Raspbian with XBMC image download

Sat Jul 21, 2012 6:37 pm

For everyone looking for a Raspbian image with XBMC installed, you can download mine.

http://raspberrypi.lyramic.com/files/ra ... -07-21.zip

It's the pisces r3 image with XBMC build from source (15 alpha 4)
Unfortunately it's a 8Gb image, i don't have a smaller one.
Everything is running smooth and faster than ever.
The pi is running at 900Mhz, no overvolting.

The image boots right into the desktop, you can launch the mediacenter with the icon there, or change the /etc/profile file.

Have fun!

If network/internet is not working, delete all lines in file '/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules'
and reboot. This is because your network card is on another address than the pi this image was built on.

Hi, I've been looking for an image like yours.. Sadly my SD card is only 4GB

Is there a way to resize your image to fit on a 4GB card?

Hi,

I'm getting the error: 'Unable to mount root fs on block (179-3)'. I'm a complete beginner so not sure if I've overlooked something, would appreciate any help!

Thanks.

Thanks for the image. It works pretty good for me.
The only problem is that I can't exit XBMC. It always restarts.

Seems easy to overlook.

Hi Thanks for this image,

I had the internet problem, but after deleting the things you mentioned it worked smoothly.

But how can i change the overscan settings?
I have blck boarders around the screen, even if my tv says it gets a 1080p signal.
The monitor settings applications speaks about something less (1075xsomething)

Any idea?

And how can i autostart xbmc?

To remove the black borders on your TV, add the folowing line to the /boot/config.txt file using leafpad:

disable_overscan=1

I made this image to have a full operating system and still be able to run XBMC. If you only want to use the pi as mediaplayer you can download an image from http://openelec.thestateofme.com/. OpenELEC is much lighter and smaller for that purpose.

Hi,
Is this based on the squeeze or wheezy version?
Is it possible to start xbmc as standalone?
Have you/would you mind to create a guide how to compile XBMC from source?
Are there any license issues using this image? or does the standard XBMC license apply.

Best regards,
Johan

Athmo,

What brand, speed etc SD card did you use? I tried my 8gb card but it was slightly too small for your image.

Thanks

OS = raspbian, a wheezy fork.
To start xbmc at boot you can try editing the /etc/profile file and replace 'startx' with xbmc.
To compile XBMC from source i just used this guide: http://www.raspbian.org/RaspbianXBMC
There's no special licensing on this image, other than the software used.

Does anyone else have an issue exiting XBMC? My Pi just hangs completely and I have to reboot.

I installed this to a 16 GB Class 4 SanDisk OEM SDHC card. When it boots, I get to a nice colored screen and then it freezes. I can browse this SD card's file system using a card reader on Ubuntu PC Linux, so I don't outright suspect corruption, but... any tips or thoughts?
