For the users running on distros that are not debian wheezy, you likely need to provide a path to your linux CA files so that MC can talk SSL to the license server. For example:
http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=84427.msg615726#msg615726
and
http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=89638.msg615812#msg615812

This only applies when entering the registration code into the registration dialog in MC.

For the command line registration, all that's required is a recent .mjr file.

I thought I'd add a note for anyone wanting to use the command-line option mentioned in Bob's post. The correct command syntax is:

Code: [Select]
mediacenterXX /RestoreFromFile "Media Center20 Linux-YYYYYY.mjr"
(replacing the X's and Y's with the correct numbers from your specific .mjr file).

See: http://yabb.JRiver.com/interact/index.php?topic=89884.0

@Bob, let me know if this isn't a good place for this; I thought it might be nice to have it up top in the sticky because the relevant info is down in the build threads.

[Edited to reflect the default .mjr structure]

A bit of self help and detective work combined to solve a licence registration problem.

My licence file was sent with spaces in the filename, so I had to account for this by:
Quote
mediacenterXX /RestoreFromFile "Media CenterXX Linux-YYYYYY.mjr"
- where XX is the version number and all the Y's are as explained above.

Don't try and be cute (like I did) and manually close up the spaces by doing a file rename. Doesn't work. The .mjr file has to be quoted exactly.

Renaming the file using the "mv" function and restoring from the renamed file worked for me, FWIW.  That's why my command was slightly off.

You're right that for most folks quoting the original filename is probably the easiest way, I just have space removal automated for Linux filenames so it was just as easy for me to rename it as to quote it.

I'll fix my post to reflect the fact that the license typically has spaces in it.
