Re: How to install XBMC on LXDE

Read this: http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Installing_XBMC_for_Linux Or if you don't want the hassle, just download OpenELEC. As for installing it on a Pi, your best bet would be to download Raspbmc or OpenELEC. Everything is set up for you, just write the image to the SD card, plug in, and pla...

Wow thanks! Do you need any special kernel/distro? Or would it work with just the binary?

Re: Using Pi to run a shop window slideshow

Re: How to download/install xbmc?

1. In your own words, it's software for making the Raspberry into a sort of media center. :D
2. There's two variants of XBMC: OpenELEC and Raspbmc. Search the forums. You just install it like any other distro.

Re: OS X 10.4/6

But I am fairly sure you can get the source code for OS X anyway from Apple if you're a developer with them and you have paid your 100 dollars to apple this year for developing OS X and it's software.

There are two media OS right now: OpenELEC and Raspbmc. Both of them kind of work, but are still in development. Try both and see what you like.

config.txt is only read at boot, so you'll need to change it, then reboot before the settings take place.

No. The Pi generally can't power anything more than a keyboard or mouse. You'll need a powered hub.
