I was interested in getting linuxmce setup to try it out but I can't figure out some things about the releases.
I grabbed the torrent released DVD labeled 0810b2 which is Beta 2 i believe. It comes up to the kubuntu install screen and the last option is install LinuxMCE. I did that and it seems to prompt through all the normal kubuntu installation screens, after finishing it reboots and has me login to the account and then on the desktop has a link that says install LinuxMCE. When I do that it seems to go out on the internet and downloads all the required packages.
I thought the DVD was a single click install and is why the dvd is so large?
I also tried the latest LinuxMCE-8.10-23125-i386.iso but same thing.
I was able to get it installed with 0810b2 to try it out.
