running jellyfin via podman

Here are the quick and dirty step I do to update images, containers and run Jellyfin via Podman:

  • sudo podman ps # get container id
  • sudo podman stop #
  • sudo podman rm #
  • sudo podman images # get the image id
  • sudo podman rmi -f #
  • sudo podman run -d --cgroup-manager=systemd --volume /opt/jellyfin/config:/config --volume /opt/jellyfin/cache:/cache --volume /storage/videos/:/media --volume /storage/books:/books --volume /opt/zap2xml:/zap2xml --net=host --restart=unless-stopped --device /dev/dri/renderD128:/dev/dri/renderD128 --device /dev/dri/card0:/dev/dri/card0 jellyfin/jellyfin:unstable
  • sudo podman run -d --name zap2xml -v /opt/zap2xml:/data -e USERNAME=youremail@email.com -e PASSWORD=**password** -e OPT_ARGS="-I -D" -e XMLTV_FILENAME=xmltv.xml shuaiscott/zap2xml


Running ASP.NET MVC via DNX on Ubuntu 15.10

My steps I did to get my ASP.NET MVC application I created on my Windows 10 box running on a Ubuntu 15.10 server.

Setup ASP.NET 5 on Ubuntu following this:

Update dnvm on windows:

dnvm updateself
dnvm upgrade -r coreclr

Fix the libicu for Ubuntu 15.10:

wget http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/i/icu/libicu52_52.1-8ubuntu0.2_amd64.deb
dpkg -i libicu52_52.1-8ubuntu0.2_amd64.deb

Say the web project is “WebApplication1” then console into that folder:

dnu publish
dnx web

Hit localhost and make sure the page load.

Copy the entire “WebApplication1” folder to linux box.
Restore the packages from the “WebApplication1” folder copied to the linux box:

dnu restore
dnx web


Error With Pip and flask-bcrypt

I am playing around with Flask and I wanted to use the Bcrypt tool to encrypt my users passwords. So like all the other packages I attempted:

pip install flask-bcrypt

That however resulted in this rather unpleasant error:

  error: Microsoft Visual C++ 10.0 is required (Unable to find vcvarsall.bat).

  Failed building wheel for python-bcrypt

That of course sent me on a dizzying hunt for resolution. I got it working by editing the “msvc9_support.py” file to not use the registry and use just the path where I found vcvarsall.bat on my computer:

   productdir = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\VC" # Reg.get_value(key, "installdir")

Elegant? Eh probably not, Utility? perhaps. But it does work and after that I was able to install flask-bcrypt.
