CH3SNAS with Squeezecenter / Squeezebox howto

Some persons asked me if it is possible to have SqueezeCenter running at the CH3SNAS

After long time writing: nope, it’s not possible we finally have a howto how the CH3SNAS can work easily (kuch)¬†with SqueezeCenter 7.2

The correct installation you can find here, please notice the 4.2.3 section where the DBD::MYSQL package needs to be installed, you have to use the alternative compile option. the normal Perl Makefile.PL rule is not compiling on the CH3SNAS, you need the longer rule with alternative references to the libraries (libs).

When you follow this walktrough completely you have a working SqueezeCenter software server running at your CH3SNAS. A big thanks to Yannick for his great howto

note: you need to create a squeezecenter user on the CH3SNAS otherwise you cannot chown certain files.

    Nice, but did anyone try it yet? How is the performance?
    I quess that because of all the swapping the discs will not spindown anymore. Is it possible to install this on usb stick like the ffp? And then make a swapfile on the usb as well? Which shortens the life of your usb stcik a lot probably

    I tried it, otherwise I would not write about it ;-)

    perferformance is on web-interface part: slow

    but when you have indexed your files and you use it through the squeezebox, than it’s just working fine .. so if you do not use the HTML interface much, no problems

    note: I took 1 empty CH3SNAS and only used funplug 0.5 with the packages and no other content and other purposes
