Installation issues / VPN
« Last post by maverick0815 on February 17, 2018, 01:25:28 pm »
I am trying to establish a vpn tunnel to my cell. I have tried following the wiki about this but so far I have been unsuccesful.
Do I need to add firewall rules on the core?
Any help would be appreciated.
thanks.

Installation issues / Re: Samba shares and updatemedia

I had a little chat yesterday with Tschak and he asked me to get an output from gdb for that and create a ticket.

Installation issues / Re: Samba shares and updatemedia

Just as a headsup: I am on trusty i386, and things are humming along nicely. My UpdateMedia process had something like 17000 minutes of runtime, before I for kicks disabled it just now, and reenabled it afterwards.

Check the files you added recently, and see if removing them again, make your problem go away.

If that works, add one by one again, and see which one is causing the issues.

Installation issues / Samba shares and updatemedia
« Last post by maverick0815 on February 16, 2018, 07:12:49 pm »
Both have suddenly stopped working. Today I had to reboot my server and since then I am unable to access the fileshares from my windowsbox. it always asks for my credentials. The samba logs say that it found a misconfigured server role and exits

While checking around I also saw that updatemedia is producing a segfault. there seems to be an error in libstdc++.6.0.19

Installation issues / Mythtv Channel Icons
« Last post by cafedumonde on February 14, 2018, 02:45:24 am »

From my post this evening on IRC:

Hi...is there any advice on how to download and install icons for mythtv. I ran mythtv-setup as user mythic but no luck. I have also tried copying icons to the channels directory for users root, mythtv and the one in /etc/mythtv. icons are owned as mythtv:mythtv, the same user that runs mythbackend. Any advice would be appreciated.
 
Thanks,

CDM

Many apologies I've been off the scene for a long while with work commitments and also my old system died a few months back, but I've now begun to start back up.
Ive got a nice fast new server now up and running with multiple vmware virtual machines, I have a few bugs one with passing through my zwave dongle and the other with the dhcp server not giving out addresses which is weird but anyway I'm getting there.

So anyway before I left I had Alexa controlling my lights as well as scenarios/scenes and devices like my boiler for heating and hot water, it was fairly reliable and the Oauth2 part is simple to use once setup and not an issue using just plan old PHP it just needs a few tables set up in the database and the code pushed in to the web admin pages.
The main problem was that it wasn't really usable for end users as Amazon requires Oauth2 handshaking with a server in order to use the home skill kit and Amazon are very picky on the SSL certificates that you can use, I brought 4 from various budget companies like godaddy and none of them would work, so in the end I had to route the requests through a web server I have access to at work which has a high end corporate certificate.

You don't need oAuth with a custom skill however and i actually did a presentation with work before xmas where I created a custom skill to ask for company information and send the latest reports to users and things just as a sort of demo of whats possible so I may look at going down this route next.
The down side though is you would then have to use an activation word each time like "ask Linuxmce to set living room lights to 30%" but the up side is we should be able to do something like "ask Linuxmce to play Xmen in Living room" and control media which would be cool.

Anyway as soon as i get my lights working again through the normal means ill get back on the Alexa piece and see if i can help out :)

Would love to work with you on this.

So far i have
Cloud:
SSL enabled cloud router with oauth authentication going.
Site with user login, no profile besides showing what is linked, ability to set location with nickname (no multi-location support yet)
Note that im open to sharing the cloud code with other developers since it is a box that connects to your house.

Amazon
Alexa smarthome integration app so you can say commands minus 'ask linuxmce' (lighting is only thing implemented now
Custom Alexa skill for media, so far video media is working

Cakephp used in cloud and on linuxmce. I dont like frameworks, but now that ive figured it out, the same code can be reused for multiple api's eg google and iftt.

Remaining before beta testing:
Implement oauth server on core, oauth client in cloud server so core can only be accessed with access token via those apis. Ive done this before, just requires some hours. I should have done it today but the promise of launching Frozen on the media director via lmce was too much of a pull :)

*Lots of testing

Both sites (cloud and core)
running php 7.2
Using Cakephp3 framework for api and user management in cloud, api on the core. It actually integrates moderately well with the existing DB, so no new user authentication mechanisms are needed.
-OAuth2 server security component https://github.com/uafrica/oauth-server
-OAuth client security component implemented in the cloud will be an updated variant of https://bshaffer.github.io/oauth2-server-php-docs/cookbook/

New db tables are needed on the core, but they are actually installed by a cakeplugin so....yeah we will need to see how that goes. i took the plunge myself, and have not seen any adverse effects on my core db wise.

does anyone know if the other code ever got checked in?

mine is here https://git.linuxmce.org/linuxmce/linuxmce/tree/master/web/lmce-api

i went with cakephp because i can easily provide amazon, google home integration from the same framework. Really anything else that comes along requiring an oauth endpoint.
