    Well, the ping within telnet failed otherwise via the status pages things look right but with the commands you gave me they sure don’t. Thanks for that.

    I think I’ll configure a static ip but what about the first two lines of the instructions – not famailar with linux??? will I need to re-enter them after I reconfigure the MSS and reboot.

    Configuring a static IP solved the problem with the previous error messages including pinging.

    When I execute the command to edit I get this screen – doesn’t seem to be displayed right??

    Great Ron, thanks for the package update, I’ll try that over the weekend.

    Iris/ Had exactly the same problem with nano after invoking telnet to the mss from a ‘dos’ prompt. Changed to PuTTY and that worked OK for me (after selecting telnet!)

    Well, I’m up and running 8) . Ron’s tutorial (after he made a couple of edits) provided enough step-by-step instructions. I did run into a couple of things:

      Confiqure a STATIC IP for the MSS. I had read this is another post but hadn’t placed a lot of emphasis on it simply because from the MSS interface my network configuration was correct and the MSS was working. However, once I tried to execute > ipkg update and got a “Host” error. A static i.p. fixed that.

      The other thing was trying to use Nano after Telneting in from a DOS prompt – the display was all screwed. Thanks to Dean’s post I used PuTTY and that resolved the issue.

    So, perhaps these two suggestions can be incorporated into the tutorial for other individuals who use it.

    I do think I have a minor clean-up to do (maybe something I missed) but on the Roku the server displays as “firefly svn-1433 on (none)”. I thought the (none) was due to the fact in the FireFly configuration a name for the server hadn’t been specified (by default) but me entering a description there didn’t change anything. Is this editable?

    I also will eventually disable/uninstall the FireFly server installed on my laptop – will have to look around for instructions on that or will simply using Add/Remove Programs under Windows suffice?

    Thanks again to Ron for his help.

    Iris

    P.S. Ron, perhaps I should delete some of my posts that weren’t really specific to the installation – do you mind?

    That shouldn’t have to be the case, but it’s probably something to recommend if people have the same errors as you get (can’t do ipkg update, etc).

    The other thing was trying to use Nano after Telneting in from a DOS prompt – the display was all screwed. Thanks to Dean’s post I used PuTTY and that resolved the issue.

    That’s good to know. I wasn’t aware of that.

    will do.

    The server name only updates on next restart. So if you change the server name you’ll have to reboot or stop and start hte server.

    I also will eventually disable/uninstall the FireFly server installed on my laptop – will have to look around for instructions on that or will simply using Add/Remove Programs under Windows suffice?

    It *should*, but somewhere the uninstaller stopped working and left cruft. 🙁 If you run the uninstaller, delete the program filesfirefly media server, and that should do it.

    P.S. Ron, perhaps I should delete some of my posts that weren’t really specific to the installation – do you mind?

    Go crazy!

    Just to close off from Thursdays post – no surprise but after installing mss-ld-so everything came together easy as… 😀

    Can now power down my desktop thats been on 24-7 serving the Roku.

    Great job……

    Hi Ron,

    Here I am on the firefly forums. I’m the same as user Rick on the Roku Forums but that username was occupied.

    I started with the installation on the MSS with the wiki step-by-step guide.
    I’m stuck with the command:
    # LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/lib /opt/bin/nano /opt/etc/init.d/S60mt-daapd

    This results in the following error:
    /opt/bin/nano: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: cannot load shared object file: No such file or directory

    I then started to think of my Unix experience 20 years ago and went to the /opt/bin-directory. A file called nano is mentioned when I do an LS, but running just the command nano from there gives a “nano: not found” and running ./nano gives the same error as the command mentioned in the wiki.

    Thank you for your help

    Two things to try:


    /opt/lib/ld.so.1 /opt/bin/nano

    and see what that does.

    Failing that, do this:


    #export LD_TRACE_LOADED_OBJECTS=1
    #/opt/lib/ld.so.1 /opt/bin/nano

    You should get a bunch of crap back. Paste that back here so we can see it.. it should be list of the libraries it’s trying to link with. That might give us a clue as to what’s missing.

    Code:

    /opt/lib/ld.so.1 /opt/bin/nano

    This gives the following error:
    /opt/bin/nano: error while loading shared libraries: libncursesw.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    Code:

    #export LD_TRACE_LOADED_OBJECTS=1
    #/opt/lib/ld.so.1 /opt/bin/nano

    This gives the following error:
    libncursesw.so.5 => not found
    libc.so.6 => /opt/lib/libc.so.6 (0x2ab00000)
    /lib/ld.so.1 => /opt/lib/ld.so.1 (0x55580000)[/quote]

    Looks to be missing libncurses. Maybe “ipkg install ncurses”? It should have been dragged in by nano though. Not sure why it wasn’t. If it came from the unslung feed, it is marked as requiring curses.

    Did you get any errors when you tried to install?

    Hi Ron,

    I first did the:

    ipkg install ncursus

    after that I tried:

    ipkg install nano

    Both didn’t solve the problem.
    Below the output:

    # ipkg install ncursus
    Nothing to be done
    An error ocurred, return value: 4.
    Collected errors:
    Cannot find package ncursus.
    Check the spelling or perhaps run ‘ipkg update’

    # ipkg install nano
    Package nano (2.0.1-1) installed in root is up to date.
    Nothing to be done

    Was that really ncursUs or ncursEs?

    What does:


    cat /opt/etc/ipkg.conf

    show?

    Hi Ron,

    I executed “ipkg install ncursus”, did a copy/paste from the telnet-session.
    Right now I see that you told me to use “ncurses”. I will give it a try as soon as I am home. Also I will give you the “cat” output if the are still errors.

    Hi Ron,

    Here I am again.

    Here is what I executed including the messages I received:

    # ipkg install ncurses
    Package ncurses (5.5-1) installed in root is up to date.
    Nothing to be done
    #
    # cat /opt/etc/ipkg.conf
    src nslu2 http://ipkg-us-dyoung.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/optware/mss/cross/unstable
    src firefly http://ipkg.fireflymediaserver.org/mipsel

    Thank you for all the effort you putting into this.
