Installation issues / Re: Diskless Client MythTV Setup
« Last post by phenigma on February 12, 2017, 09:09:57 pm »
Upon starting MythTV on my new diskless client, I was taken to the language setup screen but could not seem to escape from this configuration step without hitting cancel. There was no way to watch TV or recordings with MythTV.

Doing some research, I followed the instructions here:

http://askubuntu.com/questions/347967/mythtv-cannot-connect-to-database

They required me to enter the IP address of the core in some configuration files and to manually copy the database password from the core to the relevant files for the diskless MD.

All is good now but I think that this should have happened automatically, as part of the install, as it has with historical versions of LMCE.

Should I submit a ticket for this?

this was all working but myth keeps on moving the target.  No one is maintaining myth here atm.  Feel free to create a ticket and feel free to fix it.  :)

Installation issues / Re: Installing Diskless MDs

No luck. I made the change to the file, reinstalled the card, and rebuilt the MD in webadmin. The system failed to boot the second time during the install process. Then, I pulled the card, rebuilt again and got to the AV wizard, as before. At this point, I'll just use the HDMI to component converter box.

Thanks for the help nonetheless.

The one on the MD, under the diskless directory.  Moon 82.

Which one should I edit? There are two options:

/usr/pluto/diskless/82/usr/pluto/bin/nvidia-install.sh
/usr/pluto/bin/nvidia-install.sh

I am guessing that the diskless one will get nuked if I rebuild the MD again.

I wouldn't worry about the id for your card yet.  Find the bit where it determines the driver and set them all to nvidia-340.

OK. I had a look at the script and there is a variable defined as follows:

Code: [Select]
LogFile="/var/log/pluto/nvidia-install.log";

The script apples logic based on the kind of nvidia card that is detected so, I need to know which version code is associated with my card. I am assuming that it would be logged in the log file. However, the log file does not exist in /var/log/pluto. I am guessing that it may have been nuked when I rebuilt the MD without the nvidia card in the machine.

I am happy to put the card back in and have a look to see if the file is created. Is that the right approach? Is there another way to figure out which code would be returned by my card so that I can discern the right part of the script.

Sorry for the newbie question.

The Nvidia install works perfectly with modern cards (no issues here).  It's not the image, the image boots fine.  It's the Nvidia driver install that is breaking things (as best i can tell).  You might try editing the nvidia-install.sh script and tell it to use an older version of the drivers.  If that works then a permanent workaround could be made.

Success. I pulled the nNvidia card and pressed the rebuild button in webadmin. The system booted through to the AV Wizard and Sarah's setup screens. I completed the installation and can now watch movies hosted on my core.

The problem definitely had to do with creating the images specific to nVidia.

Please advise next steps. You may recall from my earlier posts that I am using CRT televisions. I want to use the old GeForce 7300 card because it has a component output. I would like to avoid using an HDMI to component converter box, as I am with my hybrid. Lets please get the nVidia install working.

Also, I setup the diskless MD with analog sound. As on my hybrid, volume and mute controls don't work. I think there was mention in relation to my earlier posts that the linkages to Xine or ALSA are broken. This pretty much means that I have to use a receiver. Luckly I have two Denons and may do this, but was not planning on it. Will internal volume/mute control ever work again? What is the status of integrating VLC? An update would be great.

Thanks for the help.

Pull the‚Äč Nvidia card out.  Try with the Intel drivers on the i3.  That's my best suggestion atm.
