Issues encountered

It is pretty modern hardware in comparison with Kubuntu-Intrepid, so I suspect some mods and tweaks are nessecary to get things running.

IguanaIR

First add the IguanaIR repository to /etc/apt/sources.list:

 deb-src http://iguanaworks.net/downloads/debian source/
 deb http://iguanaworks.net/downloads/debian binary-i386/
 deb http://iguanaworks.net/downloads/debian binary-amd64/

(Since MCE is 32-bits only, the last line is actually not necessary) Then go to a clean directory

(for example: sudo mkdir /usr/local/src/Lirc;cd /usr/local/src/Lirc) And issue

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install iguanair
sudo apt-get build-dep lirc 
sudo apt-get -b source lirc

MoBo NIC

The on-board NIC (RTL 8111/8168B) is not supported by Intrepid's native desktop kernel. Considering to the age of Intrepid I decided to build a new 2.6.34.1 kernel according to http://www.howtoforge.com/kernel_compilation_ubuntu: How To Compile A Kernel - The Ubuntu Way.

installation MCE alpha-2

The installer started complaining it could not dld some packages which ik initially downloaded manually. At the third missing package I dived a bit deeper into it and added the line

  deb http://deb.linuxmce.org/ubuntu/ intrepid lmce-alpha2-updates

to /etc/apt/source.list which was enough.
