I has the same issue with Linuxice. Egalax had some issues. I kept running the application (3-4) times until the window appeared where you can run the calibration software.
You are lucky. I am running LinuxIce with BlackSea skin. everything works great but nghost don't see the media files, no matter what i do.
So i tried to install Meego. It goes as far as "select drive to boot from", but there are no drives listed. linuxice had no issues finding it.
Scratching my head.
