remote execution fail


Ladies & Gents

Thanks for all the great help offered on this site.

I have a script that plays an online radio station. It contains one line
Code:
mpg123 http://216.118.106.247:7000
When run locally it work fine, but sometimes when run remotely it fails with

Code:
:~$ radio

I had thought it may be the result of executing it from a ssh/screen terminal but it also fails from just an ssh terminal. It works fine when executed locally.

Any idea what may be causing this?

Note that sometimes remote execution works just fine, so I suspect that it has something to do with running debian testing and packages not being updated to work together like in stable. So there may be nothing I can do about it. But I am curious.

I can see that a socket is not being created or accessed but I have no idea how to fix it. Or it if is something I should fix.

Thanks

Most likely it doesn't have access to an audio output.

There is nothing in ssh that would forward/emulate an audio device.

Run locally you have whatever local audio access is granted via a desktop login.

Thanks jpollard,

I don't suppose you have any pointers on where to look? When I get a chance I will look into user permissions. It is the same user locally as well as remotely.

It will depend on what other services are available for forwarding audio. It usually isn't all that secure. Sometimes it requires using ssh to forward network ports, but I have no information on which ones, or what services.

for example if you have a pulseaudio server you need to set PULSE_SERVER on the client (where mpg123 executed) and it will send the sound to that host. But it is only for pulseaudio.
In your case alsa tries to find an audio output and you need to configure it either to use pulse audio server or ???
