Update on shell-fm

Today I found another excellent, really really excellent web interface! It is based on ruby, sinatra and jquery!
you can find it here: http://madebynathan.com/2010/06/25/last-fm-on-embedded-systems/

I’ve installed git, ruby and sinatra on my raspberry pi , created the config.yml file and I was good to go!
(shell-fm was already installed on my r-pi following my precedent blog post)
Look here! Isn’t it nice? There’s also Album cover!!!
Nice work!Image


Raspberry pi: no audio after update

I had a mini heart attack when I found that after the last update/upgrade of debian ‘Raspbian’ distro, audio was absent!!!
“here we go!” – I’ve said to myself – “Finally I’ve managed to broken this little pi..” . No audio, only music with HUGE noise! signal was so low!
But after a few minute I typed into a ssh session to the pi, the command “alsamixer” and found that audio was MUTED! Y U NO STAY UNMUTED AFTER UPDATE? everything is fine now.
Never get mini heart attacks for these things!

Raspberry Pi, Last.fm, Shell-fm: a Lightweight Last.fm Radio Player

If you own a Raspberry Pi and also a last.fm account, you should then totally try this out!
Since the Rasp-Pi is a linux box, and since they’ve released the freshly new Raspbian distribution, Shell-fm works here too!
Go to http://nex.scrapping.cc/shell-fm/ and download&compile everything you need (I’ve installed&used synaptic to fetch some libraries), then launch shell-fm !
Works great and it’s command line interface is straightforward!
Here’s a screenshot during a session of ssh from my mac to my rasp-pi box sitting near my router(in a galaxy far far away).
(Audio isn’t that bad, after all.)

Shortcuts for command line interface (commands for network interface via sockets differ)
