    • Marvell 800Mhz, 256MB RAM, 2x1GB LAN
  • 4x2TB SATA HDDs - RAID5
  • Debian running apt-cacher-ng.


Installation

Core

  • Disconnect the core from the internal lmce network
  • Boot the Installation DVD and choose "Install LinuxMCE", follow the instructions.
  • The onboard Realtek 8111e PCIe NIC needs updating from the manufacturer. Download, compile and install a new r8168.ko
  • The onboard VT1818 audio chip needs updated ALSA drivers, luckily these are included with LMCE already.
  • The Intel 1000CT PCIe NIC needs updating from the manufacturer. Download, compile and install a new e1000.ko
  • Install apt-cacher-ng before installing LMCE from the desktop.
wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/a/apt-cacher-ng/apt-cacher-ng_0.4-1_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i apt-cacher-ng_0.4-1_i386.deb

Update (create) /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/02proxy to point to the local apt-cacher-ng. The install scripts will alter this to "http://dcerouter:3142" when it finishes. This file is also automatically copied to MDs when they are created, which is handy. All upgrades will now be cached on the dcerouter and MDs will automatically use the cache.

echo 'Acquire::http { Proxy "http://localhost:3142"; };' | sudo tee /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/02proxy

Edit /etc/apt-cacher-ng/acng.conf and set a proxy to another apt-cacher-ng repository (my QNAP NAS), if desired.

  • Continue Installing according to the DVD installation instructions for 0810 beta2, LinuxMCE-0810_beta.
  • Install libdvdcss - This will be added to the default diskless MD image if installed on the core before running Diskless_CreateTBZ.
apt-get update
apt-get install libdvdcss2 w32codecs
  • Create the initial MD images
/usr/pluto/bin/Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh
  • Turn devices on/plug-in one by one
  1. QNAP-NAS
  2. Zotac ION - and configure the onboard wireless as an Access Point
  3. EeeBox
  4. WebDT
  5. N800
  6. TabletPC1
  7. N900
  8. HDHomerun

MDs

  • Install ms codecs
apt-get update
apt-get install w32codecs

Useful Commands / Processes

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

This will allow you to ssh to the MD as root.

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

The createbuilder.sh script

Posde shared a script in the forum to create a chroot LMCE0810 Builder from scratch. http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=3870.msg66857#msg66857

sqlCvS webadmin use

http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=5758.msg33952#msg33952

Outstanding Issues I need to investigate as I have time

  • Proper (complete) device templates for TV, Receiver, PS3, Wii, 9242 PVR
  • UI2 on the EeeBox is elusive**Current driver causes segfault/cifs-vfs errors.
    • Updated xorg(1.6) and intel driver work great but mouse and keyboard events are not picked up by orbiter.
    • This has been pushed back to 1004 release, UI2 should work ootb with 1004 intel video drivers.
