LinuxMCE on raspberry pi
« on: January 27, 2013, 12:29:31 pm »
Hi all,

I'm new to all this and am looking for a complete integrated remote/home automation system.
For example!
Can I display a web address within the UI on say an iPhone? (for example streaming from an ip camera , or perhaps a realtime graph of temperature).
I wish to use the raspberry pi for this ; how do I install/run on this platform (noob for sure!  ;D)

Any help/comments/advice welcome!

Thanks

Nothing of what you want to do is currently available from within the LinuxMCE universe. Might change, but at this point in time it is not.

Thanks!
Perhaps I should lower my expectations!  ;D
I know it can function as a squeezebox and therefore that is effectively integrated within the ui (orbiter or media).
How does camera streaming work on an orbiter? - is it just a web console effectively???

thanks!

wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/RaspberryPi has some attempts to get LinuxMCE running on RPi.

Can someone elaborate on why it is not possible to run LinuxMCE on RPi?
Seems like it should.

I am mostly interested in the Home Automation controller part and less on the multi-media HTPC stuff.

For some more information check this out: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Porting_Raspbian

Currently I have a raspberry pi running as a MD (no AV yet).  DCERouter *could* run on a pi, it would not handle media and orbiter regens would be painfully slow.  I have not built any of the database requirements to run a pi as a core, nor have I worked out an installation path for a core on rpi as I do not see it as necessary.  LMCE needs a beefier system as a core to properly operate.

Or, as hari says, look into agocontrol which is primarily home automation and is intended to run on lower power devices like the Raspberry Pi.

Hi,

I successfully shot a Parallella Board on Kickstarter last year. Now I am awaiting this "Supercomputer on a creditcard" to be delivered.
Within this year they want to get the Board with 90 GFLOPs ready to ship for about $299.
This would be enough power for a whole LinuxMCE - Center on a creditcard-size - device.
Could this bright future be reason to keep on porting LinMCE to ARM ?

I'm attempting to follow

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/RaspberryPi

I have tried both using the sd image and formatting the card fat32 myself and copying the files

both result in an unbootable Pi

I am running using my TV as a monitor with HDMI cable, and some of the output gets chopped off by the screen so I can not see it all, here is the best I can give ...

Timeout waiting for response
2835: Could not set USB power state
:    Net Initialization Skipped
ethernet found.
 any key to stop autoboot:  0
Unrecognized Filesystem type **

Yeah.  Something is broken in u-boot.  I'll be moving to noobs for bit control and qorbiter as the default.  Golgo and I are slowly hashing out the details.  J.

I also tried using the instructions here:

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Porting_Raspbian

Raspian boots up fine, but nothing special happens, it does dhcp and get the expected IP for the RPi MD I created, but it doesn't netboot in any way and after it gets on the network it just drops me in a local shell....

That is all that will happen from the original instructions.  If you try that on 1204 it should boot into orbiter.  If not try running /etc/init.d/linuxmce start.  J.

I am running 1204 right now, is there any working recipe to get a moonpi running on it?  It's pretty much my only option for MD right now...

At this point I will be concentrating on the qorbiter based MD.  Not sure the specific timeline, but soon hopefully.  J.
