I have recently re-purposed my old desktop PC as a 'server' running Ubuntu LTS 12.04. I want to use the machine as my primary squeezebox server in place of my HTPC MacMini (to reduce the strain on the MacMini). I managed to install squeezebox server without to much difficulty and added Music folder of my 'Home' folder to the library - all good and it worked fine.
I then realised that the disk was almost completely full and decided to install a second drive in the machine and move the music to that so that the primary drive could be used for other things. I installed a 1.5TB drive in the machine and formatted it as one partition with ext4 using Ubuntu's 'Disk Utility' app.
I then moved all my music to a 'Music' folder on the new drive using nautilus. The problem is that I cannot add the new drive/folder in the LMS web settings.
The old music folder was located at: /home//Music (This can be found fine by clicking browse in LMS web settings)
When I go to the settings page at 'Basic Settings','Media Folders' and click browse, I cannot find the new drive - it is not showing up.
The new drive is located at:
I can access the new drive without any problems using nautilus, or by navigating through the terminal, but if I use the 'browse' feature from within LMS web settings the folder cannot be found. (The 'mediadisk' drive is not showing up in the 'media' folder)
I have even tried pasting:
/media/mediadisk/Music into the 'Media Folders' field but nothing works!
I must confess I am pretty new to Linux but if I was to guess I would say it was a problem with the permissions, right? Can anyone help?
