Frederick Forsyth – The Shepherd
After doing some searching, came across this Wiki entry on the UnRAID site.
A step by step instruction on what to do is found on the UnRAID forum in this thread. Look at post #3.
The recovered data is in the lost+found folder. To access it you’ll need to telnet to the unraid machine, and look in /mnt/diskX (diskX is the drive that you are recovering from) and there will be a lost+found folder. I moved it to a user share, so I can sort through it from the network.
I had tried using Suse Studio appliances a while back, and didn’t have much luck with it. That was over a year ago, and honestly, I don’t remember exactly why I didn’t like it, or couldn’t get it working. I think it may have had something to do with the fact that I could not boot one of those appliances in xen or xenserver (whatever I was running at the time)
Anyway, it seems like there may be home. I came back to visit the site today, and did a bit of digging, and it seems there may be a simple way to convert the xen appliance into a Cirtix XenServer appliance. Get the python script and read the how-to here.
I will have to give this a go.
UPDATE: So I gave it a go.
After some struggling, I can report success. I have managed to get a xen vm created by suse studio to run in Citrix’s XenServer, using the script mentioned earlier.
Once the xva file is imported into xenserver (throught xen center) I need to add “console=ttyS0 xencons=ttyS barrier=off” to the Properties > Startup options of the VM.
Currently I’m refining the one SqueezeCenter appliance VM.
So I think I’ve found a video workflow for dealing with video shot on any device.
The workflow needs a lot of work still, but the basics are down.
Most of my video these days is mp4 format. I would like to first clean up the video (mainly remove camera shake) before doing any processing. This is where DeShaker comes in.
In order to use DeShaker, I need to get the video into virtualdub. Since I haven’t been able to get virtualdub to read the mp4 files directly, I first need to convert the video to a format virtualdub can import. Cineform HD is that format. This is not such a big problem to convert to CineformHD before virtualdub, since I would have converted to it after deshaking anyway.
So the process I’ve currently found to work for me is:
Useing AVS video converter, convert all the mp4 video files to CineformHD. This is wasy as AVS converted does batch conversion, so all the video can be processed in one go.
Then run the video through virtualdub and use the DeShaker plugin. I will try to automate this so I don’t have to manually load every file into virtual dug and run the plugin.
Since I installed the counter on this site (Counterize II) on 26 November 2009 (just over a year ago), I got 14,141 hits (4140 of those from unique IPs, which means lots of repeat readers)
I think that’s pretty impressive (I think) for a site that is still maintained as mainly a useful tool for myself. If others find it useful also, that’s fantastic.
For the longest time I couldn’t figure out why some machines on my LAN could be accessed by their server name, while others required IP address to access.
Then I came across this post.
Mostly linux machines could not be access by their name (only IP address) because the name gets propagated using netbios. If Samba was installed and configured on the linux boxes, then it would work. But since I don’t have samba installed (nor do I want it) I have to manually configure the DNS entries in the Tomato formaware router. Adding the IP address, MAC Address and hostname to the Basic > Static DHCP setup will make the names pingable and accessible from any machine on the LAN.
I just came across a well a brilliant summary of things I need to remember regarding ‘words’. Really the 3rd and 4th paragraph really speak to me.
