Now I see progress.....

* Starting OpenBSD Secure Shell server....
* Starting NFS Common Utilities

And I am still waiting...

How much time should a first boot of a diskless MD take?
What is the normal boottime after the first boot?

I have installed a server with Core only, and followed the Wizard in the admin site.
I have also installed a Orbiter in Windows Vista.
I have run the Diskless orbiter wizard.
I have given up trying to boot my HTPC wich has a Asus 8N32-SLI Deluxe mainboard with 2 PXE enabled "Kernel Panic" cards.

Now, trying to boot a diskless laptop with PXE, it connects to the core and my Orbiter asked me a few questions and a lot happens on the Media Director exept getting a GUI. After a while it stopped after "* Starting Samba daemons..."

I have tried rebooting the MD, and rebuilding it in the Admin site. Now I have tried waiting for 2 hours...

How many hours does it take to boot diskless?
Will Linux MCE support at least one of the Nic's on an Asus 8N32-SLI Delux motherboard any time soon?

Edit.. 1024x768@60hz does not work... I now see the buttons on the bottom, but a good chunk of the screen on the right is missing, so I the buttons from the left and up to telecom, the rest is off the screen.

Trying to play a DVD, the DVD starts, but the FBI warning is shifted to the right, and after a few secs of that it gives up and goes back to the menu.

1024x768@60hz works fine. And now I can see the buttons on the bottom...
It works for all my panels.

Now to get some media in... No fun to look at all the other functions when the one button I really want to use does not do anything at all. It did find my Thecus, and have been working on the disk all night. Still nothing shows on the media button?!?

It has asked for several rebuilds... Dont know what they are, but I have said yes on all of them.

Yes, you did mean Pluto... What you call LinuxMCE admin site is called Pluto in the browser.
And I tried setting the resolution to 1366 768/66 and this time I did get a picture. But not the one I wanted.
It now sends 720p @ 60hz wich could have been ok, but since it really is not...

This is way better than a black out of sync, but it shure looks crappy... a big part of the graphics is overscanned
so I can not see the whole GUI.

Does LinuxMCE support 1366x768@66hz? I have 3 LCD panels with that resolution.

By LinuxMCE admin site, do you mean Pluto?!?
I am able to get a website from LinuxMCE where I added a user and try banging my head in the wall....

There is no LinuxMCE admin site, and no Media Directors to find there, but lots of security stuff...
The page is called Pluto.

There is a Files & Media menu there that does not have anything to do with media... Well there is no media there and it is not possible to add some either...

There really is a lot of work left to get LinuxMCE to be able to replace a Windows based HTPC. I can only speak for what I have, but nothing works, No TV, No Sattelite, No Cable, No videos, No Music, No Pictures, No Sound, No Remote, No picture (Black screen) unless I use a monitor or a non HDTV LCD TV. I cant get anything of what I have working with LinuxMCE.

Installation issues / No media!

Not only does LinuxMCE not work on 1366x768 LCD TV's it can't find any media...
I've read the wiki Managing your media
And it says it supposed to find NAS units and Windows shares... It does not!

I have a Thecus Roustor 5200 3TB NAS unit wich runs a linux operating system

LinuxMCE does not find it, and I can not find any way to add the shares from it.

I also have a Windows 2003 server sharing pictures, LinuxMCE does not find that share either.

The PC now running LinuxMCE is was running Vista on a 120GB HD (still does dualboot), and it has 2x750GB sata drives as well with media. How do I add those?

Cool video on Yootube, but after using 4 hours on installing LinuxMCE all I get is "Out of sync" and a black screen.

I have tried on different LCD HDTV's that have 1366x678 native resolution and all go black when booting in to LinuxMCE.
I have a crappy one that is 1024x768 native and it boots fine there...

How do I set correct resolution with a black screen?!?
Does LinuxMCE have a "safemode"?
