Hey would love to try this pet.

Will this work in lucid 5.2.8?

I have the recomended nvidia drivers installed and it worked in xbmc 10 do I still need to install your divers?

Is there an alternative download link that site tells me I have reached my maximum downloads for today.

Sorry to be a pain

Thanks Andre

Hello Speedyluck

Thanks for providing this. I have been looking for a way to try XBMC with XVBA on a Puppy for some time.

I have set up the SFS version on Lupu 528 and it seems to be working correctly at the first attempt.

The XBMC user interface is pretty incomprehensible so it will take a while before I am sure of what I am doing!

I have tried my two difficult H.264 1920x1080 interlaced DVB TS test recordings, and they both worked perfectly. Nothing else I have tried can do this.

My PC is a Athlon II x2 240 CPU and 785G (RS880G) chipset, and the PC is only taking 46 Watts total wallplug power when playing these videos with XVBA. That is the best yet.

I guess this is from the main development using VAAPI+XVBA. It says 11 pre, Git unknown. Not the latest XBMC-XVBA from FernetMenta and fritsch that does XVBA directly:

Thanks again.

Very nice.

If only Puppy looked as slick as that.

and the ATI driver cured a Xinerama issue I had with a previous version.

All good.
Thanks.

@ Speedyluck

Thanks for the recent Nvidia drivers, I was going to attempt to compile them myself but was a bit stuck.

Added an alternative host for the Nvidia drivers here:

Sub_title: HTPCs - HP Proliant Microservers
 

Hi Everyone
I have been away from here it seems forever. I have 2 projects currently going.
LinuxMint13 - XBMC
Puppy 528 - XBMC (just started)
Both are being installed on the HP Proliant Server N40L
4 x 2TBs drives with 250Gbs for an operating system
Final build is being played around with ie: Graphic Cards which will end up the best.
8GB RAM
Also plan on a pretty old Toshiba Tecra Laptop to do the same.
I have 5 other builds I have done so when I have success all will be posted with Pros/Cons what works best etc.

Getting it to work on the Tecra is a bit of a challenge re the GL drivers.
Will update this post when I have a fully functional Pup working with XBMC !!!
Once that happens I can then incorporate the Astone MP310DT that I use along with my built HTPCs.
Mint13 is giving me some trouble on the HP server so I thought I would go back to my original roots and have a look at what's happening with Puppy. Pleasantly surprised at how far it has come.
Also awaiting my Raspberry PI exciting times ahead. Smile

Cheers
Kazzamozz

PostPosted: Sat 07 Jul 2012, 01:18    Post_subject: Alternate download site required please...  

Could someone please post an alternate site for this XBMC 11.0 pet?

I keep getting messages saying that I'm downloading more than two items at once. Yet, I'm not. I'm just using the File Save As option.

I'd love to try XBMC out on Puppy.

I'm using XBMC with no problem. But I can't find any version, which has PVR support integrated. Is there any PET around? Help.

Hello bbg

BarryK's latest Precise Puppy beta 6 can install XBMC and all of the dependencies, from the Ubuntu Repo, and it does work. So don't try it without a safety net!

But PVR is still the development branch of XBMC, so you would need to find a suitable version on launchpad.net

I have installed XBMC-XVBA variant from the wsnipex PPA there, and it does work, too.

Since this is your first post here, I guess you are new to Puppy. But if you can find something suitable I can tell you how to add the particular PPA to the Puppy Package Manager, by editing the DISTRO_COMPAT_REPOS file, so that you can install it.

I think the PVR branch is updated monthly.

Note: I don't use XBMC myself, I was only testing out the PPM in Precise Puppy.

Hello

Thanks for replay. I will install Precise Puppy. How to add PPA to depositary?
I will use ppa:pulse-eight/pulse. I'm just trying to build my HTPC, and I come over to Puppy. It is awsome and I love it.

PostPosted: Tue 18 Sep 2012, 09:14    Post_subject: Adding Launchpad PPA to Precise PPM  

Hello bbg

To add a PPA to the Package Manager you need to give it the following information, in a specific format:

1: The domain name of the server

2: The full path of the Packages file (which may be text, .gz or .bz2, (it doesn't matter for a PPA as it's small)

3: The first part of the path to the installation files, that is not specified in the Packages file.

4: The title you want for the repo


To get this, open the PPA web page in a browser. Click on "technical details of repo", select "Precise" in the drop down box.

The path it gives is the answer to 3: and you can take 1: from it as well.

To find 2: click on the link and then navigate down the tree until you get to the Packages file. In your case its this:

http://ppa.launchpad.net/pulse-eight/pulse/ubuntu/dists/precise/main/binary-i386/Packages

That is the answer to 2:, but I used Packages.bz2 because that was what the other entries in the package manager had.


Next you need to edit the file /root/.packages/DISTRO_COMPAT_REPOS to add the information. So make a backup copy and then open DISTRO_COMPAT_REPOS in a text editor. It's a bit difficult to follow because there are two very long lines of data. But there are some words desribing what each line consists of.

The first line is 1:|2:|4: and the second is 1:|3:|4: So in your case they are:

ppa.launchpad.net|http://ppa.launchpad.net/pulse-eight/pulse/ubuntu/dists/precise/main/binary-i386/Packages.bz2|Packages-XBMC-Pulse8

ppa.launchpad.net|http://ppa.launchpad.net/pulse-eight/pulse/ubuntu|Packages-XBMC-Pulse8

Copy and Paste at the end of each relevant line of existing data, but after a space and before the "

Save the file.

Open Package Manager and select: "Configure" and then "update". When it asks, you can skip all of the repos apart from Launchpad, the Ubuntu ones take a long time to process.

When that is finished, restart the Package Manager and select "configure" choose the 3 Ubuntu repos, your Launchpad repo and uncheck the rest. Restart Package Manager.

Select your Launchpad repo on the title bar.

Enter XBMC in the search box and let it search the Launchpad repo. It will display the list of packages there.

Now you are in normal Puppy territory. Get it to download XBMC and its dependencies.

If you click on XBMC - architecture independend data, it will probably pick up xbmc-bin as a dependency.

The Package Manager will search all of the repos for the dependencies, so there will be duplicates in the list. You need to uncheck the ones you don't want. For example, it will find xbmc-bin on Ubuntu Universe and on launchpad. You need to uncheck the Ubuntu one.

I think that XBMC may require 24bit colour, but Puppy defaults to 16 bit. I'm not sure, but that was the last thing I changed before it started working.

If XBMC does not run from its menu entry, find xbmc.bin and run it from the command line and see what errors you get. Also look for the xbmc logfile.

I have written this from memory, apart from the launchpad paths. And I hope I haven't missed any vital steps.
