Linux Radeon OSS with vdpau (howto)
Brown paperback for me. After yesterday fixing session with Fernetmenta and the AMD folks, I rebased wrongly and pushed an if case too far down.

That means: Your fps will apprimately be halfed until tomorrow. But on the good side: Tomorrow skips and drops with temporal and deinterlacing should be solved or at least much, much better.

good news, i did notice lots of frame skips since upgrading.
saucy is smoother than raring though i use my e350 for more than playing video and had to use cpulimit to limit a few apps that made XBMC grumpy.
no longer needed in saucy though.

Hello,

In power saving/power function is inactive. It show shut down, and I cant change to sleep. It is bug, or I do something wrong?
How can I sleep xbmc?

Thx Smile
I'm having infrequent frame drops, seemingly regardless of Mesa or XBMC version, and whether I use 23.976 or 60 fps. They're more rare now with the recent updates (I did not update to the latest version, though), but they're still present. It could be something about my hardware (Shuttle XS35GSv3 with AMD HD 7410m) which has given me trouble in the past, or the fact that I'm on Lubuntu 13.10 because the mini.iso can't find my network card, but those are only (highly ignorant) guesses.

Here are the logs. Be gentle if I screw this up, it's my first time posting xbmc logs:

[email protected]:~$ cat ~/.xbmc/temp/xbmc.log | pastebinit

[email protected]:~$ dpkg -l |grep mesa | pastebinit

Thanks again for the hard work with this. Despite the occasional drops, it's already smoother than fglrx/Catalyst ever was.
Wait for the version tomorrow and revisit. Btw. the OSD is not the best Idea to match drops. Open the OSD - check the skips - close it - wait 10 seconds and look again.

Cool, I'll do that.

Not sure I quite understood what you meant there, though. Should I rather just set the log level to debug and let it play without the debug overlay, and then pastebin the logs? Or is it better to turn it on and then turn it off?

Anyway, I'll update tomorrow and see if it helps. And thanks a lot for the quick reply!

This we will fix with tomorrows fernet master. Happy trying.

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
@gWr71Tv: Thanks for those steps - i will link them in the second post!

If you are starting from windows then rufus (http://rufus.akeo.ie/) will actually make a nice working usb stick for you..
Only thing you have to remember is to say no to install grub on master boot record and instead choose /dev/sdb as it will default to dev/sda which is the usb stick.
If my post helped you then there is a nice "Thank user" button on the bottom of the post.
Today's XBMC is perfect on my E350. No frame drop. Rofl
Hello

I upgraded the lastest version of xbmc (xbmc 13.0 alpha10, comp 2013.11.11), but in power saving menü, power function option is inactive. It show shut down, and I cant change it to sleep. It is bug, or I do something wrong? Maybe missing some package?
How can I sleep xbmc?
Noticed a screen flicker while watching dvb-T2 recorded content, a black flash for a fraction of a second.

xbmc debug log http://paste.ubuntu.com/6401838/

coincides with a height change in the log.

Code:
20:52:52 T:139838586832640  NOTICE:  fps: 25.000000, pwidth: 1920, pheight: 1074, dwidth: 1920, dheight: 1074

20:52:54 T:139838586832640  NOTICE:  fps: 25.000000, pwidth: 1920, pheight: 1080, dwidth: 1920, dheight: 1080

keeps changing between 1080 and 1074.

The 1074 is the 1080 - 2 * 3 which we use to blacken the first 3 and the last 3 row when doing deinterlacing. Thanks for reporting. Fernetmenta will look after it.

Just a question, yesterday ubuntu went to kernel 3.11.0-something
shall I continue using 3.12.0+ ?
