Installation issues / Can't get past setup wizard, too slow?
« on: September 21, 2007, 12:26:48 pm »
After hacking fglrx in the system, and creating a custom xorg.conf with dpkg-reconfigure, finally I got in to the launch manager. :) After a while, I got a screen which said 'One moment', and after that the setup screen. (If you can see and hear me, press the Next button, or so) Now the problem:

There was no video (don't know if that's normal), clicking anywhere does not do anything, pressing a button on the keyboard also, and on the remote too. Every while, the screen blinked to black for a second. Direct rendering is enabled, and I'm using UI2 without alpha blending.

My video card is an ATI Radeon X300 with 128MB RAM, which once ran Pluto correctly with UI2 with no alpha blending.

Installation issues / AVWizard blackscreens, even with correct number keys
« on: September 21, 2007, 09:45:42 am »
I just installed LinuxMCE 0704 QuickInstall on an simple PC with an ATI X300 card. It installed correctly, but on first boot, before the resolution beeps, my TV gives 'Video Mode not supported'. After pressing 1 (DVI), waiting, and pressing 7 (1024x768, the only mode that works completely in X on that tv), the screen blacks out, even after the beeps, and after waiting 10 minutes. The xorg.conf has the correct resolution, and the TV gives no error. Note that after switching the TV to EXT1, and back to PC, the PC name on the TV OSD did not say PC-D, like it usually does with DVI, but just PC. Switching to VT2 (Ctrl+Alt+F2), and all VT's from 1 to 5 works correctly, and gives the PC-D identifier.

By the way, the TV is an Philips 26" model. :)

Could anyone help me? :)

PS: The TV always worked correctly with the Pluto AVWizard.

Users / Diskless boot, like Pluto

Does LinuxMCE also have diskless boot stuff, like Pluto has?
