this week I tried the first time to get linuxmce running. Up until now I've been running my server with Suse, but I figured LMCE would be my thing. I have my server with two nics, one connected to my DSL-Modem (realy only modem, not a router) and the other one to my switch, where my other two computers are attached. Both my workstations run vista64.
With my Suse-setup its all business as usual. However the LMCE doesn't give any of them IPs. I did the installation with the DVD, which is supposed to be more or less plug and play. After some reading around I also found out, how to get my DSL-connection running, if only until the next reboot. So the core at least has access to the internet.
I went to the KDE-Desktop to check if the DHCP-server is even running, but when I checked in the Systemservices there were actually a lot of services, including DHCP3-server and Bind, who were not running, and wouldn't be started. So I don't know if LMCE's management of those services is somehow hidden from the KDE-Desktop or not.
So far my biggest problem is to get my workstations online again. I did try to put a fixed IP on one of my computers, but I still couldn't connect. So unless someone has some inspiration for me, I guess I'll have to wait for the next release.
