Installation issues / NOISY screen after installation is finished New 12.04
« on: February 20, 2014, 04:06:58 pm »
Dear All,

I was trying to install LMCE 1204 on a Proliant ML350 G4P (internal VGA no nvidia), just to have it as a headless server.  Installation wizard was perfect but just after reboot y got this noisy black with some dots or vertical lines as screen.  I was unable to do anything.  Then I tried only kubuntu 1204 only that this time I realized that the same thing happened but the messy screen was during the splash, after the splash then the log in screen was present without any issues.  Does the AVWizard shares the same vid config as the splash screen?.  Can this be fixed or is there any walk around?

Hello to all,

I am just finding on the way that there were some consequences, Sara's videos are gone!!! I forgot to back'em up hahahahahaha, and maybe many other things.  Also mythtv is not working I don't know why.  uPNP server is giving an erro code 500 which I have no idea what it is or if it is related or not.  Everything else seems to be good.

Dear Friends.... I ended up doing it the "easy" way.  I took all the media out.  Cleaned the RAID, mkfs, waited until the beautiful blue box  at the orbiter asking me to add the drive, LMCE structure, put the files back.  It is interesting to mention that the first time, i used gparted to make the FS and did not worked, the drive was there but it was undetectable by LMCE.  I think that it used something else than normal ext2 or 3.  Tried again at the shell and voila!  (#mkfs /dev/sdb1/ ) .  I followed the "adding a new hard drive" @ the wiki of LMCE, worked perfectly.

Thanks again for all you help,

In the webadmin device tree, find your share.  Check the field PK_User (I think), what is it set for?  It should normally be set for LMCE structure (something like that).  Sorry about being vague, I'm not at a system right now to verify these settings.

You should never access your drive through /mnt/device/128.

Always access files through /home/public/data/audio/<device>/ or /home/public/data/video/<device>/ , etc.


Hi Phenigma,

Thanks for your help, I checked and it is already selected to LMCE structure.  I always access the files via /home, It was just to mention the real path, but thanks anyways for the guidance. 
Any hints.?

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??

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!!!!
