This is my first post here, and of course, it's because I'm having a problem. Please bear with me as I'm not the most advanced computer guy out there.
I recently decided to try to take my old desktop computer and repurpose it to use as a LinuxMCE hybrid. Here's the specs on that computer, in case it's relevant:
CPU: Intel Pentium 4 2.8GHz
MoBo: Intel D915GUX
80 GB Hard Drive
3 Gig RAM
And I just recently upgraded it with an nVidia GT730 graphics card
I installed LinuxMCE version 10.04, and after rebooting, the AVWizard returned the error, "Failed to setup X."
I did some digging around the forum and found some old posting directing me to this page:http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/1004_Video_Hardware_Compatibility_List#Add_ALSA_.24_Support
While my graphics card isn't listed on there, I assumed it would be similar to other nVidia cards, so I followed the same fix. I entered the command screen and use the "sudo -I" command to work as root. I then followed all of the commands to upgrade the Kernel to Natty. Upon restart, the computer stops loading. There's a lot of gibberish, but the last line is the following:
[Microsoft Microsoft Wireless Desktop Receiver 3.1] on USB-0000:00:1d.3-1/input1udevd-work: '/sbin/modprobe -b pci:v000010DE0000F02sv00003842sd00002732bc03sc00i00' unexpected exit with status 0X0009
I assumed this had something to do with my wireless mouse and keyboard with the receiver plugged into the USB port. So I unplugged that to see what would happen, and I restarted. In this case I get a very similar message:
udevd-work: '/sbin/modprobe -b pci:v000010DEd00000F02sv00003842sd00002732bc03sc00i00' unexpected exit with status 0X0009
At this point, I tried restarting several times hitting alt+F2 to re-enter the command mode, but either nothing happens at all, or I just get a black screen. In any case, I'm unable to do anything further.
I then tried re-installing LinuxMCE 10.04. This time, when I went to upgrade the Kernel to Natty, I also upgraded ALSA at the same time, but I ended up with the same problems.
I'm not really sure what to do at this point. I'm not sure if I'm following outdated information, or there's something else I should try. Any help would be much appreciated.
