Developers / Re: squeezelite as an alternative to squeezeslave
« Last post by phenigma on July 18, 2014, 09:36:51 pm »
There is no technical reason why they could not co-exist.  A discussion was had in irc that essentially decided there is no reason to support multiple squeezeslave binaries.  One should be chosen to maintain.  I had asked for some specifics regarding the changeover.  We can build a package for squeezelite on precise, that's not really an issue (imho).

If the squeezeslave binaries are no longer under development then we should migrate to squeezelite.

I wanted to swap out my squeezeslave instances with squeezelite as the former is no longer actively developed and also cannot handle Spotify streams.
 - I found a git clone on the squeezelite site with additions to support building a deb package. Turns out Uplink did this work. How can this be used by Linuxmce?

There are two ways, we can either build the package in house, or host it in a PPA.  I would prefer to build it in house, for precise, and use an ubuntu repo for trusty (if that exists).  We would create the package definition and point it to the lmce repo for precise and the ubuntu repos for trusty, easy enough to do.  Can you point me to the package (URL)?

- To build this deb other packages are required - again not on precise, but available via another PPA, Can these be added with the package manager?

Likely, but we would do that manually for our builders if posde is okay with that, as well as add the proper dependencies and PPA repos to the database for proper installation of package dependencies.  Again, fairly easy.

- Can DTs be copied? or one based on another?

DTs cannot easily be copied.  I would create a new DT with the existing DT open in another window and do it that way.  This is how I regurlarily create new DTs that are similar to others.

I hope that helps, I am happy to do some of the integration work but I don't have a lot of time to test right now.  I'm around next week then off on vacation for 2 weeks.  Let me know if you have other questions!

I've done this by adjusting the script. But this isn't the right way to do it.
Squeezeslave could be replaced by squeezelite or I don't see a reason either why they couldn't co-exist - why did they need to be swapped? can you point me to the discussion in the forum?.

The existing template and script could be extended to run either binary - but that adds additional package dependencies that squeezeslave doesn't require.
Adding Squeezelite to trusty to coexist with squeezeslave, on the surface, looks manageable.
Adding it to precise is that bit harder with the packages not being available from linuxmce/kubuntu repos.

@phenigma - you did a lot of work with the packaging setup and addition of Raspi stuff - can you advise on my initial queries?

Thanks for your input. Perhaps I will just wait until 12.04 or 14.04 has become stable and will try it again then.

My D-link NAS is based on a condensed version of Debian, so it's linux to linux.

I was wondering if the 220 was maybe some kinda embedded Windows variant.

So I tried this.

I run two networks in the house - one for the family and their Windows machines and one for LMCE.

I reconfigured the network to include the family side ( just switching a BIX block RJ45 x-connect to the LMCE switching hub).

I powered up my wife's XP box.

No changes to existing smb.conf, her PC has Windows shares and is in the LINUXMCE workgroup.

Took 3-5 minutes but the PC hard drive was detected as a File Server.

On her PC My Network Places>Entire Network>Microsoft Windows Network>Linuxmce>Dcerouter was displayed.

I tried to log into dcerouter but couldn't connect but I don't really care @ this point because I just wanted to be seen form the LMCE side.

On 12.04 to talk to a WIN7 box in the smb.conf global section you need...

follow symlinks = yes


p.s.  If you are somewhere around the St. Lawrence valley area in Ontario, Canada a roadtrip would be possible - a cold, frosty milk would be nice ;)

Like I said,I don't know either. I can access the damned thing from Windows, only lmce doesn't care about it. Some of the other devices I unblocked showed up again, but not the nasbox. I would invite you over, so you could see it with your own eyes, but I guess that would be quite a stretch :-)

Just replace the squeezeslave script and adapt the template if required for your use case. Works fine. I suggested using squeezeslave and squeezelite next to eachother some time ago but it was insisted on swapping one for the other. I get so disapointed seeing effort being lost like this when the biggest problem is the amount of development power around lmce.

I saw this part of a review on CNET...

The server comes with a discovery software utility, making setting up the BlackArmor a simple task. Once set up, the utility assists in finding the NAS server on the network and allows you to map network drives to its two default share folders, "public" and "download." Fortunately, no software is needed to access the NAS, as it fully supports the SMB protocol and can be easily found using Windows Explorer.

Can you easily find the NAS via Windows Explorer?

Then can you easily find the NAS under that Windows "other networks or network neighbourhood" or under my computer whatever?

If you can see it as part of the network neighbourhood the I don't understand why LMCE couldn't see it.

There should not be any other parameters that would be needed in 10.04 global section. 

Unless, there is one different thing you might need for connecting to a Windows OS box.  All the other necessary fields are in the global section.

I can't remember off the top off my head...

I'll look through my notes.

There is nothing showing in the devicetree. Perhaps I should check in irc.
