Severity: wishlist

Hello Balint,

As much as I wished to move back to Debian with my RPi 2, I
unfortunately cannot because the graphics driver is not well free.

Until then, I'll send you patches. Attached is my small adaptation of
systemd .service to work on my Raspbian Jessie image.

On RPi, the X is not run. So you may have to adapt it to be more

@Michael Gorven: Thank you for maintaining XBMC for RPi. I use your
build. Since with Jessie, we have systemd, perhaps you may want to add
support for it. BTW, I did not really have to do all the stuff you've
done in the SysV init script. The systemd .service is very simple and
basic, and it works perfect.
