Re: why cant mt-daapd be done on a mac (PPC) instead on the linkstation?
- In principle you can setup a crostool so you can build for the
Linkstation on a mac (or even linux PC but that is hareder). This is
non-trivial but can be done. If you covert your Linkstation to a Kuro
and install Gentoo then you can even setup that compiles are done on a
bunch of different machines on your network, again not trivial to
setup but can be done using distcc
