    After burning a new max2play image for my Odroid (to fix another problem) I now want to configure it so that my Squeezebox set up is working as it was before. To get the BBC iPlayer plugin working I am following the instructions here :

    However I cannot replace the file with the new one. If I signon with Filezilla using Odroid / Odroid , Port 22 I just get the following message when I try to delete or rename the old file:
    Status: Deleting „/var/lib/squeezeboxserver/cache/InstalledPlugins/Plugins/BBCiPlayer/“
    Command: rm „/var/lib/squeezeboxserver/cache/InstalledPlugins/Plugins/BBCiPlayer/“
    Error: rm /var/lib/squeezeboxserver/cache/InstalledPlugins/Plugins/BBCiPlayer/ permission denied

    If I use file manager in the max2play gui, I still get a permission denied message. I managed to do it last year but I cannot remember how.
    Do I need to change user permissions or something? How do I solve this? Sorry but I am a complete numpti at Linux command line stuff.

    Hi Nojelc,
    You need root access to change files in your image. You can either log on as odroid and then as root with the command „su root“ or log in directly with root. The password is „max2play“. However, we do not recommend using this login for usual tasks.
