Intel NUC, XBMCbuntu and Mupen64plus
#1
Hello

Yesterday I received Intel NUC, the celeron version. Fantastic device and XBMC is running very smoothly. After some problems I managed to install XBMCbuntu to 16GB USB-stick.

Now I want to try ROM Browser and play Nintendo 64 games with mupen64plus. This is where I have a problem. Some googling revealed that XBMC is locking the sound card completely and
therefore mupen64plus cant get sound out. I have tried dozens of asound.conf but none of them seem to work. Can you help me?

Mupen works fine if I shutdown XBMC but I'm eager to use the fancy rom browser.

I have the latest XBMCbuntu, v13.

Properly suspend Audio Engine as most xbmc addons do, then it's fine. Start it from external launcher addon and configure it accordingly.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.
