If removal of the records is the thing that helps,

TRUNCATE from PnpQueue

might be the better option.

Correct. But it was my understanding in the past that after the Kubuntu requirement was nullified, that it basically didn't matter what Ubuntu you installed. Good to have the information that people should use the default desktop version.

phenigma,

thanks for the note on the single nic, and for the verification of the apt-get install. I knew you had done some stuff in that direction, but never looked. The time that I installed two LinuxMCE systems a day are long gone :D and you know what they say about playing with your live system and SWMBO...

Let's see what my friend comes up with, and if he is happy with what we have atm. He wants to have the ability to switch to different output devices from a single MD... kids and their ideas.

After looking at it a bit more, I'll ask a friend of mine, who wants to dip his toe into LinuxMCE to do the following for his i386 install:
Code: [Select]
add-apt-repository http://deb.linuxmce.org/ubuntu/
apt-get -q update
DEBIAN_FRONTEND="noninteractive" apt-get -y -q --allow-unauthenticated install lmce-hybrid | tee $(basename $0 | cut -d'.' -f1).log

basically was the netinstall does, with the exception of working for Ubuntu only.

Is it safe to say, that apt-get install lmce-core after adding the repo to an ubuntu system, should install a core-only system?

Phenigma,

yes, single nic might already be an option. It is a long time I looked at it.

Headless is possible, but atm we still need one for initial setup. polly's work on a web based setup wizard somehow didn't really finish. And the main thing is, that headless is currently something that is not a thing you select, especially during setup. You can easily do it by altering autostartmedia to 0 but for the initial setup it is not, iirc.

A DHCP server needs to be running. Does it need to run on the DCERouter? Only if you want auto-detection for network devices to work. Granted, most want that eventually, but for people who want to just dip their toes into LinuxMCE I think a pure DCERouter running on a regular Linux machine can already do a lot of things.

If no DHCP server is running on DCERouter, the entries that *a* dhcpd.conf entry for a specific device would need, could be presented to the user, or written into a seperate dhcpd.conf file. Right now, we already create a dhcpd.conf file which contains an import statement at the end, for site specifics that a user might want. We could, extend this, and create importable dhcpd.conf files for each device that we create, and link to those files instead of writing all the data into dhcpd.conf. This small importable dhcpd conf file could than be used by the user on a different dhcpd server easily.

Again, my view on this is, that a lot of things work without overtaking the network part or even the XServer.

Just throwing ideas into the wild here. Feedback VERY much appreciated.

phenigma,

what part of the network setup is still needed?

Developers / New pluto.conf option - IgnoreNetworking
« on: March 11, 2017, 06:40:39 pm »
Morning,

I propose a new entry for pluto.conf, namely IgnoreNetworking - whenever IgnoreNetworking is set to 1, all network setup scripts will exit without changing anything. For people who just want LinuxMCE to be part of there existing network, who can live without auto-setup for networking devices etc, this might be a good step.

Thoughts?

Maybe running
Code: [Select]
apt-get install --reinstall linux-image-3.16.0-77-generic
on your MD will fix the issue for you.

I just re-linked the older (3.x) init.rd and vmlinuz files and rebooted. And take care not to apt-get autoremove them ;)

I had issues with the LTS stack as well. It was caused by the newer initrd images being larger than 32M, which causes issues with tftp. To fix it, I switched back to the old initrd and vmlinuz.

kernel upgrade brought me initrd.img-4.4.0-62-generic, now I am back at initrd.img-3.16.0-77-generic - same for the vmlinuz.

That fix helped me, but is just a band aid.
