Adding the Device

In the LinuxMCE web admin goto Advanced > Network > DHCP leases. Find the new entry (probably showing as Openframe, Openpeak, or joggler or so) and copy it's IP Address.

Goto Advanced > Configuration > Devices and press 'Add a top level device' paste the IP address and press 'Pick Device Template' to select the device template you created.

This should start the installation. Currently there is a bug so the installation script does not get started ticket 2131 so you have to run it manually like (pass the device instance ID of the device you just created and the IP address:

/usr/pluto/bin/ -d deviceID -i IPAddress
