After looking at it a bit more, I'll ask a friend of mine, who wants to dip his toe into LinuxMCE to do the following for his i386 install:
Code: [Select]
add-apt-repository http://deb.linuxmce.org/ubuntu/
apt-get -q update
DEBIAN_FRONTEND="noninteractive" apt-get -y -q --allow-unauthenticated install lmce-hybrid | tee $(basename $0 | cut -d'.' -f1).log

basically was the netinstall does, with the exception of working for Ubuntu only.

Is it safe to say, that apt-get install lmce-core after adding the repo to an ubuntu system, should install a core-only system?

It is a selection on DVD install, but I'm not sure it's working,I think it still runs X.  But it is there as an option.

Phenigma,

yes, single nic might already be an option. It is a long time I looked at it.

Headless is possible, but atm we still need one for initial setup. polly's work on a web based setup wizard somehow didn't really finish. And the main thing is, that headless is currently something that is not a thing you select, especially during setup. You can easily do it by altering autostartmedia to 0 but for the initial setup it is not, iirc.

Installation issues / Re: PnP Install Broken for Phoenix USB Solo Mic
« Last post by phenigma on March 16, 2017, 02:56:28 pm »
If the device was responding as 'AK4571' then the below script should be working.  Please post the output of 'aplay -l' and 'aplay -L'.  Shouldn't be any need to wait for a dev to test here.

No luck. The modified script is below. I modified it on the diskless workstation and then tried reloading, rebooting and re-inserting the microphone in the USB port.

If there are problems with the xenial lts stack then it can be set back to wily (or other pre-4.0 kernel) until aftpd can be replaced/upgraded.

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.
