Misterhouse on Synology NAS

Misterhouse:
http://misterhouse.sourceforge.net/

I’ve confirmed that misterhouse does work with /dev/usb/ttyUSB0.

I recommend unzipping Misterhouse in /usr/local

DiskStation> cd /usr/local
DiskStation> gunzip < /volume1/Downloads/misterhouse-2.105.tar.gz | tar xvf -

Make sure you run the configure which uses h2ph. h2ph is just a perl script, but you have to make sure you download the your systems GPL source from Synology and change one line in the Misterhouse configure script:

#cd /usr/include
cd /usr/local/powerpc-linux/include

When you run the script it will remove all Windows files and will use the C header files to produce Perl header files ending in .phFollow this:http://misterhouse.sourceforge.net/install.html#quick_install_instructionsand this:http://misterhouse.sourceforge.net/install.html#unix_detailed_install_instructionsIn /usr/local/mh/bin create a file called mh.private.ini and add these basic entries:

sound_program=
latitude=12.345678
longitude=-123.456789
time_zone=-8
city=YourCity
zone=SomeMajorCityNearYou
state=YourStateAbbreviation
zip_code= 12345
dbi_user=mhuser
dbi_password=SomePassword
voice_text=
cm11_port=/dev/ttyUSB0
tk=0

Now when you start Misterhouse do something like this to run it in the background and have its output go to some logfile:

DiskStation> cd /usr/local/mh/bin
DiskStation> ./mhl & > /var/log/mh.out

Now you should be able to go to http://192.168.x.x:8080 and access Misterhouse.Please read the Misterhosue docs from here…
