Updating XBian

Your XBian install can be kept up to date in many ways, but all lead to the same core mechanism. As is standard on Debian-based systems, the APT system is used.

How to update

Choose one:

  1. update via xbian-config tool directly from inside XBMC
    • you don't even need a keyboard to do it this way - just use your remote
  2. update via xbian-config tool from terminal (text-based console)
  3. update via apt-get on your own

Turn on auto updates

Auto updates can be configured via xbian-config tool too. With the default configuration, XBian will check for updates daily and will install all stable packages.
