Users / Remote login from Vista or XP into kubuntu
« on: February 23, 2008, 08:19:24 am »
I am looking for a way to remote login from my Vista or XP machines into kubuntu to make tweaks from my desk instead of sitting in front of the tv (convenience). Can anyone recommend any tools for this? I am a newbie in terms of linux networking, so some pointers to tutorials in this regard will be highly appreciated. Thanks.


Users / Script to play music from a playlist at start
« on: February 21, 2008, 10:29:35 pm »
I plan to use the 'wake on alarm' feature of the motherboard to start/resume LMCE at a fixed time in the morning and/or evening. I want it to play music from a specified playlist at that time. Any ideas on how I can do this? If someone can provide directions and some samples, I can try it out and post the final script here. Thanks!


Users / Adding additional hard drive disables LMCE from booting up
« on: February 12, 2008, 08:43:06 am »
I had installed LMCE with only 1 SATA drive in the system. Later on I added another SATA drive. Kubuntu  bootup was saying that '/dev/sda1' could not be found and just loaded the shell.

How do I get it to bootup with the first drive after adding the second drive? My grand plan was to store all music, movies etc. on the second drive. That way even if I reinstall the final version for 0710, my media would be safe on the second drive. Does anyone know how to do this?

Can this even be done or is this a limitation of LMCE?

Users / Display problem with nVidia 8600GT card on 1080p TV
« on: January 30, 2008, 09:27:11 am »
I was able to install 0710 b3 on my HTPC, but when it boots up, the login is displayed only for a second and disappears. Is this a problem with the driver? I have the ASUS nvidia 8600 GT card and have hooked this up to a Sharp Aquos 1080p TV using a DVI to HDMI cable. Is the nvidia 8xxx series supported in LMCE 0710?

Any suggestions on how I can get around this? Do I get LMCE working on a regular monitor display first and then try it out with the TV display? Please let me know.



Users / Hard Drive / Install Configuration for repeated installs
« on: January 19, 2008, 06:41:05 pm »
Now that 710b3 is out, I intend to install it and play around with this version of LMCE. I do have a question/suggestion for documentation (willing to document it myself if the answers are given on this thread).

How do you setup your hard-drive configuration so you can re-install LMCE without erasing your media?
e.g. If I have 2 hard-drives, 500 GB each, am I required to reserve ALL of one drive for LMCE (this is overkill in terms of space needed)? I was thinking of partitioning the first drive to 100 & 400 GB partitions and use the 400 GB partition for recording TV etc. Is 100 GB sufficient for LMCE for the long term? Will re-install of the next LMCE version erase my 400 GB partition TV recordings? What about the other 500 GB hard-drive? Do I need to unplug it when re-installing LMCE to prevent erasing my media? I am asking this because I know I will end up re-installing LMCE atleast 2 - 3 times before it is 'finalized'.

I can collect answers from here and put out a 'best practice' on the Wiki if people post answers to this thread.
