I thought there _must_ be something wrong with your packages.

Multiple people on forums (both openSUSE and XBMC) report, that packaged by 
you XBMC crashes and vanilla one doesn't.

Just take a look at fresh one here: 

I was getting the same log and debug backtrace since I have upgraded to 
openSUSE 11.2.

Multiple times I shared this link and will do this again and again, until 
somebody gets interested: http://xbmc.org/trac/ticket/8187

Isn't it a shame, that openSUSE is in XBMC's FAQ one of the proud distros, 
which provides packages, but article author notes, that RPMs didn't work for 


I have even provided the patches and %configure flags to XBMC, so they could 
check for bugs, but they ignored them, as they don't have to support each 
custom patched build.


I won't ever compile XBMC on my own. It's power and time loss. You're telling 
you give RPMs, then you're responsible.

And how I resolved the bug: I removed DeviceKit-* stack and left HAL.

Can you include HAL dependency in .spec, or conflict with DeviceKit so nobody 
else gets such stupid bug?
