Dear all,

I just used the command curl -kL https://goo.gl/Vu8qGR | bash on Ubuntu 16.10 and get the following error:

Any advice?

Hi Robert,

Sorry about that, unfortunately this is 'expected behaviour': there are no binaries for Ubuntu 16.10.

The reason why I didn't produce them for 16.10 is very simple; it takes a bit of time to package Tizonia for every distro, and 16.10 (and all "Ubuntu dot-ten" releases for that matter) is simply not worth my time. Ubuntu only support Dot-ten releases for six months, and in addition to that, at least in my experience, they tend to be very 'beta-quality', as Ubuntu is always trying something new before they get it officially unveiled in the much more polished Dot-O-Fours.

In the future, I would like to produce docker images and snaps, but for now only debs hosted on Bintray, for a bunch of long-term supported Debian/Ubuntu distros (see README.md). I will consider creating Binaries for 17.04, but I would not hold my breath on it.

Hey Robert,

There is definitely a way, but I'm not sure if it is a 'simple' way :-)

You can always try to build Tizonia from source. Try this and let me know if it works for you:

Install git, if not yet installed
$ sudo apt-get install git

Clone tizonia
$ git clone https://github.com/tizonia/tizonia-openmax-il
$ cd tizonia-openmax-il

Export some environment variables
$ export TIZONIA_REPO_DIR=/path.to.tizonia.repo # (e.g. /home/robert/tizonia-openmax-il)
$ export TIZONIA_INSTALL_DIR=/usr
$ export PATH=$TIZONIA_REPO_DIR/tools:$PATH

Install Tizonia's dependencies
$ tools/tizonia-dev-build --deps

Configure, build, and install a single 'deb' package in one go
$ tools/tizonia-dev-build --debian

While you wait.. go grab a coffee... and maybe some dinner too...

If everything went well... copy the config file to your config folder, and add credentials there
$ mkdir -p $HOME/.config/tizonia
$ cp $TIZONIA_REPO_DIR/config/src/tizonia.conf $HOME/.config/tizonia

A little disclaimer: these build instructions usually render a single deb package that gets installed on your system and provides a functional Tizonia installation, useful for testing purposes. I've tested it successfully on other distros, but your milage in Ubuntu 16.10 may vary.

Let me know how it goes!

No problem Robert.

I've just managed to test it on a 16.10 vm and the recipe seems to work fine there too.
So I'm closing this for now. Feel free to comment or reopen if you need any help.
