    hi Ravi
    I have an old HP TC1100 tablet PC with Fedora 23 and I tried to install Kodi w/o success. So I was searching for an alternative and I thought I had found it coming across you page.
    However the command: sudo dnf install kffmpegthumbnailer
    I got this:
    Error: nothing provides kdsbase-workspace needed by kffmpegthumbnailer-1.1.0-8.fcc.1686
    (try to add ‘–allowerasing’ t command line to replace conflicting packages)
    so I tried: sudo dnf install kffmpegthumbnailer –allowerasing
    but it came back with the same error message

    so I decided to ignore that step and continue. Everything worked fine until I tried:
    cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config –prefix`
    I got this:
    — The CXX compiler identification is unknown
    CMake Error at CMakeList.txt:l (project):
    No CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER could be found

    here’s the content of the files CMakeError.log and CMakeOutput.log

    CMakeOutput.log——————————————
    The system is: Linux – 4.2.3-300.fc23.i686 – i686
    Compiling the C compiler identification source file “CMakeCCompilerId.c” succeeded.
    Compiler: /usr/bin/cc
    Build flags:
    Id flags:

    The output was:
    0

    Compilation of the C compiler identification source “CMakeCCompilerId.c” produced “a.out”

    The C compiler identification is GNU, found in “/home/Franz/plasma-mediacenter/build/CMakeFiles/3.4.1/CompilerIdC/a.out”

    Determining if the C compiler works passed with the following output:
