Is their a step by step guide to installing XBMC on Linux for Noobs!
I have not idea what file to download off soundforge and how to install XBMC.
Ive looked and couldnt find a guide anywhere.
Can someone point me in the right direction.
P.S Sorry for the Noobness of my question, please refrain from pointing out my stupidity

Try this for starters -> http://www.xboxmediacenter.com/wiki/index.php?title=HOW-TO_compile_XBMC_for_Linux_from_source_code
Suggest strongly that once you have followed the directions for setting up Subversion and downloading the source code that you READ the README.linux file that comes down with it. The instructions in that will be most up to date vs what is on the Wiki. The Wiki will give you a good flavor for what's needed. Suggest you use Ubuntu 7.10 Desktop, there's a link in my signature.
Here's another good link ->

BLKMGK beat me to it..
As he said, I'd read the readme.linux as it is more current than the wiki.
Don't expect much more support than that as it is still pre-alpha and not recommended for linux beginners.

Aw c'mon now this isn't bad. Excitement over this project is a good thing! With your build script and the instructions in the Readme this isn't really too hard to setup. Ubuntu has even made the Linux part of it accessible to many without much fuss. We can always point future folks just getting into this at threads like this one to get them started. The more oddball hardware and the more eyeballs just means that there's more people testing....

I meant the fact that this guy obviously did NO research before posting. Everything is available plain as day so long as you read.

Well, I suppose if you came across this port in the forum and didn't spot the Wiki page it might be pretty confusing. <shrug>

+1 for Noob-Guide.
I guess it wouldn't be a bad thing if a total-noob-step-by-step-guide got written and pinned in this sub-forum.

there already is a guide.
If you want a more simplified guide then make one yourself. But accomodating all the possible errors in all the possible hardware configurations may be difficult.
Respect that the program hasnt been released. Use it at your own risk and dont expect support.
