Can anyone explain to me what I might be doing wrong? I'm running Karmic and I've done all the obvious things like run apt-get update..
michal@htpc:~$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/team-xbmc-svn-ppa-karmic.list
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/team-xbmc-svn/ppa/ubuntu karmic main
michal@htpc:~$ apt-cache show xbmc |grep Ver
If I look at:
It also seems to be missing the newer packages.. And indeed if I look in:
The newer builds are missing.. Any ideas?
P.S. I saw there were problems with the SVN PPA with builds failing but I did not see mention of the missing Karmic builds in that thread.
EDIT: Am I correct in understanding that there have been no new Karmic builds for well over 3 months?

Yes no new working builds for a long time, due to the state of flux that the SVN is in (partially due to the merge of the addons branch). if you look at the timeline on the trac you'll notice development is currently very active.
Don't get annoyed, there are issues with the current builds, try to remember these people do everything they do for XBMC out of the goodness of their heart, You can't complain about the QOS when you dont pay anything for the service. Also try no swear, or even sudo swear (see first line of your post) it doesnt make people want to help you any more.

Thank you for responding to my query.
I thought you were specifically referring to amd64 builds, whereas I am on i386 x86.
The only reason I'm ever trying to update is that I've been having problems with some m4v files (Apple keynotes) where they don't play smoothly. I know they used to so there must have been an update to either XBMC or the Nvidia drivers (I use VDPAU) at some stage that broke it.
I'm not annoyed, just a bit confused with the state of the SVN PPA. I've been using XBMC for a long time and the Linux one since it was first compilable. I'm very grateful for the work that has been put in and I feel no sense of entitlement for any sort of support.
To me WTF is no more offensive than RTFM so I guess it never even occurred to me that it could possibly be offensive to anyone.
Thanks for clarifying the current state of the SVN PPA and the availability of newer XBMC builds for Karmic. I look forward to this being resolved and getting to try some of the new features being worked on.

I am updating from the "repository ppa:team-xbmc" (on Ubuntu Lucid). However, I am still stuck with R26018. I thought that the nightlies are up and running again and should be somewhere in the 3xxxxx including addons. Any thoughts?

Read the second post above yours.
PS: SVN builds are only availiable in the "ppa:team-xbmc-svn/ppa" repository.

You are right. I was actually refering to "ppa:team-xbmc-svn". The above posts are not clear to me. Does it imply that there actually still no nightlies more recent than SVN28042?

Yes, we must wait until it is fixed. Alternatively, you can compile xbmc from source code or download an unofficial nightly build (search google).

Yes, but unfortunately it is incapable of playing many m4v files smoothly. I wouldn't even have remembered to try a newer build if not for this.

Anybody try the new SVN build from the SVN PPA? Is it safe to install?
