LinHES R8 status (1 comment)

Added by jams almost 2 years ago

Work on R8 (64 bits) is slightly behind schedule, but it is progressing at a steady pace.
Last week the base of the system was checked into the repository, and the R7 series was branched off to avoid conflicts.
There are some new things, plenty of bug fixes but still the same system you know and love.

Just a heads up, this version is intended to be installed on a new system as it requires a new partition scheme.
The database and files from a R7 system can be imported without issue, but it will require a little bit of help.

LinHES R7.4 "rdt"

Added by cecil about 2 years ago

It was 9 years ago today that KnoppMyth R1 was first released. It was also 9 years ago when I first met R. Dale Thomas (rdt). At first, Dale host the ISO for KnoppMyth. Shortly there after, he started helping me with development. Living a relative short distance from one another, Dale and I became friends. Unfortunately, the good ones depart us all too soon. I miss my friend and so it is in his honor I release LinHES R7.4 to mark the ninth anniversary of KnoppMyth/LinHES.

The changelog is sparse. This release is primarily to mark the anniversary and to remember our friend. ripD was originally written by me but he spruced it up a great deal. It originally only mirrored a DVD. Since MythTV no longer has menu entries for backup your DVD, I've added the functionality to LinHES. Also included is MythTV 0.25.2. If you are running LinHES R7.3, a simple
pacman -Syu will do. If you are running an earlier version, see this post on upgrading.

URL and domain name shuffle

Added by jams over 2 years ago

During the recovery from the recent hardware failure, some services were moved to new locations.
The change made the rebuild easier and will make future administration easier

Below is a list of services and their URLS.

The domains knoppmyth.net and mysettopbox.tv will be redirected to linhes.org

We apologize for the inconvenienceā„¢

Outage and a new home

Added by cecil over 2 years ago

Well, you are most likely aware we were offline for a little while. We experienced hardware failure... But thanks to jams, we are back up and running! Also, much thanks to liv2cod for allow us have a server in his data center! At the moment, linhes.org is located there. mysettopbox.tv is still up and running at OSUOSL. We plan to transition everything to Paxio and use a VM at OSUOSL to mirror the package repos.
