iTunes server on Linux

Via daapd, you can set up a linux server to feed to iTunes. There is a list of packages you need that might need manual compilation:

  • SDL 1.2.8
  • FAAC 1.24
  • lame 3.96.1
  • libid3tag 0.15.1b
  • libmad 0.15.1b
  • mpeg4ip
  • howl 0.9.10
  • Apple’s mDNSResponder-58.8
  • daapd 0.2.4a

  • There are a couple quirky pieces but should be fairly straight forward for anyone that has dabbled in linux compilation. Just follow the instructions and listen to great music from a stable server instead of wasting harddrive space on your local system!
