RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0) - Eisi2005 - 2018-11-08

Hi,

i use the latest version with emby. I have problems with my bookmark preview. This problem has been around for some time and has nothing to do with the latest version, but maybe someone has a tip to help there? Is this an Emby or a kodi problem?

Can you try a different swtich, maybe a Gig-ethernet capable switch? From your log, and your LE8.2.5 iperf results, you're connecting at 100Mbp/s. I wonder if you still have problems with 4.19 when using a different switch?


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0) - Milhouse - 2018-11-08

@jmerrilljr can you also post your kernel log from #1016 as I need to be sure there are no kernel errors being logged with 4.18.14 before pointing the finger at the errors being logged in 4.19-rc1.

Boot into #1016, then run dmesg | pastebinit. Then boot into #1016x and run dmesg | pastebinit. Post both urls. If you log in soon after booting you may avoid log truncation, otherwise add the log_buf_len=16M parameter.

That is a gig-ethernet switch. I guess the first thing is to get a new cable. Any other suggestions?

Nope, just a decent CAT5e cable to start with. If you still have problems with a new cable then we'll need the #1016/#1016x kernel logs to take things forward. If the new cable resolves the issue then it might still be worth having the logs - my plan is to ping them to a kernel developer familiar with the r8169, based on the assumption that the 4.19-rc1 kernel introduces some sort of regressive behaviour.

FYI; I'm also having the same issue in the recent builds, on a Asus Chromebox CN60, so the issue isn't isolate to @jmerrilljr or his network switch.  The following keeps repeating:
Code:
[ 67.003045] pcieport 0000:00:1c.0: AER: Corrected error received: 0000:00:1c.0
[ 67.003057] pcieport 0000:00:1c.0: PCIe Bus Error: severity=Corrected, type=Data Link Layer, (Transmitter ID)
[ 67.003063] pcieport 0000:00:1c.0: device [8086:9c14] error status/mask=00003000/00002000
[ 67.003068] pcieport 0000:00:1c.0: [12] Timeout

I went back to LibreELEC-Generic.x86_64-9.0-Milhouse-20181001210358-%231001-gbf09c1f.tar and the issue didn't occur, then I tried LibreELEC-Generic.x86_64-9.0-Milhouse-20181022210409-%231022-g86e23ee.tar whcih was also fine. Then I tried LibreELEC-Generic.x86_64-9.0-Milhouse-20181027210356-%231027-g75688f2.tar which did exhibit the issue.

I bypassed the switch and went directly from my computer into libreelec. I ran iperf:

I then installed 1016 followed by 1016x and got this:

#10016
http://ix.io/1rla
#10016x
http://ix.io/1rlc

Just to make things interesting I ran #1107 which works fine, now. I'm going to try to figure out the problem with the switch. I have a Time Warner modem that connects via ethernet to an Apple base station. The ethernet runs from the Apple basestation as does the wireless. I will refigure that setup.

Yes, I'm not seeing any errors in your #1016x kernel log when connecting at 1Gbps, so this may be an issue triggered when connecting at 100Mbps.

@jwegman It's most likely the same issue, you can confirm by testing #1016 and #1016x, but without kernel logs from #1016/#1016x it's not possible to determine what you have in common with @jmerrilljr. For instance, do you also have an r8169, are you connecting at 100Mbps etc.?

I went back to my original networking setup because Libreelec does not play nice with the non-switched setup. Lots of ip address changes, etc. so I'm back to the slow connection. However, #1107 still plays well. Go figure? I think I need to contact Time Warner/Spectrum and get some info re: their modem.

 I will retest #1016 and #1016x tomorrow at 100Mbps  and will get kernel logs for you.

I'm getting a new switch. I will do the above retests before I use it.

That is a gig-ethernet switch. I guess the first thing is to get a new cable. Any other suggestions?

No log no problem. In this case I'll need a kernel log. Compare #1016/#1016x. Logs from both please.
