Arrow SageTV on ArchLinux with Comskip HOWTO

Greetings,

In case anyone is interested in setting up SageTV on ArchLinux with Comskip I am documented the setup required to make it work. These instructions are by no means comprehensive but they outline the required components to make it work.
  1. Install ArchLinux using base-dev
  2. Install Option sshd
  3. Configure the server and reboot (add sshd to rc.conf)
  4. Install and the following packages with pacman
    • samba lib32-glibc lib32-zlib lib32-libstdc++5 lib32-gcc-libs lib32-libxslt lib32-libxcursor lib32-libxdamage lib32-libxrandr lib32-mesa lib32-libtiff lib32-openssl
    • Note: Some of the above packages require additional packages which are available in the AUR repositories
  5. Install the following AUR packages using makepkg -i
    • lib32-libldap lib32-libsasl lib32-lcms bin32-wine
    • Note: To install a package from AUR you must first wget the files needed and then run makepkg -i in the directory of where the files are. For convenience I am listing the URLs here. You should create a separate directory for each package and download the appropriate file(s) in each.
      Code:
      wget http://aur.archlinux.org/packages/bin32-wine/bin32-wine/PKGBUILD
      wget http://aur.archlinux.org/packages/bin32-wine/bin32-wine/bin32-wine.install
      wget http://aur.archlinux.org/packages/lib32-lcms/lib32-lcms/PKGBUILD
      wget http://aur.archlinux.org/packages/lib32-libsasl/lib32-libsasl/PKGBUILD
      wget http://aur.archlinux.org/packages/lib32-libldap/lib32-libldap/PKGBUILD
    • Note: There is an order required which is not necessarily reflected above.
  6. Install Java
  7. Download and decompress comskip
  8. Install SageTV with Comskip plugin
    • Note: You will need a script to execute comskip. I have a script which works for me and can be downloaded from here.
    • Note: You may also want to create your own start and stop scripts to start comskip and SageTV.

This is great... I don't use arch linux, but I've been meaning to set this up on my ubuntu system. Hopefully I can get it working there as well.

Thanks!

I could have sworn I stuck this thread in with the Linux posts.. Not sure why it was moved here.

h.264?

Lst time I tried to setup comskip and wine I had to install the Visual C++ runtime for version 8.0 which I got it installed using winetricks before. I never could not get the h.264 version of comskip working. Everytime I ran it I would get random failures and the files would not get processed. Are you using the h.264 version? Right now I am running a VM that runs comskip, it just would be nice to not have to run the VM all the time.

Not running the h264 version. I don't run a gui on this server and the last time I tried, it wanted me to install X and all the crap that goes with it.

I suppose I will have to cave in and go that route if I want comskip to start scanning h264

I tried to sort it out with Erik last year but lost interest as it wasn't getting fixed.

Okay, so I just loaded up the latest version and it is scanning my files..



I am pulling about 18fps and it is maxxing out a core on my Q6600. I did a 30 minute show and it looks like it will be here a while. 10 mins in and 20% complete.

There any way to get comskip to not try and create a window?

Using the default installation as I outlined above comskip ran on one of the TS files with the log attached. I will take a look at the show later to see how it looks, but it found 3 commercial blocks in a 30 min cartoon show.

Setting up an arch server in a VM now thanks for giving it a try. I will let you know how it works. did you have to install the VC runtime?

I did not. It worked without issue. The commercial times were off, but I don't tune comskip nor am I familiar enough to know what settings are best.
