Many thanks for your prompt reply. The vlc-radio an pivumeter software runs fine on Buster. It is only the vlc-radio/setup.sh installation script that is the problem.
I should explain that I use the pivumeter and parts of the vlcradio software with my own software namely the Rathbone Internet radio. See https://bobrathbone.com/raspberrypi/pi_internet_radio.html.
I have as far as I can work out somewhere in the region of 600 to 800 users so I am committed to supporting my software on the Pi4 with Buster. Using Jessie or Stretch is, of course, not an option for the Pi 4.
I have successfully installed and run pivumeter and vlcradio on a Pirate Radio running Buster by patching setup.sh described in Issue 28. It only requires two additional lines of code and solves the problem.
At the moment I have to carry out three operations to get the vlcradio software to run on Buster.
- Run vlcradio to download the software.
- Patch and run vlc-radio/setup.sh to compile and install vlcradio.
- Re-run the vlcradio install script a second time to complete the installation.
Is it possible to add those two lines of code to the described in issue 28? I don’t particularly want to modify someone else’s product in GitHub but I am happy to do the validation of the change.
