Hello everyone,

I recently setup SC7 on a LinkStation running FreeLink/Debian via a nightly .deb release. The install works fine, but as someone who won't leave well enough alone, I decided to switch to a svn-based installation and I had no problem building and installing a local package.

Now, as an experienced programmer (with next-to-nil debian knowledge), I'm going to want to tinker with the source a bit, but the package creation/installation cycle is rather slow. Is there a more direct workflow for working with the code in a more live manner?

Thanks,

You don't need to build the packages. Just run slimserver.pl out of the checkout folder with appropriate startup parameters.
