Its still a very new project - much work to do....No, it was too slow only got 20kbps after a few minutes, the europan CD mirrors were much faster.Quote...have well seeded torrents of the DVD ISODid you download the torrent? If not, then you have your answer. If you did - are you still seeding? No one can change this except the downloaders.
Look at this thread to see what i mean.Quote...let me know that i needed Kubuntu 7.04 ISO to install, but crashed at end of install with an obscure error about DeCSS not installing.Seems like two separate issues - don't understand the first. Yes you need an operating system is you are installing from CDs, the DVD is a bundle that includes the OS....?
The second sounds like you were trying to play a DVD and the dvdcss decryption library wasn't installed. This is normal and is a simple package to add, that can't be by default for legal reasons around copyprotection - its mentioned frequently in the wiki, but last I looked, was not something that jumped out at you unless you were looking for it!
My cabling setup doesn't allow for LMCE to have 2 nic's in the way you describe. I don't even want LMCE to do all the plug&play i'm happy to tell it what devices there are but this seemed to cumbersome. I ended up setting up a new subnet with a static router on my OpenWRT router.Quote...leave my network alone (it wants to be dhcp+dns+gateway on it's own network)If you are setting up a standalone LMCE machine, this isn't relevant. It does nothing to your network, just turn off the DHCP if its on. If you are setting up an LMCE environment with MDs, then this is only relevant as it only applies to the internal network and doesn't touch your existing network - assuming that you set it up as described in the wiki and forums, with 2 NICs! Again, this is clearly described in the wiki, but it certainly could be placed more promonently for people just starting and looking for how to download, like with the DVD version scratching your whole HDD!
Quote...give me the option to autodetect my monitorThat would be nice in fact a lot of things around displays and resolution would be nice soas to avoid modlines, etc!Quote...have a good weborbiterNot played with it much, but looked OKish for a simple web product. Could certainly improve a lot with the discussion about UI3 going on at the moment
I would have liked to try 0710 but i was recommended to stick with 0704 if i wanted something that worked. Anyway considering the state 0704 is in what can i really expect from the development release.Quote...use my network shares because they had spaces in them (DISK 1 and DISK 2)This is a bug that has been fixed - get 0710beta2 or 3 in the next couple of days. If you're interested in the project improving, you should be using this anyway 0704 is sooooo yesterday, as you say!
Agreed, lots of good info, but the structure isn't the best to ensure that you come across the important stuff as a newbie in the process of looking into LMCE or downloading.
The things i think need the most improvement is:
• Documentation. The wiki is good but more people need to make an effort to document it.
Interesting.Quote• Getting errata and bugfixes out to the users. LMCE 0704 is quite old by now.
Also searching for issues in the forum gives me flamewars instead of help. Users asking about something and then getting bashed for not searching. Please improve the documentation, errata & bugfixes, it'll help get rid of stupid questions.
I hope this will be used as constructive criticism and used to improve future versions
To address your first question - if you just want live TV and PVR functionality, then yes, you have picked the wrong product. Go with Mythbuntu. Assuming you are in Europe, then another reason to use 0710 is that VDR can be chosen instead of Myth - it was designed for DVB which you are using, and so will integrate better.
there is a native orbiter for linux.Quote...have a native Linux or OSX orbiterThat would be nice, at least a Linux one!
I'm a little confused about the Display settings. I measured my screen and it's 50x24 1/4, so does that mean I set the display size to "1250 606.25". That doesn't sound quite right. Am I on the wrong path with this?
I'm not exactly sure what you're talking about, but FYI displays are measured in either/both their X/Y pixels (eg. 1366x768, 1972x1080) and their diagonal physical size, like 50" from bottom left corner to top right corner. Aspect ratios like 4:3 or 16:9 are derivable from the pixel dimensions, though some display modes will just not use some columns or rows of physically available pixels when an aspect ratio doesn't fit perfectly inside the pixels available.
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
dpkg: Breaks: dpkg-dev (< 1.14.0) but 1.13.24ubuntu6 is to be installed
dpkg-dev: Depends: patch (>= 2.2-1) but it is not installable
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
