Migration to iWeb and Ubuntu+Proxmox how-to

By , 2009-09-22 19:56

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:

  1. Install Ubuntu Jaunty (9.04, 64-bit) and update until the update manager won’t update no more 😉
  2. 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.
  3. Add the Debian Lenny stable and update repos to /etc/apt/sources.list and apt-get update.
  4. Download Linux driver for Intel Pro 1000 PCIe card.
  5. Install vzctl, linux-image-2.6-openvz-amd64,  linux-headers-2.6-openvz-amd64, update-grub if necessary.
  6. Reboot, make sure openvz kernel is running.
  7. Make && make install Intel e1000e driver.
  8. (Optional) Install Proxmox VE by adding proxmox repo.
  9. (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.

    so I’m less!!!!!!!! then an expert with Linux and have tried (and failed) to setup MythTV 7-8 times and currently I have resigned myself to the fact that setting up MythTV is a above my abilities at this time. but I have been using proxmox forr about a year now.
    Am I understanding this correctly that you are running MythTV as a VE? if so would you be willing to make or do you have a templete for MythTV-VE that I could download and try in my proxmox box?

      No, sorry… I’m actually running MythTV on the host system together with proxmox. So really what i did was Install Mythbuntu 9.04, then change the kernel to install proxmox on top.
