Contents

Requirements

  1. Lots of good music
  2. Something to play lots of your good music on - Like a Roku Soundbridge
  3. Or iTunes on your pc

Installation

apt-get install libid3tag0 libid3tag0-dev
apt-get install sqlite libsqlite0-dev
apt-get install g++
cd /tmp

Download Firefly mediaserver You will need to check out [the nightlies] and change the address below to the latest version

wget http://nightlies.mt-daapd.org/dl.php?FILE=mt-daapd-svn-1498.tar.gz

Untar and enter folder (replace with whatever latest version is)

tar -zxvf mt-daapd-svn-1498.tar.gz && cd mt-daapd-svn-1498


Configure it with the following (all one line)

./configure --prefix=/usr/local --enable-browse --enable-query --enable-mdns --with-id3tag=/usr/local --enable-sqlite 
--sysconfdir=/etc 

Make and install it

make install
mkdir /etc/mt-daapd
cp contrib/mt-daapd.* /etc/mt-daapd/
cd /etc/mt-daapd
pico mt-daapd.conf

Should only need to change where to look for your music files

Starting at boot

I've nicked the start script from andre's mt-daapd ppc package (if you don't mind andre)

pico /etc/init.d/firefly

and add all this

#! /bin/sh
set -e

# /etc/init.d/firefly: start and stop the DAAP daemon

DAEMON=/usr/local/sbin/mt-daapd
DAAPD_OPTS=""
DAAPD_CONFIG_FILE=/etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf

test -x $DAEMON || exit 0 

case "$1" in
 start)
   if ! grep -q /usr/local/lib /etc/ld.so.conf; then
     echo /usr/local/lib >> /etc/ld.so.conf
     ldconfig
   fi

   echo -n "Starting DAAP daemon: firefly"
   if pidof $DAEMON >/dev/null 2>&1; then
     echo " apparently already running."
   exit 0
   fi
   if [ ! -s "$DAAPD_CONFIG_FILE" ]; then
     echo " missing or empty config file $DAAPD_CONFIG_FILE"
     exit 1
   fi
   start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --background \
     --exec $DAEMON -- -c "$DAAPD_CONFIG_FILE" $DAAPD_OPTS
   echo "."
   ;;
 stop)
   echo -n "Stopping DAAP daemon: firefly"
   killall $DAEMON >/dev/null 2>&1
   echo "."
   ;;

 restart)
   set +e
   echo -n "Restarting DAAP daemon: firefly"
   killall $DAEMON >/dev/null 2>&1
   sleep 2
   if ! start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --background \
     --exec $DAEMON -- -c "$DAAPD_CONFIG_FILE" $DAAPD_OPTS
   then
     echo "start failed?"
   fi
   echo "."
   ;;

 *)
   echo "Usage: /etc/init.d/firefly {start|stop|restart}"
   exit 1
esac

exit 0

Then add the links

cd /etc/rc2.d && ln -s /etc/init.d/firefly S20firefly
cd /etc/rc6.d && ln -s /etc/init.d/firefly K20firefly
cd /etc/rc0.d && ln -s /etc/init.d/firefly K20firefly

Think it needs one of these

chmod a+x /etc/init.d/firefly

Run it

Should be able to start it up now

/usr/local/sbin/mt-daapd

or better still use the start/stop script

/etc/init.d/firefly start

This errors because it looks for mt-daapd.conf in /usr/local/etc/mt-daapd.conf ??

I've just linked to it

mkdir /usr/local/etc
ln -s /etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf  /usr/local/etc/mt-daapd.conf

Try it now

/etc/init.d/firefly start

Issue top and you should see mt-daapd at the top of the list -

top

Once that dissapears (it has finished checking your music library) you should be able to see it via the web interface

http://<LINKSTATION-IP>:3689

You can put whatever you like as user but the passwd is mt-daapd

That should show you something like this

Run over to your Roku Soundbridge and check if its working - then fire up iTunes on your pc and see all your files
