    What a nightmare.
    My first attemp at mt-daapd followed the advice here:-

    http://www.linkstationwiki.net/index.php?title=Mt-daapd_binaries_for_the_PPC_LinkStation

    but when I tried the nightly you kindly supplied , there were issues with Squlite so I decide to try to remove all trace of the early instalation. Unfortunately when I rebooted the terastation, It wouldn’t come up and for a while I thought I had bricked it.
    luckily, I managed to reinstall the firmware in recovery mode which worked, albeit in Japanese.

    I’ll try again tomorrow

    Ps which version of sqlite do you recommend?

    Wow.. props for soldering on, though. 🙂

    Ps which version of sqlite do you recommend?

    Sqlite2 has probably been more tested, but I haven’t heard any problems iwth sqlite3 > 3.3.5 in a long time.

    Right, back in the land of the living. Terastation working and in english too. All I need now is a suitable binary of sqlite as I’m NOT going to install a development system on the terastation.

    I’m writing a full account of experiences of getting mt-daapd going on my tearstation (ha!) and can post a url if anybody’s interested.

    Oh, a bit late, but if a tool for Windows is sufficient, I can only recommend Total Commander, for which a DEB-plugin exists. Very comfortable, it allows browsing of DEBs and even included archives as if they were folders.

    Or directly on the TeraStation: Midnight Commander for Linux (& more) allows to browse .deb files as well. There’s even a tutorial on how to install MC on the TeraStation on the TS wiki, written by myself 😉
    No dev tools needed, just download packages, convert and install them. “Alternative” and “Installation” on that list should be the sufficient steps.

    Just to add a few other methods to your deb-browsing list 😉

    Either I’m doning something really stupid or there are issues with the nightly I’m using and the Home Server varient of the Terastation becuase I had to re-install the firmware again yesterday. Could this be anything to do with the fact that it already running a music server (PCast?)

    Can anybody suggest which is the most stable version of mt-daapd to use in my situation?

    Thanks

    Well, as I already posted somewhere I think, the hacked TeraStation version (opened SSH) never ran very stable for me (not the Home edition, no PCast imho), that’s why I switched my music server over to a Kurobox, and went back to the fully official firmware. In my case though, stability was unrelated to mt-daapd.

    I wish there would be a simpler way to install Debian on the TS 🙁
