Hello and thanks again for all your help.
I have done exactly as it says in the unslung README that they say is mandatory to follow to the point, which I did. So, I “ipkg”:ed out mt-daapd and that’s about it what I have installed outside of what that README implies.
Oh yes, I have also installed midnight commander.
As for the external disc, it is ext3.
How many songs do you have in your corpus?
