the whole problem/question: What's the best, where to buy, how much, pro's/contra's...

I'll definely look into the KNX product line...

Maybe it's an idea to put a kind of chart together with commonly used systems?
I really loved this chart for monitoring systems:
If i can help with this, give me a yell...

Maybe i describe it wrong...

   Velbus = hardware (cheaper then most domotica hardware)
   Software center = paid software
   linuxMCE = freeware

So wouldn't it be great if Velbus works with linuxMCE?
Great hardware stuff, great software stuff, for a low price?

And yes, i can learn to program. And yes, i can put 100's of hours of work in it. And yes, i can try/test/fail for 100 hours...
But hey, maybe somebody did it already? Or maybe somebody can help me out in, hmmm, maybe 4 hours?

« on: December 22, 2010, 10:09:06 am »

A really nice (and not so expensive) domotica system is Velbus. It has been created by Velleman. Checkout
They've got almost a solution for all systems, and even a software center.
But this software center is 'too' expensive.
Once you like the opensource software world... ;)

Velbus is working on the system 'CAN bus'.
And i'm thinking to see how i can implement this in linuxMCE.

Is it difficult to do this?
Or is anybody willing to have look a it?

Installation issues / Re: Dell PowerEdge 850; fresh install
« on: December 19, 2010, 07:43:04 pm »
poeweee, 5 hours search...

The installation way/procedure could use some fine tuning or up to date manuals...
I've found a lot of different things/ways/explanations of things on the net.

Apparantly when you use a terminalwindow, and run the script as root, it goes a lot better.
After this, when you reboot, you'll get the av-wizard...

up to the next step...

Installation issues / Dell PowerEdge 850; fresh install
« on: December 19, 2010, 11:55:08 am »

I'm trying to install the latest version of LinuxMCE (8.10-23535-i386) on a dell server.
First installation goes fine, but once i've got the desktop, i'm lost.

I can't find anywhere what tot do. Just a script on the desktop where i can run 'linuxMCE'.
A script starts to run, and after a while, i got an error 'Error - KdeSudo,   Command not found!'.
Only thing i can do is click 'OK'. The script goes on, but 'holds/freeze'.
I've got also the idea that some things aren't found to install (internet issue?). But the scripts runs on, so i think it's not a big issue?

Any idea what i can/must do now?

ps is it normal that in the boot menu of the cd, the options 'install kubuntu' and 'install linuxmce' gives the same result?  ???

Installation issues / Internal calls
« on: October 08, 2009, 06:09:16 pm »

Like you can read in another topic, i had some issues to get some cisco phones 7940 up and running. I think that i managed it now. They're registred with SIP and a new template. On the phone itself, i've got nicely a SIP screen with an extension (phone 1 = 201, phone 2 = 202). And in the admin site, i see them under the section 'Devices' - 'Phones'. Everything went nicely through the Oribiter screen (found no phone, reload router....).

But now my problem, i can't call from one phone to the other one.

Do i need to add some additional config? Like a dialplan or something? Or is this done automaticlly?
Has somebody a good walkthrough for this?  ???
