Linux Radeon OSS with vdpau (howto)
@Claudio.sjo: Yes

@the guy with the broken mpeg-2 decoding, here is your fix: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/mesa/mesa/co...b3b0124687

That will come, when we rebuild mesa.

super fritsch!

OK after MUCH research I found no working way to sort this. So here is a dirty method...

  1. Wipe your system and reinstall with the 13.4 minimal iso. This has a functional USB keyboard driver.
  2. Once installation is complete execute the following commands
  3. sudo apt-get update
  4. sudo apt-get upgrade
  5. sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
  6. sudo apt-get install update-manager-core
  7. sudo do-release-upgrade
  8. reboot and you will now have 13.10 with working keyboard
  9. Carry on following the guide on page 1

An alternative is go to your recycle shop. Buy yourself a € 1,- ps/2 keyword. Will get you sorted aswell! Yours is less lifehacky Smile.
Thanks for all the hard work on this fritsch et al Smile

Any chance of an updated set of pvr-addons... refusing to load here:

ERROR: PVR - Add-on 'MythTV cmyth PVR Client' is using an incompatible API version. XBMC minimum API version = '1.9.0', add-on API version '1.8.1'

Thanks!
Hello, great work! Blush
The hardware acceleration work in XBMC, but vdpau works not Huh
I have any time ago raring with xvba/fglrx. After upgrade to saucy I switch to radeon drivers, kill xbmc with xvba support, remove xorg.conf and fglrx drivers. The I make this from post #1

I can play 1080p h264 Files with 20-30% CPU, but if I type
Code:
[email protected]:~/$ DISPLAY=:0 vdpauinfo
display: :0   screen: 0
Failed to open VDPAU backend libvdpau_va_gl.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Error creating VDPAU device: 1

[email protected]:~/$ DISPLAY=:0 VDPAU_DRIVER=r600 vdpauinfo
display: :0   screen: 0
Error creating VDPAU device: 23
Other thing ist any time freeze the Videos or crash XBMC

Is my vdpau (0.7) to old?

It seems your installation is foobar :-)

Before you do a clean reinstallation, have a try with some OpenELEC Generic nightly, to find out if general usage is supported: http://openelec.tv/forum/20-development-...tly-builds

nix foobar Wink
I need my system not only for xbmc. Ok, maybe I have less crashes with future kernel and the release v10.0 of Mesa.
If all Patches are in the releases of Kernel (3.13??) and Mesa, then I make a clean installation. I think zhat is than 14.04 or 14.10
Currently, you don't even have vdpau running, cause your system seems to be messed up with some vdpau_gl driver.

You can easily install Lubuntu full installation, remove pulseaudio and libasound2-plugins and just install the other packages from this Howto.

This howto does not heal "broken" installations, of course.

Clarification needed

@fritch and all other devs: Firstable I very appreciate your work, but I (probably others too) need some clarification about the future of this project.

Is there a risk that this project becomes a "dead end" like the XBMC-xvba?
I currently have a reasonably running system based on AMD and XBMC-xvba, but now I'm stick a particular Linux/ fglrx / XBMC releases and cannot upgrade any more.

Will your patches/extensions/drivers go into the official Linux and XBMC releases?
If yes, what ?
Ubuntu 14.04?
XBMC 13 ?
what mesa version, will it be part on oficiall Ubuntu distribution?
a) All of our patches will be in xbmc v13 - most is already in and it will be fully working at the end of this month
b) With kernel 3.13 everything, that is now manually needed (mostly the hda bitstream audio patch) will be in mainline.
c) The mesa stuff will be in mesa 10.0 and will be usable from there

the main difference to xvba is, that this time - we use ordinary VDPAU - which works on mplayer, vlc, xbmc, youtube, flash, ...

XVBA had to die cause AMD did not care for it and we were left back with broken drivers and missing features.

@fritsch: in future, make you an repository for the v3.12.x Kernels? Nice for autoupdates Wink

Like to hear that. Big Grin
@TheCritter: Do one, i will link it - I like to support thinking people - but I don't support lazy ones.

someone willing to test that?

completely new mesa, including DRI3 support for intel
@fritsch: thanks for the clarification !
