Installation problem - snapshot 1e June
« on: June 08, 2010, 12:19:55 pm »
Hi,

I'm trying to install lmce, without succes for a couple of times now. This is what happens,
the dvd is installed, then the lmce script is executed and then the system is rebooted.
Before the system shuts down following error is reported: Applcation Nepomuk Server crashed causing Signal 11.

-The system boots: I notice V4L2 modules failed to load.

In the house setup wizard: failed to get  ivtv videodrivers, failed to get mythtv plugin

                                     click "Start using the system", system answers: "the router is busy with the following task and cannot be reloaded right now: General Info Plug-in. See pending tasks: General Info Plugin Download Sofware on: 1"

I waited for an hour and choosed to click "Force Anyway"
while the  green progressbar  shows the startup of the lmce-devices.The Sarah-video frame is playing on top.
Then there is a black window with OK-button stating not all devices started correctly.
Ater this the wizard with Sarah appears again: I do it again confirming previous choises.

Then screens are generated, then again the green  progress-bar: it stops at Mythtv player

After short moment the lmce UI2 appaers.

I try to play a video: black screen without cursor or arrow.

I perform a reboot: black screen with message: "Installing Pluto-Mythtv-Plugin" and after this "Installing xmltv-util". I let it sit there for 30 minutes. Top shows in the meanwhile for Apt-Get 95-99% of cpu-usage.

rebooting takes me to the the "Installing Pluto-Mythtv-Plugin and xmltv utils' again.

This is a core with supported hardware. I never experienced with the early beta2 810 versions. As pvr I use one pvr250 and one pvr500.

Hopefully someone with more insight can hint me in the right direction.
thanks

Hi mathieu,

The fact that is says "Installing Pluto-Mythtv-Plugin and xmltv utils" suggests it is probably going to fix itself. You just need to give it a bit of time to do so. Provided you have a functioning Internet connection that is.

I have installed the same snapshot.  After a bit of time the packages installed correctly.

FYI there is a bug raised against this problem in trac. see this thread for more info:
http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=10227.0

Cheers,
WR.

Thanks wombiroller,

I let the core all afternoon but I guess the problem will not resolv itself.

In the initial installer log I notice it is trying to contact www.mythtv.org:80 resulting in error 404 not found.
But this is not the issue i believe.

Any ideas?

Hi,

My core is now working. The fix was adding the avanard repo.

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
 adding this line at the bottom:
deb http://www.avenard.org/files/ubuntu-repos/  intrepid  release
ctrl+O, ctrl+x

sudo apt-get update

Is this the right thing to do?

http://linuxmce.iptp.org/snapshots/

I know thats the snapshots, but downloading via torrent is more stable for me.
Hence the question, is the torrent download the latest snapshot?

The snapshots are not officially available via torrent.

It should, as we need to get the Microsoft TrueType fonts from the web. This might change in the future, but right now, I don't know of a successful install without internet connectivity.
