LMCE-1204-20150909140531356 snapshot notes

Hi,

I tried this snap x3 installs to figure out what was going on - (O.K. so I'm a little slow).

I was attempting to do a Core/Hybrid install.

On the first install I got audio/video setup but I never received Sarah.

What I noticed on the second install was that the system was doing a lmce-core install.

O.K. let it run out (because on the first install I tried Graphical Aspect - high to see if it was working) and on the second I went for medium to see if that was the issue.

So, the third time I did medium graphics again and went finished I logged in as root and tried "apt-get lmce-hybrid" - (can't get there from here).

I did an apt-get update & apt-get upgrade.  Reboot.  Got Sarah, did the Media Player setup.  When software was finished downloading did the restart.

Got Flicker and menu.

The volume was very low during audio setup and Sarah so I'll have to probably go into alsamixer to adjust - will advise.

I will try to add my NAS to see if I have the same issue (from about a week ago) with the wget install.

(NAS didn't go to sleep but UpdateMedia didn't do anyrthing until I did a Resynch in webadmin.) - will advise.


Cheers

The system will do 2 things, setup lmce-core to make your system act as a core, and then it will also install lmce-md-meta to make you core into a hybrid.  there's lots going on behind the scenes there.  This dvd also has some known issues, new ones will be out soon.

Hi,

I installed snap 31356 from scratch and I updated/upgraded my system this a.m. (Sept. 17/15).

My NAS was discovered and UpdateMedia found my "videos" and id3tags.

I had to adjust alsamixer for volume - using analog stereo.

FYI - I use an USB KVM and if the port for the LMCE system is not selected (active) I receive the following message on the terminal...

init: plymouth-stop pre-start process (10471) terminated with status 1

When I switch to the active port my mouse and keyboard are discovered.  I hit "enter" and receive a command prompt.  Xwindow does not start.

The startx command provides a .Xauthority does not exist message and F7 window shows startup messages.

When I switch between KVM ports I get disconnect/reconnect messages.  This is new for me but no big deal.  I just need to boot with the KVM port active and the LMCE system comes up fine.

FYI - When I use the menu to "Power Off MD" the system reboots, it does not shutdown.

I am going to build a MD or two next.

Cheers.

Hi,

Sorry it has taken so long but I finally attempted to build a MD.

When the video/audio wizard ran I received text only.

There was STEP0 in red, STEPS 1,2,3, etc in green and no fields listed.

If I pressed the space bar the connecter, dpi and Hz boxes would pop up.

I could select HDMI, 1080p and 60 hz.  Then press enter key, the screen would go dark, but instead of moving on to Step2 the system would go into a loop back to Step 1 choices.


Cheers.
