Reply To: New to Linux, how do I install?



I’m want to install Firefly on a ClarkConnect server, which is based on Red Hat. This is my storage server where my music files are kept which why I want Firefly there. I’ve just used

tar -zxvf libmad-0.15.1b.tar.gz
tar -zxvf madplay-0.15.2b.tar.gz
tar -zxvf libid3tag-0.15.1b.tar.gz
tar -zxvf mt-daapd-

to unpack the the files into a folder I made at /home/grs/firefly each time I unpacked them a folder containing the files was created.

From the mt-daapd readme I have to put mt-daapd.conf and mt-daapd.playlist into /etc directory. In the readme it also says

Here’s the short and sweet of it:

./configure; make; make install

I’m not sure what to do with this.

From what I understand it’s just a matter of moving the the other lib/madplay files/folders to the correct folder that they are to work from. I just can’t work out where that is though.
