I have just done the exact same thing, seems install went through perfectly, an initial wizard popped up, to configure sound/inputs/etc but i get get a blank screen...

If I reboot, it goes to reloading the screens, and then straight to the blank screen again, with a cursor...

I can get to the web admin interface, and go through the wizard, but nothing seems to help (when i change resolutions, etc, i can see them happening on the screen) but it wont do anything but load a black blank screen with the cursor...

Any help would be appreciated...

Hi,
I believe you will get UI1 working, it's probably issues with your graphics drivers and UI2.
Go to the admin page, select Media Directors, then choose UI1.

Out of curiosity, what graphics board do you have.

Yeah I read that in the forums somewhere, none of them work, UI2 doesn't work at all, UI1 i at least get a cursor, but doesn't move from there... any other ideas ?

What kind of installation have you made? Do you have a dedicated core? and on Ati ui1 will work and ui2 with alpha blended works ok on 6xxx series.

I have a radeon 9600SE, with latest ati drivers...
it is set to dedicated, so when it boots, it tries to load linux mce straight away... and ive tried UI1, UI2 with/without blending... just keep getting the same black screen with a cursor - i can only get a cursor in UI1

same thing here, it looks like the DCERouter is dying, check pluto.log and DCERouter.log in /var/log/pluto

It seems to be segfaulting on the file plugin, i will post a gdb trace when I get home tonight.

Here is a BT of the DCRouter crash.  This is on a fresh ubuntu system.  Hardware is standard.  I actually had this working last week but decided to reinstall after I started mucking around with pluto/linuxmce files and wanted a fresh system.  This would leave me to believe it may be related to something thats been updated in the ubuntu repos.
