I am trying to run xbmc on Pandaboard. Here are the steps I followed

1. installed ubuntu 12.04 (armhf) from

2. installed ubuntu-omap-extras (sudo apt-get install ubuntu-omap-extras)
after adding TI PPA

3. sudo apt-get install xinit xbmc

4. now I can see if I try to run xinit it gives me error (Xorg log is at

5. I observed omaplfb and pvrsrvkm modules are not loaded so before calling
xinit I try loading them and found both to be loaded but while loading
omaplfb I got segmentation fault (though lsmod shows the module been loaded)

6. Kernel log can be found at http://paste.ubuntu.com/1212692/

I have been trying this for a month and tried various way to make it up and

Any suggestion or comment will be highly appreciated and definitely would
be a great help for me.

Also, if anyone can point me out the working kernel + FS (ubuntu or debian)
repository for Pandaboard (not ES version) will be an ultimate help. I need
source code for working image as later I have some plan to modify some

Thanks in advance.
