Please feel free to add to the existing launch script and submit svn diff patches to trac.  I don't plan on doing any pulse support directly until the backend of the system supports it.  That being said, if you want it for this device provide patches to trac to add that functionality without breaking anything existing.

Is everything else working as expected with the squeezelite players?

Thanks for the testing!  I am running some experiments to figure out where the problem is, I'll update you when I have had a chance to do so.

today i got a little time and tried:

After a reboot everything is in working order again  :)
Still a bit puzzled as to why pluto-orbiter wasn't installed in the first place, after all this is a newly created rPi-MD, but happy that things are working now.
Phenigma, if you want to debug this strange behaviour and need any info from my system, you know you just have to ask :), i am more than happy to help, thanks!

Davegravy, FYI,
Please keep in mind that the z-wave implementation in Lmce 12.04 (based on open-zwave) is a lot different than the one in Lmce 10.04.
In comparison, the open-zwave based version has a lot more features and is very well maintained, but is also much pickier when it comes to its zwave-network setup.
Open-zwave needs a very good and stable z-wave network to work good, so if things worked in Lmce 10.04, that does not necessary mean they work as good in Lmce 12.04.

It's not really code just shell script I referred to:
http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=13714.msg99923#msg99923

Um?  No.  You can edit the device and describe it any way you would like, just like every other device in the system.
I mean the name squeezelite promotes itself with to the slimserver. That can be the description or whatever. It just a minor change which might help people when debugging.

Heh.  Ok.  I don't see any code or feature patches to support pulseaudio anywhere in the system in trac anywhere.  And since we don't support pulseaudio I will not add specific pulseaudio code until the system supports it.  That being said: Have you even tried it?  Have you put your pulse:sink name in as the output device?  I don't think you've even tried it and from the squeezelite documentation it appears that it should work as is.

I tried that when I created the squeezelite template and launchscript. The only option that is there beside the alsa options is pulse in general:
Code: [Select]
dcerouter_1039929:~# squeezelite -l
Output devices:
  default                        - Playback/recording through the PulseAudio sound server
You can however specify the sink as an environment variable as I did in my launchscript.


Look, I'm getting really frustrated that you that certain people continually complain about things without actually trying to do much of anything about it.  I work *really* hard here *for free* to try and support all kinds of things for people, including things that I don't use like the damn squeezeslave/squeezelite players.   So thanks for testing, I'm glad you're complaining that it doesn't slice and dice and make damn Julien fries at the same freakin' time.  I'm really happy that it's 'working' but not 'properly' becuase it doesn't describe the device to your satisfaction and that it doesn't support an audio subsystem that we don't support at all.

I feel your frustration. I spend just a fraction like you do and all my efforts towards most linuxmce things (like squeezelite) are wasted time since they are not used anyway. Back then I tried to create a separate device for squeezelite but could not get Linuxmce to recognize it as media playable device and stopped trying just because I felt it would end up as not being used anyway.

Since pulseaudio is on the list of wishes of some devs I thought that something small as supporting a pulsesink would not be a problem since it does not influence normal behavior although I understand it has zero priority.

But heeee J.... all your efforts are very much appreciated! We all love ya.  :-*

davegravy,

Recently i used a extension cable to get my aeon-labs z-stick away from my core, more towards my z-wave network, so there was no interference from my core on the stick.
Before it was plugged in the back of my core. I also positioned the z-stick vertikal.
I found a article online, discribing this as the recommended way.

After some testing i found out that my z-wave network responded much better.
Even a battery operated sensor, which previously responded every now and then, now responce great.

br,
Raymond

Hi RayBe,

Thanks for the suggestion, I think it's already vertically oriented however. This test node, as well as the 30 or so others that I have in my house, have been behaving beautifully over the last year in their current config / placement /etc.  I don't know if it is my Zstick that is failing, or recent changes to the LMCE Zwave implementation, a prankster hacker, or something else that is to blame, but something is definitely up.

The test node survived the night this time, and has about 12 hours of uptime now. I'll keep an eye on it.

Thanks for looking into it.

Code: [Select]
root@moon293:~# apt-cache policy pluto-orbiter
pluto-orbiter:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 2.0.0.46.14090829353
  Version table:
     2.0.0.46.14090829353 0
        500 http://deb.linuxmce.org/raspbian/ wheezy/main armhf Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Seems like it's not installed, which is very strange to me because it did before.
This is on the newly installed rPi-MD, after update&&upgrading my core and running /usr/pluto/bin/Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh
I did not recreate the SD-card, as this was at your latest content.

Thanks Raybe.

I haven't added back all my other nodes yet, so I still just have the one test node in my network.

This morning I couldn't control that test node anymore. From the logs it looks like overnight my CORE decided that the node was dead after several attempts to reach it. I tried a router reload but that wouldn't bring it back. A reboot fixed it however.

The node represents a lamp module which is 5ft away from the Zstick so it shouldn't have trouble communicating to it. I mistakenly deleted the log which shows the point last night where the communication died, but I'll wait to see if it happens again and post the log if it does.

No idea what is up.  No issues here.  apt-cache policy pluto-orbiter just to be sure.
