@uboot upgrade or clean install?

Still seems to write to /usr/share/bubbleupnpserver, e.g. cache and Playlists directories.

Shouldn't it be using /var/lib/bubbleupnp instead?

I changed some things.

+ created dedicated user (the server is running as bubbleupnp)

+ changed workingdirectory (you must move your configuration.xml to /var/lib/bubbleupnp/)

+ added file for runflags under /etc/conf.d/bubbleupnpserver

If you're experiencing problems, please let me know.

Let me take a look

On a fresh install, seems the file /etc/default/bubbleupnpserver is no longer created.

To make any changes to the config, you have to edit /usr/share/bubbleupnpserver/configuration.xml (created after the first service run).

Next update is tricky!

can you change the dependency "jre7-openjdk-headless" to "java-runtime-headless-jre>=7"? "java-runtime-headless-jre" is provided by OpenJava AND Oracle Java.
Also I think a JDK is a bit overpowered for BubbleUPNP. JRE is enough.


Instead of running the server as root.. you don't you create a new user for it?


Because this is a third party software with special license and folder structure, maybe you should install it to /opt?

Thanks! Fixed that.

==> Starting build()...
/tmp/packerbuild-1000/bubbleupnpserver/bubbleupnpserver/PKGBUILD: line 18: unzip: command not found
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
The build failed.

unzip should probably be added to the dependencies for build.

Please note that bubbleupnpserver is NOT a UPNP/DLNA server in its own right, and needs a backend such as mediatomb, minidlna, plex, whatever to feed it with media. The purpose of bubbleupnp is to transcode media in formats that Google/Android devices (such as ChromeCast) don't support into formats that are supported.
