How?
« on: March 01, 2011, 06:53:45 pm »
I have been looking for an all in one home automation and media server solution for a while so when I found LMCE I was amazed that it had everything I wanted. I hope to one day help the community develope it further. The only problem is I don't know my way around Linux so I need some help with the initial install.

1. I download and burn this LinuxMCE-8.10-23759-i386.iso 26-Feb-2011 00:13  3.3G 
2. Next Installed it and now I have the desktop. Can someone please explain how to do the next part.

"Internet Installation
Install Kubuntu Intrepid desktop and update it. (download Kubuntu 8.10 desktop release from http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/releases/kubuntu/8.10/kubuntu-8.10-desktop-i386.iso) Currently, only the 32bit version of LinuxMCE is available. Only download the i386 version of 8.10 Kubuntu, even if your system can support 64bit versions. Note: If Kubuntu asks whether you would like to install/activate 'Restricted Drivers' for your video card, ignore it and continue to step 2.
Edit your /etc/apt/sources.list file to contain only (from post http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=10917.15 ):
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ intrepid  main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ intrepid  main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ intrepid-updates  main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ intrepid-updates  main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://deb.linuxmce.org/ubuntu/ intrepid  beta2
deb http://debian.slimdevices.com/ stable  main
deb http://packages.medibuntu.org/ intrepid  free non-free
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ intrepid-security  main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ intrepid-security  main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ intrepid  main universe multiverse
deb http://deb.linuxmce.org/ubuntu/ replacements_debian  main
deb http://deb.linuxmce.org/ubuntu/ 20dev_ubuntu  main

3. What is the command for this "Run aptitude update and aptitude dist-upgrade to get the latest Kubuntu updates. "

4.What directory is the new installer directory? Grab the latest installer script from here, unpack them and change into the freshly created new-installer directory.

5.How do I do this "Run the following scripts (as root, in order): pre-install-from-repo.sh, mce-install.sh, post-install.sh."

 




Thank you for your help.

I think you still need to check that your sources.list is correct before running the code stated in the DVD section, namely:

Code: [Select]
sudo su - #This might ask for the password you specified earlier during the install of kubuntu.
apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

To do this open a terminal window and type
Code: [Select]
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
(nano is a text editor and I find is quite easy to use as a linux noob but you can use others)

if it isn't then edit it.  I usually just follow the guide here: http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=10901.0

then continue on with the rest of the instructions

Good Luck and be patient!!

There should be no need to edit the sources.list file. Granted, you will get a 404s on quite a few entries, but that will not hinder the installation, apart from adding a few seconds to the whole ordeal.

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Snapshot_overview

These two latest snapshots are confirmed working.
I do not alter sources.list, also the snapshot in the opening post, I cannot find at all.

I just downloaded LinuxMCE-8.10-23796-i386.iso 05-Mar-2011 00:14 3.5G | PASS 05-03-2011 I burnt it on a slower setting.

and installed it. After the first reboot it says " GRUB loading, Please wait."
ERROR 22.

This is the second time I have got this message I have downloaded this snapshot twice now on 2 different machines and burnt it using 2 different programs now andd I keep getting the same error.

Bad karma :(

"GRUB loading Please wait" indicates a broken download or broken burn process.

I think you are right it must be bad karma I set this up on a machine about 3 years ago and it downloaded and installed without a hitch perfectly. Now I can't get it to work to save my life.

E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.                                                                       
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.

Yes I am using it right now. Is this when I have to follow the Internet download instructions?

Hi,

Using old-releases is necessary.  us.archives won't cut it.

Try a snapshot and then edit /etc/apt/sources.list as per...

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Installing_0810

then update/dist-upgrade

Cheers

I think we need to get our stories straight.

I re-installed yesterday and without updating the sources.list (as directed by Posde) and got a similar set of errors but the install seems to be OK, everything is working but everytime I do an update I get similar error to SomeITGuy.

Now we have come full circle to the OP. How do you edit that file and how much of the sources.list do you remove or replace. It will only allow the root to edit it how do you change that?  The instructions at this point are missing details for those of us who are well versed in linux.
