LMCE crash after installed both VDR and Mythtv
« on: April 06, 2008, 10:05:14 pm »
Ok, this is double posted, I created this thread under Users, but got no response. Maybe it suits better under Installation issues:

Suddenly when I start my system I get this error message in the Lauch Manager: initialize_LMdevice:connect failed.
Basically LMCE will not start, and goes into an endless waiting loop (the cursor is just a "spinning wheel"). The X background is all black, all I can see is the Launch Manager window. I can open LMCE Web Admin though another computer and also SSH.

I wonder if it has something to do with that I first installed VDR then also Mythtv (Huh). Is this a big messup, and if so, how do I unistall VDR?
Anyone who knows what to do, or at least which logs I should look into?

I am running 0710b4 amd64.

If no one helps I have to reinstall my system :-[

to be honest although I tried all sorts of things to clean up after this...
it was never right till I bit the bullet and did a clean reinstall!
if my results are anything to go by.. this wont be your last reinstall
and at least the installer is relatively painless!
just take your time answering all the questions!!!
a few minutes extra during the installation phase can save hours of work later!!
particularly those of network setup and choosing VDR or Myth!!
good luck!!
