Are you using osx or linux on the atv? Because I don't have a machine with osx.

You didn't compile boblight with X11 support, the configure script will say what's missing.

xserver is installed.. but startx gives this output:
Code:
xauth:  error in locking authority file /home/mikko/.Xauthority
xauth:  error in locking authority file /home/mikko/.Xauthority


Fatal server error:
Server is already active for display 0
        If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock
        and start again.


Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support
         at http://wiki.x.org
for help.

giving up.
xinit:  Resource temporarily unavailable (errno 11):  unable to connect to X server
xinit:  No such process (errno 3):  Server error.
xauth:  error in locking authority file /home/mikko/.Xauthority

Im am noob with linux so i followed these instructions when i installed xbmc. So im not allways sure what i install to linux Big Grin. Im using Arduiono microcontroller to control my led stripes so i didnt do every step what is in the first post. So maybe i missed something.

If you can see XBMC, you're running an X server.

Can anyone fill me in on the size of the wallwasher? My TV is mounted on the wall and i'm wondering where to put the wallwasher.

Besides that: I use a 5mtr HDMI cable to get from the HTPC to the TV. Can I use a same size USB cable?

Final one: seems to me only the wallwasher is used, not the side towers. Is that correct?

Hi!

I'm also interested if this will work with ATV and linux on it? Is someone using such a working setup?
