Install TVmosaic on a Ubuntu headless server

Post by brezlord » Sat Nov 02, 2019 11:41 pm

Hi all,
how do you install TVmosaic on Ubuntu headless server. I have setup a Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS amd64 server and installed gconf2 packages. I have the channels setup but when I open a web browser and try to watch a channel i get the following error "The media could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported." It's not a network issue. TVmosaic must be looking for a package that is not installed. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Simon

I have no experience with Ubuntu but I do a lot oa installing on a headless server and it is quite simple.

I always install on the headless system a VNC server and on another system a VNC client. Connect the both and I get the Desktop view of the headless system on my screen as a window. Within I can do all installing that I like.

TVMosaic is running smooth on Ubuntu 18.04.3 headless Server.
Just a few segfaults when more than one tuner uses dvbjcam plugin, but after a few seconds tvmosaic is working again.

i installed the following:

[TVMosaic]
sudo apt-get install gconf2 -y

[Havegd Entropy]
sudo apt-get install haveged -y
sudo systemctl enable haveged
sudo systemctl start haveged

[VAAPI]
sudo apt-get install i965-va-driver vainfo -y

[libxv1]
sudo apt-get install libxv1 -y

and i am using the mainline kernel, 5.3.11-050311-generic
