Installation issues / apt-get update -> "Hash Sum mismatch"
« on: April 24, 2010, 11:18:28 pm »
I am trying to install LinuxMCE beta 2 from DVD, but I am running into issue with apt-get update after first login to the kubuntu.

I was looking at the bug database, ubuntu forums and this forum, but I couldn't find an clear answer.

Basically when I am running the command:
Code: [Select]
$ apt-get update

Then the error occurs:
Code: [Select]
Hit stable/main Packages
Fetched 2B in 1s (2B/s)
W: Failed to fetch  Hash Sum mismatch

E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

I was trying to run:
apt-get -f update, apt-get clean, apt-get autoclean, but no success. Any hints / help really welcome!

Users / Network layout question - all-in-one router.
« on: November 19, 2009, 02:09:40 am »
I was reading back and forward all the topics about using two network cards, but I am wondering how to set up core correctly when the modem which is provided by my ISP is an all-in-one DSL modem with router, 4 port switch and build in access point.
 In my setup I will have:
  - n800 tablet with Internet access, to access the MD (wifi connection)
  - one computer with Internet access, to access the MD through the generic weborbiter (ethernet connected to the switch)
  - one netbook with Internet access, to access the MD through the generic weborbiter (wifi connection)
  - NAS connected (ethernet connected to the switch)

I was planning to connect the MD to the 4 port switch in the router and also core to that switch together with NAS and extra computer, so all ports in the switch will be occupied and let the core give the DHCP addresses. Add one virtual NIC to the core, so it will go through the same utp6 cable to the switch, configure the first NIC to access the internet and the second one connected to the same switch to access the rest of the devices at home on another subnet running the dhcp server.

I am wondering if the wifi connected devices will get the DHCP addresses from the core in such setup.

I am trying to reduce the number of toys/hardware in this setup and I am reluctant to buy yet another switch and access point. Please let me know what do you think

Users / 8.10 Weborbiter strange behavior + connect to proxy orbiter failed
« on: November 16, 2009, 11:33:10 pm »
I have reinstalled my LinuxMCE with beta 8.10, before I was using some alpha version on top of 8.10.

I have added web-orbiter (generic-orbiter) and it finished regenerating after which I did the quick reload.

The orbiter was listed but when I was trying to login, I was always getting the:
"Connect to proxy orbiter failed, please try again"

After this I have removed the web-orbiter from my device tree and re-added. While accessing the weborbiter.php site nothing was listed this time in the Device dropdown, so I have added yet another generic orbiter and now it was listed (In the device tree I had two generic orbiters, but only one was listed through the weborbiter.php). Anyhow the symptoms while I was trying accessing were the same:
"Connect to proxy orbiter failed, please try again"

Basically I was following the instructions from:

Could someone point me to the information how I could fix/debug the problem? What log level should I enable to find what might go wrong?

Users / N800 can't connect using LinuxMCE Orbiter software :-(

I was trying to set up the N800 tablet without joy. The steps I was following are from:

I would like to know how to debug what's wrong:

 - I have downloaded the newest firmware and installed OS2008 - (Software Edition 2008 version 5.2008.43-7 for Nokia N800 / The latest IT OS DIABLO release for Nokia N800 )
   - the orbiter software for N800 was installed by clicking on:
 - The LinuxMCE which I am using is based on 0810 - new-installer-alpha-latest.tar.gz from 2009-09-30
 - I did disable the firewall as I thought that this might be the issue, my system contains two cards, one wired and one wireless. The wired is connected to dhcp server and wireless is manually configured for different subnet.

I did setup the wifi to connect ad-hoc to the device as due to some wired bug I couldn't get the dhcp address from my router:
    ifconfig wlan0 down
    sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode ad-hoc
    sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid "testme"
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
    sudo ifconfig wlan0

I can ping the tablet:
 PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
 64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=255 time=18.9 ms
 64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=255 time=13.0 ms

Also from the tablet I can open web-orbiter based on the webpage:

So when I am starting the LinuxMCE Orbiter pointing at the correct IP address and the Orbiter ID 76, which is the correct one, the symptoms are as in the wiki:
 "(If the Start Orbiter button stays "pushed" (i.e. blue) for only a few seconds then changes back to normal, then something has gone wrong. Check your network connection and verify the IP and Orbiter ID are correct.) "

I believe that everything is fine. Is this orbiter working with 0810? How to find out what might be wrong?
