Reply To: mt-daapd Automatic Startup Upon Ubuntu Startup [solved]



regarding /bin/sh, no.

Just do a

sudo rm /bin/sh
sudo ln -s /bin/sh /bin/bash

There were some changes made to Ubuntu 6.10, one of which changed the default shell from bash to dash. so some scripts stopped working. This can be VERY tricky. Dash is supposedly faster, but breaks compatibility.
Some compile / make scripts for instance, just dont work without doing the above step. If you want to reverse it, just do

sudo rm /bin/sh
sudo ln -s /bin/sh /bin/dash

anytime 😉

Do you have music sharing enabled in Rhtythmbox?
To see any daaap/iTunes shares, use the “Zeroconf Service Discovery” applet (if you run gnome, its deffo there). That will list all services, like iTunes servers, and so on. It also depends on avahi-daemon. So just make sure that daemon is running.
