    I had only 15 min of playtime to look around, but 2 things I noticed…

    1. mt-daapd.conf file gets blown away on ipkg remove then ipkg install
    I had it backed up so no big deal, but others might not…
    2. on config webpage the filename is cut off.
    Another no big deal, but thought you should know.

    I will continue messing around and reporting if I see anything.

    Sorry for the dumb newbie question re Firefly on the NSLU2…

    I have only just started using mine with Firefly (ie svn-1236 is the first build of it I have installed); is it necessary/recommended to do the ipkg remove then ipkg install for new nightly builds, or does an ipkg install of a local *.ipk file work like an intelligent in-place upgrade (as the Win32 installer for Firefly does)?

    If you *do* need to remove-then-install with the nightly builds on an NSLU2, once Firefly 1.0 is officially released (and available via the automatic ipkg mechanism), will ipkg upgrade then work for an in-place update?

    That’s fixed in svn

    2. on config webpage the filename is cut off.

    Oh, the config filename being the same color as background? I’ve seen that but I don’t know if it’s been fixed. Let me know if you see anything else.

    You can install right over the top. It should Do The Right Thing ™. Might want to go into the web config every once in a while and see if there are any new configuration knobs you want to turn, though, as they will show up there set to default values.

    OK,
    I have firefly on my nslu2 renamed to A&C Music. When I load iTunes on my laptop it shows the firefly server as NAS1(which is the name of my NAS) Firefly Server. This is the same as what I see on my ROKU. When I highlight the NAS1 FireflyServer in iTunes it loads all of my music and then renames the NAS1 to A&C Music. Any thoughts?

    Sounds like it didn’t stop gracefully and the old rendezvous name was still out on the network. It will disappear.
