Lubuntu v3.0 and XBMC - compiling issues

Well, I'm trying to compile XBMC on the last Lubuntu version. Following these instructions on linux-sunxi I'm on a blocked point. This is what I've done:
- due some dependencies issues I've manually installed the 'UMP (Unified Memory Provider) userspace library' from http://linux-sunxi.org/Mali_binary_driver
- then, due samba-4.0 path issues I've applied this patch and added 'export CXXFLAGS="-I/usr/include/samba-4.0";' before start compiling.

These steps allowed me to compile succesfully XBMC, but it's not starting.

The first error I've encured was:
  1. root@lemaker:/allwinner/xbmc-pvr-binhf/bin# ./xbmc
  2. /allwinner/xbmc-pvr-binhf/lib/xbmc/xbmc.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libGLESv2.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Copy the Code
Looking for called shared libraries on the binary:
  1. root@lemaker:/allwinner/xbmc-pvr-binhf/bin# ldd /data/apps/allwinner/xbmc-pvr-binhf/lib/xbmc/xbmc.bin | grep "not found"        libGLESv2.so => not found
Copy the Code
So, searching for this file, I've seen the sunxi-mali had it. Maybe during the dependencies compile, this was skipped due some error. Moved to 'sunxi-mali' folder, I've tried to recompile it manually, but gives me these errors:
  1. root@lemaker:/data/software/xbmc-install/xbmca10/tools/a10/depends/opengles/sunxi-mali# make installmake -f Makefile.configABI="armhf" (Detected)Error: Failed to open /dev/mali: No such file or directoryVERSION="" (Detected)Error: Failed to open /dev/mali: No such file or directoryError: Failed to open /dev/mali: No such file or directoryError: Failed to open /dev/mali: No such file or directoryError: Failed to open /dev/mali: No such file or directoryError: Failed to open /dev/mali: No such file or directorymake[1]: Entering directory `/data/software/xbmc-install/xbmca10/tools/a10/depends/opengles/sunxi-mali'Makefile.config:57: Unknown/unhandled Mali Version ""Makefile.config:58: Use VERSION=(r2p4,r3p0,r3p1,r3p2-01rel1) insteadError: Failed to open /dev/mali: No such file or directoryMakefile.config:59: *** Unknown/unhandled Mali Version "".  Stop.make[1]: Leaving directory `/data/software/xbmc-install/xbmca10/tools/a10/depends/opengles/sunxi-mali'make: *** [config.mk] Error 2

So i tried to provide by myself the configure options (ABI based on architecture: armhf and version choosen the last):

So, now the libraries are located (but maybe wrong...)
  1. # locate libGLESv2.so/data/apps/allwinner/xbmc-pvr-binhf/lib/libGLESv2.so/data/apps/allwinner/xbmc-pvr-binhf/lib/libGLESv2.so.2/data/apps/allwinner/xbmc-pvr-binhf/lib/libGLESv2.so.2.0
Copy the Code
And now, executing xbmc I obtain:
  1. root@lemaker:~/.xbmc/temp# /allwinner/xbmc-pvr-binhf/bin/xbmc/allwinner/xbmc-pvr-binhf/lib/xbmc/xbmc.bin: symbol lookup error: /allwinner/xbmc-pvr-binhf/lib/xbmc/xbmc.bin: undefined symbol: eglGetDisplay
Copy the Code
The xbmc log ens with:

Any idea?


Sorry, I don't know much about that. I will keep track this post. Thanks for Simon

Now I'm searching help on linux-sunxi mailinglist. I'll update here in case of some interesting news.

Bye, Simon

xefil, Could you please PM me your email?

Tony have you got the hwpack for the Banana Pi?
I have found an image i want to try and adapt

xefil, Could you please PM me your email?

Hi guys,

Thanks to the guys @Lemaker I was able to load the missing modules, compile sunxi-vdpau drivers, and, after correcting some additional problems on XBMC source code from linux-sunxi, compile it and start it correctly.
The stream is played in hardware:

  1. D(Audio: dts (DTS), 48000 Hz, 5.1 (side), s16, 1536Kb/s P(aq:99% Kb/s:1475.37, att0.0db)
  2. D(Video: h264 (High), yuv420p, 1920x1080[SAR 1:1 DAR 16:9])P(fr:23.976, vq:99%, dc:A10', Mb8.56, drop:0, pc:none)

  3. C( ad:0.000 a/v0.053, edl_-, dcpu 6%, acpu:14% vcpu 1% cache:0B 100%)W(fps:23.51 CPU0:35,4% CPU1:36.7%)
Copy the Code

Important is at dc:A10 (hardware decoding) and the CPU that is not at 100%. Before, in software, it is dc:dc:ff-h264 and the CPU is 100% all the time.

It's not completely smooth, it happens that it crashes, but it's a good step in the right direction ;-)

This evening I'll try it better at home.


That is great, have you tried the fbturbo driver on it as it should speed i up using less resources.

Well done getting that far, can you create an image when you get chance?

Thanks for your suggestion Thepiman. I'll try it out too. Currently I'm compiling VLC with cedar to give it a try as well. Testing videos here at home, I haven't reached a fluid play as expected even if it IS with hardware decoding.
I'll share the image soon or, at least, share the steps I've followed.
