Some problem - installation
« on: September 19, 2011, 03:07:37 pm »
Hi,

   I'm having some problems to do LinuxMCE works with my configuration:

Notebook Core2Duo T5500
Video: Intel 945 (using driver i810)
Sound: Intel HDA (using driver intel)
Home automation: Zwave (dimmers and switchs) with an AeonLabs Zstick S2
  
    First problem: I can't use the UI2 with overlay just UI1 and I need switch in /etx/X11/xorg.conf   "Linear alloc" to value "8160" by first time appear other value. Isn't supported my video board by LinuxMCE?
    Second: No sound after install LinuxMCE. When I installed Kubuntu everything was ok, but after no.
    Third: I can't include the Leviton VRCS2 - 2 room controll - Is this supported by LinuxMCE?
    http://www.leviton.com/OA_HTML/ibeCCtpItmDspRte.jsp?item=433267&section=28563&minisite=10026

Thank's

Edgar

Hi,

   One problem solved. To install the Leviton VRCS2 we need to include first the Scene control (pressing the 2 buttons) and after (to include the local switches) press each of then (one by one) by 5 sec to include. If necessary I can include this in wiki (like a how to).

Not sure on the sound issue, if it was working under ubuntu should still work.

Try running alsamixer from the command prompt and making sure everything is unmuted.

Intel graphics accelerators are not qwell supported and will definatly not support UI2.

For this you will need an Nvidia graphics card.

I try - aplay -l  -> no sound card found. Appear my sound card with lspci

I can´t change the video card, I´m installing the core in a notebook.

Another question, were (in the instalation) I make diferences between core and media director?

Thank´s

A quick note: Try to open a new forum thread for new problems. That way stuff doesn't get lost, and other people might be able to easier follow what's going on, in case they have similar problems.

Hi edbroni, can you explain a little bit more the procedure, I have the same configuration and want to get the leviton vrcs2 running.  What you mean is that you take the usb stick, press the button, It starts blinking and you go to the switch and press both at the same time, the stick shoud responde to that, put the stick back on the core and follow the wizard then, take the stick out, press the button again,  go back to the switch and  press each button one by one for 5 seconds, do the wizard again.   Is this correct?

cheers,

T

Hi edbroni...

Please give me the output of lspci -nnk | grep VGA -A2
Go ahead and pastebin your xorg.conf
To be clear, you have to run aplay -l as root so it would be sudo aplay -l   please confirm nothing shows up still and give me the lspci line so I know what it is.
Thanks

I don't know if anyone caught this, but Tompin2 was resurrecting a nearly 1 year old post. Edbroni may not be monitoring the forums any longer...
See my User page on the LinuxMCE Wiki for a description of my system configuration (click the little globe under my profile pic).
