Hi!

I Installed Spotify according to these instructions

http://cloud.github.com/downloads/akezeke/spotyxbmc/README

After that XBMC do no longer autostart, instead I end with the tty1 prompt just as if x does not start.

All help welcome!

I can install from a CD but I am tired of burning discs. I know I can upgrade via cli. But I am often helping friends build XBMC machines and I would rather just be able to do a new install to a hard drive from a USB stick with the image on it (especially since ernham keeps pumping out all of these great revisions).

Thanks,
Bahndit
Make sure that this "cdrom-detect/try-usb=true" exists in the command line in file \boot\grub\menu.lst for the option you're selecting. It's likely got a title line of this; title Install XBMCLive to disk

I have a problem with resolution. The res. I want doesn't come up in settings. I've read about making changes in the xorg.conf so I tried to follow a guide.
I am a total beginner at Linux so I don't know if I am doing it right. The guide told me to edit xorg.conf using the command "sudo nano /etc/x11/xorg.conf".

I ctrl+alt+f1 out, logged in and the wrote the exact code as above. Now I seem to enter som sort of editor but it is totally blank. Why? Shouldn't there be alot of text here?

I am using the XBMCfreak Live CD installed to a HDD. My TV is connected using the VGA.
When I had only ubuntu installed I could change the settings using the nvidia program installed with the drivers.

Please help a total beginner i linux.

You should write the path using the same uppercases and lowercases. The X in X11 is uppercase, so the right command is:

sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf

*facepalm*
How could I not notice that...
Thanks alot.

So I tried that and it worked so I moved on with the guide and now I face another problem.
I am supposed to set up a logfile for the TV's edid modes. First I killed xbmc the i wrote "cd~", nothing seemed to happen so I moved on writing "X -verbose 6 > ~/xlog.txt 2>&1" and the screen went blank.
Now I am supposed to kill X by pressing ctrl+c but nothing happened, screen still blank. So I pressed ctrl+alt+f1 and returend to the terminal. Here I pressed ctrl+c and it seemed to halt the previous command.
But how do I access the xlog.txt file? If I write /home/xbmc/xlog.txt I only get the response that the file does not exist.

I really need to find me some linux for dummies guide.:o

Skip trying to do it for yourself, and just use the script you can find here http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=70068.
It should set the video side of things up for you with the correct refresh rates.

Ahh... Great, thank you.

Now it works using the hdmi, but no change using the VGA-port. I was hoping to use my VGA-port because I have only one hdmi in my TV and was already using it. I know my TV supports 1280x768 through the VGA so why will XBMC only let me choose 1024x768.

Does anyone know if xbmcfreak v13 or the new generic cd has the drivers/resume script for the Asrock 330 HT on it?

Has anyone tested this with Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx Beta 1 already?

Well, as it's a live cd it wouldn't matter.

Nope not yet. Only XBMC SVN should work on Lucid since 9.11 doesn't exist for Lucid. My plan is to start building with Lucid when XBMC SVN is more stable.

ah okay, so we have to use the GenericCD for our ION systems.

Smile

Hope it works just as simple as the CD which was only for ION-systems.
