I always install hybrid, and disable the MD afterwards. That way, I do the 'Sarah Setup' on my core for the initial setup.

Hi coley,

I installed hybrid.

I use hybrid as a verification system when troubleshooting MD(s).

In the past this approach has been very helpful.

Snap! - LMCE-1204-20150427220730636.iso

Umm, did you install headless or hybrid?

Can you provide the snapshot ID?

There's a few "recent" out there.

I did 20150427220730636 and it was O.K. for rebuilding my "user" system.

Installation issues / recent 12.04 install

Hi All,
Are there any known issues with a 12.04 headless install?
I did an install with a fairly recent snapshot, install started ok and live cd booted.
Once I started the install the external network connection couldn't be found.
I was able to bring it up manually and the install continued but once finished I had to modify /etc/network/interfaces. Instead of auto I had to use allow-hotplug for eth0 and eth1 interfaces otherwise my network cards remained off. On power on the cards are active - link and activity leds blinking, then once lmce started to boot both went dark.
There seemed to be a rogue entry in the file, I spotted a similar one from a recent post from @brononius here its commented out.
udev rules for eth0 and eth1 were pointing to the correct cards.

Then once both interfaces are up I have no routing between them :(
Core can see external and internal, internal devices cannot see beyond core.
Anything else I can check for errors?

We are looking for Dianemo X86 or LinuxMCE users who are willing to test Dianemo-Rpi on the LAN side of their existing Core's. If you already have a license to both Dianemo X86 & Dianemo-Rpi2 and would be willing to test the two systems alongside each other then get in contact. Similarly if you have a Dianemo X86 license or LinuxMCE Core and would like a Dianemo-Rpi2 license to participate in this configuration test then get in contact too.

Contact us at with 'Dianemo/LinuxMCE + Dianemo-Rpi2 LAN Test' in the subject line. If you need a Dianemo-Rpi license then please provide your Paypal details in the body of the email too.

Thank you for that information Andrew, and for ignoring the entire post, including the questions within it.  I am happy to start a new topic if that is what you would prefer in order to respond to my inquiries.


To be perfectly frank Jason I have far better things to do with my time than respond to you.

Yes I am a shareholder in CHT Ltd and I have been for the last 11 years. I also have my own consulting business too. CHT Ltd was the first Pluto Inc licensee, and as far as I know, currently is the only one still trading. Our Pluto license applies to Dianemo X86 only. We fully comply with our Pluto license and always have. Any code that we develop ourselves, that is not derived from or an enhancement of PPL code, we have every right to distribute anyway we please. Dianemo-Rpi is a separate product and is not based on PPL code.

If we make any changes to PPL code then we have always made those changes available to LinuxMCE.

Hi there,

Firstly let me just reiterate; This thread is about Dianemo X86 and our update to Ubuntu 14.04LTS. This update, as is true for all previous updates, is completely FREE to anyone who has EVER purchased a Dianemo license. No exceptions or caveat’s - anyone with a license can get it.

Here is another quick update for everyone following this thread. As you probably know last week we asked if there were any volunteers who would like to test upgrading their current Dianemo installation to Ubuntu 14.04LTS.

A number of you stepped up to the plate and said yes - a very big thank you to anyone who did!

So where are we? Well the testing we are doing is all around the update process itself mostly, ironing out the wrinkles in the installer is where most of the remaining effort is needed. We have fully upgraded systems with all areas of the system working under 14.04LTS, but importantly these were at least in part, manually updated and 'tweaked' by hand to make them work. We're close, but as usual the last '10%' takes a disproportionate amount of the total effort.

As of right now this what we're working on;

- Diskless Create TBZ; This is needed for MD's. Due to some changes in bash this code is currently broken (we may have fixed this...test running currently)
- Zoneminder; The server part is working but the installer currently does not automatically install ZM. We don't have the Athena changes ready yet to access ZM cameras from the Orbiter. Adding cameras in Dianemo Web Admin is not integrated (but you can add them in ZM directly of course) and Camera events are not working inside Dianemo yet.
- Asterisk & FreePBX; Asterisk is working and gets installed but we need a new FreePBX deb and that is not ready yet.
- MythTV Backend; Working but needs some manual changes to Mythweb.conf

- As far as I know everything else is working - but there may still be obscure parts of the system that throw up some issues in the coming weeks. Below is a sample of SOME of the working components (picked pretty much at random);
- Networking, Firewall
- Remote Assistance
- Virtualised Audio & LMS
- MythTV Backend
- Athena UI
- Asterisk
- UPnP Video
- Kmotion
- iTunes Integration
- Insteon Support
- Zwave
- Lutron
- Device Templates
- Scenarios - auto & user generated
- Timed events

For the reckless and intrepid few...
As of today if you upgrade your Dianemo installation to Ubuntu 14.04LTS by using 'do-release-upgrade' and then run the Dianemo installer (**note I said Dianemo Installer**) your installation will get upgraded to Dianemo 1404. However currently you will hit all of the above issues and we simply cannot support you through the manual fixes needed. So please understand that you are on your own if you do this - unless you have volunteered and we have accepted your offer (this is important because we can only support a few volunteers simultaneously, so we need you to wait until we give you the go ahead please).

As soon as we have the wrinkles worked out I will let everyone know here - Thank you for your patience!

Hello to all,

My two cents on Netflix!.  I Installed Google Chrome and I was able to get Netflix running Perfectly.  I Started a Post not long ago sharing how to do it. Just a few tricks on video acceleration for chrome and nvidia and running as root.
I was able to run it without any issues on a Zotac Zbox I use as MD.

The only thing I don't know how to do is to make LMCE start Chrome instead of Firefox.
