Install XBMC Using PPA On Ubuntu 11.04 “Natty Narwhal”

In my older post i showed how to install XBMC using the ppa for Ubuntu 10.10. But now a new unstable ppa has been released to install XBMC this means that you don’t have to use my script or have to change the distribution to install XBMC.



To install XBMC open a terminal window (press Ctrl+Alt+T) and copy+paste the following lines:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/unstable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xbmc

To start XBMC press Alt+F2 and type: xbmc

XBMC is an award-winning free and open source (GPL) software media player and entertainment hub for digital media. XBMC is available for Linux, OSX, and Windows.

OK but what does it mean that it is “unstable” then? Will they soon release a stable ppa to download from then this one will be obsolete and not updated?
