Go to "System Preferences", select "Accounts" and change your password. You'll probably have to click the lock in the lower left hand corner first to be able to make changes. Once you've done this, exit the Preference Pane, go back to the Terminal window, and when the sudo command asks for the password, enter your new password.

CosyCat Wrote:wow thx, but I cant find the libraries I think I installed in /opt/local/bin
From the output you posted it looks like you don't have one or more of the required libraries installed.
to find out which libraries you have installed, open up a Terminal window, use the export PATH=/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:$PATH command to set the MacPorts path, then type: port installed
This should give you a list of the installed ports. Here is what I get:
The following ports are currently installed:
expat @2.0.1_0 (active)
freetype @2.3.5_1 (active)
fribidi @0.10.9_0 (active)
gawk @3.1.6_0 (active)
gettext @0.17_3 (active)
glew @1.4.0_0 (active)
libcddb @1.1.0_0 (active)
libcdio @0.75_0 (active)
libiconv @1.12_0 (active)
lzo @1.08_0 (active)
ncurses @5.6_0 (active)
ncursesw @5.6_1 (active)
pkgconfig @0.23_0 (active)
readline @5.2.007_0+darwin_9 (active)
sqlite2 @2.8.17_0 (active)
sqlite3 @3.5.4_0 (active)
zlib @1.2.3_1 (active)
If you're missing all, or some, go back to the instructions I outlined earlier and get the libraries installed or XBMC will not work.

What kind of video chipset is in your notebook? As I understand it, the Intel Integrated GMA950 is not very well supported at the moment. I'm using this on a new iMac with a built in Radeon HD2600 Pro.
Mine is set to 1920x1200 rather than 1080i, as I'm not currently connected to an external monitor.

GMA950 and it runs in 1280x720 now after restart.
Network shares no go?
tried play some x264 720p files an it crash.
I Hope GMA950 is better supported later.
Now I can sleep 6in the morning and still not sober.

SMB is not supported directly, but as long as you can mount the share, you're in business.
What I've done on mine is to set the Volumes folder as a source. Since you can't actually browse to it, open the UserData folder in XBMC, and edit sources.xml with TextEdit. Here is what I've added to the video section in mine:
So when I go to it, I see all the mounted volumes (HDD, DVD, Network Shares, etc.)

Did you install XBMC-0.0.6 yet? It plays x264 files pretty well.
What seems to crash my system is video files that use .srt subtitles. It doesn't seem to matter what type the files are (avi, MPG, mp4, mkv, etc).
Files with VOBSubs are fine, but .srt spells instant crash.

So i was able to get the first two builds working, I chmod'ed the rest of the builds, but for some reason os x is still looking for a program to open those builds with.
