Installing Squeezeboxserver 7.5.1 on Hardy Heron

I’ve recently had to install Squeezebox 7.5.1 server on a virtual machine¬†running Ubuntu Hardy Heron, so I though I would blog some instructions (just to remind me) and help anyone else.

  • Download Squeezebox 7.5.1 to your machine from here¬†
  • Or from the shell prompt of your linux box type:
  • wget http://downloads.slimdevices.com/
    SqueezeboxServer_v7.5.1/squeezeboxserver_7.5.1_all.deb
  • Install the relevent dependencies;
  • sudo apt-get install linux-libc-dev libc6-dev zlib1g-dev libmysqlclient15-dev
  • Install squeezeboxserver:
  • sudo dpkg -i squeezeboxserver_7.5.1_all.deb

All done. :-D

  • I don’t know if this is strictly necessary, but I found this link on a website about adding audio transcoding support to squeezebox server.
  • sudo apt-get install faad flac lame mplayer ffmpeg alac-decoder sox wavpack shntool
