Hmm, it is too sad, when nobody cares. At least I do, finally.
I'm going to update my svn copy of oe (I stucked at rev 393, haven't got time since then).
Some work is surely needed. Here is Ex-link log from LE46A956 with SamyGO-All-Extensions-v0.03.6-r12-for-T-RBYDEUC-20110103183155.
Edit: url deleted
I haven't read doc yet, I just extracted it to USB as normal user would.
You can contact me directly at same mail address as we communicated a year ago.

New version is available for download:
SamyGO-All-Extensions-v0.03.6-r12-for-T-RBYDEUC-201103282318

Includes:
new fixes for T-RBYDEUC from arris69
arfix-sh 1.2

I shortly tested the extensions on LE46A956:
- working SSH root access with password (instead of telnet)
- nfs/cifs shares mounted at startup
- virtual usb gadget seems to work. It is not necessary for WiseLink player on T-RBYDEUC, it is here just for compatibility with other models
- http server with php: working 8-)
- arfix-sh applied at startup
- disabled framebuffer, injectso, loadGameMains and start_exeDSP as not applicable on T-RBYDEUC
- sendinfo does not work (sendmail can't read config file)

I can recommend the extensions as a good framework for playing with linux inside your tv.
Thanks arris69. And if you ever continue development of extensions, please keep things simple (no more privateers)

Hi Tom,

I have a basic question. I need to patch my firmware to use samygo extensions. With the latest firmware patcher arfix1.2 is already applied.
So if I use this version of SamyGO extensions, arfix 1.2 will be also applied at boot. I would like to disable arfix 1.2 in extensions. So what is the best approach to do this ?

Any module can be disabled like this

Code: Select all

cd etc/init.d
mv 70_70_arfix-sh.init 70_70_arfix-sh.init.dis
but there is no harm in re-aplying arfix

Replying here instead of "LExxA75x LExxA85x LExxA95x SH4 Owners Only "

Yes, another samsung's crap on root filesystem: there is a couple of symlinks for non-existing applets of original busybox.
vi is the most annoying of them. Use e.g. alias to fix it. Can be also applied permanently in profile.

libro wrote:Hello,

I'm quite impressed by the effort that's gone into these extensions. I particularly like the way things autoconfigure and on the whole "just work".

One of the key things I want to do is mount a samba share on boot. I've had a good look at the 04_04_samba.init file, and it's the calls to smbclient in get_shares that are causing a problem. I'm able to mount a samba share manually on the command line as follows (which appears to be what is ultimately done by the init script):

# mkdir -p /dtv/usb/sdc/smb/testdir
# /bin/busybox mount -o "rw,user=XXXX,password=XXXX,codepage=cp1250,iocharset=utf8" -t cifs "//a.b.c.d/SamyShare" /dtv/usb/sdc/smb/testdir

(with XXXX and a.b.c.d as real values, naturally)

I can then see the mounts and navigate the files. Also on the TV (which seems to slowly find the files and populate the on-screen list). I can also ffwd and rewind in them, which is excellent.

However, the automatic scanning and sharing is not working 100%. Firstly, the server with the shares does not always show up in /proc/net/arp. Secondly, when I run smbclient directly I get the following (repeated continuously):

init_iconv: Conversion from CP850 to ANSI_X3.4-1968 not supported
init_iconv: Attempting to replace with conversion from ASCII to ASCII
....

Probably for now I will just replace the 04_04_samba.init script with a handcrafted one for my environment, but I like the idea of the autoseeking that is going on, so I will keep trying to get it working.
look again into 04_04_samba.init and double check how the script calls smbclient.
you can also set the SERVER variable.
you can ping you servers before the script start. (busybox seq 1 254....)

arris, I confirm that smbclient has broken iconv.
I noticed it before but didn't know it is used for detecting remote shares.
