How do you install minidlna for debian squeeze


I wish to bridge my xbox with my computer but have no idea how. most explanations on net start off well then none of links work or files wrong.

Is there easy way, i have debian 6.0.4 just in case any one asks.

1: want to configure media server so my xbox becomes registered.

my eyes hurt.....falls sleep

The name br0 is totally up to you, this is just an example name that Ive chosen for the wiki article. Anyway, now that you have your bridge device, you have to add the interfaces that are gonna be bridged. You can cross-check the enumeration of your ethernet devices with (eth0, eth1, etc. is common):

# ip addr show
Add both the interface with the second computer, and the interface that leads to the existing network. Do it with this command:

# brctl addif br0 eth0 eth1

All i wanted to do was watch movies on my xbox while streaming from my computer, in theory seems easy but not everything is easy until you tried 99 timeswhilelast attempt is based on miracle.

I tried second link no help since that files wrong.

The first link above works but marginally, now i have no idea wh y in super user i cannot bridge both etho and bro.

I used brctl no luck. i'll go wait in my dog kennel til some one feeds me help.

wrong interface name

I'm not sure if you've resolved this or not, but from your output, it looks like you're telling it to use "etho" and not "eth0" (it's supposed to be a zero, not an "o").
