The Synology NAS can host the llink media streaming server. If you don't compile it yourself, please note below which binary you should use for your model. The binary packages are not made to be integrated with the admin web interface.


Binaries

Latest binaries
This contains a startup script, a Synology installation guide (README-Synology.txt) and a prepared llink.conf that points to the Synology default /volume1/video share. Place this binary in the /volume1 directory, untar and open the README-synology.txt file with a text editor for further assistance. Note: the startup script and the installation guide was written for the synology_x06_ppc in mind.


The following models uses x06_ppc version per default: DS-101g+, DS-106j, DS-106e, DS-106, DS-106x , CS-406, RS-406 and CS-406e

The following x07-models share the same cpu family as x06 and should also use the x06_ppc-version of llink: DS-107e, DS-107, DS-207, DS-207.128 and CS-407e

The following models should use the x07_arm: DS-107+, DS-107+.128, DS-207+, CS-407 and RS-407

Once you've installed the binary you have to update the llink.conf file so it points to your media files, uses the right port etc.

Installation pre-requisites

Telnet/SSH-patch installed on the NAS.

If you want to autostart llink from boot, you can use this script.
Otherwise you must enter via telnet and start manually after shutdown or restart.

If you have Optware enabled you can use the appropriate feed to automagically download and install llink, from version 2.0.9. See feed links above.

Toolchains

x06

For the synology_x06 compiles, the toolchain for the DS1010g has been used successfully, found at NSLU2-linux.org.

x07

If you use a Synology NAS from the x07-series there is a toolchain available for compiling source at Synology.com

Unfortunately, this toolchain is missing the Linux headers required. asm->asm-arm, linux and asm-generic. One way to solve this is go download Linux-2.6.15 linux kernel. (There is one on NMT forum, probably one in my ftp somewhere - anyway, it is GPL and available everywhere).

Issue the following commands:

# sudo bash
# cd /usr/local/arm-marvell-linux-gnu/arm-marvell-linux-gnu/include/
# rsync -arv $YOUR_PATH/linux-2.6.15/include/asm-arm/ asm/
# rsync -arv $YOUR_PATH/linux-2.6.15/include/asm-generic/ asm-generic/
# rsync -arv $YOUR_PATH/linux-2.6.15/include/linux/ linux/
