You don't need to install anything to your server. Just make sure the files are in the right places, named correctly along with appropriate directories.
You don't need to have a dir.domain.com, boxee will pull your repo if you have a domain.com/whatever sub-directory location. The dir.domain.com location just makes it easier for users to enter into boxee.
This is for a "skin" app, not RSS. I haven't tried this with RSS, but I have a feeling it would work. Here is where all my files are.
Repository file - http://www.boxxxee.com/repository
Repository file (index.xml) - http://www.boxxxee.com/repository/index.xml
Repository file (repository.xml) - http://www.boxxxee.com/repository/repository.xml
Repository download folder - http://www.boxxxee.com/repository/download
The files are all there and you can download my zip file using the corrent naming convention (file-version.zip).
Can someone who has done a skin app repository successfully check these out and let me know if they see any issues.
Ameno, can you please describe exactly what happens when you try to add your repository to Boxee. Is the repository added to your list of repositories together with its thumbnail and description? Do you see the applications from your repository in the list of new apps? Do you get an error/success message upon installing one of these apps. Does the app then appear in the relevant internet section of boxee?
One common problem which a few of us ran into is that you should NOT use the os X built-in ZIP program to compress your app, but rather use betterzip.
svuille, your repository works for me. Can you try adding mine to your repositories and see if the app shows for you?
Would you mind posting your app's descriptor.xml file in here? Might be able to tell you what's going on.
Anyway, it looks exactly like it does in http://www.boxxxee.com/repository/index.xml
