XBMC Nightly (+ xbmc-live) and Wii Remote - pumkinut - 2011-09-25 23:12
I decided to add a hard drive and use it as a sandbox to play around with the pre-Eden nightlies. I got everything up and running and installed Pre-11.0 compiled on Sept. 25th, so today's build.
Everything was going fine until I installed xbmc-live, when I did that the xbmc-eventclients were uninstalled. I use the wii remote eventclient so that I can control XBMC with my Wii remote, I don't have a remote other than it. Can I still use the wiiremote with the nightlies+xbmc-live or do I have to find another way of doing things?

If installing xbmc-live is killing the wiimote functionality, what do I have to do to have xbmc autostart? Could I just put an entry in rc.local, or is more involved. I'm willing to forgo the xbmc-live part and work at getting vanilla xbmc autostarting if I can keep the wiimote as a controller.

how are you installing the latest nightly build?
- pumkinut - 2011-09-27 01:22
I added the repository for nightlies (apt-add-repository ppa:team-xbmc/unstable)

Something's up. Now if I have any version installed I can't install any of the eventclients. Currently, I have the Oct 7 git version. I can start xbmc just fine, but if I try to install any of the eventclients xbmc and xbmc-bin are removed. I don't have another remote to use currently. Am I stuck using the keyboard only?
Can someone please let me know what's going on here?

hmmm i'm stuck with this too.
If I install 10.1 and then upgrade, everything works until I add the wiimote eventclient. it then goes right ahead and removes xbmc
if i install 10.1 then the wiimote and finally do the upgrade I can see it uninstalling the eventclient.

Yup, installed a nightly compiled yesterday, same issue. I can usually work around it by launching XBMC and then installing the eventclient. I can then launch xbmc-wiiremote and pair my wiimote. I then reinstall XBMC. The wiimote stays active, so I can use it for navigation. Sucks, bit it seems like the only way of doing things for now. It would be reeeeeeaaaaalllly nice if someone in the know could chime in on this.

ahhh thats too much of a fiddle. Such a shame as the wiimote is almost perfect. back to 10.1

Oh, I agree that it's a ginormous P.I.T.A., but it's the only way I've found of making the Wiimote work with pre-Eden. Thing is, if none of the evenclients install correctly, it kills more than the Wiimote, other remotes are not going to work either.
Luckily, I have a sandbox install of pre-Eden. My main install of XBMC is still Dharma.

Sorry to bump this, but is no-one else eventclient/remote/wiimote issues?
