@ can8v

I'm glad it's all working for you Wink

I've uploaded a talking clock I've been working on, it might be handy for those with a vision impairment, it's activated using the mouse, either the screen edges or corners can be set to trigger it, sneeky_talking_clock-1.0.pet, search for sneeky in the PPM.

Let me know if anything is wrong with it, though it should be fine, I've tested it for some time now with no ill effects.

PostPosted: Sat 04 Jan 2014, 00:41    Post subject: miniDLNA  

Does anyone have miniDLNA working in Carolina 1.1? It installed without a hitch and I edited the minidlna.conf file (same as I did in Saluki 023) just the media location, as follows.
Code:
media_dir=/mnt/sda1/Videos

Then I started the server by simply typing "minidlna" into the terminal. This is all that was required on my last puppy.. MiniDLNA made no complaints at all and Carolina already has the libav* libraries that are required by this gem of an application, nevertheless "Puppy DLNA Server" is not showing up on any of my devices (ie. Playstation 3, Smart Blueray Player, Smart TV, Android Tablets and Phones, etc.)
Now that I have XMBC, Handbrake, Thoggen, Simple File Sharing, Clementine, SMPlayer, and VLC all working, MiniDLNA and MakeMKV are my final steps to finishing my new media server. I use this old laptop to rip my DVDs and Bluerays, add them to my server and manage the content, Serve that content to my family of seven using a wide range of devices on several different operating systems. This may be the first time I manage to get everything working without any annoying workarounds like booting into one operating system for ripping encrypted DVDs, another for regular DVDs another to serve the content, etc.

@ can8v

I installed miniDLNA and configured /etc/minidlna.conf with the path to the video files I have, it works ok using windows media player on Windows 7, also works on my Android tablet.

I made some changes to Compression 1.8
so it will run on Carolina and many other Puppies.
It has 7z library inside as well as SFR's UExtract 2.7.

It's a complete package to compress and decompress.

PostPosted: Sun 05 Jan 2014, 08:41    Post subject: XBMC update for Carolina?  

In my experience Carolina is the best x86 linux distro for running the xbmc media center. But the 11 (eden) version is outdated and installing the 12.3 frodo version as .deb doesn't work in Carolina.

Many xbmc repos no longer work in version 11, so is it possible to make a 12.3 version, or give instructions on how to install the .deb version?

My attempt at compiling Wine 1.7.10 in Carolina 1.1 PAE (very basic, no menu entries, command to run windows apps is /usr/local/bin/wine)

nmlkngdm, first: thanks!

but... I am not sure if running xbmc via wine is exactly the same thing as running the linux version of it. Often it is faster/lighter to run the version of a program which is designed for linux right?. And with high definition movies it is especially important to use the lightest software you can find.

Nevertheless, I am certainly going to try the wine route for xbmc in Carolina!

@Geoffry
Thanks for looking into MiniDLNA for me. I have spent several hours on this issue with no resolution as of yet. I verified the required libraries from Shinobar's original thread were present and tried installing each of the various version that were available from PPM and this forum. No luck. I tried installing the various versions after booting pfix=ram, to eliminate anything I may have messed up since creating my pup_save file; still I had no luck. It doesn't matter what version I install or if I install it on a prestine Carolina or my modified version of Carolina, the bottom line is the same. The install goes off without a hitch. The Server starts without complaint, but none of the 14 DLNA clients that I have access to can see the MiniDLNA server when it is running in Carolina. I tested further by opening a browser and navigating to 192.168.1.71:8200 (the IP and port for MiniDLNA), which produced a 404 error (see screenshot). I get the same error if regardless if I use a browser on the network or even on the server machine running Carolina. If I reboot this same computer using Saluki 023 and start the MiniDLNA server, all of the devices can see the DLNA server and access the video files. Further I can open a browser on the host or any of the computers/tablets/phones on the network and navigate to 192.168.1.71:8200 and I get the message from MiniDLNA with statistics regarding the content in the media directory (see other screenshot).
I can only speculate two issues at this point. Potentially I need to install another package to make this work that I am unaware of (Something that either came with Saluki or I had already installed it for some other reason) or there is a flaw in the iso image of Carolina that i downloaded, despite the MD5 checking out (is this possible)?

I am also running XBMC 11 in Carolina, I was pleased that it worked without issue, but was unable to figure out if the UPnP features were removed or if they just don't work or if I was just too lame to figure it out. I am pretty happy with version 11, but of course I don't know what I am missing in version 12.3. Are there significant improvements that I should be aware of? I would be very interested to find out if you get this working natively or not.

I tried the xbmc windows version with wine, it seems to run smoothly but there is no network access, I did manage to get it to play files on the lan by creating a symlink to /root/.gvfs and place that where you like, but rename the link so as it's visible,then use Thunar to browse the network, the files will be list in the link, not the best option as there is still no internet connection.

I still use xbmc 11, it does all that I need, when time permit's I'll have a go at compiling the latest xbmc, it looks complex though, Jemimah compiled the last version, so when she left so did the developments.

@ can8v

I see you have MiniDLNA server control in /etc/init.d, could you please post your script, the one I found online didn't work, I'll look at making a configuration GUI for MiniDLNA that should make things a little easier for noobs.

I still have it working ok, it's very strange that you are having so much trouble with it, then I have loads of pets installed so as you say it maybe missing something, I'll have to try from a fresh install, can anyone else confirm whether or not it has a problem.
