I hope this isn’t an obvious newbie question, but what is the easiest way to install mopidy on a Fedora (23) computer ? It appears to me that I need to install from source and build it ?
Yes. https://docs.mopidy.com/en/latest/installation/source/#install-from-source even has specific notes for Fedora.
Thanks. I was hoping for a simpler solution, ie a repo with a build for Fedora 23. Google turns up nothing AFAICT.
There’s no packages or anything that I know about. Actually, you’re only the second Fedora user that wants to run Mopidy that I’ve heard from in the last six years. The might be many more, but they’ve been silent.
I did spot a mopidy-fedora project on github that promised a package although it looked unmaintained. But if all the scaffolding is there maybe it’s trivial to generate a new release from it.
If it is the one that I found, the latest version is F21. https://copr.fedoraproject.org/coprs/afreof/mopidy/packages/
I’m probably going to do some mopidy development, so I might as well download the code.
I’ve run into a problem installing modipy on my F23 box.
The installation webpage (https://docs.mopidy.com/en/latest/installation/source/) states that I need python-gst0.10. It doesn’t appear to exist in F23.

Any ideas on getting python-gst0.10 for F23 ?
Could modipy be updated to work with gstreamer1 ?
Mopidy 1.2 will use GStreamer 1.
When will 1.2 be released ? What version of gstreamer is the current development branch using ? How stable is the current development branch ? Is anything broken ?
re"Actually, you’re only the second Fedora user that wants to run Mopidy that I’ve heard from in the last six years."
I’m guessing that is because 90% of everyone is using modipy on RPi with Musicbox. Nothing wrong with that, but I suspect that if we get the multi room/zone stuff working, people are going to want to run it on “real iron” and the demand from mainstream distros will be much more.
When it’s ready? 0.10 for now, 1.0 in a few days. Quite stable, and we will only merge the feature/gst1 branch when we believe it to be approximately as stable. The open bugs on the 1.2 milestone is the best pointer to what’s broken on it.
I’ve heard a lot from Debian/Ubuntu/Arch users, so I doubt that Pi MusicBox explains why I’ve barely heard from Fedora users, but you’re welcome here as well
[quote]When it’s ready? 0.10 for now, 1.0 in a few days.[/quote] That would be great. I’ll test it for you.

How is the build using gstreamer1 coming along ?
Update ? Is it ready ?
You could also check the changelog, that would probably tell you.
(yes, the update is ready).
