XBMC Live on ASUS P5N7A-VM complete guide
#76
Musta78,

Are you running audio through HDMI or through the optical port? I had to update Alsa to 1.0.20 to get it working with 9.04.1.

I'm running through the optical. I've tried to update but I don't understand why it isn't working. I've basicly done what this thread say about updating alsamixer.

This is what I have done and no success:

TEP26
Code:

#sudo /mnt/install/AlsaUpgrade-1.0.x-rev-1.17.sh -d

STEP27
Code:

#sudo /mnt/install/AlsaUpgrade-1.0.x-rev-1.17.sh -snap

STEP28
Code:

#sudo /mnt/install/AlsaUpgrade-1.0.x-rev-1.17.sh -i


So when I run alsamixer after this it still says v1.0.18
Is there something I'm missing??

And the settings in xbmc is correct

* Audio Ougput -> Digital
* Dolby Digital AC3 Capable Receiver -> ON
* DTS Capable Receiver -> ON
* Audio Output Device -> default
* Passthrough Output Device -> iec958

[SOLVED]
All you need to do is add this (the file is now named .conf on the end:

Code:

sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf


Code:

options snd-hda-intel model=6stack-dig

great guide! it has helped me out alot...
i now have full hdmi a/v without dropping frames over vdpau.
my last remaining problem is extremely slow network speed. using wget, i can only pull down about 20k/s... even using sftp over a local connection, it maxes out around 40 k/s. obviously this makes streaming over SMB impossible. Same thing if i just boot up from the live cd. am i missing something or should i just get a separate network card?
thanks!

Step 16 fails for me under Live 9.04.1

Everything seems to work properly up to that point.

Reading through the thread, I tried updating libcdio-dev (as suggested in post 62) but it said I'm already at the latest version...

Here's what's happening... Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Reading somewhere else that a borked install of video card drivers might cause this... reinstalling nvidia drivers.

Nope... complete format and reinstall... same issue.

lol, how about read the readme as suggested?

You have to install libxtst-dev and libmms-dev too...

Anyway... this guide is way outdated as of today...

Well it wasn't my intention to offend you.

Part of the reason why I got the P5N7A-VM was based on this guide. I'm no expert on linux, so it was nice to see sort of a step by step to getting Live set up using this board with all the bells and whistles.

Just a suggestion, but if you're not willing to update the guide for new versions of Live, please do the following:

1) Edit and note on your original post what version of Live your guide does work with.

2) Add any additional steps needed to make the guide work that aren't part of what you already have in your original post.

3) Put in big bold letters at the top that you are no longer updating and supporting the thread.

Thanks!
