Installation issues / iMON PAD + LCD on Thermaltake DH101
« on: April 14, 2008, 01:49:34 pm »
Hi All,

I got this case (Thermaltake DH101) and with it came the iMON PAD and LCD. I have LMCE 710b4 installed and everything, but i can't seem to get the remote to work.

Here are all the links that I have tried, and none of them worked:

libtool (1.5.22-4 in my repository)
autoconf2.13 (there is a higher version, but select this one)
cvs (1:1.12.13-3)
dialog <------------ missed this one

sudo apt-get install dialog
sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r`
sudo apt-get install lirc
tar xvjf lirc-0.8 3pre1.tar.bz2
CD lirc-0.8.3pre1
patch -p1 < ../lirc-0.8.3pre1-imon-pad2keys.patch
sudo make install

mknod /dev/lirc c 61 0

mknod -m 666 /dev/lcd0 c 180 144
modprobe lirc_dev
modprobe lirc_imon
echo "Hello" > /dev/lcd0

Followed the above wiki, only I didn't copy and alter the init file for lcdproc to start on boot, instead:
- sudo crontab -e
and add the line
- @reboot /usr/local/sbin/LCDd -c /home/mythtv/lcd/LCDd.conf

modprobe lirc_imon
ls /dev/lcd0
echo "Hallo Welt" > /dev/lcd0

could anyone plz help ... thanks all

Installation issues / Remote Desktop .. how can i?
« on: April 11, 2008, 04:35:38 pm »
Got my installation runnig, now tring to get all my devices setup, but im stuck at one point, which actullay is divided into two parts:
1. i notice that my system has 2 IPs (internal & external), i really dont understand why, and i still haven't researched the subject, but for example when the system is installed i get internal ip of 192.168.80.xx and external ip 192.168.80.xx although my entire network is on 192.168.1.xx where my router is on so after i install i change the external ip to and accordingly the subnet mask, the gateway, and dns. [this is part one but not the actual problem that i have]
2. actually all of this i guess is to enable myself to remote desktop from my laptop (win xp) using vnc instead of sitting infront of the tv. i instaled vncserver but could't connect to. i couldn't even get the orbiter to open from my laptop. i also tried putty, but no luck. (always thought that one can connect with putty - telnet - with no extra settings on the linux box)

so my question is:
- are there any firewalls on the LMCE that i should open ports on?
- which ip do i use to connect? i tried both but none of them even ping

Hi all,

First time trying to setup LinuxMCE and looking forward to doing so. I downloaded the DVD [linuxMCE-DVD-0710Beta4-amd64.iso] and when it starts i get the selection screen and select install, then it goes to show the kubuntu screen with progressbar and then goes in that error:

[xxxxxxxxxx] buffer I/O error on device fd0, logical block 0

my hardware is:
MB: Gigabyte GA-MA78G-S2h
CPU: AMD Athlon X2 4400+
HD: Hitachi 500GB SATA
DVD Rom: Lite-On SATA
No graphic card (the chipset on the mb is enough for now)

Now i read that sata drives cause some problems with the installation, but which drive: the DVD or the HD? and is there any work around?

thanks all
