XBMC, Take two

So, i decided to wait with Dharma, and take another shot at the current XBMC live

Install XBMC Live

apt-get install vim python-software-properties pkg-config
add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc-svn/ppa
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get dist-upgrade
apt-get install linux-generic linux-headers-generic linux-image-generic xbmc xbmc-bin xbmc-data xbmc-live xbmc-skin-confluence xbmc-standalone
chmod +x

Nvidia ION and XBMC Dharma

So, my XBMC started acting up, so I figured I could reinstall. But of course that meant sitting all night trying to do it in the most complicated way ever. The ppa-s for xbmc-svn devs are down atm, soo:

  1. Installing Ubuntu Mini (10.4 Lucid), base system with openssh
  2. Installing subversion
  3. Grabbing the latest svn of the Dharma branch of XBMC
  4. Installing a lot of deps.
  5. Creating a symlink to make opengl dev libs work
  6. Installing xbmc-live script from a ppa

And afterwards I just noticed XBMCFreak has a new livecd compiled. Figures.
