AWESOME!! Works like a champ. Now, thanks to you, I am one step closer to replacing our windoze players with something that just works all the time, instead of nightly reboots. Need to find a way to get News, Weather, Sports, and Stocks (dynamically based on the client) and I will be golden. On a no...

they would be static, cause I think regardless if we add swf files, the XML file is the control file and that would change, so 'playlist.xml' is the name of the file.

my perl is not good enough to translate your logic into a working example. If you have time, could you help? :oops:

not to sound too much like a n00b, but one question, everytime rsync runs, it updates the timestamp when I do a 'ls -al' I thought rsync preserved permissions, times, etc by default... my rsync command in cron is: rsync -avz -e "ssh -i /home/username/rsa_key" user@10.10.10.10:/home/user/source/ /hom...

I did find this: http://www.mozilla.org/unix/remote.html which will work if I type: ~]$ firefox -remote "openURL(http://localhost/Player.html)" this restarts the browser. Perfect! Now do you know how I could check for updated files? something like if (files updated) { firefox -remote "openURL(http:/...

Correct, if there is new files, then a full refresh would be acceptable. For a quick run down, the Player.html file has an embedded 'player.swf' that it plays. This file has Playlist.xml as the source of files to play. Ex: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> <movies> <movie url="show1.swf" /...

the META refresh will refresh and start the playlist over from the begining, so this is what I initially thought but it will not work. Different shows could have different lengths for each show, so it would be hard to find out what varible to put in the meta refresh. Also, I don't want it to refresh...

Thanks!! those worked perfectly. The Devils Pie is something that may come in handy when we start using it with multiple LCDs or Plasmas. Now comes another question. I am loading a php page that reads from an XML file that points to the SWF files to play. I have all of these playing locally on apach...

controlling windows

Don't let the topic fool you! My question is where can I control where certain windows, or applications start up. For example, for those that remember, I have been working on a full linux digital signage player. Nothing new here, but on my test laptop, I have a "Virtual" statement in my xorg.conf fi...

what kind of cell phone? Most will use the data feature of the cell phones as a modem and you can use that? The ones I know work are the PDA type phones but they have to have a data plan. My old AT&T blackberry worked with my linux laptop using barry...I did not get it sync with evolution but allowe...

I never saw them...I thought the PC/Mac commercials with the Mac guy from Die Hard 4 were fairly new. Oh well, still think they would be fun to watch. Let me know if you find the spoofs...

Creative Ads for Linux

I would love to see the submissions for this: http://blogs.techrepublic.com.com/opensource/?p=314&tag=nl.e011 I have kind of a good idea that could get carried away: Picture the PC/MAC commercials that we all have seen. You have the PC guy and the MAC guy arguing about something stupid. Then you hav...

I am trying to find the error I was getting and I can't remember the google string I used to search, but if I see it, I will post. I do know for sure that you have to get into the BIOS, or configuration utility of the RAID card. For Dell and its PERC card, its typically been <CTRL> + M while its spi...

So far, two of my upgrades have gone pretty good. The one issue I ran into was putting F10 on an old dell Poweredge 2300 with a PERC2/SC. It got errors on i02, which was how the RAID card was emulating. It would freeze at boot and could not activate the card. Once I went into the BIOS of the RAID ca...

Basher,
Just wondering if this is on a RAID or in a SAN environment? It seems like the kernel is not liking the RAID controller or the HBA?
