Soundbridge and Linksys NSLU2

Wed Apr 19, 2006 7:54 pm

I want to control my 1001 with an NSLU2. I was able to reflash the linksys with unslung 6.8 beta and can telnet into it, but now I am lost.

I am running XP and know nothing about Linux.

Is there an easy step-by-step?

I tried those instructions, and here is my problem.

When I get to Step 11: In the telnet session, run "/sbin/unsling"

I enter /sbin/unsling disk2, and I get:

Checking if able to unsling...
Waiting for /share/flash/data ...
There is a number that counts down from 120 to 1 and then I get the message:
Error: /share/flash/data (disk2. /dev/sda1) is not a mounted disk

I also tried /sbin/unsling disk1 with the same result.

What am I missing?

I suggest to use "Unslung-5.5-beta" and to follow the instructions on

http://howtotwonky.pbwiki.com/Hard%20Dr ... stallation

Under normal circumstances it should work fine!

Don't have twonky, but making progress.

I reformatted the HDD which was NTFS, now it is EXT3. Unslung was successful. I then ran ipkg update and you can see there are some errors, especially host name lookup failure. I cannot ping nslu2-linux.org as well. ???

OK, now I am stuck with the following. On my Windows workstation Disk! has no sub folders. Help?

From your workstation connect to the default network share 'DISK 1' on your NSLU2. Go into the folder "public". You might know that this relates to the folder /share/hdd/data/public.
In "public" create a new folder called 'mp3'.
Put music in the new folder - let's start with just a few songs or albums. Watch out that all songs have proper Id3 tags: Title, Artist, Album, Year and Genre.
Run 'chmod o+r -R /share/hdd/data/public/mp3' to make sure the server has permissions to read your music files.
Run '/opt/etc/init.d/S60mt-daapd' to re-start the server.
Open your iTunes. In the Source panel (left hand side) between 'Music Store' and '90's Music' you should find a new blue entry titled mt-daapd. Click it and see if all your music is available. Click on the eye / 'Browse' button to select music by Genre, Artist and/or Album.

There are 2 ways to create the folder. I sense that your Linux experience is limited.
1. Telnet in the box as you have been doing and change directory to
cd /share/hdd/data/public 
then make directory
md mp3
and follow the rest of the instructions.
or
2. In Windows Explorer Map a network drive. Click the browse button and you should see the NAS disk 1 listed. You can then create the folder using Explorer

OK, so I went into the NSLU2 with telnet, did the cd /share/hdd/data followed by a mkdir mp3.

The folder now shows up in windows explorer but I cannot copy files into it. Getting Access is Denied in the mp3 folder. I can however, write to it from the NSLU2, eg I was able to create a sub folder in the mp3 folder.

Also ran 'chmod o+r -R /share/hdd/data/public/mp3' to make sure the server has permissions to read my music files.

Getting really close here... just need a bit of help to be able to copy my mp3s into the new folder!

Thanks.
