Re: Instructions for building XBMC for Raspbian

Many thanks for these build instructions. My build went very smoothly and I now have a working system. The one issue I have is that any video or mp3 I play causes a fluttering sound to come through the speakers. I canplay an mp3 via the command line with mpg123 without problem so it does seem to be...

Re: Instructions for building XBMC for Raspbian

Does omxplayer exhibit the asme effect? Is fluttering continuous or does it settle down. I don't have omxplayer installed, just the base build as detailed in the fits post of this thread. Like I said mpg123 plays it perfectly, it's only inside xbmc that the noise occurs. The noise is fairly consist...

Re: Wifi adapter

Cool. Glad to be of help. The same applies for the key_mgmt and pairwise fields too. Post your wpa-supplicant.conf file here (minus passkey of course) if you still can't connect.

Re: Wifi adapter

Basically you just need to add the following to the Makefile in the appropriate places: CONFIG_PLATFORM_RASPBIAN = y ifeq ($(CONFIG_PLATFORM_RASPBIAN), y) EXTRA_CFLAGS += -DCONFIG_LITTLE_ENDIAN ARCH := arm CROSS_COMPILE := arm-linux-gnueabihf- KVER := $(shell uname -r) KSRC ?= /lib/modules/$(KVER)/b...

Re: Wifi adapter

I had similar problems. In my case I had misconfigured my wpa_supplicant.conf file. I had AP scanning/selection set to 2 (ap_scan=2) but had more than one option listed in my proto and group fields (you're only allowed one option if ap_scan=2. Although it doesn't look like that's the case here. Have...

Re: Wifi adapter

Is the wifi dongle plugged straight into the Pi? If so it could be a power issue. Use a powered hub if you're not already. Are you able to ssh into the Pi? If you can take a look in /var/log/dmesg to see if there are any errors. It's possible that doing an update has caused an issue with your existi...

Re: Wifi adapter

Still doing it this way? I do, but it sounds like I may be rather out of date :? - what other ways are there? I meant as opposed to compiling the driver yourself. I was trying this at the time and then went back to running the install.sh when that proved to be too hard :) Thanks, changing the link ...

Re: Wifi adapter

Hi Jimmer, Well I don't know what's happening here but I can't get the driver to compile. I've had to make some alterations to the symlinks to even get the linux source compiled but still cannot get the driver compiled. mkdir /root/src cd /root/src git clone –depth 1 https://github.com/raspberrypi/...

Re: Wifi adapter

Thanks Jimmer. I am using Windows and have just worked out how to do it.

I used Win32 Disk Imager to write my original image to the SD. Backing up is as easy as entering a new file name e.g backup.img and then clicking the 'Read' button' rather than the 'Write' button :lol:

Re: Wifi adapter

Thanks for the tips - I'll read through and report what success I had.

I think you can compile from wherever you want. I copied the source tar.gz file into my home directory and unpacked it there. Then just navigated into the directory it created and ran make. Hope that helps.

Re: Building Quake 3 in Raspbian

Found this in my Xorg.0.log file

Code: Select all

[   187.936] (II) config/udev: Adding input device PIXART USB OPTICAL MOUSE (/dev/input/mouse0)
[   187.936] (II) No input driver specified, ignoring this device.
Does anyone know where would I specify this driver? Why would this have changed?

Re: ALSA on Raspbian

I had the same problem with vlc - not cracked the problem yet. I installed xine and that works, as does using aplay and mpg123 so I'm assuming at the moment it's a vlc specific problem. Shame because I do like vlc. Xine seems to do the same job though.
