View Full Version : Squeezebox server upgrades on Unix or please give us a static link to download

Ok I can deal with the fact that you no longer support an Apt repository. However what I cannot deal with is that there is no direct link to download a file. I do not use an X windows system on my unix box I actually use ssh to manage my box and I use wget to get the new squeezebox server package. Since you do not provide download links and I have too enumerate the friggin download location it frustrating. Please provide download locations or every update I have to do three things

1. Download package to a location I can wget it
2. Wget said package
3. Curse you repeatedly

A static link to the latest build or version would be nice, but http://downloads.slimdevices.com/nightly/ works perfectly fine in browsers such as lynx, links and such. Unless you are doing (scripted) automatic downloads/updates or other advanced things, this should solve your issues.

According to this thread (http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=79972), the repo at debian-origin.slimdevices.com is working. Alternatively one could write a simple script to automate getting the appropriate deb file from downloads.slimdevices.com/nightly/ -- I can dig one up if needed.

The Debian repository is working fine, there is also a regular download link if you'd prefer that.
