Problem solved. I did follow the guide, but somehow I missed the step where you run alsamixer and Unmute the three IEC958 modes(?).
Anyway, I did that and it's all working, thanks

I decided to give the x64 version a go and everything is working fine except blue tooth. My wiimote keeps connecting and disconnecting every few seconds and then i press the up and down buttons it scrolls 3 lines at a time. If I tap the up and down button real fast it will scroll one line at a time. Anyone have any idea on what could cause this?
Its not just the up and down buttons it is all of them. It is like the wiimote is running in turbo.

Ok .... alright .....
But how the **** do I revert the ALSA upgrade (pardom my French )!
The Creative (X-fi) driver won't work with this version of ALSA. I've tried everything (tried all suggested methods I could find with google) but I keep getting the following error when trying to reinstall the Creative driver...

I'm getting a very significant flickering when I shut down. It looks like the white on black and XBMC image that is shown during startup. It's bouncing up and down rapidly. I shot a short video, you can see it here: http://www.majorheadache.com/flicker.avi
Doesn't seem to affect functionality, but doesn't seem right either. It did this first connected straight to an LCD PC monitor, and also on my projector through a receiver.

Same here. This is caused by the shutdown splash, which is not displaying correctly. I couldn't find out the reason yet.
No keyboard and mouse - neptun237 - 2009-02-18 20:07
Hello, i followed the Guide and it seems to work fine. Only thing I change was, to use the Intel driver for my graphic card.
So XBMC start but my keyboard is not working. In the terminal it works. Any idea?

Thanks for this guide! I'm following along pretty well for the most part..
For this step, "If you wish to enable CPU scaling, install the required packages as the following, but don’t forget to enable it in the BIOS as well."
Where do I enable it in the BIOS? I'm using the ASUS P5N7A-VM motherboard.

Look for Intel speedstep something...

Used the guide for Hardy, and was able to get XBMC up and running, Thanks so much for putting this together!
Power Management Section
command # sudo wget http://188.8.131.52/xbmc/PolicyKit.conf -O /etc/PolicyKit/PolicyKit.conf
errors with the following in Hardy
/etc/PolicyKit/PolicyKit.conf: No such file or directory
Same error for No such file or directory when issuing the wget
I think you should put the path to advancedsettings.xml as new users might not know where to find it at first.
Thermal and GPU monitoring do not seem to be working in Hardy. sensors -u shows info but xbmc displays ?
