    Bij installeren naar hd 120dpi of niet of starten live hangt de boel in een zwart scherm vlak na of tijdens het xbmcbuntu logo.

    Dit op een zotac 9300 itx.

    AFP was broken in the last RC (Tried it last night) – was it fixed in this one?

    I can help if you want. I’ve worked with Memphiz a bit on this.

    It would really be sad if xbmcbuntu wouldn’t work out of the box for those using AFP servers. It seems to mostly be problems with setups where the crypto libs for the needed UAMs weren’t present at build time.

    Afp has been fixed a few hours ago. I’ll create another cd later this week!

    Hi,

    I’ve got a problem using the Install menu (or install 120) : it keeps booting on live system.
    I’m using Unetbootin with USB key and then trying to install on a Zotac.

    Installtion process works with v34 ! But I can’t get it installed with v35 or v36 ?

    Any suggestions ?

    Thanks for the good work ;)

    SystemLord:

    Ok, voor zover ik zelf kan zien zijn de nvidia drivers op deze livecd versie 280.13
    Eigenlijk alles tot 290.xx (vanaf 270.xx) werkt niet op de zotac 9300 itx bordjes.

    zie: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=162538

    Dus aub het verzoek versie 290 mee te nemen op de live cd.

  9. SystemLord says:

    Ok zover ik kan zien nu staat nvidia v280.13 op de livecd

    vanaf 270.xx zit er een bug in de linux drivers waardoor eea niet goed werkt bij een zotac 9300 itx moederboard. Vanaf 290.xx is dit verholpen, zie: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=162538

    Graag aub op een volgende live cd nvidia 290.xx meenemen, zo hebben alle zotac 9300 itx gebruikers met xbmc geen problemen meer met het starten van X (zwarte hangende schermen ed)

    Here’s a new livecd with AFP: http://xbmcfreak.binkey.nl/XBMCbuntu-v37.zip

    Sound is broken in the current XBMCbuntu setup and has been for some versions. Thought it was a temporary problem, but since it was still here when I finally upgraded again I dived into it.

    The source of the problem is the .asoundrc-file created by the system (probably installer).

    My plea is simple: Do NOT override the default device. I cannot access it from the XBMC settings directly, and it is setup nicely as it is.

    Although I can override it with “hw:0,0″ I will have another bug causing 22050 Hz audio to play twice as fast.

    If a custom alsa device is really necessary, then please give it another name and add an option in XMBC, but again, do not override the default device. It can (and probably will be) a pain to some users. And they might not know how to And it’s way easier to have a Custom device set to some name as “customhdmi” rather than having to know how to access the Linux-filesystem and remove/rename a file, or reconfigure it.

    What kind of hardware do you have? Could you please post the output of aplay -l

    I partially agree. Since we don’t have any good tools to configure the sound it’s a bit of a compromise. If we do nothing or don’t set any default most of the users will have problems. Hopefully the new Audio Engine will fix this.

    I too have the problem that when booting from the USB stick created with unetbootin it boots straight into the live version no matter which option I choose. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

    I have exactly the same problem

  15. First of all I want to thank you for the excellent work you’re doing here, I’ve downloaded many versions of xbmc from here and found many tips to get them run smoothly.

    Now the unpleasant part: I’ve tried this one on an Asus EB1020.
    First thing: as noted by other people, installing from an usb key is at least very difficult, I’ve needed to modify boot options manually (so maybe I could have screw up something).
    Anyway, the worst issue I’ve found is that every video plays all right if I play it first thing after boot. If I play the same file after I’ve played something else, the system can’t complete the task and often hangs immediately.

    If someone wants to make a diagnosis of the problem, just ask me all the details you need.

    Thank you again!

    Pascal,

    I managed to get this one installed by modifying the syslinux.cfg file written to my USB by unetbootin. The entries concerning the installation of XBMC contained the argument “debug-ubiquity” which differed from the previous versions, so I removed this argument and then it installed as it should.

    (I have no idea what this argument does, but apparently it can cause some kind of problem).

  17. A person necessarily help to make seriously articles I might state. This is the first time I frequented your web page and so far? I amazed with the analysis you made to create this particular submit extraordinary. Magnificent task!

  18. I know this web site presents quality dependent posts
    and other stuff, is there any other site which gives these information in quality?
