I run a program called Squeezecenter (once known as Slimserver/slimdevice). I pipe music via the network to the rest of the studio and the house attached. I recently did an upgrade to a "lenny hybrid" system of 64studio. So I went to "update" my slim device and it wants to "remove Linux Kernel Headers". Are the Kernel headers in 64studio there because of the realtime kernel premptions for jack, ardour etc? or can I remove these so I can complete this update? I say NO because headers are programs specific, correct? Has anyone stumbled on this...I haven't yet. (til now) Thanks MiCK

Nice

**This is for anyone who uses a media stream server to play music across a Roku Soundbridge** Linux users can use FIREFLY. Firefly enables you to scan your library, play playlist and plays mutliple files formats. Using a Web Based Admin Page, Firefly lets you scan you library (including mutliple drives and links) set playlist and adjust config of connection. It allows one to "config" mt-daapd and let the Roku Soundbridge stream your media library across your network...and through your home/work stereo/PA system!! Cheers MiCK

Found a program called Jinzora. http://en.jinzora.com I have to compile it first but it is the same as slimserver..hopefully there is no header issues with it. It claims to control and stream to a squeezbox/roku. According to their web site your can actually login in to your server and listen to tunes remotely...seems like a security thing to me...wouldn't try it but it sound interesting none-the-less.

reinstalled

A short while back i had reloaded my system after a synaptics nightmare, so I hadn't got to loading the addition components like Squeezecenter, Nero etc... so no there no service to it right now. The device itself is fine and playing music via the internet but without the software loaded on my PC, I can't "see" the drives for other music... Not a huge deal. The above scenerio is thru apt-get/ terminal. Synaptics does something different all together... anyrate I'll find a work around for now. Cheers MiCK

I'd keep the headers...

The headers are kernel specific, and if you remove them you wont be able to compile stuff against your kernel. (if I am not mistaken...) Is the device working without an upgrade?
