XBMC LiveUSB (formerly "LiveXBMC") V1: an USB disk image
#38
profspudhed Wrote:my first consideration is although the readme says ubuntu is needed is there the possibility that it could be compiled on a more light weight distro, for ease probably something debian based, but slackware would be nice due to its size
I would recommend using Ubuntu Mobile as the base, see:
http://www.ubuntu.com/products/mobile
http://wiki.ubuntu.com/MobileAndEmbedded


profspudhed Wrote:my second question is the minimal size requirements, my usb stick is only 2gb is it actually feasible that i could fit an os on and compile it within this space.
well l.capriotti managed to fit his Ubuntu Mobile based 'LiveXBMC' on a 512MB USB-memory-stick so I do not think 2GB will be a problem, (I actually think a 1GB USB-memory-stick would be a good compromise, and making the full image fir on a 650MB CD-R for easy distrobutiuon and installation). See:

profspudhed Wrote:better yet can i compile xbmc on another system and transfer the finished result to the os on the stick?
I honestly do not know, though I asume that l.capriotti installed Ubuntu Mobile from a CD directly onto the USB-memory-stick on the machine he intended his image to work on and compiled XBMC in that OS, then he took that USB-memory-stick to a other computer which already had an operating-system and created the image from there.
