Here are the steps needed to upgrade the SlimServer that comes with LinuxMCE (7.04) to a newer version of Squeezecenter.

Upgrade SlimServer

  • Download the version of squeezecenter you want to run to the core.
  • cd to /usr/pluto/servers
  • Backup the existing SlimServer directory.
mv SlimServer SlimServer.lmce
  • Move the downloaded file to /usr/pluto/servers and unarchive it.
  • Make a soft link to the new directory. This step just makes upgrades or downgrades go a little faster.
ln -s squeezecenter-some-version SlimServer  
  • Add a user slimserver and a group slimserver This is the default that Squeezecenter runs as
  • Change the ownership of squeezecenter's directory to that of slimserver.
chown -R slimserver:slimserver squeezecenter-some-version

At this point you should be able to restart the dcerouter. This should start the new version of squeezecenter

Configure Squeezecenter

Squeezecenter needs a little configuration before it will work with LMCE

  • In a web browser, goto http://dcerouter:9000 This should bring up the squeezecenter interface.
  • Click on settings in the lower right hand corner.
  • Select Plugins from the menu at the top
  • Select Command Line Interface (CLI)
  • Set the port to 7890
  • Click on Apply in the lower right hand corner
  • restart the dcerouter from either the admin site or the console
