Sopcast and Porteus Mate 3.2.2

Post#1 by amplatfus » 04 Mar 2018, 20:14

Hi

I am trying to make Sopcast working on Porteus Mate 3.2.2. I installed VLC from Porteus Forum 3.2.1 vlc-2.2.4 (non-kde) XZM VLC:
from here: https://cloud.mail.ru/public/9ULd/sAGNR5Bt2

But I need also to install the Sopcast. I have tried also from
[Solved] MPlayer SopCast Channel Problem with TS Format
here on Porteus Forum but did not managed.

Could please help?
Many thanks in advance,

You have two options IMO amplatfus.

1. Access the /var/usm/salix file as root and change the mirror it is set for to a different one.

2.Run the sesm.sh script described here: [INFO & SCRIPT] Slackware Mirror Settings for USM

Either option should work for you.

Nothing was found in Slackware but i found this in slackbuilds.

NAME :  sopcast-player 
CATEG: network
DESC : sopcast vlc
VERS : 0.7.2
After activating devel.xzm I managed to create sopcast-player-0.7.2-x86_64-1_SBo.tgz file.

Code: Select all

Slackware package /tmp/sopcast-player-0.7.2-x86_64-1_SBo.tgz created.
I tried to activated, but after open VLC with network stream sop://51.15.195.206:3912/151380 for instance it not worked. Could you please advice with what I should try?

Many thanks,

sopcast-player is a gui frontend for sopcast..
i guess it does nothing without sopcast..
read here:
https://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.2 ... st-player/
https://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.2 ... k/sopcast/
sopcast is only available as 32bit..
we don't seem to have and 32bit compat module any more?
