PostPosted: Wed 03 Dec 2008, 12:06    Post subject:  m_serv 0.1a - 39 MB Puppy-based server
Subject description: Commandline audio streaming
 

From longinfo
m_serv is a remaster of Puppylinux 4.10 made by Barry Kauler (www.puppylinux.com). Base work was done with Puppy unleashed 4.10 (www.puppylinux.com/development/puppy-unleashed.htm) using the 2.6.21.7 kernel.

m_servs main-goal is to serve music to an upnp-music-client (internet-radio) or an mpd-client-app running on (the same or) another computer.

m_serv is very basic. as serving music does not require bling, there is no. So there is are no X and no X-related-wizards. You will have to configure everything from commandline.

The iso-size is ~39 mb at the moment. This is ok for me, as the result is a 'relatively normal' (Puppy-)Linux. But maybe i will squeeze it a little more.

m_serv is made by me aragon (http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=8192). It does only reflect my personal needs and i did not plan to extend it (yet).

If you find bugs, or have ideas how to improve or slim it down, your proposals are very welcome.

Why m_serv
Short:
I was looking for a slight solution to stream my local music to my Terratec internet-radio. As i'm a puppy addict ...

Long:
As i do have more than one computer, a home network, an internet radio plugged to my hifi and a lot of mp3-files, i wanted to listen to my mp3-files with my hifi. So i need to serve my music to my internet-radio.

Because this could be done with 'ancient' hardware and without any bling, i decided to build a basic puppy.

I've also included some more (base) audio-apps, so usage-spectrum is a little wider.

So what do we have now?
We have an puppy without X with

* fuppes as upnp-server
* mpd as another music-server
* elinks as browser
* nano as editor
* MusicOnConsole as music-player
* ncmpc as local mpd-client
* mc as filemanager
* screen as terminal-multiplexer
* shell-fm as last-fm-player
* djmount as upnp-stream-mounter
* ...

So you might use m_serv as a music-server or a (basic) musicplayer/jukebox.

If you want to use m_serv to stream your music to another computer within your network, you might use mpd (to use with an mpd-client) or fuppes + djmount (on the second computer) which picks up the stream from fuppes. For your convenience, i included a pet of djmount in the iso (dir /additions) to use on the second computer.

Version
The actual version is 0.1a, the first official alpha. So please be patient and report bugs to the forum thread.

first. This will open an info-file.

Cheers
aragon

Very interesting. I have been using gnump3 to stream but have been playing with icecast/mpd/ncmpc. I cannot seem to get the bugs worked out of the trio working together.

I have a dedicated box for my music and I will give this one a look.

hi trapster,

i've been using gnump3d too. it's nice, as it has it's own server. only problem is/was, that i can't figure out, which perl-modules it needs exactly. build in does not work, with devx it works but then it's large.

if you have running gnump3d without devx, i would be very interested.

cheers
aragon

I do download and compile stuff remotely on that box so I do have devx installed on it. I never have tried gnump3 without it.

ok, that leads directly to a second question:

if i want to administer my box from another one, which remote(-server) soluting would you recommend for doing this with m_serv?

thanks in advance
aragon

I use x11vnc server and tightvnc client to access the box. But then again, it is running x.
I have not delved into a console access method, yet.

A thought for this.
I think Paudioscripts is a must have.
Can be found Here
It will convert just about anything to anything. I use it to convert .wav to .ogg and or .mp3.
A very handy command line tool for music.

If all your doing is a server, why use 4 series as a base??? The kernel is larger etc,
hmmmm puppy 2.02 Opera was 51mb http://puppylinux.ca/puppyfiles/vintage/2.02-Opera/
If you ditch all the gtk apps, it would be smaller than this, even if you left in rox/vesa and gtk1. now if you were to strip that one I bet it would be around 29-32mb.
onebone came with elinks browser and it was 28MB http://puppylinux.ca/puppyfiles/vintage/onebone/puppy-onebone-2.01/
elinks can be found at http://elinks.or.cz/
