Installation issues / RC1 attempt1: Failed install
« on: July 29, 2007, 07:31:40 am »
I was drunken and tired yesterday evening when I tried installing RC1 and kubuntu live-CD caching was _incredibly_ slow. I should've used a iso instead...

Anyway, I had just installed Kubuntu 7.04, and had not done anything with it. No updates, no nothing.

I then proceed to install Linuxmce, and I went to bed during the Kubunutu Live CD caching. Woke up and it says "installation failed". Logfiles are available:

Do I really need 3 cds? Seems a bit excessive. If the network works properly I shouldn't need the cache CD though?

I am fairly certain that Intels Pro/1000 cards have PXE? Im sure they have some sort of boot support because I see the question for network boot when I start a machine here that has one in it. Theyr'e expensive but supposedly good.

Ok, now seeding. Will have to try install this tomorrow.

I really don't care about the version number. If it tracks Ubuntu thats fine with me. I assume/hope 7.10 adaptations will be fairly simple so that were not getting a huge delay when that comes out.

The thinking is that LMCE be in control of the network, and specifically be a DHCP server for the diskless MDs

But you can very easily just "hook" this off of your regular network, so that any MDs will be doubly NAT:ed. Thats how I did it when I installed.

Sounds really cool. I will need to buy both a HTPC and a Wii soon ;)

Though i guess pairing the wiimote with the wii and PC is bothersome? I would have to switch over all the time?

X-fi is still not supported at all under linux, last I checked. Creative plans on releasing closed drivers but not yet:

The X-Fi series of products are not supported under Linux. (Yet)
Closed-source drivers will be available for the X-Fi series of sound cards.
It looks like the first public Beta will be available end calendar Q3 or early calendar Q4. It has taken more resources than expect to redesign our software and drivers for Vista.
It is planned that the drivers will have full support for ALSA (playback, recording, mixer, MIDI, synthesis) and OpenAL 1.1 (with EAX effects).

I have the exact same problem. Willing to help out with any debugging necessary.

Installation issues / Installer breaks connection
« on: June 04, 2007, 01:19:01 pm »
I tried both on a stanard desktop PC, with 2 NICs, and a laptop with wifi+wired NIC.

Both times, the installer seems to break the internet connection somehow.

If this was fixed, I think my install would be flawless. I actually finished the desktop-install by doing ifup/ifdown on eth1, during the install. It then actually succeeds in continuing, even though a few packages in the middle failed downloading. I guess they got picked up in another later run.

I know Debian does not officially support downgrading of packages at all, I'm sure Ubuntu doesn't either :)

Just a little useless warning ;)

I have updated my Debian install over 3 or 4 major version, no big problems at all. Ubuntu should handle it aswell. Problem is likely with MCE, having dependencies on older version of packages? Just guessing.

A little note of warning: the IR in the wiimote seems to still not be supported in linux, and they are the ones who would allow for accurate pointing on the screen.

But the Wiimote doesn't have any "IR sending" capabilities, it has a digital IR camera for tracking the LED's on sensor bar, and the tracking is supported in cwiid linux driver.

You only have to build a sensor bar, i made mine from 6 IR LED's powered from USB to see if it works, and it works like a charm.

Ok, cool, the page I found on the wiimote said the ir tracking was still not supported.

Both NTFS, so NTFS is fine. Fragemented drive can be bad though, and try just moving the directory to another partition. Works for me ;)
