Took the plunge with the new Lucid version. So far only problems are no menu sounds in XBMC (not a big deal) and no CPU or GPU temps under system info. Installing latest NVIDIA drivers now (256.35), so we'll see what happens. Still have to configure sabnzbd+ and transmission, which I've never done from scratch on an ubuntu system, so this could get interesting.

Got the July 1st release, and installed to usb with unetbootin-windows-471.exe
Removed nodiskmount anywhere it appeared in \boot\grub\grub.cfg and \syslinux.cfg
Mounts my IDE drive fine, but my 2 SATA drives aren't being mounted. Am I missing something?
Thanks for any and all help. Really excited about the new release!
Actually, if I go to "System info - Storage information" I can see
/media 931.5 GiB (1TB SATA)
/media 0.1 GiB (system reserved space?)
/media 298.0 GiB (320GB SATA)
/media 232.9 GiB (250GB IDE)
/live/image 3.5 GiB (4GB USB, used for XBMCFreak boot disk)
But as you can see, all the HDDs appear to be mapped to the /media directory, and if I navigate to that directory from the file browser, I can only view the contents of the IDE drive...
Again, thank you for any and all help!

i have test this release to.
I have 1 SATA Drive and 2 USB Disk.
I just see the content on the first usb disk into media.
If i unplugged the usb disks, start the pc, i see my sata drive into media, then i plugged the usb disk and they appear into media as folder into the sata drive.
i have test to create folders into media and mount manualy my sata drive and the second usb, it workd too.
but i don't find a solution to have my disk auto mount.

Watched a few things last night on it after upgrading to the new NVIDIA drivers. All seems good. Still no menu sounds, and still no CPU/GPU temps for my Zotac IONITX-G-E. I think I'll have to dig around on the old V14 disc to find what the settings were in advancedsettings.xml to get temps working. Everything seems smoother, and there isn't the little lag I used to get when the system had been running for a while.

I've installed this on two machines so far. Both are Acer Revo's R3610, plugged into a receiver via HDMI doing digital audio with passthrough.
To get audio working, all I did after the install was run the following instructions (copied from someone else's thread)
sudo wget http://pastebin.com/download.php?i=f5f9654bb -O /etc/asound.conf
sudo wget http://pastebin.com/download.php?i=f2e38265 -O /usr/share/alsa/cards/HDA-Intel.conf
Set audio configuration under System > Audio to HDMI, with HDMI for passthrough and audio - ie I didn't have to change anything or type any special PLUGHW:0,3 settings. It just worked, both menu sounds and video playing sounds with DTS and stereo.
I hope this helps someone.

@AaronD thanks! I am about to do this install later on a Revo 3610 and I am pretty sure I'll need these instructions. One thing though, I have heard that you can't get a terminal by pressing Ctrl-Alt-F1 because the screen is blank. How did you execute the commands?
@cowfodder How did you install the new drivers? Do you have the step by step instructions? I have the same exact problem with the automounting of the drives.
Have anyone tried running Aeon/Aeon65 or variants with his install? I have heard that it lags consideribly. Maybe due to it not being optimized for 10.0X ?
- AaronD - 2010-07-03 15:53
I used Putty from a Windows box and SSH'ed into the Revo. But then again, I never tried Ctrl+Alt+anything, I always used Putty for configuring.

Thanks for these settings! I have few .m2ts files whose audio track doesn't work. I can only hear noise from my speakers. Any ideas how to fix it?

Install wget if you don't have it already
Then download the driver installer package
As for automount issues, I've never run into them, but I only have one internal HD, and I set that to /media/media in fstab at install. I'm not sure if the system reads them as multiple HDs when you're installing, but if it does you can use the custom partition option to set mount points for connected drives at install.

What do the latest drivers give you?

NVIDIA Release Notes Wrote:* Fixed a regression in 256.29 where Performance Level clock frequencies were reported incorrectly in nvidia-settings.
Also seem to give better support for certain audio files. I just prefer to keep things up to date personally, as it's easy to downgrade if new ones screw something up.

What's the process for downgrading?
- ClayM - 2010-07-03 21:18
Installing the nvidia drivers seems to have broken my install; xbmc no longer starts up on bootup.
- cowfodder - 2010-07-03 23:44
Because you let it overwrite your xorg.conf.
- cowfodder - 2010-07-03 23:58
Ok, posting from my iPhone cuts off the second half of that post.
When you ran the installer it should have backed up your old xorg file as something like xorg.conf.old. Check in your /etc/X11 folder and replace the new xorg with the old one, then reboot.
