  1. Ok, I think I have figured out the MAIN part and can now see the server and play music from it!! Lots more reading, lots more digging and finally found what I was looking for when I read the urpmi distribution note for the 30th time... avahi.. Looks like all I had to do was create a service file to let it know to broadcast. Does an admin want to mark this as solved? One comment line about configuring avahi in the distribution would be of great help, or the distribution having the service file.. <?xml version="1.0" standalone='no'?> <!DOCTYPE service-group SYSTEM "avahi-service.dtd"> <service-group> <name replace-wildcards="yes">%h</name> <service> <type>_daap._tcp</type> <port>3689</port> </service> </service-group>
  2. I installed the application from MCC and it appeard to install fine and I am able to start it. Everything actually looks pretty good except the main thing... I can't seem to see it from anything :) I am able to access the web page from anywhere on the network in the house. I have tried to see the server with Amarok running on the same machine, iTunes on windows boxes in the house and Winamp with DAAP plugin on windows boxes, nothing wants to see it. the avahi-daemon appears to be running and on boot it looks like everything registers (well, nothing fails, but I don't now what I should see) Log file from a start as root: 2009-12-29 13:45:11 (b739c6c0): Firefly Version svn-1696: Starting with debuglevel 5 2009-12-29 13:45:11 (b739c6c0): Loaded plugin /usr/lib/mt-daapd/plugins/rsp.so (rsp/svn-1696) 2009-12-29 13:45:11 (b739c6c0): Loaded plugin /usr/lib/mt-daapd/plugins/ssc-script.so (ssc-script/svn-1696) 2009-12-29 13:45:11 (b739c6c0): Loaded plugin /usr/lib/mt-daapd/plugins/out-daap.so (daap/svn-1696) 2009-12-29 13:45:11 (b739c6c0): Plugin loaded: daap/svn-1696 2009-12-29 13:45:11 (b739c6c0): Plugin loaded: ssc-script/svn-1696 2009-12-29 13:45:11 (b739c6c0): Plugin loaded: rsp/svn-1696 2009-12-29 13:45:11 (b739c6c0): Starting signal handler 2009-12-29 13:45:11 (b739c6c0): Initializing database 2009-12-29 13:45:14 (b739c6c0): Starting web server from /usr/share/mt-daapd/admin-root on port 3689 2009-12-29 13:45:14 (b739c6c0): Listening on port 3689 2009-12-29 13:45:14 (b739c6c0): Starting server thread 2009-12-29 13:45:14 (b739c6c0): Serving 6008 songs.

I don't see it in the package if I were to build from scratch either. Any help or what I should look for would be greatly appreciated!
  3. When I log in, eventually I will get a prompt that says: The only thing I have done is log into my user account. When I go to System Monitor it appears the the prompt is tied to consolehelper -g that is running as me and is linked to mdkapplet. From what I can tell this is part of the update notifier... I can understand needed the elevated privledges to run the updates but it almost appears like doing the check is even making it ask. Any and all help is appreciated.
  4. THANKS, been on most the day and no upgrade nag! Now time for the next post and the last funny thing (this has been there since before the upgrade)
  5. Finally back home after 3-4 weeks... [travis@TAS-Server ~]$ ll /var/lib/urpmi | egrep -i upgrade -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 2009-07-21 11:25 stale_upgrade_in_progress looks like this is from the FIRST failed update based on the date.
  6. I am still being told that a new Distribution is available, '2009 Spring'. I ran the line to update the repositories... Any other ideas?

