LYNXCHAN 4.3.8 ON UBUNTU 20.04 LTS! pepe 11/12/2020 (Thu) 23:10:13 No. 1529
Hey! to run the latest ver of lynxchan on ubuntu 20.04 lts you just have to use newer ver of node and mongo. I did it easily. Digitalocean droplet, ubuntu 20.04 lts. here is literally all i did ///////////////////// Make a new user and stay in home/newuser directory with new user account. sudo apt-get update sudo apt install curl sudo apt install build-essential sudo apt-get install manpages-dev sudo apt install zlib1g sudo apt-get install yasm sudo apt-get install imagemagick sudo apt-get install libmagick++-dev sudo apt install libimage-exiftool-perl sudo apt install git unzip file sudo apt-get update curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_14.x -o nodesource_setup.sh sudo bash nodesource_setup.sh sudo apt install nodejs sudo apt-get install unzip curl file wget -qO - https://www.mongodb.org/static/pgp/server-4.4.asc | sudo apt-key add - echo "deb [ arch=amd64,arm64 ] https://repo.mongodb.org/apt/ubuntu focal/mongodb-org/4.4 multiverse" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mongodb-org-4.4.list sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -y mongodb-org // installs the latest mongo ver sudo systemctl daemon-reload sudo systemctl start mongod sudo systemctl enable mongod sudo apt-get install libopus-dev libmp3lame-dev libfdk-aac-dev libvpx-dev libx264-dev yasm libass-dev libtheora-dev libvorbis-dev mercurial cmake build-essential sudo apt-get install libavformat-dev sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install pkg-config sudo apt install git git clone git://source.ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg.git cd ffmpeg git checkout release/4.2 sudo ./configure --enable-shared --enable-pic sudo make sudo make install #sudo nano /etc/ld.so.conf #include ld.so.conf.d/*.conf #/usr/lib #/usr/local/lib sudo ldconfig cd git clone https://gitgud.io/LynxChan/LynxChan.git cd /home/va/LynxChan/aux ./setup.sh useradd node -s /usr/sbin/nologin sudo ./root-setup.sh

Are you interested in making a tutorial to install lynx 4.3.8 on ubuntu 20.04 LTS? Just replace some of your current tutorial with the changes i just posted. Its actually just a couple lines changed, mostly updating mongo and noe to a different ver. BUT you would have a tutorial for ubuntu 20.04 LTS AND the latest, more modern version of lynxchan!!! The commands i uploaded are literally all i ran and it worked 4 times in a row, no error messages or anything, AND the newer ver of lynx has the ability to store files on drive instead of mongo. Its supposed to make it faster and more reliable.
>>1529 Appreciated, a much needed update will be done soon, thank you.
>>1531 The code i poseted worked fine. Used to be for the current ver ppl had all sorts of probs, most were told by steve lynx to compile node and ffmpeg and imagmagic from source,. then delet the node_modules dir and run npm install in that directory to rebuild the directory. So anyways, i did tons and tons of testing, and the posted lines of code made it so there is no error message ever on starting lynxchan, so i never had to delete the node_modules dir and run npm install at all, which is awesome. You know way more than me about lynxchan im sure, but keep in mind if you install ffmpeg, imagemagic, node and mongo exactly as I posted, on ubuntu 20.04 lts on digital ocean it works fine with no hastle which is a big deal. Might as well update to 4.3.8 and also ubuntu 20.04 Lts, right? Both have long time before they ate totally outdated. That will be awesome if you make another tutorial. Thanks!!!!!!!!
>>1532 I think you can keep your tutorial, just update it and tell ppl to use ubuntu 20.04 LTS, and update the tutorial to the newer node ver, (14) and imagemagic, mongo install like i posted how i did, then compile ffmpeg from source like i did. When i dont compile ffmpeeg there is that warning message whenever i start lynxchan. --UPDATE--- shit i see lynx "updated the setup script" 14 hrs ago, in his git, hopefully nothing changed so it still works fine with the way i posted.
oah fuck he just changed to 2.5.x ,,, the code i posted works fine on 2.4.x not sure if it works on 2.5.x or not

The posted code is good to go for lynxchan latest! (ver 2.5.0)
so... ubuntu 20.04 LTS and lynxchan latest (version 2.5.0) starts up each time without any errors or warnings at all. Literally, all you have to do is change a couple lines in your tutorial, use the code i posted. It works fine with or without checking the admin box to store files on disk, which is supposed to be way easier on the server. You could update your tutorial in like 1 minute, and people would have a nice tutorial for the latest version with ubuntu 20.04!!!! Please please do it, it really helps new ppl to install lynxchan and it means a lot to ppl. Thanks!!!!!!!!
