About me

  • Born: 1989
  • From: Norway
  • Occupation: Factory worker.
  • Other info: Love technology, but still GNU/Linux-illiterate and don't know how to program, hoping to resolve that but my boring job takes up all my energy.

Since I can't code, the least I can do is test the code that the good folks working on this project provides. I'm currently L3mce's bitch.

  • Contact: Platypus or Platypus-Man on IRC, PlatypusPedersen on the forum.

LinuxMCE setup

I am testing snapshots, will get better hw for Core/Hybrid when I can afford it. For now, all the gear is in one room. so the Location info below will be location in that room.

Core / Hybrid - dcerouter

  • Location: Closet
  • System: ZOTAC ION ITX-G
    • GPU: On-board nVidia ION of some sorts
    • CPU: Intel Atom 330 @ 1.6 GHz, dual-core
    • RAM: 2 GB 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM, 240-pin (2x 1 GB)
    • Ports: The usual; HDMI, DVI-D, audio, USB2, gigabit network etc.
    • PXE: Works
    • Extra NIC: Don't remember the details, think it might be the one I got from [htttp://lmcecompatible.com], but I'll have to check.
    • Notes;
      • Audio through HDMI worked flawlessly when I tried to test a snapshow while using my TV instead of a old VGA-connected monitor.
      • Considering the age, small formfactor and low wattage, even re-generating orbiters ain't that bad if you remember rule #1 for LMCE, but I think I might change my mind when I get better hardware for the Core/Hybrid, and see the difference.

Desktop MD 1 - ZBOX ID41

  • Location: Test-bench
  • System: ZOTAC ZBOX ID41
    • GPU: On-board nVidia Next Generation ION, 512 MB DDR3 SDRAM
    • CPU: Intel Atom D525 @ 1.8 GHz, dual-core
    • RAM: 4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 SDRAM, 204-pin (2 x 2 GB)
    • Ports: The usual; HDMI, DVI-D, audio, USB2, gigabit network etc. Also has 2 USB3 ports.
    • PXE: Works
    • Notes:
      • On-board network was disabled in the BIOS by default for my device for some reason beyond my comprehension. After enabling it, reboot and go into the BIOS again to see it as an alternative for the boot priority.
      • The great and powerful L3mce is trying to work out the kinks with HDMI audio on it.

Desktop MD 2 - old ION

  • Location: Will re-purpose for LMCE (it's initial purpose when I bought it) soon.
  • System: ASUS AT3N7A-I
    • GPU: On-board nVidia ION, GeForce 9300
    • CPU: old Intel Atom
    • RAM: DDR2 SDRAM

Laptop MD 1 - Acer

  • Location: Test-bench
  • System: Acer Aspire 5741G
    • GPU: nVidia GeForce GT 320M
    • CPU: Intel Core i5 430M @ 2,26 GHz
    • RAM: 4 GB
    • Ports: USB2, HDMI, VGA, audio, gigabit network
    • PXE: Works

Laptop MD 2 - Asus

Location: Test-bench System: Asus A53S

    • GPU: 1 - on-board.
    • GPU: 2 - nVidia GeForce GT540M
    • CPU: Intel Core i7-2730QM @ 2 GHz
    • RAM: 8 GB (2x 4 GB)
    • Ports: USB2, DMI, VGA, audio, gigabit network
    • PXE: Works
    • Notes:
      • L3mce is doing some excellent work for dual-GPU handling.

Will write more later...
