    Itunes and SlimServer

    Hi,

    I've never used the SlimServer iTunes integration, but I'd like to start
    doing so. I have SlimServer running on a 250gb LinkStation, and I run iTunes
    on my Powerbook; do I need to store my iTunes library information on the
    server, or do I need to use some intermediary software solution?

    Cheers,

    bub.

    Itunes and SlimServer

    Good question - I actually tried exactly the same but no success so far. My
    Linkstation is working fine with slimserver itself but I am missing
    the playlist features I had with Itunes. It's actually not enough to simply
    place the Itunes database on the linkstation - that's how much I found out
    so far...

    Anyone else any ideas?

    Cheers,
    Manuel

    You can use mt-daapd to make your linkstation an iTunes server.

    I'm not sure where you would find binaries for the linkstation, but http://mt-daapd.org would be a good place to start!

    let us know what you find, this is something I will be interested in doing once I make the plunge and get myself a linkstation.

    For mt-daapd on the LinkStation:

    Download http://linkstationwiki.org/downloads...-0.2.1.1-1.tgz

    Unpack the archive to your LinkStation filesystem root. Then run the
    installation script:

    ../install.sh
