The installation of linuxMCE 0810 Release from DVD is rather straight forward.
- First grab the image from this link and burn the iso to a blank DVD.
- Boot the DVD in the target PC and select LinuxMCE (it is the top option) This will install a regular Kubuntu 810 system, with an additional button on the desktop to install LinuxMCE.
- Let Kubuntu's install run through, and after the system restarts, login with the user you created during installation.
- Double click the LinuxMCE icon on the desktop. This will run the fullinstall.sh in /root/new-installer and install LinuxMCE-0810 on top of you updated Kubuntu installation.
Note: If you receive the error “kdesudo command not found” ignore it completely, do not even click the OK button.
Note: Once the above process is complete - the AV Wizard should start (after rebooting). If you get a black or blank screen you probably need to change your video card outputs. Instructions on how to do this are availablehere.
The DVD installer per default does not create the initial MD image, as that creation takes a very long time, and most people probably prefer to give 810 a test, without the MDs. If you want to setup MDs, you have to manually run /usr/pluto/bin/Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh (You should only have to do this once)
If you have problems running Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh, check this article. If you then have problems netbooting your diskless media directors because you are receiving the error message “Diskless Setup Failed”, check this article.
