Re: Ubuntu / Xubuntu for the O2 Joggler.

OK no problem, I can tell you that it works on an (c8? c10?) transcend 8gb microsd mounted in one of those tiny microsd to usb converters.

I'll try some other USB sticks over the next few days ... just squeezing things into the pre-xmas rush so I may be a bit delayed.

Re: Ubuntu / Xubuntu for the O2 Joggler.

I go into detail about the filesystems on the downloads page. I use ext4. Unfortunately without some hardware that works with 1.3 but not 1.4 I will be unable to really fix it. I can only think it is one of the kernel changes, but hard to fix without having something to test on. Did you try some ot...

Re: Ubuntu / Xubuntu for the O2 Joggler.

Hi Buzz
Some more info ... I'm up and running right-first-time on version 1.3 of xubuntu using f2fs (is this the best fs, or better sticking to ext4 on a Sandisk USB3?).

So I do think it's likely to be something to do with v1.4 that is causing some of our devices to fail to boot....

Re: Ubuntu / Xubuntu for the O2 Joggler.

I moved your post as this is a more suitable thread for discussion of problems with Xubuntu on O2 Joggler - the other thread is for discussing USB sticks. Did you compare the md5sum of the downloaded image with the values on the download page ? Perhaps you can detail your setup and how you wrote th...

Re: Best USB stick for Joggler?

I'm just trying the December 2015 xubuntu ony a Sandisk 32G Ultra USB3 - but I get the "dropping to shell" message after it goes most of the way through booting.

Can I ask what images people have successfully run on these sticks, and with what FS? I tried using ext4 ...

Re: Joggler KitKat 4.4.2 beta (24/3/14)

I think I know the answer, but there aren't any dual boot systems are there, to allow choice of XBMC (perhaps under Buzz's linux) or Android?

Re: Joggler KitKat 4.4.2 beta (24/3/14)

Can I just clarify that, ignoring youtube, there is still no way to play video (whether files or streaming from iplayer) on the joggler's display itself, either under kitkat or under ICS? My understanding from this thread is that the joggler can initiate a chromecast video to play back elsewhere, bu...

Re: Best USB stick for Joggler?

I have my transcend stick in one of those tiny microsd to usb converters, about the same size or less than the sandisk ultrafit. So it's already nearly invisible, and I find android pretty fast, which means I'm not sure there's so much for me to gain. If I were still trying to run xbmc or xubuntu th...

Re: Best USB stick for Joggler?

Are people still happy with their SanDisk Ultra Fits? I'm running Android on a Transcend 8Gb class 6 microsd, and wondered if I'd see much of an improvement in responsiveness if I went for the USB3 stick? I know the stick is a lot faster, but with the Joggler being USB2 and limiting throughput, and ...

Has anyone had issues with radio playback stuttering occasionally, particularly when the joggler is under heavier load but also when idle?

Re: [RELEASE] XBMC for O2 Joggler

OK, I've found the cause of the "dropping" problem when using the released Frodo (I don't know about the test Frodo green screen). It is because my FTP device was not streaming fast enough - once I put the topfield into turbo FTP mode, it streamed fine. So Frodo release works for me and is very stab...

Re: [RELEASE] XBMC for O2 Joggler

If I use the very latest "test" build, the video performance changes. Instead of cutting out after a few seconds, the video screen keeps flickering green.

I am trying to stream a "rec" file (transport stream) from a topfield PVR via a remote ftp server on my LAN.

Re: [RELEASE] XBMC for O2 Joggler

I had problems with the 0.9 release as provided - it was a little slow and kept crashing when selecting menu items, occasionally. I release that I am in a minority and, probably like ilovemyjoggler, this is peculiar to my particular joggler setup. Also like ilovemyjoggler, following the advice to do...

Re: new Android 2.2.2 Mijuu Build 1.2.3

I've worked out how I nobbled my wifi so it would never start on boot- it seems to me if you EVER click on airplane mode, then your image is changed such that wifi mode will never start without manual intervention. For em at least. Solution for me is to wipe the DATA image and start again (not as pa...

Is it true to say though that 1.2.4 can't be used with external audio, without crackling etc?

Not tried it yet but this looks like a really nice build, thanks for putting the effort in. The Joggler is becoming a really great gadget now!

Is there still a crackling noise from external speakers?
