Shouldn´t I?
makefile

Edit: Also, this confuses me a bit: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid...pid1643846

Edit2: Ok, just found this in the default configure.in:
Code:
case $use_platform in
  raspberry-pi)
     target_platform=target_raspberry_pi
     use_neon=no
     use_arch="arm"
     use_cpu=arm1176jzf-s
     use_hardcoded_tables="yes"
     use_alsa="no"
     ARCH="arm"
     AC_DEFINE(HAS_EGLGLES, [1], [Define if supporting EGL based GLES Framebuffer])
     USE_OMXLIB=1; AC_DEFINE([HAVE_OMXLIB],[1],["Define to 1 if OMX libs is enabled"])
     CFLAGS="$CFLAGS"
     CXXFLAGS="$CXXFLAGS"
     ffmpeg_target_os=linux
     ;;

And this in mine after running (Edit: raspbmc patches):
Code:
case $use_platform in
  raspberry-pi)
     target_platform=target_raspberry_pi
     use_neon=no
     use_arch="arm"
     use_cpu=arm1176jzf-s
     use_hardcoded_tables="yes"
     ARCH="arm"
     AC_DEFINE(HAS_EGLGLES, [1], [Define if supporting EGL based GLES Framebuffer])
     USE_OMXLIB=1; AC_DEFINE([HAVE_OMXLIB],[1],["Define to 1 if OMX libs is enabled"])
     CFLAGS="$CFLAGS"
     CXXFLAGS="$CXXFLAGS"
     ffmpeg_target_os=linux
     ;;

Is this right or wrong?

i am trying this new build on my analog output pi (i have 2, 1 hdmi to new tv and 1 thru the rca video out to an old tv) but every time i enable this one, the pi boots and then goes black. it seems it is loading fine, but i suspect it is automatically going to hdmi out, which is not active on this one. the only way to get it back is to rm .xbmc-current, relink the release and reboot. is this just on my setup? i will say the old one i had from feb worked fine
thanks

It might not be the same issue that I will explain below, but try the next build I will upload later tonight just in case.

In latest build I forgot to revert a commit that is not compatible with my buildroot, this can cause XBMC to crash on boot (reboot loop) or not boot at all (very random though).
Will make a new build shortly, but my question in my last post remains if anyone can enlighten me.... will add 'use_alsa="yes"' manually to see if that is the way to do it.

Or is it correct?

I don't think so.
I always leave ` Enable External soundcards` unchecked in your builds and my USB DAC shows up perfectly and plays fine.
I think it's only needed for the omx-alsa component, which is more or less deprecated.

Yes it did with flac files (and mpd) and updated kernel (rpi-update) 3.10.32 . So Hifiberry works on Raspbmc.
The new kernel did introduce a video regression here, so I removed it,

use_alsa="no" need to be changed to use_alsa="yes", otherwise the --enabled-alsa gets ignored.

"Enable External soundcards" should be disabled/removed.

Ok, thanks Dom.
I noticed though that none of the patches I use touch configure.in (only omxalsa patch does that and I don´t use it).
But newclock3 don´t have use_alsa line in configure.in at all.

Should it be there?

THX Miappa,
one of my two Pi's have this Problem: if i make shutdown (on OSD) will end in a reboot.
(fresh install on a 4GB-SC)

The only way is " sudo shutdown -h now " (with PuTTy over Network)

I think with use_alsa="yes", then alsa is enabled as a default, so --enable-alsa is not required (but does no harm).
Alternatively you can remove use_alsa from configure.in (like newclock3 does) and make sure --enabled-alsa is specified.

use_alsa="no" will make alsa supporting builds impossible.
Reply
Edit: Removed as I misunderstood.

I have always used nc3's configure.in and --enable-alsa in makefile, and alsa is also confirmed as enabled after 'make -C tools/rbp/depends/xbmc' (I always check this).
So I don´t know what to do differently?

I will try to add use_alsa="yes" on next build to see if it makes a difference though.

grep ALSA config.status
should contain:
S["HAS_ALSA"]=" 1"
D["HAS_ALSA"]=" 1"
D["USE_ALSA"]=" 1"

and some ALSA_LIBS/ALSA_CFLAGS paths.

Code:
S["USE_ALSA"]="1"
S["ALSA_LIBS"]="-L/opt/bcm-rootfs/usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf -lasound  "

That looks right. When xbmc boots you should see:

Even if you don't have a hifiberry, you can add snd-bcm2835 to /etc/modules and that should show up (and be usable).

Perfect, good to know, then I can properly test if it´s enabled or not.
Will check it on next build, thanks a lot.

The thing is that Bullsei got the HifiBerry to show up with your build:
http://forum.stmlabs.com/showthread.php?...0#pid96200

He had the white noise bug (caused by using 24-bit samples), which is now fixed.

So, either your build has changed from 3 weeks ago, or Bullsei did something necessary than ElectricPim hasn't.
Reply
Hmmmm....
Nothing has changed in the way I compile (only the XBMC builds), it´s sort of semi-automatic with same files and patches since before Christmas (edit: except --enable-alsa).

Just tried the above on last build and the build before that and it did work (can swith to external soundcard).

@ElectricPim
What do you add to /etc/modules?
