It would be really great if someone upload an iso for ZBOX-AD02 working VAAPI.

just rebuilt my zacate system, using tge latest build from unstable ppa. Seems vsync/24p bug has been fixed.

I just put together an E350-based HTPC and figured I'd give XBMC on Linux a shot in order to get the most out of this low power setup. The trouble I'm fairly inexperienced when it comes to Linux.
I followed the instructions on the first page to the T, but I'm running into a few problems. First of all, I was unable to upgrade to the 3.0 kernel. This is what I get when I attempt to get the packages necessary:
E: Unable to locate package linux-headers-3.0-generic
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'linux-headers-3.0-generic'
E: Unable to locate package linux-image-3.0-generic
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'linux-image-3.0-generic'
I decided to skip that part and install the rest. Got to the point where I needed to build xbmc. At this point I would get:
configure.in:335: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_PROG_LIBTOOL
configure: error: cannot find install-sh, install.sh, or shtool in build-aux "."/build-aux
I attempted to just install the latest nightly of XBMC, which actually worked. 720 content looked great, but trying to play any 8-11GB 1080 content was a bit jerky. Not slide-show jerky, just not quite smooth.
What am I doing wrong here?

you probably did not enable vaapi
- craigdabbs - 2011-08-26 13:23
No need to update to the 3.0 kernel, and no need to build xbmc from source anymore.
The way iv been installing is to add 2 ppa's
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/unstable
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
Download latest ati drivers, and run sudo ./ati-driver.sh --buildpkg Ubuntu/natty
install the generated packages sudo dpkg -i *.deb
install the xvba stuff like the instructions on first page, and dont forget to add the lines into enviroment file.
finally sudo apt-get install xbmc
vaapi should be enabled by default and there seems to be some progress for 24p-vsync issue for me to.
press o during playback, should give you some stats to see what decoder your using for HD playback, also missed frames ect
- Headcase_Fargon - 2011-08-26 14:09
Appreciate it. I'll give that a try this weekend. For clarification, will hitting O during playback actually say "VAAPI" somewhere in the information displayed if it's running in that mode? Or is it just framerate, codec, etc?
- craigdabbs - 2011-08-26 14:29
yep, vaapi will be shown on the 3rd line i think , if its using cpu it will say ffmpeg or something like that.
libcrystalhd-dev missing - Duefi - 2011-08-27 01:33
thank you Robotica for the great tutorial.
I was following it this night and got some problems with the package "libcrystalhd-dev".
Aptitude doesn't find it. Where do I get it from? At the following steps xbmc doesn´t configure.
Thanks for help!

crystalhd support is not needed for fusion/libva... so if you dont need this because you dont use a crystalhd card disable this

Thank you sraue. I´ve got nearly all working now.
Sound is missing, (keeps xbmc crashing) need to do some more research on that. Don´t want to use hdmi sound output, cause my amplifier doesn´t support it...
It´s great to have that small, quiet, energy-saving, xbmc box.
Okay, I´ve worked all morning on this one. Perhabs, someone got me a clue.
System: Asrock E350M1
As soon as, I start a video, XBMC crashes with:
I got an solution by killing xbmc afterwards, set
and restart xbmc, Video playback works. Adding this line at /etc/rc.local won´t do it.
Some suggestions? Thanks for Help!
