Thats what I was afraid of.  I'm going to play around some more and see what happens

Im thinking, depending on whats produced when the compile has finished it may be able to be lifted and dropped onto either the debian or arch linux distros that are available.

@gavinlew

I actually thought that this was an OS in itself. I.e. write the compiled work to another SD card and boot straight into XBMC.

Hi,

I started building this forenoon and had to fix a couple minor problems but now its done.

Build is resulting in 2 files in target directory:

7,8M Apr 24 15:24 OpenELEC-RPi.arm-devel-20120424131113-r10695.kernel

80M Apr 24 15:24 OpenELEC-RPi.arm-devel-20120424131113-r10695.system

I can share those files, if youre interested, but im kinda stucked, what to do now…

Cheers,

Henrik

I followed the directions from here http://wiki.openelec.tv/index......ingle_boot

But that didn't work, now I'm running Debian and trying to install it as an application

Thanks! For me it seemes like the whole boatloader thing is missing in this wiki article - I will try to setup the partition scheme an install grub for telling raspi weher to find the kernel - probably thats the wrong way, but I dont know how boatloading for raspi is working and its worth a try

Also I setup a wiki page at elinux for collecting all usefull information: http://elinux.org/Rpi_openELEC

The Pi will still need the small FAT partiton to read the kernel and point it to another partition?

Here are the files from the build.

http://www.morganelayne.com/ra.....pberry_pi/

xbmc-rpi-d8a02e0.zip contains the entire directory

target.zip contains the kernel and system files

Thanks. Would you be able to put it on somewhere like a Dropbox shared folder though? With everyone wanting to get their hands on this, your webserver will take a hammering!

I don't have a dropbox.  My host, Hostgator, claims to have unlimited bandwidth, guess we will see what happens.

I have my .kernel and .system files now. What is the step after the compile is done?

So we just need to C&P over the OS system files with the first larger zip then over right the kernel with the second?

Hi,

No not as easy as this - we need some form of bootloader which im hoping can be modified from the debian image - im on my way home so will be working on this later this evening.

Good lad Can you then share how you did this as looking to learn (not just grab and run )

Breaking News! Internet provider Hostgator just said it's going through the worst DDOS attack in history and all servers have been brought to their knees. Hostgater claims the attack is carried out by anonymous hackers possibly trying to install a hostile OS called 'OpenELEC' on their servers. Interpol is in the process of identifying the anonymous hackers by their IP addresses, that they curiously not tried to hide. Worldwide arrests will follow shortly.

Thanks. I downloaded cvtj97's files with a view to upload them to my Dropbox, but I've got 10 meg down and 1.2 meg up!

you are sure it comes from zlib and you pasted configure.log from zlib? it dont matches with the files here (also configure of zlib has much more less then 4000 lines)?
The error comes from here:

/home/dc4/raspberry/OpenELEC.tv/build.OpenELEC-RPi.arm-devel/gcc-4.7.0/objdir-gcc-core

(the forum sometimes inserts whatever is in my copy/paste buffer when I press post, which is why the zlib line was there. Done it several times....)

Literally just finished building this myself on Ubuntu. Can't wait to find out how to get it up and running.
