I've noticed that some of the rtmpdump-dependant addons for XBMC 11.0 have been written for rtmpdump-2.4 rather than 2.3 (the unofficial Hulu and Free Cable addons in particular). These addons won't run unless rtmpdump is upgraded, or rather will run, but won't retrieve content.

There's no slackbuild yet for rtmpdump 2.4. And 2.4 source hasn't been placed yet in the archive at but current code apparently needs to be gotten with a git pull.

So for XBMC functionality with these addons requiring rtmpdump-2.4, it appears that the slackbuild compile of rtmpdump needs to be upgraded with current 2.4 source, or the slackbuild rtmpdump package can be upgraded with the rtmpdump-2.4 package provided by the SlaXBMC project, which was the course I took and it seems to run fine.

If any version of rtmpdump was installed prior to the XBMC slackbuild having been run, then simply upgrading rtmpdump to 2.4 is sufficient. But if no version of rtmpdump was installed at the time when the slackbuild script for XBMC 11.0 was initially run, then the script will need to be run again after rtmpdump-2.4 is installed to enable 2.4 support in the compiled xbmc package.

Followed this thread and downloaded/installed the latest, but getting this error when starting:-

XBMC needs hardware accelerated OpenGL rendering.
Install an appropriate graphics driver.
But I am running the ATI drivers as can be seen here:-

name of display: :0
display: :0  screen: 0
direct rendering: No (If you want to find out why, try setting LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose)
server glx vendor string: ATI
server glx version string: 1.4
Any idea where I look to solve?

I don't use XBMC so I wasn't aware of its dependency to rtmpdump from git (there's no 2.4 release, as you can see on its site).

Said that, I already have available a build script for it and I'm using here on -current with no problems

If there are no objections, I'll submit it to

As a side note I got PLEX working ok in current slack32 vbox vm, serves up content to roku.

I think I just installed their download and didn't have to do any dependency.

I'm interested in XBMC too, I'm going to give it a try.

Got this working here. My issues were surrounding the ati drivers. Uninstall and reinstall did the trick.

Just getting to grips now with this new version having been used to the previous one. Not spotted much difference so far. Just got to get album thumbnails working now.
