460b9539 1Setting up a standalone DisOrder client
2=======================================
3
4Although DisOrder can still only play from a single computer, it is possible to
5control it over the network if the server has a 'listen PORT' directive in its
6configuration file.
7
8There is currently no standard DisOrder port number.

111. Configure the software with --without-server (and, optionally,
12--without-python) and build and install it. Set up a stub config in
13/etc/disorder/config (or /usr/local/etc/disorder/config if you didn't
14set a nondefault --prefix) with the following contents:
15
16 connect jukebox PORT
17
18where PORT is the same as 'listen PORT' on the server.

212. Copy the password file for each user to /etc/disorder/config.USER,
22the contents being:
23
24 password PASSWORD
25
26Alternatvely, each user can use ~/.disorder/passwd, with the same contents. If
27the DisOrder username differs from the local username then use a 'username'
28directive.

313. Test by issuing 'disorder playing'.

33
344. Run 'disobedience' for the GUI client.
35
36
37The web interface could in principle be made to work on a separate
38machine from the main server, though it is unlikely to be efficient
39and at the moment it is built whenever the server is, so you will have
40to unpick them a bit yourself if you wish to do this.
