    do you compile lcd4linux or use the ipk? looks r903 doesn’t contain driver, and r1034/1037 gives segfault.

    and, could you tell me what lcd do you use?

    michu, you compiled the lcd4linux yourself; could you share the ipk files ?

    hey tdouez

    you can download the ipk on the openwrt site or compile it yourself. so the app is always up to date!

    I tried to compile lcd4linux with MPD plugin but I am running in to issues with configure not being able to locate libmpdclient.c and libmpdclient.h files.
    I am compiling it on Seagate Dockstar, running Debian Squeeze, kernel 2.6.32-5-kirkwood.

    Standard lcd4linux installed via apt-get runs fine, just does not have MPD plugin.

    Any suggestions/pointers will be appreciated.

    I used latest version installed from SVN, it identifies itself as 0.11.0-SVN

    Hi Michu,
    Any idea where the configure script expect the libmpdclient.h to be located?
    I have it in ./lcd4linux directory but scrip can not find it during ./configure process.
    Should it be located somewhere else?

    Thanks for your help.

    BTW, the version that I compiled and build from SVN is 0.11.0-SVN-1092

    I would certainly try that if I knew how to remove dependency from autoconf ;-)

    I looked at plugin_mpd.c and noticed two things:
    - since version 0.8 it does not require libmpd
    - it already has #include “libmpd/libmpdclient.h”

    Should I create ./libmpd subfolder in the build directory and copy libmpdclient files there?

    OK, I guess I managed to remove dependency and I also used absolute path for libmpdclient in plugin and that did it!

    Thanks for your help.

    Now I need to play with config file a bit, not all widgets from your sample config file are working yet.

    OK, I got patch file from the link above, applied it and created both libmpdclient files and recompiled the lcd4linux with mpd plugin.

    I have some widgets working and some not, which is weird.

    here is the summary:
    mpd::artist OK
    mpd::title OK
    mpd::album OK
    mpd::file OK
    mpd::totalTimeSec NFG
    mpd::elapsedTimeSec NFG
    mpd::bitRate current song ID-1
    mpd::getSamplerateHz current song ID-1
    mpd::getAudioChannels current song ID
    mpd::getRepeatInt OK
    mpd::getRandomInt OK
    mpd::getStateInt NFG
    mpd::getVolume OK
    mpd::getSongsInDb OK
    mpd::getMpdUptime OK
    mpd::getMpdPlayTime OK
    mpd::getMpdDbPlayTime OK
    mpd::getMpdPlaylistLength NFG
    mpd::getMpdPlaylistGetCurrentId NFG

    mpd::formatTimeMMSS OK
    pd::formatTimeDDHHMM OK

    The mpd is version 0.15.12
    I will try to update the plugin, but since I never did any programming in C, I hope you would not mind if I ask question here and there.

    Hi Roman,
    I did using the libmpd 0.17, mpd 0.14, hacking the libmpdclient.h and plugin_mpd.c.. Remember that the struct into the hrader file is not corresponding to the reality :-)
