Stable Linux Kernels, Video Drivers and XBMC (20131123)

Unread post by robroy » Thu Jun 27, 2013 1:19 pm

I created an archive of stable 3.0 and 3.8 linux kernels for the Odroid Linux platform, including installation packages for the xfree86-video-mali driver (October 2013) and the community version of XBMC 12.2 Frodo (November 2013).

The kernel packages include scripts to build a customized kernel from the GitHub repository, or to install a pre-built kernel from a stable release candidate.

Thank you for your efforts. I have two questions:

(1) I've tried to install your xbmc package on Debian Jessie. ffmpeg-odroid depends on libx264-123, but on Jessie, there's only libx264-133 available. Won't it work with that version? If it would work with that version, can you please change the dependencies to allow it? However, xbmc still works if I leave ffmpeg-odroid uninstalled. I think it is needed only for videos unsupported by the mfc?

(2) You provide two versions of the U2 kernel, what is their difference?
  • Kernel-3.8.13.10_Odroid-U2-MIDI.20131008.tar.gz
  • Kernel-3.8.13.11_Odroid-U2.20131030.tar.gz

Thats correct :)

The MIDI one is designed for use with Ubuntu Studio and includes MIDI instrument support which is configured at the kernel level.

Thanks. So can you provide an ffmpeg package with libx264-133 as an alternative dependency? That would be great.

@meveric provides all of my ffmpeg and xbmc packages. Perhaps he can recommend another build from his collection, since he includes both "wheezy" and "jessie" directories in his repository structure: http://oph.mdrjr.net/meveric/repository/
