As a long time lurker, I've followed this thread with interest as this is a function I've been waiting for.Tried to compile from git://github.com/vajonam/xbmc.git. Compile goes ok with no errors, however when I try and run the xbmc app with --server --no-test Im still getting a failure to start as it is still looking for x display

Am I missing something?

any help greatly appreciated.

You have to checkout the server branche of his GIT repo.

well, i've got some good news, and some bad news:

https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/890

in essence, it's looking like this code of ours won't be merged into mainline. however, the reason for that appears to be that they're breaking out functionality into a library and creating a headless xbmc version instead, which is (ultimately) the long-term goal, and the way that i wanted it to happen in the first place, but didn't have the skills to do myself. it's available here, apparently:

https://github.com/theuni/xbmc/tree/shared-lib

i've not pulled it down to try it out myself as of yet to see if it's fully functional, but i plan to do so as soon as i get the opportunity and see if it does what it says on the tin. if this is the case, then i'd suggest all start using the hell out of it as it's the holy grail we were all looking for Smile

Thanks for the quick reply

Hmmmm not sure, I'm fairly new to git I used git clone git://github.com/vajonam/xbmc.git

Guessing that's wrong?

Thanks

once you've got the master, you'll need to 'git branch -a' to list the branches, and then 'git checkout -t <branch>' to get the branch, iirc. if that's not quite right, the google the syntax to retrieve the branch.

Hi Guys.

Firstly, thanks to you guys for your hard work Smile

I'm new to all of this (Linux and XBMC included) and for the last week I have gone from only ever using basic stuff on Ubuntu Desktop, to setting up Ubuntu Server with Samba, Auto mounting of hard drives and raid, and a few other things. It's been a bit of a steep learning curve for me so far (although this may be easy for you guys Tongue ) but it's been done. I also installed an LXDE GUI for some of the stuff where I thought a GUI would be easier, but I only switch on the GUI when I need it and then terminate it after, no auto start on the GUI Tongue

However, I've hit a wall reading this entire thread ... I've gotten very lost as to how to implement this. I still do need to implement the XBMC MySQL thing, which I found a tutorial for, but haven't had the chance to yet.

I would really appreciate if someone here could give me a quick rundown on how to set this up. I'm not sure how to use the content on https://github.com/vajonam/xbmc/tree/Eden-Server ?

This is the tutorial I plan to use for the MySQL: http://www.howtogeek.com/75535/how-to-sy...with-xbmc/

Will this fix work with the setup I will create with this tutorial? I don't see why it wouldn't though?

Any help for a complete noob would be much appreciated Smile

Thanks

Regards

Itai

See https://github.com/vajonam/xbmc/blob/Ede...DME.ubuntu

At step 2./
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
2. Getting the source code
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

# sudo apt-get install git-core
# cd $HOME
# git clone git://github.com/xbmc/xbmc.git xbmc

change "git clone git://github.com/xbmc/xbmc.git xbmc" by "git clone https://github.com/vajonam/xbmc.git"
then change dir to proper folder and:
"git checkout -t Eden-Server"

Then follow instructions

Hi There.

I seem to be having trouble, and want to check with you guys what I am doing wrong.

Here is what I have done, in order:
# sudo apt-get install git-core
# cd $HOME
# git clone https://github.com/vajonam/xbmc.git .xbmc
# cd .xbmc
# git checkout -t Eden-Server

The following is the response I get:
"fatal: Missing branch name; try -b"

why would you want the $HOME/.xbmc to be hidden Smile

Check the GIT syntax. Perhaps it's not correct?
