looking for xbmc 10.0


The title says it all: I'm looking for a slackbuild of the latest release of xbmc 10.0. All my attempts to use the existing slackbuild (for xbmc 9.10) to compile the 10.0 version have failed. Thanks.

How do they fail? What error message do you get? If no updated SlackBuild exists, it may be easier to just fix it on your own. Depending on the error, the problem might not even be with the SlackBuild, but with the system you are trying to build on.

The latest version is 9.11 which has a 13.1 slackbuild.

Are you wanting to build from SVN?

buliding on current-64-multilib. It failed with an error about missing library but I couldn't find anything informative enough for me in the config.log
I attached the config.log.

Found the culprits: libmicrohttpd and libmodplug are new dependencies that I was missing.

That made it easy for me! Install the dependencies, simple edit of the slackbuild, then off to the races.

In my new updated xbmc.SlackBuild I only have libmodplug as a required dependency. libmicrohttpd is an option that is turned off by default. Giving '--disable-webserver' to configure turns off the libmicrohttpd requirement.

@escaflown: I noticed you are using Slackware64 on -current. It looks like the lib64 patch is no longer needed as I had to update it for the new version. If so, I'd like to delete that patch as I don't have a x86_64 computer to test it out on. Also, it would be nice to know if the extra includes could be removed as well since they are also only needed for x86_64 computers.

A new version of the script should be made available sometime after New Year's.

One of the "simple edits" I did was commenting out everything in the patch section. I did not comment out the extra includes.

Thank you for that info. I want to get rid of redundant stuff and simplify it as best I can.

If anybody has a chance on x86_64, can they build it without the extra includes?

@larryhaja: Thanks for your hard work. I didn't have to turn on the lib64 patch when compiling it. Actually, I commented out all the patches that were used for 9.10. I was able to compile with all the extra options enable (on the condition that all the needed dependencies are installed) without any problem on a box running slackaware64-current-multilib.

Edit: I just successfully recompiled the 10.0 on my slackware64-current-multilib box without the extra includes.

I just uploaded it to SBo a couple days ago. It is still in pending.
