Don't use notepad.
To make a script it is quite simple.
First download SSH for your windows pc.
Or use the terminal in Ubuntu for example: ssh -p 22 username@ip
You can also use nano.
sudo nano /home/xbmc/XBMC-build_git.sh
copy/past the code and hit ctrl+O to save.
then follow the rest of the steps.

+1 - this is how I do it; I use nano as a lightweight editor.
@Rumik - it sounds like the script just isn't running properly for you - you can download it already turned into a script from my post here:
just follow the directions there.
Also, what distro are you using? I didn't test the script on any distro other than LIVE installed to a drive - other distros may be different and need some tweaking.

boyskters script was part of a combined effort, please read original post. where the topic starter should have posted his information, because of below info.

yes look at commit
ppl cant build doesn't mean its script or how-to compile instructions.
ppl assume way too much and dont post properly informed posts, this cause users to get more confused. just reading this whole topic makes me cringe.
Please dont litter forums with unnecessary posts just because xbmc needs to be a particular version for a particular skin to work, confuses ppl like rumik and t2ffn cause they dont know linux had they read the original post the concerns about
Quote:"I dont want to destroy a perfectly good xbmc installand other comments rae answered and sorted on original post.
This entire topic and issues could have been avoided by proper informed posting, and why building breaks sometimes in trunk.
As the git commit shows above when you cant compile goto IRC and ask if trunk is building ok 9/10 times if building in Linux is broken bet is developers know about it. if they going to fix it or not idk.
As for credit due for original poster please read the whole post where script is and follow up there.

Yeah, i have no idea what you just said.
Boykster - thanks for the file, but I tried it and I'm still getting the same problem. I'm running 10.1 Live.
Anyone have any other ideas about how I could get this working?

I don't understand why you're so upset. I made a good faith effort to link back to the original post so people can follow up and check for similar issues, hell i even included comments in the script itself pointing back to the original post - there's no way i could have made it any clearer.
The reason i reposted it here was because i needed to a nightly build to get this skin working and took a lot of searching to find out how to get it. I assumed that a lot of other users were probably in the same boat (trying to install alaska) and thought i would make it more accessible by posting the link and simplified instructions here.
I appreciate your work and i'm sorry for not giving the right credit - it wasn't malicious, i just didn't know and i never tried to pass it off as my own work.
Regarding not knowing linux, people learn by actually doing the work. They might fuss with vi for a while but in the end it's a learning experience. No one should be using nightly builds if they expect a package that's a 100% wrapped up and ready to go. Now if we can stop clogging the post with credit related info and actually help some people.
ps: just edited the original post to include a a link to original thread in bold red on the first line.

Tried to use this script.
It seems to get most of the way through, but then fails as per Rumik's post on the first page...
