No mono-runtime from OpenSuse repo?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have been trying to set up Emby server on my Raspberry Pi 2 running Debian 8. I have done this before using the source code and manual configuration. However, I keep reading on forums that Emby Debian repo should 'just work' (with exception of ffmpeg - which cannot be distributed due to licensing issues) and give me required packages including emby-server, mono-runtime, imagemagick (q8) and others.

 

However, I am unable to get anything other than emby-server from that repository. If I check for apt-cache policy of mono-runtime, it defaults to the default Debian repo. Also, the ImageMagick packages available in default Debian repo are all q16. While Emby repo should provide me with q8 packages, apt-cache search for those packages return nothing.

 

In short, only emby-server package is being detected from Emby Debian repo. What's going on here? Is there a repository way to obtain rest of the packages? I'd rather not go through the hassle of manual compilation again.

Your situation is a bit more complicated because you are using a RPi.  The Pi is an ARM device, meaning that the CPU instruction set is RISC instead of CISC.  To make a long story short, the packages all need to be compiled to be compatible with ARM devices and the OBS repo doesn't currently have any ARM packages.  That would be why you aren't getting any packages from the OBS repo.

 

If you want to help get those packages in the repo, you can volunteer to help.  We are always looking for contributors.

Rpi packages are only on the ubuntu 14.04 repo. Point to the 14.04 repo.
