Users / Re: "Use orbiter to continue" ???

Well I guess that is the problem then because, as I said, the only thing that shows up on the OnScreen orbiter are menus at the bottom.

Users / "Use orbiter to continue" ???

I have successfully booted a media director from the core machine.  It boots up with no errors and gives the message "We have announced ourself to the core.  Please use a orbiter to continue."

I then installed pluto win orbiter on another machine on the network and also added an Onscreen Orbiter from the web admin page.

The pluto win orbiter loads and connects to the media director but I don't have any options.  All I have are menus on the bottom like:

Security, Lights, Media, etc.

Clicking on any of menus does not pull up any data.

The media director that I booted to is supposed to be used primarily as a pvr.  What do I have to do from here?

In the PlutoHome distribution there is built in checks in some of the scripts that enforce the same Kernel version on the Core and the MDs. I am not sure if this has been removed for linuxMCE or not, but it is something to look out for.

Well I'm not sure if that is the case.  I know the kernel on the core machine has the module I need for the media director (forcedeth).  If the Core must have the same kernel as the MD, then my media director should boot up and load the forcedeth module unless the module is there but it is just not loading for some reason.

I've been trying this for the past 3 days and I get the same error every time.

Okay that makes sense.  Thank you.

Developers / Diskless Boot Image
« on: April 29, 2007, 11:56:05 pm »
I'm wondering how the diskless boot image is created and where it is stored.  I'm assuming that it's a linux kernel image that is sent to the media director when it boots to the network.  Is this true?

I ask because I am wondering if it's possible to create a custom kernel for the diskless media directors to support specific hardware.

I've done 2 fresh installs and the AV Wizard did not run on either one.

Any ideas?

Reinstalling ubuntu and linuxmce solved the issue.

I'm trying to setup a media director.  I've gone through all the steps explained.  The pc is getting the correct IP address however it is getting stuck while doing tftp:

PXE-E32: TFTP open timeout

Any ideas?

The command 'lspci' is not working?  How are you trying to run it?  Again, where did you see that your video card was a different model exactly?

Well I don't have access to the machine right now but I'm wondering, why would DHCP not be running?  Isn't that one of the main functions of LinuxMCE?  To provide a DHCP server? 

The issue seemed to be the Linksys router.  Apparently it wasn't playing nice.  I had to add a switch in to the mix to get things going.  The network now looks like this:

Cable Modem->eth0->eth1->Switch

All pcs on the lan are connected to the switch as well as the wireless router.  DHCP was disabled on the router and it the status was changed from Router to Gateway. 

Everything works great now.

Where do you see it "reading" the video card as radeon 9200?  What does the output of lspci say about your video card?

Users / Network Issues
« on: April 17, 2007, 03:38:58 pm »
I successfully installed LinuxMCE last night on a dedicated core server.  The server has two gigabit network cards:

ifconfig output
eth0 -> Cable Modem
eth1 ->

I am able to access the internet from the core server.   I am also able to access the LinuxMCE admin pages if I go to or http://dcerouter from the core.

The issue I am having is getting the other computers on the network to receive IP addresses.  I have a Linksys wireless router that was acting as the DHCP server.  I disabled DHCP on the router and gave it a static IP address of through the LinkSys interface.  I then went in to the LinuxMCE admin page and made sure DHCP was enabled under Advanced->Networking.  I also set the DHCP server to start giving IP addresses from so as to not conflict with eth1 or the LinkSys router.

After applying the above updates I was unable to pick up an IP address on any of the computers (windows or linux) on the network. 

So the question becomes, is this setup even possible?  Will disabling DHCP on the LinkSys router essentially turn it in to a switch?  Has anybody had any experience with this?

If anybody has a similar setup I would love to here how you were able to assign IP addresses to numerous computers on the network.

Thanks in advance.

victorbrca, on a side note, could you tell me what software you used to create that network map?  It's very slick.
