I don't have commit rights to SVN, and to be quite honest, I don't want commit rights. I'll plug away fixing stuff I'm capable of, usually SysAdmin type stuff 'cause that's what I do, do up patches and stuff them into Trac. Someone more knowledgable than I about LMCE internals can take 'em, leave 'em, tweak 'em, whatever. I'll just do what I can do, and let others do what they're good at.
Hope that clarifies things!
It does, thanks for the input and the info. I'm trying to learn at the same time so having some background sysadmin type detail posted helps me a lot.
which snap are you running that sorts out the "Preparing to LinuxMCE" "is connected to the internet" check/not checked?
I'm chewing up my ISP download 'cap' max but I want to keep testing.
None of these problems *appear* to be system problems with LMCE. I (and none of the devs) are experiencing issues like this. Ususally this is down to NIC problems or other network problems (cabling, switches)...If it is related to my hardware.... then it's a specific combination of 12.04 because I switch back to 10.04 (just boot a different HDD in the exact same equipment and it's hunky dory.
Once everything calmed down and I managed to get the GNU GRUB menu I selected Ubuntu with Linux.I can report I also got the GNU GRUB menu at one point. Also had the "is connected to internet" error but phenigma reports below this is a known issue.
If I had to guess I would say that it sounds like some serious networking problems during install prevented the system from configuring and installing properly. That is my reaction from all of your posts I have just read.I don't think that's a bad guess. I had some errors come up during the installation regarding networking but when all was done and dusted the network was up and things were working. I wasn't sure if the issues were real or what everyone experiences.
