The info in http://dsmg600.info/howto:firefly contains too much steps for the CH3WNAS.
This is the 'real' way to setup firefly on CH3WNAS:
- enable telnet in fun_plug: http://www.aroundmyroom.com/2008/01/03/ch3wnas-enabling-telnet/
- download the latest build of FireFly for the CH3WNAS: http://willie-wortel.nl/ch3wnas/ch3wnas-ff-1696.tgz. Unzip the build onto the NAS. (/mnt/HD_a2)
- I renamed the main directory from /mnt/HD_a2/firefly-1696 to /mnt/HD_a2/firefly. This is consequent with the config.
- edit the following line in /mnt/HD_a2/firefly/mtdaapd.conf file (e.g. with ftp):
mp3_dir = /mnt/HD_a2/media
--> replace media with the root-directory to your mp3s.
--> check out the other options like default admin password if you wish.
- add the following lines to your fun_plug:
#kill legacy upnp (if you don't use the upnp ;-)
kill -9 `pidof upnp`
rm -f /mnt/HD_a2/firefly/var/cache/mt-daapd/*
/mnt/HD_a2/firefly/sbin/mt-daapd -c /mnt/HD_a2/firefly/mt-daapd.conf
As you can see, I completely remove the DB before starting FireFly up. This is because while I was testing, the DB went corrupt after a reboot. The indexing at startup is very fast (4000 mp3s in 64 seconds) so this isn't really a problem, I think. Maybe there are more elegant ways to prevent corruption of the DB?
- check out the FireFly admin pages in your browser: go to port 3689 of your CH3WNAS:
e.g. http://192.168.1.30:3689/ user: admin; password: mt-daapd (default)
- you can follow the logs in /var/log/mt-daapd.log (maybe not the best location :-/):
tail -f /var/log/mt-daapd.log
