How to load *.conf ?

Postby Drewpy » Mon Jan 11, 2010 2:03 am

I'm wondering how I can load additional .conf files via command line ?

I've tried putting them in a 'renderers' folder, putting them in the root of the PS3 Media Server folder, but they still don't get loaded at startup.

You can't pass in a path to a configuration file. PMS only takes 4 command line options:

  • console
  • nativelook
  • scrollbars
  • noconsole

It looks for PMS.conf in the current directory and, if it doesn't exist, creates it there (if you save any settings).

You could place PMS.conf files in separate directories and then launch each profile via a script e.g.

Code: Select all


if [ -z "$1" ]; then
   PMS_DIR=`dirname $1`


Better still, raise an issue. The lack of command-line options inhibits packaging on Linux, where the Linux Standard Base requires binaries, configuration files, logfiles, &c. to be in standard places rather than all in one directory. If it wasn't for that, it would be quite easy to package.

If you're talking about adding a renderer .conf, they're not hardwired, so you should be able to add a new one to the renderers subdirectory.
