Ubuntu Multimedia :: XBMC Refuses To Update Correctly?

Jan 6, 2010

28/12/2009 I installed Ubuntu minimal AMD64 and followed the following guide to install it as an HTPC using XBMC. Note that that date was after XBMC's 9.11 official release.[URL]...give and take really minor adaptions, since the guide is not entirely 1 on 1. The process installed XBMC Beta 1 though.

Now, when I do:
- sudo apt-get update / upgrade
The result is:
The following packages have been kept back:


libsdl1.2debian-alsa: Conflicts: libsdl1.2debian-pulseaudio but 1.2.13-4ubuntu4 is to be installed.libsdl1.2debian-pulseaudio: Conflicts: libsdl1.2debian-alsa but 1.2.13-4ubuntu4 is installed. sudo aptitude -> g -> results in a list of 45 files which will be automatically removed. Some of these are libvdpau1, pkg-config, pmount, xinit, xserver-common, xserver-xorg, *-core, *-input-all, *-evdev, *-mouse, *-synaptics etc. A lot of which are needed as aptitude reports by the package xbmc-common, which I suppose XBMC needs to operate.

I do not want to "autoremove". I did that before and that resulted in having a corrupted system and hence the new installation of 28/12. Any idea what is wrong? Why wasn't the official release installed and was Beta1 chosen instead? Why does Aptitude propose to have all these necessary packages deleted? And of course, why am I not able to upgrade to XBMC's latest and final version? How can I?

Ubuntu :: Update Manager Refuses To Update?

Sep 1, 2011

I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 - the Natty Narwhal Update Manager shows me that there are 18 updates available for my system. After putting in my password, the updates appear to start, but then I get the message that the updates would "Requires the installation of untrusted packages" and just quits. The first update is for the Document Viewer evince. It is from Ubuntu, yet the Update Manager claims it is an "untrusted package."

Fedora :: X Refuses To Load After Update On 12

Mar 13, 2010

I installed my updates this morning, except for the nss packages which refused to work. So I just installed the other packages and left the nss package. When I rebooted my computer X would not load. I managed to track down an error by typing "startx" from the command line:


symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libXi.so.6: undefined symbol: XESetWireToEventCookie

All I did was update my computer and have not done anything else to the system. Also, I found this: [URL] And I can not but notice that the version of libX11 available from yum is not 1.3.3. Could there have been a packaging error with the updates?

Ubuntu Installation :: FireFox Refuses To Recognize Flash Update

Aug 15, 2010

Firefox refuses to recognize the upgrade--in existing user accounts only! I created a new account & Firefox picked the upgrade right up. I'm ready to reinstall Firefox or start with all new user accounts--but either option seems to be extreme overkill.

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
Firefox 3.6.8
Adobe Flash Player 10.1 r82 (old accounts are stuck at 9.x)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: XBMC Not Connecting To Internet In 10.04?

May 27, 2010

I recently installed XBMC and Boxee on my Linux laptop, but neither of them are connecting to the internet. Since I'd like to try XBMC first, I'll talk about that here. When I run the program, I do not have a Live TV icon or link on the side. I can see my Music, Programs, Settings, Pictures, Video and Weather links on the sidebar, but my Weather page is blank as in I do not see any weather forecasts or whatever else ought to be on that page. I thought that maybe since I was running XBMC as a user there might be some permissions issues, so I ran "sudo xbmc" and received an error message "Do_Wait: DRMWaitBlank returned -1, IRQs Don't Seem to be working correctly. Try adjusting the vBlank_mode configuration parameter." No idea what that means. I've tried connecting both via Ethernet and my WiFi.

The applet goes back to listing the available updates - ie. it doesn't run the update The workaround is to untick the flash player update, run the other updates and then do the flash player update by itself.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Access Files In Second Drive XBMC?

Feb 1, 2010

thought I'd take the plunge and use it as the OS for a new HTPS running XBMC. I installed a second 1TB HDD to use as a media tank that I formatted to NTFS. All is well except I cannot get XBMC to see the second drive. Its mounted and I can access it no worries, but when I go into Videos,> add source, > i'm given the home folder and my network as options, neither of which have the second drive on them.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: XBMC Running Real Slow In 9.10

May 18, 2010

Here's my specs:

AMD Semprom 1.8Ghz
512 MB RAM
Nvidia TNT2 M64 @ 32 MB

I know it's old lol but probably better than the onboard graphics. The computer is a Compaq Presario sr1403wm. I checked proprietary drivers and there are none available. The graphics run smooth on the desktop and I don't have Compiz enabled. is the graphics card just too old for XBMC? Weird thing is, I also have the same problem in Ubuntu on my good desktop when it's connected to my TV. Just using a normal VGA cable. If I have it connected to my computer monitor using a DVI cable, there's no problem. The only thing I thought of was maybe the resolution was too high, but that made no difference with either computer. If this computer is too old for XBMC, what would be second best in line? MythTV? Doesn't need TV capabilities. Just to watch what's already on the computer. I just really like the XBMC interface and the fact that I can boot right into the interface and of course all the cool plugins and whatnot.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Only Getting Stereo Sound Out While Running XBMC?

Jun 10, 2010

Alright, the lifehacker article about this Acer machine got me interested in revisiting XBMC as a media center. I bought the AR1600-U910H from Newegg and have been struggling for a couple of weeks to get it working correctly. I opted to install a full Ubuntu desktop to utilize the hardware fully with a standalone version of XBMC. I am currently running Lucid with NVIDIA 256.25 (was running 195 series) driver. Switched to 256 because I heard it fixes the no multi-channel output problem. However, sadly I can't get multi-channel out to work. I have the HDMI output going through my Onkyo TX-SR608 receiver for both audio and video. My problem is I can only get stereo sound out while running XBMC (or any application for that matter).

