Installing ympd on the Raspberry Pi

ympd on the Raspberry Pi

Due to its small size, ympd is well-suited to run on the Raspberry Pi. Installing it is pretty straightforward:

git clone
cd ympd/
sudo apt-get install cmake libmpdclient-dev
mkdir build
cd build
sudo make install
sudo cp ../contrib/init.debian /etc/init.d/
sudo service ympd start

I would change:

sudo cp ../contrib/init.debian /etc/init.d/


sudo cp ../contrib/init.debian /etc/init.d/ympd

Otherwise, service doesn't see it at all.

Tried this on a Raspian Jessie installation with just MPD installed and it failed at

reporting OpenSSL library problems.
asked my resident helper and he said I needed to install them with
sudo apt-get install libssl-dev

all went well but it failed to start with
sudo service mpd start

he fixed this by running
sudo update-rc.d ympd start
