    First of all thank you for this really nice suitable software!!!

    I bought the Activity Media Server AMS 150 from Fujitsu Siemens. It’s a NAS with the following values

    processor       : 0
    cpu : 82xx
    revision : 16.20 (pvr 8081 1014)
    bogomips : 176.94
    vendor : Motorola
    machine : MPC8241
    processor : PVID: 0x80811014, vendor: Motorola

    Linux version 2.4.32 (andy@friends) (gcc version 3.2.3) #1 Mon Aug 28 20:13:32 CST 2006

    The NAS comes originally without telnet, but the gents from the FS AMS 150 forum found a way to install some tools like telnet, ssh a.s.o. with some help from the DSM-G600 friends.
    I unpacked their for the DSM compiled version ( and copied it into the recommended directories, hopefully.

    drwxrwxrwx    3 501      501          4096 Jun 30 08:59 mt-daapd

    Amongst others I did

    mkdir -p /mnt/HD_a2/mt-daapd/cache
    ln -s /mnt/HD_a2/mt-daapd/ /lib/
    ln -s /mnt/HD_a2/mt-daapd/ /lib/
    ln -s /mnt/HD_a2/mt-daapd/ /lib/ /mnt/HD_a2/mt-daapd
    mt-daapd -c /mnt/HD_a2/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf

    with the mt-daapd.conf

    web_root	/mnt/HD_a2/mt-daapd/admin-root
    port 3689
    admin_pw mt-daapd
    db_dir /mnt/HD_a2/mt-daapd/cache
    mp3_dir /mnt/Music
    servername mt-daapd
    runas nobody
    extensions .mp3,.m4a,.m4p

    After manual starting

    /mnt/HD_a2/mt-daapd/mt-daapd -c /mnt/HD_a2/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf

    I receive the following error message

    /mnt/HD_a2/mt-daapd/mt-daapd: can't resolve symbol '__ctype_b'

    I googled a bit and found out that this is supposed to be a compiling error caused by a wrong lib.

    Here it ends for me so far.
    Any idea? Do I have to cross compile (Oh god, how?) mt-daapd for the AMS 150 or is there any other solution? Thank you.


    Care to try a newer version? holds quite a few flavours ๐Ÿ˜‰


    Thank you for the Link, but i don’t know which one?

    How do i compile the .tar.gz for the Linux version on my AMS 150?


    Not without a complete toolchain. Which is tough.

    Whats the

    uname -a

    output of your machine?

    Depending on your model being RevA or RevB, and according to its a PPC, so you could always give it a try with one of the PPC binaries or ipkgs from that site.

    If there is no ipkg available, the ipk is just a tar-gz’d file that has a data and config archive within. You can extract them manually and try to run the binary to see wether its compatible.


    Hi fizze,

    uname -a gives a failure. The program is not installed …

    And it is_not_ a DSM-G600! I read in the Siemens Forum that the AMS 150 is more or less similar to the DSM.

    Ahhh. Ok. I see. I clicked your link.

    Ok. How do i manually extract the ipk file?

    Mmmh. Google says tar xvzf blabla.ipk.

    Let me try …


    So. I could manually extract mt-daapd_svn-1673-1ds101g_powerpc.ipk and received 3 different files.

    Oct 4 05:14 control.tar.gz
    791162 Oct 4 05:14 data.tar.gz
    4 Oct 4 05:14 debian-binary

    I extracted data.tar.gz and get a directory named /opt.

    What am I do with this?


    Well browse into that directory, somewhere within resides the binary ๐Ÿ˜‰

    usually in /opt/bin or /opt/usr/bin.


    Do i just have to replace the old binary on the AMS 150 or do i need the whole directory structure?


    As the binary is newer and requires generally new libs, you probably have to replace a lot more.

    As there is no guarantee this will work, just a tryout, just +x the new binary and try to fire it up and see what happens ๐Ÿ™‚

    if it works, go ahead and replace the existing one, if not, tough luck.


    fizze, i replaced just the binary and reboot. It seems to run.

    Whats about the libraries? Any need for that?
