SOLVED: F11 - XBMC not starting

Hi all,

i have an issue with XBMC. I installed it from fedorajunkies.org and i think i installed all dependencies as well. However when i start XBMC nothing happens. So i tried from terminal and this is what i get:

$ xbmc
The XBMC_HOME environment variable is not set.
Fatal error encountered, aborting
Error log at /home/frank/.xbmc/temp/xbmc.log
/usr/bin/xbmc: line 7: 10363 Aborted /usr/share/xbmc/xbmc.bin "$@"

That number is different everytime i try though.

I have googled but nothing so far.

$ cat /home/frank/.xbmc/temp/xbmc.log

Anyone running XBMC on F11? Any suggestions?
