Full Version: Problem upgrading from 12.2 on a headless debian machine

First of all this is a great project!

Now to my problem.
I'm running xbmc 12.2 from the deb-multimedia repository on debian wheezy stable. The system is headless and I'm using the init script which is posted in this wiki article under ยง4.3. I wanted to upgrade to your current build, but the installation procedure seems not to overwrite the old files correctly. Because even after I removed the original xbmc package the script kept starting xbmc 12.2 and not the correct version, should be v13 alpha 7 right? Although xbmc keeps starting it is causing a very high system load even in idle state, which in my experience is an indicator that something is not working as intended.
Do I need to change a path in the script or is there ab bigger problem with my setup?
Here is a log of the current xbmc startup, please let me know more information is needed.
Thanks in advance!
You may need to specify a different prefix while configuring:

Code:
./configure --prefix=/usr

It defaults to /usr/local/ whereas the package you installed defaults to /usr/ from what the log shows:

Code:
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/xbmc

Along with an old build date:

Code:
Built on Jun 10 2013

Did you removed the previous packages you installed?

Have you checked to see if the path /usr/local/lib/xbmc exists and if the binary xbmc.bin was installed there instead?
Looks like that was the problem, did a new build with the config and it seems to have overwritten the old files, which indeed were in /us.
But now xbmc is not starting at all, might be a problem with the init script, since xbmc is not even generating a new log file. I will look into that later today.

Make sure you did a make clean;make distclean before you reconfigured and rebuilt to be safe
Thanks! Now it's working. Addons aren't really working, but I think I can fix that myself. I will post a log if not.
