1 Hardware requirement

2 XBMCbuntu minimum and recommended hardware requirements

Minimum Required Hardware for XBMC
Intel Pentium 4 | Intel Pentium M AMD Athlon XP/64 AMD Opteron ATI/AMD Intel NVIDIA 1GB OpenGL 1.4
or newer
(2.0 recommended)
or External
8GB or larger
Very fast modern dual-core processor is required

ATI Radeon R700 (HD 5000)

or newer supported
Intel GMA X4500HD (G45)
or newer recommended.
NVIDIA GeForce 6-Series
and newer supported
GeForce 8-Series
and newer recommended.

Note: ATI Radeon cards lower than HD5xxx are not supported with Ubuntu & variants 12.10 which is XBMCbuntu's base system due to changes in ATI's drivers. A workaround is to Install XBMCbuntu beta2 and upgrade XBMC using ppa or compile from source

  • x86 or x86_64 (Intel/AMD) processor computer capable of booting from CD-ROM/USB drive.
  • Optional is to install to a 8GB (or larger) USB-flash-drive or internal harddrive.

Note: If you like to install XBMCbuntu to USB and it still has U3 software on it (uninstall that first).

  • Larger than 8GB is if you have a lot of media as covers are cached on it.
