apt-get upgrade problems
« on: February 15, 2011, 12:26:12 am »
After a PING backup I did the latest apt-get update and upgrade yesterday. I've not done one for months. It downloaded well over 400MB.

I was amazed to see that my HVR 2000 got detected and added. However I have tried ... but failed to capture with it. I also noticed that my usb to rs232 adapters were detected but wasn't sure whether or not to allow lmce to control them. I have tried both ways!

Since then all my rs232 controlled devices have stopped working (LG TVs and Denon amp).

Anyone experienced this? Should I give up and go back to my backup?
Cheers
Barney

Hi Barney,

It might have something to do with this ticket? http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/ticket/995

Hi Barney. Are your rs232 devices getting detected as "Generic RS232 Dongle"?

Thanks for the replies.

Yes, my usb to serial adapters are detected as "Generic usb dongle" and it looks like that ticket is the same bug.

Might go back for a while until it is resolved.
Thanks guys.
Barney

Hi. Delete the plug and play info in devicetemplate 1920 (PLCBUS) and the plug and play info for tricklestar in devicetemplate 1754 (zwave)
That solves your problem and make your devices identified correctly.

Best regards Daniel

Thanks Daniel,

I have reverted to my backup now. My main internal 1TB storage hard disk wasn't detected amongst other things so I'll wait a while I think.
Regards
Barney
