  • nothing more to say...

Was wondering if anyone has successfully installed MC19 on any of the rolling Linux Distros. And if so, which ones?

I cannot get any of the versions to install in Linux Mint Debian Edition (mate). LMDE is a rolling distro which I prefer and am learning as I am moving from Windows XP to Linux. It is friendly for Windows XP users. The Media Jukebox 8 was one of the only 2 programs which I could not completely move to Linux. I was able to make my other program work using Crossover Linux. I'm hoping for a new version of MC 19 which will run on LMDE, but can partition part of my HDD to accommodate another OS, if it is a rolling one.
Thanks,
tlcmd (aka Dick)

I guess in a sense (bleeding edge, that is), openSUSE Factory is rolling and I have it running with the 3.12RC4 kernel there.

Quite easy to do on Suse, just had to install libcurl-32....

I'm running openSuse 12.3 and like Mike I had to install the library.

It is really simple, just extract the debian file into a given directory and create one link into /bin that points to the "mediacenter"-binary  and an other link in /usr/lib/ that points to the jriver directory. It look something like this:

/usr/lib/jriver    ---->   /home/udo/bin/MediaCenter/usr/lib/jriver

If you get a new version, simply delete the "MediaCenter" directory and replace it by the new one, rename it to Mediacenter that should be it.
