leave a comment »

As you may know to have possibility to use the modern LinuxMCE user interface with transparency and 3D effects the right video card should be chosen. As variant I can recommend nVidia 6XXX which works excellent from the box. However, there is a way to use some more modern models such nVidia 7600. Just follow by recommendations from that post on the LinuxMCE forum.

Hack #5: Howto Modify network configuration

with 2 comments

LinuxMCE Core (hybrid or dedicated) needs two network interfaces – one for external connection and another one – for internal. If by some reason you have only one during installation the system creates a virtual internal interface – eth0:0. To modify the network configuration when you decided to add a second Ethernet card you have to make simple changes in the pluto_main database. To see a current network configuration run following select command in the mysql shell:

SELECT IK_DeviceData FROM Device_DeviceData WHERE FK_DeviceData=32;

The result should be similar to this:


Just replace eth0:0 to eth1

UPDATE Device_DeviceData SET IK_DeviceData="eth0,dhcp|eth1,," WHERE FK_DeviceData=32;

and reboot your core. After that will should see two interfaces.
