Use a normal ubuntu as Orbiter/MD
« on: April 27, 2007, 02:41:38 pm »
Hello,
I set up a core (non hybrid). I can access the admin pages and configure it. Now, I would like to set up an orbiter/md on a computer witch is runing ubuntu. I don't want to reboot it, only, sometimes, click an icon and obtain my "media center" on my running ubuntu. How can I do that ?

Thank you (and sorry for my bad english ;-) )

you can't do that. the only solution is to reboot the computer, enable network boot, and then to run the automatic setup.

ok. It could be a good feature. I'm working on my computer and want to hear one of my playlists stored in LinuxMCE...

Is there anothere way to do that ? Could I configure Amarok (or another player) to access the central music database ?

Thank you.

To that, you might want to look at Softsqueeze...
I have not tried it myself, but since LinuxMCE suppport Squeezebox, this might work great :)
