paaland, XBMC is run outside of X and is independent of its configuration. You shouldn't start X before starting XBMC (I know, because I made this mistake myself). If your /boot/config.txt is empty, but default you should have a 16bit color depth.paaland wrote:The building went fine, and took about 12 hours, but when I try to start xbmc all I get is a message box that says I need to run with color depth of at least 16 bits. How can I change the color depth in xwindows on Raspbian?
What I suspect is that your xbmc.bin file is linked against the wrong libEGL.so and libGLESv2.so libraries.
You can try one of the following commands to see what libraries your xbmc.bin is linked against:
Code: Select all
ldd /usr/lib/xbmc/xbmc.bin | grep libEGL ldd /usr/lib/xbmc/xbmc.bin | grep libGLESv2
Some of this is a bit difficult to debug in the forums. If you catch up to me in the #raspbian IRC channel I'll do what I can to help speed you through these issues as you have already done the hard part of getting the build done. If you want to keep it in the forum, I'll do the best I can to help you here as well.
