It’s Stupid, But It Works

Written by Arief Fajar Nursyamsu · 40 sec read > 137 views

I didn’t give up actually but I want to make everyone happy :D

I need to install a Music Player Daemon (MPD) for office server in order to play music while phone operator is transfering a phone call. It’s an Ubuntu server and I spent almost a week to get the MPD works but no result. This errors keep showing.

Nov 25 16:03 : Error opening alsa device “default”: No such file or directory
Nov 25 16:03 : problems opening audio device while playing “Maroon 5 – She Will Be Loved.mp3”

I tried to play music using mplayer and it worked, so there should be no problem with any kind related with sound card driver.

I got pressure to get it worked soon and mplayer can not work on background (anyone?). So, instead of wasting my time and make everyone happy, I did this things.

  1. Login to windows server (remotely)
  2. Login to music server from windows server
  3. Play music continuously using mplayer
  4. Logout from Windows server while keeping my login to music server
  5. Done

Now the music is still playing, I have a lot of time to fix the MPD and everyone is happy.

LOL… :D

  1. why don’t yout try Debian, it’s more stable and suitable for server usage.

    I’ve experienced with Ubuntu, yes it’s buggy.
