== My 810 Install Instructions ==
+
 
+
The following are instructions for my hardware setup specifically, if you have hardware that deviates, some of the steps (ie sound card names, etc) may vary for you. (Upgrade process: 1 kernel 2 nvidia 3 alsa 4 v41)
+
 
+
1. Install Kubuntu Desktop 810
+
 
+
2. Upgrade Ubuntu to latest
+
sudo apt-get update
+
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
+
 
+
At this point I also associate the graphics adapter to the nvidia driver as well (Hardware Drivers program in KDE).
+
 
+
I prefer using htop to view system stats:
+
sudo apt-get install htop
+
 
+
After this I reboot.
+
 
+
3. Install OpenSSH for remote command line administration
+
sudo apt-get install openssh-server
+
 
+
4. Install FreeNX for secure remote GUI administration from ubuntu help site: help.ubuntu.com/community/FreeNX
+
 
+
5. Install MCE v810 (taken out from the lmce alpha2 wiki page **NOTE** Fiire chief does not yet function on 810, please reference forum post forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=8571.0 for latest details)
+
sudo su -
+
mkdir ~/downloads
+
cd ~/downloads
+
wget -c http:// deb.linuxmce.org/ubuntu/new-installer-alpha-latest.tar.gz
+
tar xvf new-installer-alpha-latest.tar.gz
+
cd new-installer
+
./pre-install-from-repo.sh
+
./mce-install.sh
+
./post-install.sh
+
sudo apt-get install w32codecs libdvdcss2 kubuntu-restricted-extras
+
reboot
+
 
+
''' Decided not to perform - The following Steps have caused me issues '''
+
 
+
1. Download and install latest nvidia drivers
+
cd ~/downloads
+
wget http:// us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/185.18.14/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.18.14-pkg1.run  #remove the space between http:// and us.download
+
sudo /etc/init.d/kdm stop
+
sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.18.14-pkg1.run
+
sudo /etc/init.d/kdm start
+
sudo reboot
+
 
+
2. Download and install latest V4L drivers for PCHDTV 5500 card
+
sudo apt-get install build-essential mercurial linux-headers-`uname -r`
+
cd /usr/src
+
sudo hg clone http:// linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb  #Due to wiki constraints I had to insert a space between http:// and linuxtv, close this space prior to running
+
cd v4l-dvb
+
sudo make
+
sudo make install
+
#Open permissions so myth can use the adapters
+
sudo chmod 775 /dev/video*
+
sudo chmod -R 775 /dev/dvb*
+
sudo chmod 775 /dev/vbi*
+
sudo chmod 775 /dev/dsp*
+
 
+
 
+
3. Update to the latest alsa driver (1.20 as of this writing)
+
 
+
'''Easy Way:'''
+
 
+
If you have a login to the ubuntu forums, download and install latest install script from ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=6589810#post6589810
+
 
+
Edit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base file to include the following at the end of the file:
+
options snd-hda-intel model=6stack-dig
+
 
+
 
+
'''Elongated method:'''
+
 
+
sudo aptitude install build-essential libncurses-dev gettext xmlto xmltoman linux-headers-`uname -r`
+
mkdir ~/downloads
+
cd ~/downloads
+
#The following assumes driver 1.20
