XBMC on ATV2

Finally got around to putting XBMC back on my ATV2 unit. Some of the plugins available are great. i.e. ABC iView etc. Not to mention MythBox and a few others.

Just so I dont forget some things the next time I am going to jot them down.

Configuration files at /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/XBMC/userdata, namely sources.xml showing a sample smb(cifs) share.

NetworkManager on CentOS 6.2

Seems NetworkManager is driving everyone bonkers still and not just me. I did a GUI install and disabled the use of NetworkManager yet the stupid thing still seems to blow away my resolv.conf and better still not populated it even though I have things defined in ifcfg-eth0.

Grrr.

See here. I’ve experienced these exact same issues as the folks posting on the thread. I remember having this issue back on CentOS 6.0, guess it’s still not fixed.
