Anyone interested in xbmc git .debs ?

Hey guys I've spend a few days working through the missing dependencies and various fixes to make xbmc compile from git. Finally got there :D Anyway just finished packing up some test packages. Would anyone be interested in trying them ?

The packages are built from the latest git.
Patched with select patches from xbian & raspbmc.
Built with the latest version of rasbian. taglib, libcec and libdvdcss, jdk etc. (.deb's included).
Added projectm (not sure if this works. I think raspbmc removed it due to it being to labor intensive.)

Configured as follows ..

Code: Select all

./configure --prefix=/usr --build=arm-linux-gnueabihf --host=arm-linux-gnueabihf --target=arm-linux-gnueabihf --enable-libusb enable-gles --disable-sdl --disable-x11 --disable-xrandr --disable-openmax --enable-optical-drive --enable-libbluray --enable-dvdcss --disable-joystick--enable-libafpclient --disable-debug --disable-crystalhd --disable-vtbdecoder --disable-vaapi --disable-vdpau --enable-pulse  --with-platform=raspberry-pi --enable-optimizations --enable-libcec --enable-player=omxplayer -C
Output of configure

atm they are just packed up with checkinstall. Mail me for source.

I'll upload them and add links here at some point today. I'm not 100% sure on what dependencies you will need to make this work as I put so many on to get it to compile I need to go through my history and find everything needed. I'm 99% sure it's just the usual.

Here are the links as promised. Sorry it took so long I had to fix a couple of things for it to play nice with checkinstall.


xbmc binaries are located @ /opt/xbmc-bcm/xbmc-bin/bin.

I am.

So taking a fresh raspian image, update it to the latest version, update firmware, install depedencies and download and install from git should get me a working XBMC?

Got a spare Pi and a 8 GB card so will try and install. Will it be possible (in the near future?) to update XBMC just by using the apt-get update/upgrade route?

Moved this over to the raspbian section of this forum. Could I ask a moderator to delete thanks.

@ charliesroot

I wasn't planning to create a repository for these as there seem to be a lot of guys working on xbmc for native support for raspbian. For now I'll just update the links here, but if many people like them I can tidy them up and host a repository. I created these packages so I could select patches from all over the ether and have a nice stable, fast build on my media center.

But yes you can download my packages, install them and away you go.

Here's a link to the new thread. ... 66&t=30789
