Re: Periodic freezes, htop status D

Tried swapping out the power supply to another, but had the same results. I think the problem has to do with the SAMBA connection to the second machine. At least, my understanding of the D state is that it's usually waiting for disk access. Still looking for a process or log to watch to help trouble...

Re: Periodic freezes, htop status D

Not a bad idea, but I'm pretty sure the power supply is good, it's from an Apple iPad. A bad power supply might explain intermittent glitches, but probably not an irregular disk sleep process. Also, the same power supply has worked extremely well since I bought the Pi a few years ago (one of the fir...

Periodic freezes, htop status D

Running Raspbian GNU/Linux 7 I am getting periodic (irregular but consistent) freezes of my Pi. I boot Raspbian, use Samba to connect to my Ubuntu box and run feh to display digital photos. Randomly the machine will freeze up necessitating a pull-the-plug reboot. Before the freeze feh enters a D sta...

Re: OpenELEC 4 Debian

Thanks for the file, I was to install it with no problems. However, I'm getting random hangs when navigating the menus with an attached USB mouse (which works just fine in Wheezy.) Also, is there any way to enable ssh into openELEC? I tried adding the ssh_enable file in config, but no luck. Perhaps ...

Re: Can't play videos

To answer my own question - I can now play videos with omxplayer. Not sure exactly what fixed it, I've changed the memory split to favor the gpu, overclocked the Pi to 900, and installed a mess of xmms plugins (which, incidentally, enabled LxPlayer to play mp3 files.) Success!

Re: Can't play videos

I tried two different memory splits, 32M for the GPU and 128M for the GPU, changed via raspi-config with no luck. How do I verify that raspi-config actually changed the memory splits correctly?

Re: Can't play videos

So either I'm confused or my question stands - I tried using omxplayer on my own files and on the test file, as well as on a copy of Big Buck Bunny and gotten audio but no video. I've read about other people playing videos with omxplayer, I just can't figure out what's going on. Thanks.

Re: Can't play videos

I was under the impression that omxplayer did use the GPU, is that wrong?

Can't play videos

Just got the RasPi last night, I've managed to get most things working well, but I'm completely unable to play any videos. I compiled and ran the hello_video code against the test.h264 file with no output. I've tested against sample Apple videos and gotten audio but no video. I've tested omxplayer a...
