810 beta2 net install linuxmce does not see media drive
« on: January 19, 2010, 03:32:40 am »
two days ago i did a dvd install of kubuntu 810

run udate + upgrade per the sites instructions 

downloaded the beta tar  ranthe commands per the site instruction.

The install took a awhile  but  i didnt notice any error.

I can run the system just fine  accually reallysmooth    but...

I have a 500gb  sata drive that has Linuxmce file structure + media on it
as well as a couple jump drives..

None of witch Linuxmce want to setup  ---but---  kubuntu sees them

I fear something went wrong during the install.    If I mount these threw Kunbunto
(Dolphin)  i can access files ect  but Linuxmce does not want to see or set them up

I have no unknown devices in Pluto admin...

This same this happens to me i see an error during install but everything works nice....  i actually discovery media... but as soon at i createTBZ for diskless creation ....  seems like the ability to discover is gone  as well as my ability to play media on MD directly... which i think are inter related... something in the mount.nfs  to automounter when screwy in install... still working on this...

started over...

Zotac 8100-ce matx mobo
2gb ram 1066
gf8600 pcie ( using hdtv componetn output )
160gb sata( os drive + some media )
Fugitu sata dvdrw 
hitachi 500gb sata

DVD install beta2
(after Kubuntu + Linuxmce install had to run nvidia-config + add in
BusID "PCI:3:0:0" ( for my gf8600 )
Mode "800x600" "1024x768"

Before reboot or Linuxmce would not lauch X for its config

Setup went good  ( Love the newer Icon sets for UI + UI2 aplha )

Linuxmce detects sad1 (160gb sata in witch my os is on )


sdc1 500gb hitachi is not add threw linuxmce ( ext3 format ) note also had a 320gb seagate i pluged in either sata port 3 or 4 no go either fat32 or ntfs format  -or-  ext2 " was testing id 500gb was bad ect...

the 500 and 320gb are seen in Kubuntu and can be mounted and used  as well as on my laptop via usb addapter...soo I know the physical drives are ok...

at the moment I am running apt-get update + upgrade   

i'll post if any fix cam about or more info
