BS, doesn't that stand for Bachelor of Science? :P I'm sure that's what you're thinking of...

What kind of errors did you get with BS selected?  I don't see why that would change anything.

Sounds to me like you should try and buy a DT that isn't scratched, or get some glossy metal paint and take care of that.  :P

Installation issues / Re: LinuxMCE factory reset wanted
« on: August 26, 2009, 07:07:36 pm »
You're doing it all wrong... :P

First, there is no root password in Ubuntu.  This is done on purpose to keep you from completely hosing your install and for security.  The only way to perform root-privileged actions is to use sudo as a "su-do-er".  If you Log in with the user name and password you picked during installation you are a sudoer.

Do not edit /etc/networks/interfaces - it is generated by LinuxMCE.  Go to the web admin and switch your interfaces and watch what happens to all your changes.

The reason you have eth3 and not eth1 is because of the udev rules which assign such names to devices.  Search the forums and you'll see how to fix that quite easily.

The reason everything else about your network setup is busted (even if you haven't noticed yet, it is) is that all the configuration files that depend on your network adapter name are now pointing to a non-existent device.  This needs to be corrected.  Either reinstall with the current hardware setup, or take some hints from this page as to what needs to be corrected:  You can consider "eth0:0" to be your "wlan0" for most of that.  Use your judgment - it's not a perfect process and hasn't been updated in a while.

0810 is pretty stable in my experience, and the install procedure isn't too hard.  I would suggest it over 0710, since there are quite a few new features, tons of fixes, and much better hardware support.  Everything you need to know is well documented on the alpha wiki page. Of course, 0710 is still the "official" release, and it's a bit easier to install with the DVD, but it's getting a bit old so hardware support is lacking.

I'm not sure what you mean by "LMCEs wiki" being different from "wiki's LinuxMCE entry".

Yes, 512MB is not really enough.  1-2GB is more realistic.

if you can have a look at this thread: i would really appreciate it.  you can see what ive tried.

...From those posts it looks like your issue is solved.  It's really not that difficult - just follow the directions on the installation and network setup pages... If you try to do things that don't line up with what those tell you to do, you can expect things to break.

eth0:1 is an aliased device.  The hardware used is eth0, but you can use it as a separate interface.  You should NOT have aliased devices with LinuxMCE - this will case lots of network problems.

You should install Kubuntu and LinuxMCE after you install both NICs.  Read other posts and the FAQ for more details.

You're going to have to be significantly more specific about what your problems are and what you've done...

Use the information here:

You should have something like this:
[Internet Modem] -->  (WAN Port)[Router (Connect devices here for the External network)](LAN Ports) <-- [LinuxMCE External NIC - eth0]
[LinuxMCE Internal NIC - eth1] --> (LAN Ports)[Switch (Connect devices here for Internal network)]

Note that "Switch" should not be running ANY network services such as DHCP or DNS.

You will have to do additional setup to get devices or web access working from outside the home, since there is an additional firewall in the way now.

As per this ticket:

It is not possible to swap NICs other than eth0 and eth1.  There is a patch on the ticket to swap other interfaces, but it was not included in the current code (and probably will not be any time soon) because the only "officially" supported configuration is one with exactly two wired NICs.  The patch probably will have unforeseen consequences, and it is not well tested.

As colinjones says, you're kind of on your own in this space.

This is great - I've been wanting this feature for a while.  Maybe some diagnostic tools - like a "ping this host" button?  Very nice work, thanks.

If you're worried about exposing the core, then connect the external NIC to your existing network instead of directly to the internet connection.

Users / Re: Win Orbiter IP Shortcut- "dcerouter" not ip address
« on: August 20, 2009, 04:56:48 pm »
If you want to be really tricky, you could just set the external network address of the core to a static IP...

Even trickier - set up advanced routing rules on your external network to access the internal network using the core as a gateway to the 192.168.80.x address space.

But then again, you could just do it the correct and simple way, and use the internal network for all devices that are talking to the core - since that's how it's supposed to work, and that's how the configuration is set up for you automatically.

Look in /var/log/pluto especially at DCERouter.log, LaunchManager.log, and LaunchManager.process.log.  Use the data there to answer the following questions:
1) Is DCERouter starting and failing, or not starting at all? (use the timestamps to determine)  Provide any errors
2) Is the LaunchManager doing something that takes a particularly long time, or getting hung up on something?
3) Is LaunchManager looping trying to connect to the router forever?

If DCERouter simply isn't starting, but LaunchManager is doing its thing normally, I had a similar issue recently - the root cause was that a bunch of lock files weren't cleaned up properly when someone pulled the power cord on my core.  I don't remember where they were off the top of my head - I think there were some in /var/run and /usr/pluto/lock

There is code for a Linux Orbiter, and it has been compiled and run on several devices, but there is no installer or deb package available right now.  Try the web orbiter:

I don't care about follow-me, but having the rest would be nice.

Users / Re: 810 Alpha 7 No DVD playback sound
« on: August 14, 2009, 11:09:17 pm »
I expect you won't.  I do not.  There is something wrong with the way sound devices on the m2n and m3n get configured for digital out.  I haven't had the time to dive into it.
