Here creating a new XBMC boot image from scratch. Started with your base Ubuntu 12.X build and want to install your customized XBMC build. I am currently building it for an 8 Gb SSD stick. That said I will shrink it to say 2Gb for uploading for public consumption.
Direction here is:
I have a distributed audio system called Russound going to some 12 zones. That and I have the ability to utilize some 12 sources for audio. Today I can also remote control an XBMC box (or sqeezebox player) via my automation box such that I can leave the Joggler next to the distributed audio system box and remote it via touchscreens from the automation mothership. I can actually put the Joggler anywhere using audio to cat5e analog cables or optical audio to cat5e cables. For now will leave it next to the Russound distributed audio system as these boxes are on the server rack.
My current steps are:
1 - fat formatted a new 8Gb stick and installed base Ubuntu 12.X ext4 build
2 - installing webmin (cuz I like it?) on said build
3 - updating base build first.
4 - let it update some 92 packages
5 - went to installing XBMC.
