thanks for your reply. It took me a while but know I’ve got mt-daapd successfully installed. I’m not quite sure if it’s right.

But know I’m heading towards the next problem how get I the mt-daapd service started?

On the command line I entered: mt-daapd But nothing happend. I’m not able to use the web interface by using http://myIP:3698.

And when I entered on the command line: ps aux | grep mt-daapd I didn’t received a task number.

Do might be have an idea whats going wrong?

Thanks so far for your help and patience

First thing is to copy the sample config file contrib/mt-daapd.conf to /etc, and edit it to taste.

Next, copy contrib/init.d/mt-daapd-suse to /etc/init.d/mt-daapd

Now, you will want to make it start automatically at boot. I *think* that’s something like “insserv mt-daapd” on suse. Then “/etc/init.d/mt-daapd start” should start it immediately.

I think that’s it.
