Xlink Kai Server on Raspberry Pi 3

Post by PressY4Pie » Thu Jan 25, 2018 12:41 am

Long time no see XBMC4XBOX crew. After about 5 years i've just picked up an Xbox from a goodwill, and wanted to play some Halo 2 online.
I don't have a windows machine, and ddwrt support seems to have been dropped, and all other guides seem to be pretty out of date. so i decided id whip something up myself.

I want my Xlink server to be running all the time so Raspbain wasn't an option for me. Soooo naturally i made my own tiny distro that does the following:

1) boots linux kernel
2) connects to network
3) sets time
4) downloads latest latest xlink engine
5) starts engine on port 80

and thats it. no screwing around with iniit scripts or anything like that. If the engine exits, it restarts it etc. Very stable. been running all day long.

Heres the latest download: https://github.com/ConnorRigby/xlink-ka ... v0.1.0.img
Instructions in the README.md: https://github.com/ConnorRigby/xlink-ka ... /README.md

It only works on raspberry pi 3 currently. I have some plans for this package so check back if your interested.

Will this work on Raspberry Pi Zero W? I tried loading it up but didn't see the device on my network. Maybe it has to do with improper wifi settings? Idk. I'll keep trying with it though. This seems like a neat project. :)
