Building for 0810
« on: November 10, 2008, 09:41:08 pm »
I am reading the wiki link (which points to Building for 0804) and pulling down Kubuntu now but just wanted to clarify something on making the install discs. If I want to make cd's, its as simple as running the noted scripts and does not require a vm instance whereas if i wanted to make the dvd, I would then need a vm instance?

Thanks!

Don't complicate matters - 1) use the torrent to download, 2) download the DVD (you only need the CDs if you have a specific reason to use them instead of the DVD).

Download the DVD iso, use md5sum to confirm the checksum, then burn to a DVD at the slowest possible speed your burner supports.

Put the disk in the drive, and boot from it - be aware that by default it will wipe everything on the drive (not just partition) that you point it at.

You do not need to download Kubuntu, and 0804 and 0810 are not relevent to LMCE at this point. Just download the DVD - everything is on that.

Appreciate the seasoned advice, I was just eager to preview what was in the current tree and keen on the experience/knowledge gained from doing it this way.
Are there any places to look for more detailed info on building the dvd then http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Building_LinuxMCE as it leaves out any detail on that step.

O/T under this thread, but I was curious about any enhancements to Insteon products, namely the 2412N as that's all I have.

Thanks for the quick reply and i appreciate any insight!

yes, you only need the vm for the dvd build.

Thank you Hari,
I started the first script last night to pull down the dev deps and as this script finishes installing stuff it continues to prompt for a MySQL root pw, should I configure one? Is there a place later that I would need to configure what ever pass I entered?

Appreciate all the help!

Just hit enter, it pops up about 3 times.  In upcoming versions of the build scripts it will be possible to set a password for root's mysql account, but for now it will break the build if you do.

PS. You might also want to run "svn update" from the /root/Ubuntu_Helpers_NoHardcode directory to update the build scripts every now and then, as Hari pointed out things are still under development at the moment.

Great,
I am passed that and still pulling in deps. Forgive me as I only have RHEL experience but does Debian/Kubuntu have a yum-fastestmirror equiv as I am getting really bad dl speeds pulling in stuff like gcc etc?

Thanks!

All seems to have gone well until cd2-prepare.sh
Any ideas here?
Thanks!

Those are unsorted dependencies in conf-files/intrepid-*/cd2-packages you can either sort them out and send in a patch or ignore them for now, the result is that in the end cd2 will come up light... Work in progress and all that.

I have been attempting to get my AMD + Via GPU based Averatec working under 8.10 without any joy on the Via front at all. It looks like there just is no xserver-xorg-video-via package currently at all under Xorg 7.4 http://www.x.org/wiki/Releases/7.4

All the best

some of the packages just aren't there anymore, some of them say they were replaced with other packages. Do you think it would be wise to try the replacement packages for those that says are available?

That is what needs to be done, yes.  And then the cd2 package list should be updated to reflect these changes.
