chris: If you get "error while loading shared libraries: libavformat.so.52" as I did then you need to install ffmpeg also

jurgen: uShare has been updated and works directly with the x360 after configuring only the /opt/etc/ushare.conf and booting uShare manually. Is there a script out there that automatically boots uShare when starting the NSLU2? Thanks!

jerry: The init script doesn't seem to launch ushare with the conf file options. If you launch ushare manually with the -f option pointing to ushare.conf it works fine. Also the ushare.conf parameter ENABLE_XBOX=yes should be USHARE_ENABLE_XBOX=yes

Notes

If you are using it for an xbox 360, the default ipkg currently up (as of Feb 17 2008) has a few bugs:

 * the script doesn't pass on the XBOX mode to the executable (it should either pass on "-x" or use the "-c" flag so ushare actually reads a conf file!)
 * the stop command won't work because ushare isn't creating a PID file, so the bash script should be modified so it does!

FYI, once I got the xbox profile going, I had to go to the xbox's video source page, selected it twice (first time it failed), and then same for a video (had to do it twice), but once it was up, it worked great (avi file).

Also, you can add media directories and manage settings via the web interface (be sure to set the port number in the /opt/etc/ushare.conf configuration file):
