Full Version: Linux version confusion: stable/svn/live alpha

I am a little confused with all the versions. I instaled XBMC on Ubuntu a few weeks ago using a script from Virtualdanny. It installed latest stable which at that time was 9.04 from may.

By changing the script I was able to update to latest SVN, which I did twice. I uncommented the lines in the script below with svn in it, and commented the other two.

Recently Live Alpha2 was released. Apart from being a bootable cd, I wonder if alpha2 is the same as a specific svn build here? If I want to update now (I have some small bugs still) should I get the Alpha2 which is all the rave now, or just once more update to latest svn?

Somehow I see a lot of posts of high cpu usage on latest svn, and a lot of positive comments on alpha2 so that's why in my mind they look like two different products.
