I set up my RasPi today with the xbmchub wizard program. A couple of people in another thread have also asked which installer to use, I used the Android installer but it made the entire system slow. I urgently need a fix because everything is really slow. It was quick before the installation.
Thanks, Ill use Fresh Start, but I also want to use the Wizard to set up all the addons. Which installer should I use for my Raspberry Pi - there is Android (which I already used and made my system slow) and Linux (which I'm not sure whether to use). Which is best for my Pi? Or should I just install the addons myself to get best performance?
You can try the linux, I personally installed my add-ons manually and find this performs best.
Raspi runs LINUX based Operating Systems. Therefore you would want the LINUX version of the Wizard. I for one install everything via the wizard these days... and love it.
...but everyone should know howbto annually install a repo/add on as well
Thanks a lot Surfer and umOuch I will use fresh start and then the Linux installer, if it is still slow I'll configure plugins manually.
the linux wizard is not suitable for openelec. (it says so on the wizard), so as long as your not using openelec the linux should work, just as a side question what class of Sd card are you using. if you are on less than class 10 then that could explain why your system is slow have a look into using a usb 3 to boot into the pi, I am using this method and it is realy good for me
I have heard of people using a USB 3.0. My SD card is the official NOOBS card made by the manufacturers of the Pi, so I don't know. I guess it's a class 4 or 6. How did you set up the Pi to use a USB drive by default? That sounds like a great idea.
have a read of this http://mymediaexperience.com/raspber...-with-raspbmc/
i installed raspbmc booting through a usb 3.0, the main difference between usb and sd card is that you can overclock the pi without fear of corrupting the usb as has happened when overclocking on an SD card, there are a number of guides on youtube on how to do this so i would suggest you have a look around and use the method that is best for you
