So is there any command to confirm/check if Samba is already running or not?
And when we reboot the Pogo device, will Samba start automatically or do we always have to start it manually?
We already talked about this.
We need to figure out how to edit start-up script to include Samba start-up and mounting of the USB drives.
As of running PMS on Pogo, I don't think it is going to work, not for me at least. PMS needs nice GUI so I am able to correct incorrect matches and maybe enter my own metadata to my titles and then it is supposed to be at least Core 2 Duo class machine so it will be able to do transcoding for the Android clients. I just don't see Pogo as capable of such tasks.
Perhaps some sort of powerful yet not power-hungry Linux machine would do instead of Windows. But not our beloved ArchLinux Pogo.
