Has anyone installed this on their MyBook? The website is http://www.subsonic.org/
Noob here… interested in having Subsonic running on MBWE (White Light) at all times so that I can access my music library remotely from my iPod Touch. (If I had a desktop computer that was always running, I'd use that instead!)
I'm on Mac OS X. Really have no idea what I'm doing. Is there a way?
did you read any of the download/install instructions for the LINUX versions of this software? I just did a quick scan of the software and it seems that it requires Java to run. The MBWE processor is very small and i doubt it can run java.

OK, I'm trying to install subsonic, using the java implementation (I think it's phoneMe-advanced) found on MyBook (white light), i.e. cvm in /usr/mionet/bin/. Right now, here's the error message I got in subsonic_sh.log when trying to start Subsonic (standalone version):
at net.sourceforge.subsonic.booter.Main.<init>(Unknown Source)
at net.sourceforge.subsonic.booter.Main.main(Unknown Source)
at sun.misc.CVM.runMain(Unknown Source)
Anyone knows what should I do?
So you managed to get java installed? Looks like the version of java you're using isn't complete and doesn't know what the java.lang.StringBuilder class is…
You could try this… http://www.raymeskhoury.com/blog/java-on-mybook-world-edition/
It'd be very useful for me to run Subsonic on my MyBook WE so I'll try when I get the chance too.
Well, there's a Java version pre-installed on My Book (white light). It appears to be phoneme-advanced (see this for details: https://phoneme.dev.java.net/). You can use it with the /usr/mionet/bin/cvm binary. It can also be installed using optware.
And yes, you're probably right, it seems that this version is not complete enough to run Subsonic…
Did you try the method in the link I provided? I'm about to try it as well.
Turns out this is useless…
I guess that's just a java compiler, the javavm is still crappy. I'm Googling around for an ARM9 version of Java but not finding anything that looks too promising…
Yes, I've tried with Jikes and I agree, it's useless. I've also tried with Jamvm, from optware. Also useless (well, it gives error like cvm).
Now I guess that we have to find a low requirements ARM compatible Java 5 implementation/solution somewhere. I don't know if it's realistic but I'll continue to look around. I suppose that if we find something, we have to get our hands dirty, with some nasty compilation recipe!
In case it might help, here's a link with some suggestions :
OK, I've abadoned the idea of installing/running Subsonic, due to java constraints.
Good news is that there's a relatively easy way (no compilation or other vaudoo procedures needed) to install another similar product: Ampache
Lots of trial/error, but it works great (a bit slow maybe), essentially by installing required optware packages: lighttpd, mysql, php. php-mysql, php-iconv (and maybe one or two others I don't remember). Anyone interested just has to know how to use ssh, install optware packages, configure a website and then, follow installation instructions in Ampache documentation. Obviously, having enough time and patience is also required!
