@goldbär:

Wrong kernel, wrong kernel command line:

Quote:Command line: BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-3.8.0-31-generic root=UUID=404a4d13-d620-485f-93ea-73eee755e366 ro quiet splash vt.handoff=7

Please _follow_ the howto.

peace fritsch,

no, i'm pretty sure i hit every step.

i have these files as well:
Code:
xbmc@xbmc:~$ sudo dpkg -S TAHITI
linux-firmware: /lib/firmware/radeon/TAHITI_ce.bin
linux-firmware: /lib/firmware/radeon/TAHITI_me.bin
linux-firmware: /lib/firmware/radeon/TAHITI_smc.bin
linux-firmware: /lib/firmware/radeon/TAHITI_uvd.bin
linux-firmware: /lib/firmware/radeon/TAHITI_rlc.bin
linux-firmware: /lib/firmware/radeon/TAHITI_pfp.bin
linux-firmware: /lib/firmware/radeon/TAHITI_mc.bin

again, it's nothing to do with the videos i play, it's just the XBMC GUI...
i will try from scratch again.

Now it looks fine. Your dmesg is now a complete different one (3.11.3 - all fine there) - no need to reinstall.

What hardware are you running on?

Would it be possible to get a Frodo Version with the HD-Audio patches applied?

HD Audio patch is not xbmc related, it is a kernel patch.

locomot1f:

System -> Settings -> System -> Video Hardware: Vertical Blank Sync: Always Enabled.

You have done this?

yes, vsync set to always enabled

yeah. the sound.. not too worried about. that just happens on an initial install of XBMC. after that, it works fine.

So if I would freshly install Ubuntu like in this how-to, I could then use the regular XBMC Frodo? Or do I have to use fernetmentas version?

If you have an AMD GPU, which I assume - there is no correctly working official frodo version, that is fast enough to do vdpau on radeons - cause gl interop is plain missing in there.

Fernet's vdpau was merged into xbmc master _after_ frodo.
And the patches that make radeon oss uvd actually work are currently PRd and are also not yet in mainline.

.... still thinking....?

with the generic Drivers, I noticed that it is using the gallium llvmpipe. but that renders the menus VERY SLOWLY. and the menus look perforated.

is there a way to run these commands without a display?
Code:
To force the use of gallium llvmpipe software render:
$ LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1 glxgears -info
To force the use of old non-gallium software render:
$ LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1 LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH=/usr/lib/dri-alternates glxgears -info
To force the use of gallium i915 driver:
$ LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH=/usr/lib/dri-alternates glxgears -info
