i am trying to build a lmce box.
i ordered some hardware and now try to run it as a hybrid because i have only one room at my flat
Abit An-2MHD (GEforce 7050pv , nforce 630a Chipset)
2x 1GB DDR2 800 RAm
CPU Athlon64 LE1620 2,4GHz AM2
750gig Samsung hdd
I ran into some Problems when i tried to install with the DVD Installer.
So decided to install Kubuntu 7.04 first and then add LMCE to the installation.
It took my a lot of time to get the geforce 7050 supported. (nvidia-glx /glx-new didn't work) so i
installed the driver with the .sh file from nvidia and everything worked fine. (just 5 hours work to
realize that the kubuntu modprobe.d/lrm-video blacklists the nvidia driver...)
Anyway.... finally i got it working and installed lmce.
Then the bad surprise. LMCE installes the nvidia driver out of the sources. which don't work with the abit board.
So i edited the xorg.conf to the vesa driver and the xserver started without problems. (1)
Because i was sure UI2 would not work with the vesa driver i choosed "basic UI" at the wizard that came up.
Sure to be able to change this after i installed the nvidia driver again.
And then yet another bad surprise. I can't change the UI with the help of the admin web site.
I switched to the orbiter side at the admin side and searched for the drop-down menu but unfortunatly it seems,
that it is disabled.
Is there a way to restart the wizard which is shown at the first boot? I tried to set the "frist_boot" entry in the pluto.conf
to true but that didn't change anything @ the next boot.
(1) LMCE switches between vc/1 and vc/8 (maybe its 7 don't remember) all the time when the xserver can not be started.
Thats really annoying! Maybe there is a better way to show that the xserver can not be started.
LMCE runs fine. But only with the UI1 and i really want to use UI2.
thx for your help and have a nice day
PS. sry for my english
