make sure you disable your onboard NICs completely when you are using plugin NICs (PCI or USB) on a media director.

I want to get LinuxMCE running in my home!
Good idea
I want to have a Core/Hybrid in my livingroom and several MD´s!
What hardware do i need or are there any assembled systems?

Where in Europe are you located?

I want to control my light´s via KNX/EIB (installed)!

A TouchPad control in ervery room build-in the wall!

Two choices: Either some of the newer in-wall ARM based machines hari played with (i don't know, how far he went), or, my idea, a wall mounted Cisco 7970.

Hello, will linuxmce 8.10 be bound to kubuntu 8.10 as with linuxmce 7.10 and kubuntu 7.10?  Will users be able to use other versions of ubuntu or another os with the upcoming linuxmce release? 

LinuxMCE 810 will be bound to Kubuntu 810 the same way LinuxMCE 710 is bound to Kubunt 710

Code: [Select]
06:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corp.| (nv)

This looks absolutely correct, and should have installed the nvidia-glx-180 driver.

hmm. Strange.

Regarding USB 2 Serial. This has been fixed since   20090515 (alpha2.20). At least we have lots of people reporting success detecting USB ZWave sticks, USB UIRT, and I myself got my USB-2-2xSerial detected.

As the android has a web browser on it, you can use the web orbiter with the android.

Need some advice[...]

You might want to open a new thread, and not hijack this one ;)

please send the output of lshwd not lshw


if libdvdcss is installed on the core, each subsequent MD creation will contain the libdvdcss as well.
Will 810 copy over the addons you install on the core over to newly created MDs

This is only true for the libdvdcss2

my user_8 and user_9 were generated after the drives were added. I found that LinuxMCE automagically made the subdirectories as you described above.
But in the case of public, there is a subdir (also in your overview above), or rather a symlink, to specific drives.
I am wondering how I obtain that situation in user_9.

Try rebooting.

1) I had to manually tweak udev naming rules for my network *before* running the LinuxMCE installer for my external network was detected as eth1 while the internal one was eth0. The installer produced a lot of errors on setting up dhcp an such.
At the moment, the installer is quite picky. eth0, or eth0 and eth1, are needed.
2) After rebooting into LinuxMCE my keyboard layout was changed (DE -> US). no idea why that happened (or if it is necessary :))
You should be able to change that in the web admin under keyboard layout.
3) The install did not install the nvidia drivers (as it should do according to the front page article) my system is still running on nv driver instead.
Interesting. Would you mind pasting the output of lspci and lshwd.
What am I to do with the video driver? is it safe to use KDE desktop to install nvidia restricted driver (version 180)?
Should not cause too many problems, but again, it surprises me, that it was not done originally.


if libdvdcss is installed on the core, each subsequent MD creation will contain the libdvdcss as well.

e. Had display issue on reboot - "out of frequency" error.  Installed Nvidia 180 drivers; There after AVWizard says "Failed to Setup X". Changed /etc/X11/xorg.conf file to use vesa instead of nvidia. (

The out of frequency issue should have been resolvable by pressing one of the numeric keys, as pointed out in the wiki [url][/url]. The nVidia driver is automatically installed.

Installation issues / Re: login as root on md

To get to the MD root prompt, you login into the core as the user you have used during your Kubuntu install. After that do the following steps:
Code: [Select]
sudo -i
This will prompt you for the password of the user who you initially created during the Kubuntu installation
Code: [Select]
ssh moon<device-id-of-mediadirector>


two quick notes on pigdogs message:

  • The switching to the text mode is not really necessary. And if you do not switch to text mode, you don't need to switch back into graphics mode after that either. It is purely for your entertainment to see all the bytes fly by :)
  • Our forum software has the ability to use lists. It makes things a lot easier on the eyes to use those (as I have done in this post to highlight it)  ;)
