Hi,
Would you please PM me, if you get your Revo to work when you gets it? I have tried for some time but without luck.

Sorry, I got "burned" with my current hardware, so I am not going to buy it before someone using stock 0810 confirms that it works.
I have spent weeks trying to get it stable and stutterfree running with 0710 + VDR and did not really succeed. I am now trying with 0810 and MythTV instead. Until now it look quite good, only the switching times are not so good on DVB-s - 4 seconds for a channel swith is a llittle much. And I have not yet tried on my 1080p TV. Util now I am only testing stability and functions on a hybrid test server I have got.


But what is your problem with the Revo ?

Greetings
Viking

Hi Andrew,

All our Revo's are working fine. But you do need updated nVidia & Alsa packages etc.
I don't like the "etc." ;) what hides behind that ?
And you are probably using your version of Convergence LinuxMCE with some changes - or ?

Greetings

Nothing hidden at all. Of course we are testing on our Dianemo-0710 build (with updated nVidia & Alsa packages) and also the 0810 Alpha builds too.

One friend of mine trying to install LMCE core to that nettop. He cannot install 0710 because there is a problem with Atheros WiFi. Did you have such problem and if so, how did you solve that?

TIA

I was told that my problem was because of the madwifi driver, but I can't find it anywhere in the disk image.

My Revo just stops booting when it comes to ath_pci. There isen't anyway of disabling wifi in BIOS, only all the network an that is a bad idea on a device that should netboot  :)

Best regards

On 0710 just remove the 'ath' drivers in madwifi

Thanks, Andrew, for your answer. But could you explain me, please, how to do it during DVD installation? Or it should be used CD installer?

just ssh into your Core and navigate into the relevant directory for the moonXX (ie the machine that is your Ion based MD);

cd /usr/pluto/diskless/XX/lib/modules/2.6.22-14-generic/madwifi

The delete all the ath modules;

rm ath*

Now boot moonXX and your boot ptoblem should be solved.

All the best

Andrew

Obviously longterm we need to fix this problem with the ath drivers. Going to a more recent build for the driver may well be all that is needed.
