I realize you can't support every distro in an alpha version but I was hoping someone could give me some help trying to compile Boxee on Mandriva 2008.1.
I was able to get all the dependencies figured out and I fixed an mms error I got during compilation but am currently stuck at this error when compiling, a problem with python.
It looks like the issue is that the default python in Mandriva is not compiled to support unicode, I was ready to recompile python with unicode support but came across this post on a ArchLinux board about compiling xbmc, http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=34658.xbmc/lib/libPython/xbmcmodule/pyutil.o: In function `PyGetUnicodeString':
/XBMC/xbmc/lib/libPython/xbmcmodule/pyutil.cpp:28: undefined reference to `PyUnicodeUCS2_AsUnicode'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
Apparently compiling python with unicode support let it xbmc compile but it crashed when running. Zeqad1ous said he had to compile a temporary python to compile xbmc against.
I'm guessing that's what I'll need to do but I was wondering if I could get some help on how exactly to do that. It looks like there are some ArchLinux people on this board that have been successful compiling Boxee, any advice?
