recent 12.04 install
« on: May 12, 2015, 07:40:48 pm »
Hi All,
Are there any known issues with a 12.04 headless install?
I did an install with a fairly recent snapshot, install started ok and live cd booted.
Once I started the install the external network connection couldn't be found.
I was able to bring it up manually and the install continued but once finished I had to modify /etc/network/interfaces. Instead of auto I had to use allow-hotplug for eth0 and eth1 interfaces otherwise my network cards remained off. On power on the cards are active - link and activity leds blinking, then once lmce started to boot both went dark.
There seemed to be a rogue entry in the file, I spotted a similar one from a recent post from @brononius here http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=14051.msg101535#msg101535 its commented out.
udev rules for eth0 and eth1 were pointing to the correct cards.

Then once both interfaces are up I have no routing between them :(
Core can see external and internal, internal devices cannot see beyond core.
Anything else I can check for errors?

Thanks,
-Coley.

Hi,

Can you provide the snapshot ID?

There's a few "recent" out there.

I did 20150427220730636 and it was O.K. for rebuilding my "user" system.

Thanks.

Snap! - LMCE-1204-20150427220730636.iso

Umm, did you install headless or hybrid?

thanks

Hi coley,

I installed hybrid.

I use hybrid as a verification system when troubleshooting MD(s).

In the past this approach has been very helpful.

Cheers.

I always install hybrid, and disable the MD afterwards. That way, I do the 'Sarah Setup' on my core for the initial setup.

I normally install hybrid too, but Sarah normally grabs the first sound card in my core and as a result talks in a different room :)
As plan B I can re-install hybrid - but before I do that, any other files I should check for routing issues?

thanks,
-Coley.

Hi coley,

I've had issues where on 12.04 and 14.04 installs I would have to swap ethernet cables to get networking up.

Othertimes, I would do an install with no network, then reboot.

Sometimes this would give me one ethernet connection and then i would have to swap and reboot to get two ethernet connections.

Hope that works for you.

Cheers.

Sarah will use whatever audio card you configure for the core in avwizard.
