If I understand right with the last version I should remove lib32-curl (in my case lib32-curl-jriver, since the official version will make jriver segfault) lib32-libssh2, lib32-libidn (not possible to remove, used by acroread), libcrypt (libgcrypt?, I don't have it), libz (what is this in Arch?)
libcurl is not used anymore....? I don't see it in your debian package in /usr/lib/jriver...

Ok, I have removed lib32-curl-jriver and ib32-libssh2, however is not working. If I start mediacenter19 I will have a segfault.

In the debian package there is data.tar.xz instead of data.tar.gz, so makepkg was using the one from a previous package!!

Now is working

So what did you do exactly?

I extracted the deb and the data file that comes of that, and copied it over /usr/*.

When that still segfaulted, I removed the libcurl files from /usr/lib/etc.

Sorry about that. Was trying to make a smaller package.

pacman -R lib32-curl-jriver lib32-libssh2
pacman -U jriver-media-center-19.0.129.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

The package jriver-media-center-19.0.129.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz is made with
makepkg PKGBUILD

Thanks hifi.

Few things, I can't remove lib32-ssh2, it depends on lib32-curl. Removing both will also remove flashplugin and some other stuff.

The latest mediacenter package is 129-3. I simply adjusted the package build and built it, that part works.

I removed both jriver and jriver-curl and installed the newly created package.

This is still segfaulting for me.

...you should install flashplugin not lib32-flashplugin.

It is strange: I have installed in another computer and I have a segfault. In the first computer is fine.
In both I have removed lib32-curl-jriver lib32-libssh2

MC shouldn't care if you have installed any libcurl, libssh stuff. It's not supposed to be using any of it.

I redid the makepkg with that PKGBUILD and reinstalled. The only thing that was different is the sha256sum.

lib32-curl-jriver ERROR!
"Error. Please check config.log"
Can anyone update the PKGBUILD for that, or do I need to uninstall lib32-gcc? (You need to uninstall lib32-gcc to install multilib-*)

Thank You Very Much for the updated media-center-134 PKGBUILD! It works perfectly!
This is very easy for someone new to Arch, like me.
I would give a screenshot, but maximum upload size is 700kb :(

Now there is an official AUR package!

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/jriver-media-center/

Maintainer is blackhole, that is me...

For installation you can use:
yaourt jriver-media-center

or use another AUR package application of your choice.

What should I write in the field "licence"?

Does Archlinux have an advantage over Debian or is it "just" another distro?
I am currently on Debian as JRiver is officially build on that Distro.

Read:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_Linux
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/The_Arch_Way

That all sounds nice if that's the sort of thing that tickles your imagination.

In day to day business, Arch is a rolling distribution that contians the latest features, fixes and of course, their bugs. Debian is different in that respect in that it only sees security and bug fixes, but no major version updates for components (or at least, not very often to my knowledge).

Arch requires a little more attention and I suppose its a little steeper to get it running, to get used to and to maintain. On the other hand, their wiki, guides and forums contain very accurate information and so far, anything I needed was found working and up to date on their wiki/forum.

Arch still seems to have a reputation of breaking regularly. This is no longer the case, at least not for me and the people I know that run Arch (which I admit, is only a handful of people). For the months with a steady flow of almost daily updates including big kernel and other core OS updates, I've not seen or heard of anything break.

With Debian, I ran into bugs that I couldn't get rid of, because updating a major component on Debian (not on the official repositories means compiling from source) required me recompile dozens of libraries and other dependencies (it just cascades into half the system) and then still break the system on the next update. On Arch this is a lot easier to fix or prevent from happening.

You could choose to update Debian from Stable to Testing or even unstable (sid). I tried and testing works quite well but missed some stuff for me, testing seems just broken most of the time. I hear people claim Sid is working fine for them, so I suppose it just depends and the same could be said for Arch.

The best thing you can do is to just try it :).

I just wanted to thank hifi25nl and Inflatable Mouse for this thread, I just got MC up and running in arch and I never would have managed it without this thread (and that AUR package).  Thanks a million  ;D

Quick question for hifi25nl; I installed the AUR and the listed dependencies on a comparatively blank Arch build, but MC did not initially run (gave me a black screen).  After re-reading this thread and some other threads, I also pulled lib32-curl and that solved the issue (MC ran fine after that).  Should lib32-curl be listed as a dependency in the AUR package?

Either way, MC's running for me! Thanks again!

Awesome! Good choice on Arch. Out of all the Linux distro's I tried, its the least buggy one for me, it's been running flawless. I update about once a week.

How did the installation of Arch go for you? Are you an experienced Linux user? Did you follow their wiki installation guide?

