Who am I
I'm a long time IT guy from Sweden, started programming at age 9, first Unix exposure in -93 (NetBSD) and soon after also some Linux. I've done loads of system programming on IBM mainframe, S/38, AS/400, MS-DOS, Windows C++/DCOM, heavy duty Java J2EE on Linux, you name it. Most of it having to do with communications and middleware; actually I've developed something similar to DCE in the 80s and 90s... ;-) Today I'm an Enterprise Architect but try to get some dirt under the nails by digging in the dirt, I mean Linux.

No mobile orbiter yet. Waiting for the iPhone SW, or I'll get myself a used Nokia.
Not connected to LinuxMCE yet, trying to do something useful with Nexa. When there's time I'll invest in a TellStick and integrate it into LMCE.
One Squeezebox 3, not connected to LMCE yet; will have to rebuild my WLANs first (The son's cousin had an accident with the SB3 rendering the screen blank so I cannot reconfigure...)
Some notes on setting up 8.10 B2 (daily build 22828)
Nothing special, followed the standard procedure.
Firmware file for DBV-T missing, solved with:
cd /usr/pluto/diskless/39/lib/firmware/ sudo cp /lib/firmware/dvb-usb-dib0700-1.20.fw /usr/pluto/diskless/39/lib/firmware/ . or: cd /usr/pluto/diskless/39/lib/firmware/ sudo wget http://www.linuxtv.org/downloads/firmware/dvb-usb-dib0700-1.20.fw
DVD not playable, even though the SW was installed at the Core
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2 w32codecs
Problems to solve:
- Keyboard with US layout, change to Swedish
- Remote not working due to IR receiver still not in place. Trying to use /dev/input/event in lirc, not OK yet
Two networks, with wired and wireless in both.
- Outer network 192.168.1.x - including VOIP gateway, to be replaced by Asterix when I get some time
- Inner network 192.168.80.x
