Yeah, who haven’t used stream tuner. Pity the second iteration crashes a little too much for my taste. At least on Debian

Debian (11) user here, too — Streamtuner2 works flawlessly.

Thanks for the review, I’d never heard of StreamTuner2. Works pretty well on Fedora from a couple of hours usage.

What a Python re-write means is that it will fail to install in some significant percentage of attempts due to installed differences in python installations. As “new, kewl” paradigms in python rise, working installations will mysteriously fail.

What truly amazes me is that members of the python community were some of the MOST vocal about dependency hell

More or less a well accepted solution is to put Python, dependencies and the app into a userland and run it in a container. It gives freedom, flexibility, repeated environments – one of the reason why Docker and Kubernetes are so popular.
