Hi Guys.

I have installed the latest live cd then did the following.... to get the pvr branch.

sudo apt-get install -y python-software-properties
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lars-opdenkamp/xbmc-pvr
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y install xbmc

After a reboot I can not longer get to xbmc, i can only log into the command prompt using ctrl + alt +f1.

Any idea what log to look at or why this might happen, I am using a Revo 3700.

I have tried to reinstall the nvidia drivers, just incase..

Cheers,
Neil

ok figured this out:

You have to go to: https://launchpad.net/~alexandr-surkov/+...ld/2457380
then manually download the packages:

wget https://launchpad.net/~alexandr-surkov/+...k_i386.deb

wget https://launchpad.net/~alexandr-surkov/+...ck_all.deb

wget https://launchpad.net/~alexandr-surkov/+...ck_all.deb

after that install them by using command: dpkg -i package_file_name.deb
I do not remember the order now

this will revert your xbmc-live to the older working version

if you're running maverick, lucid or karmic: wait for odk36 that will arrive later today. something went wrong with dependencies, resulting in failing xbmc-live installations on those ubuntu versions.

odk 36 isn't available.

Mochu - your workaround worked perfectly thanks.

packages are being built now. remove the workaround and upgrade to the latest version as soon as it's available.

Will this have the updated code for the VNSI addon? As mentioned here?

Just updated to odk 36 and it is happening again.

Are we sure this build fixes the issue or is this user error?

Thanks

I tested the build and it installed xbmc-live properly on a clean lucid install here. what do you see on the console when you try to upgrade?

I could see it install the latest odk 36 then no errors look like it installed ok.

I just ran these commands..

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y install xbmc

I fixed it by doing

sudo apt-get -y install xbmc-live

Thanks for the help

but you said you're running xbmc-live, which got uninstalled with the previous (bad) upgrade.

this should fix it:
Code:
sudo apt-get install xbmc-live

edit: crosspost Smile
