OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi (Kodi 15.0) Part 1
#16
That's why we need to know *exactly* when the breakage occurred. Dropping RTL8812AU sounds like a far more plausible reason for this adapter no longer working, so if you could confirm the last working build that would be great, thanks.

As for a fix I'm sure it will come eventually, problem is the driver isn't mainline so it depends on someone releasing a 3.18 update (the current source doesn't seem particularly active in terms of maintenance so I may try and find an alternative).

*Exactly* which build is the first to behave poorly? Between #1210 and "last both" there are two more builds, have you tested these other builds?

ooo, you cached the upload-path to the old versions , so that I can't do a simple downgrade. Undecided

Can You give me the full path to the old version, so that I can change the path in DevUpdate-Add-On. THX
#18
All the download links in the first post of the old thread are still working. The old tar files are now in the archive/Helix folder.

I've worked out a patch for the RTL8812AU driver which will be in the next build, it's pretty straight forward and hopefully it will work.

Between kernel 3.12.x and 3.17.x, the cfg80211_rx_mgmt function is defined as:
Code:
/**
* cfg80211_rx_mgmt - notification of received, unprocessed management frame
* @wdev: wireless device receiving the frame
* @freq: Frequency on which the frame was received in MHz
* @sig_dbm: signal strength in mBm, or 0 if unknown
* @buf: Management frame (header + body)
* @len: length of the frame data
* @flags: flags, as defined in enum nl80211_rxmgmt_flags
* @gfp: context flags
*
* This function is called whenever an Action frame is received for a station
* mode interface, but is not processed in kernel.
*
* Return: %true if a user space application has registered for this frame.
* For action frames, that makes it responsible for rejecting unrecognized
* action frames; %false otherwise, in which case for action frames the
* driver is responsible for rejecting the frame.
*/
bool cfg80211_rx_mgmt(struct wireless_dev *wdev, int freq, int sig_dbm,
                      const u8 *buf, size_t len, u32 flags, gfp_t gfp);

but with kernel 3.18, the @gfp argument has been dropped:
Code:
/**
* cfg80211_rx_mgmt - notification of received, unprocessed management frame
* @wdev: wireless device receiving the frame
* @freq: Frequency on which the frame was received in MHz
* @sig_dbm: signal strength in mBm, or 0 if unknown
* @buf: Management frame (header + body)
* @len: length of the frame data
* @flags: flags, as defined in enum nl80211_rxmgmt_flags

*
* Return: %true if a user space application has registered for this frame.

* driver is responsible for rejecting the frame.
*/
bool cfg80211_rx_mgmt(struct wireless_dev *wdev, int freq, int sig_dbm,
                      const u8 *buf, size_t len, u32 flags);

The following patch fixes the RTL8812AU driver:

Although perhaps too late, I can confirm the D-Link DWA-171 no longer functions after build 1208.

Does reverting to the previous build cure the problem?

No, within version 1210 all was fine and fast.
But with the last both version I do have this problem and the feeling isnt fluidly

Hello,

My fault, I found the problem.
I wasn't a raspi problem, but one of my switches have had a problem.
When I change the topology all worked fine.

I can confirm:

Build 1216 - Adapter _not_ functioning
Build 1217 - Adapter functioning

Looks like the RTL8812AU driver patch works. Thanks again for the fix!

Upgraded to build: #1217 and streaming for several hours now (with no issues) @5GHz with D-Link DWA-171 WiFi adapter.
Wireless performance with new build/kernel/driver is almost as fast as Ethernet connection... Thanks Milhouse!

#29
If kodi is left at standby while showing a file listing it keeps continuously scrolling long file names from left to right, which is stressing the CPU a lot. Happened to me that the CPU temp reached almost 70°C without doing anything but just scrolling and scrolling...
Is there any way to disable scrolling at all, or even better: just keep it scrolling for let's say half a minute or overall xx times and than stop it?
This would save my Pi's lifetime a lot. ;-)
regards,
Thomas
#30
don't stay in the file list is by far the easiest solution
