You could try editing .xbmc/userdata/guisettings.xml

Find this line and edit it to WINDOW
<screenmode>WINDOW</screenmode>

and a little lower try changing the resolution until it fits

<window>
<height>480</height>
<width>720</width>
</window>

This worked when I played with it over HDMI.

If you don't want to reboot every time just kill the xbmc process over ssh and will automatically restart it with the new settings.

Hi,
I have a problem with compiling OpenELEC.

First of, I'm compiling it in windows via a virtual machine (oracle) using ubuntu.
The process of compiling stops and wants me to provide something I don't know, what should I do?

Code: Select all

Physical address of main memory (PHYS_OFFSET) [] (NEW)
I typed "?"

Code: Select all

CONFIG_PHYS_OFFSET:

Please provide the physical address corresponding to the location of main memory in your sistem.

Symbol: PHYS_OFFSET []
Type: hex
Prompt: Physical addres of main memory
Defined at arch/arm/Kconfig:222
Depends on: !ARM_PATCH_PHYS_VIRT [=n] && !NEED_MACH_MEMORY_H [=n] && MMU [=y]
Help would be appreciated, thanks.

I have the same problem and used to have it too when i tried building with 3.2.17 kernel previously. It seems the default kernel it uses now is 3.2.18

The fix might be the configuration file.

The question previous to it.

Code: Select all

Patch physical to virtual translations at runtime (ARM_PATCH_PHYS_VIRT) [N/y/?] n
is answered a no, but i think if it is set to yes

Code: Select all

Physical address of main memory (PHYS_OFFSET) [] (NEW) 
is not asked.

Thanks very much.

Sadly this doesn't fit onto the 4GB cards I have to hand (Kingston Class 4). I've also had trouble in the past getting 2GB images onto 2GB cards (PNY).

I guess this is a roundabout plea to those making images available to shorten the /storage partition so that the image will fit onto a variety of SD cards that are ostensibly the same size.

I took my own advice and made a smaller image that fits onto a 2GB card.

yeah, there appears to be a big difference between what Sandisk and PNY along with a few other card makers call a 4GB card....

unfortunately I don't have any 2 GB or even 1GB cards to hand to build an image to a smaller card.

Using dd to copy the card, it makes no difference if I make the partition smaller, its making a copy of the card..... including unused space..

I have a stack of 4GB class 4 sandisk cards I got from Tesco/Asda. They come in a twin pack for between £11 and £13 depending what day you go on.... they really are a good buy, not the fastest of cards but works perfectly fine for OpenELEC.....

I'll see if i can find some sort of "virtual SD card" app for linux then I can make 512MB images....

To make my smaller image I first made a smaller ext4 partition for storage. I then used count= option on dd to limit the number of 1M blocks. In my case I limited it to 1650M to fit on any 2GB SD, but there's clearly scope to go smaller than that.

If you're using PAL you'll probably want to change this to:

<window>
<height>576</height>
<width>720</width>
</window>

Otherwise you'll end up with a blank band at the bottom of the screen.

that's an idea.... My linux skillz are still very noobish,(but getting there) so will be doing some goggling on that one...

my plan will be to add a script that can be executed that will expand the ext4 partition to fill the rest of space on the target card....

Hi All,

I've just installed the R11170 image (from someones dropbox from an earlier post). All looks good except that I can't see my external hard drive plugged into the USB port. I've tried a memory stick and I've tried swapping over usb ports but still can't see them.

Earlier today I tried Rasbmc and that could see the drive ok. I'm completely new to Linux and wasn't sure where I should have been looking anyway, but with Raspbmc when I went to "Add Source" I found my drive under Root filesystem/media/usb. (Under media there was a list of USB, USB0, USB1 etc) Is this where it's supposed to be located? With OpenElec though there are no USB entries listed under Root filesystem/media/ and I couldn't see the drive anywhere else. So is it me, or has something gone wrong somewhere?

Thanks,
John

can you paste (on pastebin.com, fpaste.org or somewhere) a log with much more output? which package fails with this error?

just fixed, checkout the latest sources with

Code: Select all

git pull origin master
from OpenELEC.tv dir, then remove the buildfolder with

Code: Select all

rm -rf build*
and rerun the make command.

you also can save the whole and long compile and try one of our latest development builds:
http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 167#p89186

there is a script "create_sdcard" to create a sd-card

Thanks for the build, installed it within minutes and fired up my RPi for the first time. Unfortunately, I get locked in a boot-cycle, I can see the OpenELEC-logo, some kind of color calibration and every now and then a glimpse of xbmc - before it reboots again. Any ideas on that?

Reference my promise a few pages back

I now have the ITV Player addon working using the latest version of OpenElec (11198). In this version RTMPDump has been updated.

4OD I also have working with a new version of the plugin at https://github.com/MossyTC/xbmc-4od/zipball/master

this is an image for a 4gb sd from someone on the previous page.

Also a guy has a blog up with a pretty good image for 1gb+ sd (but you have to remap the remaining space yourself if you want to use extra SD card space) that im currently using which works flawless for a beta/testbuild! He has a 1gb image on his site: http://www.root9.net/
