xbmc on my htpc has a small but annoying bug: it freezes when opening the first video-file (not music or pictures or streams). There is no error-msg at all, it just shows the little circle "loading file" for some secs and then xbmc freezes. i switch to a different VT, restart xbmc and everything runs fine.
the system is an up-to-date ~amd64; xbmc is started by an initscript executing startx as a user with its .xinitrc (which also lauches devmon for automount with ck-launch-session).
does anybody have any clues how to make it run with the first file?
THX!

Just a guess, but is your media on the same physical disk ?
Since if it is not, it can be that specific disk is still in hybernate/sleep mode?

i thought about this too, since the all the media-files are on a disk mounted in subdir of the xbmc-user's homedir (3TB btrfs), but this happens right after booting and the system is never in sleep/suspend; it's either on or off - so no, i cannot imagine this is the reason.

Mmm indeed, just after boot it would be unlikely that the disk sleeps or is in hybernation (allthough the disk might be spinned down after some time by itself without the entire system sleeping; One way to make sure the disk is awake is to start the system, use a terminal to 'cd'/go to the disk in question and wake it up, and then open a file on that disk using xbmc and see what happens.)


You say the system freezes: How long does it freeze? Or does it crash ? ( maybe get the status before restaring?).
If it crashed, look at the crashlog ( in the xbmc-users homedir?).
