    Default Livestation

    One thing I miss from Windows is Livestation So I looked and they do have a Linux version. Problem was when I installed it I couldn't get the sound to work.

    So I decided to uninstall it and try again.

    The install is easy enough.

    cd into the directory it is in and
    Code:
    sh Livestation-2.7.0.run
    You get a long EULA and you have to pay attention. If you just keep hitting enter and miss the y/n part it will automatically see it as a no and you have to start over. It did ask for the root password once towards the end to create symbolic links, etc.

    To remove it I did

    Code:
    rm -rf /usr/local/Livestation
    rm /usr/bin/Livestation
    rm /usr/bin/livestation
    So once I get the audio figured out I will post it here if anyone else needs the info. If anyone has info on this please post it here.

    Well that was easy. I got the sound to work.

    Create a file in your home directory called .openalrc

    Add this to the .openalrc file

    Code:
    define devices '(alsa native)
    define alsa-out-device "default"
    Save and that's it.

    Livestation is a media player like Miro. Except you can get a large amount of streaming feeds from around the world, in various languages. For example Al Jazeera news, Russian Federation news, NASA, NBC Weather plus, ABC News (When it is online) And so on.

    Edit: Also Documentaries and other things like that.

    With Hulu, Miro and Livestation. I have everything covered that I want right now.

    Also Livestation has a chat feature which is nice. If you watch a news show on Al Jazeera for example you can watch and chat with others about it. Even the reporters, editors, etc, from Al Jazeera will participate.

    really, it has just one of these: '
    that is kinda odd..

    hmmmmm...i can't even get that far, i switched to root and still got:

    # ./Livestation-2.7.0.run
    Verifying archive integrity... All good.
    Uncompressing Livestation installer............................
    ../Livestation-2.7.0.run: ./setup.sh: /bin/sh: bad interpreter:
    Permission denied

    i wonder what it is looking for that root doesn't have access to..

    When I installed it right at the end it needed to do a couple of things needing root permission. I gave it and it installed fine.


    I am not sure why it denied you permission at that stage. I installed it as a normal user right up until it asked for root permission.

    Are you installing it as root from the start? If so that may be the problem.

    I just reinstalled it, well started to. This is what it said for me. I did this as a normal user not as root.

    Code:
    sh Livestation-2.7.0.run
    Verifying archive integrity... All good.                      
    Uncompressing Livestation installer............................

    Maybe try and download it again. Or it is possible something is missing for it to install correctly, which if that is it I am lost as to what it could be.

    I am curious though what the problem is.

    I found this at their forum. Sounds like the problem you are having. This was their reply.

    Running the installer (Livestation-2.7.0.run) on my Ubuntu 9.04 desktop, having followed the installation instructions to the letter, produces the following output:

    Verifying archive integrity... All good.
    Uncompressing Livestation installer............................
    eval: 1: ./setup.sh: Permission denied

    Running the installer as a different user, or with or without sudo, always produces the exact same error message.

    What makes it even stranger is that it installed effortlessly and works fine on my laptop using the exact same steps. The only difference is that the laptop is running Ubuntu 9.04 64-bit, instead of 32-bit as is on the desktop.

    Could someone help me figure out what it is that I am doing wrong here? I hope this is the right forum for this - it is definitely an error message of some sort.

    I would say that your tmp partition is mounted with noexec flag or something similar, the extracted script is not able to run.

    Extract the installer to another partition by setting the TMPDIR environment variable before running the installer. eg.

    chmod +x Livestation-2.7.0.run
    export TMPDIR=/home/myusername
    ./Livestation-2.7.0.run

    Obviously you need to pick a directory that you have permission to write to and execute scripts from.
