OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 3 (Kodi 14.0)
Is Rbej planning on making custom builds again once Gotham goes stable? His Frodo builds were great, and it's been so nice using the Gotham betas and mature alphas, I don't think I'm ready for Helix adventures.
Gotham stable builds with Popcornmix patches = official OpenElec builds.

I'm aware. Your Frodo builds had a number of Gotham bound enhancements/fixes, but were more stable and conservative than the Gotham alphas - a middle ground between bleeding edge and official builds. I was interested in knowing whether, down the road, you plan to do that again wrt Gotham.
New OpenELEC Helix build: #0503
(Supercedes previous build)

Code:
# uname -a
Linux rpi512 3.14.2 #1 PREEMPT Sat May 3 00:39:55 BST 2014 armv6l GNU/Linux

# lsb_release
OpenELEC_Helix (Milhouse) - Version: devel-20140503005248-r18321-gb5520e3

Based on tip of OpenELEC master (b5520e3, changelog) and tip of XBMC master (adf6587, changelog) with the following modifications:
  • Includes newclock3 (except for 6965cbf, a patch to avoid hammering the GUI, which has been replaced with a static spinner)
  • Includes Python regex package for evaluation purposes. Initial benchmarking indicates generally positive (and in some cases, significant) performance gains. See this post for a description of how to test effectiveness of this package with addons
  • Excludes the OpenELEC linux-01-RPi_support-4b3694f patch in favour of sourcing these and possibly more recent patches directly from kernel branch rpi-3.14.y
  • Excludes the OpenELEC xbmc-master-newclock3 patch in favour of sourcing these and possibly more recent patches directly from newclock3 branch
  • Default setting for "Show RSS Feed" changed to disabled
  • Disabled "Total Duration" in Confluence (see build #0221 for details)
  • ALSA is enabled and any suitable hardware should be available in XBMC Audio Settings
  • FIQ FSM is enabled by default. See initial post for more details.
Build Highlights:

Enabled 5 MB contiguous memory area (CMA) required by latest FIQ FSM.
  1. OpenELEC:
    • mediacenter: fix build of addon stuff if XBMC=master
  2. kernel 3.14.y:
    • The Latest FIQ FSM requires CMA - enable with the following patch:

raspberry pi cec logo samsung D8000 done show up it works only on fredo What can I do to make this work
Hello with build 0502b the autostart.sh dont work.... Anyone with this problem?

I have a D8000 it works fine.
Did you know there are firmwares on samsungs page that never got pushed over the net. Many not just a few. Have you tried updating it?

Disclaimer: remember upgading a firmware can under very unlucky circumstances brick the TV.
Im not responsible if you try it and things go wrong. Smile

Ps. Im on T-GAP8DEUC-1029.0 they stopped pushing via internet around 1021 or less. Undecided
It's a pretty big update fixing some compability issues in smartview, Also write down your settings if they are not burned into your brain like mine.

Finding your current version is nuts; It is located at support->contact samsung on the TV heh.

Are you sure - it's working for me.

What is in your autostart.sh script, maybe part of it is failing or hanging?

What do you see when you run " systemctl status xbmc-autostart.service"

  • ALSA is enabled and any suitable hardware should be available in XBMC Audio Settings
  • FIQ FSM is enabled by default. See initial post for more details.
Build Highlights:

Updated FIQ FSM fix. New music database version (46 -> 48) - expect slow initial start while database is upgraded.
  1. OpenELEC:
    • init: optimized wake-on-lan script
    • plymouth-lite: update splash, thanks to 'klojum'
    • iptables - adds state and iprange moduls
    • projects/RPi/xbmc: update advancedsettings.xml, this fixes #3079
  2. XBMC:
    • [musicdb] drop filename CRC from the songview - it's not used for anything useful, and the filename is indexed anyway (PR4604)
    • [musicdb] drop setting of unused strKaraLyrFileCRC column in karaokedata table (PR4604)
    • [dbwrappers] drop unused ComputeCRC() function (PR4604)
    • [musicdb] NULL out entries in the song, karaokedata and album tables that are no longer used. (PR4604)
    • [history] adds IsInHistory() to check if a path is in the history (PR4485)
    • [ui] when checking if we should return to the current directory or go to a new one when activating a media window, check the history rather than comparing the current path. fixes #15015 (PR4485)
  3. kernel 3.14.y:
    • fiq_fsm: fix dequeues for non-periodic split transactions. If a dequeue happened between the SSPLIT and CSPLIT phases of the transaction, the HCD would never receive an interrupt. See: raspberrypi/[email protected]

Is there a list or cross reference of GPU firmware and kernel version dependencies for OpenELEC 4.0 / XBMC Gotham on rpi?

In my application we have to run a custom GPU and kernel, so we can't easily update to the latest of both.
There is no list. Each official OE build uses the latest (or very recent) firmware and kernel, my builds always use the latest firmware and kernel.

You don't always need to update firmware and kernel when updating SYSTEM although it is advisable to do so.

You could always build your own OpenELEC with your custom kernel.

Thanks Milhouse. We will build OpenElec ourselves, but are concerned about possible API changes or critical bug fixes in the GPU and/or kernel that xbmc may be using. Any idea how we could track or find these?
I can only suggest you closely monitor the commits from popcornmix.
