On this page the basic configuration required to get the KreaTV Starter Kit up and running is described. The KreaTV Starter Kit typically consists of:
Download and install the Java Runtime Environment (JRE). You can find it here.
Be sure to change directory to the starter kit directory or else the following will not work.
Install the RPMS in the rpms/ folder, as root type:
rpm -Uvh rpms/*.rpm.
To make an upgrade from an older version of the Starter-kit you may first need to remove the old installation.
To find out what you have installed on your system type:
rpm -qa|grep kreatv. You will see a listing that looks something like this:
As an example you can remove the package "kreatv-utils-2.2-01". Type as root:
rpm -e kreatv-utils-2.2-01
Note that some packages are dependent on others and then you have to remove them at the same time. To completely remove the Infocastserver, the config files and the bootimages as root type:
rpm -e kreatv-infocastserver-3.0-01 kreatv-evaluation-bootimages-emea-18.104.22.168-01 kreatv-infocastconfig-emea-1.0-01
Here is a list of things you need to check after the Infocast Server has been installed for the first time:
service infocastserverd start) and checking that it is actually running (
service infocastserverd status).
This is the configuration changes you need to do (from the default installation configuration) to get an IP-STB up and running:
Note! The IP-STB can still run without a web based portal available, by using only the demo applications included in the Evaluation Kit boot image.
whitelisturls.xmlto match the URL and path where the portal is. The IP-STB will display the first entry in this file upon startup. Check the link for further details.
proxylist.xmlto reflect this. Check the link for further details.
homepageurl.txtto match your desired www home page. The web application will start on this page when pressing the WWW button. If Internet connectivity is not available, it's recommended to set this blank (i.e. have an empty file).
channeltable.txtto match your multicast TV channels. This is used by the TV application included in the boot image. Check the link for further details.
When all the above steps are finished, do the following to start the IP-STB:
service infocastserverd restart) to make it read the configuration changes you have made.
service infocastserverd status)
