After having many frustrations with Vista and MCE, I decided to try LinuxMCE out.
Now being a total linux noob, this has proved even more frustrating.
I have read the wiki, downloaded the Linux MCE CD and that's as far as I have got.
After eventually finding the mce-launcher file on some site, I ran it. Gave me plenty errors. Package not found was the most common.
Not sure if i am being extra stupid but i am failing badly. The install wiki is vague to say the least. Most of the links to download the files and dvd are broken.
To be honest, after a whole day, I am no further than i was in the beginning. Vista is not looking to bad at the moment...
Are there any good guides on how to install this? Lets face it, everyone starts off a noob. I've been around PC's, as a career, for about 12 years now and am rather advanced (if I may say so myself) and I find this process far to involved to be useful. A single file called setup.exe would be far better at getting the masses to use LinuxMCE don't you think?
Anyway, if anyone can point to a easy to follow guide, I will preserve as I actually detest Vista.
