Re: Instructions for building XBMC for Raspbian

Fri Jul 27, 2012 12:21 pm

mm, managed to get XBMC compiled and installed, but I'm still getting the same problem, video thumbnails look fine but when I play them I get black & white static (all vids are fine in OMXPlayer).

xbmc.log has the following errors

ERROR: COMXCoreComponent::SetConfig - OMX.broadcom.clock failed with omx_err(0x80001005)
ERROR: OMXClock::OMXReset error setting OMX_IndexConfigTimeClockState

Re: Instructions for building XBMC for Raspbian

Fri Jul 27, 2012 4:01 pm

Hi,
I've downloaded the image (the standard one) from the first post on page 8 of this thread and everything works as expected. I then tried to setup to use my wifi dongle using the command 'sudo install-rtl8188cus'. Again this starts, runs through a number of processes including firmware updates and then reboots. At this point I have functioning wifi but XBMC will not load with an error messade 'unable to add service'.

Any thoughts?

Best regards,
Jon.

Hey Jon

I'm trying to install tomaz' .deb. I'm getting the same error:

I guess so, when using the script to install the wifi it automatically updated other things as well. New to Linux so not exactly sure what it has done.

Cheers,

For those of you who've got a working version of Raspbian XBMC, are you doing any overclocking to achieve a smoother performance?

I just got my PI last night and loaded Raspian (no XBMC) then Elec XBMC onto it with no problems, seems to work fine, but is a little slow. I'm going to switch over to RaspbianXBMC after reading the positive feedback about it here, but I think a little bit of overclocking is in order.

Are there any issues with GPU overclocking, anyone got any recommendations of a basic overclock just to speed up performance, nothing extreme resulting in crashing?

Hey,

I think its because the toolchain used to compile the firmware changed and so maybe the old binary doesn't work anymore (calling symbols that does not exists or have changed using the new toolchain).

So I don't know if a new compile must be done.

I see right now on the commit log of the rpi-firmware that Dom Cobley is trying to fix the issue, will try it later on and let you know if it works out.

For me, I played on the safe side, just boosting the CPU to 850Mhz and the RAM to 500Mhz.
I think that overclocking the GPU would require at least a passive heatsink but maybe it's possible without it :)

Hi
I'll keep it short
I will be spending the next 26 days in a hotel in Senegal (Africa)
And I have my new rasp pi with me
And I'm trying to downloads the 4gb image but the internet here sucks I'm getting 60 kbps with lan and 30 with wifi and the downloads stops after it downloads 10mb
Can someone please post a torrent?
Thank you all

Hi fordexplorer,

I have tried (just now) installing fresh copy, to test procedure and it still works.

It is true, when I wrote:

Code: Select all

 sudo apt-get upgrade
I received:
Configuration file `/etc/skel/.bashrc'
==> Modified (by you or by a script) since installation.
==> Package distributor has shipped an updated version.
What would you like to do about it ? Your options are:
Y or I : install the package maintainer's version
N or O : keep your currently-installed version
D : show the differences between the versions
Z : start a shell to examine the situation
The default action is to keep your current version.
*** .bashrc (Y/I/N/O/D/Z) [default=N] ? Y

This probably means they changed stuff in .bashrc file. You can see changes, if you press D instead Y.
But other than that everything seems OK, upgrading from original "2012-07-15-wheezy-raspbian"
image before installing .deb file.

Are you using raspbian distribution (2012-07-15-wheezy-raspbian)?

P.S. .deb file doesn't use /etc/skel/.bashrc directly so no problem, if you upgrade later (after installing XBMC .deb file) :)

Hi all:

I've followed your instructions and the compiling goes OK. Anyway, I had some problems when executing XBMC. There's some problem with dynamic libraries.

First, libEGL.so couldn't be found... I fixed it creating some ln's and now ldd returns that's OK:

Code: Select all

[email protected] /lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf $ sudo ldd /usr/lib/xbmc/xbmc.bin | grep EGL
	libEGL.so => /lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libEGL.so (0x40d80000)
Now the problem appears with libGLESv2.so. I've tried the same, creating links everywhere but there must be something that ldconfig doesn't like because I always get:

Code: Select all

[email protected] /lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf $ sudo ldd /usr/lib/xbmc/xbmc.bin | grep GLE
	libGLESv2.so => not found

[email protected] /lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf $ ls -ltr | grep libGLE

-rw-r--r-- 2 root root  105491 jul 29 11:09 libGLESv2.so.1
-rw-r--r-- 3 root root  102640 jul 29 11:09 libGLESv2_static.a
The libraries thar dl can't fine are:

Code: Select all

libGLESv2.so => not found
	libbcm_host.so => not found
	libvcos.so => not found
	libvchiq_arm.so => not found
At this time, XBMC crashes trying to load libGLESv2.so (maybe later i'll find problems with all the rest :P ).

There are several symbolic links pointing OK under /lib/arm-linux-gbueabihf /usr/lib/ and other paths but I can't get it... Any help would be really appreciated.

Thanks a lot and best regards,

Please, forget my last post.

I was trying too much to install xbmc and my /opt/vc folder weren't as it should be. Now there are no more libraries problems but I have a nice black screen :D

Let's check what we can do with that.

Thank you all!

