But when we start talking about installing binaries, and compiling files etc, it all starts to go over my head 🙂 Where do I get all this stuff, and what commands are needed etc.

Gotcha. First, do the install of 0.2.1 like mlomker talked about, install it, and do the sort symlink thing that he talks about in the other thread.

Once you have that, then get the 0.2.5 package onto your linkstation. You can probably do something like:

[email protected]:~$ wget

and pull the file down to your linkstation that way. Do:

[email protected]:~$ tar -xvzf mt-daapd-0.2.5.tar.gz
[email protected]:~$ cd mt-daapd-0.2.5
[email protected]:~$ ./configure
[email protected]:~$ make

If all that went okay, you should have a “mt-daapd” sitting in the src directory under mt-daapd-0.2.5.

Copy that over the top of where the old mt-daapd was. (probably /sbin/mt-daapd, or /usr/sbin/mt-daapd, or /opt/sbin/mt-daapd). Then start it as normal. (/opt/etc/init.d/S60mt-daapd, maybe? I’m not sure if those packages come from unslung optware or not).
