Tonight is my first foray into the wonderful world of linuxMCE. I will be patient... please be patient with me.
Trying to install 8.10 from DVD.
I select "LinuxMCE Install" and run that, clicking all the boxes. The only glitch is a minor issue when install is complete and wants to reboot it asks to eject DVD, close tray and press enter. I do all that but enter (and any other key) has no effect... message just stays on the screen. Eventually I have to power down manually. I presume this isn't serious. Kubuntu comes up on startup no problem (it seems, I'm new to Ubuntu... been a Fedora man in the past).
OK, now I'm logged into Kubuntu and the install instructions say to run
"apt-get update" and then "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" before running the MCE installer icon.
My question is - must I have an internet connection up and running before doing this? Because it isn't
and I'm not sure why but I guess if that's required, I'd better sort that out first.
Thanks in advance
