Updated to Eden beta, XBMC menu disappeared
#16
I have found a fix to this problem. I'd like to point out that I have no experience in how the ATV jb works, but I do have some experience in apt and dpkg ^^ So bare with me Wink

My symptoms:
After updating using SSH (apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade) my XMBC and NitoTV menus were missing.
My /var/log/syslog showed me the following errors:

Code:
Apr  8 04:00:32 Apple-TV /Applications/AppleTV.app/AppleTV[123]: Failed to allow loading of appliance /Applications/AppleTV.app/Appliances//Overflow.frappliance
Apr  8 04:00:32 Apple-TV /Applications/AppleTV.app/AppleTV[123]: Failed to allow loading of appliance /Applications/AppleTV.app/Appliances//XBMC.frappliance
Apr  8 04:00:32 Apple-TV /Applications/AppleTV.app/AppleTV[123]: Failed to allow loading of appliance /Applications/AppleTV.app/Appliances//nitoTV.frappliance

After a long Google session and about an hour of trying stuff, I figured out what to do.
Have a look at what your update did. I used less to read the apt logfile:
Code:
Apple-TV:~ root# less /var/log/apt/term.log

Look for the update that caused your problems. Here is mine:

In my case, amonst others, the beigelist package was updated: (Setting up beigelist (2.2.2-3) ...)

I decided to start downgrading stuff at random and see what it would do. Beigelist was the one that did the trick.

So, have a look at what version you had before the upgrade. Its in the term.log file.
Code:
Preparing to replace beigelist 2.1-2 (using .../beigelist_2.2.2-3_iphoneos-arm.deb) ...

Have a look if that version is still supported by the repository:
Code:
Apple-TV:~ root# apt-cache showpkg beigelist

Look at the "Provides" list and look up your previous version:
Code:
.....
Provides:
2.2.2-3 - org.awkwardtv.whitelist
2.2.1-1 - org.awkwardtv.whitelist
2.2-1 - org.awkwardtv.whitelist
2.1-2 - org.awkwardtv.whitelist
2.1-1 - org.awkwardtv.whitelist
2.0-1 - org.awkwardtv.whitelist
1.0-1 - org.awkwardtv.whitelist
Reverse Provides:
......

If your version is listed here, you are able to downgrade beigelist using apt-get. Mine was version 2.2-1 so i executed the following command.
Code:
Apple-TV:~ root# apt-get install beigelist=2.1-2
(note the =2.1-2 forcing the previous version)

And that fixed it! Yay!

I would like to add that I have no idea of the implications this downgrade has on the system. As said before, I have little experience in these matters. All I know is that i have my ATV2 back, with Eden! Smile

My Provides where the same so 'apt-get install beigelist=2.1-2' worked fine.

Seems there is something wrong in the latest upgrade, hope somebody looks at it, but in the meantime it is working fine with this fix.
