Installation issue - hangs on startup

Postby supra92 » Thu Apr 02, 2009 1:30 am

Hi all,

First off, the basics:
PC: Dell Optiplex GX620, 2GB RAM
OS: Scientific Linux 5.2 (RHEL rebuild, a la CentOS)
IP address (server):
IP address (PS3):
PMS: version 1.10.5
mplayer, ffmpeg, and mencoder all installed via yum via the DAG repo
Server ( can successfully ping the PS3 (

Created a launcher in gnome: /home/myusername/pms-linux-1.10.5/

When I run this this launcher, the Java screen comes up fine, but hangs on "Contacting PS3..." on the main page. The TRACE tab shows the following info:

[main] TRACE 19:16:27.809 Starting Java PS3 Media Server v1.10.5
[main] TRACE 19:16:27.811 by shagrath / 2008-2009

[main] TRACE 19:16:27.822 Encoding: UTF-8

It never gets past that Encoding.... line.

Anyone have any ideas why this is not continuing on, registering the transcoders and connecting to the PS3?
