Ok, so I thought I’d follow the instructions for the MSS setup, using this guide.

http://wiki.fireflymediaserver.org/MSS_Installation

I figured since my twonkyvision install is the MSS version, I might have some success using this guide. Being a complete novice with linux, 2 days and counting I have gotten so far using this guide.

# echo “src nslu2 http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/optware/mss/cross/unstable” > /opt/etc/ipkg.conf
# echo “src firefly http://ipkg.fireflymediaserver.org/mipsel” >> /opt/etc/ipkg.conf
# ipkg update
# ipkg install mt-daapd
# ipkg install mss-libhelper
# ipkg install mss-ld-so

I am able to execute the first two commands successfully. I have double checked the ipkg.conf and they appear.

The issue arises when I perform the ipkg update command, I am receiving the following message.

# ipkg: not found

Does anyone know what is causing this? Thanks

I think perhaps it doesn’t have the unslung system. If you can’t find a version of unslung for the WD, then you might be okay to just untar the ipkg (rename it to .tar.gz and extract the files with winzip or some other archiver), and copying the files to the places they exist on the drive.

You’ll need to ignore the CONTROL directory, as that has presetup scripts, but the actual binary files should be in the opt directory. Just put them in the same place and run it with /opt/sbin/mt-daapd -c /opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf (if that’s where the config file is — I think it is), and see where that gets you.
