On a more serious note DragonK, outside of the obvious (everything gets through avwizard well, etc), I would like to know that you can both ssh to the core without issue, and you can ssh from the core to an MD after it is fully created.

Had a problem with failed to startx on the core. Rebooted and it installed the Nvidia driver failed to startx a second time.  Rebooted a third time and AV wizard came up. I was able to finish setting the core up.  Now trying the revo for the first MD.  SSH  does work now. Will update when the MD finishes.

MD never finishes.  Makes it through the av wizard and just hangs at black screen with white cursor.

This is the second report of this... and I haven't quite figured out why. It appears that
1) The core isn't online when the initial detection is done, so my nouveau backup is not working or you wouldn't get the first failure, you would be using nouveau and not know it unless you looked.
2) The nVidia driver is installed, but the required reboot is not triggered, so it fails again because of the conflict between the nouveau and nVidia
3) nVidia is installed, and reboot happened (manually) so it fires.

Thank you for the feedback on that. I will figure out wtf is going on for sure.
MD never finishing... no clue. I assume you have rebooted it?

So sorry DragonK

This snap is borky. It can be made to work, but there are a lot of problems. Submitting fixes now.

For the record, abort installs of *5950.iso

It's finished baking.

For those of you with older iso's, what I would do if I were you, is try and take advantage of the new zsync's.

Just rename your current image to the new one, so for instance:
Code: [Select]
mv LMCE-1004-20120506204225945.iso LMCE-1004-20120509195625955.iso
sudo apt-get install zsync
zsync http://linuxmce.iptp.org/snapshots/LMCE-1004-20120509195625955.iso.zsync

and it will just download what is different between them :)

Just a suggestion here (actually 2):

Could you perhaps for the sake of overview etc. delete a VERY problematic ISO like LMCE-1004-20120508033925950.iso? Its only if in a day or 2 somebody find a specific problem with the latest, and you have to advise not to use it - somebody could perhaps overlook this thread and then download an image that is REALLY problematic... It's fine to have the old ISOs available, I remember back in the 810 days when sometimes a beta 3 versions old would be the best at a given time, but if a snapshot is bound to be defect, then lets remove it..

And secondly: I am the biggest fan of rsync - how about having the latest ISO twice on the iptp.org server. One should be called "LMCE-1004-20120509195625955.iso" (or whatever), and then the other one could be "LMCE-1004-latest_pre-beta.iso" - and all people should do is zsync that file, and never have to worry  8) (since you would be the one overwriting the latest - with the latest :)

-Tony (who's is only downloading the DVD iso because his setup really F***ed when disabling Myth and enabling VDR - and decided to test this iso)

Yes I rebooted it a few times just to.make sure. I should have tried another MD but figured the revos have always been the easiest to setup.

"works 100%" is a big ask for a pre-alpha installer :)
I've been doing all of my recent snapshot testing on Virtualbox and everything seems to work, virtual cores and MDs, or at least if it fails it is not linked to the fact the install is on a VM.
