Installation issues / How does one set up a core from DVD?
« on: August 20, 2008, 08:26:10 pm »
I'm trying to set up a home automation system. I currently have 2 computers - one is to be a core located in the basement, the other a media station in the living room. Later I plan to add lighting, security, temperature and sprinkler control.
I've downloaded and burned the linuxmce 7.10 DVD. During install it never asks if the computer is to be used as a core, media station, or hybrid. It just asks for the hard drive to install, then a password. Then after a while it reboots into the video/audio setup and finally Sara comes up with the "if you can see and hear me" wizard. I also notice that the MCE Launch Manager has checks for both "Autostart Core" and "Autostart Media Station" which seems to indicate that I've mistakenly created a hybrid. I've searched for how to create a clean core and found this link.

Oh my aching head! Is it really this difficult to create a core? I thought I was trying to set up my system the way it was designed to work.
