Installation issues / Installing 12.04 from USB stick
« Last post by KirkD on September 13, 2014, 11:49:33 pm »
I downloaded the 12.04 version of LinuxMCE .iso and created a bootable USB drive with the installer in place.  When the installer starts up, I choose the Guided option to allow the installer to use the full disk as it pleases.  On the Timezone screen, I get these errors:

'ubi-partman failed with exit code 141...'

'ext4 file system creation in partition #1 of scsi1 (0,0,0) sda failed'

The system I'm trying to install on already has an Ubuntu installation on it - 14.04 LTS which seems perfectly happy, but I cannot get this one to actually access/write/partition the disks. 

Any tips are greatly appreciated.

-Kirk

System specs:

Zareason Breeze Server 5880s
i7-4790 3.6-4GHz
16GB DDR3-1600
2x2TB 7200 rpm drives currently configured as software RAID
2xGigabit Ethernet

I understand that you feel you need to protect it. However I don't think that it will really take of quickly if it is not really open. My feeling saids we need some companies like yours or in other areas (and preferably bigger) that really support and push forward the system. I think it's to risky business wise to build on software like this if it is not really open (and no big company supporting it, and even those fuck up most of the time in the long run somewhere). It could work if the base is open (like linuxmce and you have some nice add-ons that make it more smooth but the basic should function.

However since the relative little response here in the community I suppose most here are cheapskates not willing to donate even one penny to make it really open. Never expected it to be that way. The only excuse is that it is not clearly stated that your work will make linuxmce also get rid of the current constrictions (and to me that is also still not clear).

Hi phenigma,

I haven't had much time to play with the CuBox since I posted. 

I have installed Fedora 20 on it with Xfce4 and LXDE Desktops.  They ran fine.

Cinnamon Desktop went into a software rendering mode for video and I didn't spend time (yet) trying to figure out why.

The box is HDMI 1080p with CEC 1.4 with 3D support using a GC2000 GPU .

3D GPU Type is OpenGL ES1.1, 2.0 Quad Shader.

Video Engine is a multi format video decoder and encoder.  I'll need to look around the forums to see what's runable.

fbdev driver works.  For Fedora look at the following.

https://github.com/jmontleon/fedora-20-cubox-i_hb/blob/master/README.md

This weekend I am going to try to install a Fedora ARM spin with the MATE desktop manager.

http://fedoraproject.org/en/get-fedora#arm

I guess if you really wanted to play with it I could drop it off to you sometime when I go up to the Big City.

Cheers.

I have started to look at how to possibly PXE boot the box using the raspberry pi as an example but I haven't tried anything yet.

I'm contemplating trying Win 8.1 RT software, but I haven't really looked into it yet.

http://www.solid-run.com/community/topic9.html a start for the GPU.

Any person can intall LinuxMCE for personal use without the need for a license. Anyone that wants to make money from it, needs a license.

The restriction of the PPL is that you cannot use LMCE commercially. There is no restriction to your personal use however.

With the DPL we will have a range of commercial licenses available. Some will be designed for small companies or private individuals that want to build a business around Dianemo and some will be designed for larger companies. And of
course there will be no restrictions at all to non-commercial use.

We feel that's a big improvement on what we have currently.

Why should a private entity care if it is PPL or GPL? For Joe Doe the PPL does not put any restriction to the use of LinuxMCE

I thought you are not allowed to supply LinuxMCE installations without a license from Pluto?

Hmm.  Nice device all in all.  Certainly seems like it could be much more capable than any pi.  There's a bunch of things that are required to make it work:
  • u-boot for cu-box with pxe patches
  • kernel built (with appropriate patches)
  • default initrd to interact the the NewMD_Interactor
  • lmce MD packages built for ubuntu armhf
  • changes to Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh (as required)
  • other specific changes (as required) to config files
  • media player created to utilize whatever accelerates video playback
  • anything else that comes up along the way

Some of the above is easy, some not so easy. ;)  As I don't have one there's not a lot I can do here with the device.  #1 requires patching and building u-boot, I can provide the pxe patch for u-boot.  #3 is easy after #2 is done, by following the raspbian example.  #4 I'm planning on doing already generally for ubuntu armhf... someday.  #5 I'm planning on doing already generally for ubuntu armhf after #4 is done.  #7 is not as hard as some might think if you have even a minor amount of programming knowledge, it just takes time.  #8 can be the kicker as obstacles are difficult to predict.

The 2 majors:
Question:  What kind of video acceleration support does it have?  What codecs can it support playing?
Question:  Does it have CEC control built in?  If so, do you know if it is libcec compatible?

There are an army of arm devices out there, and since it takes effort to support each one, choosing what to support may be difficult.  The most ideal situation is one where libxine2 works on the device for video acceleration.  I don't know of any arm devices where that is the case yet.  rpi has omxplayer, I have leveraged that to provide media on the rpi.  The Cubox certainly has the potential to live up to what is neccesary but I have no way of testing it myself.  Best thing to do is likely to install ubuntu through the netinstall method, or perhaps fedora if you have issues with ubuntu, and see what it can do on the video playback side initially.

no problem.  I need to do a little bit more testing to ensure the new boot script works properly in all cases and then the switch will happen.  I'll post here when it does with any requirements.
