Full Version: upgrade from beta 1 to beta 3
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I seem to be having a brain-fart. I can't get my live install to upgrade from Frodo Beta 1 to beta 3. I've run the following:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo reboot.

Once the reboot is complete I hit INFO on my remote and I'm still at Beta 1.

Can anyone help? I've repeated this process a couple of times.

Thanks.
Yes this is what your missing.

Code:
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties pkg-config
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/unstable
apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xbmc

After that you can "fart" away.
Without that your stuck on repeating commands that would only work fro any system upgrades if any available.

I followed this and ended up moving beyond Beta 3 and onto RC1.

Question, will these steps work updating xbmcbuntu xbmc from 11.0 eden to 12.0 RC1 Frodo? Not quite the most Linux knowledgeable(Windows guy using Linux). Thank you.
Yes but there may be issues that you need to look at since Frodo has so many features and settings that changed.

so would it be suggested to do a fresh install of xbmcbuntu with V12 Frodo? The only issue I have with this, I spent several hours trying to get my remote control to power on and power off my machine and I really don't want to have to go through that pain again. Thanks.
Then I suggest you backup your install or bite the bullet, either way backup. I cant tell you what to do, only advise you on what could be done and what the risks are.

uNi:

does your "Minimal Ubuntu install + XBMC -Script" install the latest version of Frodo?

Its not "mine" its bram77 but yes its installs whatever the last version from Fernetmenta is, or if the ppa is edited whatever you want.

thanks!
