The reasons for rejecting Samba and NFS were mainly around how much time and effort I am willing to invest in getting something working. There's a router doing NAT between the two boxes (don't ask), and I've not managed to get an NFS mount to happen through this connection.

I've had lots of success using Samba from my server, when using it with my WinXP laptop. That's been the primary way of playing music so far. Using smbclient, I've been able to get FTP style access to copy individual files, but I wasn't aware that you could mount external smb volumes on a Linux system. If this is possible, please let me know how to do it, and what the fstab entry looks like.

I'll look into Firefly, that sounds cool.

I know I could make my app do more than pick 10 random tracks - this is just a start.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
