Allwinner A10 : Is XBMC ported to MALI-400MP ?
Just got my WPA2 network up using wicd.

It didn't go as straight forward as the instructions and at first wicd-curses was giving me dbus errors.

I eventually had to remove dbus wicd and wicd-curses and re-install them. If anyone else has a similar issue do this;

apt-get remove --purge dbus
apt-get update
apt-get install dbus wicd wicd-curses

all should be well after that.

I think it would be good to start thinking about where this is heading. It would be worthwhile stripping out all the unnecessary stuff now (x etc) and lightening down the base.

Initial releases should default to the command line for network setup until we have configurable network from inside XBMC - without ssh its a pain trying to work on SoC based systems.

then the hard work begins of getting HWA as robust as we can.

All in all a pretty nice initial release. I'm going to go test some media.


If you want to get rid of the blinky cursor during your testing do this;

cd /etc/init/
cp tty1.conf tty1.conf.bac
rm tty*.conf

then if you ever want tty1 back just rename tty1.conf.bac back to tty1.conf
