Installation issues / Re: Sound Problems 1004 beta
« on: October 22, 2012, 01:27:48 am »
Hi l3mce,

Hi SBCC, what is this hardware?
lspci -nn | grep VGA

I have loaded lmce onto the machine that was giving me the problems with the "Failed To Setup X".
Installed with no AVWizard start. Sarah started ok and went through that. UI1 started with sound. Restarted with AVWizard and now I get "Failed To Setup X"
On that machine which was the new MD I get;
Code: [Select]
dcerouter_1031922:/home/jim# lspci -nn | grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: nVidia Corporation Device [10de:10c3] (rev a2)

Check to see that you indeed do NOT have internet (ctrl alt f2) ping -c4 google.com

Also
Code: [Select]
ping -c4 google.com
gives me a good response

If you DO have internet, simply rebooting should solve everything... it will pick up and start rolling. My guess is you are using the nouveau driver.
lspci -nnk | grep VGA -A3 to be sure.

Here I get
Code: [Select]
dcerouter_1031922:/home/jim# lspci -nnk | grep VGA -A3
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: nVidia Corporation Device [10de:10c3] (rev a2)
Kernel driver in use: nouveau
Kernel modules: nvidiafb, nouveau
01:00.1 Audio device [0403]: nVidia Corporation High Definition Audio Controller [10de:0be3] (rev a1)

I will try rebooting here now

On the other machine that has the upgraded 26373 (i believe I see some 26579 software in that upgrade.) After running the alsa fix I can play video and have sound but it is bad. I'm going to run the AVWizard again there and see what that does. I will then put it back to where it was when I was adding the MD mentioned above.

I know I am kind of mixing threads here so let me know how badly I have confused you.

By the way. My external router does not clear out its client list often and I can successfully ssh into the hybrid with several IPs Seems wierd??

Thanks for responding

Let me know if I can do more.

Update;
I rebooted the MD that is currently running its own lmce install 26373 (not upgraded) and get the same "Failed to Setup X"
The post screen did show it installing the nvidia driver.

Another update;
The hybrid that I did the upgrade on that had no sound. I upgraded the alsa driver and now the pci sound device shows on the AVWizard. After selecting stereo analog (what I have to test with) I get static. So that trick it out of my bag of tricks. I'm going to set up my hybrid/core as "Normal Operating" now. If needed I can try to install that "Failed To Setup X" machine (will refer it as MD1 from now on) as an MD and see what we see as far as internet if you like.

Thanks again

Update;

Did a fresh install of 26373 and can play video. Upgraded and cannot play. All on hybrid MD.

Also noticed that core/hybrid never gets registered so must not be that and I'm just taking shots in the dark

Did a fresh install of 26373 and upgraded. This is what I found;

AVWizard starts which normally does not due to alsa problem(I usually fix this by upgrading the asla driver)
No sound pci listed in wizard
No sound

Also cannot play video still on hybrid MD. I did not install any other MDs yet but will try now.

I'm downloading the iso now to see if that is any different

Update:
Media directors install fine. AVWizard completes fine. With sound (stereo analog) (tried analog on the H/MD as well no joy). Plays video fine.

I'm going to now try my asla upgrade script. See what she brings.

Installation issues / [Solved] Failed to set up x on media director
« on: October 21, 2012, 05:16:15 pm »
Ok I've run out of ideas here. I'm trying to setup a new media director and getting the dreaded "Failed To Setup X". There is no xorg.conf in /etc/X11 but there is a xorg.conf.pluto.avwizard. I've tried creating my own xorg.conf and deleting all the xorgs. No go.

Hardware on the MD is ASRock A55M-HVS, AMD A6, ASUS GT218 GeForce 8400 GS. All of this I guessed as compatible. I have had success in the past with the 8400. For
Code: [Select]
lsmod | grep nvidia I get nothing.
Code: [Select]
cat /proc/driver shows no such file or directory. Tried to install driver but cannot kill X.

So now I'm stuck. I just want to know if it's a compatibility issue or me as my bag of tricks is quite limited.

One thing to note if I remove the video card and go with the onboard "even HDMI" it works fine just not good enough. Also will not start AVWizard with that.

Thanks

I agree this is not a LMCE issue. It is some kind of hardware issue with the newer PC that I have. I believe I did get it working on that machine with a powered USB hub. I did get it working on an older machine.
Both machines I needed to run a separate circuit over to get good signal.
I will try again on the newer machine so others can use this information.

Thanks for the reply.

I installed the latest snapshot and it seems to be working ok. I now have to just fix my media raid and all will be good.

I really need a development machine.

Keep up the great work!

I think I had this working on an older machine. I will check. Also I may have added a powered USB hub to get it working. I have since switched to Insteon but I can see if I can take a look. I still have the CM15A.

Seems I may have broke something on my hybrid/core.  :(

I installed qbittorrent yesterday and now I no longer have sound on my hybrid/core. I have sound at the AV wizard and all the alsa outputs are fine and alsa mixer is unmuted. When i play a video I have nothing.

Any thoughts

I moved away from the CM15A to insteon to make use of the added functionality. I believe my CM15A was damaged but did not look that hard into it. It was, I believe, a communication problem. It is not serial so it makes it hard to work with. Insteon has serial units like the 2413U and 2413S that are both RF and power line. The unit I have 2413U is plagued with problems, as I found out. This was mostly seen on HomeSeer so I thought I was ok. The units buffer will suddenly stop clearing out and just keeps adding to the buffer and send that nonsense along until it crashes. I found it easy to develop with a lot of good code already written in ruby. It does communicates fine with X10 MS16A of which I have some set up already. I've ordered a 2413S and will see if that works.

Anyone have a problem with this hardware and buffer overrunning?

I've switched from CM15A to insteon and noticed the code has issues with X10. I'm adding patches for my devices and noticed the unit crashing sporadically. I chased it down to the unit not clearing its buffer after sending its string to DCE and just adding it all up. Just want to make sure It's not me. Or not just me. This may be limited to X10 commands.

Ugh..

I knew it was something simple. I hate asking questions as I learn best by looking up the code and trying to figure it out. But I was at wits end here.

Thanks you so much!!

Hello,

I'm trying to send information to GSD hardware attached to a COM port in raw byte format.

Like conn_.Send(0x44 0x00 0x01)
So the hardware receives just those bytes. I'm trying to keep this in Ruby but not sure if it will work.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

It is plugged into a 2.0/1.1 port now. I don't recall what it was plugged into originally. I have since deleted that device and let it install new in the different port with the same result. I'm experimenting with different machines to see what the results are. As soon as I have the opportunity I'm going to swap the drive out of the new machine and try again. I does appear to be a communication issue.
