My first experience with linuxmce 0710 beta 2.
nvidia 6200 GT
asus p5b deluxe
ordered: almost dvb-t twinhan with ci for digitenne (netherlands)
asus terminator 2p
512 MB mem
nvidia 7600GS AGP
TV: Samsung le37m87bd
Installation core went fine.
Setting up a diskless media directory did not work as expected and there were legions of trouble getting my tv (samsung 1080p) recognized and set up.
But after editing the xorg.conf manually with the settings i saved from the last time it went ok. (3-4 hours)
Now the md is running, i wanted to get accelerated video playback for mpeg2.
So i downloaded a mpeg2 file and tried playing without xvmc that worked as expected.
Now i tried it with xxmc but that only froze my xine player.
So back to the command line and take a look at what happens.
xine -V xxmc -A alsa file.mpg2
it just froze no output nothing.
Wel after two days (bios,agp,irq,noapic,noacpi,noht) it seemed that the nvidia drivers were my trouble.
So i downgraded to 100.14.19 and then it worked the way i wanted.
So far so good i guess.
Not something for an average user.
Thanx for this release
With kind regards,
