Mini-Slim This is an alternative to squeezecenter, previously known as slimserver. It is a fairly minimal server for slim devices (now logitech) products. I wrote it because I wanted my squeezebox2 to run from a small embedded device and was tired of squeezecenter trying to take up half a gig of RAM for no good reason. I don't intend to match squeezecenter's featureset, I'm just happy if I have a working player at 1% of the size. REQUIREMENTS To use this application, you will need a modern version of perl, and the CPAN modules mentioned in Build.PL. You will also need direct filesystem access to the music files you intend to play. You will also a webserver running on port 80 on the same machine, which is configured to serve the same music files. (Unlike squeezecenter, this application does not have a web server built in, but the player can stream music just fine from apache or lighttpd.) INSTALLATION To install this application, run the following commands: perl Build.PL ./Build ./Build test ./Build install CONFIGURATION The server reads configuration from /etc/mini-slim.conf and $HOME/.mini-slim. At a bare minimum, you will need to tell it how to get to your music, both via the local filesystem and via the webserver. If your music was at /media/music/ in your local filesystem, and you could get to the same place in a web browser with "http://localhost/music/", you would use the following settings: musicdir: /media/music httpdir: /music SUPPORT AND DOCUMENTATION After installing, you can find documentation for this module with the perldoc command. perldoc Mini::Slim You might find additional information at: Github, the source repository http://github.com/Infinoid/Mini-Slim RT, CPAN's request tracker http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/Bugs.html?Dist=Mini-Slim ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Mad props to slim devices for making nifty hardware. Also, props to whoever wrote this: http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.php/SlimProtoTCPProtocol It isn't always accurate, but it's a whole lot better than nothing.
