It's a no go. Rebooted system and didn't run it.

Anyone know if the O!Play can handle XviD streams that use GMC?
XBMC for Asus O!Play - tomrwaller - 2009-10-21 17:44
I have just picked up an Asus O!Play and was wandering if there were any plans for a port of XBMC for it?
The device looks pretty powerful in that it can play a vast amount of containers, shame the GUI is a bit rubbish.
I think an XBMC port would make this unit shine!

Tried it with F/W 1.11N and got "Unsupported GMC" message on screen.

Or add it to the rcS file in /usr/local/etc
Be careful that when you have optware on an external drive you have to wait for it to become mounted otherwise it won't work. Do a x second sleep before you perform other commands.

Interesting thread but I just can't imagine you to run XBMC on a 400MHz MIPS CPU as some forum members hope for...

I was wondering if you could lend me a hand, I´m trying to install optware.
First, I have a doubt, I tried:
ln -s /tmp/usbmounts/sda5/ opt
being sda5 the secondary NTFS partition of the usb attached hard drive. Then
And there I see a folder sda5, is this correct?
But I see no /opt/tmp or /tmp in /tmp/usbmounts/sda5/
Am I doing something wrong, or just getting it wrong? (totally newbie btw ) I have little space free and I wouldn´t like to kill my O!Play installing optware xD.
Also tried next step:
tar -xvf ipkg-cl.tgz
And it downloads the file but size is crearly wrong (3920) and tar says invalid tar magic, so I tried downloading it directly with the PC and it´s a lot bigger and 7zip opens it without a problem.

For those of you who were scared by the stories of bricking your O!Play and decided to install optware on a USB drive: I figured out how to do that today. I had to reinstall optware anyway, because I updated my firmware. It isn't straightforward to install to USB drive because the USB drive needs to be formatted to support symlinks. Here is the full list of commands:
WARNING: YOUR USB-DRIVE WILL BE FORMATTED WHEN CREATING THE NEW FILEFORMAT!
This way only ipkg-cl will be installed to the O!Play, all other files will be installed to the USB drive, avoiding bricking due to filling of internal HD.
