tkmedia:

It came with Windows Vista which I deleted before trying to boot up the Revo  :)
I deleted it with a Ubuntu live cd (9.04) which boots fine on the Revo, so it must be something with the Kubuntu 8.10

Totallymaxed I'll try that as soon as I get home from work

Thank you very much for the input

Best regards

Hi again, sorry it took so long time to respond, but i thought it would be better for me to reinstall the core (maybe I broke someting or so).

I followed the install videoes Krys just made.

totallymaxed:

I can't seem to find the madwifi on my diskless device, it looks like this:

mathias@dcerouter:/usr/pluto/diskless/31/lib/modules/2.6.27-14-generic$ ls
build   modules.alias   modules.ieee1394map  modules.ofmap     modules.symbols
initrd  modules.ccwmap  modules.inputmap     modules.pcimap    modules.usbmap
kernel  modules.dep     modules.isapnpmap    modules.seriomap  volatile
mathias@dcerouter:/usr/pluto/diskless/31/lib/modules/2.6.27-14-generic$

I cant see my kernel is newer than yours but I guess that isen't the problem?

Best regards

Hi,

first some a questions

1. did you DEACTIVATE WIFI in the BIOS ?

2. where does it stop now on booting ?

3. what 0810 alpha version did you install. I did not succeed setting up an MD with an older version, should be fixed now, but I had no time to check yet. I have just installed a newer version to be able to test MythTV - did not get to testing the MD part yet.



You can may be able to install the nvidia driver using chroot. Any note on that from others ? Not sure if it wil work.

That should work something like this (out of the head) - if the MD is device 40 - other wise exchange 40 with the numer of your MD :

1. copy the driver

cd /usr/pluto/diskless/
ls -la
# Check MD number and exchange 40 with the correct number :

mkdir /usr/pluto/diskless/40/tmp/nvidia-driver

and copy the driver in there

cp ...

2. chroot to your MD

cd /usr/pluto/diskless
ls -la
# Check MD number and exchange 40 with the correct number :
chroot 40

Now you are so to say using the MD image. It is "mapped" on top of your Core install (nothing will happen with the core instal though)  and can install the nvidia driver with :

cd /tmp/nvidia-driver
sh ./Nvidia*

exit

- now you are back on your core. Try booting.

Maybe also upgrade ALSA the same way as an upgrade there also shoud be needed.

Hi Viking.

Thank you for your reply :)

1. I can't find anywhere in BIOS where I can disable WIFI, only networking in general.

2. It still stops with the ath_pci since I was not able to disable wifi in BIOS I guess.

3. Iam running this version: http://deb.linuxmce.org/ubuntu/new-installer-alpha-latest.tar.gz (installed it 7 days ago).

I would try installing the nvidia driver using chroot when I get home.

Best Regards

Mathias

HI,

also do what Andrew told here :

http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=7846.msg57147#msg57147


It is the same place you remove the driver that has the problem. Try that first, before updateing nvidia !

My problem is that I cannot find the madwifi:

mathias@dcerouter:/usr/pluto/diskless/31/lib/modules/2.6.27-14-generic$ ls
build   modules.alias   modules.ieee1394map  modules.ofmap     modules.symbols
initrd  modules.ccwmap  modules.inputmap     modules.pcimap    modules.usbmap
kernel  modules.dep     modules.isapnpmap    modules.seriomap  volatile
mathias@dcerouter:/usr/pluto/diskless/31/lib/modules/2.6.27-14-generic$

I don't think that it's nvidia that's causing my md not to boot, I guess it's something with the networking as you guys have said and since it stops with ath_pci, but I guess that I don't even have madwifi in the kernel for the md?

Greetings

Hi,

he also had an older kernel (maybe 0710 ?).

try searching for the files, somethng like this :

find /usr/pluto/diskless/31/lib/modules -name "*mad*"

Hi Guys

Have the Revo (Windows version) for 3 weeks now. No delivery problems in the Netherlands.
I try to install Kubuntu 8.10 from USB. Boot sequence starts from USB but gets stuck somewhere, no messages
How can I get messages ??

In the discussion on this I see "turn off Wifi ACPI etc", but no-one clearly states
that he has Kubuntu 8.10 up and running. Has anyone succeeded ??

I am a bit new to forums....

Regards Paul

Then a piece of advice would be to start a new thread rather than hijacking an existing one that isn't relevant (you are not getting kernel panics), and many people will not be reading. Start a new one with a good descriptive subject name to get more people reading.
