If I install Debian on a Linksys NSLU2 (see http://www.cyrius.com/debian/nslu2/ ) can I use the .deb packages provided by firefly’s sourceforge download page? I would tend to think that no, because of NSLU2’s ARM architecture, but then, I don’t really know too much about what stands behind these terms…
Assuming you can get debian testing running on the slug using the instructions referenced (and I imagine you can, since it’s a supported debian arch), then you can get the package that’s in debian proper, which is based on svn-1376 (by switching to testing and apt-get installing mt-daapd).
Yes, you can run mt-daapd package from debian/etch. I running this setup as I’m writing. Works great, after some tweaking, like disable converting between ogg and wav-formats. NSLU2 doesn’t have the calculation power to do this in real time. 🙂
