Gentoo XBMC Pre-Setup

In Gentoo, XBMC on 18/04/2011 by pier0w

There is some extra configuration that is required before XBMC can be installed. This is mostly to do with unmasking some packages and setting up some USE flags.

So first create the /etc/portage/ directory, this is where the unmask, keyword, and use files will go.

Next create the following files:

media-video/mplayer fbcon
x11-base/xorg-server udev
x11-base/xorg-x11 udev opengl
sys-fs/udev extras
sys-auth/pambase consolekit
x11-libs/cairo X
dev-libs/libgcrypt static-libs
dev-libs/libgpg-error static-libs
media-libs/libsdl X opengl
sys-auth/consolekit policykit
sys-block/parted device-mapper
media-tv/xbmc webserver

dev-util/debhelper ~*
app-misc/cwiid ~*
net-libs/libmicrohttpd ~*
media-tv/xbmc ~*


With that done XBMC should now be able to be emerged.
