Exclamation  Urgent Help Required
Post: #1
I am running xbmc eden beta 3 everything was fine until today. The problem I am having is the sytems is switching its self off less than 5 minutes after boot I suspect its to do with this:

Quote:14:34:30 T:9895360 ERROR: XLCDproc::Connect - Unable to connect to host, LCDd not running?
14:34:30 T:9895360 ERROR: XLCDproc::Initialize - Connect failed. Giving up.

I found the above information at the very bottom of the crash log can anyone give me any info on how I can resolve this.

Many thanks

Need details. The more details the better. What OS are you using this on? Has XBMC ever worked on this computer (as in, is this a new problem)? is this a totally fresh install?

Also, need debug log

You can make easy links to the XBMC wiki using double brackets around words: [[debug log]] = debug log, [[Add-on:YouTube]] = Add-on:YouTube, [[Adding videos to the library]] = Adding videos to the library, [[userdata]] = userdata, etc

I think you have other issues... Do you see a home page after launch?

More specifics... that a proper debug would provide, posted on pastebin.com

first of all you should update when you have problems with development builds. rc2 is out.
xbmc has got nothing to do with your sftp transfers, other software is responsible for this.
so it´s very likely that your errors aren´t xbmc related (that also explains why it worked before)

Are you using XBMC Live (aka XBMCbuntu)?

I thought what I had was the latest can I update from the sytem or do I need to do fresh install

sudo apt-get install xbmc should do the trick in terminal

I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.

go to system--system info it will list your build there, what do you have listed?

system info "build:11.0-BETA3" it does not matter now I have just decided to install fresh windows as much as I hate windows but if it means I can always have the latest version of xbmc then I supose it worth it

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xbmc
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

pulled form here http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Ins..._for_Linux

did that with mine to install the unstable ppa works like a charm no need to go with windows

then all you would need to do to upgrade would be the command i mentioned earler

sudo apt-get install xbmc
