Still – using the

gives me the following message:

That’s no message, that’s the editing program!

Still, vi is pretty ugly. You might try nano:

# ipkg install nano
# export term=vt100
# nano /opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf

Then you can scroll with the cursor keys (or ctrl-n), and scroll down the lin that says:

mp3_dir /share/hdd/data/mp3

Press “ctrl-k” while you are sitting on that line. Then, add the line you want:

mp3_dir /share/flash/data/mp3

Then “ctrl-w” to write the file and “ctrl-x” to exit.

If you make a mistake, just do “ctrl-x” to exit, and tell it you don’t want to save when it asks.

You should be good then.

NOTE: Make sure you are using putty, not windows telnet!
