Installation issues / Re: newbie installation woes
« on: April 28, 2011, 02:03:12 pm »

It would appear that, when the script failed with the ksudo problem the first time. It never got as far as rewriting the sources file. After the initial failure, I went to a CLI to run my favourite filebrowser, discovered its absence and attempted to apt-get install. Thats when I discovered the sources issue. apt-get was displaying what looked to be similar errors to the script. I ran Adept and played around with various mirrors till I got it working. Rerunning the script still failed, but reading the earlier posts in this thread about the ksudo problem has gotten me past that.

Now, to the black screen I was getting during the AVwizard stage appears to have been caused by the presence of an analogue TV capture card (Winfast 2000 XP). After removing it from the system it, the AV wizard ran without a hitch.

Now all I have to do is get it to talk to my Dynalite lighting system   :-)

Thanks for all the advice.

In my case I dont think it was a NIC issue. I'm currently using a SMC 1211TX, which is by no means a recent card and has had kernal support as far back as 2.2.x (possibly earlier). It works fine with Knoppix 4.0.2, 5.10 & 6.4.4. I've also used it with ubuntu server 10.10 and assorted other linux flavours over the years without any hassles.

Immediately after completing the ubuntu 810 installation, I was able to browse these forums and the wiki. However Adept & apt-get failed to work until I changed the repository server from the local Australian mirrors to the main Canonical server.

After that, running the LinuxMCE script would fail immediately after the ksudo error came up and I did anything with the error message. After seeing the posts above I reran the script and ignored the error and after nearly 4 hours it installed.

Now all I have to do is solve this blank screen on reboot issue and I'm away. Something for tommorow night methinks.

I found the same ksudo problem whilst attempting my first installation over the last few days.

I also found that I had to change the Ubuntu repository from the local mirror (Australia) that was selected during the first stages of the installation to the main Ubuntu repository.
