Re: Binaries for XBMC and Quake 3 (with sound!)

Hello, thanks for the binaries! Unfortunatly, XBMC doesn't work for me... I've followed the installation steps, all worked great. The I launched XBMC and it appears that all my USB peripherals are not recognized anymore (keyboard, mouse, network, external HDD, ...). The only way to exit is to power...

Re: Binaries for XBMC and Quake 3 (with sound!)

When running XBMC your RPi is using more power than it ever has, XBMC uses quite a lot of CPU power just idling, as it has a loop which redraws the screen (apparently a hangover from the Xbox), it's also using the GPU 3d core, and whilst playing media it's also using the h.264 decoder. I find that m...

Re: Binaries for XBMC and Quake 3 (with sound!)

Far better to point the OS at the libraries properly, if they're present:

echo "/opt/vc/lib" > /etc/ld.so.conf.d/01_broadcom.conf
ldconfig

The Hexxeh image might need some other packages too. I've updated the post with all of the packages needed to run the XBMC binaries.

Binaries for XBMC and Quake 3 (with sound!)

Evening all, I've put together some tars of the XBMC and Quake 3 binaries for Raspbian/hardfp as they didn't seem to be readily available and compiling them can be pretty time consuming. http://www.memetic.org/quake-3-with-sound-for-the-raspberry-pi/ http://www.memetic.org/pre-compiled-xbmc-for-rasp...

Re: Bill Gates backs Raspberry Pi in all but name?

Bill Gates would back anything he thinks he can make money from but would make damn sure it didn't quite work first time, or second, or third, so you have to keep buying it over and over and over etc... Gates bashing is /so/ 1990s. You realise that Bill isn't in charge of Microsoft anymore, and tha...
