I had to do a full reinstall after a failed motherboard. It had been running relatively stably until recently. In any event, I installed this on a AMD 990FX MB with a 6 core Phenom II, 4 GB ram and an old Nvidia 8400 GS. I also have 4 1TB hard drives in a RAID 5 array mounted on home, and a 500GB disk for the OS. I installed 08.10 using the DVD (version 23858). I upgraded the r8169 ethernet driver to the r8168 using thishttp://wiki.hetzner.de/index.php/Installation_of_r8168_network_driver
. Make sure you do the
update-initramfs -v -u -k `uname -r`
at the end or it won't stick. Also, took a while to get the iptables, dansguardian, squid, firewall working correctly. I had to make sure that the ip_forwarding was on before it all worked http://www.ducea.com/2006/08/01/how-to-enable-ip-forwarding-in-linux/
. I finally have the interwebs working (to much happiness from the family;) however, I still have a couple of issues.
1. Cannot add diskless mds. There is no /usr/pluto/diskless directory. I tried invoking Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh however it puked on dependency issues with Mythtv. I am using a separate mythtv installation so I just commented out lines 188-194. It finishes running but there still is no /usr/pluto/diskless directory structure. If I start a diskless md, it looks like it starts finding the vmlinuz, etc. then pukes, saying it cannot connect.
2. When I boot, I cannot get the windows manager to start. It crashes back to the tty. I tried starting the AVWizard but it also crashes. I tried using the 1-5 keys with no results. I have been able to get the Orbiter (Core/Hybrid) running by running /usr/pluto/bin/Startup_Core-Hybrid.sh. however it opens as 640x480. I tried the nvidia-settings program but it does not allow me to change the resolution. The /etc/X11/xorg.conf has device as "nvidia" and one modeline for 640x480.
Any ideas on how to fix these two issues?
Thanks for any and all help in advance.
