DVD Installs are working -- Use either install method - Thanks.
« on: September 06, 2015, 02:08:31 am »
Hi all, the DVD snapshots are broken atm.  They install just fine but are missing some pkgs that are causing havoc communicating on the internal network side.  The network based installs are very robust and should result in a working hybrid.

Thanks for your patience while I work through these new installation upgrades.

DVD installs are functional again.  There are a few minor bugs that I'm squashing still but the discs are usable again.

Again the dvds all have minor errors atm, use net installs as directed in the wiki until a new snapshot comes out.  See the original post for the wiki link.

Hi,

Is the recommended install still net install? or has the dvd snapshots now been fixed?
And 1404 recommended?

Thanx
Karel

No new snapshots have been created.  They will return soon.  1204 is the recommended install, 1404 is available as well.

Next build went through. Brave men are needed for testing. Should arrive at http://linuxmce.iptp.org/snapshots/ shortly.

What state is the 14.04 64bit in? does it install and run? diskless MDs? The reason i ask is that i have bought a new server (HP Proliant Micro Gen8) with 16gb ram and it would be cool too give 64bit a try. 64bit system should be a great leap as probably all processors since 10 year are 64bit compatible :)

My opinion is that each of the DVDs are in the exact same state.  They install for me in virtualbox and have access to webadmin and play audio and video.  I have not tested diskless image creation or MDs, feel free to do so and let us know how it goes.  :)
