QuoteHi, xbmc works (even if with the issues described), it's strange that it doesn't start  :-\
When you started it from console, did you use sudo or sudo -s ? Because with only sudo doesn't start, you have to use the -s or start it as root.
So, try to give: "sudo -s rm -R .xbmc" and restart it again, hoping this will solve.
Let me know :)

All works fine, I had a problem because I connected through VNC, then open XBMC, and then connect a monitor to CB. Please upload nand version :)


Video is not playing, some permision problems, sudo mplayer ... works.


@ Batias: i suspected something like that, but you haven't told it :(  Remember that through vnc only x11 video are visible, but they are versy slow.
For nand version i have problems with my site, in the next days iìll try to re-up the torrent.

@ Vcka: what kind of problems have you with video? Have you used only mplayer, or smplayer too?

Smplayer plays only sound as mplayer, but if i run sudo mplayer then i get both sound and video.
And please, release nand version  :'(


QuoteAnd please, release nand version  :'(

+1, upload please.

I start Madsonic, service started but I can't to connect. Maybe I doing something wrong?

Hi guys, sorry for my delay, i'm a bit busy :(
I'll upload nand version next week, monday or tuesday i hope.

@ Vcka: from terminal try to give: sudo chmod 777 /dev/disp /dev/cedar_dev /dev/ump /dev/mali /dev/g2d
and retry to open a video with smplayer (without sudo), and tell me if it works

@ Batias: mp3 in xbmc are still not working :( i tried with vlc and mpd too, same result :'(
rythmbox and totem works without problem..it seems like if programs which uses upnp will crash with mp3  :-\
about madsonic...try this:
close madsonic than
cd /var/madsonic
sudo rm -R thumbs lucene2 jetty db

and start madsonic again. It will take a bit of time, so give a look at the cpu usage, when it roll back near 8-10% it should be started.

Let me know

Hello Tokka.

I've been very disappointed in the support for this board, it seems to be so scarce... It's been a couple of years since launch though, so I guess that's expected. I installed Cubian a couple of weeks ago, and tried dist-upgrade in order to have access to php 5.5 at the very least. The upgrade went awful and I believe my Cubian install is borked.

That being said, the fact that you posted here so recently gives me some hope. Do you think it's possible to get a more recent php (if I could get php 5.6 I'd be so happy) running on this? If not, do you believe at some point there'll be a newer version, or a version that can be updated with regular sources that point at official repositories?

Thank you so much!


Hi Veribaka,
on ubuntu 12 php is v. 5.3, you could check it here: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/precise/+source/php5
for debian i don't know, but you can try with
sudo apt-cache search php5
Unluckly, the packages manteinement is not depending by me or other guys which build a distro, but the official manteiners...and armhf is not well supported for the moment by the *buntu community.
Time ago i tested a bit ubuntu 14, but i really don't like it, much better 12 or debian (i have not many experiences with fedora, gentoo, etc).
Good luck :)

Hi Tokka,

I am trying to install the nand versión but I am not able to do it. The LiveSuits don't allow me to flash your image in the nand.
What is the process to do it?



Hi Nacho, the image is not designed to be used with the live suit, to install it you have to use the dd command from the sd card, as described in the first post.
Let me know the result :)
