Alright. I'm still working on getting xbmc to use system libs instead of the internal libs included with the xbmc source. I've had a setback with ffmpeg where I had to drop back to using the internal libs for ffmpeg. I haven't gotten around to fixing this. As with the FHS issue, I think this will be a trivial fix anyway so once xbmc uses system libs, then an upload to Debian will surely follow soon. For anyone wondering, there's a 99.9% chance there won't be an upload for the release of XBMC 9.04 to Debian. :-( > Thanks a lot, > > Paul > > >  http://xbmc.org/forum/showthread.php?t=33327 > >  https://edge.launchpad.net/~team-xbmc-svn/+archive/ppa > >  http://xbmc.org/blog/2009/04/23/xbmc-904-babylon-beta-1-released/ -- Regards, Andres
