for some reason lives thinks it only has 0.44gb free space in livestmp. i have
59gb free in my home partition, so i'm not sure what the deal is. (yes i have
livestmp in my home folder as per default)
Where are you seeing this message ?
Is there anything strange about your home directory (e.g. on NFS, remote
drive, Windows partition, etc) ?
You dont mention the version but I presume you are using the latest (1.6.0)
hey, sorry, just after i posted that i realized i should have given more info:
everything about the home dir is 'normal' i have a seperate "/" and "/home"
partitions, ext4, livestmp is in my user dir, as normal. i'm using version
1.4.9 which is on this ppa: https://launchpad.net/~ferramroberto/+archive/liv
es/+packages (i got that from the download section on the website)
is htere a lives 1.6.0 ppa or deb package? i'll install that first, and see if
i get the same error.
oh, and i'm using zevenos 4.0 (based on ubuntu 11.10) if that makes any
oh, and, sorry, i can't find a way to edit a post...
in the prefs/directories dialogue, where you specify wher the livestmp dir is,
it states how much space is left
Most likely this is fixed in 1.6.0. The new ppa should be out any day now.
installed zevenos 4.0 on an hp pavilion g6, and lives 1.6 from this ppa
https://launchpad.net/~n-muench/+archive/programs-ppa (the official ppa is still at 1.4.9)
i now have my linux on one partition only, ext4
now it's giving me a warning on startup saying it only has 123.14mb, when my
ext4 partition has over 100gb. started it with a terminal, and appart from a
warning about the theme not working quite right
(lives-exe:6099): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme directory filesystems/32 of theme BeOS
has no size field
so, i'm at a loss, not sure what to do next
No idea really. This is a new feature in LiVES so there are bound to be some
initial issues with it.
All I can suggest is that you go into Preferences and click on the Warnings
tab and set the disk warn and critical levels both to zero.
ok, i will give it a go tomorrow. i was having issues with recording a live
performance, and having lives crash half way through saving it. hopefully the
new version fixes this, will try it out.
ok, so now it won't even play the clips (mp4) i've loaded. just flashes the
play screen then disapears. no errors when starting from terminal
unless this warning is something:
(lives-exe:5933): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: invalid cast from GtkWindow' toGtkButton'
Try deleting your ~/.lives file before starting LiVES. This will force a clean
install, and maybe fix whatever is causing these problems.
Also try with the official ppa which has now been updated to 1.6.0
you mean this one: https://launchpad.net/~ferramroberto/+archive/lives ?
still at 1.4.9 apparently.
i remember reading somewhere that 1.6 is available for the next ubuntu (12.04)
is that what you're meaning? when will a port to 11.10 be done? i'm itching to
get some remixing going :)
1.6.1 is being backported to 11.10 as we speak. Or if you cannot wait you can
add the following to /etc/ap/sources:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/quadrispro/backports/ubuntu oneiric main
thanks for that.
I updated from that repo you posted. same issue.
I might have missed the obvious, so if i have please forgive me, but I think
the ammount of "disk space' reported for /livestmp is a count of how much ram
i have 4gb handy, and with nothing in livestmp it tells me there's 3.67 gb
handy. when i do a live take and render that to a new clip, the ammount of
space goes down, but when i save the clip set and re open it, the available
space goes back to 3.67.
That would explain why lives randomly quits when rendering a live to a clip
(if it just runs out of ram)
Does that sound like something that should/could be happening (or is that
normal behaviour, and i've missed the obvious)?
so now after a restart (over night) it's back down to 1.36gb, so now I have no
theorys. maybe i should just try with a different distro?
Yes maybe. I am not sure if LiVES have ever been tested on your zevenos
i'll try an other distro and report back. i don't really see why it wouldn't
work on zevenos, if it works on ubuntu, but you never know eh.
this is the weirdest thing, i've installed xubuntu 11.10 (which zevenos 4 is
based off) and it gives me the right ammount of disk space.
only difference: using 64bit xubuntu, and seperate / and /home partitions,
still ext4. maybe some weird customization the author did with zevenos
conflicts with lives some how...
Oh, hang on a minute, I double checked the sourcecode and I think I found a
bug in the free space calculation.
Is it possible for you to try with the subversion version ?
possibly, i have xubuntu 11.10 installed now, and the free space calculation
seems to be working fine on that (although i have had a couple of random
crashes at rendering to clip time, but i've wised up, and saved the live
performance as a layout in multitrack mode, so all is not lost any more)
