Thanks. 1.44 does support telnet, and I have been
able to get root access.

It looks like I'd need a newer Perl, and I haven't
been able to find a link to a binary or easy
instructions for compiling it in that environment.

I'm also faced with a dilemma: My squeezebox is
wired, I'm partial to iTunes, and a bit of an audio
snob. I could rip to wav files for slimserver on the
linkstation, but my kids access the library using
802.11b wireless nics on their PCs, and bandwidth
would become an issue if iTunes tried to grab the
uncompressed files.

Would FAAD2 work adequately on high-bitrate aac on
this CPU? Is Apple Lossless an option? Or must I
maintain 2 libraries in parallel?

Charlie

I have a feeling I'm pretty dense because I can't figure out how to
compile FAAD2 on the Linkstation. If anyone has managed to do it,
please throw a hint my way. Otherwise I'll be re-ripping to mp3. 12
gigs shouldn't take too long.
