I am using Fedora Core 5 and trying to setup the mt-daapd as a music server for our office. I am unable to get it to work using Avahi for the mDNS. has anyone done this before? I have tried using the latest stable version of the mt-daapd rpm with no luck.
The rpm that you downloaded almost certainly doesn’t have support for avahi. You can compile mt-daapd against avahi in howl compatible mode, and there is also a patch floating for native avahi. I’ll probably integrate one of the ones floating around here before the next stable.
