Hi guys,

Having trouble since running the install_xbmc.sh script on a fresh install of XBMC live going from 10.1 up to Eden. It looks like X can't start, presumably as it appears to be trying to run this command:


/usr/bin/xbmc --standalone

I'm trying to find out where this is coming from but i have no idea! In Xorg logs it just repeats saying closing evdev:


(II) No input driver/identifier specified (ignoring)
(II) Power Button: Close
(II) UnloadModule: "evdev"
(II) Power Button: Close
(II) UnloadModule: "evdev"
(II) Logitech Inc. iFeel Mouse : Close
(II) UnloadModule: "evdev"
(II) iMON PAD IR Mouse (15c2:ffdc): Close
(II) UnloadModule: "evdev"
(II) IR-receiver inside an USB DVB receiver: Close
(II) UnloadModule: "evdev"
(II) AT Translated Set 2 keyboard: Close
(II) UnloadModule: "evdev"
(II) Macintosh mouse button emulation: Close
(II) UnloadModule: "evdev"
ddxSigGiveUp: Closing log


Any ideas? I've tried re-installing xbmc-live but no beef! Thanks!
Update, just found this interesting error in .xsession-errors:


/usr/lib/xbmc/xbmc.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libva-0.31.1.1.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Xsession: X session started for xbmc at Mon Apr 2 19:28:11 BST 2012


going to investigate now!
I think i answered my own question, looks like if you run this it fixes it:

apt-get install libva-x11-1 libva1-dbg libva1

Not sure why they weren't there already or if i needed all of them though but it seems to work now Smile hurrah.

might be missing in my packaging script. I'll check
