    mt-daapd/Firefly 0.2.4,
    Server Operating System: unknown ppc linux
    Server Hardware: TeraStation Home Server HS-D1.0TGL/R5
    Client Device: Roku Soundbridge M1001 Pinnacle branded for UK

    I’ve got mt-daapd running on the Terastation and can see it as a share in iTunes but the Soundbridge complains “Incompatible server found”

    I don’t know where to start looking for a solution.

    Thanks

    Bad form, but further investigation reveals that I may need rsp.so. Wher can I find such a thing?

    Ahh… that you’ll need to move to a nightly for. Where did you get the 0.2.4 version from? Do they have a nightlies version?

    Seems like someone had a pointer to nightlies on the terrastation. Anyone?

    TeraStation? Debian or Montavista Linux (the original Linux)?

    Debian is simple, take the sarge PowerPC version. The hacked original is way more complicated thanks to all the dependencies (though if 0.2.4 runs, it already has a lot of them). I don’t have my TeraStation hacked currently since it was unstable back then and I need it for daily work, so I haven’t really tried nightlies on it for a long time.

    Don’t wish to appear too stupid, but how do you unpack a .deb file? All my previous experience with Unix has been Fedora or Irix

    Thanks

    http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gcl/cvs/HOWTO-UNPACK-DEBS. They are really just “ar” archives, with some control files (pre-install scripts, post-install scripts, etc).

    Should be able to just extract them with ar and pull the binaries out.

    Actually I’d be really gratefull if somebody could help me out. I’ve ordered a CD of Debian and will install it on my PC but in the meantime can anyone supply me with an ‘un-ar-ed’ version of the nightlies. pretty please

    What a nightmare.
    My first attemp at mt-daapd followed the advice here:-

    http://www.linkstationwiki.net/index.php?title=Mt-daapd_binaries_for_the_PPC_LinkStation

    but when I tried the nightly you kindly supplied , there were issues with Squlite so I decide to try to remove all trace of the early instalation. Unfortunately when I rebooted the terastation, It wouldn’t come up and for a while I thought I had bricked it.
    luckily, I managed to reinstall the firmware in recovery mode which worked, albeit in Japanese.

    I’ll try again tomorrow

    Ps which version of sqlite do you recommend?

    Ooof… that’s gotta make you queasy.

    Wow.. props for soldering on, though. 🙂

    Ps which version of sqlite do you recommend?

    Sqlite2 has probably been more tested, but I haven’t heard any problems iwth sqlite3 > 3.3.5 in a long time.

    Right, back in the land of the living. Terastation working and in english too. All I need now is a suitable binary of sqlite as I’m NOT going to install a development system on the terastation.

    I’m writing a full account of experiences of getting mt-daapd going on my tearstation (ha!) and can post a url if anybody’s interested.

    Ps still can’t get my ‘Nicknoxx’ account working
