ETP. You are right. the logical place for the resize flag is in the folder where that savefile is. It could be an improvement to suggest to Barry K for woof implementation. I need to check your finding also.

Tman. I have tried to find some documentation how gnome-mplayer - mplayer config files ( there is 3 of them) really interact but without success so far. Trial and error it is for now.....

Yes, I've been doing it by trial and error as well. I was puzzled why your gnome-mplayer works from the start without any initial gnome-player.conf file. Eventually, I figured out that it was using the configuration that you set for mplayer, which was vo=xv,x11,sdl. I have merged your mplayer.conf file with my own, to get what is the best settings I have so far.
Code:

#
# MPlayer configuration file
#
# Configuration files are read system-wide from /etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf
# and per user from ~/.mplayer/config, where per-user settings override
# system-wide settings, all of which are overrriden by the command line.
#
# The configuration file settings are the same as the command line
# options without the preceding '-'.
#
# See the CONFIGURATION FILES section in the man page
# for a detailed description of the syntax.

Hi pemasu,
DVB RTL2832U testing

After reading your instructions properly the Sandberg stick now gets recognized Smile
However still a few bugs I think.

Under puppy 528 kk2.6.33.2 vlc opens with a couple of errors then the picture stays locked in.

Under puppy squeeze k3.6.2.1 vlc opens with a continuous stream of errors. If a picture comes up it then freezes or you just get a black screen. It acts like its got a very weak signal.

Booted between the the two puppies a few times to check and its always the same.

errors example
Code:

The DVB Compro U650F stick still seems to have the same problem. Which I find strange because they seem to have the same chip set.

thanks

DC

DC. Okay...partial success. Now comes the difficult part. Libdvbpsi stream parsing has problems. It can be from poor antenna signal, poorly working libdvbpsi or it can come from the poorly working vlc version or my vlc compile might not be 100 % succesful. So....difficult to narrow the problem. There is only one version of libdvbpsi6 in squeeze repo, it would need recompile and who knows how many other libs are dependent of the used libdvbpsi version, and how many other libs should be recompiled, then compile newest vlc and cross the fingers.

I am not delighted of that atm. I will upgrade vlc at some time, then I think about upgrading the under the hood libs, somewhat.

The developer Palosaari posted, that if the chip has been recognized, then the problem should not come from the kernel drivers, he hasnt got bug reports about poor stream parsing.

VLC media player 1.0.6 Goldeneye

DVB-T is a subject close to my heart & I note that you make reference to VLC media player 1.0.6 Goldeneye (the old Lucid pet) with both 528 and puppy squeeze k3.6.2.1.

AFAIK prior to June 2012 that pet was the only version to have been properly compiled for DVB-T support. In June however pemasu produced the following which is compiled correctly:

http://smokey01.com/pemasu/pet_packages-exprimo/vlc-2.0.1-i686.pet

May I suggest that you give it a try with squeeze? Whilst I still use VLC, in Linux for DVB-T purposes I now prefer smplayer.

You may also wish to try that & I would recommend another of pemasu’s pets:

http://smokey01.com/pemasu/pet_packages-exprimo/smplayer-0.8.1.pet

Hi pemasu and ETP,

Yes I'll try the later version of VLC tonight when I get home.


Two points though;
The same version of VLC is used in both puppies, should that exclude VLC from the problem?
Aerial signal and all hardware are the same for both, so no weak signal.

Lack of knowledge precludes me from commenting on the libraries Confused

thanks

DC

Yeah. Testing with Smplayer would eliminate the vlc produced errors.
How I created the channels.conf for Mplayer format:

First I downloaded w_scan: http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/w/w-scan/w-scan_20120605-1_i386.deb
w_scan because it does not need ANY initial_file to be used as base for tuning.

Next: I checked this page for right parameters: http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/W_scan
dvb-t and dvb-c needs different parameters.

For my dvb-c and Finland location it was:
w_scan -fc -c FI -M > /root/.mplayer/channels.conf

Hack your working command depending on are you using dvb-t: -ft and what country you are searching for streams: two big letter alphabets, for me FI

-M means mplayer understandable channels.conf format, important.
Next important thing is to output it to the folder, from where Mplayer and Smplayer finds it: > /root/.mplayer/channels.conf
And....if you have tried non-working channels.conf with Smplayer, remove /root/.config/smplayer folder, because those failed efforts inhibit the usage of working channels.conf, really brilliant I think.

Now launch Smplayer, choose TV and voila your channels.conf channels are there to choose, watch and enjoy.

Hi pemasu, unfortunately I failed to install it.
No /proc/eee directory gets created and there's nothing to load through # modprobe eee.
However, # modinfo can see it:

As a postscript to this exercise, it's worth explaining the final outcome:

- Celeron-based Eee models, except the 701SD, use the third party eee kernel module to control CPU speed and fan speed.

- Atom-based Eee models plus the 701SD use the standard eeepc-laptop kernel module to control the CPU speed.
The eee module is still used to control fan speed ... but only because Dougal's fan control daemon was written that way.
Since fan control on Atom-based models doesn't actually require the eee module, it would be an elegant solution to rewrite Dougal's fan control daemon in this situation to use these mechanisms (enabled by the eeepc-laptop module) instead:
to set manual fan speed control
Code:
echo 1 > /sys/class/hwmon/hwmon0/pwm1_enable

to adjust fan speed control
Code:
echo x > /sys/class/hwmon/hwmon0/pwm1

where x is a value between 0 (fan off) to 255 (full speed, 12V).
to read CPU temperature
Code:
cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/TZ00/temperature

I guess I could have a go at that, looking for a little side project so I will start work soon.

So....I am clueless....

DC. I am afraid you have screwed a little the setup with using Lucid VLC which has qt libs included.

I suggest starting from fresh install, installing that new dvb-update ( first remove that previous media folder ),
then install these:
http://www.smokey01.com/pemasu/pet_packages-exprimo/qt-4.8.0-basic-with-qtwebkit-dpup.pet
http://www.smokey01.com/pemasu/pet_packages-exprimo/vlc-2.0.1-dpup.pet
http://www.smokey01.com/pemasu/pet_packages-exprimo/vlc-2.0.1-deps-dpup.pet
http://www.smokey01.com/pemasu/pet_packages-exprimo/smplayer-0.8.1.pet

Now you have dpup compliant setup of the applications and libs without interfering lucid stuff.
You can also use PPM which checks the dependencies...when you click check dependencies and it loads the needed depencies which are those above pets.

DC. If you mean that the dvb-tuner founds the stream, but freezes, then it sounds like the drivers are not working correctly and there is not much to do for it.

pemasu, I managed to get it loaded manually, but only once. Did first mod prob eeepc_laptop, and then modprob eee. It loaded, responded to commands, the folder was there. Rebooting and it's gone and modprob doesn't help anymore.

Anikin. Ok, something weird about eee.ko module happens. Not sure though what is the reason. For me it behaves nicely, though I dont try to use it. I fear what happens if it start to work, lol.
But I can modprobe and remove and modprobe it repeatitly.
Anyway....3.4.2 kernel version is the main dpup now...this is more or less experimental...where strange things happen...
