MM-X-DRIVER="is not valid

Post by Tha Ra » Tue Apr 06, 2010 7:22 pm

Hello,
I'm trying to run MiniMyth 0.22.0-72 a VIA Epia-V board with an Ubuntu backend.
When I try to boot, I get the following error:

Code: Select all

MM-X-DRIVER="is not valid
MM-X-DRIVER="is not valid

init failed. check '/var/log/messages' for further details.
The messages file containt the following:

Code: Select all

Hi,

How are you editting your config? In Linux or Windows? I had similar issues and the problem was simply using windows to edit the config. There is a dos2unix tool that you can install on your ubuntu box and pass the config file through it. Then all the carriage returns etc will be sorted.

I assume you mean MM_X_DRIVER not MM-X-DRIVER. If you are using MM-X-DRIVER, then that would be a problem.

My understanding is that the VIA EPIA-V boards use the CLE133 for graphics, which does not have MPEG2 hardware acceleration and has a relatively underpowered processor. As a result, MiniMyth does not support it.
