View Full Version : openSUSE success!
November 6th, 2008, 12:05 PM
I'm psyched to report openSUSE success! I've posted all the steps on my blog here:
Next step is to see about making an openSUSE package, which is something I'm not too familiar with but have been meaning to find out. And yes, Hulu and Comedy Central, etc all show up. The key was to get a "real" Boxee installation. Not sure if this will help my Dell Mini though.

Well, not exactly. I do have it running under openSUSE but there was some path confusion so it took me a couple of days to figure it out. Turns out the files in the system/players/flashplayer in the source tarball are not the same as the ones found in the latest and greatest package for Ubuntu. If I copy the files from that folder in a working Ubuntu installation, my openSUSE installation works fine. The files in the source tarball are:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 jdarnold users 232189 Nov 10 13:13 FlashLib-i486-linux.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 jdarnold users 254235 Nov 10 13:13 bxflplayer-linux
-rwxr-xr-x 1 jdarnold users 167978 Nov 10 13:13 bxoverride.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 jdarnold users 9864208 Nov 10 13:13 flplayer-i486-linux.so
The files from the Hardy debian package are:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 72845 Oct 23 12:08 FlashLib-i486-linux.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 76131 Oct 23 12:08 bxflplayer-linux
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 52629 Oct 23 12:08 bxoverride.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 10017140 Oct 23 12:08 flplayer-i486-linux.so
So maybe we could get a new source tarball?

i should have realized that! i knew that sorce tar was out of date, and it never occurred to me to mention it, in the other thread.
good call... my bad.

Compiled the http://dl.boxee.tv/boxee-source-0.9.3921.tar.gz without a glich on Opensuse 11, some stuff don't work like Hulu ( I'm in Chile :( ) and curiously youtube
but all the rest is rocking good
The only problem is that the "make install" don't work, so I run it in the source folder

youtube is broken for everyone, at the moment.

Please be sure to read my follow up post. 'make install' is for xmbc, not boxee. My followup post:
Explains how to "install" boxee, and includes the zip file for the latest flashplayers from the Ubuntu installation.
