Linux Radeon OSS with vdpau (howto)
Ok thx, I test both.
You need both together, so only one choice.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.
Hi,

Since my upgrade to 14.04, I've lost USB automount. Now, if I plug a USB stick, I have to mount it manually. Do you know why ?

Thanks.
Most likely your polkit permissions are not correct anymore. Check the pkla file from the first post. And check with udisks from the command line your permissions.

You have a mesa problem. Don't use bleeding edge, use 10.1.3 that is provided with Ubuntu by default.
Thank you!
I have migrated on new Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca \n \l.
And now VDPAU is working. But I couldn't get new version Kodi. I have got only XBMC (13.2 Git:0f3db05). Platform: x86 Linux 64-bit.
I have used this topic for installation. Can I migrate on latest Kodi? What should I do?
use the unstable or nightly ppa..

I see.Blush
But if you read this topic. You can see, that there is some problem in Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca related to PPA.Rolleyes
I have tried to use the unstable or nightly ppa. But I have got exactly the same issue that was mentioned above.Sad
you have to add the apt sources manually, as explained in that post or on launchpad (on every ppa). You will have to use the respective ubuntu codename instead of "rebecca"

Do you mean, that I should add those lines to /etc/apt/sources.list manually?
Code:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/team-xbmc/unstable/ubuntu trusty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/team-xbmc/unstable/ubuntu trusty main

And after that I should do:
Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install kodi kodi-bin
It will be enough?
That's what he said. You are still off topic in my topic.

Oh, sorry!
Excuse me!
I leave this topic.
Since switching to Trusty I have some issues.

The most serious, is a complete kernel crash when the MCEUSB transceiver is connected.
I have used this Windows remote with XBMC for a couple years, right out of the box with no unique config required.

With the GP-IR02BK USB IR transceiver plugged in, it appears there is now an interrupt conflict.
I can get through the full how-to installation without the MCEUSB connected, but connect it, and soon a kernel panic occurs due to an interrupt.

Without Lirc installed, the remote functions...just not all the buttons work.
If I run the how-to, but skip the Lirc app install, I get through the installation ok, but the logs still show conflicts that are only present when the MCEUSB transceiver is connected.

Most likely this is a hardware issue...just strange how my hardware never changed and it appeared with Trusty
I reflashed the bios, ran memtest, changed USB ports and cables and tried several clean installs with a few different mini.iso versions, kernels, and coffees.

There is also an issue of UDisks not working.
I can manually mount drives using UDisks on the command line, but need root permissions.
udisks --dump - http://paste.ubuntu.com/9471221/
Resorted to fstab to automount local drives.
I do not know much about udisks, so it will take a while...

These logs are post how-to installation, without the MCEUSB transceiver connected.

dmesg - http://paste.ubuntu.com/9469933/
kodi.log - http://paste.ubuntu.com/9469971/
Xorg.0.log - http://paste.ubuntu.com/9469977/
vdpauinfo - http://paste.ubuntu.com/9469980/
dpkg - http://paste.ubuntu.com/9469988/

These logs are from booting up with the the MCEUSB attached.

dmesg - http://paste.ubuntu.com/9470220/
kodi.log - http://paste.ubuntu.com/9470231/
Xorg.0.log - http://paste.ubuntu.com/9470233/
vdpauinfo - http://paste.ubuntu.com/9470248/
dpkg - http://paste.ubuntu.com/9470251/


For now I am just running without the remote and using the web interface

Thanks.
Strangely, org.freedesktop.login1.* disappear from pkla. I also reinstall usbmount. After all that, usb mount re-work.
Hello,

Thanks for the how-to. However, I'm having some trouble getting this to work. I've followed the how-to from scratch several times, and tried to troubleshoot with google, etc., but to no avail.

What happens is whenever X11 tries to start, I lose video output. So when using the upstart script, I lose video after BIOS and a brief minimal Ubuntu splash. I cannot actually do anything in Kodi, so there are no xbmc logs, but here are the other pastebins:

dmesg | pastebinit
http://paste.ubuntu.com/9492511/

cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | pastebinit
http://paste.ubuntu.com/9492560/

DISPLAY=:0 vdpauinfo | pastebinit
This command hangs.

dpkg -l |grep mesa | pastebinit
http://paste.ubuntu.com/9492565/

Thanks for your help.
Kernel bug:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Code:
wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.16.7-utopic/linux-headers-3.16.7-031607-generic_3.16.7-031607.201410301735_amd64.deb http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.16.7-utopic/linux-headers-3.16.7-031607_3.16.7-031607.201410301735_all.deb http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.16.7-utopic/linux-image-3.16.7-031607-generic_3.16.7-031607.201410301735_amd64.deb
