1. Introduction

A gfx-adapter with OpenGL acceleration is highly recommended and 24/32 bitdepth
is required with OpenGL.

NOTE TO NEW LINUX USERS: All lines that are prefixed with the '$'
character are commands that need to be typed into a terminal window /
console (similar to the command prompt for Windows). Note that the '$'
character itself should NOT be typed as part of the command.

2. Getting the source code

You will have to grab the source code of course. First install the subversion
package provided by your distribution. Then from a terminal, type:

   $ cd $HOME
   $ svn checkout xbmc

3. Installing the required libraries and headers

You will then need the required libraries. The following is the list of packages
that are used to build XBMC packages on Debian/Ubuntu (with all supported
external libraries enabled).

Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 7.0.50), quilt, python-support, cmake,
 autotools-dev, autoconf, automake, unzip, libboost-dev,
 libgl1-mesa-dev | libgl-dev, libglu-dev, libglew-dev, libmad0-dev, libjpeg-dev,
 libsamplerate-dev, libogg-dev, libvorbis-dev, libvorbisenc2, libfreetype6-dev,
 libfontconfig-dev, libbz2-dev, libfribidi-dev, libsqlite3-dev,
 libmysqlclient-dev, libasound-dev, libpng-dev, libpcre3-dev, liblzo2-dev,
 libcdio-dev, libsdl-dev, libsdl-image1.2-dev, libsdl-mixer1.2-dev, libenca-dev,
 libjasper-dev, libxt-dev, libxtst-dev, libxmu-dev, libxinerama-dev, libcurl3,
 libcurl4-openssl-dev | libcurl-dev, libdbus-1-dev, libhal-storage-dev,
 libhal-dev, libpulse-dev, libavahi-common-dev, libavahi-client-dev,
 libxrandr-dev, libavcodec-dev, libavformat-dev, libavutil-dev, libpostproc-dev,
 libswscale-dev, liba52-dev, libdts-dev, libfaad-dev, libmp4ff-dev,
 libmpeg2-4-dev, libass-dev, libflac-dev, libwavpack-dev,
 python-dev, gawk, gperf, nasm [!amd64], libcwiid1-dev, libbluetooth-dev,
 zlib1g-dev, libmms-dev, libsmbclient-dev, libtiff4-dev, libiso9660-dev, libssl-dev,
 libmicrohttpd-dev, libmodplug-dev, libssh-2-dev, gettext, cvs

*** For developers and anyone else who compiles frequently it is recommended to
use ccache

3.1. Using the XBMC PPA to get all build dependencies (Debian/Ubuntu only)

For this, you need to specify the PPA in your apt sources. Please find them on
the forum.

Update apt:
   $ sudo apt-get update

Here is the magic command to get the build dependencies (used to compile the
version on the PPA).
   $ sudo apt-get build-dep xbmc

4. How to compile

To create the XBMC executable manually perform these steps:

.0  $ ./bootstrap

.1  $ ./configure <option1> <option2> ... (See --help for available options)

A full listing of supported options can be viewed by typing
'./configure --help'.

.2  $ make

Tip: by adding -j<number> to the make command, you describe how many
     concurrent jobs will be used. So for dualcore the command is: 

    $ make -j2

.3  $ make install

This will install XBMC in the prefix provided in 4.1 as well as a launcher script.

NOTE: You may need to run this with sudo (sudo make install) if your user
doesn't have write permissions to the prefix you have provided (as in the
default case, /usr/local).

Tip: To override the location that XBMC is installed, use PREFIX=<path>.
For example.

    $ make install PREFIX=$HOME/xbmc

5. How to run
How to run xbmc depends on the type of installation you have done. It is
possible to run XBMC without the requirement to install xbmc anywhere else. In
this case, type the following from the top source directory.

    $ ./xbmc.bin

If you chose to install XBMC using '/usr' or '/usr/local' as the PREFIX, you
can just issue 'xbmc' in a teminal session.

If you overridden PREFIX to install XBMC into some non-standard location, you
will have to run xbmc by directly running 'xbmc.bin'. For example.

    $ $HOME/xbmc/usr/share/xbmc.bin

If you wish to use VDPAU decoding you will now have to change the Render Method
in Settings->Videos->Player from "Auto Detect" to "VDPAU".

6. Uninstalling
Issue "make uninstall"  ("sudo make uninstall" if you user doesn't have write
permission to the install directory) from your source tree. If you would like
to also remove any settings and 3rd party addons (skins, scripts, etc) you
should also run "rm -rf ~/.xbmc".

NOTE: If you have rerun configure with a different prefix, you will either need
to rerun configure with the correct prefix for this step to work correctly.
