Would Tiny Core run Logitech Media Server
« on: July 30, 2020, 01:09:39 PM »
Hello to all on Forum.
I have Tiny Core-Current iso on USB on a Wyse Thin Client, 1GB ram, 1GHZ, Via CPU.
It's brilliant and I wondered if it could run Logitech Media Server to make a music server.
Has anyone tried this or has any advise.
Thanks.

Thanks for that Rich
All replies had a lot of code. What I need to know before I go any further is what language is the code as I will need to learn to us this.
It may be too complicated for me, a beginner, but I will try..
I do run pCorePlayer for the Pi but that's easy, its ready formed but I need similar for x86 PC and not Daphile as it is not open source.
Thanks again.

You could also use the rygel extension.

That looks interesting, I will look into that. That will take some time.

It's a media streamer - I've used it on an RPi3 to stream music/videos for a number of years.

juanito,
I may have to admit that this is too complicated for me. my understanding of code is very limited.
My wish was to make a piCorePlayer for x86 using Tiny Core Linux but I am out of my depth.
So its back to Daphile and closed source software,
I will try to learn about code, any advise?

There’s no coding required and the rygel info file explains what to do.

Do you mean how do you install tinycore to a usb stick or how do you stream media from a usb stick?

Hi diode84
Is this what you are looking to paste into a terminal:
Code: [Select]
                $ xdg-user-dirs-update
                $ sudo /usr/local/etc/init.d/dbus start
                $ /usr/local/lib/tracker-2.0/tracker-extract &
                $ /usr/local/lib/tracker-2.0/tracker-miner-fs &
                $ gdbus call -e -d org.freedesktop.DBus -o /org/freedesktop/DBus -m org.freedesktop.DBus.StartServiceByName org.freedesktop.Tracker1 0
                $ rygel & [to stream av files]

Open the file in an editor. Highlight a line (without the $ sign) using the left mouse button. Then center click in a terminal and hit Enter.

Yes I have that saved to a usb key but cant find how to read the usb in Tiny Core. It installs it as sdc1. What can I read it with.

Hi diode84
Click on the  MountTool  icon and mount  sdc1  or  enter this:
Code: [Select]
mount /mnt/sdc1
Then click on the  Editor  icon (looks like a fountain pen with blue handle)  or  right click the desktop and  SystemTools->Editor.
Then in the editor  File->Open File...  and navigate to  /mnt/sdc1/  and find the file you saved.
