    I have moved on from a PC running Firefly and now have an NSLU2. I have managed to install and unsling Linux (Firmware Version: V2.3R63-uNSLUng-6.8-beta) but now need help getting mt-daapd working. The problem, I think, is that I have a Pinnacle M1001.

    Using the

    ipkg install mt-daapd

    worked fine, and I version 0.2.4-2 installed and it appears to be running OK. Unfortunately the Soundbridge will not connect to it. I have read somewhere that the stable release will not work with the Pinnacle, and I need to install a nightly.And that is where I grind to a halt. Have searched the WIKI and Forums, but can’t find the answer.

    So – the questions:
    1) Which nightly do I need to install
    2) What is the full ipkg command I should use to install it.




    Im not linux literate at all but I’ve just done this on a friend’s slug and it worked without any problems.

    Download mt-daapd_svn-1498-1_armeb.ipk and drop it in the public folder on your hdd (either \Slugadmin 1public or \Slugdisk 1)

    Then from the telnet session:

    cd /tmp
    cp /share/hdd/data/public/mt-daapd_svn-1498-1_armeb.ipk /tmp
    ipkg update
    ipkg install gdbm
    ipkg install libid3tag
    ipkg install -force-overwrite mt-daapd_svn-1498-1_armeb.ipk
    cp /share/hdd/data/public/
    ipkg install libao_0.8.6-1_armeb.ipk
    ipkg update
    ipkg upgrade flac

    Then make the necessary changes to the config file and re-start the slug.


    Thanks M@rk – works a treat.

    Only needed to install the nightly with ipkg

    ipkg install -force-overwrite mt-daapd_svn-1498-1_armeb.ipk

    (once I had copied the .ipk file to a suitable location). All the other installs appeared to be carried out automatically.

    I am listening to the Soundbridge as I compose this reply. 😀


    To take the manual download step out of a Firefly slug install see the ‘Firefly Installation’ of this page;


    Hope that helps!
