    AlienBBC on Fedora

    Hi all,

    I've just got AlienBBC running on my Fedora Core 2 box and thought I'd share a
    couple of issues I ran into (and recommend that the AlienBBC documentation is
    updated).

    1. Open the firewall
    Open port 5123:tcp in Iptables. I use system-config-security-tui to customise
    the firewall ports - I'm sure there are many other ways to do this.
    (You will of course already have ports 3483:tcp, 3483:udp and 9000:tcp opened to
    allow connections to slimserver)

    2. Set the location of lame correctly
    On my Fedora installation, lame is installed in /usr/bin (rather than
    /usr/local/bin as specified by default in trancoder_proxy.pl.
    Set the location of the lame executable correctly in the $mp3_encoder variable
    (line 15 in v0.9).

    Now that I've done this it's working like a charm!

    Top job Jules!

    AlienBBC on Fedora

    Hi Robin.

    Bah. Annoying Built-in iptables firewall on modern RedHat builds. Is that
    actually necessary? I didn't know that the default firewall blocked ports on
    the loopback adapter .

    Ok. We'll update the docs for that. Given I don't run a server on FC2 (and,
    as it happens, always disable the built-in firewall configuration on
    RedHat - to my mind it falls between two fences - being comprehensive enough
    to get in the way, but not flexible enough to act as a genuine firewall
    configuration framework), would you mind writing up a set-by-step to change
    it, and I'll just reference that.

    As for the path to lame - I guess it'll have to go looking for it at some
    point. There doesn't look to be a well established standard for where it's
    supposed to live.

    The new version (not yet released), by the way, can be run without lame,
    providing you're using mplayer instead of alienstream. It's basically ready
    to release, I think... but it'll mean me rewriting the install
    instructions... and I'm not sure I have the fortitude for that
