Installation issues / DVD doesn't boot
« on: January 28, 2010, 07:44:27 pm »

I've got a really strange issue with installation, I can't boot the DVD.

I have ruled out it being a bad download by booting on another machine.

I have ruled out the machine being duff by booting another linux Distro from CD and Windows Home Server from DVD.

Has anyone got any ideas?

Feature requests & roadmap / Automatic Hardware Profiler

Would it be possible to create some kind of hardware profiling system that automatically profiles the hardware on your machine and updates a central database?  Rather than just being a list of hardware I was thinking it could be a central repository of drivers that gets updated as people manage to get hardware working.

So for instance when I install LinuxMCE and can't get my VIA graphics card to work straight out of the box, I do some searching on the internet, find the correct drivers and get it working.  I then profile my hardware and the drivers I have used get uploaded to the server, so that the next person who installs LinuxMCE gets out of the box support.

I appreciate that this would probably be very complicated to do, but if it is possible it should enable hardware support to expand much more rapidly and with fewer idiots like me wasting experts time.

Thanks for all the great work on this impressive software,

Hi All,

I have been playing with MythBuntu for a while now and decided that it was time to give LinuxMCE a whirl.  Visited a computer fair yesterday and bought some new hardware to use as a dedicated Core:

Motherboard:   Asus M2N32-SLI
Graphics:        Asus EN8400GS  (Basically NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS)

I have tried both the CD and DVD installs and get the same result, a black screen with monitor stating no signal immediately after telling it to install.  So I then tried turning off quiet and splash on the KUbuntu CD, it gets further but still no Joy.  I would appreciate any advice on how to get this working, LinuxMCE looks amazing (Well done for all the hard work).  To confirm that the Hardware isn't faulty I have installed MythBuntu 8.10 without any issues.  I am aware of the normal Newbie problem with not selecting the correct output/res and I am sure it isn't this.

Many thanks,
