[DS-207+] Installing PMS (PS3 Media Server)

Unread post by atrem » Sun Feb 08, 2009 1:51 pm


I was wondering if anyone has succesfully installed PMS ( PS3 Media Server) on the Synology DS-207+ ?

This is what I did so far:

- Installed a Java VM called ‘jamvm’ (version 1.5.1-1) through ipkg package based install.
- Installed 'classpath' (version 0.97.2-2) also with ipkg install.
- Downloaded and unpacked PMS-linux-1.04
- Made the shell script executable (chmod ug+x PMS.sh)
- Changed the following code in PMS.sh:

Code: Select all

# Setup the JVM

if [ "x$JAVA" = "x" ]; then
            if [ "x$JAVA_HOME" != "x" ]; then
and also:

Code: Select all

# Execute the JVM

exec "$JAVA" $JAVA_OPTS -Xmx512M -Djava.encoding=UTF-8 -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true -jar "$PMS_JAR" "$@"
- Now when I execute ./PMS.sh I get:

Code: Select all

- I tried to compile several other versions of classpath myself but no luck.

dont know if you solved your problem, but the java app is not able to find the file libgconfpeer.so

its looking in its classpath for this file. you need to either specify the location of this file via the -classpath arg for the jvm (or check this jvm's syntax, "classpath" is what Sun uses for its jvm)...or u can simply put the .so file in one of the folders the app is already looking in, typically a subfolder from where u start the jvm...

hope this helps.

Hi Gregoire,
With a lot of effort I finally managed to get PMS working on my DS207+.
I didn't succeed to listen to webradio and watch (lowres) on the PS3 yet, I can only view photo's and listen to mp3's at the moment .

Here's more info about it from PMS's forum:
