While that is true, I'm afraid I still need it. :P

Installation issues / 12.04 install report
« on: November 16, 2014, 08:00:34 pm »
So I finally took the plunge.
at first I tried the DVD install, but that didn't seem to work out for me. In order to boot my computer with 12.04 I needed to run with bootoption
Quote
nomodeset
. It looks to me that the installer does not care much for that.
Next I installed kubuntu 12.04 and went with the internet- install. The avwizard  came up, but it was enlarged over the whole screen. I edited xorg.conf and changed "Nvidia" to "nv" in the driver section. Another reboot and the wizard went through.
however my clients didn't get their IPs.
I found the following:
Networksettings in webadmin were correct
Ifconfig showed for eth0 192.168.80.0 , which was not correct
Pushing update in the webadmin, without any changes, updated the IP of the nic.
dhcp still not running, showing showed "cannot access /etc/bind/rndc.key permission denied"
Adding "/etc/bind r, " as well as "/etc/bind/ ** r," did the trick

Next thing was tv-card (Hauppauge nova hd-s2)
firmware did not get installed (linux-firmware-nonfree)
had to manually mal videoconnections in order to get tv playback, otherwise mythic would claim that all tuners were busy.

Md creation was straightforward

That's it so far, tomorrow I will check telecom and report back
Cheers
Ok, one more thing
I've scanned for tv stations probably 10 times already and every time rtl television is missing...I don't get it...anyone from Germany, who could help?

Ok, it appears to be a graphics-issue. I edited the bootoptions on a 12.04 kubuntu livedisk to boot with --nomodeset and it booted.
now my remaining question would be, if it's safe to try an install with this, or if it's going to bite me in the ass?

I feared as much....if it's only a graphics card issue, I will try another one. I don't think it's the mainboard, because I believe I saw some  forums where this one is reported as working with 12.04.
by the way, I checked the md5sums on the iso and the DVD...they are ok

I just tried the image on my regular Windows-machine tried the live option and there it worked nicely. I'm quite mystified why it won't boot on my server hardware, where 10.04 continues to run nicely.

No, I did not check the md5....but I don't think it's a problem of the lmce image. I tried several ordinary kubuntu images, but none worked.

Installation issues / can't run 12.04 [solved]
« on: November 03, 2014, 03:03:15 pm »
It seems I would have to wait a little longer to test some new version of lmce. I'm running 10.04 quite nicely, but I got curious about 12.04 since the nice video with the rpi. Anyway I cannot get anything from 12.04 to run. On my hardware (phenom quad-core, Asus m2n-sli deluxe with bios 1804, kingston ssd v300 with latest firmware, nvidia gt610 and 2x2tb hard drives). It boots, then after a while the CD just rumbles away...and then stops. Not even a lives does the trick. However I tried 14.04 as a live CD..works like a charm.

Hm, my hands are getting itchy to try 12.04, but I am a bit hesitant. So I was wondering, if you have a rough estimate for a beta....I won't hold you to a date....

I'm sorry, but as I rwad, there are a lot of scripts in lmce build on bash and your post seems to suggest to change bash to dash...I'm not too comfortable with that, so do you have an idea how I could upgrade bash? I have the exact same problem  as the starter of this thread.

I just downloaded the latest build of qt5 qorbiter. It downloaded ministro-libs again, but in the end said, ministro could not provide dependencies and closed

I recently found out, that I have the exact same problem. International calls via lmce are not possible. I have another sip-phone directly connected to my fritzbox and I can place Calls to anywhere.

When watching videos on YouTube with 10.04 I still got "smurf tv". I tried setting the installed Firefox to html5 for video playback...which works insofar, that it's not bluish anymore, but I traded the sound for it. Any Ideas?

Users / thinking about new av receiver
« on: July 29, 2014, 11:42:28 pm »
I was wondering, since my current again receiver is getting long in the tooth, what I would buy as a replacement. I figure a ethernet-port would not be a bad idea.
So what do you guys think....got some suggestions?
