uShare

I was messing around with the NSLU2 again last night. With a bit of Google searching, I was able to find the list of files to load to enable compiling on the NSLU2. After that, I experimented with getting a uPNP Media Server built (so's I can watch various podcasts/vidcasts in the living room via a DLink media converter).

MediaTomb failed early, complaining that the environment couldn't compile C++ programs.

uShare did compile with a bit of tweaking. I've put my notes here. I can now watch my ShmooCon vids in the living room, on a decent-sized screen.

If you use my notes to build your own, please let me know. If you figure out how to add capabilities, also please let me know.
