    I said that there is a bug in XBMC 13 (the workaround are 2 lines). But XBMC and Hardware Decoding has never worked good on those cards with GNU/Linux (only with a old Kernel, xserver and a va-api wrapper)

    To tell you the truth, it hasn't froze on me in years. In fact the only time the xbmc systems go down is to add a hard drive or to apply updates.

    Edit: just checked, last xbmc crash log is from early 2010.

    What should he know about?

    I run XBMC 12 both from Windows 7, Ubuntu 12.04 and Ubuntu 13.10 and 14.04 (all from ppa). In what way does it run better under Windows 7? I don't have any problems on any of those platforms.

    I've been using XBMC on Linux since its very first Linux release. Haven't had any problems for years now. Also I'm using the official XBMC PPA for Ubuntu 12.04.

    I don't think anyone in this forum cares about broken DXVA support. Why do you run Windows on a media center pc?

    Dude, you are barking at the wrong tree, I don't have anything against Windows. I just found it odd that anyone would post his Windows problems on the Phoronix forums.
