Reply To: Running Two Copies of Firefly on a Single NSLU2


With all the stores decked out for Christmas, I decided it was time to get all my Christmas music on my NSLU2 and see about running two copies of Firefly; one for our regular music and one strictly for Christmas Music. I setup a new folder on the NSLU2’s disk called ‘xmasmp3’ and created a new config file called ‘xmas-daapd.conf’ as shown below.

web_root        /opt/share/mt-daapd/admin-root
port 3690
admin_pw mt-daapd
db_dir /opt/var/xt-daapd
mp3_dir /share/flash/data/public/xmasmp3
servername XMAS Music
runas guest
playlist /opt/etc/mt-daapd/xt-daapd.playlist
extensions .mp3,.m4a,.m4p
#logfile = /var/log/mt-daapd.log
rescan_interval 600
always_scan 0

I then enter the following via telenet to start the second copy of Firefly:

/opt/sbin/mt-daapd -c /opt/etc/mt-daapd/xmas-daapd.conf

When I turn on my Soundbridge, I can now select which music library I want to listen to; either our regular library or our Christmas library.

Since I am a Linux newbie, I would appreciate a post if anyone spots a problem with what I have done. Otherwise, I have documented what I did for anyone else that may find this useful.
