Changing Music Share Directory for Amahitunes?

Postby fiedlerd » Sat Dec 20, 2008 10:28 am

I want Amahitunes to share music from a second hard drive and haven't been successful in getting it to recognize any share or directory changes. I've tried changing the default directory location of the default HDA music share and I've tried creating a new share called "Music Library" and checking the music tag for that share. No matter what I do, Amahitunes continues to say music is located at \\hda\music and doesn't show my music. The reason I'm trying to do this is my hard drive with amahi loaded is only 6 GB, so I'm trying to set up a much larger storage drive. My second drive is a firewire drive that automatically mounts in Fedora to /media/WEDBAKUP/.

Another issue I had that may be related was the wiki article describing how to mount a second hard drive to my HDA didn't work for me because I could not find the diskmounter script.

Thanks for any help in advance.

OK, i updated the script link by keeping it local to the wiki link on adding a second drive.


The GUI for Amahitunes does not support editing this location.

You can access the streaming server directly at http://hda:3689 and change the configuration from there (under MP3 Dir).

Alternatively, for the command line geeks, the config file for the Firefly media server, which is what is doing the actual streaming in Amahitunes, is in

Code: Select all

/etc/mt-daapd.conf
Changing the

Code: Select all

mp3_dir
variable from /var/hda/files/music (which is the default) to where your music is (/media/WEDBAKUP) should achieve what you want.
My HDA: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz on MSI board, 8GB RAM, 1TBx2+3TBx1

Thanks for the help, editing the mt-daapd.conf file worked great and resolved my problem. Thanks also for moving the script file, that worked too.
