The download from asrock works perfectly on the kernal that is included on the xbmc Live Dharma beta.
If it worked before try to re-install the driver and if that does not work I assume you need to compile from source in which case I think your best bet is start from scratch AND not upgrading the kernal.

I tried reinstalling and following the procedure from the start but no luck. I dont wanna format and start all over again.
Any other tips?

This is what I did and it works on xbmclive beta4:
Quote:sudo mkdir Downloads
sudo wget 'http://europe.asrock.com/downloadsite/drivers/Nettop/Ubuntu/IR(10.04)2.6.32-25.zip'
sudo dpkg -i lirc-nct677x-1.0.4-ubuntu10.04_kernel2.6.32-25.deb
If that does not work I dont know why I and I suggest that you read the instructions on the asrock site.

thanks to bcsmith79's solution my asrock and my remote were working perfectly for months now.
it was a long time since my last ubuntu update so i went ahead to update.
since i did it in the past i learned that i should always switch to the working kernel for the remote to work (2.6.32-23-generic).
After updating and rebooting and changing my default kernel back to 2.6.32-23-generic, i noticed that my remote has stopped working.
i get the following message
Quote:rossoneri711@asrock:~$ sudo dmesg | grep lirc
[ 143.299533] lirc_dev: IR Remote Control driver registered, major 61
[ 143.306156] lirc_wb677: disagrees about version of symbol lirc_register_driver
[ 143.306166] lirc_wb677: Unknown symbol lirc_register_driver
anyone know of how i can fix this?
Thanks in advance.
I am using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

You can try 'dpkg-reconfigure lirc-modules-source'. (and maybe remove the "old" modules manually if it does not work)

USB disks does not work correctly in Karmic. Stay with 9.04 until a stable Lucid is out.
I have now finished the setup of my brand new Asrock ION 330 and though someone could have some use of my notes.
Killasample plays fine, it drops 4-6 frames. I am not sure if that is considered a problem.
My setup is more or less the same as the wiki:
+ some ION 330 specific stuff
Change shared memory => 512
Upgrade BIOS => 1.60 (Download DOS version, unzip and put on USB => Smart Flash in BIOS)
Remove the boot logo
Enable "good night LED" if you want all light of on the box.
Other than that no changes to BIOS (No over clocking)
1) Install Ubuntu 9.04 (or 9.10) (user/pwd xbmc/xbmc)
The easiest method is to install the desktop cd. I dont do that, instead I do a minimal install +
sudo apt-get install xorg gdm gnome-core network-manager-gnome gnome-system-tools gnome-utils x11-xserver-utils
Since the disk is pretty big you should probably create a separate partition for media. This way you can re-install without wiping the media. You need much less than 10G for the system but since we have plenty of it I normally use 8-10 for the system and 3-4 for swap. Create and format a partition of the remaining space and remember the file system (ext2 or ext3). Do not mount it at this point.
2) Install all updates
3) Enable auto-login for XBMC
4) install ssh
sudo apt-get install ssh
*from now on I do everthing over ssh from my winxp laptop using putty.exe
Since my MS MCE Remote model 1039 does not work in xbmc without LIRC I installed it
1) sudo apt-get install -y lirc
Select Windows MCE Remote (new)
2) Test Remote & Lirc
in terminal and press home MCE Home button. This should return "Home" in terminal
a)Add sources 9.10
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/ppa
* I will add add-ons soon
b)Add sources 9.04 (old and not verified)
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/xbmc-addons/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/team-xbmc/jaunty-ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 318C7509 9317790E
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xbmc xbmc-standalone
sudo apt-get install xbmc-skin-*
sudo apt-get install xbmc-eventclients-*
sudo apt-get install xbmc-scripts-*
* For 9.10 Karmic I am using the incudded version 185 driver
Edit: Install nvidia PPA instead to avoid problem when upgrading kernel
1) Add source
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/nvidia-vdpau/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
3) Add key
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com CEC06767
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic nvidia-glx-185
sudo nvidia-xconfig -s --no-logo --force-generate
Policy kit to allow Power management
*9.10 karmic: sudp apt-get install policykit
*Not sure if this can be skipped for 9.10 Karmic or not
sudo polkit-auth --user xbmc --grant org.freedesktop.hal.power-management.suspend
sudo polkit-auth --user xbmc --grant org.freedesktop.hal.power-management.hibernate

