Installation issues / Re: No Network, new mobo
« on: August 19, 2010, 03:43:12 pm »
in kubuntu 10.04 it worked, no problem, but in the 8.10 LinuxMCE Kubuntu desktop (prior to LMCE install) it doesn't.
meanwhile i read somewhere that if u install lmce, the driver gets updated, but this way i cannot update the kubuntu install like the wiki says. would this be a problem?

Hi, welcome to the forums,

Installation issues / No Network, new mobo
« on: August 19, 2010, 11:48:17 am »

got myself a brand new mobo, gigabyte  GA-770TA-UD3 (onboard nic Realtek 8111D), i installed a second nic (wich worked fine with a prior setup of LinuxMCE)
now i can't get any of the 2 to work,
also made a new network from settingsmenu, no luck

i haven't installed LMCE yet, just installed the kubuntu desktop,
if i install LMCE (without the kubuntu update) will the correct driver be installed automatic?

also installed kubuntu 10.04 and then the onboard nic seemed to work ok

i read at that a kernel-update should be performed, must i do so?
are there any risks?

anybody a idea?

Ok, thanks or your excelent advice, i was already looking into the user setups on the wiki :)
I wanna get a mobo with lots of sata and pcie connectors on it so it can be expanded if i need to,
Been interested in gigabyte 770 and 870 series as they have a lot of connectivity on them.

Thanks a lot,
I will post a wiki of my setup if i get it up and running

ok thanks all for your help,

would it make sense to get a intel instead of a amd system?
if so wich?

thanks Andrew for your clear explanation.
it helps me a lot.

do u recommend a specific cpu, i was thinking in the lines of:
AMD Athlon II X3 400e, Triple-core 2,2GHz
AMD Athlon II X2 235e, Dual-core 2,7GHz

wich is better, more cores or greater Ghz.

All the best,

Hi Andrew,
the real issue with NC30's, or indeed any Atom based Core's, is the Regen processing overhead - the Atom really is not ideal for this type of processing
could u explain more about the regen processing, what exactly is it and what will i notice in every day use?

since my my mobo broke i am looking how to build a new core/hybrid and 1 of the key features would be energy efficienty, this is where the ion performce really well.
but if i have to wait 5 minutes after i press a key, its not worth it.

i am thinking about using 2 or 4 gb of ram will this change anything for the ion?


Installation issues / UPDATE: NVidia GT220, no AVWizard
« on: August 02, 2010, 10:27:24 am »
hi all,

just wanted to give a update,

sadly my core died, i wanted to swap the gt220 for a ati-card wich i had somewhere laying around,
the ati-card slipped through my fingers and landed on my mainboard and broke it.

the good news is, now i have to get another mainboard  ;)
i will get one without onboard graphics  ;D

i was going to get another mainboard anyway because after roughfly 6 weeks of trying,
dispite all the good suggestions and help from you all,
i wasn't able to get it working (wich was very frustrating),

a big thanks to everyone who posted their suggestions and helped me!
(i learned a lot from it)

i will post my new setup when i get it up and running
if someone has a suggestions for a good AM3 mainboard, please let me know.


Installation issues / updating xorg-server/nvidia drivers
« on: July 23, 2010, 09:31:14 pm »
having much trouble installing my nvidia gt220 with the onboard ati X200 gave me an idea.
i thought others may want to do this for their own purpose so i made a new topic.

is there a way to update the xorg-server and the nvidia-driver to the latest and greatest?

if yes could someone please discribe in detail (i'm fairly new to this  ;))

hi after installing LinuxMCE-8.10-23154-i386 snapshot, before installing lmce,
in kubuntu i tried:
apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade,
no updates were installed;
so i changed the pin-priority too 500
but still no updates?!?

any ideas?

New Update!

with lsmod i saw the modules ati_agp and agpgart loaded so blacklisted them;
after this i tried via the webadmin to configure the onscreen orbiter;
i tried DVI, HDMI, HDMI1,... no luck
also the AVWizard could not be used.

so i tried a new install;
after the kubuntu install, before i did anything, i blacklisted the above and yhen tried the 195 driver from nvidia,... still no luck
but strangly if i change driver back to "vesa" in the xorg.conf i get picture...

at the end of the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file there is this message:
"Saw signal 11.  Server aborting."

i have been seeking a solution for this for about 3 weeks.....
anybody any ideas?

hi all, i wanna give u an update as to how far i came along:

first i tried to manually change the xorg.conf file, but without of luck, somehow it automaticly changed back to default (could be because i was trying to enter AVWizard).

then with the gt220 still in the system i tried to blacklist the onboard card, but wasn't shure wat to blacklist "ATI", "fglrx", "vesa" or something else; btw do u have to type with or without capital letter?;
still no luck.

yesterday i took out the gt220 and installed the 810 snaphot 23154;
and voila i got myself a working 810 core, no problem, with UI1;
so as MANDINGO suggested i put the gt220 back in but sadly that didn't work, i got the boot screen but the orbiter doesn't get displayed;
i get at tty1 the status updates: orbiter generation started etc....;
i can log in at tty1-tty4;
at ctrl+alt+7 i get a blank screen with cursor flashing;
at ctrl+alt+8 i get to see some data i think about the launch manager.

on the sunny side i got the new weborbiter 2.0 working and i am loving it, super work!
and i can log into the webadmin.

since i wanna connect through DVI,
it tried via the webadmin the following settings, without luck (i also get this resolution in the orbiter):
Connector = DVI
Audio Settings = S
Video Settings = 1280 1024/60
Architecture = i386
Extra Parameters = 0
TV Standard = 1280x1024
Release = 810
Video Card = Standard Video
Sound Card= Standard Sound Card
Hardware Acceleration = xv

but i noticed that the fields "IP" and "MAC" are empty, will this matter?
how to get "IP" and "MAC" of my core?

does anyone have any suggestions?

thanks alot,

thanks kyfalcon,

i have an onboard ati wich i need to get out of my way  ;)

1. Remove the add-on graphics card and boot into your ubuntu install as normal.

2. Open terminal and enter the following without quotes:

"sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist"

3. Add the following two entries without quotes to the end of the file:

"blacklist agpgart"
"blacklist intel_agp"

4. Shutdown the pc and reinstall the add-on graphics card.

5. Connect monitor to add-on card and boot pc.

i wanna use the dvi connector on the add-on card, i'm having a few questions:

wil i use the same commands?
what is blacklist?
do u first install linuxmce without the add-on card?
what exactly do these commands do?

thanks up front
