help with 12.04 install
« on: December 13, 2015, 08:55:38 pm »
Hey all,

This is kind of a follow up to a previous issue I had here: http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=14137.0 but also something I could use a little help with.

Since my last posting, I was able to do a DVD install of 12.04. It was glitchy, but it worked well enough to at least let me play around with it and get my network set up properly. After I set up my network, I thought I'd try reinstalling 12.04 using the net install. I followed the instructions here http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Installing_1204 and was able to get Kubuntu 12.04 up and running without issue. When I followed the commands to install LMCE 12.04, it appeared to work. The machine restarted and I was able to perform the initial setup, but it seems to hang after this. The computer restarts again, and I just get something like this.

[  452.704017] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown i2c port 48
[  452.704017] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown i2c port 48
[  452.704017] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown i2c port 57
[  462.704017] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown i2c port 48
[  462.704017] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown i2c port 48
[  462.704017] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown i2c port 57
[  472.704017] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown i2c port 48
[  472.704017] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown i2c port 48
[  472.704017] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown i2c port 57

And this just keeps repeating indefinitely

I've tried this a couple times, and I get the same thing. I'm not sure where to go from here. I'm not sure if I did something wrong, or if it's a problem with the install. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thank you

How long have you left it sit?  It can be updating software in the background and that could take a bit of time...  up to 15 or 20 mins in some cases.

I let it run overnight, >12 hours, with no change.

That doesn't seem right.  Did a reboot bring anything up for you?  Without specific errors it is difficult to troubleshoot.

You can switch to VT7  ctrl-alt-F7 and see if it shows you any additional information.

I've found a bug that may be causing the issue you are experiencing.  The current dvd installs have set Autostartmedia=0 in /etc/pluto.conf.  That value needs to be a 1 for the hybrid to start.  Login at a virtual terminal and set the value to a 1 and reboot, everything should happen properly from there.

ok, so, status update....

I went to VT7, and tried to see what was going on. Unfortunately as the numbers from my first post kept increasing, the info from VT7 was quickly off the screen. I'm sure I can go back and repeat the problem to get all the information if I need to (By the way, is there an easy way to upload a picture here? I feel like that would be much easier than trying to write down all that info). However, to my inexperienced eye, it appeared to be connection issues. So, on a whim, I tried swapping which network cables went to which ports in my computer, and restarted. I no longer get the issue from the first post. Now, when the computer boots up, it goes straight to tty1 and asks for me to login to dcerouter.

I'm not sure what this means at this point. I did try logging in and changing the autostartmedia value to 1, but I'm not really sure how to type in the command correctly.

I usually post images to imgur and put a link here to it.

Code: [Select]
nano /etc/pluto.conf

change the line Autostartmedia=0 to Autostartmedia=1

Press ctrl-x to initiate a save and exit.

Reboot.

Hope that helps.

It appears the initial problem has been resolved, so I'm not going to bother talking about that again, unless anybody thinks it's relevant. I just had the input and output network cables in the wrong ports.

However, I am having a new problem that I mentioned in my last post. Every time I boot up my computer, I get stuck at this:

Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS dcerouter tty1

dcerouter login:


As was suggested, I logged in and tried to change Autostartmedia to 1, but it was already set to 1 (I did an internet install, not a DVD install, if that matters).

Just playing around, I tried changing Autostartcore to 0, but that didn't do anything. I changed it back to 1.

VT7 indicates that everything is OK.

Reading the forums, it appears that other people are having the same issue. It looked like some people ran an upgrade, and it appeared to work for them, so I did that as well, but no luck.  I'm still stuck at dcerouter login.

I'm not sure where to go from here. Any other thoughts?

Thank you

Run

Code: [Select]
/usr/pluto/bin/RebootWithAVWizard.sh.

depending on your video card type and the speed of your machine it can take up to 30mins for ubuntu to compile all the dkms kernel modules before being able to start X.

pastebin the output of 'ps ax' and you can check the Launch Manager screen session by typing: screen -r LMCE    (use ctrl-a then 'd' to exit the screen session).

I ran the reboot with AV Wizard command, and completed the AV setup. Following this, the computer rebooted, and returned to the dcerouter login. I logged in and entered root, and ran the command "screen -r LMCE."

From here, I just watched it for a while. It repeated tried to connect to the router, but ultimately, was never able to make a connection. The final line states "Failed to connect to dcerouter."

Additionally, I've noticed that when I reboot the computer, I see a line in red that states "Cannot communicate with router."

Could this be the source of the problem?

This is definitely a problem.  I'm not sure why specifically at the moment.  Can you post the contents (or pastebin the contents) of /etc/pluto.conf ?

Thanks,

J.

See if dcerouter is running. ie. ps ax | grep DCERouter -i

My apologies for the delayed response. I got distracted with a few other things, but I thought I should provide a quick update here.

I hadn't touched my system for a little while so yesterday I thought I'd just start from scratch and do a reinstall of Kubuntu 1204 and a net install of LMCE 1204. It started right up without any issue. I'm not sure what's changed since my last attempt back in December, but whatever was done has fixed my issues. I just made it through the entire setup without a hitch, and it recognized all my devices that I had plugged in. So far it seems to be working perfectly. I'm going to spend some time this week getting everything configured, and hopefully, I won't run into any more issues.

I did notice on the Wiki page that it says most people should now download 1404. I might try doing that before I get too deep into 1204.
