General setup and configuration?

Postby dsuchter » Mon Feb 02, 2009 10:00 am

I've combed the site and these forums, and I can't find the most simple thing: information on how to do basic setup. I happen to be running on Linux, but I'm looking for the general answer of "how to setup this software" since I plan on running it on all three platforms in the long run. I'm assuming there's an interface something like MediaTomb, where you connect to the PMS server computer through a web browser using HTTP on a magic port...?

Maybe I just missed a Wiki page somewhere that already answers this question?

I ask because the software seems to run fine on my linux host and the PS3 can see it for a second if I force it to scan, but the PS3 flashes some numerical error and a message about being unable to connect to the media server.

Here's the trace from my startup, which seems to look fine. With that said, I haven't told the server where on my filesystem to find media, so I'm not sure how I could expect it to work...?

this application is GUI based (it should pop up when starting the soft), so no easy way to configure it without a graphics environment
