This is yet another post for myself to be able to replicate this setup at another time.
The background to this is that I used to always use xbox connect to play halo 1 online. It is a great system made by a great guy (woot Todd!). I was involved with the community for a really long time but recently I switched over to the dark side (xlink kai) because of their support for multiple operating systems and their connectivity with modded xbox’s. I was setting up xlink on my mythtv box (which actually seems to be working mostly) and I just wanted to post instructions on how to get it to work if I ever have to reformat.
Basically just download the tar.bz file from www.teamxlink.com and extract the file. Open kaid.conf with a text editor and adjust settings as needed. Once the settings are all done copy the kaid.conf file to the /etc folder and then the kaid file to /usr/bin. Now to run the xlink server simply type “sudo kaid” in a terminal. (or set it to run at start up).
Connecting from xbox media center is easy. Just go to the settings and then “My Programs”. Turn on the service and put in your user name and login information. After that everything in controlled from the xbox. It is a great system and I now can play halo 1 online without ever needing to touch a controller.
I hope this helps.
I haven’t had a chance to go through this script but I also saw this in the forums for running kai via a startup script. Enjoy.
