Installation issues / Re: Delayed events not working
« on: June 08, 2015, 07:32:27 am »
Damned, guess I've got another problem. It seems that some events work, some don't.
Strange thing is that most of the events are rather simple once, and exactly the same. So it's not linked with the eib convertion, or with a 'complex' event. When i check the eib log file, it seems to enters when sensors are pushed. But for some events, it works, for others it don't.

ps RayBe, nice to see that other dutch speaking people are also using LinuxMCE. ;)

The event might continue after the amount of time, but during the delay, no other event is processed.

I confirm that this worked in 8.10.
But in 14.04, it seems to get stuck somewhere.  :-[

The delay event is problematic. iirc it stops the whole event engine for that amount of time.

Does it stops - stops, or holds for the amount of time?
Shouldn't the event 'go on' after the amount of time?

What i do fe to let my lights turn on for 3 minutes:

Create an advanced event.

My criteria:
Code: [Select]
PK_device = Sensor1
PK_EvenParameter = Tripped
State = Light1 = OFF/0
Time of Day = NIGHT

My commands:
Code: [Select]
command1: Light1 = ON
command2: Light2 = ON
command3: DCEROUTER = delay = 180
command4: Light1 = OFF
command5: Light2 = OFF

My lights come on, so command 1,2 is working, but afterwards, nothing...

For several lights, I built in an event that delayed some minutes, and power off the lights. (fe cellar, attick, outside lights triggered by sonar...).
But with version 14.04 / 12.04, it seems that the delay isn't working anymore? I inserted the exact same command as in 8.10, but my lights keep on.
Any idea how/where I could solve this?

Installation issues / 14.04 Firewall / Port forwarding
« on: June 04, 2015, 03:04:10 pm »
Is it possible that there's an issue with the port forwarding in the firewall part?
When I add a rule to forward port 10100 towards , it's not being added.

It doesn't show up in my iptables either...

Code: [Select]
dcerouter_1044981:~# iptables -t nat -L
target     prot opt source               destination         

Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination         

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)

Installation issues / Re: LinuxMCE 14.04 on ESXi?

And I closed it due to the ticket being about changing the internal IP address, which we do not support in any way and is well beyond network config and firewall issues, the IP is hardcoded in a million places throughout the code.  Patches are welcome to start moving away from hardcoded values.

Do I understand it that we're not allow to change our internal network?
Why is this 'change' possible/allowed in the GUI??? Best to write this explicit, and 'grey out' the network settings in the GUI?
Bum, that's a real downside of the whole thing. With the previous LinuxMCE version, i've changed it to my internal network, and everything kept on working.
If this is the case with the new version, I need to change everything (IP-camera's, fixed ip's of routers, switches, wifi, printers, KNX router, ....). And also own scripts for other purposes (power monitoring, gas consumption, water levels, zoneminder, cacti...). Glad that most of those scripts are host/dns based. But nevertheless...

I'll see to create a global grep in the system/db's to find any remains of the 192.168.80.x.  :'(

Installation issues / Re: LinuxMCE 14.04 on ESXi?
« on: May 02, 2015, 03:49:30 pm »
Sure I can give a bit more explanation.

After a clean install of kubuntu in ESXi, I'm getting:
  • eth0, connection WAN: (dhcp from internet provider modem)
  • eth1, connection LAN: (dhcp from old LinuxMCE server)

After this, I run the install script, and I'm getting after the reboot:
  • eth0, connection WAN: (dhcp from internet provider modem)
  • eth1, connection LAN: (fix default ip in LinuxMCE)

Now I want to change the IP for the server:
  • I change the eth1 setting towards, nothing happens.
  • I reboot the server, eth0 and eth1 are gone in CLI.
  • I check the LinuxMCE admin page, it's telling me that eth0 should be
  • I bring both interfaces up (ifconfig eth0 up & ifconfig eth1 up), eth1 is working correctly, eth0 doesn't have any IP. After a "dhclient eth0", I recieve nicely an IP from my internet provider.

To solve the issue, I've changed 2 files:
Quote from: /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf


Quote from: /etc/network/interfaces
# Loopback interface
iface lo inet loopback

# IPv4 network interfaces

# --- External NIC ---
iface eth0 inet dhcp
        pre-up sysctl -q -e -w  net.ipv6.conf.eth0.disable_ipv6=1

# --- Internal NIC ---
iface eth1 inet static
        pre-up sysctl -q -e -w  net.ipv6.conf.eth1.disable_ipv6=1
        # DNS Settings for Internal Net
        dns-search oniria.lan

# ---   ---
#iface  inet static
#       address
#       netmask

# Activating interfaces
auto eth0 eth1 lo
And after a reboot, the settings are still valid. But I'm a bit worried that other things aren't configured correctly as well (fe firewall and so?).

btw Last time, I've enable ipv6 through the LinuxMCE admin page, and the network was again down. So I guess that I'm not allowed to change any network setting with the LinuxMCE admin page.

Just did a re-installation, and indeed, the script runs nicely to the end.


ps still have the issue when I want to change my internall IP. But I guess it has something to do with /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf. When I comment the dns, make managed true, update /etc/network/interface, it works a lot better...

Installation issues / eibd/knx in 14.04
« on: April 27, 2015, 08:03:14 pm »
Not sure if I can mention issues with the latest linuxMCE 14.04 here.  :-[
Can you point me else to the correct place?

I was trying to link my eibd/knx installation, and if I follow the wiki for EBI.
The default interface (template 2195) with lights (template 37) should work out of the box from 10.04 or higher.
But it isn't. :$
The lights aren't responding.

I installed the bcusdk package with apt-get, added the route and started eibd.
And I can control my lights through CLI.
But still not through the GUI.

I then just copy the file /usr/pluto/bin/EIB from the old server to the new server, and restarted LinuxMCE.
And the GUI also works.

Let me know if I can test/do anything else...

Or at the least the installation. I had to run 3x the script to get to the end. But it gets there. I recieved the AVwizard, and everything seem OK now (nice orbiter screen after booting).
See the attached logfiles (stripped for upload size limit) for more info on the errors that stopped the installation script.

Next step, putting in all configs from my old LinuxMCE...  :-\
Let me know if you guys want me to test anything else. Before I start really putting all my config in there. ;)

And let's hope that the ESXi setup keeps as stable as everything else.

ps When I changed the internal ip from to, it ended up with After manually changing /etc/network/interfaces and a reboot, this seem to be ok...
And maybe a tip for future ESXi installations? Give the first interface the external network, and the second one the internal one. Can save you some headaches for network. Certainly when you're using trunks between your ESXi and switch.

I mean that we first install kubuntu, and afterwards all the rest.
This way, we can pindown if the problem with my installation is in kubuntu, or in linuxmce.

But I guess that the netinstall is the way to test now?
Is there somewhere a small quick how-to?
I'll see to try this tomorrow after.

Installation issues / LinuxMCE 14.04 on ESXi?
« on: April 24, 2015, 08:42:03 am »

Finally came to a point that I can give 14.04 a test run.
I want to do this on ESXi since most of my home machines run on there, and it's a great way to split the resources/risks/...

But when i try to install the "LMCE­ 1404­ 20150326121­930361.iso", it starts to install linux, and it gets stuck on the desktop. Everything has been copied and so, but i'm getting the kubuntu destktop, without any icons or so.
Any hints?

ps Is there any way to install it as an 'application' instead of full system?
