BETA2 : No screensaver working (besides dim)
Can someone please check? The only screensaver which is working for me is DIM.
Every other screensaver after 30-40 second just crashes to CLI or does nothing..
Thanks!

RE: BETA2 : No screensaver working (besides dim)
I'm using the black screen option.. Don't know if this is actually a real screensaver but at least it's working fine except I would love to automatically disconnect the HDMI on idle so the monitor can go into real standy and then auto-reconnect the HDMI when I press a button as my HTPC does. It's just a dream - maybe it isn't even possible on the RPi

RPi 1 Model B & RPi 2

The "Blank", "Dim" and "None" are the only ones that work with the RPi. The other exception is "Clock" available in the Xbian repository.

Solar Winds, Plasma and Euphoria will not work on the RPi as they require X windows.

Thanks for the reply Iridium
If I remember correctly, those were not in previous relases.. and if they can't work, it would be better not to have them in the distro in the first place IMHO..

Thanks!

They were in previous releases. They are there because they are default XBMC not Xbian.

exactly, these options are built in by default by XBMC

Somehow I was sure they were not in Alpha 5, but since I don't have A5 images anymore, I think you're right and I must remember it wrong..

Yes all three will not work with RPI.. Even I have tried without any success.

RE: BETA2 : No screensaver working (besides dim)
@all

the fancy screensaver expect full OpenGL support from driver, not just GLES. they are not supposed to be compiled at all but looks like there is a bug in Makefiles in XBMC somewhere because those sceensavers (RSXS) really require X11 system - and we compile with --disable-x11.

but it is the same for RaspBMC - I have the feeling OE is removing them from sources before compile.

RE: BETA2 : No screensaver working (besides dim)
I'm just testing the new build system on XBMC so will try to remove ./xbmc/screensaver/rsxs as part of standard compile workflow.
