Allwinner A10 : Is XBMC ported to MALI-400MP ?
Hi guys.

I've a Raspberry PI (256MB RAM) with OpenELEC and it works fine (more or less...) to see my videos. It's connected to my Panasonic TV (HDMI) and I control it using CEC (using original Panasonic remote control)

4 months ago I've also bought a Cubieboard A10 (1GB RAM) used since now for a small networked server (no display, mouse, keyboard, only network) and ArchLinux.
Now I've changed OS: Cubian a Debian Wheezy armhf standard installation coupled with a custom kernel suitable to run with Cubieboard A10 (and A20 too). It works very very fine, I'm very satisfied with Cubian !!

Now, just for fun, I want to compile XBMC for Cubieboard A10 and, in normal usage, to make a comparison with Raspberry.
This is the first time that I compile XBMC but job is working. When I finished I will post a newbie guide to compile xbmc.

But I've a question.
Running usual "make -C xbmc" I see:
[email protected]:~/xbmc_cubian/xbmca10/tools/a10/depends# time make -C xbmc
make: Entering directory `/root/xbmc_cubian/xbmca10/tools/a10/depends/xbmc'

Why "--disable-libcec" (libcec1 library and -dev ARE installed in my Cubie) Huh So I cannot use this XBMC with CEC like my Raspberry ?
Can I change xbmc_cubian/xbmca10/tools/a10/depends/xbmc/Makefile and reneable it ? It's safe ?
