hey ...

i wrote a little script which aims to make the upgrade process a bit smother.
it changes a few lines in the config of mysql and upnp. It prepares sources.list for precise.
before changeing the file will be backed up in *.1004.

download it from here:

i need people to test it.
Its experimental! So if anything goes wrong while using this script let me know.

Hey ...

i upgraded my LMCE 810 to LMCE 1204 and from the current point of view it was a success story for me as a semi skilled programmer.

With the help of Google i was able to fix all the install issues i had.

Here is what i roughly did:

For now i couldn't find any big issue ... i'm not using any special equipment, currently its more a HTPC than a home automation system.

Parts of the System i tested till now:
  • VDR works
  • both network cards work
  • NVIDIA graphics works
  • AvWizard detected audio correctly and played sounds nicely

i expected the upgrade driving me nuts, but it was quite easy ... :-)

thoughts and questions are welcome :-)

I asked the rEFIt-guys to add PXE boot option to rEFIt, which enables every USB-stick with rEFIt installed on to boot from lan.

lets see what happens ....


Users / MAC: Boot an Install from DVD
« on: December 12, 2012, 01:53:56 pm »

i have my own MacMini 2010 and access to different Macs.
I cant boot into Live from DVD anymore.
DVD is detected and boots up but is stuck while loading "radvd" ....

No idea whats going on.

But if you have a Mac it would be great to hear your experience using the DVD.

### EDIT: SORRY TO EARLY ... as usual, after connecting several times it stopped working again ....


here is my config:

pw44, "dead peer connection" was the key!!! thx a lot....
you should click on the "update" button in network settings, i guess  to update the network config. Make also sure you updated linuxMCE to the most recent version coz' sambuca added a few changes regarding config using lmce-admin done by robwoodward75.

hope this helps!

pw44, vpn on my core is working as long as the dynamic ip gets updated.... :-/

it still needs some testing, i had some trouble connecting a second time ...
i got disconnected....

i'll do some more tests. For me its working, but its not reliable....
I will do further tests! ... This may take its time.

just a hint!
i'm not sure if its really true, but i read that ipsec needs ICMP requests.
ICMP requests must be enabled. Afaik you can ping local but not the external.

Hope this helps....

Thanks for sharing.

Do the images I produce have to be in PSD format? And I assume you need transparent background?

PSD is fine.
Yep, i need a transparent background.

Would be great to stay with the "steam punk style" ... but i guess this is even more time-consuming.
here are all my files i used:

and sorry, still need to list the required images :-/

Hey ...

I'm sorry to say I left LinuxMCE a few months back for 1 reason, LiveTV support is just horrendous. I need something that works when it comes to LiveTV and it isn't LinuxMCE. If the wife isn't happy, then I am not allowed to play with my toys.

i agree .....
I can provide a detailed report about MythTV on LMCE, if anyone nows how to implement or just make it work rock solid i'm glad to help.

As mentioned in a ealier post: I want MythTV to work rock solid! For me the most annoying thing. Radomly throwing errors like "irrecoverable recorder error", "Frame buffering something failed" or quit unexpected while switch between channels.

imho, i think LMCE Media stuff should work ootb. I dont talk about configuration, thats another story ;-)
