The new SqueezePlug image will be based on Rasbian. It will have a lot of improvements and the scripts and it's complete structure will be renewed therefore there will be a version jump from 4.08 to 5.0. There will also be a lot of new features included. Everything is running very smooth in developing and most of the things already work. But I like to make this version a litle bit more perfect as all other versions of SqueezePlug before! And things have to run on all 4 different hardware platforms. So it takes some time! On the other hand I'm a bit busy in my job the next weeks and it's Holliday time! So you will have to wait I think four to six weeks from now on for the new release. But I guaranty, it's worth waiting!ddg wrote:Thomas,
How's the Raspbian image coming along? I have been very impressed with the XBMC distos based on Raspbian. There is supposedly improvements to the Alsa driver in the 3.2.21 kernel used for Xbian. With that said, excellent work and I am eager to see the next release.

Yes, it's possible! You can host the files where ever you like. Local SD card, attached USB device, Samba or NFS are fine. In LMS you have an iTunes plugin, you can use if you like!nekomatic wrote:Newbie question - apologies if this should be obvious, but I'm new to the whole media server / Squeezebox topic.
If I have my iTunes library (in Apple Lossless format) on a network share, and set up a Raspberry Pi on the network running this Squeezeplug server, will that be able to access the music and playlists and make them available to one or more Logitech Squeezebox Touches on the same network?
Great, thanks!truehl wrote:Yes, it's possible! You can host the files where ever you like.
So I don't have to use it? Can someone tell me, or give me a link to, what the iTunes plugin is or does please? I've done quite a lot of searching and can't find out...In LMS you have an iTunes plugin, you can use if you like!

Also, while doing that searching I've seen that the Squeezebox Touch doesn't actually play Apple Lossless directly but requires the server to transcode it to FLAC. Will the Raspberry Pi have enough horsepower to do that?
First of all we have to know how you connect your NAS? Do you use Samba or NFS? I think it's Samba, but who knows!tbdromore wrote:Hi,
Quite new to this and am having problems getting my squeezeplug pi connecting to my linkstation nas, where my music is stored.
The linkstation is located at 192.168.0.200 and the music is on a \shared folder off this.
The option to configure the media library doesn't work - can't see the media on the lms web interface.
Is there any way to manually configure the pi to connect to my nas?
any help appreciated.
You will need to run the command with "sudo" -allactionrob wrote:@drmarkb: No, I hadn't been using -R, and I will certainly try it, but I don't think it will help. LMS can't even see the top level folder, let alone subfolders. And chmod fails with a 'permission denied' error which I think means that root doesn't have the user/group rights to make the change.
Curiously, when I use miniDLNA instead of LMS everything is fine and the folder is visible. But then I guess the miniDLNA process is started by a different user (who clearly has read permission), though I haven't checked...
