Linux Radeon OSS with vdpau (howto)
Hello!

This thread is quite big and the tutorial from 2013.
I was running XBMC 12.? and today I installed the latest Kodibunto.

My System is a Acer Revo RL70 with an AMD E-450 + Radeon 6320
I was running the fglrx Drivers to get files with DTS-Audio run smooth.

I have read that nowadays vdpau is the new way to get DTS-Audio files running and i noticed that my installation of Kodi allready comes with vdpau drivers (as seen in my Settings), so i made the settings in Kodi that were suggested in this tutorial... I guess the other part is irrelevant?

I also set the Audio on Passthrough since my revceiver can handle DTS-HD, etc..

However Some DTS Movies still stutter on some scenes and i dont know if this is a issue with vdpau or an issue with my network (sometimes it says buffering), its just strange i had no issues with XBMC 12
Provide the logfiles the first post wants you to provide. If you did not follow this hoto at all -> choose another thread.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.

why is that perfectly clear?
since the kodi user still has rw rights on the file through group rights it should still be able to play the file.
this strange permissions resulted from unraring a rar file.
Code:
[email protected]:~$ touch heinzasd.txt
[email protected]:~$ chmod 064 heinzasd.txt
[email protected]:~$ cat heinzasd.txt
[email protected]:~$ LANG=US cat heinzasd.txt
cat: heinzasd.txt: Permission denied

so?

After deciding to update to Kodi, requiring me to update to Trusty first and as a result nuking my install I decided to start over. Followed the howto to a tee and have most of the system working as before but no sound cards are found according to aplay -l. Where to start? Please advise, thanks.

mmh, nothing in dmesg ...

sudo aplay -l | pastebinit

lsmod |grep -i snd | pastebinit

Both are empty, so I just output here

[email protected]:~$ sudo aplay -l | pastebinit
aplay: device_list:268: no soundcards found...

Check if it's disable in the bios (unlikely for hdmi audio). Try OpenELEC from usb stick and see.

BIOS checked: OK. I saw Pulse was not installed in the logs but as per doc I shouldnt need to. What do I look for when trying OpenELEC?

Tried this as well:

Just if audio works.

Audio works in OpenElec out of the box. Lists the device as HD-Audio Generic. Please advise, thanks.

Good, then upgrade the kernel, please to something newer. You can use Ubuntu mainline to accomplish that.

Perhaps easier:
sudo apt-get install linux-image-generic-lts-vivid linux-headers-generic-lts-vivid

via the trusty-updates repo