You know about yaourt AUR package? If not, look it up and install it, it will make installing packages from AUR simple like installing official applications with pacman.

If you need any help with anything feel free to ask, PM me if you think its offtopic.

I actually tried Arch because of your recommendations in various threads.  I initially tried installing Debian Wheezy from an iso to dual boot with win 8, but the debian installer completely screwed up the boot record such that neither wheezy nor win 8 would boot (apparently it's a known problem that if your linux boot drive is not on the first drive (sda) debian sometimes borks the MBR with the auto install)!  I tried doing some recovery operations, but after the third failed try of getting Wheezy going, and seeing how unhelpful the Debian installation FAQs were, I took a look at the Arch beginner's guide and figured "why not."  

The Arch install went pretty easily (worked the first time, up and running in a few hours).  If I were writing the Arch beginner guide, I might rewrite a few parts for clarity, but on the whole it went great.  I'm not a super experienced Linux user, but I have some IT background ( I used to do C and pascal programming (as well as dos scripting) in the 90's). My first linux experience was setting up a headless linux server in my house about two months ago using Mint.  I realized too late that the defaut mint Cinnamon DE spin breaks VNC and X forwarding completely with my hardware, which meant I had to learn how to do remote administration through the command line.  Thankfully CLI interfaces and scripting aren't totally foreign to me, so I picked up bash pretty quickly.  If I hadn't spent the last two months learning my way around the CLI, and manually configuring ssh and samba shares, etc. I might have been daunted by Arch, but as it was, it seemed like a fun project (and a way to rescue my borked laptop)

I actually used yaourt to install the JRiver package after trying unsuccessfully to build it myself.  The issue wasn't resolved by yaourt, which is when I realized that that I wasn't subscribed to the multilib repo so I couldn't satisfy the dependencies (d'oh).  After that the yaourt jriver install went smoothly (other than the absence of lib32-curl).

Thanks for the offer, I'm sure I'll have some questions for you in PM before too long  ;D

For video support in archlinux there is:
lib32-nvidia-libgl for nvidia closed source driver
lib32-mesa-libgl for open source driver

The results:
lib32-nvidia-libgl is working fine. Some flash but strangely this disappeared after some time (?)
lib32-mesa-libgl is NOT working. There is a segmentation fault when a video is started (both with hardware acceleration enabled or disabled)

However I have upgraded the AUR package to version 20.0.13

The test has been made in two different computers, one with only nouveau driver one with only nvidia closed source.

In dmesg the error message is:

I am using already debian+MC20 but on the other partition with AP-Linux v3 (which is developed over Arch Linux) I want to install as well and compare.

I have read all messages in this topic and searched thorough internet. I found this page;

http://linuxandfriends.com/arch-linux-how-to-install-packages-from-aur/

Should I follow all instructions at this website to install MC20. Any additional thing?

" just as a final stage I should type;

$ yaourt jriver-media-center "


Am I correct? Thanks in advance for the assistance.

yaourt -Ss [packagename] to search
yaourt -S [packagename] to install

I know it works without the operator and options but its simply not a very good pratice to asume a command defaults to a certain operation. One day the defaults change (a developters' mistake?) to -Rcn and you'll be left with a broken system.

My advice: learn to use operators and their options and be specific about what you want a command to do (any command, basically). Yaourt is developed to accept the same operators and parameters as pacman so if you know one, you know them both.

It says right there on your screen what the problem is:

Missing dependency: package-query.

Download it from AUR and build it. Then build yaourt. Then you can install jriver-media-center.

Did you enable multilib? You're going to need it for MC's dependencies.

First, stop running everything with root. Use sudo when you have to. Pkgbuild should be run as user.

After building with pkgbuild, you need to install the package.

Install it with:

sudo pacman -U package-query-1.4-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

Correct the filename if yours is named differently.

After that, build yaourt and install it the same way.

If that fails, post the error messages it fails with. Make sure if compains about a missing dependency that you install that first.

Then, if yaourt is installed, you can install MC as follows:

yaourt -S jriver-media-center

Accept to install all the dependencies.

You should also install the following, they are not hard depencies but will make things easier:

lame, xorg-fonts-100dpi, xorg-fonts-75dpi.

Did you abort a pacman action (ie, ctrl-c or ctrl-/)??

Or maybe you closed a terminal while one was active and now its hanging in the background?

Either way, make sure there is not another instance of pacman running.

Do a sudo ps aux|grep pacman

If there's one still active and, kill it.

Then do sudo rm /var/lib/pacman/db.lck

and try again.

I hope your package database is not corrupt ...

Thank you very much to pay, if you can write an installation guide MC working at Arch linux, it would be great.
