Installation issues / Re: Endless Symbolic Link
« on: April 08, 2013, 03:50:10 am »
Not Working!!! :'(
If I copy the video's to the local hard drive, they work, but if I copy them to the raid (/mnt/devices/128/  public or user_1 or anywhere, nothing happens.  Before you shoot me in the head.  I would love to understand what is going on.  Which log file should I check before asking for more help.
I'm already thinking on using plan B.  Remove all files, from the raid. reconfig raid device and put them back.
But probably it is something fairly easy and Im willing to try to solve it!

Ha!!! disregard the previous Post!!!.  On the webadmin all looks perfect, but in real life, there are no thumnails, regardless of what says on the webadmin, and none of the videos work.

Anyone that knows how to drop the database and start from scratch??

Ok I think I fix it without re installation.

Fix fstab by commenting the /home that was pointing to the hardware raid, deleted the device that represented the raid drive.  After the reboot it was almost all good.

Linuxmce user had some missing files due to I used the raid has home for looong time.  I cp all the files that where at the now /mnt/devices/xxx/home/linuxmce to /home/linuxmce and voila!! now I was good to go to kde desktop.  Also, don't forget to delete the symbolic links within the users and public that pointed to the raid again and again.

Everything "looks" clean now except the database!

Resync did not fix it but auto tagging did!! 
I have to check anyway for all the files.  Just for curiosity, Is there a way to drop and rebuild the database?

Don't mess with the basic filesystems, you will break the storage layer epically. (Why is it that power Linux users have the hardest time with this system? you guys just want to break things because you assume how things work without actually studying how they work!)

Keep /home on the boot system, and simply let the system detect the RAID 5 disk, and tell it to use the disk with LMCE file structure. You'll need to move /home off of that disk, and then let the storage layer correct itself. This should also show you NOT to fuck with fstab.


Hi Thom,  ;D :D  :-X hahahahahhahahaha!!! Thanks for your words of wisdom.  There should be a " What not to do" Section @ the wiki!!!  8).  I'll work on it and see how it goes!.  I might take all out and start from scratch .  That could put me on the death list of my daughter and wife but if I fix it quick enough they might not notice

Dear Friends,  Im a little bit lost on how LMCE manages filesystems.  
Some Time ago I started working with 1004, when I migrated from 810, I decided to change a little bit the structure and use a  small SSD as system disk and a hardware raid 5 for /home
LMCE detect it as a new hard drive (I don't know why) so it is added in the list of devices.  The problem is that, now I have the symb link that creates a endless loop because it points to itself.  This is creating me some issues with the autodetection of media and I have repeated movies and songs.  This of course is happening for all the users since the "new drive" was selected to use LMCE structure.
Any way to correct this?
The problem becomes more evident as more files I add to the system.  This is also possible to see when copying files from windows, check image attached (From the content you can clearly see that this is my daughter's spot!  :P )

Any hints are welcome.

Thats a full stop.

What version of Android are you running? Sounds like a modded version as I have no experience the config not being placed in its location on standard android.



It is 2.3.  I´ll check if there is a permission issue although it asks for sd writing permission and it says yes.  So probably it is not the version of qorbiter, it is my tablet.

Dextaslab, where you able to solve the permission issue??

hm.... in my case the config.xml was located somwhere on the device....

i will check for the config later ...

EDIT: config.xml is located in /mnt/sdcard/Linuxmce as normal ...
hi, in my case there is no linuxmce folder at the sd card, thar is what is driving me crazy. Can someone ppost the app that is on the market so i can download it?

Hello to all,

I have a low end COBY kyros MID7014, it as android 2.3.3 and I can't get it to work because I can't find the folder with the config file.  Im unable to use the market version because it says that that software is not compatible with my device so I used the website version.  Why there is no config file on the sd?



     Are you able to get DTS-HD and True-HD audio thru the HDMI cable?   I have not just DTS (8 channel) and Dolby Digital.   

I dont know if it is a limitation of this version of xine.

Hi Ardirtbiker (Dennis),

I don't have any videos with DTS-HD OR TRUE-HD,  Ill get some samples and give it a try.  So far it is priceless the change, from normal stereo to at least 5.1 surround.  I don't think it should be a problem.  Pass Through will send anything to the receiver, so I guess that xine should send it.  The cable can be tested with speaker-test , I also have a DENON amp and with "-c 8" the amp picks it up right away.
I'll Get some tracks and test to see.  It's to bad there is no way to rip my BluRay Disk directly as DVD's.  Ill do some test and keep everyone posted. 

Also thanks L3mce for all your help!.  I will update the id41 for testing and post results.  So far this post looks that is about to change to "SOLVED!".  Thanks again to everyone for participating


Hello to all,

Thanks for the quick reply.  I fixed it!!!! ;D, I was playing with the xine.conf.  To get it to work I had to change to be more direct with the device
Code: [Select]
audio.output.speaker_arrangement:Pass Through

Thanks anyways ardirtbiker, you guide me to the right place!!!!

What I did for testing was work with the xine on the kdesktop, it was faster that way, I started playing around with the .config under .xine folder in root user so I did not wasted time going back and forward to the orbiter.  Once I tested all the combinations, just copy and paste!!!!

No luck for me, no pass through  :(.  Ardirtbiker, can you post your xine.conf and your alsa.conf?



by only editing the following lines in /usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf, I have surround  (Dolby Digital and DTS) thru my HDMI:

Code: [Select]
# defaults.ctl.card 0
defaults.ctl.card NVidia
# defaults.pcm.card 0
defaults.pcm.card NVidia
# defaults.pcm.device 0
defaults.pcm.device 7

and this in /etc/pluto/xine.conf:
Code: [Select]
without the added line in xine.conf, lmce displays a message that it cannot play the audio track (or something like that).

The reason I did this is because the HDMI audio is NOT card 0 in my system.. but is card 1 (NVidia) as listed by cat /proc/asound/cards.

Should it be possible to get DTS-HD and True-HD from the .mkv files (they have the HD audio in them)?


Excellent  Ardirtbiker! I will give it a try RIGHT NOW!!, I'll just do the proper adjustments of whatever my card is and post results!

An updated system should have done everything by itself. If this is an MD, delete it, upgrade your core, rerun /usr/pluto/bin/ and turn the MD on and it should "just work"™


Worked as expected!!! I enabled the Intel HDA let mce do the rest.  The only issue is that there is no AC3/DTS pass-through.

Excellent work, thanks.  I hope to figure out what is going on with ac3/dts stuff.



I am sorry for the confusion...

I have changed all of the source code to try and get audio over HDMI for everything. I am trying my best to make that guide irrelevant.

All you need to do, is get your pciid
lspci -nn | grep -w 'VGA' | sed 's/.*://;s/\].*//'

and i will add that pciid to the Backports_Required section, and you never have to follow the wiki again. It will "just work" out of the box.

Hi L3mc3, no worries, I know that you only want to help.

Here is the result
Code: [Select]
root@moon50:~# lspci -nn | grep -w 'VGA' | sed 's/.*://;s/\].*//'
