Either your SD card is too small, or you didn't resize the file system image after installing.

If you have Wheezy try: "sudo raspi-config" -> "expand_rootfs" if you have not done so earlier.

Can you try the following in Debian before starting OpenELEC?

Code: Select all

sudo modprobe lirc_dev
sudo modprobe rc-lirc
sudo modprobe ir-lirc-codec

I've tried this but after the sudo OpenELEC command the system begins to start OpenELEC, but then the screen goes black and nothing never appears again.

Also: i haven't a mouse connected at the time. It could influentiate?

Has someone else seen something like this?

See the first post on this page (raspi-config).

Hi,
Thanks for this package. It works like a charm excepting that I can't succeed to close/restart OpenELEC...
Any idea ?

Does the standalone version of OpenELEC or RaspBMC does work for any of you that have the black screen problem?

Yes, using OpenELEC standalone without any problems. Tried to use this 4 Debian because i had a problem with the standalone, but I ran into the black screen problem.

Now that i've solved the standalone problem, switched to that, works flawlessly.

yup, the first distro i installed was straight OpenELEC for RaspPi. I couldnt get my touchscreen drivers to work so I figured I'd try getting them installed on wheezy and then run Openelec from there. Neither has happened yet lol =]

Noticed that the wrong memory split can also result in a black screen on startup.

So make sure you did:

Code: Select all

sudo cp /boot/arm128_start.elf /boot/start.elf
sudo reboot

Great bit of software this package, worked effortlessly, however have one slight snag, The screen keeps overspilling, I reset it to it's correct settings, then when I reboot the pi the settings are off again, do I need to set these in the config file?

Try updating the firmware to the latest version.

Doesn't update the firmware (at least not to the latest version)
Either get the files from Raspberry git manually, or use Hexxeh's tool: https://github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-update

Thank you very much for this.
Installed this and worked straight away (on fairly standard wheezy).
Even the CEC worked!

Try "sudo apt-get update" first.
This updates the list of available software.

The version of git the system tried to download is probably replaced by a newer version, hence the 404.

Thanks for this!
for testing purposes really helpfull.

2 things dont work here:
Shutdown inside xbmc --> system freezes.
And not all commands with my remote of my samsung tv are working inside xbmc, but that it even works with arrows and ok keys is impressing

I have the same problem in standalone openelec so I dont think this is specific to OpenELEC 4 Debian.

Running on raspbian here.

Same freeze on shutdown here too.

Can this be updated to more recent openelecs? Any thoughts on how?
