Hello!

Thanks for all your hard work on these releases.

If you don't mind:

On what XBMC version is V.11 built on? Latest stable or a more recent svn/nightly?

Thanks!

DjStiky i have the same problem with my Zotac ION D board, Wifi itself seems to work fine so far but when it comes under "load" like i want to transfer something to it from my Win Box either via the Samba Share or via FTP or SFTP the WIFI Connection stalls and the connection dies after 3-4MB


Non-Ion boxes? - DeanM3 - 2010-02-05 16:26

Quick question.

Is there any downside to installing this on a non-ion nvidia box? I.e. a Zotac Geforce 9300 mini-itx board with a intel e5300 c2d.

Also, is there a quick way to kill the transmission / sabnzd services if you do not plan on using them.

Thanks in advance.

What does the transmission service do? IOW, how do us noobs know if it's needed?

All versions (from v1 till v11) are built upon the latest stable (9.11) xbmc version.

Thanks for info!


Alaska wont work that good then. As it requires a later version as I understand it.

Still all good =). Thanks for your hard work.

Transmission is a Bittorrent client.

erhnam,

was having issues with BluRay playback on your live builds.
Downgrading to makemkv 1.4.11 helped with the issue as described in their forums
appreciate if you can do the same in the next builds

well apparently all that is installed like transmission, snanzb, and other stuff is to help n00bs like you get a out of the box experience thats what erhanm said to me a few posts back... http://forum.xbmc.org/showpost.php?p=499540&postcount=391

Im pretty sure your not the only n00b who has no clue about most of what it entails in using modded installs like this.

though having said that im pretty sure this is a minority the rest are too lazy to care

though Im reading ppl now asking how to remove some of the extra stuff...... mad really...

ernham's release changes are perfect.

couldn't ask for a better version!

Using ernham's v10 LIVE version

In my Noob noodling attempts, I ended up crashing my system, and having to reinstall v10 fresh. Howwever, all is not as before - as the system boots into xbmc live, the first XBMC screen drops back to text field, scrolls some quick text, and then back to the XBMC main screen. From there on, it boots normally. Since the reinstall, I note the system is running a little more sluggish than before - menus and RSS feeds especially. Video playback is still fine.

Currently, I'm using about 27-33% CPU usage when the system is at rest, running the mediastream skin. This seems higher than I recall.

Can anyone comment on what their resting CPU is in Medistream? What is the best way to go about obtaining my crash log?

thank you -

Michael

I figured out one problem - it's the previously described [ubuntu-boot-experience] nForce2_smbus conflict bug:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/440470

I still am trying to determine if my CPU is working harder than it should. Anyone running at about 30% use while at rest in medistream skin?

Thanks again for this fantastic software - upgrading to v11 tonight!

We get it, you don't care for this release, there's no need to be a dick about it. Instead of calling people who are only interested in getting a good set-top box setup lazy, why don't you make your own release? As far as removing the extras, apt-get remove works wonders. This release has almost everything I'm looking for, so I'm very appreciative of ernham's work. Now, if only there was a blu-ray ripping script to go along with the playback, this would be perfect.

My reason for asking is from a security perspective. I don't want ports open that don't need to be. I don't download stuff from bittorrent sites so I reckon I can stop/remove the service.


Install to Hard-Drive from USB Stick? - Bahndit - 2010-02-06 04:00

Hey guys,

I have done my best to search around and solve this problem on my own but I can't seem to find the answer that I am looking for. I would like to know if it is possible to to install XBMCLive (specifically ernham's optimized version) to an internal Hard-Drive from a USB Stick with the Live image on it.

Let me specify: I am not trying to install to a USB drive.

I am just tired of burning CD's and I would like to perform an install from a USB stick rather than a CD.

Using unetbootin or some other tool like it I have successfully installed the CD image onto a USB stick and successfully booted from it. However when I select the install option the installer gets hung up on trying to mount the CD drive. Any thoughts?

As usual thank you, everyone, for your time and help.
