Hi LateAdopter,
Thank You very much for your replay. After many weeks of finding a solution, I managed to get it working with your help. It took me a whole day, to figure things out, but now XBMC pvr edition is running on my system.
Thanks.

Ciao folks!

I've not given it a whirl yet, but mom recently upgraded her old desktop to a newer old desktop, haha, so I now have a second (and slightly better than my old one) tinker box to toy around with in Puppy Smile

I was thinking of installing XBMC on my 5.2.8 install on the newer tinker box, but wanted to see if anybody thought it would be decent enough...?

I'm not expecting it to run HD 720p or 1080p video or anything, but streaming music and low quality video from Youtube would be nice! I've read that others seem to have had success with XBMC 10 on machines with even less hardware specs than mine for the same purposes, so I thought this one might foot a basic bill for it.

Stats are:
Intel Pentium 4 single-core 1.6ghz CPU, ATi Radeon 9600XT 128mb DDR, 768mbs RAM

Thoughts Question

Hey I'm not sure what you mean by open ppa in web browser.

I usualy download packages threw terminal in ubuntu.

Can anyone post a step by step of how to install xbmc in precise with all dependencies?

If I search xbmc it brings up a few packages I can install. But if I am not mistaken don't I need to install python first?

Also I have only just upgraded from lucid 5.2.8 to precise are all the graphics divers installed or do I need to install aditional opl graphics drivers.

Thank you so much in advanced.

The instructions were for someone who wanted a version of XBMC with PVR. This is only in development versions which can be installed from various Personal Package Archives (PPA) on launchpad.net. The PVR versions are not in any of the ubuntu.com repositories.

Each PPA on launchpad has its own webpage.

If you just want the standard Eden version 11, then you can install it from a ubuntu repo using the Puppy Package Manager (PPM).

Note: I haven't tried this since beta 6 of Precise Puppy.

The PPM will check dependencies and offer to fetch and install them. This includes Python, if it is not already installed. It is in the devx sfs, and if this is loaded, it will use it from there and won't install it permanently.

When the PPM checks for dependencies it gives you a list of what it has found. You need to check this because it may contain duplicates or things you don't want e.g. some large font packages.

There are two basic components: XBMC architecture independent data, and XBMC-BIN. If you choose the first one in the PPM it will identify the second as a dependency, so you don't need to specify it separately.

I think that the Eden 11 version of XBMC will "work" with whatever drivers Precise Puppy has chosen for your GPU. Just very slowly with some.

The optimum solution depends on what graphics chipset you have and whether you want to try one of the experimental versions with GPU acceleration.

Note: I don't use XBMC so I would not offer advice about that. You would need to research the XBMC forum.

Hey thanks for the speedy reply.

I installed xbmc and it looked like it installed all the dependencies as a terminal window kept popping up and downloading some things.

I havent had a chance to test is because I changed my display settings and for some reason it keeps using vesa drivers...

I will do a fresh install tomorrow as I am at work.

can I launch xbmc from the menu entry?

if not how do you Launch it?

thanks again

Yes. But I can't remember which section of the menu it appeared in.

Failing that you can find the desktop icon in /usr/share/applications. You can click on it or copy it to the desktop.

Or if you type xbmc in the terminal it runs a python script that is in /usr/bin. This sets up some debug/crash logging and then runs xbmc.bin.

If you run xbmc.bin directly it works without needing python

here's an sfs of the xbmc in the precise repo, including the missing lsb-release dependency. it also includes lot of extra repos for extra addons ... to install from the repos, in xbmc goto system>>settings>>>addons>>>get-addons and you'll see the extra repos. i would definitely install the icefilms plugin as it's excellent. the 1channel plugin is good aswell.
