Installation does not work
« on: August 24, 2012, 10:10:49 am »
Hallo,

i've tried to install linux MCE 8.10. But it does not work. After choosing 'Linux MCE' my Monitor is switching to power save mode. This happens before choosing the hard drive on which mce should installed.

My Hardware: Biostar TH61 ITX; I5 3450; 2x Kingston 2GB DDR3 1333 MHz; Samsung F3 HD103SJ 1TB HardDrive; TBS 6981 DVB-S2 TV-Card

Installation of kubuntu-12.04-desktop-i386 works without problems.

is it possible to install the MCE packages to kubuntu 12.04?
Or got anybody an idea why the installation of MCE did not work?

thank you for help
Robert

I've done. Kubuntu installation works there. But AV Wizard does not start. There is an error message in text mode and only a hard reset is possible.

I need the output of lspci -nn | grep VGA

If you could give some sort of detail as to what the error was it might be helpful. It is undoubtedly due to some weirdo video chipset.
I never quit... I just ping out.

I see... it is an i5.

It is undoubtedly a sandy bridge.
You will have to do some work to make this work. Intel in general has been problematic for me lately, and that architecture is not well supported at all. It is not going to work on 810... 1004... maybe. You will need to get to a terminal on the install.

Code: [Select]
sudo -i
apt-add-repository ppa:kernel-ppa/ppa
apt-add-repository ppa:glasen/intel-driver
apt-add-repository ppa:f-hackenberger/x220-intel-mesa

apt-get update
apt-get install -y linux-image-generic-pae-lts-backport-natty
apt-get install -y mesa-common-dev xorg-xserver-intel-video mesa-common-dev libglu1-mesa libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri libgl1-mesa-dev
dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
apt-get -y install --reinstall xserver-xorg-core --force-yes
apt-get -yf install libva-driver-i965

The best way to stay supported, in the future, is to buy supported hardware.
