Cant use aptitude do update to Beta 3 PPA.
It will try to remove a bunch of important packages:

Code:
xbmc@ASRock-ION:~$ sudo aptitude safe-upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Reading extended state information
Initializing package states... Done
The following packages will be REMOVED:

  xbmc-eventclients-wiiremote xbmc-eventclients-xbmc-send xbmc-live xbmc-skin-confluence xbmc-standalone
12 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 23 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 40.1MB of archives. After unpacking 37.8MB will be freed.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n/?]

This does not happens with apt-get:

Code:
xbmc@ASRock-ION:~$ sudo apt-get upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following packages will be upgraded:
  dkms xbmc xbmc-bin xbmc-data xbmc-eventclients-common xbmc-eventclients-dev xbmc-eventclients-j2me xbmc-eventclients-ps3
  xbmc-eventclients-wiiremote xbmc-eventclients-xbmc-send xbmc-live xbmc-skin-confluence xbmc-standalone
13 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 40.2MB of archives.
After this operation, 496kB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]?

That's odd...

Anybody have any idea why? I always use aptitude, including when updating from beta 1 to beta 2, and this never happened before...

Cheers.

I just upgraded to Maverick Meerkat. There are no repositories available for this distribution. To make the matters worse, when installing from the .DEB here https://edge.launchpad.net/~team-xbmc-svn/+archive/ppa/+build/1996354

I get this error:

Dependency is not satisfiable: libmodplug0c2 (>= 1:0.7-4.1)


- Celox - 2010-10-16 22:16

xbmc does not officially support maverick yet, maverick uses newer/latest librarys/binarys. so a separate package has to be compiled by the xbmc ppa-team which includes fixes/changes on dependency problems.

that process takes time, maverick got released on 10.10. Rofl give it some more time Smile

Randomly installing a deb would never try to resolve missing deps. Don't treat Linux like it's windows.

For helpful info, please try adding the Lucid ppa and using apt-get install xbmc. Any failures there are significant.

i can wait, it gives canonical time to work any big bugs out of ubuntu before i dist upgrade.

This is like installing Windows 7, and then attempting to install an application *known* to not run on Windows 7, and then wondering why it won't work. It's pretty obvious why it won't work. It doesn't matter what you try, it's as square peg and a round hole.

If you're really, absolutely stuck on Maverick, and can't get back to Lucid, then there are some experimental Maverick builds out there, and I have absolutely zero idea on whether any of them actually work or not. I doubt that they'll be plug and play though.

I went ahead and added the SVN PPA, then changed the distribution to 'lucid' in apt sources.

I had the same error with libmodplug0c2, so I googled "libmodplug0c2 maverick," and found some deb packages:

https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/maverick/+package/libmodplug0c2

Downloaded the deb for my distribution (amd64) and installed with dpkg.

XBMC would then install from the SVN PPA and is working fine.

Please help me out guys.
In reference with the above and my post on previous page:

Still doesn't work and it seems that I couldn't go over the dependencies errors.
I also tried to use the "force" option but it returned with lots of errors since I most likely mistaken how to place it. Please help.

This is the reason this thread exists. It's to report problems with the builds. All this stopped is bug testing for me. My family media center runs the latest SVN that works on my virtual machine.

Excellent. My vanilla maverick install + attempt to put xbmc on it in VMWare was still missing tons after the additional instructions here. It probably works on a dist-upgrade, but not plain vanilla, or I may not have had a repo opened up or something. I have been having problems hitting some of the ubuntu repos for whatever reason. But I figured that since even the latest svn ppa builds aren't listed as Maverick compatible yet that it's not really a ppa issue if they don't work on Maverick. So, I decided to stick with Lucid.

I'm very glad that some people got it working!


- outleradam - 2010-10-20 16:48

I never got vmware to work on any ubuntu dist. I use oracle virtual box PUEL version because it installs easier. I then install xbmc live with ppa and update-manager. Then ssh -X into it. Before I use update-manager -d on the media center I do it on the vbox.


- Hannes The Hun - 2010-10-30 12:54

in case nobody noticed it: since 10/28 there's a maverick build in SVN repo

gonna try it today after upgrading my XBMCbuntu server install to maverick, I hope I don't FUBAR it ^^


- proson - 2010-10-31 15:27

I have Lucid installed on a SSD. Should I update to Maverick?


- Hannes The Hun - 2010-11-01 11:31

if it ain't broke, don't fix it Wink

honestly, distribution upgrades in ubuntu always had the tendency to screw up your system
