I am running boxee on Ubuntu 8.10, I just got it installed via aptitude and it looks nice. However when tried playing a DVD the video starts to lag quite heavily... I don't see such issues in say Kaffeine (xine, mplayer, etc). Does that mean my hardware is not powerful enough? I have a nvidia 5200fx card and 1680x1050 screen, p4 2.0GHz (1 core, one of the earliest).
BTW - I have been running boxee in fluxbox with no pulse, sync disabled (i.e. the thread what to check if the program is lagging) - so it looks that it is OK.
