WORK IN PROGRESS, PLEASE AMEND


As I can't find a decent overview of how to get XBMC working on the Raspberry Pi without resorting to downloading a dedicated image, this page should give everyone a hand getting set up (that is, if I am successful...)

Ways of installing XBMC

Getting XBMC from the repos (doesn't work in Wheezy) Building XBMC on the raspi (takes a long time) Building XBMC on a Windows machine (Qemu)

So far I haven't got it running...

Building XBMC from source using Qemu

Preparation

On Windows, create folder structure like so:

Resize the Raspbian image

Fix raspi-config resize issue with Qemu: cp /usr/bin/raspi-config ~ sed -i 's/mmcblk0p2/sda2/' ~/raspi-config sed -i 's/mmcblk0/sda/' ~/raspi-config sudo ~/raspi-config
