I have been very interested in home automation with Zwave and recently i saw the possibility to use LinuxMCE as a software tool for that. I would like to install just the home automation portion on a low power consumption server (like the Intel MD525MW).
I have downloaded the LinuxMCE 810 ISO and installation of Unbuntu went well. I had some issues with the realtek NIC, but this i have been able to fix.
However, the MCE installation did not work out well. The AVwizard did start, but after choosing the basic options, my ubuntu is completley reconfigured. i do not see the MCE starting and also my network manager disappeared. so no internet anymore.
I am new to the Unix world, but i assume the problem might be with the fact that Linuxmce is requirng a NVIDIA card ?
is it possible to install just the home automation portion of LinuxMCE for Zwave ?
Or has anyone succeede to make linuxMCE 810 work on a low power motherboard without Nvidia ?
