From the addresses you have on your XBMC Live installation it looks like you need to update your gateway to 192.168.2.5 and then configure the DNS servers to 213.184.200.1 and 213.184.200.2 in the file /etc/resolv.conf. If these DNS server addresses are not permanent then you could be asking for trouble down the line.

Alternatively, a lot of routers allow you to use those as the DNS server (they forward your data to whatever DNS servers are internally configured), in your case this could be 192.168.2.5 but I have no idea on your network setup ? It's also possible to use Google as a DNS server which are 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4.

First try with your own DNS servers and fix the gateway and see how it goes.

Now my /etc/network/interfaces looks like this

Quote:#The loopback networkinterface
auto lo eth0
iface lo inet loopback

#The Primary network interface
iface eth0 inet static
adress 192.168.2.102
netmask 255.255.0.0
gateway 192.168.2.5

And my /etc/resolv.conf

Quote:nameserver 213.184.200.1
nameserver 213.184.200.2
nameserver 192.168.2.1
domain tafjord-mimer.no
search tafjord-mimer.no

When I type sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart the following error appears
Reconfiguring network interfaces...
Don't seem to be have all the variables for eth0/inet
Failed to bring up eth0


What am I missing?
And what is the netmask supposed to be?

adress should be address

255.255.0.0 should also be 255.255.255.0 to match your network.

Thanks, now my system is setup with internet.
Now back to the thread topic -
I have decided to go for skin PM3.HD


I add smb sources (TV-Shows Videos Torrents and Music Videos) to the file manager, but when I go to main menu and try to access the video option, it just says ERROR 2: SHARE NOT AVAILABLE.

How do I add sources to the main menu so my setup would be like

TV-Shows
Videos
Music Videos
Torrents
Programs
Settings
