Project Unfork StatusHere's an update on Project Unfork, plus other neat things.
IP Space Migration ContinuesAll Funtoo user containers in the 8.28 IP space will be moving into our new IP space (172.97) over the next few days. If you have DNS set up -- be sure to watch your container and update to the new IP! container.host.funtoo.org DNS will be updated after the move.
Funtoo Hosting IP MoveFuntoo user containers with IPs in the 72.18.x.x range will be gradually migrating to new IP addresses this week. If you have DNS entries for your containers, please be aware that your DNS will need to be updated.
To install Pianobar, emerge it:
# emerge pianobar
After you have emerged Pianobar, you can run it with
pianobar. If you dislike typing your username and password every time that you run pianobar, create the file
~/.config/pianobar/config and add the following lines to it:
password = YOURPASSWORD user = firstname.lastname@example.org
Easy login (with encryption)
If leaving a plaintext password for your Pandora account somewhere on your filesystem makes you nervous, you can use gpg to decrypt a file that contains your password. Change your configuration to reflect the one below if you would like to encrypt your password:
password_command = gpg --decrypt ~/.passwords/pianobar user = email@example.com
To configure keybindings, check out
man pianobar. All keybindings can be added to
~/.config/pianobar/config. All the keybindings in the man page will begin with the line
Other configuration options
|audio_quality||The quality of the audio. Can be set to: high, medium, or low.|
|autostart_station||Select a station ID that you would like to play when Pianobar starts.|
|proxy||Use a http proxy.|
Not compiled with threads support
If you recieve the following warning message (
[aac @ 0x7faccc003cd0] Warning: not compiled with thread support, using thread emulation) while running Pianobar, add threads support to ffmpeg, then rebuild it:
