Hello!

Just installed the Squeezebox 2 with a Fedora Core 3 machine, and the internet radio works fantastic.

However, SlimServer can't find the files. For one, it won't recoginze valid paths. For example, it recognizes /home/ekubec , but nothing lower than that. I have tried changing permission on the files lower than /home/ekubec, but to no avail. I created a /home/music folder that is allows to be valid. But even after I filled it up with MP3s, it says the folder is empty.

Here is output from log:

2005-04-09 00:28:07.1477 Got /home/music from file url file:///home/music
2005-04-09 00:28:07.1486 extracted: /home/music from file:///home/music

the ekubec folder's permissions aren't allowing you to go lower to the
one that has permissions. If you symlink /home/ekubec to /home/music
you'd probably be able to view them...
