Installation issues / Re: Boots to a blue-green lined screen
« on: March 27, 2007, 05:46:14 am »
Ha! Now during boot I get the usual messages, until it tries to re-export directories for NFS kernel daemon... I get this over and over again:

Code: [Select]
* Reloading /etc/samba/smb.conf...
Well, while I'm still writing this, I've managed to figure out that it was because I tried to manually change the xorg.conf file to reflect that I have an nvidia card, and tried to get it to use that instead of the awful vesa driver. What gives? I just realized that I don't even have the nvidia module, though I had it installed before I installed LinuxMCE. It was the only thing I set up before I installed it. Doing a lsmod | grep nvidia pulled up nothing, and modprobe nvidia says "Module nvidia not found". Wow, wasn't expecting that.

Do I need to force a reinstall of the nvidia module?

Installation issues / Re: disabling DHCP functions in LMCE

Go to the webadmin page, then go to Advanced > Network > Network Settings. From there you can unselect the DHCP server and save the page to finish the job. Had the same problem, the installer seemed to ignore my request that it not be a dhcp server.

I have a mb (ASUS M2NPV-VM) with nVidia 6150 GPU, which should be able to handle it. For some reason the nvidia driver wasn't picked up. I tried to reinstall from scratch, and the initial install seems to work, but then I go into the first boot, and it hangs at the A/V Wizard, I believe. Left it there for hours just to make sure, but it went nowhere. Forced a reboot, and we'll see what I can get out of it, but that's the first sign of trouble. Could that be because my TV is awful? I get stuck on the same strange blue, green, and pink lines on the screen I mentioned earlier, which is what I see after I saw the words "A/V Wizard" or something similar about 70% into that first reboot after installing LinuxMCE.

Installation issues / Re: MythTV fails in admin

I DO have a tuner card and I'm getting the same message. I see that the line referenced is this:
Code: [Select]
        function &FetchRow()
             [color=red]   if ($this->EOF) return false;[/color]
                $arr = $this->fields;
                if (!$this->_fetch()) $this->EOF = true;
                return $arr;
Unfortunately, I know practically nothing about php, so I'm lost. As far as I can tell it's a function referenced by something in the Myth section, and bombs out. Anyhow, if I find a solution, I'll post it here, but that's not likely, I'm  not getting very far with it, which is unfortunate, as Myth is the main thing I want.

Kudos go to the team putting it out, it's seriously impressive, but installing that much stuff has got to be a bit of a bear no matter what.

Installation issues / Re: Orbiter failed to setup transparency?

Mine is an ASUS M2NPV-VM, with GeForce 6150, and getting the same message. I think you have a similar mb, right? But yeah, it changed my video card to "Vesa" as well, changing it back to nVidia doesn't seem to help it get through that step, and one is a bit stuck there.

Where might one find the UI in the web admin, if that's possible? That would help me.

Getting a screen that says:

"Orbiter failed to setup the transparency. Please check if the transparency manager is runn"

Then it cuts off, though it has an Ok button. Of course, that just brings me back to the exact same screen.

Well, looks like it just took a very long time to get going, mce-launcher was pegging the CPU at 100%, I got to one screen, tried to pick my resolution, and the only problem is that I can't force a 16x9 ratio with 720p, 1080i, or 480p. This could be because my TV is horribly cheap and not true HDTV, but I would still like to get the 16x9 ratio, if possible. Sorry for what seems like a play-by-play, it's exciting, and my patience didn't hold up long enough to really give this a go. I probably missed something about this in the instructions in my excitement.

I did have to do a bit of CTRL + ALT + F8 or F7 to get my screen up for some reason. Just in case others have a similar experience.

The install seemed to go well, and I saw the LinuxMCE bootup bit, and can even go to the IP address for the box and get the LinuxMCE Admin, where there are no users yet.

The TV is a piece of junk, and I imagine that doesn't help, since the resolution isn't true HDTV, I might have to play with the Xorg file. I'll see if I can get to a terminal. An IRC channel would be a great thing, but might get overloaded...
