Installation Beta 10.04 (Oct 22)
« on: October 22, 2012, 01:32:58 pm »
Hello LinuxMCE community ,

To test this LinuxMCE application , I have just installed successfully the DVD "10.4 Beta.1" with Core+MD components
Now I have to see about my  Wi-Fi interface problem but I am stuck with "sudo iwconfig" command where the password provided is refused .

I have provided the password setup during the installation procedure ( user account )

Any advice ?

MODIFY : Password issue closed after re-install and setup correctly the password but the installation issue is still present .

What are you trying to do with the wifi connection? It can take internet... but... it isn't going to run an MD.

Your user account password is your user account password. If you are typing sudo ANYTHING (sudo echo "echo") and it is refusing it, you are typing it wrong, your caps lock is on, or it was on when you installed. That isn't something we affect at all.

Probably more importantly, unless you had 2 findable nics installed during install... you have a single nic configuration, and trying to use one as wifi (again, fine if you are just getting internet) isn't going to happen. You will need to reinstall. Check your /etc/network/interfaces file to see if it has an eth0 and eth1 or if it is eth0 and eth0:1

While in the installer (when it shows you the reboot now button) you are going to need to work out your whole wifi situation. ctrl alt f2, type sudo -i, and set everything up by whatever you are following. I have a thread on here about how to do it. Once you get it working correctly... copy the files you have created to the appropriate directories under /target/       making sure what needs to be executable is, and that it is set to load up at boot, so that the first boot script can ascribe the wlan to be the external interface, and download the needed bits.

OR, conversely you can take internet in on the rj45, and then once it is setup and you can get into web admin, go to networking and select the swap nics option and update/save... after setting up your nic to work correctly.

In any case, none of this is an expectation for a server/router and is unsupported... but I am happy to try and help where I can.

Also... if you ARE going to reinstall... use the latest snapshot.

Thanks l3mce for your reply.

The setup I choosed was to load the Hybrid one ( Core+MD) but to make it more simple I will make a new fresh install with RJ45 connection to the ADSL box and with the Core component only ( No MD as I am more focusing on Home automation and videosurveillance).

I will update then this subject .

Core only installs are very beta.

If you plan on using myth, for instance, you will need to setup a hybrid in order to configure the master backend, then you can convert it to headless after the fact. I am not done with the headless install option yet, and neither of those options will effect your issues.

I have installed the latest snapshot 10.04 available dated 22/10  , Revision 26592

- The Kubuntu install ran fine  on Hybrid PC configuration ( Core+MD)
- Then the System rebooted as per procedure
- The AV Wizard was not yet started ( I assumed )  but the  full screen was  blinking right after ...  white , red , blue , green red and so and so .

The septup of the 3 wizards was fine with the Beta.1  DVD


MODIFY : I made a new fresh install  and before to get the blinking full screen  as described before ,  there was a printout on the screen during the reboot sequence saying that XORG was missing (/etc/xorg/conf ) and that next screen will be AVWizard
Unfortunately , the terminal is not accessible to get the log

Either the install is not assigning networking correctly, and it is trying to load up on the nouveau driver and puking, or well... the only change I made at that part, is to the nvidia installer, if the driver install was interrupted it tries to correct itself...

That should take a while to do if dpkg was broken... but it feels like wishful thinking. When it sees that xorg.conf is missing, it runs through its detection/install scheme, that message is normal. On first boot, it has to download and install your drivers etc... if something goes horribly wrong during that process, it tries to recover 3 times. It is not fully tested, but should only creep up when it detects an install error...

If you could please load the installer, switch to console (ctrl alt f2) and give me the output of lspci -nn | grep VGA
then assuming your install is on sda1:
sudo -s
wget http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/export/26599/branches/LinuxMCE-1004/src/BootScripts/nvidia-install.sh
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
cp nvidia-install.sh /mnt/usr/pluto/bin
chmod +x /mnt/usr/pluto/bin/nvidia-install.sh
umount -lf /dev/sda1


and reboot. You really need to try to ssh in. You can do this with any live boot disk.

Hit me up in IRC again, I was rewriting all this stuff as usual.

Argh ...  I need to re-install as the azerty keybord is not set up correctly (no - , !! ) so i could only run lspci command without parameters :
The output fot the Nvidia driver is : VGA compatible driver : nVidia Corporation G96 GeForce GT 130M rev a1

I will try to re-install asap to fix this keyboard issue

MODIFY #1 : The proper keyboard version has been installed OK

The output of lspci -nn | grep VGA is : 01:00.0 VGA compatible controler [0300] : NVIDIA Corporation G96 [Geforce GT 130M] [10de:0652] ( rev a1 )
The networking is OK as the wget command succeeded

MODIFY #2 : Next is to perform the remaining requested actions

- Sudo commands performed = OK ( wget , cp , mount , chmod , umount )
- Boot by hard reset = OK
- Init sequence stopped  after starting Asterix = NOK
