Hello,

here i'll explain what I did to compile xmbc upstream on the smarttop.

It's not a nice job but I'm not a developer and help to do this better is welcome :).

I've made a bad job as I modify CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS in the configure file to replace the -mloat option "softfloat" by "hard".

Perharps an export of CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS would be better...

I passed --enable-gles --enable-neon --disable-vdpau to configure

After that the configure an make work nicely.

I modify :

1) kernel boot option to have 32 bit Color Depth support needed by xbmc : video=mxcdi0fb:bpp=32

2) xorg.conf for the 3D :

Section "Module"
Load "extmod"
Load "dbe"
Load "glx"
Load "dri"
Load "dri2"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "IMX"
Driver "imx"
Option "ShadowFB" "off"
Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"
Option "Backend" "Z430"
# Option "Compositing" "off"
EndSection

I found the informations above in the forum.

Xbmc is very slow on the smarttop, but it's in 32 bits so I've tried in a smallest color depth, to do this I reverte the modification of kernel boot option and modify color depth test in /usr/local/share/xbmc/FEH.py.

It's a little bit faster but far away from the graal :).

I'll try to start xbmc without any window manager to get more cpu and ram...

FYI Christian from debian-mutimedia.org make a port for sid armhf of it's repository.

It's slow because it's rendering all things on the cpu, iirc.
