RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - pimmelsack - 2013-10-16

Hi Guys, i have trouble with PVR-Client.
My Pi run under OE 3.2.2 and the PVR-Client is a VU+ Uno.
If i stream HD-Channels, the sound / tone will be asynchronously after 20 min or so.
What can i do?

Thx for Help-

Sorry for bad english :-D

Do these builds (specifically the Gotham Popcornmix build) support booting from NFS ?

I've followed the guide here; http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=149607 and it just keeps booting to ;

Error in mount_flash: mount_part: Unknown filesystem

I've checked all the cmdline values and they look correct, I can also mount the folders via an existing Openelec installation I have, so it seems the share is ok too..

I am using an NFS boot with that build and it works fine.

I did have problems at first with DHCP and fixed this by setting a static IP address in the cmdline.txt, so I'd suggest having a look at confirming this first. Can you ping the RPi after it attempts to boot (or check your router to see if it is assigning an address)?


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - Swifty - 2013-10-18

Thanks for the confirmation.
I'm using static IP (but dropped back to DHCP when it would work) but neither seems to play ball Sad

I will take another look at it tonight now that I know it definately should work

As the author of that How-To, I'm no longer of the opinion that it's worth the effort using NFS to boot a Pi, although NFS is certainly still useful for /storage.

Note that auto-update is no longer supported by OpenELEC Gotham builds, not even when dropping files into the Update folder manually. Any non-local boot device will result in the update being abandoned with an "unsupported" message, so really there's no benefit I can think of for using NFS (or SMB, or even USB) to boot the Pi. Stay with boot=/dev/mmcblk0p1, put SYSTEM on your SD card FAT partition, and use NFS for /storage (disk=NFS etc.).

Hi MilhouseVH,

I still boot from NFS as I assumed it stopped SD card corruption and ran quicker. Is that no longer the case?


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - rbej - 2013-10-18

Updated Frodo Branch

- updated OpenElec build

- updated firmware and kernel

- sync with Frodo Popcornmix branch (frodo_rbp_backports)

I've used NFS and USB boot and can't see any benefit.

Currently I use the solution MilhouseVH described with a USB flash, i.e., SD to boot, USB to hold Storage partition. Boot is very fast, around 20-25s but it depends on the flash drive you use.

Anyway, for me boot times are a moot point. My RPis are always on.

The current config I use -> boot=/dev/mmcblk0p1 disk=/dev/sda1 (disk=LABEL and disk=UUID gave me problems a few weeks ago and I haven't bothered debugging).

** EDIT **
I keep my SD cards locked! No corruption.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - Swifty - 2013-10-18

Thanks guys i guess you're right actual boot from nfs doesnt really matter since its a rare occurance.
Speed of the storage partition however is another matter Smile

Regarding the problems with popups saying that addons are broken and asking if they should be disabled, although in the past, for me, this has mainly been just the PVR addons and after updating (although it seems to happen for Random Items script from time to time as well, not just after updating), I updated my brother's Gotham to the 02/10 build yesterday and he got the popups, so I told him to just say yes (he's not using the PVR addons). I was on the phone to him, so couldn't see his screen but after rebooting again later, he'd lost his xTV-SAF skin and it had gone back to Confluence (which was the only option available now).

After much head-scratching, I guessed it might be disabled so I got him to go into Addons and re-enable and it's working again now it but it was a pain and I hope these popups can be prevented in future somehow.

I actually just installed the Passion Repo (using repository.passion.xbmc.org.frodo-3.0.1.zip) on my system and immediately after, I got a popup telling me that xTV-SAF was broken and did I want to disable it. I said no of course as I'm using it but I'm not sure why it happened.

Does the System file ever get written to?

In other words, if the System file is on SD card can it still be write protected?

That would be the ideal solution I guess (having had a number of cards get corrupted in normal use).


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - trogggy - 2013-10-18

Only when you update. At which point it's over-written.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - h.udo - 2013-10-18

No, SYSTEM file is read only unless you start pocking around with

# mount -o rw,remount /flash

My cards are always locked.
