Also, you should run this command to make sure your drive is early-mounted:
Code: Select all
touch /tmp/media/usb/USB1/A6EC-C5E0/.mnt


Awesome guys! looks like it is working now!

Thanks for all your help!

Now I have to start a thread for my next issue :D

I have problems getting this app to work on my WDTV Live.

I am using the root.bin from 1.05.04_V_WDLXTV.COM_EXT3-BOOT_LIVE-0.5.1.1 on an USB stick formatted in FAT32.
The wallpapers are in the directory 'bgimg' on the USB stick. Early mount is activated.

The path configured in the Webend is
Code: Select all
/tmp/mnt/34F7-6845/bgimg


The strange thing is, in the Webend the background changes on every reboot of the WDTV Live, BUT NOT in the OSD.
When i manually execute the script using 'randomwallpaper' over SSH/Telnet, i get no error message.
Doing this, the background in the Webend changes, but that's it.

I tried this with and without a custom OSD, every time the standard wallpaper is displayed in the OSD.
this here: http://www.zimagez.com/zimage/villabg.php

Changing the permissions of the 'bgimg' directory to rwxrwxrwx (777) does not help.


I hope you can help me.

Hey Guys,

I'm trying to get this to run again with PsychoTHC OSD on a WDL and here's what I get:

Code: Select all
cat /tmp/messages.txt | grep randomwallpaper
Dec 31 16:00:25 WDTVLIVE user.notice crazymount: randomwallpaper app found
Dec 31 16:00:25 WDTVLIVE user.notice crazymount: Mounting randomwallpaper.app.bin at /apps/randomwallpaper
Dec 31 16:00:25 WDTVLIVE user.notice crazymount: adjusting PATH: /apps/randomwallpaper/bin
Dec 31 16:00:26 WDTVLIVE user.notice init: Path set to /apps/randomwallpaper/bin:/apps/msdl/bin:/apps/ffmpeg/bin:/apps/autobackup/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin
Dec 31 16:00:57 WDTVLIVE user.notice randomwallpaper: Failed to access /tmp/media/usb/USB1/A6EC-C5E0/Backgrounds!


Any thoughts as to why it wont work? Do I need to put a background path in the OSD section of the WEC as well as the app section for the wallpaper?


Also ran this:

Code: Select all
cat /conf/config | grep RW_
RW_LOCATION='/tmp/media/usb/USB1/A6EC-C5E0/Backgrounds'
RW_RESIZE='ON'






thanks,

It says it cant access the path you supplied
Check that you're using a valid path

Most likely you will need to enable early mount for that drive and change the path (something like /tmp/mnt/A6EC-C5E0/Backgrounds) because randomwallpaper will try to load a wallpaper before the USB is mounted in /tmp/media/usb...

this app changes the background after a soft power down
so when the device is powered on via remote the background will be different

powerdown event :)

I don't understand that. I am copying the USB mount straight from the mount table in the WEC, and then just adding the name of the file (Backgrounds) on the root of the flash drive. ALso, I do have early mount activated, or so I thought. I'll check it all again.

So do I need to create some type of mnt. file on the flash drive then? I have it checked off on the WEC.

all early mount directories start with /tmp/mnt/...

So is that the prefix (so to speak) that i need to put before the path for the usb drive that shows in the mount table on the WEC?
