I want to build a silent htpc with a AOpen XC Cube EZ18 (specs: http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=736&page=2) and a 1GB USB flash key. I don't have a capture card at the moment, so it will be mainly to listen to music and watch pictures on my network usb hard drive plugged into a NSLU2 (http://www.nslu2-linux.org/) which is plugged into the same Linksys router as the XC Cube. The htpc will be plugged into a standard TV via s-video and I have I iPAQ hx4700 I would like to use to control the htpc via a web interface that I think is included with MythTV.
I'm not very good in Linux, but here's what I did so far:
1. Downloaded and extracted ram-minimyth-0.21.0-42 on a notebook running Debian.
2. Plugged in the USB key
3. Erased what was on it
4. Went into the scripts folder and ran: ./mm_local_install /dev/sda and said Yes at the prompt
5. After a while, I get "MiniMyth install was successful"
6. I put the stick in the AOpen Cube and boot from it and get "Boot error" message.
Can someone help me troubleshoot this please?
One additional piece of info for my setup: for some reason my frontend BIOS is detecting the USB device as a "USBZIP" device and not a IDEHDD that I was expecting.
Any help is appreciated.
exactly same problem here
i have tested automatic and manual local install on usb stick to boot
all file on usb stck seems good
i have a /conf/default/minimyth.conf
version and md5 file
html and themes directory
in my syslinux i have same name for kernel and roots as name of file in usb stick
APPEND ro root=/dev/ram0 ramdisk_size=96000 initrd=rootfs
boot on usb stick is ok but syslinux can' find kernel , always default option , could not find kernel image linux (don't speak about name on syslinux.cfg so i think syslinux.cfg seems not used) .
i have tested to do a /boot directory with boot file , and /boot/syslinux directory with boot file inside ===> same problem
i have tested on more one pc ====> same problem
i have tested 2 versions of syslinux same problem
for sure i do something wrong and it's probably a stupid error from me .
thank's a lot for help
