Installation

Core

  • Stop UpdateMedia from mangling my id3 tags, this causes updatemedia to import data but not update the file's id3tags.
echo SyncId3Files=false >> /etc/UpdateMedia.conf
  • Add the following to /etc/pluto/xine.conf to enable 5.1 PCM over hdmi (and therefor multichannel AAC).
audio.device.alsa_pcm_device:plughw:1,3
audio.device.alsa_front_device:plughw:1,3
audio.device.alsa_default_device:plughw:1,3
audio.device.alsa_surround40_device:plughw:1,3
audio.device.alsa_surround51_device:plughw:1,3
audio.output.speaker_arrangement:Pass Through
audio.device.alsa_passthrough_device:plughw:1,3
  • Configure the D-Link DWA-552 as an Access Point (if desired)
  • Turn devices on/plug-in one by one

TODO

  • ability to set values from events?
  • sqlCVS asynchronous commits, PK/FK misalignment
  • create BL_SameEntArea message broadcast level for proper CMD_Set_Screen_Type_Cat behaviour?

Useful Commands / Processes

Hide the cursor in orbiter

touch /etc/pluto/orbiter.disable.mouse

Re-initialize the Media Database

(From forum post http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=6408.msg70571#msg70571)

  • Disable the UpdateMedia daemon
# /usr/pluto/bin/UpdateMediaDaemonControl.sh –disable
  • Login to mysql and remove the database
# mysql -uroot
# drop database pluto_media;
# quit
  • Re-initialize the media database
# cp /usr/pluto/database/media.sqlcvs .
# /usr/pluto/bin/sqlCVS -D pluto_media -r media import
  • Re-start the UpdateMedia daemon
# /usr/pluto/bin/UpdateMediaDaemonControl.sh –enable

Set Root password on MD

Get superuser privs and enter your password:

$ sudo su -

chroot to the MDs environment (XX is the MD#), run passwd and enter your desired root password for this MD.

# chroot /usr/pluto/diskless/XX/
# passwd

You can now ssh, or login, to the MD as root.
