Reply To: 0.2.4 and transcoding


I’ve compiled mt-daapd before and done a by-hand install (i.e., not made a .deb), and am probably close to the point where I can make a deb for my AMD64-SMP starting-all-over-again-in-Etch system, and I wonder whether I should bother.

I note you have some kind of race condition on SMP, and I do prize the server staying up 24x7x365. Will mt-daapd get anything important out of a dual core or even a 64-bit single-core system that I wouldn’t get by installing the i386 deb? It’s not like I think the processor will be severely loaded by anything that I expect mt-daapd to be doing on my network.

Should I expect that i386 .deb to work at all on AMD64?

Will the Linux version ever take on the Firefly name?

…and for my own two cents, I quite like the idea that you have a Debian package available – looking at it from the Debian side, software never seems complete to me now if it hasn’t been packaged.
