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.

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. Currently installed: LMCE-1004-20120524173925987

Core / Hybrid - dcerouter

  • Location: Closet
  • System: ZOTAC ION ITX-G
    • 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
    • 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 Zotac

  • Location: Will set up soon.

Laptop MD 1 - Acer

  • Location: Test-bench
  • System: Acer Aspire 5741G
    • CPU: Intel Core i5 430M @ 2,26 GHz
    • GPU: nVidia GeForce GT 320M
    • RAM: 4 GB

Laptop MD 2 - Asus

Will write more later...
