It should have started automatically after installing xbmc helpers. Can you locate /etc/init.d/xbmc-live?

I could not find it. So i reinstalled the package and now i get xbmc to work. But with no sound. (as usual)

I have tried numerous installations of ubunto 9.04 and i have only once got sound though hdmi to work. That was with a live cd-version. And the only thing i had to do is go into system - sound and change from default to hdmi. And then digital-output.

But lets focus on this script shall we.

As above. No sound. I install the small ubuntu-file and then i wget the xmcscript.sh. Press 3 for ASrock optimization and then 1 for installation.

When its all done xbmc launches. No sound. I change from analog to digital, and then from default - hdmi in the settings.

Start a mkv-file. No sound. I go in the sound and subtitle-settings and then from analog to digital. Still no dice.

And yes i get sound in Windows :mad:

Ideas?

Did you check the ALSA settings to see if it aint muted?

sudo alsamixer

Oh. I forgot to type that. alsamixer does popup during installation and the channel is not muted.

I have also exited xbmc when the sound did not work. Run the #3 option (ion hdmi sound fix) and also alsamixer again to see that the channel is unmuted.

Are you using the Minimal CD or the complete Ubuntu disc including the GNOME graphic environment? What kind of machine is it? Asrock ION? If not, what soundcard do you got? Have you tried audio output over optical or are you only using HDMI?

Code:
09-16-2009:
- Added an interactive skin prompt for choosing skins
- Added Alaska and Aeon Temmi as choices

There is now a extra option called "Edit Skin Choices". This will allow you to add extra skins after the initial skin choice.
Press option 9 to update XBMScript to retrieve new functionalities.
Then choose to Update System to download the latest skin updates and/or new skins.

Also, please let me know if you have any problems. I didn't had the time to fully check everything.

maybe u can add the ALSA (1.0.21) update aswell?

code:

sudo su
killall Xorg
killall xbmc.bin
apt-get -y install build-essential ncurses-dev gettext xmlto linux-headers-`uname -r`
wget ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/driver/al...21.tar.bz2
wget ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/lib/alsa-...1a.tar.bz2
wget ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/utils/als...21.tar.bz2
tar xjf alsa-driver*
tar xjf alsa-lib*
tar xjf alsa-utils*
cd alsa-driver*
./configure
make
make install
cd ../alsa-lib*
./configure
make
make install
ln -s libpanelw.so.5 /usr/lib/libpanelw.so
ln -s libformw.so.5 /usr/lib/libformw.so
ln -s libmenuw.so.5 /usr/lib/libmenuw.so

That is a possibility but I assume that the Ubuntu deb packages will be updated soon. Might be better to wait on those instead of manually compiling?

Anyway, I added it as a hidden option, update XBMScript and enter "alsa" to start its installation.

Regards,

Dennis

Have you tried manual compilation? I also see:

Try the following to create a clean xorg.conf:
Code:
nvidia-xconfig -s --no-logo --force-generate

What kind of hardware are you using?
