let's put together a pool to get Murdock an intel media director.

I have an intel media director for testing I can hook up to my test core.

FYI - Here's the code I was looking at adding: http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/ticket/1313#comment:4

The logic is sound though I don't have any way of testing due to the lack of hardware.

FYI - code has been committed to determine ATI vs Intel vs nVidia and install the necessary driver automatically and alert the end user it will take a few minutes to complete so they aren't wondering what is going on.

I have noticed over the last year or so that the fglrx driver continually adds and drops support for various chipsets. My idea to overcome this issue of ever changing support, rather than dealing with it the way we do nVidia, is to add a function to AVWizard_Run.sh which, prior to throwing the fail to setup x whiptail, again checks for ATI in lspci, and swaps the fglrx entry with radeon in xorg.conf.pluto.avwizard, and cycles the test again. I did this before when testing all of the ATI crap I have, and it worked well. One of the two fires everything I could get my hands on, but of course fglrx is preferred.

I also have some half written code somewhere which attempts to unlock VAAPI accelleration for 1004+. I will dig that up and start a ticket.
I never quit... I just ping out.

This is definitely do-able, the only issue I have is I can't test it. If you're willing to help  either code or at least test out the logic i'm all about it.

No problem. I already wrote it once... lost it in an image restore.

This is also one bongowongo can test, he has a crapload of worthless ATI cards. What would be convenient is for him to first find cards that don't load with the current newly applied logic for fglrx, and then just drop in the new avwizard to confirm it works. Should have tonight... tomorrow latest.

Tried installing 1004 on my old firewall box. Prior to downloading/installing mce-install.sh, kubuntu was working fine (both nics, X, etc).  After installing, X is broken due to fglrx not supporting the ancient onboard ATI graphics adapter. Manually switching back to the "mach64" driver and re-writing the xorg.conf file is the current fix.

it looks like mach64 may be the correct driver for the X (http://www.imminentweb.com/technologies/x-server-ati-rage-xl). What does is the result of this command?

Code: [Select]
lspci -nn | grep -i vga

Did a fresh install of 1004, and can't get into webadmin. I tried to access from the orbiter screen and also from KDE desktop. I tried localhost and 192.168.80.1. Anyone have any tips on what to try next?

Picture shows what happens when I select Computing->Webadmin. I looked at network settings and it appears to be unable to use DHCP. In the bottom picture I have just hit "Use DHCP" and it returns a "no". I wanted to see if Asterisk and telecom were working yet, but I can't even get to the configuration screen!

have a look at your /etc/networks/interfaces
I had the same issue 2 days before because one NIC had two entrys and one of them had no data filled in.
I just commented out the empty one and everything worked fine then...

maybe that helps

edit: I believe activated ipv6 for internal network was my problem...

Did a reinstall after reconfiguring  my network setup (easier to do that than to fix some of the things I broke while playing around).

I have Intel series graphic chipsets and lmce 10.04 was detecting it just fine (Kubuntu had no problems). On reinstall, the system fails to go to the X server, saying something about the avwizard. I am able to log into my user account and do a startx, getting to Kubuntu,... but booting to lmce, the setup wizard fails to start the xserver...

Was there some sort of regression introduced to the initial setup scripts??? More importantly, how do I fix it???
