Acer Aspire R1600
« on: October 09, 2009, 09:12:43 pm »
Trying to install LMCE 810 on an Acer Aspire R1600 and document the process here:  http://wiki.linuxmce.com/index.php/Acer_Aspire_Revo_1600 as that there didn't seem to be a running wiki link for this unit and it's now available in the us.


I tried following this:  http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/MythTV#EXPERIMENTAL:_Update_MythTV_to_VDPAU_version_on_0810 posted in this topic:  http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=8455.15

but get an error that libvdpau0 cannot be installed as experienced here:  http://74.125.95.132/search?q=cache:l5vnFgHXS2wJ:https://launchpad.net/bugs/326720+libvpau&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us

Anyone else run into this?  It looks like, from that post, that all you need to do is uninstall the previous versions of glx.  Going to try this when I get home...

Nevermind- not sure what I did, trying to retrace my steps, but it's now working.  Even nicer, I got the nvidia 190 drivers installed and got UI2 medium working- need to play with it some to see how it behaves, but not getting the "Unable to open OpenGL" is a big start.

Will hope to document as I go on.

I guess you mean the Revo R3600 right?
