I wanted to test DVD video on VLC as per your request, but it turns out I'm not smart enough to figure out what version of VLC I have. So I downloaded and extracted 3.0.12 to be sure of having the new one, but I'm not sure what to do with it. I did the same with vlc_addon_dvd.tar.gz, but I have no idea where to find the VLC folder to put it in. I'm not sure I have any DVD video to try it out on anyway.
Many thanks for testing the RC5! :-)

You can start the new VLC Media Player with ./run_vlc.sh. You don't need to remove your installed old VLC. Please copy the 2 libdvdcss libraries from the vlc_addon_dvd folder to the lib folder in the new VLC folder.

Hi All,

Unfortunately KVM HV doesn't work anymore on my X5000. I tested it with QEMU 5.0.0 today [2]. The virtual e5500 QEMU machine works with the "RC4 with KVM HV" and with the "RC5 without KVM HV". The complete system freezes if I use KVM HV with the RC5.

I have bisected and 785025820a6a565185ce9d47fdd8d23dbf91dee8 (powerpc/mm/highmem: use __set_pte_at() for kmap_local()) is the first bad commit.

I was able to revert this bad commit and after a new compiling, KVM HV works again.

I created a patch for reverting the commit.

I reported this issue to the linuxppc-dev mailing list today. Link: FSL P5040: KVM HV doesn't work with the RC5 of kernel 5.11

Thanks,
Christian

Earlier today I did this:

Code: Select all

cp /home/fienix/vlc_addon_dvd/libd* /usr/lib/powerpc-linux-gnu
based on instructions I found in some DVD stuff you were writing last May, but I don't know how to find the new VLC folder. I haven't been able to play VLC:

Code: Select all

fienix@Fienix:~$ ./run_vlc.sh
bash: ./run_vlc.sh: No such file or directory
fienix@Fienix:~$ su -
Password: 
root@Fienix:~# ./run_vlc.sh
-bash: ./run_vlc.sh: No such file or directory
Maybe I'm just getting too old to play with computers.
Then I tried something else:

Code: Select all

fienix@Fienix:~$ cd vlc-3*
fienix@Fienix:~/vlc-3.0.12-non-altivec$ ./run_vlc.sh
VLC media player 3.0.12 Vetinari (PowerPC 32-bit Non-AltiVec for X5000) (revision 3.0.12-1-0-gd147bb5e7e)
[107ded30] main libvlc error: stale plugins cache: modified /home/fienix/vlc-3.0.12-non-altivec/lib/vlc/plugins/demux/libreal_plugin.so
After several hundred of those error messages, I got

Code: Select all

[107ded30] main libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. Use 'cvlc' to use vlc without interface.
[1095d380] main playlist: playlist is empty

and a working version of VLC 3.0.12, but I hope this isn't the way it's supposed to work! Also I thought I got rid of 3.0.4 along the way, but Menu > Sound & Video still has it as its only entry.

You have done it correctly. You have two versions of VLC now.

rc6 seems just fine so far.

I was surprised at the long "6m" to download. The kernel packages usually say they'll take "2m."

Thanks a lot for testing the RC6! Great, that the new VLC also works on your X5000.
