I am having some problems. I am running XBMCbuntu and upgraded to precise. I have added the Nathan Rennie-Waldock nightly ppa. I have apt-get updated and upgraded. However in xbmc system info it shows a compile date of 3/25. Can someone help me with what I am doing wrong please?
Try this
Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Then reboot
Downloaded the latest version but xbmc hangs allot now (when scaning for movies or tv shows) and i have to restart xbmc but when i restart xbmc i can only see a background and an mouse curser. To fix this have to delete the user profile map and then xbmc is working fine again.

error log:

Tried and still the same. I was using source code from FernetMenta. Is there something I need to do to have my box "follow" the ppa packages or something?

EDIT: Figured it out sorta. gpg isn't getting the key.

I would be careful with those nightly builds. Personally, I would wait for the monthly builds, rather than play around with nightly builds...
i'm using a nightly from august 8th and am getting these errors (so happening with openelec frodo builds i tried recently). When these warnings occur, video freezes but audio continues ok. Is anyone else having this issue?

ok i have added ppa:nathan-renniewaldock/xbmc-nightly as a repo, done a apt-get update, apt-get upgrade and apt-get dist-upgrade yet XBMC is still showing build was compiled on the 8th August.

Any ideas?
I disabled my uploads as the android merge completely broke Linux builds. I enabled it a couple days ago. I'll check why it didn't upload now.

It appears that everything since the 8th has failed to build. It'd be nice to not have to compile from source every time, but I have yet to find a good option...

Sorry, I was unclear - that PPA's buildbot hasn't successfully built anything since the 8th. Compiling on your own will work.

and I failed to realize that HellFire is maintaining that PPA. I'll let him speak to the issues...

What PPA is still pushing monthly builds? The official PPA hasn't been updated since 3/23. Kind of annoying...
