Missing packages for 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus)?
Added by Mr Johnzered about 2 months ago
According to https://tvheadend.org/projects/tvheadend/wiki/AptRepositories packages should be provided for 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) but unfortunately I cannot find any

sudo apt install tvheadend
No apt package "tvheadend", but there is a snap with that name.
Is it just me not understanding how to install or is the package actually missing?

I remember, test suite is showing failure for ubuntu 16.04 ... so the short answer is: you can't build tvh master on ubuntu 16.04 (if I remember right some error related to python).

You can build it, and in fact we are building it, we just can't upload it to our repo. So long story short: Update to a more recent OS or self-compile.
