[RDD] No Play out on Cart Wall

when I type the ls command in the [root at rdclienta snd] directory I am not getting a list of the wav files we have over 3000 wav files on the main server so it seems it is not seeing the wav files on the server it is seeing the database though

I've got the passwords with the system so I can log in as root I have gained access to the cd /var/snd via clienta output from sudo chmod a+rwx /var/snd/*.wav is chmod: cannot access /var/snd/*.wav no such file or directory. output from ls -l /var it is a fairly long list but this is the snd (drwxrwxrwx 2 Rivendell Rivendell 4096 Apr 9  12:26 snd (the snd is highlighted in red))

    Hi,

    

    It looks like you might be using the Rivendell appliance I'm not
    sure what the root password is, its something you usually set when
    you install it.

    

    The missing operand thing was because you missed a space between
    a+rwx <space> /var/snd.  It wouldn't work anyway as you would
    need to be root to do it.

    

    We can check the permissions to see if they are what they should be:

    

    ls -l /var

    

    There will be lines like this:

    

    drwxr-xr-x 145 administrator administrator 32768 May 22 00:00 audio

    

    You can also try logging in as root instead of the default rd user
    but obviously you'll need to know your root password for that.  All
    we're interested in checking is whether /var/snd is full of wav
    files or if its empty.

          you can try sudo cd /var/snd (or do sudo su first then you'll
          be a permanent admin for any command you use)

          

          It might even be a permissions thing on the directory itself.

          

          You could open up the whole directory but from a security
          stand point its not always a good thing.

          

          Try sudo chmod a+rwx /var/snd

          

          If that lets you cd and ls to see all the files but it still
          won't play try doing the same to the files:

          

          sudo chmod a+rwx /var/snd/*.wav

          

          If that works then it is permissions and we can go about
          restricting them back down.

            right just input cd /var/snd on clienta and
              the output comes back as permission denied

                Ok.  In that case, linux can map directories to
                different places.  For example you can take a remote
                server and map its directory to a local directory.  The
                difference between Windows and Linux is that linux
                treats it like a normal directory and all applications
                have no clue they're working remotely.

                

                In windows things generally just break if you try that
                with shortcuts or whatever.

                

                If you check your local /var/snd if the directory is
                mapped remotely correctly you should see all the wav
                files in there.  If it is empty or only has a few files
                then the mapping is broken.

                

                You'd have to check your server to see if you have set
                up NFS shares properly (/etc/exports) and your local
                machine to see if it is mapped (/etc/fstab).

                    already passed onto via the mailing everything in
                    Rivendell is set as it should be it is looking at

                    machine is looking in the wrong place on the server
                    for the sound file.

                        Hi Wayne

                           

                          Thanks for your prompt reply I am totally new
                          to Rivendell and have no clue how to kill the
                          daemons you mentioned unfortunately being a
                          community radio station run by volunteers
                          people come and go and I've kind of inherited
                          this job of trying to sort out Rivendell, so
                          any guidance on how to kill the daemons will
                          be very much appreciated.

                            Sounds like your sound cards aren't
                            connected to Riv properly.  You can try
                            killing caed, rdcatchd and ripcd before
                            reopening airplay to see if they pick up the
                            changes.

                            

                            Otherwise check rdadmin and edit hosts to
                            see what audio resources Rivendell thinks
                            are available on each machine.

                                          Further to the Rivendell
                                          problem I had experienced I
                                          have deployed the updates
                                          across all three of our
                                          Rivendell machines that is
                                          Main Server, Studio-A Client
                                          and Studio-b client the main
                                          server is running perfectly
                                          the problem now is with studio
                                          a client Rivendell starts with
                                          no problem at all but then
                                          when I add a song cart to
                                          the play out  stack I click
                                          once and nothing happens a
                                          second click it turns red in
                                          the cart but the play out is
                                          not working I have also
                                          noticed that if I click on the
                                          button wall with our jingles
                                          and station id beds they seem
                                          to be counting down but no
                                          sound and then they stop at 1
                                          second before the end of the
                                          jingle, I am sure this is just
                                          a configuration issue but I am
                                          not sure what is
                                          misconfigured. It is Rivendell
                                          2.10.3 that I have updated all
