Compatible Products & Services / Re: linuxmcestore comming soon.
« on: February 29, 2008, 05:11:24 pm »
I for one would be happy to shop at a store that has done the hard work for me. That is, finding compatible hardware and putting it altogether in one place. I also don't mind paying more for that service. I am as much a geek as anybody, but I find I often get frustrated combing through forums and scouring the net trying to find parts that work well together. Many times I am disappointed with the results. Being able to buy hardware that I'm reasonably certain will play nicely together is worth more than the 5-10% or so I might save buying it somewhere else.

I think I had the same problem. eth0 was assigned an address in the 200 range but an alias (eth0:0) was assigned which is the same as my router. As soon as this became active (during install) all downloads started failing.

I got around it by editing /etc/network/interfaces and restarting networking. Now the install is proceeding again. Not sure what it will do about the failed downloads. I will have to wait for the reboot to see.

Yep, same issue here. The installer created an alias eth0:0 and assigned it the address of my router. I caught the problem during install and removed the alias, but it appears that mysql and some other processed may not have been started. After the installation continued, I saw some mysql scripts fail. That just can't be good... There really needs to be some exception handling in this install script.

I also suspect, from some of the log messages flying by, that it has ignored my request to not be a dhcp server.

I had this problem as well. It completely ignored me.

Feature requests & roadmap / Single NIC installation

I would really like the option for a single NIC install, where LinuxMCE doesn't try to act as my router. For those of us with a perfectly good router already, and want to experiment with LinuxMCE, this is a big issue.

I second this. I don't currently own a Tivo, but maybe this could be a way for us to get premium HD content into LinuxMCE.
