Installation issues / Re: You Gotta Be kidding me!!
« on: April 25, 2007, 10:34:44 pm »
I would have to agree that the term "out of the box" was used a little loosely. I to was under the impression that the install was going to be simple. And that for the most part was very simple. It had bugs but with all the pkg's and configuration changes that need to take place I would have to say that the over install was not that bad. I was beside my self when I began to configure it.  I still have yet to get it working but I’m plugging away at it. I strongly suggest ( and I know you heard this before) using the help links during the setup. They seem to be very very useful.

The original post just sounded awful harsh. More like there was expectations for free software. I’m one that is thankful for the open source community. I don’t know a great deal about compiling my own code and son on. But I am aware of what it take (I don’t have it) and its not a picnic.

Interesting!! I my self have been attempting an install and have nothing but progress. Yes I agree it was not as simple as one would dream, However the progress that the team has made is wonderfully. I Have been working with some of the support guys via skype and find them to be very helpful.

The fact that you did not seem to appreciate  the hard work that is already in play and continuing to move forward is not what compelled me to reply to this post. I found my self chuckling actually at the lack of respect for the hard work. I did reply to the post because I thought it should be noted that your unless gibberish actually did turn out to be useful.   

I ran the installer from the desktop 3 times after double checking my connection to the Internet and everything and remembered having an issue with mysql-client installing..

I tried to reinstall again and I chose the option not to have MCE launch on startup and told it to let me launch MCE manually. Based on your statement about DHCP..  and I'm moving forward!!!!

SO I guess what I wanted to say was thank you for taking the time to sign up and vent like you did.
