LinuxMCE snapshots
« on: July 23, 2010, 11:26:49 am »
hey guys I am trying to find out if the snapshots at http://linuxmce.iptp.org/snapshots/ are a complete DVD install or what exactly they are.
I installed the version I downloaded from linuxtracker.org but I don't think what's there is the latest. I haven't updated it for quite some time and now I am having issues with the apt-get and apt-upgrade. I was wanting to get werb orbiter 2.0 working and and after trying the fixes I saw on the forums I still can't apt-update so I decided to do a full install with whatever is the latest build. Would I be able to do that with the snapshot?

Thanks

In short, yes, it's just a normal DVD installation (so follow the instructions for a DVD installation in the wiki).

I installed the latest snapshot (23165 at the time) and I have had nothing but a pleasant experience with it. I did change the etc/apt/preferences file as per posde's post (http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=10309.0) before I double clicked the LinuxMCE icon on the desktop, not sure whether this was necessary or not.

Let's put it this way - I didn't have any problems with mythTV installing, or getting the cards to work, so I have to assume that it was indeed necessary.
