    I’m considering to use FMS on Debian. I was wondering if it’s mandatory to install a graphical interface on the server to install, configure and run Flash Media Server?

    • absolutely not, you do not need any graphical interface to install the fms. just go to the steps and all will be ok…reply me if you meet any troubles and i will help/advice you without any problems. Good luck.
