Topic says all.

I have set up new PPAs to make it easier to find where they are.
The information is available on:
https://launchpad.net/~team-xbmc#ppas

There is one PPA for HARDY, INTREPID and JAUNTY.
On the PPA " PPA for XBMC for Linux " you will have tests packages while the others have only official released packages.

Have fun

Am I right in assuming that updating SVN will have all of these new features + what ever is released past this point?

thx man

and a question Smile

What exactly is Babylon Beta 1? Is this one of the SVN releases (which one)?
Or this is separate branch where devs are fixing bugs and adding "stable" features ?

I am compiling XBMC from SVN at least twice a week so I was wondering what is the difference here

thx again to the whole XBMC team Big Grin

Hi!

I'm a bit new to new to this app but I've had it running on this laptop for a while.
Xubuntu 8.10 + XMBC 8.10
Now I've upgraded to Xubuntu 9.04 + XBMC 9.04 beta 1

I can not start xbmc. I get
10:39:53 T:3065018224 M:321019904 ERROR: (pthread_mutex_destroy(&m_mutex)): [XCriticalSection.cpp:86] 16
in the log.

Is there something I can do?

Regards
Blackbird

Currently yes. In fact that should be always true.

Babylon is the code name of release 9.04. When we release an alpha or beta, we make a tag for it and we build the packages upon this tag code level

uomiarz Wrote:Or this is separate branch where devs are fixing bugs and adding "stable" features ?

There were two choice on the release management.
1. we could decide never to stop features development. In which case Babylon should be a branch for the Babylon release and we would have stabilized the branch while stopping the addition of New feature to it. So we would have tagged the branch for alpha, beta RC, stable

2. we could decide to stop development of new feature when when we want to release a version and focus on the stability of it. So no need to branch but no addition of new features.

We made the second choice for the moment. This is why, taking the SVN code will be more or less the same as taking the tag code.

You should open a bug report on our Trac system :
http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=HOW...Bug_Report

Edit: there is already a ticket opened on this issue: http://xbmc.org/ticket/6382 . You can maybe leave a comment on it.

I've noticed that the jaunty Babylon beta 1 xbmc-common package has a dependency on libcurl4-openssl-dev.

Is that required? Having the dependency on the development library is causing aptitude to want to install a bunch of other development libraries, and want to install gcc.

This doesn't seem like it should be required for the runtime for an HTPC. Should this be a dependency for a runtime library instead?

Not possible right now as libcurl.so is only available in devel packages. See http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?search...y&arch=any

I don't understand, can you clarify what you mean when you say:
Quote:There is one PPA for HARDY, INTREPID and JAUNTY.
On the PPA " PPA for XBMC for Linux " you will have tests packages while the others have only official released packages.

Do you mean the old PPA (1024R/D7FAE680 OpenPGP key) will now have only stable stuff, and this new PPA (1024R/91E7EE5E OpenPGP key) will have only test stuff? I am learning Linux, so excuse me, I plan to install 9.04 x86_64 full this weekend, with the latest test build of XBMC, so I can experiment. Also what about the SVN?

nvm, I went to XBMC PPA https://launchpad.net/~team-xbmc home, like you pointed out, and now all is clear.

reading must be magical or something, it's how i find all da anwsers!

Sure, but that link is only necessary for building things that use libcurl, not at runtime. The runtime link is libcurl.so.4, which is what xbmc.bin gets linked to anyway:

carl@orpheum:/tmp/test/files/usr/share/xbmc$ ldd xbmc.bin |grep curl
libcurl.so.4 => /usr/lib/libcurl.so.4 (0x00007f7e59e1a000)

The runtime libcurl.so.4 seems to be in libcurl3.

Just updated source to rev 19693. This gives problems when compiling because of unreconized file formats:

xbmc/cores/dvdplayer/
DVDPlayer.a
dvdplayer

I asume the problem is in the source, because my previous source compiles gave no problems. By the way, whats the rev nummer of the as beta 1 tagged code?


Looked in svn the revision of the beta 1 is: 19573


Edit:

For future reference, just ran ./configure another time and this also gave me dvd related errors. Just restarted my system and the problem was gone.

@carlstreeter: we already tried this but it never worked correctly (building against the dev package and use the runtime one at runtime). I don't remember the details though ...
Maybe you should ask on the development forum.
