Full Version: Allwinner A10 : Is XBMC ported to MALI-400MP ?
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
May it be useful to start a new thread called "XBMC on A10/Mali-400" to discuss issues of the xbmca10-port and help to improve it? Imho the question in topic is already answered.

I think my armhf rootfs is missing python-libs because the python libs are definitely there in the ubuntu (already done sudo apt-get install python-dev)
Try to add in depends.mk:
Code:
export PKG_CONFIG_SYSROOT_DIR=${SDKSTAGE}
This helped me to avoid some missing dependendy issues. (dbus, hal, maybe python as well...)

Just saw that empat0 started working on android port https://github.com/empatzero/xbmca10/com...f1241f15f0
I got a successful build with few issues, and installed okay, but on start, xbmc fails with the following error -

UMP: ump_arch_open() failed to open UMP device driver
ERROR:Unable to create GUI. Exiting
Segmentation fault

Edit - Nevermind, it's a permission error, I'll work on it now, and I see that a user had a similar issue 4 pages back

Edit 2 - Crashed my system on execution after a few Home directory not accessible: Permission denied errors
Guys

What is the difference between armel and armhf

I have successfully compiled a package on lubuntu
I will compile a new with all the new update from empatzo

Thankd

armhf is the hard float variant of armel, providing a nice performance (~40% in most real world cases) boost when used in conjunction with a hardware hard float calculation processor, as found in the A10.
It runs linux+xbmc. Is the xbmc their development with support for vpu or not? Anyone?

Hi

Following my previous message I have investigated for quite a long time to understand what was specific with the H264 videos which exhibit artifacts (especially white or pink color saturation for a little duration) and after parsing AVC headers, I have just found that the issues appear with AVC streams which have weighted P-frame prediction enabled...

You can test by yourself this video http://www.mediafire.com/?amt4ge2mkzj to check whether you experience the same issue as I.

I have just logged an issue in cedarx-libs repository to report more formally this problem and I hope we could find a solution...

Regards
For those who don't know how to compile from source (like me Wink ) and looking for the latest images Guillaume has prepared latest ubuntu and debain images in his website http://guillaumeplayground.net/mele-a200...nstall-v1/

Its super easy and we can install it in nand (mele's internal memory) I am surprised to see login promt in just under ~8 seconds from cold boot. awsom..

This seems interesting, but even if they have support for VPU, I'm not sure they will make their source code available for using/changing for other devices. Has anyone yet made a successful build of XBMC for armhf? All the armel images I've tried had lack of drivers (bluetooth mouse, keyboard, remote), and the armhf image I've tried worked really well. The only downside was lack of XBMC build. I tried to build it myself, but got stuck on the same thing Vaevictus2 had problems with (Python library). Rellla's solution did not work for me tho.
Can anyone with the python error please post a complete config.log?

I'm at work now, so I don't have it here. Have you made successful build of XBMC for armhf?
yes. on debian/unstable-armhf from scratch. crosscompiled.

Crosscompiled? I tried to compile it natively on my Mele clone (and it takes forever, btw). That's probably the problem here, or at least, I think it could be. Thanks for the info, I probably misunderstood you when you were talking about this. Would you be kind, and post .deb somewhere, just to try how it works on armhf? All I could try on this box for now is Android version, and it works, but lags a lot.
I've tried compiling natively on MK802, but keep getting segmentation faults. Thought it was running out of memory, so added swap but to no avail.
