Media Network Demo: Black Sand and Netbook


Darren Hart <dvhart@...>
 

I build mediatomb and rygel live atom-pc images from today's poky/master + meta-demo/master. I booted mediatomb on the BlackSand and rygel on the netbook. I had to manually start the rygel renderer on the netbook. I didn't see gupnp-av-cp on the rygel image as I expected and the gupnp-universal-cp command failed to start on the netbook (via a sato terminal) complaining about missing icons. If I tried to stabrt this over an ssh - connection, the gupnp-universal-cp started fine (strange).

I could run gupnp-av-cp from my laptop (Ubuntu 10.10) and play music
from mediatomb on the rygel renderer. (YAY)

What I'd like to see is for gupnp-av-cp to start automatically after the
sato desktop loads on each renderer. This would make each renderer a
standalone player.

So, it's functional (awesome!) and I see these ARs as pending for the demo images:

[ ] add gupnp-av-cp to the rygel image
[ ] start rygel on boot (after networking)
[ ] start gupnp-av-cp after the sato desktop loads on the rygel image
[ ] setup networking on each of the non-nas images to dhcp on eth0

With the above, each image should boot to a functional state with no
manual interference required.

How much of the above is already planned and how much do we need to get
an owner for?

I think this is already done - I have it on my image and it works for
me.

[ ] start rygel on boot (after networking)

eth0 on the rygel image seems to come up ok, it's just the mediatomb
image that doesn't afaics. I'll probably look into this tonight.

I also added a small change in tom/demo that allows the mediatomb image
to do nfs. After doing that, I was able to mount an nfs share from my
laptop on the Black Sand, and have mediatomb add all the media there.

Hmm, I've commits to fix both of those issues in meta-demo master since
at least yesterday morning.b

Cool!

Already done

I'll take this AR
[ ] start gupnp-av-cp after the sato desktop loads on the rygel image
I'll take this AR too
[ ] setup networking on each of the non-nas images to dhcp on eth0

I'll handle the Rygel and gupnp-av-cp ones, they where already on my
list :-)

Cheers,

I think my build just has some stale data that the various cleans haven't cleared. I'm going to try some clean builds today.
