    mt-daapd: 0.2.4-2
    Server Hardware: Synology DS-106e running NSLU2
    Client Device: iTunes 7.1.1 for Windows

    The installation of mt-daapd 0.2.4-2 was easy. I did it like it was described on http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/Optware/Mt-daapd.

    After this installation i tried to update to the newest relase, but it didnt work. I tried it like this:

    1. echo “src firefly http://ipkg.fireflymediaserver.org/armeb” > /etc/ipkg/firefly.conf
    2. ipkg update
    3. ipkg install mt-daapd

    There were no Error-Messages at all. But the mt-daapd is still on Version 0.2.4-2.

    So i tried to find the mistake. Is ist possible, that in the Package list http://ipkg.fireflymediaserver.org/armeb/Packages is an error. I think about the mt-daapd-Source

    Thx for every Help!

    Don’t quote me on this, but I think mt-daapd 0.2.4 is the most recent version of the daap daemon and protocol.

    Well if you installed a nighlty build, you can update nightly builds of firefly by first doing:

    first backup config file and playlists (ie. mt-daap.conf)

    If using Unslung:

    cd /tmp
    wget http://nightlies.mt-daapd.org/dl.php?FILE=mt-daapd_svn-xxxx-1_armeb.ipk
    ipkg install -force-overwrite mt-daapd_svn-xxxx-1_armeb.ipk
    recopy config and playlists

    the temp downloaded files will be purged on reboot. Note: check the nighlty builds list at the firefly download page and replace xxxx with the build you want.

    you’ll find some more information here:
    http://wiki.fireflymediaserver.org/NSLU2_Installation

    Just scroll down to the *Installing a nightly build* section

    Thx for your answers!

    @stretch
    This is the same way i did.

    @pender
    I did it your way, but im still not sure, if i got the newest version of Firefly. I try to find the version nr. in the log-file, but i couldnt find it. How can i find the version nr?

    I think the easiest way is to use the web manangement tool. If it is a nighltly build, it will say what daap version you have in the server status view or in the about firefly view.

    http://nslu2-ip:port/about.html

    The nighlty download page is at http://nightlies.mt-daapd.org/ so you can check if there is a newer version you want to manually update to. If you are using unslung, the package manager (ipkg update && ipkg upgrade) will not update nighlty builds unless you add the firefly nighlty feed to the ipkg sourcelist, but if your client devices can access firefly without complications, there really is no need to update all the time.

    Some suggest that nighlties have better compatibility with clients other than iTunes such as the Roku SB with only svn-14xx and XBMC with svn-1498 or newer.

    The synology 106 is powerpc, not armeb. I don’t have a synology feed set up. Someone was asking for one, though, and if they can provide me with toolchain setup instructions, I’ll start providing nightly builds for it.

    But right now I don’t. If you want to run nightlies, you’ll have to either wait for me to put together a build chain for it, or build it yourself on the device itself.

    I didn’t notice you were running a PPC unit. Stole this instruction from Synology thread. Credits to a person with the pseudonym netshare. They say there is a PPC version of the disk station 101 which has a mt-daapd ipk. Some have been able to get it working on the ds-106.

    If you have busy-box working you can use the wget command instead of manually downloading and transferring to the device.

    A. activate telnet: – http://oinkzwurgl.org/software/ssods/

    B. install ipkg:

    download http://capcop.free.fr/tele/ds101-bootstrap_0.1-8_powerpc.xsh in public (NAS)

    telnet //(IP NAS) activate as root-user:

    cd /volume1/public
    sh ds101-bootstrap_0.1-8*.xsh //
    ipkg update

    C. install mt-daapd

    1. ipkg install mt-daapd
    2. ?ber ftp /opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf – indicate mp3 path; ex: /volume1/music
    3. /opt/etc/init.d/S60mt-daapd
    4. Browser : 192.168.xxx.xxx:3689
    og : admin_pw
    passw : mt-daapd

    If this does not work, you can try to install it from source. This was taken from a PPC Buffalo Linkstation (LS1) turtorial. You will need compilation tools for your Synology like gcc. There is an other link in the instructions for the Development tools (gcc etc.) for a Linkstation PPC but they are precompiled and probably wont work on the DS106.
