If you are running with the testing repos, I have pushed a new xbmc-svn package. You might want to do a pacman -Syu to try it out.

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

Code:
dbus-launch xbmc


I updated to the latest svn package, same crash, same series of errors. I then tried dbus-launch xbmc. It crashed too, the GLX and "Linux distribution" errors are still there but the dbus error went away.

Before it gives me the crash report, and not in the crash report, are a bunch of lines that say "Xlib: extension "Generic Event Extension" missin gon display ":0.0" and then a line just before the segfault that says "sh: /usr/bin/lsb_release: No such file or directory"

Hmm

When I launch Xbmc I get the message

Code:
Xlib:  extension "Generic Event Exension" missing on display ":0.0.
Xlib:  extension "Generic Event Exension" missing on display ":0.0.
Xlib:  extension "Generic Event Exension" missing on display ":0.0.

sh: /usr/bin/lsb_release: No such file or directory
sh: /usr/bin/lsb_release: No such file or directory
sh: /usr/bin/lsb_release: No such file or directory


and then Xbmc starts up normally. Is this when it Segfaults for you?

Check out your XBMC log...

Code:
su
find -name xbmc.log

This should lead to
Code:
./home/mythtv/.xmbc/temp/xbmc.log
./root/.xbmc/temp/xbmc.log


What graphics card do you have?

Thanks for helping with this, RacerX.

I get one of those lsb_release errors, not three, and then it segfaults.

When I do a "find -name xbmc.log" as root in root's home directory, it finds nothing. When I do it as mythtv user, or if I do it as root in /home/mythtv/, it finds only "./.xbmc/temp/xbmc.log" That log has the same errors as the crashlog.

I have a GeForce 8400GS, latest nVidia drivers posted in testing.

Just realized I have been running it as mythtv user... maybe I'll try as root for grins.

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.


Which remote are you using? I know how to make a menu item in the mythtv xml to launch xbmc but I can't seem to find a keymap.xml for my remote which is the one that comes with the PVR-250 known as the "gray remote."

I actually use one of those cheap mce remotes that act like a keyboard, I then program the appropriate buttons on my logitech remote to operate xbmc, I also adjusted the keymap and had to disable my r-ctrl r-alt and r-shift because the cheap remote sends a lot of combination keypresses. It is more responsive than lirc though.

Do you have a remote.xml file I think that is the one for remote controls, not 100% sure though.

This is really cool! Thx for adding this to pacman.

how do I get the theme from http://code.google.com/p/mythbox/ to be used on xbmc?

oops, figured it out. interesting

XBMC 9.11 Camelot is now the in the testing repo as the default xbmc install. If you are running xbmc-svn, you may want to uninstall it and then install the xbmc package.

Code:
pacman -R xbmc-svn
pacman -Syu
pacman -S xbmc

Enjoy!

Tried the above new install and cant find xbmc in /usr/bin Pacman didn't complain. Did I bork something?

OK, found it... could have been easier.

Code:
/opt/xbmc/share/xbmc/xbmc.bin

Good catch. I need to change the prefix to /usr. PKGBUILDs are just so easy (usually they just work) one gets sloppy checking all the details.

This official Arch packages do this as well while the svn package in the AUR uses the standard prefix. I don't know why...

Has anyone gotten the below script to work? I couldn't get it to restart the mythfrontend. Been working on a simpler script, but cant get that to work either. Anyone have a working script that will switch from myth to xbmc and then back, with a single remote button push?

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).

Just wanted to verify with you guys if you are having deinterlacing issues with XMBC. I installed from testing and was playing around with XMBC - it is really nice but when I play 1080i (CBS) the interlacing artifacts are terrible.

Googling around it seems that the deinterlacing with VDPAU isn't very good or even there. I assume that is what I'm seeing.

My question is if the devs here (Nathan?) were keeping an eye on the XBMC development to fix this. I think I read somewhere that people are working on it.

Also I wanted to ask if there is any interest in having a Boxee build in testing. I checked into it a bit and I guess getting it to compile on a non-ubuntu system is a bit of a challenge. Here is an Arch wiki page that discusses building it:

http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Boxee-source

Boxee is great. But so are the dependencies.

http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=24206

I have not tried interlaced content with XBMC. My movies are progressive and I don't use XBMC for TV playback. However, I can't see how VDPAU deinterlacing would not work, since it worked with mplayer before MythTV.

I'm not sure if there's a howto for MythBox, so if you already know this, please ignore my message.

For newbies like me:
http://mythbox.googlecode.com/hg/README
If you're at step 5:
open /etc/my.cnf and look for this line

skip-networking
Please comment out skip-networking like this:
# skip-networking

reboot your knoppmyth system and follow the README.

Ofcourse you can do this before you start reading the readme :P
