Techstyle: I will download 10.04, burn it and install VIA DVD. I was wondering when installing and running LinuxMCE, does it run better with Intel or AMD processors? Or does it not make a difference? Also does this new release have more drivers and is there more templates for x10, to be more specific is my X10 CM19A supported?
posde: The sound card is on board, I will try and install 10.04 like Techstyle recommend. If I have a problem with the sound still, I will post more detailed information about the sound card. For now I will have it hooked up to standard desktop speakers. Later on, I will connect it to a 5.1 surround sound system.
I have to get this machine out and give this project another try. I hope this can finally become a successful project. I was reading the wiki before. But it's better to have help from people that are experienced with getting these systems running to their full potential.
Thanks for replying.
Its always a good idea to download a LiveCD of Ubuntu and boot from that. That way you can get a very good idea of how well your hardware will perform once LinuxMCE is installed.
All the best
