Hi, I recently install LinuxMCE 1.1 Beta 2 from Kubuntu (I installed KDE from aptitude in Ubuntu, then changed the session to KDE and installed LinuxMCE).

When my computer tries to boot, it sticks at "* Running local boot scripts (/etc/rc.local)             [ OK ]" and continues to switch between two screens. The first screen looks like a normal boot process, with "[ OK ]"s down the right hand side, and the other screen just says "* Starting MySQL database server mysqld"

Any suggestions?

Now it's stuck at:

* Reloading /etc/samba/smb.conf                [ OK ]
* Running local boot scripts (/etc/rc.local)    [ OK ]
* Reloading /etc/samba/smb.conf                      _

This has not reached [ OK ] yet. Could my problem be related to Samba?

check /var/log/syslog  ( open a console: CTRL+ALT+F2, login, type: tail -f /var/log/syslog , tail -f /var/log/messager could also help you troubleshoot your problem )
There you should see if you have errors with mounting samba shares. Rebooting the PC sometimes resolves this problem.

Do the following if on a Hybrid Core with a kde desktop;

Type Ctrl + Alt + 1 (ie hold them all down at the same time)

Then login using your username & password

Now navigate to the /etc/init.d directory by typing the following;

cd /etc/init.d/ <type return>

Now rename the file kdm.saved to kdm by typing;

sudo mv kdm.saved kdm <type return>
Enter your password at the prompt <type return>

now you need to reboot

Now when your system comes back up login and then you should either go straight to the KDE desktop or straight into the linux-mce Orbiter

....However is the machine that your experiencing this problem on is a PXE booted MM then this usually indicates that there is a problem with your xorg.conf and your video hardware is not being correctly configured and the xserver can't load. It then comes down to what your video hardware is as what you need to do to fix the problem.

Hopefully the above is helpful
