Yes the Large screen problem is connected through a dvi to vga adapter.  For the nvidia cards, I just tried rebooting it 4 or 5 times after a failed to get x.  Each time it would never install the drivers.  The last time between reboots I ran apt-get update and then rebooted, after that the nvidia drivers installed. one more failed to startx reboot and av wizard came up.  I think I'm gonna run this install as my daily for now. 4 mds running plus the md on the core, along with a cm11a and a dozen X10 switches, motion detectors, and lamp modules.

Downloading 5961 right now.  If I get sometime tomorrow I will give that a try.

Have 5955 installed on the core.  No problems at all.  just shy of an hour for a complete install.  First MD running diskless setup right now a Revo 1600.  I still get a failed to start x.  Rebooted and failed to start x.

Edit:   I ran the EEE Box b202 and that completed.  The first 2 screens of the AV wizard were way to large.  I could only see maybe a quarter of the screen, but managed to get through the wizard.  I finished the Sarah setup just waiting on the installing part.   I am sure it will finish to the orbiter.  Trying an onboard ATI Radeon 3000 right now.  Also a failed to start x.  I also tried another Nvidia based system, onboard 6100, and Failed to start x.  So only the Intel worked.

The EEE Box works fine.

Managed to get the Revo to display the AV Wizard.  The Nvidia drivers are failing to install.  I had to apt-get install nvidia-260-kernel-source. gave me a error that it couldnt install dkms.  I apt-get update, apt-get install dkms. Then apt-get install nvidia-260-kernel-source, rebooted and then AV wizard came up. Finished the setup and The first Revo is up and running.

Edit again.

My second revo also came up with failed to start x.  I opened a terminal up and apt-get update and upgrade.  It downloaded some updates.  restarted it and it started installing the nvidia drivers.  failed to start x, rebooted and AV Wizard came up.

Also I have always chroot to the md and passwd so I can ssh to the md's as root.  I did it and when I ssh to any md, I get Bad owner or permissions on /root/.ssh/config.

I would think this topic would be pretty big. Less then an hour to have a fully installed and running core. Then another 20 or so for each md. Thats a pretty quick install compared to a kubuntu network install. Only takes me about 40 minutes to download the larger ISO. If you want to keep making them I can test. I have an empty 40gig drive in the core.  Most of my machines are nvidia based, except for an Intel in a eee box.



Edit. I might even have an onboard ati somewhere. I have been using LinuxMCE for a while. I played with 7.04. Used 7.10 when it first came out. So its been years. So if you want to keep putting out snap shots the least I can do is test most of them.

pedlar: I figured out what I did. The new snapshot should have all of this resolved.

So the revo should finish now.  I will download it in the morning when I get out of work. Probably wont be until Friday evening (eastern time) when I will be able to test it for you.

Is anyone else even testing these on a regular basis?

This is the second report of this... and I haven't quite figured out why. It appears that
1) The core isn't online when the initial detection is done, so my nouveau backup is not working or you wouldn't get the first failure, you would be using nouveau and not know it unless you looked.
2) The nVidia driver is installed, but the required reboot is not triggered, so it fails again because of the conflict between the nouveau and nVidia
3) nVidia is installed, and reboot happened (manually) so it fires.

Thank you for the feedback on that. I will figure out wtf is going on for sure.
MD never finishing... no clue. I assume you have rebooted it?

Yes I rebooted it a few times just to.make sure. I should have tried another MD but figured the revos have always been the easiest to setup.

Had a problem with failed to startx on the core. Rebooted and it installed the Nvidia driver failed to startx a second time.  Rebooted a third time and AV wizard came up. I was able to finish setting the core up.  Now trying the revo for the first MD.  SSH  does work now. Will update when the MD finishes.

MD never finishes.  Makes it through the av wizard and just hangs at black screen with white cursor.

Couldnt get the MD to finish. On first boot failed to set up x. Rebooted it and the AV wizard came up. That's as far as I got. Just sits there with black screen with the white cursor.  Its a Acer revo 1600.

Using LMCE-1004-20120429132625935.iso.  Hybrid install works.  Have 2 MDs up and running  I had to run Diskless_CreateTBZ, otherwise no MDs would boot.  The other MD is stuck at 640x480 cant get AV wizard to run on it.  Its an intel graphics.  Tried to delete the xorg.conf, but still cant get the AV wizard to start.  Anytime I start an MD up, Both of my internal hard drives go off line. Need to log in to webadmin and tick back online and quick reload of router.
