How to update MC20
« on: November 10, 2014, 12:20:27 pm »

Am I right that MC20 for Linux  has to be reinstalled from scratch to update to the latest build?

If so, surely you use up restores pdq?  And do I have to uninstall current version first, if so how?

Thanks

Installing doesn't use a restore.  Here's how licensing works:

You don't need to uninstall to install an update.

Sorry don't understand, I thought the install key I had to use to license my copy in the first place could only be used for 14 days

The link is the best source of information.

Updating minor versions doesn't require any change in licensing.

Wait, you just want to update MC20? I assume you already have it installed? If so the most easy way is to use the following commands in a terminal window...

1) First, we need to cd into the downloads folder by typing the following into a terminal;

Code: [Select]
cd ~/Downloads
2) Next, we're going to download the latest build. Adjust the link/build number for newer builds as they're released;

Code: [Select]
wget http://files.jriver.com/mediacenter/channels/v20/latest/MediaCenter-20.0.31-1.deb
3) Finally, this command will install the latest build, again remember to adjust the build number to the latest build as they're released.

Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg -i MediaCenter-20.0.31-1.deb
If all goes well, you should have the latest build of MC20 installed. If you experience any dependency errors, just use the following command to take care of them;

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install -f

Great thanks.

Presumably from previous post, I don't need to use a new install key?

If you've already successfully restored your license and MC20 doesn't prompt for it (and/or you can view your registration info from the help menu), you don't need to. If MC20 is prompting for your license after you've restored it then you may have another issue going on there.

Thanks again, all worked fine with no license issues.
