Lightbulb  [XBMC-LIVE][HOW-TO] Install nightly to get Alaska Revisited working
Post: #1
Script originaly from here - check the original post guidance and references

I really wanted the new Alaska skin on my Zotac Mag running linux but i couldn't have it since it was an xbmc-live install.
It took some looking around but i finally found out how to compile the nightly xbmc from git source.

[NOTE] The default installation comes with the horrible vim-tiny installation, the first thing i did was upgrade vim so i can edit my files in peace. Install vim-nox using the following commands
Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vim-nox

- Get root
Code:
sudo su -

- Create /home/xbmc/XBMC-build_git.sh
Code:
vi /home/xbmc/XBMC-build_git.sh

- Copy this into script
Code:
# Script to compile xbmc from source
# Created by boykster @ http://forum.xbmc.org/showpost.php?p=738445&postcount=36
#!/bin/bash
NUMPARAMS=1

if [ $# -lt "$NUMPARAMS" ]
then
    echo
    echo "Usage: $0 <upgrade / refresh>"
    echo
    echo "-- upgrade = full setup (setup GIT, build environment, etc)"
    echo "-- refresh = update existing XBMC GIT COMPILE to latest version"
    echo
else

S1="upgrade"
S2="refresh"

    if [ $1 = $S1 ]
    then
        stop xbmc-live
        cp /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list-backup
        add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc-svn/ppa
        echo deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/team-xbmc-svn/ppa/ubuntu lucid main >> /etc/apt/sources.list
        echo deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/team-xbmc-svn/ppa/ubuntu lucid main >> /etc/apt/sources.list

        apt-get build-dep xbmc -y
        cp /etc/apt/sources.list-backup /etc/apt/sources.list
        rm -r -f /etc/apt/sources.list-backup
        mkdir ~/setup
        cd $HOME/setup
        git clone git://github.com/xbmc/xbmc.git
        cd $HOME/setup/xbmc
        ./bootstrap; ./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-vdpau --disable-pulse ; make -j4
        make install prefix=/usr
        start xbmc-live

    else     if [ $1 = $S2 ]
        then
            stop xbmc-live
            cd $HOME/setup/xbmc
            git pull --rebase
            make distclean ; ./bootstrap ; ./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-vdpau --disable-pulse ; make -j4
            make install prefix=/usr
            start xbmc-live
        else
                echo
                echo "Usage: $0 <upgrade / update>"
                echo
                echo "-- upgrade = full setup (setup GIT, build environment, etc)"
                echo "-- refresh = update existing XBMC GIT COMPILE to latest version"
                echo
        fi
    fi

fi

- Run script
Code:
sh /home/xbmc/XBMC_build_git.sh upgrade

- Wait... It takes approximately an hour to complete the first time around, once it's done it will restart xbmc live and you will have the latest nightly!

- Install Alaska Wink

This script was created by boykster in this post. I'm just adding it here for easy access since i know a lot of people here want to try out the Alaska Revisited goodness.

[NOTE] Future builds can be compiled by using the same script with the refresh option since you would already have all the git stuff installed
Code:
sh /home/xbmc/XBMC_build_git.sh refresh

Hi there, thanks for writing this script. However, it stops part way through and complains that there's no rule to make it install. Any ideas?

Thanks

I want to try this but don't want to destroy my perfectly functioning XBMC Live install.

Does this work, above post says no...

Can I install/run all of the above to a USB drive to preserve my current XBMC Live install? If so, what changes do I need?

Thanks for any advice, I want the newer skins! Smile

and btw nano doesnt require so much messing around specially to peeps who have no idea about linux

so that everyone knows thers no issues building from git sometimes it happens that main trunk gets screwed up thats why my ppas for nightlies stoped

Interesting - sorry you're having trouble with the script. Are you running it as root (not sudo, but actually as root after doing a sudo su -)?

What do you see in the $HOME/setup directory? It sounds like the build failed, and there's nothing built to install....

I was able to use my script to build XBMC this morning; make install worked as well, so I'm not sure what errors others are getting. Make sure you are running the script as root, not just with sudo. Copying the files at the end requires root on most systems

Actually, the only piece of the instructions I couldn't follow was "- Copy this into script" - I didn't know how to do that. I'm fairly new to Linux and I couldn't work out how to save the script once i'd pasted the code into it. So I created the script in notepad and copied it over.

Can you tell me how to save the script once it's created? Maybe something's getting lost in notepad?

thanks

EDIT: Okay, just figured it out - press Esc then type :wq to save.

EDIT: Ran the script again but it still didn't work Sad

configure: error: Could not find a required library. Please see the README for your platform.
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
make: *** No rule to make target `install'. Stop.
xbmc-live start/running, process 29236

Any ideas?

Thanks

Don't use notepad.

To make a script it is quite simple.

First download SSH for your windows pc.
Or use the terminal in Ubuntu for example: ssh -p 22 username@ip
You can also use nano.
so:

sudo nano /home/xbmc/XBMC-build_git.sh

copy/past the code and hit ctrl+O to save.

then follow the rest of the steps.

+1 - this is how I do it; I use nano as a lightweight editor.

@Rumik - it sounds like the script just isn't running properly for you - you can download it already turned into a script from my post here:

http://forum.xbmc.org/showpost.php?p=738...stcount=36

just follow the directions there.

Also, what distro are you using? I didn't test the script on any distro other than LIVE installed to a drive - other distros may be different and need some tweaking.

boyskters script was part of a combined effort, please read original post. where the topic starter should have posted his information, because of below info.

yes look at commit

https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/commit/6948...f879b3ce46

ppl cant build doesn't mean its script or how-to compile instructions.

ppl assume way too much and dont post properly informed posts, this cause users to get more confused. just reading this whole topic makes me cringe.

Please dont litter forums with unnecessary posts just because xbmc needs to be a particular version for a particular skin to work, confuses ppl like rumik and t2ffn cause they dont know linux had they read the original post the concerns about
Quote:"I dont want to destroy a perfectly good xbmc install
and other comments rae answered and sorted on original post.
This entire topic and issues could have been avoided by proper informed posting, and why building breaks sometimes in trunk.

As the git commit shows above when you cant compile goto IRC and ask if trunk is building ok 9/10 times if building in Linux is broken bet is developers know about it. if they going to fix it or not idk.

As for credit due for original poster please read the whole post where script is and follow up there.

Yeah, i have no idea what you just said.

Boykster - thanks for the file, but I tried it and I'm still getting the same problem. I'm running 10.1 Live.

Anyone have any other ideas about how I could get this working?

Thanks
