Thanks, Ron. Since I don’t know Linux do you feel I would have a better chance of getting the mt-daapd working that I installed from the Unslung package or are there other reasons to move to the nightlies? It is too late and I am too tired to try more tonight, but I am game to go whichever route you feel best. Based on the comments of richo132 above, if I can correct the mt-daapd.conf file I then may be able to get mt-daapd to work on my configuration.

If the stable release works for you, that’s the way to go. If you find that you want the features of a newer release (transcoding, etc), then that’s the way to go.

But it might be easier to get this going first just to get a taste of success. 🙂

What is the best (easiest?) way to edit files on the NSLU2? Sorry to be such a Linux newbie in all of this.

Someone on a previous thread recommended “joe”, which you can install with “ipkg install joe”. Then just “joe /opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf” as root to edit it.

Good luck.
