Installation issues / Re: Installing Diskless MDs

Maverick,

just a heads up. Installation of another tftpd server was successful. I will now need to implement the config for it, modify some package definitions in sqlCVS and hopefully, that will get us moving forward.

Users / HDIM CEC pnp

I have created a small test script to check for TVs on the HDMI-CEC string. I'd appreciate if others with HDMI CEC enabled MDs (mostly Raspberry Pis) check it out.

You must install cec-utils first!

Thanks.

I´m running the Core (14.04 AMD64) on VMWare ESXi without any issues. I'm using 3 dvb-s2 tuner (one terratec pic-e dual tuner and one terratec s2 USB) and VDR for tv. I'm also running 5 other VMs on the same physical server (HP Microserver Gen8), one being a LMCE 1604 for testing. The benefits running virtual for me is the ability to use functions such as minecraft server for the kids, UNifi AP-controller and more without messing with the LMCE system. i have snapshots so a roll-back due to me messing things up is done very quickly.

I have done some tests with proxmox some years ago to virtualize the core. The biggest problem I had, was performance issues with my quad TV card. You can passthrough the PCI slot, but still it ended up being way too slow at channel switching and HD was not even running smooth.
Also note that the dhcp server will be running in the VM in LMCE and as soon as you stop it (for backups or upgrades) you will have to find a nice way to still be able to connect to proxmox.

I am running it manually atm, but it involves using dpkg -r --force-xxx to get rid of atftpd and apt-get download another tftpd and manually installing it. This will cause the pluto-newmd-interactor package to be broken (in terms of package management, not functionality).

I am currently working on getting the MySQL glitches of 1604 sorted out. Between that and getting VDR onto a rpi MD, I'll see if I can find some time to get another tftpd into the mix.

Would I be able to install one manually?

Here's what the system settings are showing me. They are the same for both when the HDD is in the old computer and when it's in the new computer

KDELibs Version: 4.13.3
Qt Version: 4.8.6
Kernel Version: 3.13.0-116-generic
OS Type: 32-bit

It's also only showing 3.8GB of ram, but I have 16GB installed, and it's recognized in bios as 16GB

One other thing I did was grab the latest version of Kubuntu 14.04.5 LTS and installed that onto my SSD in the new computer. During installation the PC name comes up as "SMBIOS implementations newer than version 2.8 are not fully supported by this version of dmidecode." I noticed this happening before, but I didn't think anything of it at the time. This may be the root of my problem.

Also, I know I downloaded the 64bit version of 14.04, but after installation, the system settings come up as 32bit version, and again only seeing 3.8GB of ram when there should be 16.

My motherboard has UEFI BIOS, and doing a quick google search, I find that there's been a lot of issues with installing many different version of Linux on UEFI boards. There does seem to be some workarounds, but I'm going to keep researching for a bit. But if anybody has any quick fixes, I'll take them.

Thanks

See if both have run the same kernel. If they are, my money is on hardware.

So I'm still just throwing things out here. I'm playing around trying to narrow down where the root of this issue is coming from. I tried doing a fresh reinstall of kubuntu 14.04 on the old HDD while installed into the new computer, and I ran into the same issues I had with the SSD. I then took the HDD out and reinstalled it back into my old computer, and did another reinstall of kubuntu 14.04, and now it seems to work fine. Video, audio, everything works. Then I took the HDD and reinstalled it back into my new computer, and I'm starting to see some interesting quirks. For instance, when I pull up a video on youtube while the HDD is in the old computer, it works fine, but when I pull up the same video while the HDD is in the new computer, the video plays at double speed and I can't get any audio.

This just seems really odd. Might this be a hardware issue?
