Don't use Napster myself, but Google appears to indicate that you could set up a SHOUTcast server on your PC to stream audio to XBMC. For details of how to set up SHOUTcast with Gentoo/SL, see Streaming Radio With SHOUTcast
. Doesn't look simple.
You will need to install the packages media-sound/shoutcast-server-bin and media-sound/shoutcast-trans-bin, neither of which are in Entropy at the moment. You could put in a request via the SL Bugzilla (see the link Bugs
at the top right of this page) for these two packages to be added to the Entropy repository, or, alternatively, you could install them via Portage as root user in a Konsole/Terminal window:
- Code: Select all
emerge -1v shoutcast-server-bin shoutcast-trans-bin
equo database spmsync
The last command above tells Entropy what you did via Portage.
