I figured this out. Apparently I did not have permissions as the current user to change the files. I opened the files as root and allowed my normal user account to change the permission and then it was fine.

This seems to be an open bug in Ubuntu apparently. Glad the fix worked though Smile
I get the same problem as onesojourner. When I add the packages (in Software Sources - Third-Party Software), click Close and Reload I get the error message:
"W: GPG error: http://ppa.launchpad.net intrepid Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 43C0AFF0D7FAE680".

Since I'm completely new to Linux, Ubuntu and XBMC I didn't really understand what and how onesojourner did to fix it. Running Intrepid and using intrepid links for packages..)

(I did a quick test with intrepid/xbmc same versions as now a few weeks ago and it worked, so I've put together a dedicated HTPC now.)

All help appreciated! :-)


EDIT:'
Problem solved by following instructions on this page:

Time to configure all stuff and have fun! :-D
I keep getting these 404 errors. I even tried changing the path to the parent directory but got the same thing.. I cant find the files if I enter the url in my browser eather.

I just found the problem

Code:
W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/team-xbmc-intrepid/ppa/dists/intrepid/intrepid/binary-powerpc/Packages.gz  404 Not Found

should be:


Code:
http://ppa.launchpad.net/team-xbmc-intrepid/ppa/ubuntu/dists/intrepid/main/binary-powerpc/Packages.gz
ok fixed that first problem, now I cant find it in the installers so I tried the terminal and it says it cant find package XBMC. I doubt running this on a PS3 makes a difference but thats What I'm doing and its ubuntu intrepid.I did it all through both terminal and the software sources with no errors so I should have the packages. but when I use the command "sudo apt-get install xbmc" I get the error that it cant find the package.Angry

It's a different arch. There are no packages for it.

Package libcurl3-dev is a virtual package provided by:

You should explicitly select one to install.
E: Package libcurl3-dev has no installation candidate
E: Failed to satisfy Build-Depends dependency for xbmc: libcurl3-dev


Some updates to libcurl were installed a few days ago through Intrepid. Does this mean the PPA dependencies for XBMC also need to be updatedHuh

I'm trying to compile via the guide in the wiki and I get this same error. What do I need to do to proceed? Total Linux newb here.
apt-get install libcurl3-dev

or read the README.linux at the (local) svn tree and install all the dependencies manually.

Something like this (from README.linux), all in one line:

sudo apt-get install subversion make g++ gcc gawk pmount libtool nasm automake cmake gperf unzip bison libsdl-dev libsdl-image1.2-dev libsdl-gfx1.2-dev libsdl-mixer1.2-dev libsdl-sound1.2-dev libsdl-stretch-dev libfribidi-dev liblzo-dev libfreetype6-dev libsqlite3-dev libogg-dev libasound-dev python-sqlite libglew-dev libcurl4-dev x11proto-xinerama-dev libxinerama-dev libxrandr-dev libxrender-dev libmad0-dev libogg-dev libvorbis-dev libmysqlclient-dev libpcre3-dev libdbus-1-dev libhal-dev libhal-storage-dev libjasper-dev libfontconfig-dev libbz2-dev libboost-dev libfaac-dev libenca-dev libxt-dev libxmu-dev libpng-dev libjpeg-dev libpulse-dev mesa-utils

and off you go!!

You should first launch :
sudo apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev
then
sudo apt-get build-dep xbmc

Thanks. That worked.
Any idea if/when to expect r > 18818 in svn PPA build?
I'm trying to get XBMC working on Debian 5.0, but there are some libs missing I presume is in the Ubuntu distributions, since it seems to be working for Ubuntu users. Right now I'm stuck at this error message while trying to ./configure:

checking for main in -lGL... no

Any idea what I can do to change that?

Thanks!

Hi!

Is there any way to download the .deb packages from the ubuntu ppa to install later in another computer?
Thing is, my home computer is running XBMC but now I don´t have an internet connection in it, I just got internet at the work computer (windows).
So I´d like to download XBMC´s latest ubuntu ppa .deb in my work computer, save it on a usb drive, and install it at home.
Can it be done?

Thank you very much!

Fede:

take a look at this blog post: http://txt.binnyva.com/2009/03/download-...g-apt-get/

you'll also have to be sure to download dependencies.
