Installation issues / Re: Clarification needed
« on: April 06, 2007, 02:57:04 am »

DO you have a HAL? device, you can disable this in the webinterface http://linuxmce-ip/ then Automation -> Device status
click HAL, then click the check button Disabled, now SAVE.

Think the HAL is some light controll stuff, which atleast I dont have.

2^) For the nvidia drivers that's the _tricky_ part, but i've tried to write down my steps on how i did it in the "Why only vesa" Thread in this forum.

What graphics board do you have?

Feel free to stop re-installing, it's only matter of configuring it correctly :-)
Only problem with linuxMCE so far, it's not as plug and play as it is supposed to be, but i guess this just takes some time :-)

Sounds stange,
Then let's get brutal:
1) killall screen
2)killall -9 xinit
3)killall xfwm4

you did type sudo NVIDIA.....
su NVIDIA ..... would just say, user not found or similaer.

I read it :P

We'll just have to wait and see, guess this project has a LOT of interest, so who knows put the bugs in this forum and see what happens :)

That sounds fine :-)
Try that :-)

If it screams about an running xserver, do a: killall xinit

If you really are at runlevel 1, that's the same as Single user mode.
Can more the less be seen as "Safe mode" in windows.

Ubuntu X starts or LinuxMCE launches?

Has it been like this since you originally installed ubuntu?
you say telinit 3 does not work, because it boots you into ubuntu, take it as the ubuntu X is starting and you get the desktop,
if you try to run The nvidia installer from there you get complaints about X is running, ctrl-alt-backspace should stop X
then login to a console, sudo su

Try to install the NVIDIA driver now.

After some restarting, and more testing ( to check if the system works, and is more the less reliable ) an unpleasant thing happened today, when linuxmce was "Starting up", i noticed it downloaded updates, and installed them/Applied them automatically.

Guess what got the transparancy issue again, got a little frustrated so i browsed the /usr/pluto/bin directory and found a file called, and added another exit;

Did the same thing with (just to be sure).

Then i ran the NVIDIA .run file again (from and did a reboot, hopefully things will be more reliable now.

Didnt use much time researching, but guess it updated my kernel and rendered the nvidia kernel module useless, or it removed some of the nvidia files. either way, the fix wasn't hard.

I want a system which doesnt update itself upon bootup,  i'll just do apt-get update myself and write it on my calender for every other week or so :)

Good to hear you got it running efiniti1 and bawbag31.

wolfbite, the problem is that linuxmce constantly changes it back. and tries it's own drivers vesa or nv.

Installation issues / Re: Stop Checking for Nvidia-Glx darn you...
« on: April 03, 2007, 12:30:56 am »
If you guys doesnt get it working, and have followed my steps above, there probably is a conflicting nvidia module loaded
type: dmesg in the console and check for this line:
 NVRM: loading NVIDIA UNIX x86 Kernel Module  1.0-9755  Mon Feb 26 23:21:15 PST 2007
That's the newest module, if you have a conflicting installed module the nr is probably something like 1.0-7XXX

if so you will need to remove the nvidia-glx package via apt-get remove nvidia-glx
then reinstall the nvidia drivers (from you might need to apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.17.XXX <-- new version nr)

Dont be afraid to pm, i'll be glad to help when i get the time,.

before you modify you have to become root user
to do this:

type: sudo su
then enter the password for your user.

You should now have become root user, and have permission to edit the file.

Users / Re: How do you close LinuxMCE
« on: April 01, 2007, 11:05:34 pm »
most processes residres within each own screen process,
so doing killall -9 screen would kill most linuxMCE processes.
