Reply To: How-to setup Firefly on a Synology disk station (powerpc)


I just bought a DS107e and for some reason the iTunes server does not connect to both iTunes on my Mac and my Soundbridge Radio, so I decided to give it a try to install Firefly according the instructions in cstern’s post.

As I am a typical Mac user, all this technical stuff is a little difficult for me and I was quite happy to get as far as step 5d. The “cd /volume1/public” causes no problems. However, I get an error over here; after the command “ipkg install mt-da*.ipk” it says: “ipkg: invalid magic”. I also tried “ipkg install mt-daapd_svn-1696-1ds101g_powerpc.ipk” but this had the same result.

I’m kind of stuck here. I am used to funny icons, not to command line stuff. What do I need to do to get it working?
