I think so, I've got lms on my pc and v0.8 can see it but that's as far as it goes before hanging.

I know iLLiac4 has tweaked xsqueeze in v0.9 but as I've added some repos, and the os is running well, I'm not rushing to upgrade yet unless xsqueeze is working so would be grateful to hear from others who may be using v0.9. ;)

Well I have none to test. But if it does not show it is linux drivers issue. You can login into terminal and see if it is found by os.

Code: Select all

Today I have tested the image v0.9 and it is working ok. I hope i will find error for not connecting to wifi after install without LAN (first time connect).
I'm also waiting fo response from user 'andyf' if dynamic DNS configuration solved the problem????

Also about XSqueeze. Probably you will be able to get touch screen enabled player as developer for XSqueeze will try to add them. You can help to test http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=122199&page=42

Sorry, didnt realise you were waiting for me. I solved my DNS problems by manually editing resolv.conf to point to the correct place for my setup. Will take a look later to see if you suggestion would work too - I still need it to point to a server on my internal LAN, it's the same server that is running DHCP - I don't do it on my router.

Did we figure out why xbmc doesn't auto run on my setup, or this how it is for everybody?

Andy.

I think my suggestion should work. DHCP pushes also DNS info so it should work. But if you can test it it would be even better so I can integrate dynamic DNS into next release.

I don not know why on your system doe not start XBMC automatically. I have checked image v0.9 and it is ok.
How does your /etc/rc.local looks like?

OK, I can confirm that the DNS now works, and resolv.conf is created correctly, to pick up the DNS server dynamically. Thanks for that.

Here's my rc.local. Not touched it myself at all.


#!/bin/sh -e
#
# rc.local
#
# This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel.
# Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other
# value on error.
#
# In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution
# bits.
#
# By default this script does nothing.

if [ ! -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key ]; then
dpkg-reconfigure openssh-server
fi
ifconfig wlan0 up
dhclient eth0 > /dev/null 2>&1 &
xinit /usr/bin/xbmc --standalone
clear
exit 0


Just realised, if I try to run rc.local, I get this error:

wlan0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device

I don't have a wifi card installed in this joggler. Maybe that is the problem?

This is the problem:)

Try to make your local.rc look like:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh -e
#
# rc.local
#
# This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel.
# Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other
# value on error.
#
# In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution
# bits.
#
# By default this script does nothing.

if [ ! -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key ]; then
dpkg-reconfigure openssh-server
fi
# ifconfig wlan0 up
dhclient eth0 > /dev/null 2>&1 &
xinit /usr/bin/xbmc --standalone
clear
exit 0
or:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh -e
#
# rc.local
#
# This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel.
# Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other
# value on error.
#
# In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution
# bits.
#
# By default this script does nothing.

if [ ! -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key ]; then
dpkg-reconfigure openssh-server
fi
ifconfig wlan0 up > /dev/null 2>&1 &
dhclient eth0 > /dev/null 2>&1 &
xinit /usr/bin/xbmc --standalone
clear
exit 0

I'd prefer that you try the second option first so I can implement it if it will work.

Just to confirm I get the same behaviour as hawsey and ilovemyjoggler, ie once connected with an ethernet cable the wifi then works perfectly.

With regards XSqueeze I didn't realize it was so clumsy to control, I would go back to investigating getting SqueezePlay launched as it is much easier to use on the Joggler.

All working very nice now!

Have to say I'm really quite impressed with the stability of this on my joggler. For some bizarre reason I've had quite a bit of bother with other systems on mine (normally crash & burn within 2-3 days hence needing backups of usbs!) but for me this has been brilliant so far. Thanks iLLiac4!

This is absolutely cwazy but I love it :-)
I have seen this bob light , ambi light thing working on 50 inch plasmas and allways thought it was cool , are you thinking of mounting the lights in a sort of frame around the joggler ?
Great stuff , keep us posted .....
Happy Joggling

Yes but you need a keyboard.

In the settings you can auto-pick the LMS that it will connect to (does that bit work for you?)

Then on the main screeen hitting I will bring up a menu where you can choose what to play.

Up/Down/Left/Right can be used to "navigate" through the menu at the very bottom of the display (albeit very clumsily)

LMS now has a built in DNLA server but XBMC doesn't seem to want to pick it up :-( which is a shame as that would be a very simple solution!!

What do you want to tell with this?
LMS now has a built in DNLA client but XBMC doesn't seem to want to pick it up :-( which is a shame as that would be a very simple solution!!

You can control Xsqueeze on XBMC from LMS if you meant that.
You have to enable in XBMC under settings/network/Allow programs on other systems to control.... and also enable other control features and then try.

I agree that player screen is unusable ATM but this will change in short ;) Other than that everything else is working (official remote from logitech on android, ipad, control joggler from web interface,...)

Will this allow me to use UPNP without setting up CIF shares? I'm just not bright enough to use VI.

Use WinSCP to connect to the Joggler then you can edit your files using its text editor with none of this :wq nonsense you get with vi!
