I'm trying to install genpuid on my debian server (running MIP headless) but the instructions in the wiki skip a few steps.

I downloaded the genpuid 1.4, unzipped it in a directory. From within this directory i run:
genpuid [my-key] -r -logex -m3lib=cache.m3lib -archive /music

But as a return i get: -bash: genpuid: command not found

This is probably due to my limited linux knowledge but could someone help me getting further?

You need to tell bash (the shell) where genpuid is, since it's not
in your path.

To do this, use "./" - this tells the shell that the program is in
the same directory that you are in.

So from within the genpuid directory, you'd run this command:
../genpuid [my-key] -r -logex -m3lib=cache.m3lib -archive /music

Well, that was easy enough, should have probably find it out by myself. It is running now, thanks.
