hey ....

my android emulator is up and running with a good performance. :-)
i seems like i did NOT download the macOS version of the Emulator!


i've installed Ministro II and QOrbiter app (from here: ).

on the first run of qorbiter it asks for additional libs to be installed, so i installed the additional libs.
After installing the additional qorbiter goes black and thats it.

I tried with Android 2.3.3, 3.0.1, 4.0.1 .

Any information to get around this issue or debug it is greatly appreciated!

Hey ...
first of all thx, for offering advanced information :-)

Currently i have only a iPad and a iPhone 3GS to test. :-(

So my plan was to use any emulator to get QOrbiter working. But the adnroid emu does a bad job on OS X.
It slows down the whole mac to an almost unusable speed, i don't want to talk about the speed of the android emu. I can slide to unlock but thats it.

If you know how to run an android emu on Mac OS please let me know !

<possy> whoever has a problem with mythtv, please downgrade pluto-dcecommon using the following commands:
<possy> wget
<possy> sudo dpkg -i pluto-dcecommon_2.
<possy> reboot, and report back

worked for me!

The Problem was caused by the auto-installed Gamepad.

Solution for 1004:
1. Delete all Gamepad Devices from your device tree
2. Edit /usr/pluto/bin/ and add  a "exit 0" (insert it before "done")
Code: [Select]
sleep 5

exit 0


3. reboot

Thanks to tschak for the solution/wokraround

Hey Andrew,

sounds intresting.
But i want to focus on running the UI1.
I've already installed kubuntu 10.10. Looks very promising to me.
Desktop effects run smoothly.

How do i install LinuxMCE on top of Kubuntu 10.10 without crashing the whole installation ?
I've tried it several times and i always ended up with a completely broken OS

Thank you

Hi all,
i have succefully installed LinuxMCE on my MacMini 1.66 Ghz / Intel Core Duo !
I will write a small howto, and post it here probably this weekend. ;-)

Everything seems to work fine. Except the Intel 945GM still have performance issues...
The fading of the background-images from flickr is not as smooth as i expected.

Anyway, LinuxMCE looks great.


it's good to hear that my knowledge is responsible for not getting linuxMCE to work on my MacMini :-)
I think the main problem is to install the correct Intel GMA950 Driver with direct rendering.

So at first i'll try to install the driver with direct rendering.

I hope this will fix the Problem.

Any help would be appreciated.

first of all, i'm a LinuxMCE beginner. please, do not blame me if i ask stupid questions. ;-)

i want to install LinuxMCE on a MacMini.
LinuxMCE would be my preferred solution for a Media Center.
I already managed to run the lightweight interface.
But i want to run the UI1 whithout alpha blending. I tried to install several times before, but it looks like the Intel GMA950 has not enough power to run UI1, is this true?

Do you guys think it's possible?
Or any reasons y not?

Thanx in advance...
