Installation issues / Re: pluto-orbiter failed to install?

Started from scratch (3rd time), and it worked this time (due to adding the extra repo).

Thanks for the help - I'll be back soon when I get stuck on the next bits!  :D

Yes, I realised my mistake the second time around - after starting again from scratch. It seems obvious now I know about it, but I just followed the install steps of the wiki too blindly.

Now have a successful 8.10 install - just got to get mythtv to work and I'm almost there.

I picked the internet install over the dvd, as when I started it was before the beta2 dvd release, and back then internet install was more recent with bug fixes etc.

Right, I've got past that now by adding in the avenard repos.

AVwizard went OK, and I setup the screen etc. Now when it starts I get a window with the title "Orbiter cannot register with the router. Please try again later". I've searched the forum and found some very old discussion on this, that said the fault was due to asterisk being disabled. On my machine asterisk is defnitely running. It might be that I've screwed up something else with my tinkering, so if it's not an easy fix I may be better to reinstall (at least I will be working with the very latest installer then as well).

Please verify that you have
Code: [Select]
deb intrepid release
in you /etc/apt/sources.list

No it wasn't, I've added it and seems to be getting much further. I guess this step should be mentioned in the install wiki? Also worth putting in there would be the steps to configure the nvidia drivers, and the different versions required:

I've just seen has appeared now as well. I'm sure it wasn't there yesterday when I looked for it. I will give that a try in a couple of hours.

Installation issues / pluto-orbiter failed to install?
« on: December 03, 2009, 10:13:05 am »
During ./ I get the message that pluto-orbiter failed to install due to missing dependencies, notably pluto-avwizard and xine-ui.

Obviously orbiter doesn't start up. It's a hybrid setup with a fresh install of 8.10 (internet install). When X starts I get some huge text flashing on the screen "installing" a bunch of packages (including the ones mentioned above). And then a blank screen. avwizard has never appeared at any point.

I've manually installed pluto-avwizard, xine-ui, and pluto-orbiter, which seemed successful, and when it boots into X I get a window with the title "Failed to connect to DCE router"?

How do I fix this, and how can I make avwizard start so that I can make the appropriate settings?

Trying to get 8.10 beta installed on what is intended to be my hybrid machine. I got kubuntu 8.10 desktop installed fine, then did the internet installation of 8.10 beta (I did this last night - 01:00 GMT 30/11/09, would this have got me beta1 or beta2?).

I get to the first setup screen and hit my first problem - when I choose screen res of 1280x1024 (native resolution of the 15" monitor attached), the display goes oversized and crops off the right hand and lower section (it looks like the screen is showing part of a 1280x1024 image on a 1024x768 screen). Can't find anyway around that yet, so I'm limited to 1024x768, at least til I get setup enough to swap to the tv screen.

2nd problem - the orbiter loaded correctly when set to UI1 but when I changed to UI2 (with alpha blending), it got stuck with "orbiter failed to setup transparency", so I dropped back to UI2 (overlay), and then I got "Error: Orbiter failed to initialize OpenGL". UI2 with alpha blending was working fine with v7.10, so I know the hardware is capable of it.

Now I've just tried to do "apt-get update" and "apt-get dist-upgrade" to see if that fixed anything (is it any different to "aptitude update", which I'd already done?), and now the orbiter fails to start without any error message - I just have a blank screen with the mouse pointer.

What should I try next?
Maybe I should go back to 7.10, but I need to setup partitions manually and dual boot, and I don't think 7.10 can do that?
