first of all, I am pretty new to Linux, but eager to learn. And the RPi / XBMC / XBian was kind of the kick in the ... to make me do it Wink
I have a 512mb Pi with XBian 1.0 beta 2

My problem: I want to use a German VoD service ( watchever), that needs Silverlight. This seems to be possible by basically using Wine for the silverlight.dll, and a standard Browser for XBMC.

I followed these instructions:

There it is mentioned that if I use 64bit Debian, I should add i368 architecture repository, but the ARM11 used in the RPi is 32 bit based, so i skipped that step (sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386).

my source.list looks like this:
deb wheezy main contrib non-free rpi
deb stable main contrib
deb ./
#deb-src wheezy main contrib non-free rpi

but when I now want to get the packages with apt-get update, I get the following readout with errors:

xbian@xbian ~ $ sudo apt-get update

W: Failed to fetch Unable to find expected entry 'contrib/binary-armhf/Packages' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

and when I then want to install the packages, I get the error "package not found":


xbian@xbian ~ $ sudo apt-get install pipelight
Reading package lists... Done

E: Unable to locate package pipelight

Should I include the step with the 386 architecture?

Thanks for reading this far...

RPI is ARM architecture - completely different instruction sets for CPU binary coding.
ah ok.

for a 5seconds as seen you posted link I got scared that maybe I'm wrong. Smile)
Nope not wrong - unless you've REALLY done a Dark Wizard thing and got i386 running on Arm Big Grin
if you feel like stitchy pain - left arm - it is my voodoo doll I play with.
