Going to 'wiki it up' later


cd /tmp (changed from tmp)
wget http://downloads.linkstationwiki.net/development_tools/<flavour>-tools-2_1.tgz
mkdir devtools
cd devtools
tar xzvf ../<flavour>-tools-2_1.tgz
./install.sh
cd .. 
wget http://umn.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/mad/libid3tag-0.15.1b.tar.gz
tar -xvzf libid3tag-0.15.1b.tar.gz
cd libid3tag-0.15.1b
./configure --prefix=/usr/local
make install
  • Install sqlite
cd .. 
wget http://www.sqlite.org/sqlite-2.8.17.tar.gz
tar -xvzf sqlite-2.8.17.tar.gz
cd sqlite-2.8.17
./configure --prefix=/usr/local
make install
  • [OPTIONAL - FLAC / OGG VORBIS TRANSCODE]
    • Install Ogg lib
cd .. 
wget http://downloads.xiph.org/releases/ogg/libogg-1.1.3.tar.gz
tar -xvzf libogg-1.1.3.tar.gz
cd libogg-1.1.3
./configure --prefix=/usr/local
make install
    • Install Vorbis Lib
cd .. 
wget http://downloads.xiph.org/releases/vorbis/libvorbis-1.1.2.tar.gz
tar -xvzf libvorbis-1.1.2.tar.gz
cd libvorbis-1.1.2
./configure --prefix=/usr/local
make install

These libraries need to be registered with the linker. This can be done by creating a file called ld.so.conf in /etc as follows;

vi /etc/ld.so.conf

edit the file to add the line;

/usr/local/lib

save and exit. Then type

ldconfig -v

verify that the ogg and vorbis libs are listed.

  • Install flac
cd .. 
wget http://kent.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/flac/flac-1.1.2.tar.gz
tar -xvzf flac-1.1.2.tar.gz
cd flac-1.1.2
./configure --prefix=/usr/local
make install

The flac libs also need to be registered, so;

ldconfig -v
  • OPTIONAL - HOWL INSTALL - REQUIRED FOR MULTIPLE INSTANCES
cd .. (get back to /tmp directory)
wget http://www.porchdogsoft.com/download/howl-1.0.0.tar.gz
tar -xvzf howl-1.0.0.tar.gz
cd howl-1.0.0
./configure --prefix=/usr/local
make install

The howl libs need to be registered, so (assuming you've added the line to /etc/ld.so.conf as above);

ldconfig -v


  • Install firefly (for 1359 nightly - obviously check for the latest and alter accordingly...)
cd .. (get back to /tmp directory)
wget http://nightlies.mt-daapd.org/dl.php?FILE=mt-daapd-svn-1359.tar.gz
mv dl.php?FILE=mt-daapd-svn-1359.tar.gz mt-daapd-svn-1359.tar.gz
tar -xvzf mt-daapd-svn-1359.tar.gz
cd mt-daapd-svn-1359

EITHER (assuming flac, ogg and howl built)

./configure --prefix=/usr/local --enable-browse --enable-query --enable-mdns --enable-howl --with-howl-includes=/usr/local/include/howl --with-id3tag=/usr/local --sysconfdir=/etc --enable-sqlite --enable-flac --enable-oggvorbis

OR

./configure --prefix=/usr/local --enable-browse --enable-query --enable-mdns --with-id3tag=/usr/local --sysconfdir=/etc --enable-sqlite
make install
mkdir /usr/local/etc/mt-daapd
cp contrib/mt-daapd.* /usr/local/etc/mt-daapd/
cd /usr/local/etc/mt-daapd/


vi mt-daapd.conf (use vi editor to modify config file as/if required. Some help on vi; http://www.cs.colostate.edu/helpdocs/vi.html) You probably need at least to change the location of the music files to /mnt/hda

(allow any user to write to mt-daapd.conf to allow web interface to modify it)

chmod o=rw mt-daapd.conf 

Check it's works

/usr/local/sbin/mt-daapd

Wait a while then access;

http://<linkstation-ip>:3689
Username is nobody
Password is mt-daapd

Unless you've modified it in mtdaapd.conf

Create a startup script; (from http://wiki.mt-daapd.org/wiki/Quickstart_LinkStation)

cd /etc/init.d
vi mt-daapd-startup

Enter the following lines (between the ****s)

# !/bin/sh
# make sure our shared libraries are in the path.
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/lib
if [ -n "`pidof mt-daapd`" ] ; then
killall mt-daapd 2>/dev/null
fi
/usr/local/sbin/mt-daapd -c /usr/local/etc/mt-daapd.conf

Mark the file as executable;

chmod +x mt-daapd-startup

Create a symbolic link to this file in the startup dir;

ln -s mt-daapd-startup /etc/rc.d/rc2.d/S93mtdaapd


  • To add multiple instances*

create new subdirectories under /usr/local/var/cache/mt-daapd which correspond to the databases required. eg.

mkdir /usr/local/var/cache/mt-daapd/albums/

Set appropriate permissions

chown nobody:nogroup /usr/local/var/cache/mt-daapd/albums
chmod u+w /usr/local/var/cache/mt-daapd/albums

Create a new startup mt-daapd.conf with the appropriate path to the database dir (eg mt-daapd.albums.conf)

Modify the starup script to start mt-daapd using this conf file;

/usr/local/sbin/mt-daapd -c /usr/local/etc/mt-daapd.albums.conf

The startup script must also start Howl (mDNSResponder)

/usr/local/bin/mDNSResponder

(this should be started before the mt-daapd instances)
