yes, the sheevaplug is pretty cool so far, this is the last thing I *must* get working (or else find another itunes server). It turns out I have to do an apt-get update in order to install the mt-daapd (looks like a library problem I think). I’ll layoff the upgrades. Could you explain how to up the debug level and where the log file is? I’ve seen reference on here to them, but never how you do it, I’ll keep hunting. It is somewhat promising that it at least came up once. I was just used to my other pc where it installed and that was the end of it, runs perfectly.
