Sorry for the late reply. I’ve been pretty busy and I had some problems with my partitions that led me to re-install completely my system.
So here’s what I did for Ubuntu 6.10:
– Install all the packages that Firefly needs (do not forget sqlite…), build-essential, libahavi-client-dev, libavahi-compat-libdnssd1 (not sure if this is actually required).
– edit /etc/default/avahi-daemon: AVAHI_DAEMON_START = 1
– In System > Administration > Services: enable Mulitcast Service DNS Discovery
# apt-get update
# apt-get upgrade
# cd /usr/local/src/
# wget http://nightlies.mt-daapd.org/dl.php?FILE=mt-daapd-svn-1489.tar.gz
# tar zxvf mt-daapd-svn-1489.tar.gz
# cd /usr/local/src/mt-daapd-svn-1489
# ./configure –prefix=/usr –sysconfdir=/etc –enable-sqlite –enable-oggvorbis –enable-flac –enable-avahi
# make install
# cp /usr/local/src/mt-daapd-svn-1489/contrib/mt-daapd.conf /etc/
– edit your /etc/mt-daapd.conf
# update-rc.d mt-daapd defaults
– edit /etc/rc.local and add: mt-daapd start
TA-DAH! It works, and it starts all by itself 🙂
Well… OK, I still have a (small) problem. Firefly works fine, I can see the music in iTunes on a Windows PC and in Banshee on my system. But for some reason I can’t see anything in Rhythmbox. That’s too bad, cause I prefer it.
… Any ideas? 🙂
