Mycroft build for Solus

Anyone have build script or steps for getting Mycroft working on Solus OS? Thanks!

Hi there @gfrhollow, we don’t have any official documentation for Solus, but that’s not to say someone hasn’t tried it before. How are the instructions for Linux failing on Solus?

Hi @KathyReid, I believe I need to manually build/install fann (and perhaps others that I may have missed) as it is not in the Solus software manager, copying errors below. I also used this script to try and install all the dependencies but seems to be outdated. Was mostly curious if someone had created an updated version.
Not a big deal for me as I am up and running Mycroft on a raspberry pi!

Just to help people getting stuck in Solus:
A lot of the fails come from the missing -devel dependencies.

For fann2:

eopkg search fann

and see if you find the following able to install:

libfann - Fast Artificial Neural Network (FANN) Library
libfann-devel - Development files for libfann
python-fann2 - Python bindings for Fast Artificial Neural Networks 2.2.0

Thanks for sharing, @ByteBitten

Hardest to track back was when mimic created a config.log with the following:

configure:3372: gcc -I/usr/include/x86_64-linux-gnu -licui18n -licuuc -licudata conftest.c >&5
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -licui18n
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -licuuc
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -licudata

Where internet pointed to Qt5 or other programs… It’s to do with ICU:

eopkg install libicu-devel
