Hi guys

Ive updated to nightlies using

ppa:team-xbmc-svn/ppa

expecting to see options for HD audio, but i dont.

I see the new services menu, but no options for HD audio like i do in the windows nightlies.

System is saying XBMC 12.0-Alpha1 Git:unknown ( compiled : apr 20 1012 )

Any ideas?


Matt

also dont seem to have the new default skin

Matt
nobody?

Matt
audio engine was merged on may 10th... your build is to old for having these options...
thats what i thought, when i do update it says its the latest version.

im doing

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install xbmc

it just says it the latest version and wont update

Matt
that's the problem with 'latest', it could mean anything and nothing at the same time.
this is what im following

http://shadower16.wordpress.com/2011/10/...nightlies/

just formatted and did a clean install of xbmc live 10.1 ( i think, the one before it was called xbmcbuntu ) followed the instructions and still ended up on the same build.

Matt

You are not pulling a nightly version but a alpha version.
They are in different locations (if available for ppa)
Matt, I am in the same boat, looking for a way to update to the master eden branch (for someone like me that isn't afraid to follow instructions but not a linux guru).

I haven't had any luck with instructions on compiling or installing that I found in the wiki or forum. I completely understand, for one they are test versions probably not really for us, more standard users. Also I know I wouldn't be too excited in the tedious and thankless task of writing guides.

Hopefully with the change to monthly test cycles known Dharma processes will be updated/communicated for eden. For the time being, I think I have pretty much given up, going to go back to Dharma or Openelec Dharma.

I know openelec has a thread with some Audio Engine builds that people compiled and put up, but I didn't have luck with those (at least for HD audio passthrough). Though it did look promising, menu sounds worked without a problem (always had had to do some sort of editing to get that to work).


EDIT: Thanks John... or nathan lol

Testing now, though my system has been knocked around a bit with various attempts and compile etc.

EDIT 2: Not working on XBMCbuntu, re-installed 11.0 from iso... At boot login, prompt, got into xbmcbuntu, and xbmc just wouldn't open. I assume because the PPA is more geared towards full linux installs. Well it was worth a try, Matt it may work for you.

XBMCbuntu ist a full Ubuntu... what did you do to update?
I tried that following:

Install 11.0 from ISO (not sure if this maters, but entered xbmc and a password when prompted during install.

From putty ssh...

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nathan-renniewaldock/xbmc-nightly
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xbmc

that's the same as me but I'm coming from 10.1 (dahma)

Looks like pulse and AE have issues... thought pulse was not supposed to be usedHuh

oh well nature of the nightly beast lol
Try to move your guisettings.xml away and see if it starts up then. No clue why it trys pulseaudio - but imho in the latest code it should be supported.
