I have been playing around with Pluto, then linuxmce 7.04 for about a year now, mainly using the core as a DHCP server/gateway/proxy/content filter for my home network. Well now I have a new house that I have wired for whole house audio, bought a new MC200 (mini-itx via mobo). I have gotten it to network boot, updated the openchrome drivers, gone through the av wizard (the test audio works) and everything seems to be fine. The problem I am having is when I go into the orbiter, select audio, select an mp3 (all living on the core in /home/public/data/audio), hit play, it just returns to the select screen. I have tried playing the mp3s from command line like mplayer xxxxxx.mp3 and it plays fine. Is there a log somewhere I can look at to see what is happening? Or is there any way to troubleshoot this?
I did make a change to the /etc/fstab. I changed the mount option for /home from cifs to NFS. I did that because (and I had this problem with Pluto too) when mounted using cifs, I only see 1 directory in /home/public/data/audio its something like _235xxxx and it holds .id3 files and I can't see any other folders. If I use NFS it sees everything. Could it be a database issue?
Any and all suggestions are appreciated.
Did you install LAME on your MD? Just ssh to it and install lame;
sudo apt-get install lame <return>
Now back in the Orbiter and try playing mp3's again.
