    This is my first foray into Linux and so I am running into some problems (some of them my own fault i am guessing). My M1001 can see my itunes and play music as long as itunes is running (but defeats the purpose of this whole exercise).

    My configuration is as follows:
    mt-daapd/Firefly Version: nightly 1586
    Server Operating System: Latest Unslung build 6.8 Beta
    Server Hardware: NSLU2
    Client Device: Roku Soundbridge M1001, iTunes 7.1 for Windows and wireless access point

    I have unslung to a NSLU EXT3 formatted drive on port 2. Initially i installed through ipkg the stable firefly. I had some problems with it seeing all of my music and playlists. I did some searches and thought i needed to get the latest nightly build. I used the following to get nightly
    # echo “src firefly http://ipkg.fireflymediaserver.org/armeb” > /etc/ipkg/firefly.conf
    # ipkg update
    # ipkg install mt-daapd

    my mp3 directory is pointing to
    /share/flash/data/mp3/itunes

    now when i try and start i get the following in the log errors:

    I would like to use my iTunes XML file to run playlists but will settle for incremental successes at this point.

    I am just not sure where to go from here.

    absolutely not a linux type myself but unlung just recently. From what you’re saying, you have the unslung os on the one attached ext3 drive. Correct?

    if so, then (as far as I have read with existing documentation)

    my mp3 directory is pointing to
    /share/flash/data/mp3/itunes

    should be

    /share/hdd/data/mp3/

    and I think the /itunes/ is not necessary.

    I would like to use my iTunes XML file to run playlists but will settle for incremental successes at this point.

    my .xml file sits in the mp3 folder as a standalone item.

    I may of course be way off the mark with this being a linux newbie & of course I’m assuming you have just the one drive hooked up to the slug and not a flash drive running the os…

    be interested to know if that fixes things though

    So you’ve got a couple problems right from the get-go. Looks like you have the old config file loaded, and didn’t overwrite it when you installed nightlies.

    So reinstall the nightly with –force, and let it overwrite the config file.

    Permissions look wrong or something on that directory. Normally the cache dir is /opt/var/cache/mt-daapd, so I think you must have changed it.

    So make sure it exists and is writable by the guest user.

    [email protected]# mkdir /var/cache/mt-daapd
    [email protected]# chmod 777 /var/cache/mt-daapd

    will do it at the expense of being insecure if the box is used for multi-user stuff (which I’d guess it isn’t).

    Thanks for the help.
    I forced a reinstall of mt-daapd and overwrote the config. I can now access my music folders through M1001 (I haven’t attemped playlists yet). This was my log file on startup

    I cant get the webpage to load on 192.168.1.77:3689, are any of my errors related to this? ( I havent had a chance to search the forums for this problem yet)

    Actually the log looks fine.

    The warnings in bold are alright for a first time boot, or upgrade.

    When i got home today both the playlists and webpage are now working. I guess it just needed more time. Thanks again for the help.
