XBMC running under wine works well with the proprietary nvidia driver installed.

PostPosted: Wed 15 Jan 2014, 07:02    Post_subject: Kernel module blacklist  

Hello.

I install Quirky 6.1.2 on panel computer. It's great distr! Almost everything is working well.
Forgive if my question seems to you silly.
I don't want to load some modules for more quick boot (for example all modules snd*, battery and some others).
I try to add its modules in BootManager to blacklist, reboot PC, but lsmod shows its in memory. Nonetheless these modules is listed in files /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and /etc/rc.d/MODULESCONFIG.
I can unload these modules with rmmod and load again with modprobe without any problems.
I think blacklist isn't work properly. May be I do something wrong or need to do something else?

Will there be a new devx for 6.1.3?
With such a smal change in Quirky, I would think not.

Here are the instructions to use a PLOP CD to boot a USB Flash disk.

After pulling out the 2nd USB and rebooting, Quirky 6.1.3 booted properly. I have not seen the boot error since the reinstall.


I noticed this behaviour as well when I used my PLOP CD to help in
the booting of Quirky 6.

I posted my compile of cinelerra video editor 2.2.
It works well if you have a fast processor and lots of ram and hard
disk space.

Hi Don,

I installed your Cinelerra package and dependencies on Quirky 6.1.3. It looks cool but the stop, forward and back buttons in the bottom left window were giving me issues. Is this supposed to happen? I didn't read the instructions.

Best,

Charles Slavvo67

Billtoo, have you considered running openelec (a lean version of xbmc) vs xbmc on wine/quirky? I multi-boot openelec off of the same Quirky 6 USB stick with Precise 5.7.1 in it as well. Openelec runs lightning fast because it is running native on bare metal in RAM. It is also super easy to install - just put 2 small files (kernel and system) in the boot partition, create an ext4 partition for config/data, and add a syslinux entry - a somewhat similar approach to puppy's (except Quirky 6). Update is automatic as well.

Thanks, I'll read about Openelec on their wiki page.

EDIT:
I downloaded the stable image and have it working on my Acer Revo nettop, seems to be working fine so far, may need to upgrade my monthly download limit.

I found a package of cinelerra 4.2 that works in Quirky6 and
many other Puppies. It's a very powerful video editor.
