Users / troubleshoot : system hangs need help [solved for now]
« on: July 21, 2010, 06:01:08 pm »
Hello guys,

I have been using linuxmce since a while now. my system core/hybrid 8.10 is running just fine. Except there is one little problem. And I dont know how should I solve it.

The Problem : system starts and runs just normal in the evening, next day morning when I wake up, I see it hanged. I cannot move cursor nothing. Only thing I have to do is hard reboot meaning turn it off by holding power key and turn back on after a while.  Sounds like heat issue but my case is running almost 6 fans !!

MY guess : unfortunately I have refurbished 8800GT and I am guessing that after a while the GPU is dying.

I dont know how to read logs. If someone can guide me through. how can i find out what is going on?

thank you all in advance.

take it easy. :)

Here is the link for 1600 set up. just follow the link from backend setup. People say V4L drivers are better but I am still using IVTV. You can choose either and play around.

A little word : do not set up via sara. I am not using device template for the card. I followed this tutorial to setup my tuner card.

Dear users,   

there used to be a myth that plasma leaves burn marks but in lmce there is screen saver all the time. So I dont think we may have that issue.

with this in mind. if someone can contribute their knowledge about selecting best tv with better control in lmce and no compromise in quality @ good price.

any input will be highly appreciated.

what are the pro and cone of selecting plasma TV?

Thanks in advance. ???

I am happy to see this thread up.

Please post a list of TVs that has RS232 connection/ that has device templets for Linuxmce.
I am very interested list on Sony if someone posts.

I know some are fond of plasma. And with screen saver on, for plasma is not a bad option (less risk or burning phosphers ) correct me if I am wrong.

I am looking forward to see any replies on here.

thank you all.

This is what I know.

To know what version you are running you need to run in terminal.
uname -r 

that will give you your kernel version.

to upgrade. 

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Note: doing dist-upgrade can break some programs specially once the linuxmce is up and running. I am not expert but that is what i learned from experience. They say you only need to run it once. its up to you.

Hope this helps.

Installation issues / Re: Netboot - Can't open /tmp/net-eth0.conf
« on: April 03, 2010, 08:31:10 pm »
I just built my core few days ago. I have uname -r .17 generic.

I tried to netBoot an MD and got to same problem as this thread started. Unfortunately I had realtek r8169 chipset on my MD.  I know there are forum post and a wiki page for it but Its beyond my understanding.

If you solve this issue Please mentions the step by step approach to follow.

Once again, even this thread is going above my head. Its hard for a normal user to follow what you guys are talking about.

I hope you understand my situation.

Thank you.

Are you sure that the HDMI cable is functional ? are you using HDMI to HDMI or some other combination ?

Please drop a line about your TV model.

Thanks.
