I-Tunes server part 1

In this post I will write about setting up a daap-server . With this server you`ll be able to stream your music collection to I-tunes and some other music-programs. There are different projects working with the DAAP (digital audio access protocol). Check here for an overview of the projects.

On my ubuntu-server I am going to work with the mt-daapd software. You can find the homepage of this project here.

basically I just started with following the steps out of the quick-start Ubuntu guide. The first step in the guide is: install non-standard packages. the following packages need to be installed
libsqlite0
libsqlite0-dev
gawk
gcc
libid3tag0-dev
libgdbm-dev
So type
sudo apt-get install libsqlite0
And do this for every package. Now you should be ready to install the server.
I will explain how I did this in the next post...
