pure troll ... I've never judged it's performance - I said it's "development" is slower than openelec, and installer inferior to XBIAN ...
XBian does not have a dynamic installer -- that aside, this is simply not the case. You said:
GUI responsiveness will always be inferior on raspbmc
That sounds like an assessment of performance to me.
more troll - I said I do not have a television where I can get an ethernet cable (easily) ... I suggested I could use an HDMI-DVI cable to connect the pi to my computer monitor ... THIS suggestion by me was met with you thinking I don't have any VDU ... are you simple? stupid, or merely a troll?
Fair enough then, you have a VDU.
not angry, dissapointed
And yet multiple times you attempted to start arguments at the users forum, and, have come here to dissuade people from using the distro with no experience of it yourself.
FYI, 'development is glacial at best' is completely wrong. If you see our SVN repository you will see daily commits, 24 hour nightly builds.
[mod removed word], Sam ... you ignored the first time I posted my install issue, then you finally came in, and the sum total of your help for the first hour was to TWICE request the contents of the installer log ... which, if you'd bothered to read the symptoms of my install failure, you would realise, the file simply did not exist
stop trolling, and try to keep to something that resembles FACTS
I did not ignore it. I have a rule. Due to the sheer volume of posts, if it appears to be a problem that I believe may be user error, I leave it a day or so. Then, if the issue still persists, I look a little deeper. That is what I did with your problem.
The problem is that you are insistent on a headless install. If you have no log file, fair enough, but without any visual output, it's very difficult to diagnose the problem. We even suggested you try a pre-built image, which does not require a network connection, but you did not do that.
I am not trolling at all - I have tried to help and am still willing to.
sure, ban me from your forum because you don't like what I say, it's your forum, filled with your mutual [mod removed word]fanboi's
It's not that I didn't like what you were saying, it's that several people were becoming frustrated. Your posts were touching on other's nerves and you did not seem too bothered about actually getting your install to work, instead hailing XBian and OpenELEC.
I have suspended your posting rights, because, the way I see it, if you would really like some assistance in getting your install up, then I am more than happy to oblige. You can email for help and I will be more than to glad to assist. However, I personally feel that you have only used the forums to make a scene. I will close with this: if you genuinely need help, email me and you will get it. Otherwise, if you really feel Raspbmc development is glacial, inferior, etc, then, I can only advise you do the logical thing and use some other distro.
