I'm trying to run XBMC on a Dell Dimension 4300S (stock parts). I cannot get it to finish a live boot. It gets stuck on "restarting openbsd secure shell server sshd" [see picture].
The XBMC Hardware Discussion forum may also have useful notes -- but, I have not checked that.
Update: Can you confirm that a regular Ubuntu LiveCD works fine?
Update2: Hardware limitations (and driver support) is what I suspect.
Well, since no one wanted to help me, I figured it out myself. I just installed it as software on the machine. Setup the third-party software key and updates and I was good to go. Just installed through the terminal and it runs like a charm.
