Because of some features in the latest stable XBMC release I felt the urge to upgrade my XBMC install from 12.3 to the latest stable version. Somewhere I have read XBMC 13 “Gotham” had dropped support for OSX 10.6, so I decided to migrate to Ubuntu, because my old Mac mini didn’t support a newer release of OSX.
Hardware: Mac mini 1,1 (2006 model)
Operating system: Mac OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard
Media Player software: XBMC 12.3 “Frodo”
The Mac Mini is equipped with a Core Duo 1.83 CPU and 2G memory, but more important, it has the Broadcom Crystal HD card on-board (BCM70015). Have a look at this older post about that subject.
Operating system: Ubuntu 14.04 LTS i386
Media Player software: XBMC 13.2 “Gotham”
