I'm a bit o0f a newbie but have downloaded the package XBMC_Raspi_a4130c1.tgz but how do I install this? apt-get doesn't seem to have a mechanism to point to this file.

There is a FAQ section at the top f my site that walks you through it.

tar -zxf XBMC_Raspi_a4130c1.tgz

cd devel

sudo apt-get install libmicrohttpd10 libtinyxml2.6.2 libmysqlclient18 liblzo2-2 libpcrecpp0 libsdl1.2debian libhal1 libhal-storage1 libva1 libva-glx1 libyajl-dev libssh-dev libfribidi-dev


sudo dpkg -I xbmc_112-1_armhf.deb

should fix you right up.

Thanks for the prompt and courteous reply. I'm sorry I didn't see the faq on your home page but having followed your instructions it said it had

Provides: xbmc
Description: Package created with checkinstall 1.6.2
but I can't find the package. In subdir devel typing xbmc results in a "not found" message.
typing
./usr/lib/xbmc/xbmc.bin
which is the only executable I could find I get
./usr/lib/xbmc/xbmc.bin: symbol lookup error: ./usr/lib/xbmc/xbmc.bin: undefined symbol: vc_tv_get_display_state

It appears you have not updated your PI.

sudo apt-get install git-core
sudo wget http://goo.gl/1BOfJ -O /usr/bin/rpi-update && sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/rpi-update
sudo rpi-update

reboot and try again

you may also want to make sure your os up to date

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

then you should not have any issues

sudo echo "deb http://archive.mene.za.net/raspbian wheezy contrib" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mene.list
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-key 5243CDED
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xbmc
Worked like a charm for me, very thanks :D
