Sorry guys, for being absent for a long far I still haven't been able to use my phone properly with qorbiter....perhaps I should exchange the device-ids on the phone and the tablet and see, if that makes any difference.

I'm not even sure how RSTP works with an IP camera.  It doesn't even sound related.

Code: [Select]
Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol
In 2001, the IEEE introduced Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) as 802.1w. RSTP provides significantly faster spanning tree convergence after a topology change, introducing new convergence behaviors and bridge port roles to do this. RSTP was designed to be backwards-compatible with standard STP.

While STP can take 30 to 50 seconds to respond to a topology change, RSTP is typically able to respond to changes within 3 × Hello times (default: 3 times 2 seconds) or within a few milliseconds of a physical link failure. The Hello time is an important and configurable time interval that is used by RSTP for several purposes; its default value is 2 seconds.

Standard IEEE 802.1D-2004 incorporates RSTP and obsoletes the original STP standard.

I am trying to use ONVIF camera. I did notice it uses rstp  like this
but rtsp://
I tried advance camera but no good here
tried gerenic ip camera no good

maybe some one could help figure it out..

I wanted to use the weather-plugin and got myself an api-key at openweather.
According to the thread in the developers-section (since there is no wiki-page for that yet)I found the following:
for NOAA  Configuration is   API:NOAA:language:units:lat:lon 
                            example API:NOAA:english:0:28.53833355:-81.37923649
for WWO  Configuration is   API:WWO:language:apikey:units:city 
                             example API:WWO:pt:0b6d39679dabe54e9749209aa2e54:C:belo_horizonte
for openweahter  Configuration is   API:OWM:language:apikey:units:city 
                                    example API:OWM:en:xxxxxxxxxxxx:imperial:belo_horizonte
So I adapted it to my needs like this:
This seems to be the correct usage to me. Please correct me, if I'm wrong

However upon reload router, it does not start and there is no data showing up. I went to look at the syslog and found this:
Weather[7140]: segfault at 0 ip b7546de6 sp b4afe0a0 error 4 in[b749a000+dc000]

So, the question is, if I did something wrong, or if there is something broken.

Users / Important upgrades to sqlCVS coming soon.
« Last post by phenigma on November 04, 2016, 07:32:04 pm »
Hi everyone,

This is mostly a heads-up notice that a pretty major back-end change will be coming soon.  There is a big change coming to the way that sqlCVS checks for changed records and compares records for importing into LinuxMCE's databases.

The background is fairly simple: MySQL 5.6 has changed the way that datetime fields and timestamp fields can be stored.  sqlCVS has always used a datetime of '0' to store records that have not been locally altered.  Two days before the release of Ubuntu Xenial 16.04 Canonical upgraded the mysql-server version they were to ship.  The new version no longer permits storage of '0' dates.  This has meant that some serious testing has been performed so that datetimes are properly converted to the new permissible format. sqlCVS must also continue to function properly from both the server and client sides.  All existing supported LinuxMCE systems (1204, 1404) and new systems (1604) must also seamlessly upgrade and continue to function as if nothing had changed.  During this update all tables (both server and client side) will be updated to store datetimes as NULL rather than '0' for unaltered records.

All tables and text fields will be updated to UTF8 on the schema server and LinuxMCE clients.  At the moment tables are converted to UTF8 after installation (the exception is tables in pluto_main which are already UTF8 on the server).  Converting the other server side tables will ensure that data is preserved and stored properly when sent to the schema server from clients.

I have done extensive testing on upgrading existing installs and new installations of 1204, 1404 & 1604.  Without these changes we have been unable to successfully install and run 1604 systems.  Once these changes have been applied we hope to release the first of our working 1604 builds for install and use.

On top of sqlCVS the next set of 1404 DVDs that are produced will be upgraded to the xenial Ubuntu Hardware Enablement Stack which means that new 1404 DVD installs should recognize all the same newer hardware that xenial can.  The Hardware Enablement Stack brings updated kernel and X.Org packages into trusty to support that newer hardware.  A new 1204 DVD will be produced but there will be no changes to it's Hardware Enablement Stack (the xenial stack is not available for precise).

Lots of other bugs are lurking and we're always looking for people that are willing to help out with other aspects.  Remember Rule #1 always.

Happy LMCEing!

Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Alexa and amazon echo skill
« Last post by garagevibes on November 02, 2016, 09:42:25 am »
Ok so after some more digging to secure our API we need to use something like OAuth2 and in fact to use it with alexa you can only use OAuth2. There are a number of ways of doing this as I'm quite fluent in php id probably prefer to go down that route. I haven't used cakePHP before but I've heard of it and ill gladly take a look especially if it simplifies the DB connections, I'm still getting my head round the changes in the depreciated mysql php functions which I've become accustomed to for years :).

There is a nice example and demo of implementing an OAuth2 server over on this site: I don't think it would be to much work to implement this on to the core.

In terms of security I believe keys are stored encrypted anyway so a person with access to the Linuxmce DB wouldnt get simple access to peoples accounts but if it really is an issue I guess a new schema just for this could be created with a password or something? But this is about giving an application like Alexa access to LinuxMCE not google giving LinuxMCE access to google if that makes sense.

Another option would be to implement a framework like this: designed to help create api's and offers a few different security options for securing them, this would give better flexibility and future proof with regular updates but there are obviously disadvantages as well relying on yet another 3rd party piece of software.

Im confident i can implement any one of these on to the core to secure our apis the next stage would then i guess be what do we want our api to look like what commands would we send and what would our structured responses look like to give the best usability and flexibility with multiple services?

Ill continue digging and see if i can implement something on my core here just as a test and come back to you all. Cheers for the help and advice as well, I will be back I'm sure  ;)

People have the raspberry pi as working media directors. Core is something that is not really suggested, due to i/o speed issues. If you want to run your core on an ARM processor, you can do using an odroid xu4.

I am building a xeon e3/supermicro box thought be good for this will throw in a crappy vid card and see if it installs when rest of bits arrive.  Was hoping the nuc be easy install to test compared to current nuc/rp3 kodi with freenas / ubuntu running similar servers as offered in linuxmce. 

The nuc is not reachable, cant ping it.  ifconfig reveals a host of problems.  Thank you for your help, but I can see this is going to be endless. And I am not going to continue on rule 1 waste your time and mine.

If this is this difficult on a nuc and has no rasp pi support.  This isnt for me.

You should be able to log-in with the user you created when you first installed kubuntu.  The files in question are created by lmce so this needs to be done after installation.

Thanks for your help.

I have some choices here...

In its current state i can reboot and I dcerouter login?  I read entering "ubuntu" here can get past this it didn't.  I cant get past this and i cant shh in because there is no lease on ip address.

Or am i to reinstall kubuntu and then past those files you mention?  I assume start from scratch again install Kubuntu and not to install linuxmce.
