Dianemo Installation
« on: March 08, 2015, 01:44:30 am »
Completely changing my post as I've done a complete reinstall of 12.04.

I've tried the dianemo-installer 1.20 and 1.21 (on different installation attempts) and both return the same result.  Ubuntu says, "The system network services are not compatible with this version." 

ifconfig only lists my lo at 127.00.1.  lshw -class network, however lists my wireless adapters in addition to both of my wired connections.  After the 12.04 install, both NICs worked just fine- it was only (guessing) 3/4 of the way through the Dianemo install that it died.

Install log just reflects "Installation FAILED: Nerve Centre".

Any thoughts on getting this back up? 

Here's my lspci -nnk | grep -i -A2 net:

Next edit- was able to edit /etc/network/interfaces, set eth0 to dhcp, ifup eth0 to not have an ip.  Running dianemo-software-update.sh just tells me that "package dianemo-orbiter is not configured yet".

Quick update/reply to may post.  After update && upgrade on the standard Ubuntu packages (pre-Dianemo) my nics were not supported by default.  Don't fully understand why, but not a Dianemo issue.

That said, Andrew and his Dianemo team were extremely responsive and helpful getting the system up and running- beyond the scope of what I thought my license did/should have included.

In-laws are happy again to have their squeezeboxes running.
