FireFly on Qnap ?

Tue Mar 27, 2007 3:36 am

Hello,

I'm actually not quite satisfied with the TwonkyVision on Qnap. For now the only alternative I know is the SlimServer which I don't like, too.

Are there any plans to bring the FireFly on the Qnap TS-101 ?

Not active plans, and I haven't heard from anyone starting a port.

Is there an optware firmware yet?

Yes, there is the "Open Turbostation" in an early stage :
http://scratchpad.wikia.com/wiki/Open_Turbostation:Software

And the original firmware in a GPL package :
http://www.qnap.com.tw/download_detail.asp?pl=1&p_mn=TS-101&ct_name=Technical%20Document

The GPL package has some limitations explaned on the first link.

UPs, I'm coming from Windows, so I don't realy have a clue of all these distributions right now... :?

There is a link to a OptWare distribution running on the Qnap TS-101 in an early stage (unstable) :
http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/Optware/Platforms

I hope this one was the distribution you asked for ?

Yes... if there is an optware distro (like that one, or any other one that will run ipks from unslung), then I can build nightlies for it. Just a matter of locating all the right build tools. But its easy once I find all those, and I'd be happy to if you could find instructions for setting up a cross platform for it.

I'm guessing someone will port it pretty soon -- seems like it gets ported fairly quickly, as I think running a music server on NAS is something that a lot of people apparently *get* a nas box for. :)

When someone posts a port of it, they will usually post a description of what development tools they had to download and how they had to configure them to be able to compile it. That's the info I need.

As I don't hang around on the Qnap forums or mailing lists much, I wouldn't run across that kind of info. But if you see someone talking about it and can give me a link to the description of how people had to get their development tools installed, then I can probably make it work

Thank you very much. You're a great help !!!
In fact I bought the NAS for the mudic server functionalities either (because it is consuming much less energy and it's (at least the Qnap) noiseless. You know the advantages....)

I'm trying to stay updated and I'll post you what you need as soon I find any info about that.

Again, thankx a lot.

The is a optware distro for the Qnap

Wed Apr 11, 2007 7:49 am

You were right. It has been ported by "Øyvind Repvik".
You can find the link to the image image on :
http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/OpenTurbostation/message/251
And the description for the port on :
http://www.lockstockmods.net/readarticle.php?article_id=26.

Is it this what you asked for ?

I used this port to install mt-daapd and it works... at least in the last stable version (which is 0.2.4.2 I think). I tried everything (after reading x hours diverses articles about installing the mt-daapd) but I never
succeeded to install the nighly build.

Do you have an idea what's not working ? Does I need a build for the Qnap before I can use the nighly builds ?

yeah, it looks like the same processor and build tools as the synology. I'll set up a build tree for that and see how it owrks.

I have a package up for the ds101. It's at http://nightlies.mt-daapd.org. That's a ppc 603e, and I think should work on your platform.

Has anyone sucessfully installed Firefly on the TS-101 yet? I fear it's a bit beyond my ability, but if someone has suceeded and could share an idiot's guide on how to get it working I'd be grateful!

Well, I thought I'd have a go. I've got optware running on my TS-101 and here's what i've done:

1. Installed the DS101 (mt-daapd_svn-1696-1ds101g_powerpc.ipk) package as suggested by Ron above. It installed fine with all dependant packages. I then edited mt-daapd.conf and changed only the following line

mp3_dir = /share/HDA_DATA/Qmultimedia/mp3


Then I tried to launch Firefly with:

/opt/etc/init.d/S60mt-daapd


but I get the following error:

/opt/etc/init.d/S60mt-daapd: 13: /opt/sbin/mt-daapd: not found


the file IS there, so I'm really not sure what to try next. I'm no guru at these things, so any suggestions would be welcome.

The "/opt/sbin/mt-daapd: not found" message is a little misleading; it found mt-daapd, but it did not find needed libraries.

Here is the output of ldd on my TS-101 after installing mt-daapd_svn-1696-1ds101g_powerpc.ipk -- the "not found" entries are for glibc libs, while we only have uclibc.
