Good work adapting those scripts! I already considered adapting the runXBMC.sh script myself to solve the shutdown 'problem' I mentioned and also to make an exit of XBMC possible. Your input is surely useful in this!
By the way, Yesterday I went on installing the XBMCLive CD to the harddisk after all. I had too much problems with Ubuntu Jaunty adapted to XBMCLive, most notably my SPDIF out not working. And it seems XBMCLive still has a dramatic boot time improvement above an ubuntuminimal-to-xbmcbuntu.
To my disappointment, last morning I lost spdif in this setup, too (stupidly after adapting xorg.conf to add some tv output options, which have completely nothing to do with sound
). But OK, this is off-topic and has nothing to do with xbmclive
... I guess, still digging through the numerous posts about XBMC with spdif and linux sound trouble in general
Maybe some of you (team-xmbc?) also know the answer to the following I encountered...
In the ubuntuminimal-to-xbmcbuntu setup, when I called the shutdown dialog of XBMC, I only had the options to shutdown the system, info and the warm-restart xbmc. Right after installing xbmclive cd, I also had options to reboot the whole system and to put it asleep. But after an apt-upgrade to keep up with packages, the sleep and reboot options disappeared. How would I get these back?
Let's hope L.capriotti and other xbmclive maintainers will be able to make the runXBMC scripts some more robust with input from this thread
. But they already have done a tremendous job anyway
