Nice.  The USB drive method is much faster as well!

Yeah...  the snapshots have not been creating properly.  The Feb 23 snap is no different.  Working through the issues, hopefully have a shiny new snap very soon.

We have identified an issue with snapshot building that has affected the snaps over the last 4 weeks.  We are working to resolve the problem and will hopefully have a shiny new snap very soon.

:)  no problem.  We have identified an issue with the snapshot builder that has prevented updates from the last 4 weeks actually hitting the snapshot.  Working through the issues, hopefully have a shiny new snap today or tomorrow.

I want to use mythtv but don't consider it usable within lmce.  I long for schedulesdirect and myth scheduling... it's SO much better than my satellite providers interface and capabilities!

jamo, I have tested the Feb 21 snapshot.  It has, for some reason, been built with old versions of the dvd creation scripts.  There are a few known issues, including a networking bug, in the old versions of the dvd creations scripts.  I'm not sure why this has happened. 

I cannot predict what oddities will occur on this snapshot, I consider it to be bad snap though.

You can use the zsync utility (apt-get install zsync) to download successive snapshots but only download the portions that have changed.  This can bring a new snapshot with often <1GB  of data transfer, compared to >3GB for a full snapshot download.

I will check and test this today.  Thank you for pasting the errors as they were displayed, that will help a lot!

This may be, again, related to the firewall bug preventing packages from installing.  Maybe.  I recommend waiting for a new snapshot and testing with it.

Thanks for testing!

This could all be caused by the firewall bug that was found last night.  I suggest waiting for a new snapshot.

The id3 files are not required, but it is how lmce stores metadata about files.

Installation issues / Re: "No internet connection" 12.04 installer (solved)
« on: February 22, 2014, 07:14:13 pm »
Gentlemen.  There was a significant bug found last night in the firewall scripts that is likely causing all of these issues.  DNS is, and has been, working except during the initial stage of the DVD install, where it is *not* required.  If someone wants to help fix the issue we are very open to accepting patches.  I have applied 2 patches from mkbrown69 in the last few weeks (thanks mkbrown69!) and I will continue to do so.

Please wait for a new snapshot to be produced and do not use the current snapshot.  Thanks for testing guys!

Installation issues / Re: "No internet connection" 12.04 installer (solved)
« on: February 22, 2014, 12:11:49 am »
Hopefully not premature, but if anyone else hits this gotcha, here's how I fixed it.

The problem: Right in the beginning of the installer, just after language selection, the installer checks requirements and reports on two things- The disk space (8.6Gb required) and the internet connection.

When the screen comes up, my internet connectinons is initially ticked (ie passes the test) and then it turns to a no-entry sign - ie fails the test and then the option to download updates while installing is also disabled.

I traced and resolved the problem as follows:
- "quitting" the installation which took me to an Ubuntu live desktop session
- opened a terminal to check network
- ping worked but no dns -> ie ping www.google.com failed but pinging the IP for www.google.com passed.
- modified /etc/resolv.conf: deleted the existing nameservers and replaced with the address of my local modem-router (192.168.10.1) which, I presume, forwards DNS requests to my ISP's nameservers.
- thereafter I was able to ping www.google.com successfully.
- Then re-ran the LinuxMCE12.04 installation from the desktop icon

This time, when I got to requirements, internet connection stayed clicked and I was able to proceed with installation.

I traced the problem to DNS. For some reason the nameservers specified in /etc/resolv.conf do not work for me so I just replaced them with a pointer to my local adsl-modem-router address (192.168.10.1) and that fixed it.

Jamo can you please paste the contents of resolv.conf as the dvd had it?  I have yet to sync the lastest snap.
