OSMC NFS mount

It looks like you need some systemd "magic" to successfully mount an NFS share on OSMC. Adding "x-systemd.automount,noauto" to the mount options in /etc/fstab did the trick for me.

Enable IPv6 on OSMC (wired and wireless)

Despite having read the opposite, it looks like IPv6 is disabled by default on the latest OSMC release (2015.06-1). I've tried adding a sysctl.d file to set /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/eth0/disable_ipv6 to 0, but this did not help. It worked only when I ran the command manually. By going through numerous forum posts I eventually found out that you need to use the connmanctl CLI tool:
root@osmc:~# connmanctl
connmanctl> services
*AO Wired ethernet_b827ebaabbcc_cable
connmanctl> config ethernet_b827ebaabbcc_cable --ipv6 auto preferred
connmanctl> quit
root@osmc:~#
This enables IPv6 with autoconfiguration, turns on Privacy Extensions and prefers these ephemeral addresses over the autoconfigured ones.

The same command works for wireless as well, you just need to select the appropriate interface (the service name will start with wifi_).

"help" will display basic usage info.

If for some reason you would like to disable IPv6, the command would be "config ... --ipv6 off".

Using a Raspberry Pi running raspbmc to sync Fitbit One with galileo (fitbit linux sync)

(it should work with any other Debian-based Raspberry Pi distribution and all newer Fitbit devices that use BLE)
sudo -i
apt-get update
apt-get install python-pip
pip install galileo
galileo

You can then use cron or a simple shell script to periodically run galileo.

raspbmc - getting rid of iptables

I don't need a firewall on my Raspberry PI which runs XMBC (raspbmc distribution) - it's in a dedicated subnet behind a firewall. Furthermore, there are several reports of iptables having an impact on the performance of network playback, causing buffering issues (although I didn't do any benchmark myself).

I modified /etc/network/if-up.d/secure-rmc by adding "exit 0" right at the beginning like this:
#!/bin/bash

exit 0

dec_to_bin() {
...

And then I ran:
apt-get remove iptables

This was followed by a reboot.

nb: the secure-rmc file appears to be a raspbmc addition, and it could probably just be deleted instead.
