This is a complete bundle that includes all the recursive dependencies and requires nothing but a recent-enough Linux kernel, hence its rather big size! As soon as you download Next for GNU/Linux,

  • extract the archive (e.g. with tar xf /path/to/download/file -- you need lzip),
  • execute ./usr/local/bin/next to get started!

The archive does not have to be extracted to the filesystem root (/). This pack relies either on the "user namespace" feature of the Linux kernel or on PRoot to setup a virtual root folder for Next in the root of the extracted archive.

If Next does not work for you at this point, you might have to enable user namespaces. Try to run the following in a shell:

sudo sysctl -w kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone=1

If the previous command did not work

You might have to issue the following instead:
sudo sh -c 'echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/userns_restrict'
or, depending on your kernel compilation options:
sudo sh -c 'echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone'
If none of the above works, your kernel might not support user namespaces. You might have to compile a custom kernel to enable this feature, but at this point it's probably easier to install Guix and run
guix install next
or even build Next from source. Refer to your distribution for more help.

You can produce this Guix pack yourself with

guix pack -RR --no-grafts --compression=lzip --symlink=/usr/local/bin/next=bin/next next gst-plugins-good gst-plugins-bad gst-plugins-ugly gst-libav
which should yield:
