Someone on a previous thread recommended “joe”, which you can install with “ipkg install joe”. Then just “joe /opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf” as root to edit it.
Oh to be a Linux guru right about now. I did some more searching and then read your suggestion which I agreed with. Joe installed fine, but I can’t find any documentation on how to use it. When I enter your command above, all I get is “joe: no such file or directory”. If anyone has a quick guide to using joe I undoubtedly need the help. IPKG STATUS says joe is installed OK.
