Version for x86/x64


#1

Hello,

First of all, congratulations to Sam and the team for the first OSMC stable release!

Just wanted to ask if there is an x86/x64 version planned for full-fledged HTPCs, as I seem to recall Sam talking about it. Thanks!


Install on PC
OSMC on i386
Can OSMC be installed in a normal laptop?
#2

Yes, and this was mentioned in the announcement.

You can expect it around September

Cheers

S

It’s still in the pipeline

#7

Will it be able to be installed and run via usb drive


#8

what is the status of this, ive been thinking on geting something more powerfull as a htpc and really like the ui of OSMC. I currently have this running on a rpi B and a Rpi B+ in two different rooms. Been thinking on swapping the one in the livingroom who is used most to something more powerfull.

#10

imalso looking for this, and primarily for testing additional apps instead of testing on my soon to be PI2/OSMC


#11

@sam_nazarko: Is there any possibility you could give a rough ETA? I’m really eager to get OSMC running on something more powerful than my RasPi2.


#12

It’s being actively worked on if you check GitHub. Just need time to build it as well as a variety of hardware (AMD and NVIDIA) to ensure things work as expected.

There is also a lot of work being done on the new Vero which is being refreshed soon.

Thanks Sam, I’ll keep tabs on Github to track the progress.


#14

If one would like to test the code currently on github for an example. How would one do ?
Can you install a fresh debian server and then build the osmc source to get a working osmc ?
or would one have to build the code to create a install media to install from ?


#15

I’m glad to hear that OSMC x64 will be released soon. I’m waiting for it since months with the hope that all the benefits of a whole Debian System are ready for use. Specially a working X11 would be very nice! Please…

And Sam, thanks for your hard work. It’s a beautiful project.
Good Luck.

hi, it’s me again… when will the PC support released? In GitHub i only see little progress. I pray for the november update. But if not, a nightly-build for testing purposes would be also nice. :sunglasses:


#17

Hi

It won’t be in the November update. A lot of work needs to be done for proper x64 support.

wow that was quick. Sad but true. :weary:
Thanks for your statement/update!


#19

Any news om this?


#20

Yes, it is still being worked on. It can be built and run from source, but you would have to manually partition
