Here is a kind of user's guide for using main applications in my image ;)
Note that the default login/password for http pages is root/kuroadmin (same for ftping the kurobox)

aMule (eDonkey P2P client)
to run aMule, run "/scripts/set_amule.sh install", it will ask you where you want to put temp & finished files, just give a directory under /mnt/... Then give the password you want to acess aMule interface.
You can log to http://kuro-box:4711 and enter your password ;) You will need to add at least on server somewhere in aMule server page ;)
run "/scripts/set_amule.sh remove" to stop aMule
Important note : if you stay at the login page even when you enter the good password, it's a problem with you browser cookies ! Just clean cookies related to your kurobox, or make cookies active if it's not alreeady done ;)

ccxstream XBOX Media Center (XBMC) streaming server
run "/scripts/set_ccxstream.sh install" to install ccxstream
run "/scripts/set_ccxstream.sh remove" to stop ccxsteam
By default, it will share the /mnt content (edit /etc/init.d/ccxstream to change this)

CGI-IRC an irc client running on the kurobox with an http interface
Just log to http://kurobox/cgiirc/irc.cgi , enter wanted login/server/channel and hit login ;)
If you want to allow IDENT process, you'll have to route the port 113 to your kurobox.

cjgExplorerPro an inteface to browse files on the kurobox
Just log to http://kuro-box/cep/ :)

Jinzora a http mp3 stream application
Image
Just log to http://kuro-box/jinzora2 & follow the installation guide (you can use a SQLite database or, if you are running MySQL server, a MySQL database )

kcWebTelnet (telnet interface)
Just log to http://kuro-box/kcWebTelnet/ and enter commands you want to execute ;)

Kernel 2.6.15 to run the kernel on the kurobox !
First of all, you have to check that the kernel is running well on the kurobox (for now i only compiled a kurobox HG compatible kernel).
So you'll have to run this command :
Quote:
/sbin/insmod /boot/loader.o kernel=/boot/vmlinux-2.6.15-kurobox or
/sbin/insmod -f /boot/loader.o kernel=/boot/vmlinux-2.6.15-kurobox if you have a kernel version error about loader.o

You'll have to try at least 2-3 times if it fails because of a bug in loader.o that cause the kernel not to works from times to times !
If it works well, run this to run the 2.6.15 kernel from startup :
Quote:
/scripts/set_kernel2.6.sh install

and reboot !
If you want to switch back to 2.4 kernel, just run
Quote:
/scripts/set_kernel2.6.sh remove

and reboot !
Important note :
The kernel 2.6.x kurobox patch is not yet perfect ! there is some problems/things missed :
- Flash driver not implemented (you won't be able to run write_ok or write_ng under 2.6.x kernel)
- From times to times the shutdown process will not work
- the RTC handling is not perfect (bad uptime)
- a "ps aux" command give strange values about memory usage

mt-daapd (iTunes server)
run "/scripts/set_mt-daapd.sh install" to install mt-daapd
run "/scripts/set_mt-daapd.sh remove" to stop mt-daapd
By default, it will share the /mnt/itunes/ folder (create it if needed), but you can edit /etc/mt-daapd.conf to change shared folder ;) When done, just run itunes on your computer, it should find your kurobox automatically ;)

MySQL (database server)
To run mysql database server on the kurobox, just run "/scripts/set_mysql.sh install"
to stop it, run "/scripts/set_mysql.sh remove"
You can manage your MySQL database using phpMyAdmin : http://kuro-box/phpMyAdmin

SABnzbd a nzb newsgroup leecher
Edit : my bad, i forgot to write a script !
run /usr/bin/SABnzbd.py -d -f /usr/share/doc/SABnzbd-0.1.6/SABnzbd.ini
and log to http://kuro-box:8080/sabnzbd/
in a future release of my image, it'll work as described below :
Quote:
To run SABnzbd on the kurobox, just run "/scripts/set_SABnzbd.sh install"
Log to http://kuro-box:8080/sabnzbd/
Go and configure your newsgroup server with login/password, then point him a .nbz you got from a nzb site ( http://www.binsearch.info/groups.php is a good one), and just wait for your files to be donwloaded/decrypted ;)

SWAT the Samba configuration tool
Just log to http://kuro-box:901 . Be aware that some scripts in the kurobox are overwriting samba settings (@ startup, when plugging an USB key ...), so if you change something using SWAT, it could not be applyied at next startup !

Torrentflux (a bittorrent http frontend)
Image
you need to set-up the application once (= create the database & set the administrator login/password) :
Quote:
cd /www/tf
wget http://sylver78.free.fr/kurobox/createdb.php1
mv createdb.php1 createdb.php
wget http://root:kuroadmin@localhost/tf/createdb.php
mkdir -p /mnt/torrent/.torrents
mv tf.db /mnt/torrent/.torrents

Then log to http://kuro-box/tf, the first login/password you will enter will become the administrator login/password ;) Check here for details about torrentflux

Webmin an administration package
Just log to http://kuro-box:81 , login & password are root/kuroadmin

XBT Client a bittorrent client
Image
To run XBT Client on the kurobox, just run "/scripts/set_xbt_client.sh install"
to stop it, run "/scripts/set_client.sh remove"
Then log to http://kuro-box/xbt, configure your folders & torrent port, restart XBT Client (so it updates folders to use) & have fun ;)

Forgive me if I missed something, but where does the XBT script come from? Have you sneakily release the next version of the image without telling me? (I did not think that XBT was included in the current Sylver release?)

After I indexed 40GB of mp3 files, it was painfully slow using PHP5 and SQLite. With just a few songs it was OK.

I never tested with mysql on the kuro. On my x86 machine it was OK even with a big library.

Yeah...

It is way too slow using ID3 tags with Apache, MySQL, and PHP. It was useable when set to use the filesystem to organize files.

Thanks.

I suggest you try this with my image v5.00
Quote:
- Added gnump3d v2.9.8 (a http streaming application)

It looks fast ;)

Run /usr/bin/gnump3d (i did not write installation script for this yet)

Did you run "/scripts/set_amule.sh install" ?
It asks you for the password you want !
You can log to the port 4711 , sometimes there is problems to log, just clean the cookies on your browser and this should work after that !

Hey Slyver. Thanks for all your hard work.

I just have a question:

Would it be possible to uninstall some of the programs that I probably won't be using?

Thanks again.

Most of the applications that run a daemon are not running by default (you have to "install" them using a script in /scripts directory).
Other applications are in subfolders of /www, just delete the folders you do not want !

Thanks for an awesome image sylver!

I have a question about the torrentflux. I would like to upgrade to 2.1, can I follow the instructions on torrentflux site safely? Or do I need to do something else?

btw, I highly recommend that the original post here be made into a wiki page.

One more thing, can this thread be also stickied?

thanks again!
