      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Are requests for rpm's allowed here?

Recommended Posts

I am unsue if this is the right place to ask or if MDE even accepts rpm requests, but if so, I have noticed that Mandriva does not have any rpm's for mediatomb. personaly I own a ps3 and am highly intested in using my mandriva box to serve music and videos to my PlayStation3 . I doubt I am the only one that would be intrested in this particular package. I've enjoyed much succsess with mde and was hoping to get some help in this area. Thanks for any and all help

 

...if not...call me an idiot lol

This one looks like a straightforward build, I'll do it for Cooker and backport it to 2007 Spring.

Thanks Adamw

 

Good to see you here :)

Okay, I've just uploaded the latest mediatomb to Cooker contrib and 2007 Spring /contrib/backports (see http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Docs/Basic_tas...ndidate_updates for instructions on using the /backports repositories). It should hit the public mirrors soon. I tested that it installs correctly, runs, and I can browse to it via the HTTP interface. I couldn't test actual serving functionality as I don't have any UPNP clients.

 

Once it's installed you need to edit /etc/mediatomb.conf and tell it what your network interface is (usually eth0). After that you can start it with 'service mediatomb start' as root (or use drakxservices). The web interface is at http://localhost:50500 . Beyond that you're on your own, read the docs =) if you run into any trouble which appears to be caused by the packaging, let me know. Thanks!
