samba: build libsmbclient as shared lib
avahi/samba: When samba is built with avahi support the server name is advertised in UPPERCASE as samba forces this when setting-up avahi via dbus. If we disable avahi support in samba and include a samba.service file with avahi the hostname is correctly advertised as the user entered it; e.g. OpenELEC not OPENELEC ..we can also use a tweaked samba.service so Mac users with an AppleTV see the AppleTV icon in Finder.app instead of a generic server icon. this fixes #2282
Mount /var as tmpfs and limit the use of tmpfs
util-linux: use blocksize=1MB for creating the swapfile
OpenELEC 3.0 is recommended for new installations, and as an upgrade to existing OpenELEC 2.0 installs. However, please note that OpenELEC 2.0 will not automatically update to 3.0. This is a deliberate move as we have observed a small number of issues with Frodo updating Eden databases; we want the timing of an upgrade to be something you choose (i.e. after you made a backup of your Eden configuration). Please ugrade to OpenELEC 3.0 using the manual update process: http://wiki.openelec.tv/index.php?title=HOW-TO:Updating_to_OpenELEC_3.0
OpenELEC 3.0 will be the penultimate release for ION 32-bit and Intel 32-bit users. Support for these images will cease with the OpenELEC 3.2 or 4.0 release. If you are currently using one of these builds the correct migration path is:
ION i386 (with 32-bit capable hardware) => Generic i386
ION i386 (with 64-bit capable hardware) => ION x86_64
Since update to v3 I've been having problem with a lot of my flash videos (low-res flv and mp4). They used to work perfectly, but now every 10-30sec audio disappears for 2-5sec.
I tried playing them from NAS and from local usb drive. From usb it's better, but the problem is still there, so it's not network problem. I overclocked the raspberry to 900MHz and even less audio glitches. Audio is gone only very rarely. Sometimes slightly warped sound.
Looks like recent update messed up something with system performance, or performance of handling some of the codecs.
Hope this will be fixed in one of next updates.
