Has it been that long since my last entry? Crikey! Have been busy, just lazy on the blog sorry .. after the earlier failure of OpenELEC or it being too hard for my pea brain .. I concentrated on other issues. Then I discovered the Raspbmc project ... yes another XBMC affair but ...

OMG what a polished and professional distro, working media centre in no time with Android remote, Android media streaming (OK it does iPhones too but keep it quiet) and the best bit is the CEC HDMI signal intgration which means the TV remote actually controls the Pi .. was gob smacked! Pi-II is now the impermanent media centre in the living room. This thread is now closed ... for now ;-)

Well I battled for some days trying to compile OpenELEC and failed miserably, going to park this one for now. Details are in the OpenELEC forum see link above. Going to try out Wheezy next :-)

14th June 2012 update - been chasing this down on the OpenELEC forum and seem to have an answer for the "error 2" condition but seems like to generate a 100MB build consumes more than 10GB of disk space which has killed my VM .... see the relevant thread:

... its a log not a blog .... just my thoughts and notes on this lovely little thing and its quest to get it going :-)

OK so far, and to my shame not mentioned in the log, have got the standard Debian build up and running no problem apart from having to fiddle with the config file to get the screen over-scan sorted on the HDMI output, I also need to fiddle it to force the sound to go out via HDMI to the monitor as it is being reluctant, more on that later :-) One of the many things I would like to do with the Pi is have it as a HTPC box and the OpenELEC XBMC project seems like a good bet:

So I followed all their instructions and set the compile off and woke up to this bunch of errors :-(

/home/markyd/ /home/markyd/ hidden symbol `__start___libc_subfreeres' isn't defined
/home/markyd/ final link failed: Bad value
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make[3]: *** [/home/markyd/] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/markyd/'
make[2]: *** [elf/subdir_lib] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/markyd/'
make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/markyd/'
make: *** [system] Error 2

Will have to consult he who knows (my father in law) to see whats up, but if anyone reading this has any ideas :-)
