Installation issues / Installation problems, nothing boots up
« on: May 19, 2010, 04:31:57 pm »
Hi, I've installed Kubuntu 8.10 and updated the packages before my LinuxMCE install but some packages are missing. Furthermore, when i installed LinuxMCE using the desktop icon, serveral packages were skipped again. Then, when I restarted to open the AV Wizard, i got an error about a resume file not being found. The AV Wizard did start, but in the corner of the screen. Once I'd finished it, I was left on the original resume file screen. I can use Alt+F2 to start the X Server and load the desktop but not much is working in terms of MCE.

P.S. Every time I load the desktop I have to open the terminal and type:
sudo -s (then type in my password)
ifup eth0

so that I can get the network connection working. I had to remove NetworkManager from the startup to get the connection working in the first place.

Users / Pluto MO on N96

Hi, I tred to use the Pluto MO on my Nokia N96 but it just crashes out before I see any screens to do with the program. The program should work on my phone fine (S60v3) but I've had no luck.

Anythign I can do to get it going? I've been plagued with problems with LinuxMCE and I'm starting to lose all hope I can actually get it running and doing anything I want it to.


Installation issues / Unable to seek on /dev/sda

I'm having trouble getting Linuxmce's installer to load up. I have an Asus P5Q and have set up 3 1.5TB hard drives arranged in a RAID 5 configuration (using the onboard RAID controller).

The installer failed half way through booting up with the unable to seek error and in red writing "no hard drives found".

Any ideas as to what happening?

Installation issues / Completely confused

Hi, I'm having problems getting LinuxMCE installed on one of the computers at college.

I'm using the 8.10 DVD from the download links and so far have kubuntu installed and running. The problem comes from the installer link that's left on the desktop. I click it and it opens the terminal to start doing whatever it does, then after about a minute of doing nothing a get roughly 100 lines informing me that the program can't find files at certain locations (despite being able to load those links in konqueror).

After another short while it tells me that MCE is finished installing and to restart to finish configuring MCE. However, when I restart the computer I'm back at the shell to login and startx.

I tried a network install of MCE and it kept asking me if I was root. A fellow student informed me that kubuntu had no root user.

P.S. I'm a total Linux noob. It took me 4 distros to get Linux on my PS3, ended up with YDL. Fedora just wouldn't do anything.

Users / Network boot and Bluray over network
« on: November 24, 2009, 11:55:33 am »
Hi, I'm currently part of a project at college where we're trying to set up a media server and thin client to play media on an HDTV. We're currently looking at what operating system to use and have come across LinuxMCE.

Unfortunately , I haven't been able to figure out whether or not LinuxMCE would be network bootable (a feature we decided on for ease of updates), and whether or not Blurays could be ripped to the server, then accessed from the thin client to be played back on the connected tv. This is anoter important feature as we want all media files to reside on the server so that upgrading with further thin clients is as easy as possible.

Thank you for your help and I look forward to any feedback you can offer me.
