Again I don’t know much about Linux, but it apparently tells the system to run something named mt-daapd that exists on the HD_a2/mt-daapd folder – and pass additional parameters to the program. Is that correct?

Exactly right. /mnt/HD_a2/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf should be the configuration file., so that file should exist also.

Well, from all packages that I tried either on the nightlies or on the old stable 0.2.4, there is nothing named mtdaap on that directory to be ran.

What stupidity am I doing???

The instructions for extracting it look kind of lame. Download the mt-daapd-0.2.4.tar.bz2 file from the bottom of the howto page, and put it somewhere on the dsm that you can find it from the linux side. Once you have that, you need to extract it, something like this:

mkdir /mnt/HD_a2/mt-daapd
cd /mnt/HD_a2/mt-daapd
/mnt/HD_a2/bzcat /path/to/mt-daapd-0.2.4.tar.bz2 | /mnt/HD_a2/tar -xvf -

That should put the files where they are expected.

Then follow the fun_plug directions listed on the rest of the page.
