Linux HOW-TO compile XBMC from a GIT source
again, ta for the help.

i started again with the last stable live release.

ran the script before doing anything else, and i got the same errors.

so i started from the top of your step by step and it looks like autopoint is listed as an xbmc dep, even though i'm using lucid.

so i googled and it's been backported here - ppa:lucid-bleed/ppa

so i'm seeing if this works now.
Reply
you only need autopoint if your using 10.10 AKA Maverick DO NOT install things you do not need.

please install what I suggested before because YOU DO NEED THOSE.

You are probably using a script that predates that addition of the NEEDED dependencies.

Again I explained what was wrong, why it was worng and gave you the solution, which you seem to be ignoring.

i just told you, i formatted my hdd, reinstalled the system from the latest stable, and then re-downloaded your script AND followed the step-by-step above it after it failed. I also installed the above ones you mentioned.

I'm not ignoring you're advice. I'm following it, and posting back what appears to be going wrong.

i'm using your instructions as they are right now. and if you follow them on a lucid install, you get stuck at:

apt-get build-dep xbmc -y

because it is asking for "autopoint"

i'm gonna reinstall and follow your guide once more, and then give up.

if it is asking for autopoint then thers something seriously wrong over there

https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/blob/master/README.ubuntu

and

https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/blob/master/README.linux

are very clear.

If lucid is asking for autopoint its INCORRECT and impossible since XBMC does not depend on autopoint. It doesn't even EXIST for Lucid. (if it is ask on IRC freenode #xbmc-linux as this is very unusual)

Also the apt-get build-dep xbmc -y or sudo apt-get build-dep xbmc -y never asks for autopoint, I have a another lucid (xbmclive) machine and just tried it its passes with flying colors.

The reason why I said you seemed to be ignoring me is because of this autopoint remarks you made, as that is clearly stated on official documentation and this topic which is only for MAVERICK 10.10

btw that was a install from scratch with this ISO http://mirrors.xbmc.org/releases/live/xb...1-live.iso

just installed the live cd again,

i noticed that when it gets to the xbmc dep stage, it removes "libcurl4-openssl-dev"

is that supposed to do that?

edit - darn, didnt work Sad
Reply
Yes it removes libcurl4-openssl-dev its perfectly normal.

post your config.log please Its i your xbmc/git directory
Reply
just to outline what i did. install xbmc from the 10.1 disk with username 'xbmc'

boot it up.

log in via ssh as xbmc
run: sudo passwd root and create my password
login as root
download the XBMC_build_git.sh and change it's properties (chmod) using copy/paste from the guide.

ran "./XBMC_build_git.sh upgrade"

here is my config.log: http://pastebin.com/Ytu8jqKC

Hey guys,

After reading all this, Just for fun, I decided to download live cd 10.1 and reinstall, I was having weird issues with airplay videos anyway, and all my data is backed up on the server...I previously installed 10.5 and it is on an acer revo 3610. Upgrade from compile worked no problem, refresh, etc...

To begin, downloaded a fresh XBMC_build_git.sh script

So, I could not get it to compile, I kept getting the final make error. I don't like this new 10.1 because it has alsamixer 1.0.22 that messes up my ac3 files over hdmi.

==============================

E: Package autopoint has no installation candidate
E: Failed to process build dependencies

Shows up early in the script

And I end up with

Copying XBMC binary to /usr/lib/xbmc/xbmc.bin
install: cannot stat `xbmc.bin': No such file or directory
make: *** [install-binaries] Error 1

This has turned into a headache for me.. lol

I am running as root, but I tried as sudo -su and sudo -i just in case it was a home directory thing, I would run this 10.1 xbmc-live official but this alsa 1.0.22 has hdmi issues for me.. I am going to look for my 10.5 live cd.. but I think I tossed it.

I might just jump to Maverick 10.1 live from xbmcfreak just to get back up again, for some reason Alsa on that one works out of the box.

I have tried 5 fresh installs, used apt-get update with some, tried without on others, and each ends the same way when I try to compile.

Sorry I was no help, lol, now I am with you!

Neil and Nativecanadian cause your problem SEEMS to be with libnfs try this

Code:
wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4325533/git.sh
chmod+x git.sh
./git.sh refresh
@ nativecanadian, this seems like a normal occurrence now

please try

Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/unstable
apt-get update
sudo apt-get build-dep xbmc -y
them do the same as I suggested to Neil above

seems like libNFS may be borking this up and the build-dep are skipping on script and I dont know why or HOW.
Reply
And to both of you if its failing with script please do it the manual way to ensure IT works and everything is installed ok.

the modifies script doesnt include NFS support on refresh and I removed the multicpu make compile option for now

AGAIN THIS IS A MASSIVE HEAD ACHE not just for you...

so please do TRY the manual way and omit the libnfs if it causes problems.

small hickup on the temporary script now corrected.

see here

http://forum.xbmc.org/showpost.php?p=844...tcount=144

compiled ok for me

pastebin of the lot http://paste.ubuntu.com/649502/

it's not working yet Sad

i ran the commands one at a time, everything up to the make command seems to work ok.

I ran "make" several times, just to see what happened. my guess was it would ok everything except the errors, here is the output

http://paste.ubuntu.com/649525/

also, how did you get your output in a text file like above? i used | tee /home/output.log but it doesnt give me all the lines i see in the terminal, so i had to copy/paste out of putty (ssh)

Smile removed as not to waste your time reading it... Smile

ok when you fisrt install whatver xbmclive or freak or whatever mininal DOENST MATTER

the script needs to install all dependencies wich is in this case ./git.sh upgrade then when all that is ran whenever you need to update your git version to newer then you do ./gitsh refresh

since you seem to have skipped the most important part, (./git.sh upgrade) Im not surprised that you got all those errors... heck you dont have a xbmc source to compile from its a 1GB download (form ./git.sh upgrade)

you don't need to create any dirs the script does it all for you...

please read the MAIN post the first one..

Im not repeating myself over and over. thers a reason why I put a FAQ on here and keep main post updated.

Your not in same boat your on a completely different boat in fact its not a boat your actually swimming and badly.

Whats funny is that you did it to yourself by not following the instructions.

Please do it all the manual way at least once SO YOU AT leats UNDERSTAND whats going on.
