Installation Instructions for XBM

A short and sweet install guide for XVMC Beta 1 "Atlantis"for AppleTV Take2

Note: There is another guide which uses ATV USB Creator and a Patchstick: http://xbmc.org/wiki/?title=XBMC_for_Mac_on_Apple_TV


Actual Instructions

SSH 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)

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
