Cannot install PS3 Media Server on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Postby axia777 » Fri May 16, 2014 5:12 am

Hello all. I cannot install the PS3 Media Server onto Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. I get the following error message.

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
ps3mediaserver : Depends : ps3mediaserver-multiarch but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

The commands I used are:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:happy-neko/ps3mediaserver

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install ps3mediaserver

I do not know what the "ps3mediaserver-multiarch" part is about at all. I have searched high and low but no one seems to really know. I have even posted on the Ubuntu official support site and no one there seems to know either. Anyone have any ideas on a way to get PS3 Media Server install on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS? O_o Any feed back is much appreciated.

EDIT: I also have installed mencoder, ffmpeg and other transcoding tools like VLC, ect. This did not assist in solving the issue.

This issue is what is holding me back from upgradading my Ubuntu from 12.04 to 14.04.

I hope happy-neko updates his ppa to support Ubuntu Trusty soon.

i have it working just fine on kubuntu 14.04 used the file didn't know that there was a way to actualy have it installed as app in your list but i have it in a folder and just click a icon and it launches check out this link
http://sourceforge.net/projects/ps3mediaserver/ after install use PMS.sh to run it don't run it from terminal because it will be double logged and will cause random stalling if runs just pms.sh from file browser no stalling at all
