Installation issues / Re: 14.04 No sound over HDMI
« Last post by jvandam87 on April 18, 2017, 03:31:47 am »
So I'm still just throwing things out here. I'm playing around trying to narrow down where the root of this issue is coming from. I tried doing a fresh reinstall of kubuntu 14.04 on the old HDD while installed into the new computer, and I ran into the same issues I had with the SSD. I then took the HDD out and reinstalled it back into my old computer, and did another reinstall of kubuntu 14.04, and now it seems to work fine. Video, audio, everything works. Then I took the HDD and reinstalled it back into my new computer, and I'm starting to see some interesting quirks. For instance, when I pull up a video on youtube while the HDD is in the old computer, it works fine, but when I pull up the same video while the HDD is in the new computer, the video plays at double speed and I can't get any audio.

This just seems really odd. Might this be a hardware issue?

I'm just throwing things out here now.

I did a reinstall of kubuntu 14.04 on the SSD. I'm not sure if this means anything, but it's something I noticed when I do an install onto the SSD, but I never noticed before on the old HDD:
After I install kubuntu and reboot the computer, some warnings come up while it waits for me to remove the dvd and hit enter. Everything is written in an orange color (which I never recall seeing before) and says a couple things:

nm-dispatcher.action: Caught signal 15, shutting down...
ModemManager[1455]: <warn> Could not acquire the 'org.freedesktop.ModemManager1' service name
Unmounting temporary filesystems.... [OK]
Deactivating swap.... [OK]
Stopping early crypto disks....[OK]

Well, I'm really not sure what I did now. I used Clonezilla to clone the old HDD to the SSD. It seemed like it worked fine, but the SSD goes straight to grub rescue, and now the old HDD hangs during boot, never getting past the load screen.

What happens when you clone the HDD to SSD? ie no new install, but just clone the existing install.

Right. But it's more than just the sound. On the old HDD, everything works fine. Trying to boot from the SSD, I can't get any media to play.

I know the quick and easy solution is to simply boot from the old HDD, but I'd really like to try to get the SSD working first.

Thanks

Plugging the old HDD in makes the sound work again?

I just did a re-install of only Kubuntu 14.04, and did all of the updates. Even on Kubuntu, no media will play. No audio, no video, nothing. I tried opening a browser and going to youtube. At least there, the video would play, but still no audio.

Any thoughts on why this is happening? Everything works fine on the old HDD, but trying to boot Kubuntu from the new SSD seems to be causing problems with media. Any suggestions?

Try it :)

If all fails, just install something else. For an automation server the requirements are very low.

I have an old PC running Windows XP and I want to make it into a Linux-based home automation server using LinuxMCE. What are the minimum requirements to install LinuxMCE?

Here are the hardware specifications for my Windows XP:

•   CPU: Intel Pentium IV 2.8GHz
•   Memory: 1 GB
•   Hard Disk: Type IDE, Size: 250 GB
•   Display: standard SVGA adaptor and monitor
•   Peripherals: CD-Rom drive, USB ports, mouse, keyboard, sound card and network adapter

Is my PC compatible?

Thanks.

Seems the need to update the tftpd server grows...

Background: atftpd only supports downloads up to 32MB - I'll see what I can do create some new packages that will probably pull some other tftpd server in.
