About Me

I'm vuko2918 (@Forum: vuko) and live in Graz (Austria, Europe not Australia). I'm student of Software-Engineering & Economy @ Technical University Graz and work at a local Warehouse Automation System Company in the 2nd Level software support. I started using Debian about two years ago. At work we are using AIX as well SuSe Linux.

I started engaging myself with home multimedia when i was about 8 years and got my first own HiFi-system. Since then i tried to build cheap Multiroom systems through with Speaker Switches and lot of Speaker-Cables. When I ot my first PC i started to build a homenetwork and so the two interest mixed.

LinuxMCE and me

I've seen the Video LinuxMCE vs winMCE some time ago but never really made any steps into LinuxMCE. When i saw the new video i decided to try to setup a VirtualBox with LinuxMCE. I Could get through the setup and get the basic UI working, but without any devices i hadn't any fun on using it. So i decided to get myself a core to make my real first steps in LinuxMCE.

After a Kernel update to version 2.6.26 i got the onboard LAN (Realtek 8111B) running.

Next Steps

  • configure Core
  • setup a MD in VirtualBox



Until now I'm not really sure whether I use it as Core or as Hybrid.
