Offiical Apt Repository Changed

Added by Adam Sutton over 7 years ago


Having recently posted to tell you all that I'd got back on-line supporting a more comprehensive suite of builds. I've now decided to follow dreamcat4 and move the official hosting to bintray (I needed a bit of time to investigate it and understand that it's a much better solution).

So the existing auto-build system that feeds has now been altered to post stuff to a new "official" bintray location.

It's my strong recommendation that people downloading packages for Ubuntu / Debian use the new repository as may eventually stop serving content (though no intention to do that any time soon).

For more details please see AptRepository

Debian Jessie fails to fetch tvheadend from repository. I get:

W: Failed to fetch HttpError403

Entering the URL "" in a browser gives me "Forbidden!".

It's a bintray issue due to the large number of people using the repository.

When will you tag the next release version of Tvheadned? Latest tag is v4.0.9 in March 2016

And when will you release this next new 'stable' version of Tvheadend package for Ubuntu?

PS: Please remember that Linux distos do not create packages unless they have version tags.

Mint, Debian, Fedora, openSUSE, etc. does not include newer package unless you tag version.

Please try to tag and release often so that downstream Linux distros will update packages.

We seem to have a few problems with bintray location .....
I will ask my community run VPS, if they are able to assist.

What is exactly needed in order to host TVHeadEnd APT repo?
- How much bandwidth is needed?
- Monthly traffic?
- Disk space ....
- Processor/RAM requirements?