It all appears to be working and I don't have the update icon yet in the task panel. Boot up now looks ok and I get nothing but [ok] next to the services that are starting. I will use it today and keep logged on to see if anything odd happens. For some reason I had two App Lanchers in the task panel, but I just removed one of them. THANKS for all the help so far!
  8. After the update the system came back up and I can log in, although I am still being told there is an update. It looked like it was using 2009.1 for the repository. I am going to reboot and then check. How do I find out if I am running the right versions? (kernel/KDE) If I run mcc from my user no matter how (local login, putty shell w/X, XDMCP) I am prompted for the password. If I su - first then I am not prompted, how it should be.
  9. Thanks for the quick responses.. Thankfully I can still get putty to connect from upstairs (this just runs as my apache/file/proxy server in the basement). It is running the update... on 859 of 1395,thanks again, I will report success or failure when complete.
  10. If I am at the boot screen and I switch to ICE, I can login and get a "start menu". I however can not load any of the k tools (konsole/mcc). I just tried to putty/Xming in from windows and I can get the console and services are all running. when I try to launch mcc, I get. [travis@TAS-Server conf]$ mcc Can't load '/usr/lib/libDrakX/auto/c/stuff/stuff.so' for module c::stuff: /usr/lib/libpci.so.3: version `LIBPCI_3.1' not found (required by /usr/lib/libldetect.so.0.8) at /usr/lib/perl5/5.10.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/DynaLoader.pm line 203. at /usr/lib/libDrakX/c.pm line 5 Compilation failed in require at /usr/lib/libDrakX/c.pm line 5.

Wow, what a mess....
  11. I have been a Mandriva user for about 6 years and it has been great. This is the first issue that I am really lost on. I am a low level newbie.. hey, when something works I don't have to dig into it, until now. Yesterday I was XDM'd into the system and it said there was an update. I hit the update and it said it could not complete due to a missing dependancy. I 'aborted' and then went to add the dependency. I don't remember exactly, but it was libkde...4.2.4 or something. Started that and I got a failure. Now I can not launch KDE. All I get is: "Could not start kdeinit4. Check your installation". I went into ICE and tired to launch mmc, but it will not launch. I can open firefox and other things but am real clueless on how to fix this issue! In addtion, when I launch if I esc to see the process it looks like it I am now getting a failure on the Nvidia load. I don't know if I was getting that before or not.

  12. Well, here is what I found out so far. I created a test user and made the default group 'parents' on the linux side. When that user logs on now from windows it does pick that group. I also made the share create permissions give the group ability. I have to test that, but I don't see why that part will not work. Is this then the correct way to handle this?
  13. My samba stuff has been up and running for a long time, and I have lived with this issue but what to fix it... Machine1: user-Amy ; group-Amy Machine2: user-Travis ; group-Travis So, when my wife writes to the samba shares on the Linux box from WinXP, it assignes the group to her and I can see the files, but I can't change anything and vice-versa. I have a group 'Parents' on the Linux box that we both belong to and I would like when we write to the Samba shares from Windows that it use this group. I have done some searches and I must be using the wrong key words as I can't find where I would change the Samba user/group assignment. And maybe it is just a Linux side change where I remove that group and only assign us to the parents group.
  14. What am I missing?? So on Sunday I figured I would tackle reading the LVM 2 FAQ and see what I could get done. Well first I found that the LVM2 and DMSETUP modules were in the RPM setup so I installed thoses. After installing, everything went smooth. I haven't used dmsetup for anything, and after the lvm2 install the /dev/mapper directory was already created. I could also use all the tools... So. 1. I formatted my 2 disks as ext3 with DiskDrake 2. did pvcreate on both (/dev/hdc1 and /dev/hdd1) 3. did vgreate including both above 4. lvcreate -l 19082 myvg -n mylv 5. vgchange -a y myvg after this it told me that 1 logical volume in 'myvg' now active So things were looking promising... But now, how do I mount it! mount /dev/myvg/mylv /data2 => you must specify the filesystem type mount -t ext3 /dev/myvg/mylv /data2 => wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/... dmesg | tail => VFS: can't find ext3 filesystem on dev dm-0 Any help?? Seems so close. pvdisplay, and lvdisplay all look good. The directory properties for /dev/myvg are different than others, that is the only thing I see right off, but then again, I am now lost!
  15. hdc: Maxtor 6L040L2 hdd: Maxtor 6L040J2 close to being the same. From stuff I read it sounded like LVM was there during the initial install (since maybe version 9.2). What, if I didn't do it then, I screwed myself?
