Full Version: Scripts & Plug-in Trouble = Python?
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I followed the install in intrepid / ATI guide (great job), the base install is working great. I can't however seem to get plug-ins or scripts to run. From xbmc i just get running status and nothing. I can see from the error that i am missing modules, i would have thought that everything for xbmc was downloaded from SVN when i did a checkout. I am sure this is simple, i appreciate the help.

Here is the error log when running SVN Repo Installer:

Thanks for the help.....
might be a problem with your python installation .. or the xbmc installation.. try and reinstall both once again..

os is a python module so you know and isn't part of xbmc
So i removed xbmc, and python reinstalled python and installed xbmc from the repo, seems scripts are working, now to test everything else.

thanks
ok, so installing the repo version did not get me very far, it seemed to crash when opening videos or file shares. I am downloading the latest version from svn, i will install on top of repo version and see if that fixes the python problems.

the repo version: the python scripts and add-ins worked great, but that's about it.

8 to 10 hours later i will get this figured out.... so much easier on the xbox.
