Installation issues / Re: No HDMI video out
« on: September 07, 2013, 02:14:47 pm »
Just read another thread about this.  You really need to make sure you have an internet connection while installing.  I think that will solve your headache.

Hrmm.  That is alot to take in.  If I am understanding correctly you are plugging in both a monitor and a tv at the same time during install.  First some nvidia hdmi stuff needs some tweaking.  My approach would be to use a dvi to hdmi adapter and plug it to the tv hdmi.  Use just one tv and no monitor.  Try that and see if that works.  Also I noticed your nvidia is 260 which leads me to believe that you have no internet connection during install.  Which will update those drivers and other things.  Once you get it installed it will be much easier to get the rest working.  If you dont feel like doing that read the gt430 thread on this board.  Centralmedia just went through the same thing.

The r8169 driver has been a problem for a long time.  Realtek is kinda dutty with linux.  I am having issues with my realtek soundcard at the moment.  The drivers always need some stupid tweak.  For me the tweak breaks linuxmce 1204.  :(  anyway for your situation try the r8168 driver.  and blacklist the 8169 driver.  this will most likely break something but its worth a shot.  I would first try and blacklist the r8169 driver and reboot.  Then try what is below.

# download driver for r8168, and unpack

# go to driver location
cd r8168-8.020.00/
sudo rmmod r8169
sudo mv /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/net/r8169.ko ~/r8169.ko.backup
make clean modules
sudo make install
sudo depmod -a
sudo insmod ./src/r8168.ko
sudo mv /initrd.img ~/initrd.img.backup
sudo mkinitramfs -o /boot/initrd.img-`uname -r` `uname -r`
sudo echo "r8168" >> sudo /etc/modules
lspci -v
sudo reboot

Yeah the disk by uuid and rootfs seemed odd to me.  I read about it.  Not a big deal.

Finally tested the system out.  Got some major issues.  Can't play movies or music.  Can't mount anything.  Got some graphic blips too.  Stuff just goes missing then comes back. Internet works though.  Youtube etc.  L3top, L3mce!  Help a brother out!

I just installed 12.04, the script works great.  I could not really discern what it did (other than download some new stuff) as the boot prompts are fast.  It did not break anything.  Let me know if there are any logs or such I can post for you.  Thank You for hard work l3mce.

Well everything went very well. All I had to do was remove pulseaudio to get my sound working.  The only problem I am dealing with now is my external drive seems to be locked or unmountable for some reason.  I have not tried out playing movies and audio yet because of the external drive issue.  I am going to pop in a movie in the dvd drive and play some music to test it out and will report back.  I also used l3mce script.  Works like a champ.  So minor issues so far.   ;D ;D

I am getting everything ready to install 12.04 tonight.  Wanted to get input from the dev team so I can provide as much information as possible.  I saw l3mce's post and will provide info on that.  Is there anything else specifically that can help as far as logs, methods, etc?

Was gonna say I noticed latest nvidia and alsa 24 installed on my box during first boot, before setup.  Does not happen with no internet.

You guys probably already know this.  But you can set the time out in the media directors page in web admin.  I set mine to 30000 or 8 hours.

Awesome, I will install 12.04 and help anyway I can.  I don't have much equipment to test but am glad to test what i have. 


I will get to it.  I have a vacation starting on the 9th.  So will hopefully have it done by that weekend.  If not sooner.

Thank You for the advice phenigma and golgoj4.

I would like to start giving back to the LMCE community.  I am learning scripting, don't have knowledge of a language as of yet.  One of the hardest things I am finding about learning scripting is coming up with practical applications.  I was thinking I could give back a little, learn more about LMCE and scripting at the same time.  I don't know how much of this kind of work is around, but if someone needs something let me know.  I will be more than happy to take a stab at it.

mkbrown is right the block size is off by 4000 KB.  That was sdf, which was never part of the raid.  I checked the thread again and that has been the case all along for that drive.  Looks like we need to delete the partition with fdisk not just format it.  Follow these instructions to just delete the partition.
Do not create a new partition just save and exit once deleted.

stop the raid mdadm --stop /dev/md1

then run this command, this is the easy way.

 sfdisk -d /dev/sdd | sfdisk /dev/sde

then format it using mkfs

then add
