Users / Core install bypassing wizard
« on: April 05, 2010, 06:27:50 pm »
If the core will not be used for any viewing purposes, does there exist an undocumented way to bypass the wizards and predefine no initial options?

Anyone got a wall mountable touch screen lcd (~17") that they know works with mce?
I would imagine most anything with Linux support would be fine, but just checking.

Thanks for the confirmation.

Users / Room w/ Radio Only
« on: March 30, 2010, 07:33:50 pm »
I have several rooms in a new home that we only want to put radios, hence no tv/monitor. I intended on putting small md's in my rack and routing their line level outputs into a commercial Crown 4 ch amp.

If I intend on using a Nokia N8/900 to control just lights/radio in these rooms, am I overlooking any needed functionality not having a tv in the room?


Users / Re: Problem with video setting up new core on 810

I should have been more clear. I get through that, and stated I recall from that doc what hotkeys effect resolution.

Its the stage after that, which that docs also state, the hotkeys do not effect past this stage (see section II).


Users / Problem with video setting up new core on 810

So after going through the AV wizard (where I recall the hotkeys for toggling video resolution etc) I enter the setup section where all of a sudden the display became torn badly as if the resolution was invalid. With a iLO2 console, I verified that the display is actually corrupt, so are there any hotkeys to force the resolution at this point?

Whats the best way to restart the whole process?

This server has a wee little ATI Rage chipset (I wont actually be using it for viewing).

That's good to know, I was just about to order a set of HDMI and USB baluns today as I wanted an external usb slim drive for reading dvd's at the location.

What were some of the pro's you spoke of in the above link by alx9r where you talk about the centralized config you sometimes deploy?

Thanks for the info.

I was just mulling over the ir/usb issue now.
If I can find some that do this, I have a solution for areas where I don't want av equipment, like the kitchen/bathroom.

We are just roughing in now, so I can add anything i want.

Thanks for the info!

Users / hdmi balun's

All my speakers are in wall/ceiling and therefor I am thinking about leaving all the actual pc's for each room in the rack in the basement, and using hdmi balun's to get the video to each tv/projector. The only downside I can see is lack of a dvd tray. I can transfer remote signals via many options.

Any seasoned opinions on a setup like this?


Users / torrent for latest dvd
« on: January 06, 2010, 08:13:33 pm »
Hey guys,
The torrent filename doesn't match the latest iso filename, before I queue it up, is it still the same?

Ok, I cut a dvd, and the same thing happened. It boots from an original dvd just fine locally so I know its my authoring that failed. How would I know if its a mkisofs or mksquashfs issue?

Your mksquashfs command is in, and it runs w/o additional commands, yet mine was ~20megs smaller? Not sure that's an issue? I also don't know at which point the unpacking completes so that if I got tossed into a bbox prompt could that happen before the unpacking?

I am hoping its just how I authored it, my mkisofs was as follows:

Code: [Select]
mkisofs -o ../LinuxMCE-DVD-DL-i386-rc2_custom.iso -b isolinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/ \
-no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -r -V "Joes LMCE-Core" -cache-inodes -J \
-joliet-long -l -iso-level 4 -relaxed-filenames -allow-lowercase -ldot .


After a long wait with the animated Kubuntu screen, I got tossed into a busybox shell? Any ideas as to what went wrong? Could that be my filesystem.squashfs?
In what script do you guys do generate that? I could yank all the source and search for it, but if you know it would save me the bandwidth:) Mine was a bit smaller and took forever to decompress before I got the prompt? Possibly that is an indication? Mounting both original and mine looks the same:/

Searching the forum suggests this could also be a driver issue? Would the unpacking of the filesystem.squashfs show an error other than tossing me into a bbox prompt if it failed?

I am running this install over iLO so the iso is mounted as a USB device AFAIK, I'll start burning a dl dvd right now...


I think have something I want to try, so looking at I can see the mkisofs command you guys are using is:

Code: [Select]
mkisofs -o "$LiveCDISO" \
-b isolinux/isolinux.bin \
-c isolinux/ \
-no-emul-boot \
-boot-load-size 4 \
-boot-info-table \
-r \
-V "Custom LMCE-Core" \
-cache-inodes \
-J \
-l \

Yet when I run this, it upper-cases and butchers the file names? I can assume that I need to further relax the restrictions, but I am curious what script actually generates the DL dvd iso? FWIW, I am working remotely authoring this disc on a CentOS 5 server using its version of mkisofs which I can't imagine is much different from the ubuntu version I assume you guys use?
