    Raspberry Pi Asset Specifics

    Asset UPnP is now available on the Raspberry pi, this cheap $25 computer is ideal to run a lightweight UPnP server that is totally silent, pair with a USB flash disk

    We have tested against Raspbian, on the Model B pi.

    Installation details

    Code:
    Log-in to the pi (login: pi   password: raspberry)
    
    Create a folder for Asset: 
    
    cd /usr/bin
    sudo mkdir asset
    sudo chmod 777 asset
    cd asset
    
    Download asset Premium:
    
    wget http://secure.dbpoweramp.com/downloadorder.aspx?ordernum=123456789 -O asset.tar.gz
    
    (where 123456789 is your actual order number)
    
    or download asset free:
    
    wget http://www.dbpoweramp.com/install/Asset-RaspberryPi.tar.gz
    
    extract it:
    
    tar -zxvf *.gz
    rm *.gz
    
    Run Asset:
    
    cd /usr/bin/asset/bin
    ./AssetUPnP
    
    Once running it will show Presentation URL   type this into a web browser on any computer on the same network, example:
    
    http://192.168.1.13:45537
    
    Then click 'configure' to specify the options
    Setting Asset to start automatically

    Code:
    crontab -e
    press the down arrow until the cursor is right at the bottom (on a blank line, press enter if not on a blank line)
    type:
    
    @reboot /usr/bin/asset/bin/AssetUPnP
    
    Press keys CTRL + X   choose Y to save, press enter
    
    restart system:  
    
    sudo reboot
    
    The web log-in will be the same as when run manually, if at a later date you cannot find this address (or port), log into the pi and type:
    
    ifconfig
    
    this will show on the inet addr   for eth0, take the shown ip address and:
    
    http://x.x.x.x:45537
    
    Where x.x.x.x is the address shown
    
    
    
    To find the port asset is using:
    
    sudo netstat -pln
    
    look for the lines with AssetUPnP on the end, it should be shown as 0.0.0.0.0:45537  (for configuration)  (as well as 0.0.0.0.0:26125 which is used by UPnP devices  and 0.0.0.0.0:1900 for broadcast)
    Mounting a USB Flash disk

    Code:
    Look for the drive:
    
    sudo fdisk -l
    
    It will most likely be called sda1
    
    Make a folder for this drive:
    
    sudo mkdir /media/usbflash
    
    and mount:
    
    sudo mount -t vfat -o rw /dev/sda1 /media/usbflash/
    
    Check files can be read:
    
    ls -l /media/usbflash/
    
    Then on Asset configuration page set the path as /media/usbflash/
    
    To make so this flash disc is automatically added on reboot:
    
    sudo nano /etc/fstab 
    
    and add the line:
    
    /dev/sda1      /media/usbflash     vfat   defaults   0     0
    
    (to save CTRL + X, Y to save)
    Mounting a CIFS (SMB / Windows) Network Share
