I’ve just had this when putting mythfrontend on a nice fujitsu box that obviously runs pretty snappy.
When the FE starts it takes you to the initial config screen I think because the eth0 if is not up in time.
There are various suggestions as to how to fix this but a simple one that worked for me was to:
- Uninstall the network manager in xmbc (not sure this is essential, but I don’t need it):
# apt-get remove network-manager
- Configure /etc/network/interfaces by adding:
iface eth0 inet dhcp
