We have two methods of setup currently. 

I believe what you are looking to achieve is already accomplished with a single nic setup.  iirc, when a single nic is detected DHCP is not started and only the ext if is configured (and a dummy int if).  Firewall can be disabled (if desired) and the setup you are suggesting is achieved.

2 nic setup enables DHCP and configures both the internal and external interface, firewall can be disabled if desired.

The setup you seem to want to achieve appears to be met with a single nic setup.  As a minimum one nic must be configured.

I agree that for some other power users (which exotic nic setups or more nics) that an option for manual setup would be beneficial.

Now you mention an XServer and I'm not sure where you're going with that.  Headless systems are already possible.

A DHCP server needs to be running. Does it need to run on the DCERouter? Only if you want auto-detection for network devices to work. Granted, most want that eventually, but for people who want to just dip their toes into LinuxMCE I think a pure DCERouter running on a regular Linux machine can already do a lot of things.

If no DHCP server is running on DCERouter, the entries that *a* dhcpd.conf entry for a specific device would need, could be presented to the user, or written into a seperate dhcpd.conf file. Right now, we already create a dhcpd.conf file which contains an import statement at the end, for site specifics that a user might want. We could, extend this, and create importable dhcpd.conf files for each device that we create, and link to those files instead of writing all the data into dhcpd.conf. This small importable dhcpd conf file could than be used by the user on a different dhcpd server easily.

Again, my view on this is, that a lot of things work without overtaking the network part or even the XServer.

Just throwing ideas into the wild here. Feedback VERY much appreciated.

Dhcp, ext if, int if.  Are required to be setup.

We are trying as hard as we can to keep LMCE going, there are only a few of us who can work on it in our free time. If you know other interested hackers programmers (changed by posde), it sure would help. :)

Installation issues / Re: Video Card Recommendations?
« Last post by S4Howie on March 13, 2017, 09:48:16 pm »
I just want to say i have never had problems with any nvidia card install at either core ore client setup. I used old ones like 7300 and 7600GT. I use a GT210 atm in 1 MD which installed without any problems at first setup,screen was a PhillipsTV 1080i,in Audio/Video Wizard i set HDMI/1920x1080/60Hz in Audio Section choose HDMI too,there will be no sound then but its ok,later there is no isuess with sound, just mythtv needs some audio setting adjustments.

Another MD i have has Intel Graphic Chipset on board,setup was also no problem. Boot up for the first time into A/V Wizard,choose the wanted resolution,and everythings fine. Its running UI2 in 1080i aswell.

On my Core/Hybrid i have a intel Server Mainboard with a Matrox Graphic Chipset,even this showd me a picture from the very first install. Its just UI1 but it runs,resolution is 800x600 cause i dont really use it as an MD.

So i can advice everybody with a generic pc setup as md choose a nvidia 7600GT and newer over any other card if you want it working without issues. Or choose a mainboard with Intel Graphics onboard if you want a budget UI2 out of the box.

posde that worked!!
Since i had deleted the MD i need to do following:

Step1: Setup new md,reload the core,let the md boot and update and reboot till its stuck in tftp boot then power off
Step2: re-link the older (3.x) init.rd and vmlinuz files and reboot
Step3: MD comes up again but shows no picture
Step4: apt-get install --reinstall linux-image-3.16.0-77-generic over core console and reboot
Step5: having a lot of joy seeing the MD boot again over pxe(but no picture no xserver)
Step6: since i have a nvidia card installing the latest nvdia package and driver reboot several times
Step7: drink a beer and enjoy your reborn MD with showing picture again

Thank you once again posde,i would be lost without you guys.
awesome work and support,keep LinuxMCE alive pls

phenigma,

what part of the network setup is still needed?

I like the idea.  But it doesn't really deal with your reason, that's simply a firewall thing,lmce network setup is still necessary for those users.  Power users that have weird networking requirements would definitely benefit from such an option.  So... What is the reason?

Developers / New pluto.conf option - IgnoreNetworking
« Last post by posde on March 11, 2017, 06:40:39 pm »
Morning,

I propose a new entry for pluto.conf, namely IgnoreNetworking - whenever IgnoreNetworking is set to 1, all network setup scripts will exit without changing anything. For people who just want LinuxMCE to be part of there existing network, who can live without auto-setup for networking devices etc, this might be a good step.

Thoughts?
