Silan Version: 0.3.2-1build1 is BROKEN. It is fixed in later versions but not for Trusty.
This fix affects Ubuntu Trusty Silan issues in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty. I guess it is similar for Debian Jessie.

Based on Daniel James' posts in Airtime Forum. https://forum.sourcefabric.org/discussion/17273/bugfix-silan-packages-for-ubuntu-14-04-lts-039trusty039-now-available

Edit /etc/apt/sources.list and add:
deb http://apt.sourcefabric.org/ trusty main

Now do:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install sourcefabric-keyring
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --reinstall silan=0.3.2~trusty~sfo-1

To check that it is properly installed do:
sudo dpkg -s silan | grep Version
It should now report: Version: 0.3.2~trusty~sfo-1

NOTE: This only changes new imports - it does not fix files that already imported.

@hairmare This really needs including in any Ubuntu Trusty Libretime install packages.

This issue is a duplicate of #177 but it doesn't describe the problem at hand in a meaningful way. IMO the solution proposed here has some blocking problems.

I think it is very important that we replace the legacy upstream packages with something not dependent on legacy upstream (ie. https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=855319). More info on this is also in the old taiga#18. I just started working on getting local builds from the NMU (info in #177 (comment)).

Adding install instructions to LibreTime would lead to users being very much at the mercy of legacy upstream. I feel it is negligent to recommend installing LibreTime in this fashion considering the AGPL issues some users have experienced with legacy upstream.

We do not understand this. This does provide an instant and tested workaround for users on Trusty - for a problem to which there is not, at the the time of writing, a solution in the current release - so it is of immediate use to some users, at least until your next release. As it is open source, License: GPL-2+ not AGPL, and works, it seems that you could adopt/copy/include the whole package into the Libretime Trusty installation pack, for automatic install, and not be at the mercy of anybody, as we suggested above. Closed as 'Unwanted'.

@ghost How would one apply this in Xenial? When attempting to install, I get this message:

The following packages have unmet dependencies: silan : Depends: libavcodec54 (>= 6:9.1-1) but it is not installable or libavcodec-extra-54 (>= 6:9.16) but it is not installable Depends: libavformat54 (>= 6:9.1-1) but it is not installable Depends: libavutil52 (>= 6:9.1-1) but it is not installable E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Hi @smilingpeanut

@ghost is the name GitHub assigns deleted users.

Complete instructions on replacing OS bundled versions of silan are available in the releasenotes.

Please create a new issue and post the exact steps you took that lead to the failure if the steps from the release notes don't work.
For general discussion/linux help you may also want to ask on our discource.

Cheers,
Lucas

@hairmare Oh, haha, I didn't know that about @ghost. I'll take a look at the release notes. Thank you!
