shell-fm url format

what is the station url format in shell-fm?

using the nice and fantastic shell-fm player, the last-fm player in your beloved terminal,
you might wanna know which channels you can listen to and preferably in which
format you have to enter them.

All I found over the interwebz are here:


Hehe, meanwhile crawling through the omniscient dump, I just found another friendly
cli player lastbash (homepage) and wikipedia article. neat.

can haz this channels e.g.:

lastbash "lastfm://globaltags/jungle"
lastbash "lastfm://globaltags/glitch"
lastbash "lastfm://user/phaidros7/neighbours"
lastbash "lastfm://artist/Salmonella Dub/similarartists"

now: fun!

xm console not working (blank)

xm console not working (blank)

on some xen domUs I recently figured that the xm console didn't come
up. so investigating the issue I found out that you gotta set the
tty in the machine's config like this:

extra       = 'xencons=tty1'

but still I get a blank screen instead of the login. solution is simple,
for systems still having an inittab (eg. debian) look for the following

nano /etc/inittab

1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty1

for systems which utilize upstart already (ubuntu) look for another file:

nano /etc/event.d/tty1

start on stopped rc2
start on stopped rc3
start on stopped rc4
start on stopped rc5

stop on runlevel 0
stop on runlevel 1
stop on runlevel 6

exec /sbin/getty 38400 tty1

makes the xm console work on all my machines again.
