Hi,

I've read in the online manual:
Supported Linux Operating-System installed on a supported computer, currently supported OS are:

* Ubuntu Desktop Edition 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) 32-bit for x86
* Ubuntu Desktop Edition 8.04 (Hardy Heron) 32-bit for x86
* Ubuntu Server Edition 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) 32-bit for x86
* Ubuntu Server Edition 8.04 (Hardy Heron) 32-bit for x86
* Ubuntu Mobile and Embedded Edition 7.10 (UME) 32-bit for x86
* Ubuntu Mobile and Embedded Edition 8.04 (UME) 32-bit for x86

I'm running Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) Daily Build from 07-Oct-2008.

Will Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) final be supported in the future?
Am i able to run xbmc on Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) Daily Build now?

Of course 8.10 final will be supported. The readme.linux mentions 8.10 now, so I imagine the SVN release will probably work.

AFAIK the Hardy PPA works fine on Intrepid.

There are currently problems with pbuilder on Intrepid which launchpad uses to create the release. Hence no Intrepid specific release. Don't use the daily repo. though. It has been disabled since the feature freeze some months ago.

I'm running Atlantis Beta 2 from the Hardy PPA on my Ibex install. I originally installed Beta 1 this way, and yesterday when I did the daily "aptitude update && aptitude full-upgrade" XBMC was updated without problems as well.

Just add the PPA to the sources.lst and then aptitude update && apt-get install xbmc

Works like a charm. Smile

Built from SVN on a machine running the Intrepid kernel. Ran really well on my AMD64 machine. The ppa's both cashed a lot. The SVN has not cashed on me yet.

I had this running fine then I ran the newest update yesterday and it killed it. Xbmc starts for about 3 seconds then it closes its self. I was going to just uninstall and then reinstall but synaptic can not find xbmc any more. The repos are still listed and checked. Does any one have any idea what would cause this?

Hi I am trying to install on the Ubuntu Intrepid Beta however get the following error...

sudo apt-get install xbmc
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
xbmc: Depends: xbmc-common (= 8.10b2-hardy1) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: xbmc-skin-pm3-hd (= 8.10b2-hardy1) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: xbmc-web-pm3 (= 8.10b2-hardy1) but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

Ok, here is the problem.

I am using Intrepid Ibex beta right now.

I recently installed the 8.10 beta and then did a partial upgrade on it because it said it had over 200 packages to install updates to.

One such package is libbluetooth2. It installed the update for this package, which is now called libbluetooth3.

When you go to install XBMC in synaptic using the PPA repos, it says that libbluetooth2 is a dependency for XBMC-common and therefore it gives the message that the previous posters have put on the forum.

The reason the other two packages fail is because they require xbmc-common.

If xbmc-common is updated to use libbluetooth3 insted of libbluetooth2 this will resolve the issues.

I have no idea where to go from here, but these are my findings and I hope someone will be able to use this information to fix the issue.

So, in short, if you are using FULLY patched version on intrepid ibex, at the time of this posting, xbmc will not work using the hardy repositories due to the libbluetooth3 update.

Any news about this problem?

I am just using the hardy libbluetooth2 deb.

libbluetooth3 does not conflict with libbluetooth2

@JackieBrown: Thanks, it worked!

I was having difficulty reinstalling libbluetooth2... until I saw your message mentioning the deb file.

Then, what I did...
1. Got the deb file from Launchpad (https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/hardy/i386/...th2/3.24-1)
2. Installed the deb file (with the Package Installer)
3. Reinstalled XBMC from the repo

N.B. It seems that using "System Tools- System Cleaner" removed libbbluetooth2 and xbmc alltogether...
