Users / Any news?
« on: March 10, 2011, 11:41:33 pm »
Hey guys, I've been away from linuxmce for a long time and wondered what the latest stable version is.  Last one I knew of was 7.10 and haven't seen any changes to the website in a long time.

We all apreciate your hard work guys, but if you want others to help, we need someone to tell us what to do.  I suggest some form of delegation.  And being specific really helps.

I.E.  A persistent thread with the major issues that need work.  Have each issue link to their own thread and ask people to volunteer to fix a problem they are capable of.  Keep them accountable, choose a team leader for each, have a measurable end goal, and equip those leaders to make decisions congruent with the main devs vision.    Keep em accountable with deadlines or roadmaps and see where that takes you. 

Otherwise, people will only tinker with what they are interested in and the burden will get carried by only a few people, which could easily discourage those few.  This is the dilemma with all open source software.  I may not be able to code, but I think I could lead a team.  But I would need a bit of training, such as how to integrate changes into the master code, how to test without reinstalling a billion time, etc.  If someone would sit down with me and explain those things, I'd be much more likely to help lead a team than to just jump in.

Users / fiire gyro remote 8.10 beta 2
« on: March 06, 2010, 01:17:18 am »
I finally got 8.10 working and have already noticed the stability is miles above what 7.10 was (for my hardware at least).  However, my beloved (and exspensive) gyro remote no longer has gyro functionality.  So two things:

1.) is this just because we're in beta still?
2.) I'll be glad to help test out any new fiire gyro functionality

Installation issues / Endless reboots 8.10 network install
« on: March 05, 2010, 03:30:03 am »
Ok, I've done a network install of beta2.5.  I basically followed the steps exactly as written here

Only thing I changed is I installed the nvidia driver using the gnome install dameon.  Anyway, after rebooting, I get a cycle of endless reboots.  It makes it past the beeps, but the screen resets too fast for me to see anything.  I had to take a video of the process in order to see the message.  Here's what I see.  The video is a bit blurry, so I might have some typos.

kinit: no resume image, doing normal boot...
Error 2002 (a # i can't read) can't connect to local MYSQL server through socket...

Ok, that seems to be the main message I get.  It then says "All MDs are down. Continuing."  Any help guys? also, I just discovered that the torrent is now fixed. I will definitely be trying that method too if this doesn't work out.

Hey guys, I keep looking all over for ANY working download method for 8.10 and can't seem to find any.  Torrent doesn't work, ISOs are offline, and the wiki keeps directing me to download 7.10.  I'm sure there's something out there, but I just can't find it.  Please help

I am using bittorrent 6.4 and the address you posted does not work.  I get a "error offline time out" message.

someone asked about my mythtv control preferences.  Basically, mythtv has alot more features than lmce uses in the standard cube channel guide.  Example, it may be reverse from this (it's been almost a year since I've used lmce) but I like to record seinfeld.  If I recall, the cube channel navigation only told lmce to record the shows on 1 channel.  Since seinfeld is on multiple channels, I had to go through each channel and find an episode of seinfeld.  Also, I didn't find anywhere in lmce to search for a particular show.  In mythtv, I just click a few menus and type in the name.  In lmce, I had to scroll through the channel's entire listing until i found an episode of seinfeld.  Stuff like that.  In mythtv, you can set episode limits, so you ever have 10 episodes of seinfeld and whenever a new one airs, the oldest one gets deleted.  Most of mythtv's power was bypassed for the three button system. 

My soultion was just to grab a keyboard and exit live tv without exiting mythtv.  There are tons of recording options within mythtv that I found useful, like "record in this timeslot each week", "record on any channel at any time", and the ability to exclude reruns and only record new airings. 

Also, the "more options" button in the cube channel guide never seemed to work for me.  But I would like to try 8.10.  Now if only there were a working download/torrent...

Hey guys, I'm willing to leave my bittorrent open pretty much all the time, but need a working torrent link to download.  Do we have one?

Yea, I might just try that.  I have enough linux experience to be dangerous, but linuxmce is much more complex, especially than ubuntu.  Most of my fixes and work arounds avoid editing code at all costs!

Anyway, my stability problems were many.  I'll list them out.

1.)Hard lock ups at random times.  Seemed like if I kept reinstalling over and over, eventually, one of those installs would be stable. 
2.) Mythtv crashes.  I liked to have a little more control over my recordings, so I tried to use the mythtv scheduling instead of linuxmce.  It was difficult to get into the menus and would often bump me back to live tv during this phase.  Also, some setting changes in the mythtv menu would result in a momentary lockup, where I had to press the stop button a bunch of times to get back to the lmce gui.

Those were the big ones.  Little things also kept me away, like the sorting of tv series, which I've heard has been addressed.  I'll definitely be trying this new version out, I just didn't want to dive head first into an unstable beta.  Once I do, I'll make some more videos on youtube.

Hi guys, used linuxmce back in 7.10 and ran into alot of stablity problems.  I am eagerly awaiting a stable build of 8.10 to try it out again.  So, how stable is it?  I don't use any homeautomation, I just watch tv and listen to music.  From the looks of the website, it looks like 8.10 is still in beta.

I'm not sure what I did, but I made sure that the driver in my xorg.conf was listed correctly as "nvidia" and I did a dpkg-reconfig... for xorg.conf.

I've already tried that with now luck.  Oh, and my video card is an nvidia 9 series.  Can't remember exact model