Hi,

I've just created a repository for XBMC debian packaging here : https://github.com/Diaoul/xbmc-rbp-packaging
The goal is to use automatic tools to create the debian package (pbuilder here) on both an emulated Raspberry Pi or a true one.
This is still a work in progress so feel free to submit pull requests / issues.

Currently building on a VM, I'll see if there are any stuff to change, I'm guessing some tests maybe.

Read the README for more information.

OK.... Linux N00B here be nice I am quick at learning. So I have follow the above readme and last command read was sudo ./pbuilder build *.dsc My guess is this is building another distro to install ?
I am lost for the next steps.... I am running the raspiban from the downloads section. I do want to Learn , And have learned alot already. My background is windows so just a n00blet at *Nix

I just try to compile xbmc from jmg123 solution but I got an Error when I launch xbmc.
I have "xbmc needs hardware accelerated opengl rendering" and then in the console :

Code: Select all

ERROR: Unable to create GUI. EXiting.
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
Any idea? :(

Or do you know where can I find a built with Airplay already enabled online?

To disable the check for hardware acceleration run:

head -n 171 "/usr/share/xbmc/FEH.py" > "/usr/share/xbmc/FEH.py.new

I have a new image ready, with airplay support

By using the instructions from jmg123, I built an image with airplay. As i don't have any apple devices, I couldn't test it, but it should work, the settings are there at least
Changelog:
Airplay
NFS

This one should fit on all SD-cards, so just one image this time.
Download here:
http://wordpress.silenz.se/?page_id=31&did=7
Or if you would experience problems, a backup link:
http://wordpress.silenz.se/downloads/ra ... -31.img.7z


And a little bonus for all statistic lowers, 487.5GB downloaded in the last two weeks, should equal to about the same amount of downloaded images.

Code: Select all

git clone https://github.com/olajep/rpi-cecd.git

The input from the remote control is recognized by rpi-cecd and also by XBMC. My init-script (based on the XMBC init-script) can be found here: http://pastebin.com/U6bRbFLE (you may need to change the path to rpi-cecd based on were you built it)
Cheers MKV21 for the init script and how to get the script working that is spot on :)

For those who are still learning linux (like me) here is How I got it working from start up. I am using windows 7 and winscp and extra putty (and plink) to connect to my pi and I use a program called textpad for my text files.

Using the init code produced by MKV21 copy and paste into a text file and save to a file called runcec (that is the file name for this example but you can call it what you want :) ) Make sure it has no extension set (i.e. save using the " " marks so it doesn't put the .txt at the end)

I have already set a root password so I can connect by root

(to do this connect to your pi via putty, login using the pi username and type sudo passwd root; It should then prompt you to set the password)

Connect to your pi via winscp using the root username and password and copy the runcec file you have created to the folder /etc/init.d/

Log on via putty and then type the following commands (again thanks to MKV21) :)

This creates the code from the repository
cd /home/pi
git clone https://github.com/olajep/rpi-cecd.git
cd rpi-cecd/
make
./rpi-cecd

To make the file you created previously an executable you then type
chmod 755 /etc/init.d/runcec

and to make it code run on start up type
sudo update-rc.d runcec defaults

Then to reboot type

sudo shutdown -r now

Also got a shortcut on my desktop with a batch file to reboot my pi if needed the batch file is as follows

cd "c:\program files\extraputty\bin"
plink [email protected] IP address -pw rootpassword reboot

Hope this helps and again if somebody with more knowledge sees a mistake or a short cut let us know but mine is working using this method :)
When I run git clone https://github.com/olajep/rpi-cecd.git I have a git command not found error message any suggestions?

Hi Silas,

I have been running one of your older images (July 17th). I'm really happy with it (the XBMC UI is very responsive!). Sometimes the screen goes blank however, and I need to SSH to it and telinit 6.

Would it be possible to mount the July 31st image, and copy XBMC (executables/libraries/resource) files from it to the July 17th image? I have done some customisations (fstab, /boot/config.txt, XBMC themes and directories, etc.) and it would be a little painful to do it all again.

Is it possible to copy XBMC from July 31st over the July 17th image? If so, is there a few directories where it is installed that I should do this? Specifically which ones?

Many thanks for making this image available. :-)

-Mike-

I've just created a repository for XBMC debian packaging here : https://github.com/Diaoul/xbmc-rbp-packaging
The goal is to use automatic tools to create the debian package (pbuilder here) on both an emulated Raspberry Pi or a true one.
This is still a work in progress so feel free to submit pull requests / issues.

Currently building on a VM, I'll see if there are any stuff to change, I'm guessing some tests maybe.

Read the README for more information.
Nice, I've been doing it similarly ( http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 66#p134466 ). Any spefic reason for disabling pretty much everything? :) I tried to leave most of it like it was in the official sources.

Hi silas

Sorry not been online recently but last night noticed your compiled image of XBMC with AirPlay

I have just downloaded it and tested it with no joy

I turn on the airplay in XBMC and open YouTube but the airplay button doe not display tried rebooting both devices and also tested other Idevices aswell as checking that the Idevices was still working on a apple tv which they was

So is there something I'm missing or are others having this same issue

I'll try to post my xbmc log later today, maybe that will give some insight. As it is not even showing up on iOS devices, I would hazard a guess that zeroconf/bonjour would be a good first place to look.
