ELSE Wrote:Hello! I have already installed XBMC on FreeBSD 8.1#amd64 with ASRock A330ION motherboard from port. It works!!! It has a lot of depences and more of them I installed by pkg_add.
Also I have already installed nvidia driver for ION chipset.
I have no any problem during installation.
Now I use startx and do xbmc to launch it. I have some problems:
1. Russian charsets are not work (I am using an english now)
2. Cannot get sound through HDMI port. Video works as well.
3. I cannot find any way to get USB MCE Remote Control (based on Philips receiver) works.
Now I am testing it. If any problem will be appeared I will post here.
I have the exact same problems with my setup, a Zotac 330 ION board. I think the solution to the remote problem may be here: http://forums.freebsd.org/showthread.php?t=28262
I gave up before I saw that though because not getting the audio to work via hdmi is a show stopper for me. I put many hours on trying to get it to work, but it just want possible. I'm going to try a clean 9.0 install and the latest nvidia drivers shortly but I doubt that will help.
