Re: Raspbian, xbmc and ssh problem

Putting XBMC into the background by appending"&" to your command should prevent this, e.g.:

Code: Select all

xbmc-standalone &
If that doesn't work try using "nohup":

Code: Select all

nohup xbmc-standalone

Re: XBMC under Wheezy

There are a couple ways to do this, most of which are listed on this page: http://elinux.org/RPi_XBMC.

Re: XBMC not starting properly

However, any time I try to run XBMC using "sudo XBMC", the client launches telling me I'm missing the proper OpenGL drivers and gives me a 10 second countdown before it exits. Are you trying to start XBMC within an X session (i.e. the graphical desktop)? If so, this is your problem. XBMC accesses t...

Re: XBMC - Vidoe doesn't show, command line visible

I ran into problems running XBMC as the pi user. The keyboard wouldn't work when I was prompted to enter username and password. Non-root users don't have access to input devices. To address this, create a new group, add the pi user to it, and setup some udev rules to grant the appropriate ownership...

Re: XBMC on raspbian

Do I have to uninstall it before using his precompiled version (if yes - how?) or can I have them both on my raspberry? The above instructions install XBMC to the same location that standard packages do, so you should remove it first. There's no easy way to remove manually installed software howeve...

Re: Debian packages for xbmc-rbp

It should be there now. Thanks, it installs now. It didn't work initially -- I'd execute xbmc-rbp as root on a VT and xbmc.bin would be running, but XBMC wasn't displayed on the screen (the VT remained). The last log message in xbmc.log was this: 13:02:15 T:1102598144 NOTICE: CWinEGLPlatformRaspber...

Re: Debian packages for xbmc-rbp

I'm glad to see that someone has actually packaged this properly :-) Your prebuilt package of xbmc-rbp seems to be an older version however (11.0~git20120707.9e56f42 vs 11.0~git20120715.2acdae7-2) and so it isn't installable with the xbmc-rbp-bin package. Would you mind uploading the newer version o...
