From LinuxMCE
Jump to: navigation, search

My name is Ryan, my user name is Murdock on both the forum and on IRC. I am located in KC, Missouri. I have been interested in technology all of my life, though for the last year have been reading up on and studying/playing with linux. I watched the google video and made the purchasing decision with Fiire November of 2008 to 710. I have a dev SATA HD I boot up on for testing the newer releases. My setup at home is below.

1004 Current Issues

My MCE 1004 issues as of revision: 24454 - 8/24/2011

Initial testing performed in a VM environment:

1. Endless router reload requests, suspected due to the GYR3101US:

1004 Development Thoughts

Things to investigate:

KMS and the benefits to the boot process

Quicker MD startup (more for suspend/resume?)

DVD installer build process - snapshot - L3MCE is finalizing

Streamlining of installation process?

  • Review code, ensure everything is following the prescribed architeture and is installing in the manner we want it to
  • Take a look deeper at the package installation process, currently there are about 2 different scripts utilized, merge into one process

MCE update process that will chroot update all MD FS's, linked to the 'upgrade' button in the advanced dialog box on the OSD orbiter

1204 Development Thoughts

Clean up boot process, get rid of extraneous errors (most are thought to be inherent to the 1004 build of upstart, need to investigate with 1204)
