HOW-TO:Compile XBMC on Debian or Ubuntu

This page is being depreciated for individual how-to's on Debian and Ubuntu.
This is a tutorial on how to compile and install XBMC on Debian or Ubuntu
1 Checkout with Git
Development has moved to git, rather than subversion. You will need git installed to do this.
sudo apt-get install git git clone git://github.com/xbmc/xbmc.git
2 Install Packages
You'll have to install the necessary dependencies. First do this.
cd xbmc ./bootstrap ./configure
If you wish to use supported system libraries do this instead.
In either case, with the above installed packages this should go smoothly.
sudo make install
When this completes you are done!
You may either go into a terminal session or press Alt+F2. Then type 'xbmc'.
NOTE: On certain versions of Ubuntu, you may get a segmentation fault due to libcurl. This is resolved by creating a symbolic link in /usr/lib
cd /usr/lib sudo ln -s libcurl-gnutls.so.4 libcurl.so.4
