Compiling Plex Media Player from source

rolandbirdrolandbird Posts: 21Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Has anyone been able to successfully compile the plexinc/LibreELEC.tv source on Github for a Raspberry Pi2?

I have a Ubuntu 16.04 64bit development server. I have cloned https://github.com/plexinc/LibreELEC.tv to local directory and initially followed the instructions in the PlexBuild.md file. I switched to Libreexlec-8.2.2-plex branch.

But that didn't work. I subsequently installed a number of additional packages and now it begins to compile, but it still fails part way through. The point where it's failing now is around building the mediacenter components. It complains about no package.mk file.

INSTALL heimdal (host)
INSTALL Python (target)
INSTALL sqlite (target)
INSTALL libaio (target)
Python2: no package.mk file found
Makefile:12: recipe for target 'image' failed
make: *** [image] Error 1

I'm now trying to compile a generic version and the dist-master branch (updated 7 days ago).

Any help would be appreciated.
