HOWTO install My Media System 1.1.0 (MMS) on Fedora9

7) Build and install MMS

make && make install

I had these errors, but it seems it has no impact [FIXME]

/usr/bin/ld: error in plugins/output/output.o(.eh_frame); no .eh_frame_hdr table will be created.
/usr/bin/ld: error in plugins/input/input-base.o(.eh_frame); no .eh_frame_hdr table will be created.
/usr/bin/ld: error in plugins/feature/feature.o(.eh_frame); no .eh_frame_hdr table will be created.

Check the installation by listing the library directory. It sould look like this:

ls -l /usr/local/lib/mms/plugins/

and the “-v” option on the command line should look like that:

mms -v
My Media System: 1.1.0 revno: 1977
Configuration: --disable-inotify --disable-ffmpeg-thumb --enable-clock --enable-notify-area --enable-weather --enable-game --enable-tv --enable-res-switch --enable-lirc --enable-opengl --enable-python --enable-debug

8 ) Quick and dirty config (optional, mms starts without this step)

  • Add your movie directory to /etc/mms/MovieConfig: mov_dir =
  • Add your pictures directory to /etc/mms/Pictures: picture_dir =
