First time on this board, so excuse me if I need to find my way and perhaps ask stupid questions..
I succesfully managed to install LinuxMCE on a Dell Optiplex 670 with its original nvidia VGA onboard.
As this card has no S-Video output I have replaced it with a NX8600GT card.
1. Problem is that upon booting X does not properly appear.
First I see the Kubuntu loading sign.
Then after some beeping the Linux MCE launch manager appears...
Next the screens turns black.
Also, in Launch Manager the UI type selection possibility is not present. I can run the UI diagnostics tool allright..
I intend to firstly use the system as a hybrid and would like to connect TV via S-Video.
2. Another point is I would like to reconfigure remote drives being connected. How can I do this?
During install, Linux MCE picks up all my smb shares.
Apparently something keeps these from properly mounting, but it takes a lot of CPU while MCE is trying to mount all these...
How can I remove them?
3. Is there a way F7 / F?? to switch between Kubuntu desktop and MCE interface?
Thanks for helping out, and most of all thanks for wonderfull LinuxMCE!!
