pluto-orbiter failed to install?
« on: December 03, 2009, 10:13:05 am »
During ./mce-install.sh I get the message that pluto-orbiter failed to install due to missing dependencies, notably pluto-avwizard and xine-ui.

Obviously orbiter doesn't start up. It's a hybrid setup with a fresh install of 8.10 (internet install). When X starts I get some huge text flashing on the screen "installing" a bunch of packages (including the ones mentioned above). And then a blank screen. avwizard has never appeared at any point.

I've manually installed pluto-avwizard, xine-ui, and pluto-orbiter, which seemed successful, and when it boots into X I get a window with the title "Failed to connect to DCE router"?

How do I fix this, and how can I make avwizard start so that I can make the appropriate settings?

I have the same problem. How can I manually install pluto-avwizard and other stuff? Linux is pretty new to me. What are the commands to do that?

tnx

Same problem.

get the beta2.
I (we) use internet install (http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/LinuxMCE-0810_beta#Internet_Installation).
Should this not mean that we get beta2 - or rather simply the latest and greatest?

I also tried to install the beta2 from DVD. Got this yesterday via torrent. Burned the .iso image but it brings many errors. Not sure if this is my DVD-drive or the .iso file. Thats why I tried installing via web again. :-(

Same here, after having  a working beta1 setup (net) decided to upgrade, which borked my test system. Downloaded the beta 2 iso which is, during installation, complaining about missing packages (xine etc)

I have the same problem as the topicstarter
Did the net-installation 6 times now, and it get's stuck at that point.
Thought I had faulty burner or something, but seeing I am not alone, I am retrieving it from the bin.

I've run into what sounds like the same problem.
upgraded from Beta1 to Beta2 - all pkgs seemed to update correctly on the core.

Meanwhile I've been fighting with an MD failing to boot so decided to re-run Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh so I'd have the latest image for a re-build of my MD image

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.                                   

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against         
that package should be filed.                                         
The following information may help to resolve the situation:           

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  pluto-orbiter: Depends: pluto-avwizard (>= 2.0.0.44) but it is not going to be installed
                 Depends: pluto-avwizard (< 2.0.0.45) but it is not going to be installed
                 PreDepends: xine-ui but it is not going to be installed                 
E: Broken packages                                                                       
#### Package pluto-orbiter failed (/tmp/tmp.sDlJN13878) - We wait 10sec and try again - to stop retrying press Ctrl-C.
I tried forcing xine-ui install but it says its at the latest version.
avwizard version on core is at pluto-avwizard = 2.0.0.44.09120322558

Somebody made a ticket??
Seems like a valid bug, and no quick solution avalaible.

Update1
Made a ticket

Maybe the new net install files will work, going to give it a try
Keep you posted

Not to be a wiseguy, cannot check at the moment.
But why wouldn't it be?
Just followed the wiki as I did with alpha and beta1

In my case I may have removed the avenard repo as it was causing problems with the myth install.
There is another post http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=9232.0 where the avenard repo is removed and it didn't cause Viking an issue.

I've since put it back into my sources.list.
No extra packages added after an update/dist-upgrade on the Core, but the diskless image create script is downloading a heap more, will update here once the script completes.

I had this problem exactly and it was because the avenard 'release' repo was not in /etc/apt/sources.list it was in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/avenard.list (I had put it there manually during alpha days and upgraded to beta2)...  This causes the DisklessCreate_TBZ.sh to fail.  Put the avenard repo /etc/apt/sources.list as posde says and it worked like a charm!

No it wasn't, I've added it and mce-install.sh seems to be getting much further. I guess this step should be mentioned in the install wiki? Also worth putting in there would be the steps to configure the nvidia drivers, and the different versions required: http://www.nvidia.com/object/IO_18897.html

I've just seen http://deb.linuxmce.org/ubuntu/new-installer-beta2.tar.gz has appeared now as well. I'm sure it wasn't there yesterday when I looked for it. I will give that a try in a couple of hours.

I can confirm that. 24 hours ago there was still the old installer file online. I will try the new one instead!
