XBMC for AppleTV Take2 http://xbmc.org/forum/showthread.php?t=37345
Instalation Instructions XBMC for Mac (beta1) is now released, here's the short and sweet to install;
Requirements: AppleTV at r2.1, ssh and NitoTV installed. (see http://wiki.awkwardtv.org/wiki/Main_Page)
The AppleTV need read/write enabled for OSBoot, (search the awkwardtv wiki for readwrite).
under a ssh login into the AppleTV
installer -pkg XBMC.mpkg -target /
Ignore the message about installation failing, a perl post-install script has failed to run because perl is missing
This installs ;
make a sym link from /Applications to ~/Applications so NitoTV app launcher can see it
ln -s /Applications/XBMC.app /Users/Frontrow/Applications.XBMC.app
Launch it under NitoTV
setting-> appearance-> resolution and pick the one with (FullScreen)
XBMC for Mac OS X 0.1 has been released.
- For Leopard and Intel only.
Attempts to get it running as-is on safe updated 1.1 ATV have come up short. Of course, this is to be expected,
Here's the error in CrashReporter.log:
Library not loaded: /opt/local/lib/libiconv.2.dylib Referenced from: /mnt/Scratch/Users/frontrow/Applications/XBMC.app/Contents/Mac OS/XBMC Reason: Incompatible library version: XBMC requires version 7.0.0 or later, but libiconv.2.dylib provides version 5.0.0
Obviously, as it isn't a Tiger compatible release, it's doubtful we'll get it working in its current binary release but there's always the possibility of a Leopard-based Take2 update to the AppleTV, or a Tiger-compatible release of XBMC.
I expect some cleanup to this article as this might get more interesting as XBMC on Mac OS X development continues. Just adding my trials and tribulations. Maraklov 09:35, 5 February 2008 (CET)
