I'll start off my post by saying this seems network related..

After some issues and some new equipment that I wanted to add to the system (USB-UIRT and Zwave controller). I decided I'd like to do a fresh install. However, after installing I noticed that some of the screens in the setup wizard (particularly the one where you add the win32codec and dvdcss) seemed to have a black area with nothing in them to select. During my last install of 0710, I was able to click and highlight the packages to install and everything worked fine.
After completing the setup without adding the dvdcss and w32codecs, I noticed that my flickr screen saver was not running. I have a black background and the menus along the bottom to navigate with. I try to play a CD or DVD and the media is not identified.

At this point, I'm thinking I have a network issue going on so I go to the KDE Desktop and open a terminal window. Ping my external interface, good. Ping my DSL Router, good. Ping www.google.com, good. Open a browser, go to www.google.com, good.

Is there something I'm missing? My hardware is listed in my sig and I am currently setup with UI2 with blending. I've tried switching to regular UI2 and that made no difference.

Funny thing is, I had a relatively fresh install of 0704 going this afternoon without problem. (I just had to muck with it and go back to 0710 beta 2 so that my DVD audio and video would be in sync.)

By the way, I've reinstalled this system quite a few times now between 0704 and 0710 beta2. I'm just trying to get a totally stable setup going then I promise to leave it alone. :)


I searched around for an answer but didn't find any that look like they related to this issue so my apologies if it's already been answered somewhere else. Thanks for your help in advance.

I can confirm that flickr, cd id and other network services are working on fresh install of 0710b2...
But the Core needed some time...

I have 2 MD's up and running too, and all is well there too.
One is running 64bit and one is running 32bit.

I finally managed to install my HVR4000 card as well in 0710b2... Never got the driver working in 0704.

Andy - you need to configure your WAN side network setting in Web Admin after install. Once this is done then you will find that external access to Web sites like flickr will work immediately. The Add Software screen in the wizard take a few mins to populate at it has to download its software list.

Thanks for the replies..
I went into the Admin site and verified that my external card is using DHCP and the address is inside the scope that my DSL modem gives out.
Here's the pertinent network info:
DSL Router Internal Interface:
192.168.0.1
DHCP Scope
192.168.0.2-254

Core External Interface eth1
IP address from DHCP
192.168.0.4
Default Gateway:
192.168.0.1 (DSL Modem)

I went ahead and clicked on Update after verifying the settings in the Admin website. This seemed to make a bit of a difference since with the "Add Software" screen from the Setup Wizard. The programs are now listed in the area that was black and empty before.

However, the flickr screen saver is still not working (I just have a black background and the menu's along the bottom of the screen)
The cd id program is also not working though.

If I go to the KDE desktop, I am able to browse the web just fine though.

I do not currently have anything hooked up to my Internal interface on the Core as this is my only machine on that network. I'll be adding MD's when I get the core up and running.

Any other ideas?

One more note on the "Add Software" screen.
When I click on a package to install it, I get a screen saying it could take up to 30 minutes to download and install (this part is normal). After clicking "Yes", I'm taken back to the "Add Sofware" screen and I then receive a message in the upper left corner that says
"Installation of libdvdcss aborted: Download of valid source for package failed"

I had a similar problem - very little would work from LMCE but everything would work from KDE. Turned out that appserver was not starting up properly. However, I was getting a black screen with a button on it saying "Not all the devices on this MD started up correctly" - which is something you don't seem to be mentioning. Worth a shot though - check all the logs in Pluto to see if there is something not starting up correctly.

Best Regards,
Richard.
