Linux XBMCBuntu Frodo RC - AE: Error - no devices found
#1
Under Settings/System/Audio output it says "Error - no devices found" for Audio output device and Pasthrough output device.

I'm using an optical audio connection on a AT5IONT-I mobo. (Nvidia)

Update
Audio works booting XBMC from the installation USB flash drive with AVR turned on.
Audio works first boot after fresh install with AVR turned on, after a reboot (AVR still turned on) audio is gone and "Error - no devices found" in audio output settings.

Update 2
This issue seems to be related to using an SSD see page 7,8.

Based on previous solution a have added a sleep 10 in /etc/init/lightdm.conf just before the actual start of lightdm.

The audio subsystem is not initialized yet without this wait which yields in not finding any audio devices.

Somehow there needs to be soms check that (all) sound systems are intialized or you need to make sure lightdm is the absolute last process to boot.

I would bet a handful of pubic hair, that this is a permissions issue (since I experienced this myself) Though yours its xbmcbuntu and probably wacked, again.

User groups permissions http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid...pid1217997

Though obvious make sure its the username running xbmc, in my case the username is xbmc to make things "simpler"

In the event I just lost a bet there's also a bug ad a PR for something like this. https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/1779

When you report back can I have the result of

Code:
id $USER

Make sure you run that in your username and not under root in case.

I know it is really weird. I'm compiling with the patch right now, but I'm wondering if "sudo make install" will replace xbmc on XBMCBuntu because I think the binary on XBMCBuntu is called xbmc-standalone?

Code:
[email protected]:~$ whereis -b xbmc
xbmc: /usr/bin/xbmc /etc/xbmc /usr/lib/xbmc /usr/bin/X11/xbmc /usr/share/xbmc
[email protected]:~$ whereis -b xbmc-standalone
xbmc-standalone: /usr/bin/xbmc-standalone /usr/bin/X11/xbmc-standalone

Tried hard. Failed to compile.

Uppdate

-----------------------
XBMC built successfully

Patch is working, because the error is gone and I can select a few output devices.
Sadly I cannot get any sound. I tried all the output devices and I'm sure that my receiver is capable of DTS/AC3 (worked perfectly in Eden btw).

Try removing any asound.conf or .asoundrc you may have.
