    Hi – just purchased a slug – have had it unsling and now in serious trouble (from my point of view).

    I have a bad mp3 directory problem – since I’m a total newbie – the word “vi editor gives me the shivers”

    This is as far I have come – I’ve detected the problem (which I was aware of

    # /opt/sbin/mt-daapd -d9 -f  -m -c /opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf
    Read web_root: /opt/share/mt-daapd/admin-root

    Bad mp3 directory (/share/hdd/data/public/mp3): No such file or directory
    Error reading config file (/opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf)

    Still – using the

     # vi /opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf

    gives me the following message:

    # vi opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf

    And this is where I as a mac user and newbie gets scared – I only want to change the directory from

    share/hdd/data/mp3

    to

    share/flash/data/mp3

    Are there anyone outthere who can se I have done something wrong, and have guidelines to fix it (which will make me come back with a lot of questions) or any who knows that I only have to … and then type in whatever I need to paste into the termininal to change the directory.

    Much appriciated if you could help me

    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!

    I installed nano (with succes) but when using the code

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

    I was greeted with a bad directory message.

    But since I had taken notice of your

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

    I decided that I would give vi a go anyway – I found out that in the mac’s terminal only a small part of the conf. file was shown – old news to most of you but very new to me.

    Yesterday I had printed out a vi reference card and followed these guides together with the commands that you had sent me – and after having messed around for a few minuttes – things started to make sense and I now finally have a good slug runnning as Itunes server – thanks a million for helping me with the first steps.

    regards
    Morten
