    I have a linksys NSLU2 running Firmware Version: V2.3R63-uNSLUng-6.8-beta. (+ SSH installed)
    I followed instructions on http://wiki.fireflymediaserver.org/NSLU2_Installation
    to install a stable release of Firefly.

    I get this:
    # ps -ef | grep mt-daapd
    466 guest 1936 S /opt/sbin/mt-daapd -c /opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-
    467 guest 6452 S /opt/sbin/mt-daapd -c /opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-
    474 guest 6452 S /opt/sbin/mt-daapd -c /opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-
    475 guest 6452 S /opt/sbin/mt-daapd -c /opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-
    476 guest 6452 S /opt/sbin/mt-daapd -c /opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-
    602 ttyp0 root 2668 S grep mt-daapd
    #

    the webpage http://NAS:3689/status.html
    gives:

    Thread__Session__Host_____________Action
    41______ 0______192.168.0.101_____Serving admin pages

    Background scanner_Idle____Start Scan

    Uptime 12 minutes, 48 seconds
    Songs 0
    Songs Served 0
    DB Version 1

    My Freecom MusicPal is connected by network cable, and can play the windows media player mp3’s. But not the NSLU2 mp3’s.

    Cidero – UPnP mediacontroller does not show the NSLU2 Music server in the server list, it only shows my windows media player server.

    I did do the “chmod o+r -R /share/hdd/data/public/mp3” command on the NSLU2.

    The only strange thing that I can find up till now is that the
    “ps -ef | grep mt-daapd” command
    does not give this:

    497 guest 4004 S /opt/sbin/mt-daapd
    498 guest 11896 S /opt/sbin/mt-daapd
    507 guest 11896 S /opt/sbin/mt-daapd
    508 guest 11896 S /opt/sbin/mt-daapd
    2564 ttyp0 root 2668 S grep mt-daapd

    but instead it gives the list you can find in the beginning of my posting.

    Do you have any idea what is wrong here?
    Can you give advice to me in order to make my Freecom MusicPal play mp3’s of my NSLU2.

    PS: Cidero look at http://www.cidero.com/

    Thanks for reading !

    I installed iTunes, and there I can find my “NSLU2 music” server, but can’t see any mp3 file. Even after giving read permissions for all mp3 files to everyone.

    And there is maybe something wrong with my UPnP I think. Below I can read: upnpd &>/dev/null

    If you’ve installed the stable version i.e. 0.2.4.1-1 then it’s daap only I’m afraid.
    UPnP clients will not see the server.
    Nightlies versions use daap & rsp but UPnP is still not fully implemented

    As for the the songs not appearing in iTunes. Which port is your hard drive connected to?
    If it’s connected to USB port 2 on the NSLU2 then you have to change the path to /share/flash/data/public/mp3

    Thanks Stretch, I was using port 1 with usb harddisc.

    So I use the wrong software, firefly is not what I need for the Freecom musicpal.

    Now a question about Twonky…
    If I understand it….. there is no step by step instruction available for any Unslung version + a currently downloadable twonkymedia package.
    I found this on:
    http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/Applications/TwonkyVision

    The older twonkymedia step by step instruction
    http://howtotwonky.pbwiki.com/
    is using the twonkymedia 3.1 , I can find this old version anywhere.

    Is there any up-to-date step by step instruction available to turn my NSLU2 into a media server for my UPnP client “freecom musicpal” ?

    Yes. It’s right here

    The last line of the section titled *getting it* is a link to a zip file.
    I had a quick look at it’s contents. There is a readme file that tells you how to install.

    Ron has started to add UPnP to Firefly but it doesn’t do much yet.

    Thanks Stretch for pointing to the right point in the website.
    I followed the step by step info and it worked.
    In the last day’s I learned several new things like ipkg installations and SSH , PuTTY and WinSCP.

    Once again thank you for you help.

    Happy New Year !!!

    Now I can start to enjoy my freecom musicpal for 100%

    Regards,
    Johan
