Where (folder) should I install a new version of mpd?
#1
Thumbs Down 
I have compiled a new version of mpd and it installs fine on Snakeoil. However, it does not show in the media player section.  The installation points are:
==================================================================
Installing mpd to /usr/local/bin
Installing /home/music/MPD-master/systemd/system/mpd.socket to /usr/local/lib/systemd/system
Installing /home/music/MPD-master/output/release/systemd/system/mpd.service to /usr/local/lib/systemd/system
Installing /home/music/MPD-master/systemd/user/../system/mpd.socket to /usr/local/lib/systemd/user
Installing /home/music/MPD-master/output/release/systemd/user/mpd.service to /usr/local/lib/systemd/user
Installing /home/music/MPD-master/mpd.svg to /usr/local/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps
Installing /home/music/MPD-master/AUTHORS to /usr/local/share/doc/mpd
Installing /home/music/MPD-master/COPYING to /usr/local/share/doc/mpd
Installing /home/music/MPD-master/NEWS to /usr/local/share/doc/mpd
Installing /home/music/MPD-master/README.md to /usr/local/share/doc/mpd
====================================================================

I think I should be somewhere as user folder or home folder or such.  Can I get some guidance?

when I run "ninja install" to install the mpd what directory should I point to?

Thanks in advance!!

have a look at /var/www/players/

There are various mpd folders in there. Duplicate one of them, modify the contents to point to your local MPD, and it will show up in the list.

Thanks for you reply! I have been able to compile SACD ISO support into the latest mpd. If it works on Snakeoil I am happy to "donate" it to your cause!!


I placed my mpd exec in a new /var/www/players folder and copied contents from another one.......I don't think that's what you mean? You say "modify the contents to point to your local MPD".  So its a symlink?

I don't fully get your instructions.  Can you please elaborate a lot more?

Maybe with some code assuming my mpd is in a folder "/usr/bin/mpd".  I have now mpd in "/usr/bin" and "/usr/local/bin".  I forgot to track the changes so I think the latter is from my new build.


Regards.

Thanks Smile. I'm gonna make most things open source soon. I think music-players already is. You can submit a pull request from there.

The MPD you build should be in /usr/local/bin by default.

Copy or move your custom MPD binary inside the newly created folder in /var/www/players. And checking out the scripts inside and modify as necessary. You will also need to update the MPD configuration template and update the MPD database to it's own directory. That way you can switch between different versions of MPD and not worry about constant DB updates. MPDs can usually share the database across different versions, but we have MPDs as old as 0.17 and this just make things easier.

Have a look at the different MPD folders in there and hopefully you should be able to get things going.
