Hello – I am posting here for the first time. I have been watching your project with interest, and thank you very much. My priority is to have a squeezebox server which is low power consumption and easy to maintain.
I think you're doing excellent work. It is especially important because of the recent news that Logitech are stopping support for squeezebox products and software (eventually). This is very sad, and means it is important that we can have a stable squeezebox media server system so that our players can work in the future when other operating systems have changed and the LMS server software is not kept up to date.
I am running a Raspberry Pi with Ethernet. With some difficulty I managed to get one of your version 4.xx up and running. I have a USB flash memory stick inserted directly into the Pi. It is formatted with Fat 32, and has some music albums in the root directory and some others in a folder called "Music".
Now I have installed your version 5.00, and upgraded to 5.02. If I follow the instructions in the menu after Setup, then I am following Media_Handling and then Media_Library (Configure the Media Library). This seems to be different from under the 4.xx. I am not sure what it means to "create an empty library for all the data you like to access from your Squeezeplug device".
If I follow the "Yes" to configure the media library, it tells me it has been successfully configured (using option 4 USB (external USB HD or SATA on GoFlex Net). Then I am told that the Medial Library was successfully configured and mounted and can be found on /mnt/internal/.
I am not sure what this means. Does it mean that it found my USB flash drive?
I can check my USB flash memory stick back in my PC and the music is still there.
I can find LMS up and running as you suggest on HTTP://squeezeplug
: 9000. Under the settings for LMS I can set the Media Folders to /mnt/internal. But it does not find any music.
I am not sure how I'm supposed to find the music on my USB flash memory stick. Is it possible to give some explanation of what is happening here?
Many thanks – Simon
