I have just tried out ps3media server its great ( on windows ) however i don't wish to virtualize a windows machine and i want to run it linux server one question if you are running from command line how do you modify the settings like you do in windows?
As stated in this post the config file is generated on first boot it does not appear to be viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1763
Also when trying to play something ( one of the tv channels via the ps3 i get the following )
/var/tmp/javaps3media does exist and is writable as i am currently running as root for testing purposes to make things easier
