NAS on Bootup
Once NAS is installed by packages, will it start on bootup?

EDIT: Also, why doesn't the configure script of Qt detect that I have NAS installed?

Try to read the docs on how to properly start it and add
the command in /etc/rc.d/rc.local

Do no hesitate to post here your impressions if
the Network Audio System sounds really good ;)

I can't find anything in the README or FAQ about the startup.

Start it with

nasd -aa & # -aa allows any host access
Then set an environment variable for your user :
export AUDIOSERVER="`hostname`:0"

Exporting a variable keeps it even after reboot, right?

keefaz 05-23-2005 07:44 PM

no, a variable is a reference to a memory storage, the memory is cleared
when the computer shutdown or reboot

To keep the variable I would do something like :

echo -e "export AUDIOSERVER=\"`hostname`:0\"" > /etc/profile.d/
chmod +x  /etc/profile.d/

Okay, I'm still a little confused. Where would I do all of this; in the console or in the rc.local file?

keefaz 05-23-2005 08:11 PM

in the console, I use commands echo and chmod from the console

for rc.local, you can add a line like this from the console :

echo "nasd -aa & # -aa allows any host access" >> /etc/rc.d/rc.local
