My faithful readers (all 0 of them) may notice that the site is considerably faster now. My blog is now hosted on a proper server over at iweb in Montréal instead of on my home server, leaving it free for other tasks.
As seen previously, I was attempting to set up a combination MythTV/OpenVZ server. Well, I finally got it working:
- Install Ubuntu Jaunty (9.04, 64-bit) and update until the update manager won’t update no more 😉
- Install and configure MythTV backend. This step’s difficulty may vary depending on the tuner card. My Hauppage HVR-1600 was supported by Ubuntu out-of-the-box.
- Add the Debian Lenny stable and update repos to /etc/apt/sources.list and apt-get update.
- Download Linux driver for Intel Pro 1000 PCIe card.
- Install vzctl, linux-image-2.6-openvz-amd64, linux-headers-2.6-openvz-amd64, update-grub if necessary.
- Reboot, make sure openvz kernel is running.
- Make && make install Intel e1000e driver.
- (Optional) Install Proxmox VE by adding proxmox repo.
- (Optional) Install mercurial and hg clone v4l-dvb. The main branch was broken, so I used one of the dev’s personal repos. make && make install v4l-dvb; cx18 now works again.
