Hi

Ok I will download the file and test.

I am in the middle of trying to get an md to work at moment. It is just passed the avwizard and is regenerating orbiter at moment so dont really want to reboot my core at this precise second!!

I will post back soon as I can though.

Thanks for the help so far.

Regards

Murdock

Now that the core installer seems to be working for at least a few people, I'm going through the diskless creation script, tracking work on trac ticket:

Hi Murdock.

Well I downloaded the file and copied it over the original.

I uncommented out the line and rebooted and evrything was fine.

Would I need to invoke the avwizard to check everything is ok?

Regards

Hi Fibres, at this point all you should need to do is:
apt-get -qq update; apt-get -y upgrade

Running 1004 now using your installer. Ran into the same issue with MD creation as the others, and the fix discussed in the other thread worked fine. Orbiter Embedded Phone and External Media Identifier don't launch... I expected the former since I knew asterisk is still not working.

When my .m2ts and .mkv files refused to play, I soon realied that mplayer hadn't been automatically installed.

MD is freezing up when resuming from suspend (after I issue WOL)... I'll see if I can figure out what that's all about. 

Otherwise great stuff! Nothing major so far that I can see.

Even though not using your script, Ive found that External Media Identifier doesnt work because it is asking for libdvdread3 when 1004 using libdvdread4.

I installed libdvdread3 and now E.M.I is working.

Hi gents - this is correct, I have an updated id-my-disc package that posde is reviewing that will correct this.

The fix is simple and detailed in http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/ticket/1255 - essentially if you create a logical link to the updated library file, EMI will launch. Installing the old package works too.

The new installer scripts have now replaced the legacy install scripts. The wiki site has been updated:
http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Installing_1004


Please let me know if you have any issues.

I tried the new 1004 installer with...
  • Gigabyte GA-73PVM-S2
  • GeForce 7100 (onboard)
  • Realtek LAN (onboard)
  • Intel PRO network interface card

I had internet after Kubuntu installation, but LMCE installation broke it. I also cannot enter LMCE admin. Any ideas?
Otherwise the installation seemed to go smoothly - asterisk does not yet work as already noted. Can't really test the installation without the net. I also tried the 1004 installer on a Pentium 3 (1.4Ghz) system with no better luck.

Hi twodogs - thanks for testing. when you say you cannot enter lmce admin, are you talking about the web admin interface? Are you attempting to connect to it from the core via KDE desktop or are you attempting to reach it somewhere else on your network?

What i'm thinking the issue is, is that the network detection didn't properly detect the NIC that is connected tot he internet and assigned it as the internal nic.

Would you run ifconfig -a on your core and paste the output?

Also try to launch the web admin from the core itself by opening a firefox session and enter:
http://localhost

 :o
Yikes looks like /etc/network/interfaces is not being created.

But perhaps that was the old school way of setting up nic cards.

Should look something like below:

Code: [Select]
auto lo
        iface lo inet loopback
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp
auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static
        address 192.168.80.1
        netmask 255.255.255.0

But perhaps a newer version of Ubuntu may do something different.

Best of Luck,

Seth

Maybe a stupid question, but I have a core running 810. This is a second test box for 1004, also running as a core - could this be a problem?
