Installation issues / post install steps
« on: January 08, 2008, 08:56:10 pm »
I've been able to install 7.10 with no problems by following the install tutorial.  What I need now, is a "post installation steps" tutorial.  What "needs" to be done for any installation, what "needs" to be done for media, for light control, etc...

I stumbled thru the admin web page and found a few things, and was finally able to re-sync my media, but then I read a message in the forum about the manual re-sync not working correctly.

I really like the idea behind LMCE, it's really what I've been looking for for years.  I would just like a little more info to work with on my "play" system.  I am working on a hybrid set-up, as soon as it is working well, I will set up 2 MD's soon.

Thanks for the work you guys have done.

BTW - I messed up some settings while playing around last night (now wont start up), and will re-install from DVD tonight.  I don't mind doing this, because I am just learning.  I am installing on a 40G system drive and have a 250G drive with music, movies (very few), and pix already on it.

I installed 7.04 several months ago, and then added a half dozen ripped CD's and a lot of music.  Then I didn't really have time to work with the system, so it just sat there.

Over the holidays, I installed an old 40G drive as my boot drive and installed 7.10.  This install went very smoothly, BTW.  Now I want it to see the media that's on the old drive, but cannot figure out how to get it to see those directories.

I have all the music on an external drive, and I could re-rip the few DVD's that I have on the internal drive if I need to format and start over with my media drive.  If I do that, what steps are involved.

I did a few searches and couldn't find what I was looking for, and I know some Solaris basics, but I don't have any linux background.

Installation issues / avwizard problem
« on: August 29, 2007, 12:32:47 am »
I'm setting up LMCE on a box with a nVidia 6200 graphics card.  It seemed to install fine, said it found an nVidia card and I said 'yes' to using the nVidia drivers.  My card is driving a 65" Mitsu via Component cable (no DVI/HDMI on this set).  When it boots up, and goes into the AVwizard, I have a black screen, so I hit the key to switch to "component" and I see the AV setup screen, great!  Now the problem comes in.  It doesn't matter what resolution I select, it flickers a bunch, then goes black, then comes back up to the AV setup screen.  I can't get past it.
