Yesterday I upgraded my LinuxMCE 0710 Beta 2 installation (32bit) up to the latest Beta 3 (AMD64) successfully. I was ready to lose all media content and my customizations because the developers were not sure about correct working of upgrade procedure (it’s a beta anyway). So, I made a full backup of databases, DVB card firmware etc. But everything passed without any problems. All my preferences were transferred to the new version, media files were also saved. So, I just need to recompile the module for iMON VFD display for the new kernel because the original Kubuntu package doesn’t include possibility to manage “Good Bye” message displayed after box is shutdown.
I’m gonna play with the new version during weekend. So, I expect some feedback on Monday. Also, I have to finalize the way to install the Orbiter on Nokia770/N800/N810 to make it more convenient for the consumers.
