Re: ArchlinuxARM on Raspberry Pi

The latest image is the 29th of april. Pepedog has posted it on the 1st of may (few posts back).

Not sure why it's not on the downloads page yet. Will get onto Liz and Eben.

May want to try that

Re: Bulding XBMC for Raspberry Pi

Probably easier to copy the xbmc binaries (in the /opt folder) over to your Debian image and install what it says in doms instructions (the on the Pi parts. You'll also need the newer stdlibc++ from my image)

This file comes from a CDN so your backend isn't really necessary. I also have access to a second CDN and about 80 mirrors . Thanks for the offer though.

Re: Bulding XBMC for Raspberry Pi

2GB will be the SD card size required but there will only be about 60MB space. You'll have to resize the partitions with gparted or similar if you want to take advantage of the capacity on a larger card.

Re: Bulding XBMC for Raspberry Pi

I think samba will need extra work but not too sure - it will play content from a flash drive but I think you may have to mount the flash drive yourself (it's dead easy though - takes 2 secs)

<t>Just letting you all know that I have a working image. You just have to log in with pi/raspberry and type xbmc. It's that easy.

Hi Kushan. I've not had time to look at OpenELEC's code and really the only reason I'm making an image is because it's easier to do than create a binary with instructions on how to get it going.

Re: Bulding XBMC for Raspberry Pi

Hi Dom,

Just to double check - the instruction "#sudo rm /usr/lib/libbz2.so" isn't needed because it's commented out right? I've done the "sudo ln -sf libbz2.so.1 libbz2.so" above instead.

Cheers,

Liam.

Re: Bulding XBMC for Raspberry Pi

It's okay guys - I administer the downloads server ! Plenty of capacity that I have access to. Will sort the image now. Sadly, when I copied it over from the SD card I forgot to preserve permissions so the build fs I used is a bit ruined. Not to worry - it won't take too long to sort out.

Re: Bulding XBMC for Raspberry Pi

I"m afraid I don"t really have time to make a binary and write up instructions so until something better comes along, who wants me to make a debian image that includes a working copy of xbmc?

Re: XBMC running on Raspberry Pi

XBMC has to be run from the console rather than X and it will require 128MB/256MB of the ram for the GPU. This is easy though, you just have to copy the appropriate firmware files in the /boot directory. Takes 2 secs, then you just have to restart for that to take effect.

Thanks Dom. I'll give those a try. I did demo a tiny bit of it lagging but will do more video at some point if those make a difference

<t>I agree with Dom - it's is and is going to be a quality piece of work <br/> <br/> The devs deserve thanks. I found that it works better on a monitor than a tv.

Re: External Hard Drive - Kernel Panic

I think its simply that the kernel isnt 100% stable yet. Especially when it comes down to the USB part of things. Not to worry though, it will get sorted by the wonderful kernel devs at some point

Re: Bulding XBMC for Raspberry Pi

For now, giving an interface a random address solves the issue.

sudo ifconfig up

sudo ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.234

It would be interesting to find out why this happens though. Will need to be fixed at some point
