kubuntu 9.04
« on: April 23, 2009, 02:38:42 pm »
Hallo,

I want to start with LinuxMCE and I'm afraid I have to reinstall my machine for it.  Because (k)ubuntu 9.04 is due to come out shortly I wanna go for that one.  I was wondering if somebody already tried LinuxMCE 0710 on a Kubuntu 9.04 RC.

Thanks,


sambuca

Welcome Dupie,

I don't think anyone has tried 0710 with Kubuntu 904, as the installation guide http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Installation_Guide specifically says that 0710 is only meant to be used with Kubuntu 0710.

I wouldn't expect it to work on Kubuntu 0904.

best regards,
sambuca

Hi,

Btw, ubuntu/kubuntu/etc. is already released.

I have already upgraded my wife's machine.

I am going to try building LinuxMCE on Kubuntu 9.04 from source... Any help from anyone who is experienced in building LinuxMCE from source is greatly appreciated. I need to use 9.04 because of the Intel video driver situation (Core and both MDs use various versions of the X3100 chipset).

If I manage to do it,... I may possibly try to build an Alpha DVD installation disk for it... However, my build may be hardware specific.

Hardware list;

Core: Dell 530 w/ 4GB RAM, 320 GB HD (4 partitions, /, Swap, /mnt/recovery/ and a small /home), Dual Core 7200, Intel X3100 vidoe chipset (embeded), 2 Haupauge HVR-1600 boards (only one in it right now until I figure out how to configure these damn things), & soon to have a Tricklestar 300ZW-US-W controller and an HDHomeRun.
MD #1: Dell Studio Hybrid attached to a widescreen Sanyo LCD TV
MD #2: Asus EEE Box B202 attached to another widescreen Sanyo LCD TV
Possible MDs: 2 Neuros OSD attached to older LCD TVs
Possible Orbiter: PepperPad 3 (if I can get it working again) &/or Aigo MID p8888w (if I buy one)
See my User page on the LinuxMCE Wiki for a description of my system configuration (click the little globe under my profile pic).

Is there any way to put an additional criteria on this such as "is media playing?" before doing the power down?
