hi to Everyone!
I hope to not be confused with a grave-digger replying to this post! :D

I trying to install Rivendell on Pidora (fedora for raspberry-pi), in the worst way possible: compiling everithing from source.

The problems in my case, are tied to Libtool: to "make install" Rivendell, is needed a specific version of libtool. To install that specific libtool, a previous version of gcc is needed, but to install that version you'll need a specific version of GMP, MPFR and MPC packages.

no problem at all installing GMP, but when is the time of MPFR, I get a series of similar errors (but I'm not entirely sure that is related to the architecture of the R-Pi)

the errors terminate all the operations.
It says:

Code: Select all

mpfr-impl.h:1665:63: error: unexpected type name 'mpfr_srcptr'
__MPFR_DECLSPEC int mpfr_round_near_x_MPFR_PROTO ((mpfr_ptr, mpfr_srcptr,
mpfr.h:179:25: note: in definition of macro '_MPFR_PROTO'
# define _MPFR_PROTO(x) x
somebody know how to solve this?

Looking at the source code, particularly debian/control file tells everything about all the problems you have been facing to build it for Raspberry Pi systems; I'm sure, in its current state is not only difficult, but possibly impossible on other systems as well.

I'm sure, this 'rivendell' thing seems UN-maintained and is based on outdated libraries and, or dependencies :-(

I downloaded the Pixel build from sourceforge, and it doesn't work. No audio. The menu item under rdadmin for alsa setup shows that a file is missing. Air play seems to be playing the test audios, but no sound from HDMI or my USB audio dongle. Both worked before with a Jessie build with VLC, etc.
Do I have to create some files, download from a different source, or is this just going to work? :(

It turns out the SD card I was using was the problem getting audio to work on Rivendell. The OS was so slow... that made me think I'd seen this before. I made a new card (sandisk) and now everything is working.

@PiBurner, out of curiosity are you the one who left the negative review over at SourceForge? The dates align pretty closely. https://sourceforge.net/projects/rivend ... pberry-pi/
