Hi,

today I tried an update to XBMC 11.6 (xbmc-11.0_p76_pre.tar.gz) and when I try to play some kind of TV or movie, XBMC crashes immediately.

System: Gentoo
Kernel: 3.4.4
Videosystem: GT218 (ION2) with Nvidia-Drivers 302.17 and xorg-server 1.12.2
Backend: VDR
Error Message in XBMC-Crashlog: PVRClient - GetTimers - addon 'VDR-XVDR Server:127.0.0.1' returned an error: not implemented

Vdr with xineliboutput works like a charm. And when the X-Server starts I get an error:
Quote:The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:
> Warning: Type "ONE_LEVEL" has 1 levels, but <RALT> has 2 symbols
> Ignoring extra symbols
Errors from xkbcomp are not fatal to the X server
*** glibc detected *** /usr/lib64/xbmc/xbmc.bin: malloc(): memory corruption: 0x00007f8944002130 ***
Ok, downgraded to:
- vdr-1.7.27
- nvidia-drivers- 295.59
- nvidia-settings-295.40

Didn't help. To revert to xbmc-11.0_p70 I would need to downgrade libpng-1.5 to libpng-1.4 too which affects a lot of system packages.

Update:
https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/30379 seems at least regarding the segfault slightly similar to my problem. Downgrading nvidia-drivers didn't give me any success. And the "Extra Thumbnail" setting I didn't find, but nevertheless I have my doubts, that this setting has to do something with the crash.
Ok, some more information. The crash gives me some messages in the console:

The glibc I would exclude as an error source. The last update was on 1st of June. XBMC still worked fine after that.

Any hints or ideas?

Please post a full debug log. Who has built the package for Gentoo?
Hi there,

I tried now the git-version. But immediately when I select a TV channel, it crashes again. I'll try to provide as much information as possible. If you need some more logs or other information, just tell me.

xbmc_crashlog-20120707_125700.log

System info:
emerge --info
Ebuild xbmc-9999.ebuild
Environment changes to get PVR functionality
xorg-server-1.12.2
libpng-1.5.11

The ebuild to install xbmc is the official ebuild in portage tree. It takes the sources directly from the Pulse-Eight Git Tree.

Behavior
XBMC starts normally. I can enter the menus. When I select something (weather, Addons, ...) XBMC freezes.

"Sometimes" XBMC startx normally, I can play movies and music from hard drive. The weather plug-in works too. On startup XBMC also tries to update the epg data. If I enter the LiveTV section and try to select a tv or a radio channel XBMC crashes immediately.

Haven't figured out yet, on which conditions it starts normally and when it freezes directly. Hope it helps anyway.

Update:
I downgraded temporarily to XBMC-11.0 without PVR support. Seems to work quite stable. Hope the PVR stuff will work again.
First you should check that the version of XBMC PVR is compatible to the version of XVDR. The api still changes and compatibility might be broken. We maintain VNSI for vdr within the branch. I think pipelka builds XVDR against this version: https://github.com/pipelka/xbmc/commits/master/
Hmm, I'm not really sure about this. The Tags on his Github have the same names as the ones from Opdenkamp/Pulse-Eight (pvr-ppa-odk48) and reach up to version 48. This Tag was uploaded 10 months ago.

Tags on the Opdenkamp Github provide pvr-ppa-odk73 as the newest versionen uploaded 3 months ago. On the main page he refers to Pulse-Eight.

So it seems to me:
Pipelka (xx-48)
Opdenkamp (xx-73)
Pulse-Eight (xx-76)

I found a quite recent french tutorial for VDR. They also use XBMC from Pulse-Eight and xvdr-addon-xbmc + vdr-plugin-xvdr from Pipelka's Github.

The strange thing for me is, that I used pvr-ppa-odk-70 for quite a long time. After the system-update (libpng-1.5, kernel-3.4) and pvr-ppa-odk-76 I got those issues. But a downgrade to the previous config (libpng-1.4, kernel-3.2, pvr-ppa-odk-70) didn't bring back the previous working behavior.
There is a reason why we keep maintaining VNSI in this branch. It's not that we like the duplicate work or say VNSI is better than XVDR. We have expected exactly those things to happen.
Your crashlog states that it segfaults in XVDR.
Yes, I tried it now on another computer. XBMC from the Pulse-Eight Github compiled fine, started and worked apparently perfect. Then I compiled xmbc-addon-xvdr. I even didn't need it to activate within XBMC. When I tried to start XBMC, it froze completely.

So confirming your statement the error occurs in the XVDR addon.
Found this:
https://github.com/pipelka/xbmc-addon-xvdr/issues/54

They only write about 32bit systems. In my case it breaks also my 64bit system.
FernetMenta. I guess I need your help once more. As you told me I tried to install the "fallback" plugin. Unfortunately that isn't as easy as it seems.

hey guys i'm running the new beta and it's slow on a dual-core 4400+ with 6 gig ram and stutters on streaming. besides the crash to 12.04 64bit desktop when going to my music folder in xbmc. oh gtx275 in it as well.
musv, you need either the sources of vdr or vdr-devel package (or whatever it is called for gentoo)

themoddingden, please open a separate thread, or explain the relationship to this topic.

That's not the problem. vdr-1.7.27 is installed. And in Gentoo almost everything is build from scratch. Means, I can access the source.

Will try it like described here: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid...pid1120127 when I'm at home again.

It's not really a good idea to install something aside of the package manager.
I just noticed that the directory for addons has changed. In case you have pvr addons in /usr/local/share/xbmc/addons, delete those.
There was also a problem with the Makefile, which somehow has to be patched via the ebuild and failed in this state. So I just used the unpack part of the ebuild, which copied the downloaded files to a temporary directory. There I corrected the Makefile and built the vnsiserver.so manually. Afterwards it was only necessary to copy that file to /etc/vdr/plugins/vnsiserver. And what should I say. It works like a charm.

I don't know, if there were some bigger performance improvements in the last PVR versions (from 70 to 76), but I notice a huge difference. The channels change much faster and also the GUI seems to be more agile.

However, after the yesterday tests I'm quite happy with vnsi and I guess I'll stay for some time with that solution.

Thank you a lot for your help. I had to some things again.
