OpenELEC + XBMC on Raspberry Pi

Open Embedded Linux Entertainment Center, or openelec for short, is a small Linux distribution built from scratch as a platform to turn your computer into a complete xbmc media center. openelec is designed to make your system boot as fast as possible and the install is so easy that anyone can turn a blank PC into a media machine in less than 15 minutes.

openelec build 10888 is available from http://www.numan1617.com/rpi/openelec/builds/

This is very much a work in progress.  For more info, please .
