Python-gst-1.0 dependency in Wheezy impossible to meet?

Hi all,

I’ve got almost every requirement satisfied to install on Debian Wheezy (on some archaic arm hardware hence limited in distro options) but there seems to be a missing package dependency in mopidy’s apt install procedure for wheezy: Depends: python-gst-1.0 but it is not installable.

As you can see from the package listings page, there is no backport of this to Wheezy:

Any advice? It feels like I’m so near but yet so far…

An update on what I’m trying:

Build requirements for source build of gobject-introspection can be met by apt.

This then lets you build pygobject.

Which will let you build Python-gst-1.0

So, I got to a successful build of python-gst-1.0 but am still getting the following:

raceback (most recent call last):
File “/usr/bin/mopidy”, line 9, in
load_entry_point(‘Mopidy==2.0.0’, ‘console_scripts’, ‘mopidy’)()

File “/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gi/”, line 48, in require_version
raise ValueError(‘Namespace %s not available’ % namespace)

Any ideas?
