Firefox 3

For those that want to get firefox 3 working on xdsl. Jason from the dsl forums has kindly compiled the nessesary tools.

First get firefox 3 here

when it's downloaded untar it (go into emelfm as root and double click it). Transfere the fiefox folder inside to the directory of your choice.

Second, go to the mydsl tool -> testing and install libc62.3.2-22sarge6.dsl and gtk+-2.12.9.uci. You will then need to run the gtk2 script in the mydsl menu. You can set gtk2 as permanent on a loopback/native install by right clicking on the mydsl icon and using the uci tool.

now go into the new firefox folder and run the firefox flie by issuing a command or just double clicking it in emelfm.

You can make a desktop icon as described further up in this thread.

So far I've been testing it out, and it runs pretty well. But unfortunately doesn't run to well with flash 9.0.0.48 which is the fast flash player which can be used with firefox2gtk2. But anyway here's the instrutions for those who want it.

digital sound output

QUOTE(bassquake @ Dec 3 2008, 07:04 PM) View Post

Finally found how to get digital sound out to the optical (or coax if youve done my mod!) for Xdsl 0.6 and later including 0.7.

Heres how:

- Ensure Alsa drivers are installed.
- Run Emelfm as super user.
- Create a new file asound.conf and put it in etc folder
- Paste this in:

CODE
pcm.card0 {
type hw
card 0
}

pcm.dmixer {
type dmix
ipc_key 1025
slave {
pcm "hw:0,2"
period_time 0
period_size 2048
buffer_size 32768
rate 48000
}
bindings {
0 0
1 1
}
}

pcm.skype {
type asym

playback.pcm "dmixer"
capture.pcm "card0"
}

pcm.!default {
type plug
slave.pcm "skype"
}


Then, in bash, type: alsactl restore to restart the alsa driver.

Start up Firefox and flash etc will play through digital!

For Xmms, you have to goto in Xmms, Preferences->Audio I/O Plugins->Output Plugin by choosing ALSA, then Configure and set Audio device to 'nVidea IEC958 (hw:0,2)'

For Xine, set the Audio output to Alsa, then change "Notify changes to the hardware mixer" under the Audio tab to 2. (You will probably need to change to Advanced under the GUI tab to see the extra settings).

Apologies if its a bit of a hassle, but I dont know how to set alsa to default to digital out. Ive no idea why "skype" is included but no sound would work without it. I took that code from here:

http://ubuntuforums....p/t-219631.html

I would have thought:

CODE
pcm.!default {
        type hw
        card 0
        device 2
}


Would set it to use digital by default but it didnt work.

Hopefully somebody has a more elegant solution! biggrin.gif

Xromwell not booting:-

ie:
The screen shuts down after a few seconds and about 5 seconds later either the fan or drive produces a spinning/whirring sound when I try to run the .xbe. Then it shuts down.

Solution:
The problem lays with a incompatibility with the bios/dashboard and xromwell. Try launching from a diferent dashboard or use a different bios for your chip/tsop.

Thanks to stevewal for this tip.

Using Xbox Infra-Red Remote as mouse in XDSL

You will need to have a loopback/native install then upgrade to XFree86 (from the upgrades menu). Then issue the command lircmd . If you want to permanently have this function working than add the command lircmd to /opt/bootlocal.sh.

Getting flash player working


QUOTE(stevewal @ Feb 20 2009, 06:27 PM) View Post

hi,
I've tryed my best to solve this.

Go to the upgrades menu.
Install: firefox gtk2; gtk2; flahsplayer 9; and alsa
When flash 9 is installing, choose flash 9.0.0.48 when prompted. If you've already installed, then click to install again (it won'nt download again, it will just give you the choice between 9.0.0.152 and 9.0.0.48) and choose 9.0.0.48

Flashplayer 9.0.0.48 is the only one that is fast enough for video on the xbox. All the other versions will look slow and choppy. But beware there are some security isues with this version, so it is probably best to use 9.0.0.152 for any app that needs access to your files etc.

flash 10 does not work for xdsl or dsl (or the new tiny core linux). The reason for this is the default glibc version is <2.4. This cannot be easily replaced.

Firefox 3 works in xdsl/dsl up to version 3.0.0.4. However firefox 2 is faster when running flash etc.

Ofcourse, mplayer is faster, which is what xmbc uses to play flash content. You can play youtube vids and vids from a few other sites using mplayer, by installing firefox greasemonkey extension and looking in the greasepot site for a suitable mplayer flash scripts.

can someone please stick this
Thanks,
Steve.

xvkbd virtual keyboard on xdsl0.7

Use the focus button to focus on any text box when using jwm (default window manager). Or switch to fluxbox (on the exit menu) and it will work like on xdsl 0.6.
