Re: omxplayer - GPU enabled video player

There's an Arch AUR package 'omxplayer-bin' . The raw tar ball has been updated with instructions based on Dom's comments for Debian installation --- I'll maybe see if I can make a .deb package tomorrow).

Re: omxplayer - GPU enabled video player

Indeed,  I really meant "you don't any extra packages in my obscenely overloaded Arch instance ...."

You will certainly need extra packages in any other distro, and some patience in making it work (just as one does to navigate the omxplayer build environment).

And you don't need any extra packages, it includes a private version of the ffmpeg libraries under /usr/lib/omxplayer

Re: usb? power? hub? wifi?

However the bug is not fixed, even with a git current kernel, either wi-fi or mouse work fine, but not together. Here wi-fi pings are 0.15ms, with the mouse, > 800ms.

Another wifi device fails to load its firmware, even if it's the only USB device.

Re: Arch Linux Enable SSH

If it's not already there, install the openssh package:

# pacman -S openssh

Then add it to the DAEMONS list in /etc/rc.conf, so it starts on boot:

DAEMONS=( .... sshd ....)

To start it immediately without reboot.

# rc.d start sshd

Re: qemu woes

The OSS warnings are harmless. You might also add -vga std, unless you really want to use VNC.

The problem is with networking. Does it work with simple user mode networking, rather than the redirect?  (  -net nic -net user ).
