NetBSD could as well serve as a music (mpd) or video player. You have to research which packages are needed for such a use case, and document it in a tutorial.
Ideally, create a pkgsrc meta package including all the dependencies.
Report bugs you find on the way.
I would like to work on this task.
This task has been assigned to Pogacean Victor. You have 72 hours to complete this task, good luck!
You're working on the task for a day already. This shouldn't be hard one, thus you should have something working at this point or at least a plan how to do that soon.
If you are stuck, misdirected, or experience problems, we need to get you back on track.
Please, contact us on #netbsd-code so that we could discuss your work.
The deadline of the task has been extended with 2 days and 0 hours.
This is good, but there're two things that would be better to change.First, you write "You can create /etc/rc.d script to make netbsd autostart mpd", but why? Doesn't audio/musicpd contain this script?
You omitted instructions wow to make player reboot and get back into operational state after it. But these are important.
Second, you use pkgin, but there's no such tool in NetBSD at that point. Debug your document, e.g. following your own instructions on clear NetBSD system.
Third, doesn't NetBSD contain ftpd already? Why do you install tnftpd package?
Fourth. Please, describe what one can use to control your device. In particular, IIRC, musicpd doesn't list files just copied to directory it considers audio storage.
It seems that user has to install some program in order to control the player. This program might need some configuration. Provide instructions how to setup such a program and get the player working.
The work on this task is ready to be reviewed.
Thank you! I would argue the editing, but the article seems fine. We will just render it ourselves to markdown.
As you did fine with this documentation task, maybe you want to take up another task? Especially this one could be good for you: http://www.google-melange.com/gci/task/view/google/gci2012/7984211
You could write down your experience with configuring the ftpd.
Congratulations, this task has been completed successfully.
