  • Linux ICE

    Ok, so I decided to go with Linux ICE. I downloaded the live CD for the Alpha 4 version. Put it on my PC and I guess it was OK, but there's no option to put a web browser on? And NGhost doesn't view in full screen? I tried downloading firefox and burning it to a disk. Well that didn't work too well considering there's no option in ICE to open a disk unless it's a DVD. Should I go with something like Ubuntu? I'm just not digging this Linux ICE, seems to be lacking a lot???

    to install firefox type the following in Accessories->terminal:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install firefox
    I would install thunar so that you'll be able to transfer files around while nghost is awaiting that ability:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install thunar
    We wanted to keep the CarPC essentials in and nothing more. A browser may be included in future versions if more people think it is essential.

    Thanks for the feedback. We'll use it to improve our direction.

      Err http:// blah blah blah. x5
      E: Unable to fetch some archives.

      I assume it's because the drivers for my wireless card aren't installed? They automatically got installed with Ubuntu? How do I get them for ICE?

        the drivers probably did load, it just hasn't connected to anything automatically.

        Code:
        sudo iwconfig [wlan0] essid "myessid"
        or iwconfig wlan0 essid any
        and iwlist scan to list the available APs
        should connect you to your AP.

        The next version of nGhost will have a simple wifi manager but for now, I recommend wifi-radar.

        Hope that helps

            oh, replace "wlan0" with your wireless device (usually eth1, wifi0, wlan0 or something of the like). You can discover this with the "iwlist scan" command.

              Thanks for the help as I'm new to the whole Linux scene. When I do the "iwlist scan" here's what comes up:

              "lo Interface doesn't support scanning.
              etho Interface doesn't support scanning.
              ra0 No scan results"

              I get the same error as before trying the ones you listed plus the lo, eth0, and ra0.

                sounds like your drivers aren't being loaded for your device. Let us know what wifi device you have and the model number.

                the outputs from:
                Code:
                lspci
                and
                Code:
                lsmod
                I wonder if your device has a driver that is considered "restrictive" and LinuxICE isn't loading it. If you feel brave you can download restricted-manager and its dependencies (not sure if there are deps needed for LinuxICE but probably there are).

                Alternatively drop into the #linuxice irc channel irc.freenode.com (there are tons of irc clients/apps out there, a quick google will help you find one) and we can walk you through the process of installing what you need to.

                Its pretty obvious that we need to hit wifi management hard for beta1. This should never be difficult.

                  Yeah IDK everything loaded fine in Ubuntu.

                  00:0b.0 RaLink RT2561/RT61 802.11g PCI

                  Is the wireless card that showed up. What part of the "lsmod" did you need? The list is pretty long, lol. Thanks again for the help.

                    Well I just went back to Ubuntu due to the lack of support and information available for my current setup. Thanks anyways.

                      Just a suggestion, you would recieve much better support in the LinuxICE forums (http://www.nextabyte.com/nanonymous/...wforum.php?f=6) or in the #linuxice chatroom on the FreeNode IRC network. The dev's are at those two locations alot more than they are here.
