XBMC on Cubieboard 2 is already possible?
« on: July 20, 2013, 09:27:18 AM »
Hello sorry I'm new and I'd install OpenELEC on my Cubieboard 2 but I can not find image yet. Can you tell me if there are already images to download and where to download ?

And if not, Ubuntu works well for A20? What is the best version so far? Sorry for the bad english but I'm french lol

The cedarx hw video decode library is having problems on the cb2.  So xbmc isn't working yet.

There aren't many.  There are a couple here: http://cubieboard.org/download and CUBIUNTU here: http://www.cubieforums.com/index.php/topic,463.0.html.

Sorry for digging out this old topic.

Has anything changed regarding cedarx library on Cubieboard 2 in the past months? Is it possible to run XBMC/OpenELEC on a Cubieboard 2 without any problems now?

best regards
DCL

Based on this thread: http://www.cubieforums.com/index.php/topic,807.0.html XBMC is working on linaro CB2; don't know if anyone's even tried to bring it up on OpenELEC, but presumably it will work if built with the right libraries and run with the right kernel.
