Installation issues / Re: Endless Symbolic Link

hmm.

*thwap-you-really-hard*

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

Installation issues / Re: Endless Symbolic Link (SOLVED)
« on: March 31, 2013, 03:28:06 am »
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.

Hi,

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??

Cheers,

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?

Cheers,

tompin2,
     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.device.alsa_front_device:asym_hdmi
audio.device.alsa_default_device:asym_hdmi
audio.device.alsa_passthrough_device:plughw:1,7
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!!!!

38
No luck for me, no pass through  :(.  Ardirtbiker, can you post your xine.conf and your alsa.conf?

Cheers,

l3mce,

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]
audio.device.alsa_passthrough_device:asym_hdmi
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)?

Dennis

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/Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh and turn the MD on and it should "just work"™


L3mce,

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.

cheers,

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/\].*//'

l3mc3,

With all the respect you deserve.  Can you explain me what I did wrong????.  I followed step by step the procedure @ the lmcewiki page you posted that was born because my post.  The only difference between your suggestions and what I have done is that I did disabled, just like you mentioned, the onboard intel sound card, but I did that a loooong time ago and it was working properly, so I never had the issue of card0 or card1, migrating to 1004 fixed may things but messed up the video and audio.  Maybe, you could consider that disabling the intel board could be another way to solve id41 randomness.    Am I following the wrong guide??? or i'm lost in translation. 
I do have sound, just not at lmce the way it should, well, to be honest, I do have the problem that I always have to run speaker-test everytime I restart.  Besides that, It seems to be something wrong in xine config file, just like phenigma posted. 
I will kill the md and try anything to help lmce community and of course myself, I believe in the product and the work you all do and I always wish I could help as much as you.  Right now I feel I can only complain  ;D , In the future, I hope might be able to help others as you do so kindly.

I will  continue to try some more with the setup I have just to learn more how stuff works and then, enable the onboard card and restart all over again and post results. 

Saludos,

T

Hi,

I forgot to mention that if I run a video directly on kde desktop, xine does use AC3/DTS pass through and Im able to listen to multichannel audio.  How xine is controlled by lmce? which is the config file used?  If the check to enable pass-through is activated, what does it does? what does it changes? which files are affected?

Cheers,

Hello to all,

Here is the feedback I can five.

Fresh MD image rebuild and apt-get upgrade to the lastest and I get nothing at aplay -l.  Follow the hdmi wiki and download backport drivers and my hda nvidia is detected as card0

aplay -l gives this:
Code: [Select]
oot@moon50:~# aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 3: NVIDIA HDMI [NVIDIA HDMI]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 7: NVIDIA HDMI [NVIDIA HDMI]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 8: NVIDIA HDMI [NVIDIA HDMI]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 9: NVIDIA HDMI [NVIDIA HDMI]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
alsamixer, all the outputs are muted, unmute all and do
Code: [Select]
speaker-test -c 2 -l 1 -t sine -D hw:0,7 with success output.

Modify asound.conf @ pluto/template so it sticks and my asound @ etc is like this every time I reboot

Code: [Select]
pcm_slave.convert {
@args [ RATE CARD DEV ]
@args.RATE {
type integer
}
@args.CARD {
type string
}
@args.DEV {
type integer
default 0
}
pcm {
@func concat
strings [ $CARD "," $DEV ]
}
rate $RATE
}

pcm.spdif_playback {
type plug
slave {
@func concat
strings [ "convert:RATE=48000,CARD=spdif:0" ]
}
}

pcm.hdmi_playback {
type plug
slave {
@func concat
strings [ "convert:RATE=48000,CARD=hdmi:0" ]
}
}

pcm.asym_spdif {
type asym
playback.pcm "spdif_playback"
capture.pcm "plughw:0"
}

pcm.asym_hdmi {
type asym
playback.pcm "hdmi_playback"
capture.pcm "plughw:0,7"
}

pcm.asym_analog {
type asym
playback.pcm "plug:dmix:0"
capture.pcm "plughw:0"
}
pcm.!default asym_hdmi

The problem is when I reboot, there is no sound UNLESS I execute the speakertest at the console.  After speaker-test is run, I have sound but there is NO AC3/DTS pass-through working.  Only 2ch is sent to the receiver, regardless of the configuration at the webadmin
If I try:

Code: [Select]
speaker-test -c 8 -l 1 -t sine -D hw:0,7

speaker-test 1.0.22

Playback device is hw:0,7
Stream parameters are 48000Hz, S16_LE, 8 channels
Sine wave rate is 440.0000Hz
Rate set to 48000Hz (requested 48000Hz)
Buffer size range from 16 to 4096
Period size range from 8 to 2048
Using max buffer size 4096
Periods = 4
was set period_size = 1024
was set buffer_size = 4096
 0 - Front Left
 4 - Center
 1 - Front Right
 7 - Side Right
 3 - Rear Right
 2 - Rear Left
 6 - Side Left
 5 - LFE


The result is successful on all speakers.  Any hints?

Cheers,

T