I've upgraded Alsa to 1.0.23. I've installed new Beta 256.25 NVIDIA driver. I've configured Alsa about 28 different times. I'm at my wits end. So, my question is - does anybody having a similar setup with the ION chip (or the Acer Aspire Revo in particular) where they can succesfully get HDMI digital audio pass through to a receiver (or at least digital multi channel out)? The best I've gotten is 2 channel audio, which doesn't do a lot of good on a 5.1 setup. If I would have known getting multichannel audio would be so difficult I would have rethought starting this endeavor. I don't care if I have to do a fresh reinstall of everything - if that means a different version Ubuntu so be it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Play DVDs On XBMC

Aug 30, 2010

I regularly use XBMC on my htpc. Everything seems to work just fine except that I cannot watch DVDs with it. It just never detects a DVD. If I insert a DVD with XBMC running, it just lets me browse the files. If I select the video files it plays some of them (depending on the DVD apparently). If I click on the play button it says that no disk is detected. There is nothing that I can see in the log file and seems relevant. I really don't know what to do. The computer is an HP z555. I just modified it by adding more ram and I changed the video card for an NVIDIA 8400GS. It is running Ubuntu Lucid and XBMC 9.11 installed from the PPA repository. The dvds play well with totem, vlc and mplayer

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Not Working (in XBMC) On Server

May 29, 2011

I've been trying for a day to get sounds working on my HTPC which is running Ubuntu Server (Natty) and XBMC from the repositories. I have so far had no luck, with not so much as a peep on any channel - analog, optical or over HDMI.

My setup is a ASUS AT3IONT-I with an Intel Atom CPU. I think this is a common configuration which should not require any special treatment, and I also have a friend with the same hardware and no problems running XBMC on OpenSUSE.

XBMC is installed according to the instructions here [URL] with a user named xbmc etc. It works wonderfully in every aspect except that the sound is missing alltogether.

I've been following [URL] for troubleshooting but have now run out of ideas, which is why I'm asking you.

aplay -l

I tried filling in with all the details I could think of, but if you wish to know something more I'll be glad to provide it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Video On XBMC \videos Have Sound, But No Picture?

Jul 31, 2010

I am having problems: videos have sound, but no picture.I'm using a Gigabyte motherboard with integrated ATI video, and I've read before that XBMC (and Ubuntu in general) don't like ATI too much. Is there any hope left to make XBMC work?I've tried the following:1. Fresh Ubuntu installation, default ATI drivers. Result: when starting a video, audio is okay, but no video. Also, visibly slow graphics even while navigating XBMC menus

2. Installed ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX driver via System->Hardware drivers. Result: significantly accelerated menu navigation, but no video still. Note: having no problems watching videos via VLC or Totem Movie Player (after downloading proper codecs)3. Fresh Ubuntu installation, then downloaded and installed ATI's proprietary Linux drivers from ATI's site (ati-driver-installer-10-7-x86.x86_64.run). Result: yippee, I see some video, but wait: no color!! (all videos are in sepia-like mode)

4. Followed these instructions to install the unofficial ATI drivers. Result: total failure, XBMC won't even start, says something about the need to have proper hardware OpenGL acceleration.System info:GIGABYTE GA-MA785GMT-UD2H AM3 AMD 785G mobo with ATI Radeon HD 4200 onboard graphicsAMD Phenom II X2 550 processor4 gigs of DDR3 RAM Ubuntu Lucid 32 bit (2.6.32-24-generic-pae)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: XBMC Live Install Not Functioning - Video Card ?

Apr 24, 2010

I tried to run the XBMC live disc but could not fully boot. Each time I could only get to a command prompt after the XBMC splash screen with spinning circle. So I thought, "Maybe because my computer is sort of old (Pentium 4, 2.26 Ghz, 512 RAM) it doesn't like the XBMC Live disc. It will probably work if I install to the HDD." I installed it only to get the same result, XBMC splash screen then loading of command prompt. Does anyone know how to fix this? Is the computer compatible?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: XBMC And Blender Game Engine Crashing After Upgrade To 10.10?

Oct 12, 2010

I'm having trouble using Blender and XBMC after upgrading to Ubuntu 10.10. Whenever I start the Game Engine mode in Blender (by pressing 'P'), Blender crashes. This happens both in the repository version (2.49.2) and with the newest version (2.54 beta).

For some reason, xbmc actually starts without problems now, but earlier the console output was somewhat similar to that of Blender. The output from Blender seems to indicate that there is something wrong with either libc6 or the NVIDIA drivers. The xbmc output (which now works ok) mentioned something about /lib/nvidia-current/libGL.so, if I remember correctly.

The output at crash is as follows:

Blender 2.54:

Ubuntu :: Multimedia Center Based On XBMC Live - Cannot Configure Bluetooth?

I assembled a small multimedia center based on XBMC Live (Ubuntu). And cannot configure bluetooth. In older versions of bluez was hcid.conf file, through which I can set options iscan, pscan and lm (link mode). In new versions of bluez 4.xx instead of this file is used main.conf and these parameters there is not provided. How apply these settings to the bluetooth adapter at system startup and when I connect the adapter to the usb port? In general, the system behaves is not clear. Sometimes the adapter after the system is turned on, and sometimes it turns off.
