How do you switch into and out of xbmc in R6?
I just exit the frontend and run xbmc from a shell. But, you will need to add a menu option to your xml file if you want to do it via remote from the frontend.

I just tried to download xbmc. I got the following error message:
Code:
error: could not prepare transaction
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
libmikmod: /usr/info/dir exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

Can anyone suggest a workaround?

An updated package has been pushed. Do a "pacman -Syu" to update. It seems to be running smoothly on my test system.

@nharris - is this the package in the AUR?

EDIT: nevermind...

Updated xbmc-svn package available. The Arch xbmc maintainers claim that this one is very good/stable. Since xbmc is headed for a release real soon, this is probably a good one to try out.

On R6 01.00 to get the XBMC package to work

Code:
rm /usr/info/dir


Code:
pacman -S xbmc-svn


Now that R6 works with my Snapstream Firefly remote out of the box :lol: , it would be super if the remote also just worked with XBMC.

R6
Code:
/usr/Mythvantage/templates/remotes/snapstream_firefly/lircrc-snapstrm.txt


XBMC - Edited this file using the Mythvantage Template as an guide to create a snapstream firefly remote.

Code:
/usr/share/xbmc/system/Lircmap.xml


I'm not clear what is required for sharing Lirc - XBMC-XML and R6-txt

Code:
/etc/Lircrc

@racerx - did you get your remote to work with xbmc? If so, please share. I've been trying without success: http://knoppmyth.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=20591

Graysky

So far I have not yet found answer about how share xml data with txt. However, I did come across this script which gets at the broader thought between XBMC and Mythfrontend (ie sharing the remote).


http://code.google.com/p/yatvgrabber/wiki/XbmcMythtvRemote

Code:

    * add this to ~/.lircrc

      include ~/.lirc/irexec

    * create or add/modify this file ~/.lirc/irexec

      begin
           prog = irexec
           button = LiveTV
           config = ~/scripts/appswitch.pl
      end

    * create this script file ~/scripts/appswitch.pl and make it executable

      #!/usr/bin/perl -w
      ###############################################################################################################################
      ## Name: appswitch.pl

I changed the video button in mythtv to launch xbmc for watching movies. I think XBMC has a much better way of displaying movies and its grabber seems to get almost all of my files correct. I then exit xbmc and myth is still running, I may play with the above script.

I followed these directions to load xbmc-svn onto my R6 system, tried to start up xbmc from a terminal, and it crashes before starting. Crash log has these two errors:

Code:
02:26:08 T:3043522448 M:1879744512   ERROR: GLX: Same window as before, refreshing context


and then at the end of the crash log there is

Code:
02:26:09 T:3043522448 M:1871839232   ERROR:  DS: Failed to connect to the D-Bus session daemon: dbus-launch failed to autolaunch D-Bus session: Failed to waitpid() for babysitter intermediate process: No child processes


Anyone else see this? One note is this was post-0.22 upgrade.

I have not seen this error before on R6 01.00, it works fine for me. Could you try this?

Code:
dbus-launch xbmc
