ubuntu music server for Roku?

Sun Mar 13, 2011 9:04 pm

I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 and am looking for a music server for my Roku Soundbridge to access. Apparently the fireflymediaserver website is down, i guess firefly is no longer available? What other music server can i install on ubuntu that the Soundbridge will recognize?

regards,
js.

Thanks for the feedback. I did give that a try, but it looks like the feisty repositories are no longer available at that URL.

However, soon after my original post i did find, install, test, and became satisfied with a music server that runs on Maverick, was easy to point to an iTunes library, and played through my old M500 Roku Soundbridge:
