Installation issues / Re: update problems/mistakes made(solved)

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

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?

Maybe running
Code: [Select]
apt-get install --reinstall linux-image-3.16.0-77-generic
on your MD will fix the issue for you.

I just re-linked the older (3.x) init.rd and vmlinuz files and rebooted. And take care not to apt-get autoremove them ;)
