I was looking around and see that NSLU2 seems to work as an iTunes server. My setup at home uses a mac mini that serves iTunes content on my network, but using the SheevaPlug would free up the mac mini.

Does this correctly describe the process for getting it working...or is there something else I should do?

I have used firefly and it works great, but I haven't tried it on my sheevaplug yet (since I don't use apple products and I haven't found another application for a daap server).

Try using aptitude, since there should be arm builds of most progs in the repos through apt-get. I think it's called mt-daapd.

So, try
Code:
apt-get install mt-daapd

or

Code:
apt-cache search mt-daapd

to find what the package is called if the first doesn't work. Let us know the results.

I have firefly running on the plug. It works great! Just to test I shared my iTunes directory from my Mac with samba and firefly managed to scan the whole thing (it took a little while) and served it up to my local network.

I just did an:

apt-get install mt-daapd
