Installation issues / Re: LMCE-1204-20150909140531356 snapshot notes
« on: September 27, 2015, 02:41:20 pm »

Sorry it has taken so long but I finally attempted to build a MD.

When the video/audio wizard ran I received text only.

There was STEP0 in red, STEPS 1,2,3, etc in green and no fields listed.

If I pressed the space bar the connecter, dpi and Hz boxes would pop up.

I could select HDMI, 1080p and 60 hz.  Then press enter key, the screen would go dark, but instead of moving on to Step2 the system would go into a loop back to Step 1 choices.

I installed snap 31356 from scratch and I updated/upgraded my system this a.m. (Sept. 17/15).

My NAS was discovered and UpdateMedia found my "videos" and id3tags.

I had to adjust alsamixer for volume - using analog stereo.

FYI - I use an USB KVM and if the port for the LMCE system is not selected (active) I receive the following message on the terminal...

init: plymouth-stop pre-start process (10471) terminated with status 1

When I switch to the active port my mouse and keyboard are discovered.  I hit "enter" and receive a command prompt.  Xwindow does not start.

The startx command provides a .Xauthority does not exist message and F7 window shows startup messages.

When I switch between KVM ports I get disconnect/reconnect messages.  This is new for me but no big deal.  I just need to boot with the KVM port active and the LMCE system comes up fine.

FYI - When I use the menu to "Power Off MD" the system reboots, it does not shutdown.

I am going to build a MD or two next.

I tried this snap x3 installs to figure out what was going on - (O.K. so I'm a little slow).

I was attempting to do a Core/Hybrid install.

On the first install I got audio/video setup but I never received Sarah.

What I noticed on the second install was that the system was doing a lmce-core install.

O.K. let it run out (because on the first install I tried Graphical Aspect - high to see if it was working) and on the second I went for medium to see if that was the issue.

So, the third time I did medium graphics again and went finished I logged in as root and tried "apt-get lmce-hybrid" - (can't get there from here).

I did an apt-get update & apt-get upgrade.  Reboot.  Got Sarah, did the Media Player setup.  When software was finished downloading did the restart.

Got Flicker and menu.

The volume was very low during audio setup and Sarah so I'll have to probably go into alsamixer to adjust - will advise.

I will try to add my NAS to see if I have the same issue (from about a week ago) with the wget install.

(NAS didn't go to sleep but UpdateMedia didn't do anyrthing until I did a Resynch in webadmin.) - will advise.

You could also try installing Kubuntu and doing a web upgrade as per these instructions...

Good luck.

I've tried a few DVD snapshots but each one was problematic.

If you are just trying to build a Core/Hybrid, just for checking things out,, worked for me.

I did create MD's (Media Directors) on this load [requires extra work as MD's weren't part of original build due to DVD space restrictions].

I can confirm what you are seeing.

I took it a little further than you probably have and the 731228 snaphot goes no where.

As well this snap has no capability of building a separate MD (Media Director).

I am presently installing an older snapshot and if it is successful as a Core/Hybrid I will notify you of the date tag.

Hi jvandam87,

Just a couple of things...

I hope you verified your md5sum value.

When you burn your image to a DVD, burn at the slowest speed possible.

I just downloaded the 731228.iso and will be testing the image later.

I'll let you know how it went.



This issue occured on various releases.

I just did an update, upgrade, dist-upgrade on my 14.04 dup HDD.

I haven't done anything on 14.04 for about a month.  (Hey, it's summer, it's hot and it's beer, bikini and boating season!)

I did not have anything populated under Media (off my NAS) for about 20 minutes.  UpdateMedia is still running and running.

Webadmin for NAS file server views shows nothing populated under UUID (same as 12.04).

I did not have to check online box.

Did you upgrade from 10.04?  If so you need to have username/password on your NAS because of changes to enhanced security in 12.04.

I wasted a lot of time running down symbolic link errors because I did not have password protection on 10.04 for my NAS when I upgraded to 12.04 (hence 14.04).

I've had that issue in the past.

I've had to cold boot to fix, or, swap ethernet cables with a cold boot, swap back cables, swap cards, disable mobo ethernet and add another peripheral card, etc.

At the moment my system is solid and I no longer (ATM) receive the 'waiting for network connection message' on a startup.

Hi cfernandes,

Did you try a cold boot? (power supply off/wait 30 seconds/power supply on)



I'm installing a Core/Hybrid with a NAS and a MD.

So far,

On initial C/H setup received messages (ConfirmDependencies) failed to get
    - cifs-utils (smbfs)
    - asterisks-perl
    - Linphone Library
    - EXIF/IPTC metadata manipulation library

On the C/H during audio setup at Step 6 (DVI video/analog stereo) I received ***No Audio***/Bonus CD with sample audio-tracks was not installed.

On the C/H I had no audio (music) during audio adjustment stage so I popped my audio up to 90%.

Sarah came up with audio.

On the MD (HDMI video/HDMI audio) I received the same "no audio" message, pumped up the volume to 90% and Sarah had no audio.

Once MD was running I went into alsamixer and got HDMI audio running.

NAS came up no problem off Core.

I did not see any Network messages during initial start-up (i.e. Waiting for Network Connections) - hurray!

MD via TBZ came up using precise sources.  Should I try building with utopic via TBZ?

I had some wierdness with having to do cold boots to get things running. 

During MD creation on Acer Revo with Win7 on HDD - when booting HDD Win7 tried to run automatic repair and failed.

Fortunately a reboot got the HDD running without any major surgery.

Overall, nothing that couldn't be worked around.

If you want anything looked at - pls. advise.


Hi phenigma,

I can verify that the nvidia drivers are working on 14.04.

I'm going thru some things and am presently building a MD via TBZ.

I include some notes later.



Just curiuos.  Don't want to download and test if missing major functionality.

Just for grins I tried grub commands to boot the system as single user or non-GUI initialization, but, single user failed completely while init 3 still tried to run AVWizard with nvidia-current reboot.

On my system...

grub>set root=(hd0,msdos1)
grub>linux /vmlinuz ro root=UUID=blah-blah-blah-blah-blah 1 (or 3)
grub>initrd /initrd.img
