It is a matter of taste of course. Not sure, what you found "so hard" using nohup.

Definitely. It has a ton of other functions that's why I am using it rn. With nohup, you get a longer command. And you have to redirect the stderr to into the log. The screen does that automatically. And also, the background running doesn't require any shell tricks (&). :)
Thanks nas-central the lot of help! :)

I get this error:

Checking support/features
ERROR: No C compiler found


Am I doing it wrong? Gcc4.92 is installed, and I understand (read your comment) the workaround for atomics.
But somehow it is not working

EDIT:
never mind, got it working.
I simply rebootet and installed git before.
Now its compiling.

Package Version 4.2. stable Git Master from today 20.02.2018:

Edit: thanks Mijzelf,

uploaded it to mediafire

http://www.mediafire.com/file/434sl5rlm ... -arm-1.txz

Its working for me (SAT to IP Tuner), only the version info in TVHeadend shows 0.0.0 unknown - but thats no dealbreaker.
I will recompile it if there are important changes.

I can recommend Mediafire. 10 years ago I needed some webspace for sharing files (for the NSA220, then), and I could get 500MB for free. That files are still there, (and downloaded thousands of times) and meanwhile my space has grown to 50GB. It all has been hassle free for me. There is only one problem, it's not suitable for hosting 'automatic' repo's. Download is only possible with a browser.
