Reply To: Zero track length permissions issue


Thanks for your help, Ron. (And thanks for the excellent software! I’m a big fan and have introduced several of my friends to it).

I’ve just tried rescanning, but it doesn’t appear to have made any difference, neither does renaming the files. The files are being downloaded by a shellscript directly onto the iTunes server, not via NFS.

I can’t see any obvious differences in the files, but the ones downloaded by the script won’t play in iTunes (despite being picked up by mt-daapd), while others in my music collection will. I can’t see any differences in the permissions or ownership, so I’m baffled as to why they won’t play from the server itself.

Do you know if iTunes/daap is fussy about file permissions or ownership in some way?

If it makes any difference, I’m running mt-daapd 0.2.4 (with the recent iTunes fix) on Debian Sarge for Cobalt MIPS architecture (mipsel-pc-linux-gnu).

Many thanks again,