sudo nano /var/lib/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/custom-actions.pkla
[Actions for xbmc user]
1) Start XBMC in Gnome
2) Change same settings
Settings, appearance, screen: Fullscreen
3) If you want to use sound over HDMI:
In latest version of xbmc just select hdmi in menu
If sound is playing too fast try with custom:
plug:hdmi or plughw:0,3
1) sudo alsamixer
Unmute and set volume (MM means muted and OO On)
Hit "m" to toggle mute on/off.
Do not forget to unmute HDMI if you are going to use that
2) Store Settings
sudo alsactl store 0
3) If any problem with store, remove pulse audio and try again
sudo apt-get remove pulseaudio
Fix navigation sound with HDMI (not needed anymore?)
Create a file in home directory:
Wifi WPA2 in XBMC session (USB adaptor)
1) Left click on network icon and select network & Connect
2) Right click on network icon , edit connecttions, wireless, select network, Edit - Click Always allow - Check Available to all users
- check remember autorization & enter password
3) Reboot and make sure that no dialog is necessary to connect wifi => Should work fine in the XBMC session.
There is a bug in karmic network-manager. When mking connection available for all users this just causes the connection to disappear
set "managed=true" in [ifupdown] section in /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf
To boot directly into the XBMC session:
1) Logout - F10 - select Session - XBMC
First time select "just this time" when function verified repeat and set to defalt session
2) Return to login by exiting XBMC
3) Back to Gnome
F10 - Select session - Gnome
Suspend/ Resume on Remote
Seem to work out of the box (in 9.04 Juanty)
Resume by pressing Power button on remote.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
HW cursor fix
sudo sed -i '40i\ Option "HWCursor" "False"' /etc/X11/xorg.conf
ENABLE 1080p 24Hz (screen section)
sudo sed -i '50i\ Option "DynamicTwinView" "False"' /etc/X11/xorg.conf
sudo sed -i '50i\ Option "FlatPanelProperties" "Scaling = Native" /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Make sure it ended up in the correct sections (I am not sure that this sed stuff is working):
sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Mount a partition
sudo fdisk -l
Hopefully you can find your unmounted partition. (if not or if you did not create the partition you need to install gparted)
In my case the partition is /dev/sda3
Create a mount point (in this case a folder in the root):
sudo mkdir /storage
Edit the fstab:
sudo cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab_backup
sudo nano /etc/fstab
/dev/sda3 /storage ext2 defaults 0 0
ext2 since I remember selecting that when I created the partition.
sudo mount -a
5) set permissions
sudo chown -R xbmc:xbmc /storage
sudo chmod -R 755 /storage
1) I have also installed NX server to access the GUI while using xbmc in the console.
2) I only use xbmc in the standalone session now. If it should be used in Gnome irexec and some addition scripting is necessary to make it play nice.
3) I use deluge bittorrent client in a NX session in the background. Transmission did not work for me. With deluge it is back to normal.
Looking for some help..
I was sent your procedure by jacksback.
I have been trying to install xbmc on Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala). I am following the proceedure from the link below. The issue I am having is with the PPAs. The system does not seem to see them. I have tried everything I can think of at this point short of reinstalling Ubuntu.
I get the message xbmc: Depends: xbmc-data xxxxx but is not going to install E: Broken packages.....
Yes the multiverse repository is enabled.
I have tried to manually added them in /etc/apt/sources.list
The mother board is a
Zotac Synergy Edition Atom N230 1.6GHz Mini-ITX Motherboard IONITX-E-E
With 2 Gig of memory and 160 Gig STAT drive
Link to the procedure:
Is there something I am missing?

Not too sure why you having issues with repositories but maybe a reinstall is the best option. I too have a Zotac board but with Intel CPU and onboard Graphics. I found that 10.10 was better suited for my board. After installing I followed the instructions on the Tvheadend thread and successfully installed XBMC first time. Maybe you have some older repositories that are interfering with your update so a fresh install will clear them.
