RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - bartdm - 2013-01-03

Hello all,
does this manipulation work on the latest RBEJ work?

Code:
touch ~/.enable-swap
sudo reboot
RBMC will create and start to use swap file after reboot.

thank you

You don't need an image file, just replace the SYSTEM, kernel.img, bootcode.bin etc. files in your existing image (they'll all be in the FAT partition) with those from rbej's package.

What is the purpose? Faster XBMC?

OpenELEC doesn't support swap.

I am never sure ehich version I should be running, could someone explain the difference if any between

http://openelec.thestateofme.com/OpenELEC-RPi.arm-devel-20130103181527-r12815.tar.bz2

and

My new custom build.

Does the latest build on "thestateofme" site include the Xbmc etc updates?




RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - Trixster - 2013-01-04

My understanding is that the builds on thestateofme are the 'official ' nightly openelec builds, and the ones rbej puts up are his custom builds which are compiled with 256mb boards in mind.

Ok, if anyone interested, I solved my problem with AirPlay not working on Mountain Lion by disabling IPv6 *on Raspberry Pi*: http://wiki.openelec.tv/index.php?title=Disable_IPv6_Support

Are these custom builds the same as the 1080p GUI builds or different?

With the buffersize I couldnt get it to work previously when I tried it with official builds. I assumed it was because the R-Pi uses OMXplayer and it had the buffer built in to it, so it was different to other version of XBMC. Unless I had syntax wrong for the xml file.

<advancedsettings>
<network>
<cachemembuffersize>10485760</cachemembuffersize>
</network>
</advancedsettings>

What is the default buffer size?

-----

I have been using you r12669 1080p gui build and it has been great, I really like it.

It was working great for a while but I just had some buffering issues creep in. It started because add on stared updating themself, I dont turn the auto update off but the buffering issue has hung around.

I might do a fresh install of r12669 and turn addons updates off straight away. Maybe newer versions of them buggered that build.

20M. Which actually requires 60M of RAM, so is way too much for a 256M board.
