Lots of devices never start
« on: November 29, 2007, 06:33:50 pm »

I have a number of devices which never start on my system. At first it was the disk drive on my core, then a load of devices on my diskless MD which I then had to rebuild. See:

http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=3299.msg16724#msg16724

Now I have lost the screen saver, mythtv player and xine player on my core. I can start these manually from the command line and have no problems, e.g:

/usr/pluto/bin/Photo_Screen_Saver -d 28

Works fine. But I cannot see any fail logs or Spawn logs. The app server has no mention of them.

Is anyone else seeing this? It seems very odd that only I am experiencing it.

I really hope the answer isn't going to be that I have to flatten and reinstall the system.

Thanks,

Chris

Just noticed something about these failing devices. It looks like they are all children of the orbiter device.

I'm getting somewhere I think. Here's the log of the orbiter on my working (recently rebuilt) MD:

And here is the log of the orbiter on my broken core:

I am using an old ATI card (7000) with the open source driver.
