Okay, so that Plumi install was pretty painful

Media Server. It was on everyone’s lips for a few months. Discussion was over, and bam, the go button was hit. So we get a fresh install of Ubuntu 12, live, and we’re off. Plumi manual instructions, on screen. Boom. Right. Let’s go.


The “issue” is that Ubuntu doesn’t have python2.6 in its default package managers, and I was too inexperienced to use the right search terms to look for backports or other options. In the end though, we got there.

sudo apt-get install python-setuptools yasm subversion
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common  # this package was renamed
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:fkrull/deadsnakes
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install python2.6-dev

The main difference here from the manual version on the website accounts for the fact that you have to take a bit of a detour since python2.6 isn’t on Ubuntu.

Then, continue on…

sudo apt-get install libjpeg62-dev zlib1g-dev groff-base build-essential
sudo apt-get install libssl-dev python-profiler libjpeg62-dev
sudo apt-get install libreadline5-dev libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev  # libxslt1-dev is needed
