Users / Re: Intrepid distribution gone from archives
« on: November 14, 2010, 11:04:18 am »
(1) we are working on getting LinuxMCE to build atop Lucid. (We still have a lot to do even after all the packages build. Major system changes have taken place)
(2) We are changing the master database to point to archived versions of needed 8.10 system packages.

This is the official message coming from us, the developers working on this project.


Thanks a lot for your hard (unpaid, sparetime) work! With a little patience from our side I am sure this will work out just fine.

It sounds like you guys have a pretty good picture about whats wrong. It seems like the ticket misses some of the info above?

OK, thanks for your answer. I will do that.

Users / Adding HDD with MCE file structure
« on: November 02, 2010, 10:29:14 pm »
Hi all,

I have a USB HDD that is already formatted with the mce file structure. It also has some media on it. I would like to plug it into the core and make the system understand that it is an mce file structure and use it as such. Shall I select the option "Use MCE file structure" when mce detects the drive? I don't want to loose the data on the drive...


Users / DVD rip stopped working
« on: October 29, 2010, 09:57:47 pm »

I decided to take the effort and rip my dvd collection for convenience, using the built in ripping functionality in MCE. After successfully ripping four DVDs I decided to also rip an audio CD. I should probably not have done that... After this the DVD ripping does not work. Linux MCE does not recognize one single DVD, when I select rip it sets title "Unknown". Subsequent ripping fails. When I look in the web admin I find an error message "error writing to /home/public/data/video/bla bla". Audio CD ripping still works. I rip to the same drive so its not the HDD that is messing with me. The DVDs are recognized correctly in KDE. I can open them and browse the file system. It seems to be a MCE problem. Rebooting the core and the MD does not improve the situation. I also tried deleting the audio files I ripped and resynchronize the media files. No improvement. It does not complain about libdvdccs.

Does anyone recognize this problem? Is DVD recognition and ripping known to be error prone?

I have been using the system for about a month now and I must say I'm impressed by what you have accomplished! So I hope to get passed those initial hurdles... :-)


I can not playback m2ts files from my panasonic AVCHD camcorder under MCE 810. The problem seems similar to yours nite_man,  when I read this thread. Did you have any progress? (I did not try the backported xine since I do not want to break VDR) or shall I forget about this?

I installed the latest snapshot of 810. That solved the problem.

Thanks for your answer! I tried all of your above suggestions, unfortunately it didn't solve the problem. I still get the same error message. I expected that the changes you suggested in the web interface somehow should be reflected in my xorg.config. But that file did not change. Is that normal?

I also saw in the 810 installation tutorial that you should take all updates to kubuntu before mce installation. So I reinstalled everything from scratch to do as explained in the tutorial, but nothing changed.

When I said the UI1 is working, that is actually not 100% true. The video with the speaking woman that should be playing during the setup does not work. I get a black square instead. So I guess something is very wrong with my graphics driver.

When I go to the KDE desktop on my MD it says that I am not using proprietary drivers for my Nvidia card. It suggests to use proprietary Nvidia driver version 180. I am not sure if I should do that. When the MD starts up it always shows a message that nvidia driver 195.something is used.

More suggestions are very welcome!

Thank you guys for your help. The script took indeed a very long time to execute. It is probably a good idea to have this as a separate step for those who need it.

It may be a good idea to document this in the user guide.


Installation issues / Orbiter failed to setup transparency
« on: September 30, 2010, 11:24:28 pm »

I saw this topic was discussed in this thread

However I didn't see any helpful info here, and it was a few years ago, so I decided to post the topic again. This problem arises when I try the UI2 with alpha blending.

When I examine the xorg.config file I can see that the driver is set to vesa. From what I understand, this means that the installer did not manage to correctly identify the graphics card. This would probably cause my problem. Any suggestions how I should go from here? Can I manually hack my xorg.config to make this work?

Some info about my system:

dedicated core with AMD phenom dual core and ATI graphics. I don't have any monitor or TV connected to the core.

diskless MD with zotac geforce 9300 motherboard. Intel core2 quad. 4 GB of corsair. (this is the one experiencing the problem)

Running 810. Made a fresh install on core from DVD. Didn't do any changes in kubuntu desktop before running mce install.

Diskless MD PXE boots without problem. AV wizard works fine. UI1 works fine. I did sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get dist-upgrade. No improvement.

Any help is appreciated!


Users / PXE boot problem in 8.10 [solved]
« on: August 01, 2010, 09:16:26 pm »
Hi all,

After doing a fresh install of 8.10 on my core server, PXE boot does not work. In 7.10 there was a default file in /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/ and also initrd and vmlinuz files under /tftpboot/default/. All of this is missing in my 8.10 installation.

Could anyone point out to me what I am missing out here??
