XBMC amd64 incomplete on Launchpad!? How come?

03. May 2010, hepi - PVR@XBMC

It happens from time to time - for example today: amd64 users are confused when they get an error message on installing the latest amd64 packages of XBMC-PVR-Testing from the hepi/yaVDR PPA via apt:

xbmc-data: Depends: xbmc-bin (< pvr-testing-32~hepi-lucid29507.1~) but pvr-testing-33~hepi-lucid29722 is to be installed

The reason for this is that Launchpad has finished building the amd64 packages before the i386 packages were built. How can that be a problem? Some of the packages that XBMC consists of, are marked as platform independent. This means, they only have to be built once and can be used on both platforms, be it i386 or amd64. Launchpad builds those packages marked as platform independent during the i386 build and ignores them during the amd64 build.

yaVDR covered in article of German PC Magazin

10. February 2010, hepi - yaVDR

The current issue of German PC Magazin (03/2010) contains an article about setting up a HTPC with VDR and XBMC. The author, Jörg Knitter, has kindly chosen the yaVDR project as an example on how to quickly get a VDR system with HDTV running. The German title of the article is "XXL: Perfekter HTPC mit VDR und XBMC". We are very happy about this positive reception of the yaVDR project within the press.

Update: The full article is now available on the magazines' website.

yaVDR 0.1 - our first release

15. January 2010, hepi - yaVDR

Today, we are proud to announce the release of version 0.1 which is our first release ever. You can download it in the form of an ISO image. It is far away from trouble-free usage, but it already works quite well. We recommend to only use it for testing purposes, it is not stable. Since this first release has a few bugs regarding international language settings, we recommend only to use it if you plan to select German language during installation. Within our next ISO release, these bugs will be fixed.
