Interesting... well... I tried to fix something that isn't broken then... it is probably just my vm receiving dhcp from outside that breaks mine. If you can spare the bandwidth and the time, a new snapshot should come out sometime today. If you wanted to test it that would be groovy...

I have also added a headless install option.
I never quit... I just ping out.

I copied the line "/etc/dhpc3/dhpc.conf ?" from your post. and after reading it now, i realized dhcp was spelled incorrectly.
Was it just a typo in your post or were you looking for dhpc.conf instead of dhcp.conf?

Will have a look tomorrow if I can download it.

No... other code is preventing fluffy from building properly and creating a new snap. When that is resolved, a new snap will arrive... I have no timeline.

Hi l3mce

How much work would it be to make this a bootable USB image?

Im sure most people are running systems with a USB port, which will allow us to install even quicker?

Try the usb-creator-gtk and let us know how good it works out.

I have used 8.10 for some time and decided to try 10.04. Clean installed from 201203211118 and built first MD. On creation of second MD at reboot PXE reported no offers. Dhcp had died. Reinstalled from same disk and dhcp did not work. Installed from 201203300106 . No dhcp. dhcp.conf is missing.

Thanks posde,
My new hardware should be arriving in the next week or two, then I will be able to do some tests on the new installer
and system :)

Cant wait, I'm really excited to do an upgrade, with the new system I also wanna start using the home automation

Did you open a trac ticket about this?

I have now. I thank all of you for your work on this project. I can offer little coding help as the last program I wrote was in FORTRAN and ran from punch cards on an IBM 1170. But I can try installing from snapshots from time to time. I have reverted to 8.10 for now. Thank you again for LMCE.

I am aware of the dhcp problem. It is a big one atm. I am working on figuring out what is breaking it.
Thank you for creating a ticket.
I never quit... I just ping out.

Going forward http://linuxmce.iptp.org/snapshots/LinuxMCE-1004-latest-snapshot-i386.iso will be what you want to grab at any given time.

I feel strongly that the current one will have very positive results should anyone wish to test.

Even though the latest is always the latest, try at least to note someplace what your version is. You can find out using dpkg -l pluto-dcerouter - the last 5 digits of the version number indicate the svn revision.
