    Hi,

    does anybody see the config page (which should be reworked according to the release notes) with 1082? I don’t see anything with ie and ff.

    I also get an error messag in the log sometimes about a spinner.gif file, which isn’t existing, neither in installation dirs nor the tar file.

    Also note hte two slashes.

    cannot resolve /usr/local/share/mt-daapd/admin-root//spinner.gif

    We are talking linux here.

    BR,
    Carsten.

    That would all be my fault…
    The config page has a minor glitch. If you have an empty admin_pw it just won’t show. This is fixed in r1084, but for now locate your mt-daapd.conf and set a password:

     admin_pw = p

    I forgot to include the spinner.gif in the subversion repo. It was added in r1083, it is only used on the experimental plalist.html page.

    The double slash is just a log issue, if the file is present it will be fetched all right. The request is GET /spinner.gif HTTP/1.1 blabla and when it is missing it is displayed as //spinner in the log.

    /a

    edit: found the //spinder.gif problem
    edit: spelling

    Hi,

    I don’t have an empty password. Also, I tred to figure out what that svn stuff is and downloaded new versions of makefile.am and config.js 15 minutes ago together with spinner.gif.

    With this constellation, spinner.gif will also not be copied during install. But even when I do that manually, it still doesn’t work for me.

    I will try the next “official” release, unless you need me for tests right now. I am sitting a bit bored in my office 😳

    BR,
    Carsten.

    If you’re up for it:
    In Firefox install this extension http://www.joehewitt.com/software/firebug/
    Then enable it from the Tools|FireBug menu. Press F12 to get the console. On the Debugger tab there is a menu options. Check the option “Break on errors”.

    If everything works as it should it will stop 6 times for errors when the prototype.js library uses exceptions to test the browser for functionality. Just press the play button to let the browser run to the next error.
    The first 6 error should look something like this:

    function() {return new ActiveXObject('Msxml2.XMLHTTP')}

    Could you post the line (or PM me) where error #7 occurs.

    (Or just wait for another nightly 🙂

    OK, for installing firebug I had to upgrade to Firefox 1.5 (honestly, I didn’t know that it was still 1.0). With 1.5.0.3 it works.

    The “normal” browser we use here is ie 6.0.2800.1106CO with SP1 and sone other updates. With this, it won’t show up. As I am not sure about this version, I suggest we wait for me coming home or other reports before we debug deeper into it.

    Thanks Anders, I will now try to configure a bit. It’s a bit painfull tunneled through SSH (with putty) to connect to my home server. Currently I see that not all config entries are read and displayed, e.g. database type and scan type show up, but e.g. mp3 directory not.

    EDIT: I see, it’s a GUI mockup. Forget the last paragraph…

    Actually with IE if you have tried previous nightlies, try to clear the IE chache. Some of the earlier Firefly nightlies didn’t have the “prevent IE caching” workaround.

    My IE on XP with all updates works like a charm. Haven’t tried with IE on win2k/ME/98 though.

    No, it doesn’t work here. I will try at home.

    Thanks,

    Same thing for me here: mt-daapd-1082 on NSLU2 with admin_pw set:

    almost empty config page with either:
    IE 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301-1519
    or
    Mozilla Firefox 1.5.0.3

    …both time cache cleared beforehand.

    Firebug stops two times at “ActiveXObject”s, then a third time on line 35:


    34 parseXML: function(xmlDoc) {
    35 $A(xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName('section')).each(function (section) {

    The resulting HTML contains:


    ...

    Configuration





    This is still in beta, but it seems to work. Go ahead and give it a spin.









    Tried this also with a plain vanilla config-file as distributed, resulted in same (nearly) blank config page.

    Any ideas?

    Nevertheless, keep up the superb work,
    all the best,

    Somehow your browser doesn’t retrieve config.xml from the Firefly server. Would you be able to check the permissions on and the existence of config.xml in the admin-root directory on your NSLU2?

    The config.html page will make 3 calls to the server when the page loads. Each call will result in 2 ActiveXObject errors. (6 errors in total for a successful config.html load)

    The html snipped you get is just what is on the page before the script writes the config stuff into it.

    Woohoo, that’s it: somehow the config.xml didn’t make it into the .ipk-package.
    After adding it manually from sources to the admin-root directory it (nearly) works as expected including the 6 Firebug errors 🙂

    Unfortunately the config-page gets confused again when I switch on my favourite VariousArtists-Compilation-setting by adding the following code to my mt-daapd.conf:

    [scanning]
    concat compilations = 1

    Maybe this setting can be honored by the config-page in an upcoming release.

    Best wishes from Germany,
    Nico

    I will add all missing options to config.xml, it is just a miscommunication between Ron and me. I also added a bug to handle future cases of bad communication 🙂 http://trac.mt-daapd.org/index.cgi/ticket/118

    Hi,

    the config page is not displayed at all in Safari and Firefox on Mac OS X (http://www.biama.de/config.png). In Safari the status page is nearly empty (http://www.biama.de/safari.png) and the refresh does not work but it seems to work in Firefox (http://www.biama.de/firefox.png).

    Regards,
    Marc

    Nope, actually it was probably a lack of communication. I though I knew what I was doing and I bet Ron also thought I knew what I was doing, but it turned out I had missed a bunch of options that should go into the config.
    Will add them in the next commit.

    About the Safari issues. I don’t have any Mac friends to test stuff on. But I’ll see what I can do.
