That's the theory, but ritgh now no one has been able to do it right?
As I said earlier in the thread, yes, I got it to install.
You guys don't need to "fool" anything. I did a fresh install of Ubuntu, and then ran the installer from the first post in this thread. I didn't have to install vim or do weird stuff like other people are suggesting. The only problem I had was with Xorg.conf.pluto.avwizard.
Then you're very lucky? It didn't work for me. My Ubuntu install was as fresh as could be and it wouldn't work. :)

Forgot to add, I did install vim first as suggested elsewhere. No idea if that did anything or not though.

The installer script is downloadable from the first post in this thread. It won't work "out of the box" though, you'll have to find a way to edit the script or fool it in some way.
If you don't already have it downloading I think you'd be better off waiting and seeing what happens when it's official up later today (hopefully) as you might end up needing a different ISO anyway. :)

I got it installed. :)
Using the info above from intrinsic about the iso trying to download to /var/linuxmce I tricked it into installing from the downloaded iso.

After you tell it to download the iso from the internet it brings up a window with a progress meter. Because it downloads the error page as the iso it finishes very quickly. Click Forward when it's done and STOP THERE.
Now if you go in and delete the broken ISO file from /var/linuxmce and instead insert the ISO from the torrent in its place (you'll need to use superuser to do it) you can continue the installation from there and it'll work.

Mostly. I got it installed and it loads and I can access the web panel configuration and all that jazz. But MythTV doesn't work and it disabled my monitor somehow so I have to try and read the text on my TV, which is impossible, so I've no idea what I'm clicking on that machine, etc.
But it does seem to work! :)

One reboot later and the install is toast already. Not sure what I did but now it keeps complaining that the Orbiter can't register with the router. Oh well, wait for the proper release I suppose. :)
