Hi any help appreciated...
I am trying to setup a system already since the "pluto days"
I have been waiting for more stable versions and lighting interface that work in Europe etc.
I really feel this is a promissing project and bought myself 2 pc's with the M2NPV-VM motherboard and 1GB memory to be able to test LinuxMCE.
I don't have any other stuff yet, because I want a running system first. Untill now I never got a stable running system and need some help with the diskless MD.
I have installed 0710. First from DVD, but that did not work, crashed 3x at unpacking the data.
From CD it worked fine and now I have a hybrid setup & running.
The hybrid machine has a single core AMD Athlon 64 3800+. It runs OK exept the screensaver hangs after the system has not been touched for like 20 hours.
I have a MD (same motherboard and firmware) with a dual core AMD athlon 64 4200+.
Two pc's are connected by a crosscable. With the previous version it worked OK at least the first time I booted the MD, second time was a problem always.
When I startup the MD now with 0710 it announxes itself at the router and the core installes the files for the MD. It is also present in the admin pages.
Then it continues and shows "Running diskless setup.sh"
After 10 seconds it says "diskless setup failed", in red.
When I restart the router (reboot or quickreload) and try again, the MD after some time comes up with the same message.
Anyone a clue?
Can it be the single core dual core mix?
Can it be the crosscable?
ps. I enabled Nvidia LAN boot ROM and chose "Nvidia Boot Age" to boot from in the Bios. That should be the right setting for this motherboard ? I thought I remebered another option called Legacy LAN but I don't see that anymore.
