Installation issues / Re: eee-box 202 and lmce 8.10
« on: August 05, 2009, 10:10:06 am »
I followed the instructions, as they were written down
aptitude update
aptitude dist-upgrade
then I did a reboot, downloaded the script, unpacked it and let them run in the prescribed order

hmm...I'm beginning to get superstitious. Perhaps I should download Kubuntu again. I downloaded it from a german mirror, maybe there is something up with that. I simply don't know whatelse could cause this.

The RaLink device is probably the wireless adapter...I switched mine off since I updated the BIOS last week. Before this option wasn't available.

perhaps my choice of words was not quite right: I cannot create an account to login to the wiki (since my forum-login wouldn't work for the wiki┬┤)

it also says :"This reCAPTCHA key isn't authorized for the given domain"

Ok, last night I made a clean install - twice actually. When setting up Kubuntu it always recognized my nics in the wrong order. That has never been a problem, since I could later change it in the webadmin of linuxmce. However last night it caused trouble right in the middle of ./mce-install.sh, when suddenly ip-adresses did not get resolved anymore. So I quickly swapped the cables and after I restarted the script it when through. The next problem was with Orbiter-generation for the hybrid. It crashed and went on without actually generating an orbiter, so I got a message, that the config for the orbiter could not be retrieved. I managed to login to the webadmin and enter the required information. it created an orbiter but could not connect to the dcerouter. just out of curiosity at this point I wanted to see what the eee-box would do. interestingly it went past the nic without a problem, but gave me a mount 13 error. since I could not get the orbiter to cooperate I decided to scrap it all again. What I thought was the critical change that might have gotten the eee-box running was, that I did a reboot after the aptitude dist-upgrade (which was not explicitly mentioned in the install instructions, but which made sense since you update the kernel). So I was full of hope and did it all over again, only this time connecting the internetcable to the right nic, so I would not need to restart the script. After the ./post-install.sh was finished, I just shutdown the core and went to bed. This morning I resumed, but now the eee-box just stubbornly does not want to start, no matter what I tried. Someone suggested to me I should update the kernel to 2.26.28, but I do not think this to be a good long term solution, since the final release of LMCE would not be based on this one. I really do not know what I should do. Is there some script I need to run or something...please let me know.

Trust me, I don't mess it up on purpose. I did a clean install twice, because I thought I missed something or did something wrong..but actually there is not much to do wrong with the procedure as it is: install kubuntu, get the installer,execute the scripts one after another and you're done. In theory this should be enough to get it all started. Thing is...Chris has 2 eee-boxes running nicely...and mine messes up the nic-setup.
So, anything I can do to make it work, I will do within my abilities. Currently this is setup on a separate hdd so I can go back and forth between the releases. I can do a clean install again if that would be required....

one small step for me, one big step for my eee-box :-)
at least I found out how to boot it up again without a keyboard....just switch off the express gate....call me stupid, why I didn't do that earlier already...must have been the nice colors :-)

I tried a bios update on the eee box (release 1111) because I thought that would help. So now not only does it still not work, the box won't even boot up without a keyboard attached to it, and no option in the bios to be found to change that.

I finally got the card working again this is what I did:
http://www.eurocardsharing.com/f273/howto-getting-hvr-4000-nova-hd-cards-working-linux-using-s2api-105681

and it works like a charm :-) The only thing I changed was the firmware, since the url in this tutorial was dead.

Well, I got my system up and running in 81.0 now :-) wonders never cease.
I even got my TV-Card running...the only thing there is, I need to find the rest of the stations, but that will sort itself out.

Now the biggest gripe I have is this:
Quote
/init: .: Can't open /tmp/net-eth0.conf
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempting to kill init!
Seems to me like I am one of the unlucky ones whose eee-box isn't supported out of the box yet
so I will try the old manual procedure to setup the nic.
I hope it will work, otherwise I'd really like to know what I else could do.

--------------Update-------------
I can't get the box over the above mentioned point....So if anyone knows something...please, some help would be appreciated

that would be interesting...perhaps I can find out, where I went wrong. This friday I'm planning to try another run since my system is a bit fubar, but I'm not sure if I should try 8.10 again. In theory I should get my eee-box running the same way you do..so lets see

Installation issues / [SOLVED- at last]eee-box 202 and lmce 8.10
« on: July 21, 2009, 07:28:43 pm »
Last weekend I tried my luck with the latest 8.10 alpha. I installed it on my core and after having done that part successfully proceeded setting up my MD (eee-box 202)
As I read here before it should be supported out of the box, since the drivers for the nic have been included now, unlike in 7.10. So I had high hopes and didn't expect much of a problem.
Unfortunately I got a "kernel-panic - not syncing" I got past the message "We announce ourselves to the core"...shortly before the kernel-panic I noticed eth0 link down.
I read here in the forum, that there might be some issue with ACPI, so I went to the Bios and changed the value (don't remember if it was enabled or disabled) and tried again-without luck

So does anyone here have a eee-box running successfully with 8.10 and if so- how did you make it?
