Nethostfs

Using nethostfs you can stream your legally backed up games, music, movies and more straight from your Linkstation to your PSP. You can also rip your games straight to your Linkstation using mediaripper

Get this version for ppc here: http://aabb6467.hp.infoseek.co.jp/pspfiles/nethostfs_kurobox.zip or here Get this version for mips here: http://downloads.linkstationwiki.net/LS2_MIPSel/Packages/mipsel-nethostfs.tar.gz

Features

  • Network Streaming

Running nethostfs

To run nethostfs you will need to have a custom firmware (3.52 m33-2 is the latest at time of writing that works with iR Shell 3.61)

Installing nethostfs

This is the server that will allow the PSP to connect to your Linkstation. You can download the source code and patch required from this Japenese guys blog HERE. The source code will compile but not work (due to Big Endian?), so there's a patch too. Fortunately there is a pre-compiled binary in there that just works, so:

cd /tmp
wget http://aabb6467.hp.infoseek.co.jp/pspfiles/nethostfs_kurobox.zip
unzip nethostfs_kurobox.zip
cd nethostfs_kurobox
cp nethostfs /usr/bin

I've then just got a script to start it at boot. You will obviously need to change "/mnt/share/PSPGames" to where your games are stored.

pico /etc/init.d/nethostfs

Copy this to it:

#!/bin/sh
#
PATH=/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/bin:${PATH}
   export PATH

   NETHOSTFS='/usr/bin/nethostfs'
   PORT='7513'

   case "$1" in
   start)
   echo -n "Starting nethostfs: "
   $NETHOSTFS -p $PORT /mnt/share/PSPGames &
   echo "done"
   sleep 1
   ;;
   stop)
   echo -n "Shutting down nethostfs: "
   $NETHOSTFS -p $PORT poweroff &
   killall nethostfs
   sleep 1
   echo "done"
   ;;
   restart)
   echo -n "Restarting nethostfs: "
   $0 stop
   sleep 1
   $0 start
   ;;
   status)
   echo "Status of nethostfs: "
   ps auxw|grep nethostfs
   ;;
   *)
echo "Usage: nethostfs {start|stop|restart|status}"
   exit 1
   esac

   exit 0

Then link it:

cd /etc/rc2.d && ln -s /etc/init.d/nethostfs S99nethostfs
cd /etc/rc6.d && ln -s /etc/init.d/nethostfs K99nethostfs
cd /etc/rc0.d && ln -s /etc/init.d/nethostfs K99nethostfs

Configuring

If you want to rip the games you legally own to your Linkstation you will need Waites "mediaripper"

Once mediaripper is installed you'll need to adjust it abit:

pico /usr/local/bin/ripper.conf
INTERVAL=60
IMGDIR="/mnt/share/Images"
VIDDIR="/mnt/share/Video"
MUSICDIR="/mnt/share/Music"
UMDDIR="/mnt/pspgames"
IMGTYPES="jpg bmp gif"
VIDTYPES="xvid mpg wmf"
MUSICTYPES="ogg mp3 wav flac"
UMDTYPES="iso dax cso"

Remove from the very bottom of usbripper.sh "umount $USBS" and "done" then add:

pico /usr/local/bin/usbripper.sh


#Get UMD
  	FINDNAME=""
	for TYPE in $UMDTYPES ; do
	 	if [ "$FINDNAME" != "" ] ; then
	 	 	FINDNAME=`echo -n "$FINDNAME -o "`
	 	fi
	 	FINDNAME=`echo "$FINDNAME -name \"*.$TYPE\" "`
	done
	FINDNAME=`echo -n " find $USBS \\( $FINDNAME \\) -print -exec cp -af {} $UMDDIR \\; "`
	eval $FINDNAME
	umount $USBS
done
