I have tried to install LinuxMCE but keep having problems so will go through the list in case I am missing something really basic!
Tried the DVD install, but I cannot write to dual layer DVD's so cannot burn to a DVD!
Install Kubuntu 8.10, installed ok on about 3rd attempt, but really slow!
After this I tried to install MCE, but could only install the installer, which did nothing when I clicked on it. Having read the installation manual, I realised that it was probably because I had Kubuntu 8.10 on, so downloaded a copy of 7.10.
This boots fine when I try the option to try Kubuntu, I can run and get into the desktop, but when I click on the "Install" option, the installation freezes at the "Checking file system" stage and I have to reboot. Tried this several times, including the OEM and "skip this step" options, but the installer still freezes!
Figuring that I would give up and use Elisa instead, I installed Ubuntu 8.10, this installed perfectly and runs smoothly. Figuring it was worth a try, I have tried to install MCE on Ubuntu. The installer runs and asks me for all the CD iso's, which are all on the desktop. However, after selecting all the iso's, the installer then flags and error that it cannot cache Linux MCE disc 1.
I know I have gone a long and round about path to this! So......
- Is it possible to install MCE onto Ubuntu?
- If not, should I try re-installing it on Kubuntu 8.10?
- If the install has to be on Kubuntu 7.10, why does 7.10 not install correctly? (though I realise this may be the wrong forum for this question!)
Thanks in advance for all your help!
