Ok.
- First I had to enable a telnet session for the hifidelio box.
This is described in the hifidelio user forum.
Short form : Take update iso-image, change rc.local script to copy telnet
session.
If somebody is interested I can send him the modified iso-image

- Now copy the Slimserver perl source to the Hifidelio import folder. (samba
share on Hifidelio)
You can get access to this folder with normal smb-client (Windows, MAC,
Linux)

- with telnet I created a new directory (/usr/local/slimserver/)
- with telnet I copied slim source to this directory and extracted it with
gzip and tar
- now I could start the server with the command perl
/usr/local/slimserver/slimserver.pl --daemon
- at then end I edited the rc.local script and added the (perl
/usr/local/slimserver/slimserver.pl --daemon) command to the script for
running slimserver on startup.

Now you can connect with the Squeezebox wireless interface to the Hifidelio.
No accesspoint is needed. I think it's a very simple multiroom system and
much more powerful
if you compare it e.g. to the Yamaha system. And much cheaper as well.

Beat

The poster referred to a modified ISO image - I thought I needed that. I will try the regular Linux download first.

I have downloaded the SlimServer software but it needs compiling and I don't have make or the gcc compiler on my Hifidelio - could someone please send me the pre-compiled SlimServer for the Hifidelio platform?

Thanks,

- Simon.

Slimserver is perl code and doesnt need compiling.

The windows EXE install is compiled and does require rebuilding if you
want to incorporate changes.

Any other install, simply needs a perl interpreter (not gcc) installed
on the system.

No the perl script complains about the XML:Parser not being compiled - when you run the suggested perl script to compile it, it complains because you need make and gcc installed. So part of what runs is actually compiled on the platform.
