    Default Attention users of Opensuse 13.2 & XBMC/KODI if you get this error here's a fix!

    When I tried to start XBMC from Kickoff it wouldn't start. So when I started it from Konsole I got this:

    Code:
    sh: xdpyinfo: command not found
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/share/xbmc/FEH.py", line 175, in <module>
        if (badColorDepth()):
      File "/usr/share/xbmc/FEH.py", line 154, in badColorDepth
        return bitDepth
    UnboundLocalError: local variable 'bitDepth' referenced before assignment
    I found a fix for this that may work for you if the same error hits you.
    What did was I went through Yast typed pyinfo into the Search.
    A package called xdpyinfo came up, I installed it & now XBMC works like it should.
    I'm just a curious cat

    Yes, XBMC was missing a dependency.

    But it has been fixed already:
    http://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=904262

    And the current version 13.1-2.1 now in the repo does require xdpyinfo:
    Code:
    wolfi@linux-lf90:~> LANG=C zypper info --requires xbmc Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
