I am trying to make mpd and ncmpdpp read the music files from a disk in which the system is not installed. I have a few questions so I will just number them out.
- Firstly, in both mpd and ncmpcpp configs, I have set the path to the external hard disk. I am not sure if I did it well, though. This is the line; I wonder if this is the right format to type a path leading to a external(out of the OS) disk?
Second question: Does the hard disk has special permissions, or just the folder inside it? I run mpd from my main user, and I have already given reading and writing permissions in the music folder inside the external hard disk but I am not sure if i need to do something else. It still doesn't work.
After reading a bunch of threads, I wonder if I have to do something to the hard disk mount point. As far as I know, in manjaro it is being mounted automatically by default so I shouldn't need that. I read this post and got a little confused. I hope I don't need to do that for what I want to achieve:
Unable to access my secondary internal ssd on my laptop
also, here is the output of the command ps aux
carzo 1556 0.0 0.0 381152 13168 ? Ssl 17:39 0:00 mpd
That's all. Thank you very much for your help guys!
