I have to preface this by saying I am in no way a Linux expert, so there may be an easier way to do this.
Assuming you followed the steps here
, the next thing is to install Python v2.6. I couldn't find a python26 package for the 'pacman' installer, so I started searching. I found a package that could be installed with the 'ipkg' installer, but then I had to install that. Follow this guide
for installing ipkg. I think I also used the same guide to install samba, if you're interested. Once that's installed, I installed the Python Imaging Library which will also install Python: /opt/bin/ipkg install py26-pil
Once Python is installed, it's a simple matter of copying the MyMedia server code, editing config.ini, and starting the server. I haven't put it in any of the startup scripts, partially because I haven't turned off my Dockstar since I got it working and partially because I'm not sure where exactly to put it. Maybe one of you Linux wizards can advise. For now, I just start the server with: python rss_server.py > /dev/null 2>&1 &
I'm not sure if the Dockstar really has enough horsepower to run the imaging library, so you could just skip that and install python26. I haven't done too much experimenting with pictures, but I would like to compare with and without the imaging library.
I'm hoping I haven't left anything out. It took me a couple of days to get everything on my Dockstar right, but that had a lot to do with it not liking any of my SD Flash and/or the USB reader. I also never got the Dockstar to boot off of a hard drive, but I didn't look into the issue too much. I think it has to do with the boot code not giving the hard drive enough time to spin up.
Good luck! Let me know how it goes.
