The raid instructions should work, but I'm not sure it's the kirkwood version you need. It won't break it to try!

What do you mean by "raid instructions"?

The Terastation 3 has the discs in a raid array for back up or speed as opposed to a single hard disc in a Linkstation. If you look at the instructions on the first page of this thread, there are two variations in the instructions: raid and non-raid.
I assume that you have it set up as a raid array which is why the raid variations in the instructions should work for your NAS. If you have the directory /mnt/array1/share then use the raid variation.
I am not sure that the kirkwood download is for this NAS but there should be one version on the download page for v.7.0.9 that works: http://www.twonkyforum.com/downloads/7.0.9-Special/ I would still try kirkwood first.

Just installed Twonky 7.0.9 on a Cloudstation CS-WV with RAID array. Works like a dream. Great instructions too - much appreciated!!

Had a small issue with an Xbox 360 not recognising the Twonky Server with v7.0.8 but it seemed to work fine once I installed v7.0.9. Not sure why but happy its working now.

Would highly recommend any Cloudstation users to install Twonky as the built-in UPnP thing is useless.

Cheers :up:

Hi All,

Twonky 7.0.11 & 7.0.12-RC1 can be installed using the same instructions at the beginning of this thread. Download it from here:

Code:
http://www.twonkyforum.com/downloads/7.0.11-special/twonky-kirkwood-special-7.0.11.zip

http://www.twonkyforum.com/downloads/7.0.12-RC1-special/twonky-kirkwood-special-7.0.12-RC1.zip

They have changed (corrected) the -port parameter so that it is now -httpport. This causes a problem with our customized twonky.sh script if you have enabled webdav.

I have fixed the script so that it should work with both the old and the new versions of Twonky. Download the new script from one of the links below.

Code:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/49494657/Twonky/non-raid/twonky.sh

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/49494657/Twonky/raid/twonky.sh

This script also puts the log files in the twonkydb directory rather than /tmp.

P.S. I have found that both 7.0.11 and 7.0.12-RC1 are causing twonky to lock up (100% cpu usage) on my LS-XL after a couple of days. I am unsure if it is twonky or some bad media or a misconfiguration. Either way, I have gone back to 7.0.9 for the moment to see if the problem reoccurs.

Hi everyone,

As you might have noticed, Twonky site has been down for a while (about a week) now.
I was wondering if someone who has downloaded the 7.0.8 or 7.0.9 could share it.

Thanks in advance

If you want to install Twonky 7.2.1, the process is exactly the same using updated download links. I made the script file below for the non-RAID linkstation and just copied it onto the LinkStation and did chmod 777 on it, then ran it:-
Code:
#!/bin/sh
/etc/init.d/twonky.sh stop
mv /etc/init.d/twonky.sh /etc/init.d/twonky.sh.old
chmod -x /etc/init.d/twonky.sh.old
mkdir /mnt/disk1/twonky
mkdir /mnt/disk1/twonky/twonkydb
cd /mnt/disk1/twonky
wget http://www.twonkyforum.com/downloads/7.2.1/twonky-kirkwood-7.2.1.zip
unzip twonky-kirkwood-7.2.1.zip
rm twonky-kirkwood-7.2.1.zip
chmod 755 twonkys* twonkyproxy twonkywebdav cgi-bin/* plugins/*
mv twonkyserver-default.ini twonkyserver-default.ini.old
wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5877837/7.08/twonkyserver-default.ini
cd /etc/init.d
wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/49494657/Twonky/non-raid/twonky.sh
chmod +x twonky.sh
/etc/init.d/twonky.sh start


Hope it's useful.

Hello all,
I have followed this procedure in order to install twonky special 7.0.9 on my linkstation dh500 gl firmaware 2.10. Everything has worked well and i can stream both music and videos, but the twonky server will not automatically start when I start the linkstation. I have to login as root and run the command "/etc/init.d/twonky.sh start" manually everytime the linkstation is restarted.

Do you have any idea why this is like this? Should i change the init.d configuration?

Thanks in advance for your answers,
fhab

Hi fhab123,

It looks like firmware 2.10 uses a different method of starting and stopping services.

You need to add a line to the end of /etc/init.d/rcS with this command:
Code:
# echo "exec_sh twonky.sh" >> /etc/init.d/rcS

And another line to /etc/init.d/shutdown_proc.sh
Code:
# echo "/etc/init.d/twonky.sh stop" >> /etc/init.d/shutdown_proc.sh

Would anyone know how to edit the ini file so that it can search for media outside of share folder? Eg in my case mnt/array1/

I've used a combination of the great work here to run twonky 7.2.1 thanks to Jackkdaw, ColinTaylor, SANGERA2. :up:

My other issue is that once I have installed twonky, the share folder becomes read only & I can't change it.
I'm a complete newb to this so thanks to everyone who contributed to getting me this far.
I have the terastation TS-XEL in raid 5.

Thanks in advance to any and all you can help.

Change the following line in /mnt/array1/share/twonky/twonkydb/twonkyserver.ini
Code:
contentbase=/mnt/array1/share
to
Code:
contentbase=/mnt/array1
