I really want to test it
I know xbmc freak tested it
i dont know why he didn't post a image
does anyone have an image
i dont want create an disk dump (dd) image for usb sticks, because of problems with various disk sizes of this sticks (see for example this thread: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=74992
i also know that OpenELEC.tv is not easy to install for Windows users because they using an very limited OS :-). Because i know this, i will let you know that i am working on an installer, so you can easily self create an Install USB stick to install OpenELEC on the Harddrive or an other USB stick/ Flashcard.
For advanced users under linux:
- take an usb stick
- delete the partition from usb stick
- create 2 partitions on this usb stick (one 128MB, second the rest)
- format the first partition with ext3 or vfat (with label support (label=System))
- format the second partition with ext3 or ext4 (with label support (label=Storage))
- install syslinux to the first partition if you use vfat or extlinux if you use ext3 for the first partition:
sudo syslinux -d / /dev/sdb1
sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/
sudo extlinux -i /mnt/ /
copy the two files (KERNEL and SYSTEM) from /target directory from downloaded image (download from http://www.openelec.tv
) to the root of the first partition from USB-Stick
create an file syslinux.conf (if you use syslinux) or extlinux.conf (if you use extlinux) to the first partition of the usb stick:
append boot=LABEL=System disk=LABEL=Storage debugging quiet
boot from this stick
NOTE: be carefully with formating and partitioning devices! here i use /dev/sdb* for the USB stick device!!!
