Thanks, but I had allready installed that to /usr ... and did a ldconfig etc but I still get the error ..

The libs are:

Quote:/usr/lib/libfstrcmp.a /usr/lib/libfstrcmp.so /usr/lib/libfstrcmp.so.0.2.0
/usr/lib/libfstrcmp.la /usr/lib/libfstrcmp.so.0

and the header is:

Quote:/usr/include/fstrcmp.h

What now?
post your config.log somewhere and I'll have a look later, but I don't have time to look into compiler issues right now.

the result should be the same with both, buffering up till you got enough data or drop packets (which makes the stream unwatchable).

Ok, thanks , it is at http://pastebin.com/2jYAtrQd

@RoboSK ... I can't seem to get at those URL's will try again tomorrow from work.
robosk should be able to help you, since he's building for the same dist, so check his links

tested,working...

Hi RoboSK,

Can you provide some info on how I use these links and what each link is?

I am guessing they are svn checkouts of PKGBUILDS but what are the features of each one? (I havn't followed all of thread if this has been discused ..)

Thanks,
Bernie
fast way: download files (ignore "subdirectory") to dir 1,2,3,
cd 1
makepkg
sudo pacman -U -packagename(*.pkg.tar.xz)-
cd ..
cd 2
...repeat...
Hey guys give this skin a go with the PVR and tell me what you think (in the other thread not this one)
http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?p=648582

thanks Dushmaniac for your hard work on this Big Grin
regards,
Ruud.

Thanks,

I have LiveTV working fine now with this build, tv guide ok.
However, I have an issue with tvheadend recordings:

If I create a Video source to my recordings directory, I see all the files and immediately get a crash and exit.

If I connect to the UDP server to look at recordings, I get the list of recordings, but when I play one of them, I just get the busy icon for a long time them an error message.

Is there any way to resolve this? Is there a particular version of tvheadend I must use? I am using version r5558 at present.

Also, is there a way to re-build with VDPAU enabled? I see it is disabled in the PKGBUILD file. If I delete the offending line, how do I re-build without fetching all the source again when I do a makepkg ...... I have a very slow connection so I don't want to download 1G of files again ... also is there a way to do an update with makepkg at all ..

Thanks,
Bernie
bmentink:
vdpau: change this
from
--enable-external-ffmpeg
to
--disable-external-ffmpeg

from
--disable-vdpau
to
--enable-vdpau

into PKGBUILD - and run - pkgbuild use "old" downloaded source - i hope Smile

but i enable external ffmpeg/ disable vdpau with good reason, "internal" ffmpeg is not stable, match moore crash...


Tvheadend recording - you have "strange" chars into name recording ? example ("title") -> http://trac.lonelycoder.com/hts/attachment/ticket/289/1


edit: ah crash xbmc not Tvheadend ... Smile
@bmentink: please provide a full crash log of the crash. What do you mean by "If I connect to the UDP server to look at recordings"?

CrashLog is at --> http://pastebin.com/um7Xa22M

Sorry not UDP, I mean I ticked the box that allows XBMC to serve up media, is it UPNP? then when I add a new video source, I can connect to that server.

Quote:@RoboSK: into PKGBUILD - and run - pkgbuild use "old" downloaded source - i hope
run pkgbuild? I don't have such a program .... what program do I run, or option to makepkg, to stop it downloading the source again. Will "makepkg -e" do the trick?

By the way, I notice that my EPG is out by an hour (daylight saving?) how do I fix that.

Thanks
Bernie

you're using system ffmpeg libraries. use the normal ones please.

go to the tvheadend addon settings, change the correction and reload the epg to be sure it worked correctly.
