Installation issues / Problem with AVWizard in beta2
« on: January 04, 2010, 12:35:13 am »

I'm trying to install 810 beta2 now on my desktop with Geforce 9400GT, and it's also a built in radeon card on the motherboard (don't know if this might be the reason to the problem I'm getting.)
It's connected with a HDMI cable to my 40" TV, have also tried with my dvi > hdmi-cable with the same res
Well after the fresh Install of kubuntu 810 and the linuxmce installations without any errors, then I get my problem when I'm trying with the AVwizard.
To get the AVWizard to the screen I have pressed all 1-5 buttons and the only one that's working is 4 for component, then it's started and I can choose whatever I want but if I choose anything else than component I will come back to this message on the TV that's it's no input signal.
Well if choose Component I only have two options that HD480p and HD720p, so I choose 720p and move on.
On the audio site comes my other problem, I choose analog audio and when I press "ok" I will get back to screen one again, if I choose no audio input I will be able to move on again.
When all the orbiter installations is done I will come to a black screen with just the pointer.

I have tried to change to driver "vesa" instead of nvidia in xorg and that the same problem.

Anyone who got any tips about this problem?

Best Regards

Hmm ok.. I thought about that but I have two partitions on my computer one mounted as / and one /home and I got lot's of stuff on my home disc.
If I reinstall my computer and choose to not format the home partition, when I install linuxmce 810 what will happen to my files?

I've got some problems with my linuxmce installation. I've got it running and almost everything worked as I wanted, until I messed it up. :)

My mayor problem right now it that I've deleted my onscreen orbiter, so I've just got a black screen and my pointer. I did this because I've done it before and then it just poped up again after a reboot, well this didn't happen now. When I go to Wizard > devices < orbiters > this screen is empty but when I try to add a new orbiter I get this message "ERROR: Error creating device. Be sure LinuxMCE is running." I have restarted the computer a few times.
The reason I deleted the onscreen orbiter is that I had the same problem before I deleted it, a black screen with the pointer, don't know how this started..

Another problem I have is that I never have got the HDMI cable to work, right now I use a DVI > HDMI cable and that works fine after pressing 1 before running the display wizard.

Thanks very much!

I installed kubuntu 810 and it seems to be working very well with kde on the hdmi output. Though I didn't complete the installation by installing linuxmce on 810, my girlfriend have been taking all my time recently. :)

My question before I continue tonight is, is linuxmce working on kubuntu 904 aswell? I have searched for that on google but haven't really found an answer.

I'm using  710, is the alpha better? Actually I didn't know about that version. :D

Well I've done some more testing about this..
1: I cannot come in to AV wizard with neither dvi > hdmi cable or hdmi cable, then I get message "cannot start X". The nvidia drivers seems fine for me, I can use 1920x1080 etc.
2: I think it has something to do with the horizontal and vertical settings in xorg, right now I don't know what I'm using there since I'm at work. :( What should I have on the horizontal and vertical settings? I have a Samsung 40" LED TV.
My screen is "cropped" in the left and the lower side of the screen. I guess this is fixed if I change these settings aswell.

To start I'm fairly new to both Linux and Linuxmce, but I would really like to learn Linux better. I got an old HP DC7600 from my work that I have tried to install Linuxmce on. To add performance I've bought 2gb RAM, 1tb harddrive and a GeForce 9400GT 1024mb.

First I had very much problems to get the nvidia drivers and the xorg file to work, but finally it's starting with the nvidia drivers and not the VESA drivers and I can set the resolution to 1920x1080. Everything seems to work fine except that the hdmi output is not working, well it's working until I start x and then my samung TV says "no signal", it's working when I have a dvi > hdmi cable.

The HDMI cable is working fine on all other sessions except tty6 or something were the X session is, there I just got this "no signal" on the TV.
One thing is that my motherboard doesn't have a spdif output so I can't connect the spdif cable to my GeForce 9400GT.

Thanks very much if someone can help me with this. I can come back with more information when I come home, now I'm at work.
