I've installed XBMC 10.1 (Dharma) using the PPA package under Ubuntu 10.10.

If I want to test out the PVR branch, I know I need to compile it (which isn't a problem) but how can I run the stable release (from the PPA package) alongside the PVR release?

Is this possible?

You don't need to compile it, install it.
Repo's etc here:

Thanks! However, I'm wondering if it's possible to install both versions side-by-side... (ie. Dharma plus Eden-PVR, etc)

your dbs (music, video) won't be in sync because the db layouts are different.

Found a problem with PVR? Report it on Trac, under "PVR - core components". Please attach the full debug log.

Couldn't I run them each in portable mode?

like I said, they won't be in sync. so if you add something to your library in dharma, it won't be there in pvr/eden (and the other way around)
