Users / Re: Setting up Nokia 770 as an orbiter???
« on: December 22, 2007, 02:20:07 am »
Thanks for the reply! I was able to get it to work, but now that I updated to OS2008, here we go again:-)
Lets see if I can get this to work before I come crawling back (or does it work yet for 2008?)

Thanks again, you guys are awesome

Hi all, I've been following this post as well as others, and am having a dog of a time trying to get the orbitor installed on my N800. The main problem I have is I dont understand what "dependenses" are needed. If I just download the ones stated via the LINUXMCE wiki, when i install the
it says i am missing some dependencies.

I also have a hard time figuring out the files from the maemo garage.

they have files listed for the respective OS2005-2008, so I would have thought all the needed files would be under each OS version, but it doesnt seem that way.  Does anyone have a clear cut answer here? It seems that a lot of you have been able to get it to work, so I must be missing something big here. After spending about 3 days on this, I figure i'd give a shot at asking. Thanks for any help that you can give.


Users / Re: unable to connect to Admin

You could have a look at some of the logfiles under /var/log/pluto to see if you can find any errors there.

Hi, thanks for the tip, I will see what I can do, but I dont think I will be able to access the info, since I cant even start the Kubuntu Desktop through LinuxMCE. It gives me some sort of error.  I will see what I can find though.

Has anyone else had this problem? I have been having issues connecting to the Admin either directly on my hybrid, or on any computer connected to the network. Ever since I did a hard reboot, I get a prompt stating that asterisk didnt load, and then I am unable to load into kunbutu, or log onto the admin.  Any ideas before I do a reinstall?
Thanks in advance, everyone on this site has been so helpful thus far with any questions I have posted, and I greatly appreciate it.  Thanks,

Users / Re: Attaching USB harddrive to CORE - see it on the network?
« on: December 07, 2007, 09:48:13 pm »
thanks all, i completely forgot that 7.04 couldnt write to NTFS partitions (since i've updated to ubuntu 7.10) and MCE has yet to catch up.  I am not sure if that is the true cause, but good enough reason for me. I will see what I can find, and thanks for the input.

Users / Attaching USB harddrive to CORE - see it on the network?
« on: December 06, 2007, 11:11:49 pm »
I hope someone here can help me out, since I am having a bear of a time finding it through the WIKI and forum.  I have External USB Hard Drive enclosure that I have been using to store all my DIVX movies mp3s etc (NTFS) and I figured I could connect it to my CORE and be able to retreive the files on any computer via the network.  Problem is I cant seem to find the drives anywhere. Unless I am booted in Ubuntu using my main desktop in my office (cant see it in XP).  Is there somethign specific I am supposed to do?

Any thoughts would be great.  Also has anyone found it a little difficult/complicated to view movies/files etc through the LinuxMCE gui on attached storage devices?


Installation issues / Re: Media Directors wont install
« on: October 11, 2007, 07:09:53 am »
Thanks all for the responses
I ended up buying an IBM network card that has the PXE built in, and it worked fine. Well it was working fine. I had it dual booting Vista and PXEbooting LinuxMCE, but one day I dont remember what I did, and I rebooted directly to Windows or something. Since then I couldnt reboot into LinuxMCE. I removed the Media Director from the Core, and tried to reinstall it with the wizard, but nada. I was considering trying to install it manually, but I think I may just redo the whole core install.

I also just put together a new shuttle XPC comp AMD64x2. The mobo supports PXE booting, but I cant seem to get it to work right either. dunno what the whoah is... but alas, i will keep trying when I find the time. I thought I'd have my whole house all networked together by now.

The one good thing so far is I have the core running as a router, and it hasnt really quit on me yet, unlike the belkin/netgear etc routers that I have to reset every now and then.

Thanks again all,

On my current attempt at a HTPC, i have a
NETGEAR FA311/312 PCI Adapter


ps I am currently looking in to bootable PXE solutions such as etherboot. Will post how that goes.

AFter further reading online, I think the issue may be that my NIC cards do not have PXE or what not. I will try getting a NIC with PXE capabilities.

Installation issues / Media Directors wont install
« on: September 08, 2007, 06:28:06 am »
Hello all, first time linux user here,
 after 2 weeks of fiddling with installing, reinstalling, connecting, unconnecting, reconnecting... i still can not get any diskless media directors installed. I dont think it is my router/core having conflicts.
I have my
Cable Modem connected to a --> wireless router which is then connected to my --> Core/Hybrid on the "external network card" and then I have my "internal network card" connected to a ethernet switch which i have connected another comp, which is supposed to be the MD.

I've also disconnected the wireless router to see if that was the problem, and I dont think it is.  Whenever I connect a comp to the internal network and do a "network boot" (by switching my boot profile in my bios), my CORE does not automatically recognize anything. I would have thought that when the computer tries to access the DHCP server it would recognize something, but nada. I am thinking maybe it's the network booting not network booting, but I've tried it on my intended media director, I tried it on 2 different laptops (more current) that have network boot options.  Now I am spend. Not sure what else to do at the moment, so if anyone has any suggestions, please throw it my way.

Gratias Ago,
