Alright, I finally got it to build and put together some step-by-step step instructions. I had to build it on a 32-bit VM, though. The would crash when it started trying to use libjson because it was 32 bit, and my system is 64-bit. I tried everything I could find online to resolve that issue, but to no avail. As soon as I can confirm Boxee is working properly, I'll post a new thread (since this is 1.0.3) with the instructions.
A step by step guide would be great! I could finally try out v. 1.x
Hope you post it soon
I'll make a new thread as soon as I can actually test it. I'm out of town and all I have is this VM, and VMs don't seem to play nicely with Boxee
In the meantime, maybe someone else can try my instructions and get back to us on that
I had included the Python source you'd need, but it's too many characters, so I'll just provide this link instead: http://wrapitk.googlecode.com/svn-hi...c/doxy2swig.py
Then just enter ./Boxee in the root boxee source dir to run it!PHP Code:

tar -xvf boxee-ce4100-17443-sources.tar.xz
mkdir -p boxee-ce4100-17443/tools/doxygen
# Now paste the following Python code (down to the #####s) into the doxy2swig.py file you just created:
NOTE: too many characters for the form. See the link above.
# Back to console commands...
./configure --disable-ss-rsxs --disable-boxee-hal
# if this fails, you're still missing dependencies.
# Now it's time to edit some files!
# Open xbmc/app/XAPP_MC.cpp and add the following at the top of the file (including the # sign):
# Open xbmc/lib/cximage-6.0/jpeg-turbo/Makefile
# Find CXXFLAGS=
# Add '-fPIC' (without quotes) to CXXFLAGS
# Open Makefile (in the root boxee source dir)
# Find 'Makefile externals Boxee BoxeeHal RecoveryConsole'
# Change it to 'Makefile externals Boxee'
# Now, still in the boxee root dir, enter the following in the console:

I'm stuck and i probably have to remove libsamplerate0 to install libsamplerate0-dev
, but doing so removes a lot of packages (including the pre-complied boxee) and i have to leave it for now. If anyone has a fix please post.
figured it out, THIS COULD DAMAGE YOUR SYSTEM
sudo dpkg -r --force-all libsamplerate0
apt-get install libsamplerate0
apt-get install libsamplerate0-dev
apt-get install libmms-dev
checking for ENCA... no
apt-get install libenca-dev
apt-get install libhal-storage-dev
apt-get install libcurl4-gnutls-dev
apt-get install nvidia-185-libvdpau-dev
Okay now i have to go...
checking for vdpau/vdpau.h... no
On my system Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid)
A few packages had to come from the xbmc ppa
Get:2 http://ppa.launchpad.net/team-xbmc/ppa/ubuntu/ lucid/main libcrystalhd3 1:0.0~git20101029.6df10a0-1~ [46.9kB]
Get:3 http://ppa.launchpad.net/team-xbmc/ppa/ubuntu/ lucid/main libcrystalhd-dev 1:0.0~git20101029.6df10a0-1~ [17.1kB]
Get:4 http://ppa.launchpad.net/team-xbmc/ppa/ubuntu/ lucid/main librtmp-dev 2.3-2~ [63.1kB]
Everything else was is the official lucid repository
./configure worked and I had not installed build-essential before so I think your package list solves all dependencies.
make had no problems
Before running the new Boxee, I backed up my .boxee folder
Boxee started up fine and seems to work well except for one major thing: the browser doesn't work.
this is what i see in the log:

Yeah, neither the browser nor any flash based videos will work; the flash player is not part of the tarball. Not even as a binary blob.

Could be the AMD I suppose. Kinda lost on this one - anyone have any ideas?
