Yes, do it and please tell us how it`s going!Boomer wrote:Thomas,
This is great news!! Thank you for working so hard for everyone's benefit. Can't wait to try the new build!!
The routine is completely renewed and I tested it! It should work! Everything will be mounted to /mnt now. E.g if you like to mount a Samba share, it will be mounted to /mnt/samba. Tell me if you have trouble!castalla wrote:Before trying this version, can you confirm that the music library setup works correctly?
(I don't have a spare card to try it out - and because it's another public holiday here - again - there's nowhere open to buy a new card!).
In the previous version I had to manually mount a cifs server to \music as the setup routine wouldn't correctly reference the external device.
Is it possible, that you ran out of space? If you install LMS you need some space. If you did not expand the RootFS maybe you ran out of space! You should also check your Internet connection!castalla wrote:Forget the above! I've decided to try out the version 5 .... installing LMS at the moment .... BUT
How long is it supposed to take? It has been at:
Unpacking libavcodec53:armhf .... for more than 10 minutes
I've no idea whether it's stuck or is actually doing anything!
Looks like I'll have to do the whole install from fresh.
I think you choose the wrong option! Is it possible, that you choose to install the Samba server and not to configure the media library? Best we would discuss this on Skype and tell the result here for everyone else!castalla wrote:Okay - moved on a bit.
This time I did the network setup for LAN before I did anything else.
However, the media library failed totally - I chose Samba and it just said it was set-up - didn't ask for any address.
I need to add the cifs routine to fstab to mount the external device.
I'll try that now and get back with more detail.
I checked again and I think you made a mistake. Or my script works not like yours! I made this:castalla wrote:Sorry but no .... I chose the media library option and the samba sub-section.
Nothing was written to fstab.
Again, sorry - don't use Skype!
Thanks for the input! I'll think about changing this, I thought it was clear, but if you fail, maybe others will fail as well. The first problems can't have something to do with DHCP. There is no need for static IP, DHCP is fine! The script will give you a message, if the LMS sources can't be downloaded from the internet. I've changed all my scripts to make an error handling if an Internet connection is needed and it's missing. So the first fault must be something else!castalla wrote:You're probably correct!
But, the need to press SPACE is NOT clear.
Also there's no way to backout except by Ctrl C if the user doesn't want to continue.
In any event, I just edited the fstab file myself.
Overall, as a basic user experience in installing, I'd give the routine 3 out of 5.
I suspect the first problem I had was caused ny not setting up the LAN - you might emphasise this as a necessary step before the user continues.
LMS is working again - I'll test it over the next few days and give feedback as necessary.
Thanks for your work and for the help!
Leave Username and Password blank. Be sure you activate the Guest Account to use this option. I'll give a hint in the new script, coming with a first update!castalla wrote:By the way, how does your script handle a guest user of the samba server?
No username or password ...
That all has been tested! And I just did it again! It works! A arm182_start.elf does not exist. Are you sure your SD-Card does not have a problem? I just checked on two RPi's and it works fine! The only thing the backup-script does is packing some files from SD-Card to SD-Card. Did you choose overclocking on the RPi? Maybe you have an power issue?castalla wrote:Another problem?
I'm trying the firmware backup routine - this has started ... and again seems stuck on /boot/arm182_start.elf
I just unplugged the Pi power to stop.
Looks like another install is necessary!
You can do this, but I would not!castalla wrote:No overclocking.
Never had previous power issues.
Can I just run rpi-update from the command line? That's what I did with the previous version.
Than type in "guest" in username, where is the problem?castalla wrote:Hmmm .... sorry, but
The samba server music library setup - blank username and password - didn't work for my server which explicitly requires 'guest' in the mount command..
This is probably because it's a server run on my router and evidently has a default configuration which can't be modified.
Guess once I get it all up and running again, I'm not messing with any other features!
