[SOLVED] problem building media director
« on: June 02, 2011, 03:00:10 pm »
Hi I have recently been trying to build a media director using PXE boot.
At first I was getting a "cant find kernel error" but I discovered there was no MD# folder under tftboot and obviously no symlinks to vmlinuz and initrd.img here either.  So i created those and the build progressed. (the MD# folder dispapears when I rebuild the MD via webUI)

now it freezes at "done rebuilding nis cache"

cycling through using ctrl alt and f keys I can see

"Error 1045 (28000): access denied for user 'root @ ...."

any ideas ?

soemone else had this problem recently http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=11432.0
and here http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=11086.0
the last one was resolved by swapping NICs but mine are already eth0 for external eth1 for internal
I'm using the following snapshot
 LinuxMCE-8.10-24012-i386.iso     25-May-2011 20:16  
Gonna try rebuilding my core with the latest snapshot tonight nut any help woul dbe apreciated

Did you run Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh?

Yup, a couple of times reloading router and rebooting the core each time too.

Ok so running with the theory that this is a problem with my network config, (I had to assign the proper eth0 and eth1 to my NICs by editing /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

So I deleted this file and swapped the cables (I had already used the webui to swap the NIC)  
re ran Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh
rebooted the core
deleted the MD and allowed it to rebuild by way of PXE booting my MD.
But it still comes up with the same error.

Can anybody help me please?

P.S. when I press ctrl alt f12 I can see strings of text all with segfault at358 ....... error 4 in libmysqlclient_r.so15.0.0

Well since I didn't have a working system anyway and I had tried several re -installs at this point anyway I thought it would do no harm to give 1004 a go.

And the MD built with no errors first time, no mods needs straight out of the box.

Great work on 1004 so far guys.

So Thats an Asus B202 built as media director under 1004 with no problems (so far)
I have only tried Ui1 so far, resolution set to 1080p.  Some HD media is a bit jumpy, but I think thats a limitation of the B202 hardware.
