I got Moose running using Moose 0.49, carefully following the instructions in http://www.rusticrhino.com/drlovegrove/setup.html
, getting the right mySQL DLL, installing Skywalker's add-on, and using the data from the NV system email & logs after installing the add-on.
Now if we could just get all the rest of the slimserver GUI offloaded off the NV+ and leave only the fileserving applications behind we would all be much happier!
It would be amazing if you could gen the database offline of the NV+ and install it using file sharing for example.
Slimserver appears to need some modularization. It appears to assume that all its admin, control, transcoding, persistence and search functions are all together with a web server. It might be worth looking at how to split it up:
- file server/transcoder/SB3 GUI control
- an offboard admin GUI using a command line interface to the backend
- an onboard/offboard method for generating the db
- an offboard PC control GUI using the command line interface (this is Moose!)
In my opinion, you shouldn't have to run a web server on the NV+ to run the slimserver. The back end (NV+ native part) should be able to be command line driven plus whatever the SB* needs.
Since it is free code (I think) maybe its worth a look to rationalize it...
Just my $0.02 of course...
Please add this add-on to the official add-on list. It makes slimserver SO much speedier to use.
