    I’ve been having issues with having my meta data (Ratings) and Smart Playlists (the ones created in iTunes) display from my Firefly server. My Firefly server is version “svn-1586” running on a Power PC Linkstation under FreeLink 1.1. I’ve got the 2.6 kernel installed as well. My Library is compiled and maintained on an Apple iMac G4 running Leopard. I sync the iTunes library with Chronosync.

    First Chronosync was giving the error: “The operation failed because the user does not have the correct access to the file or folder” for the files”:

    /Volumes/shared-1/iTunes Library
    /Volumes/shared-1/iTunes Music Library.xml

    This directory “shared-1” does not show in the finder but if I log on with the Terminal as root I can see it. Does anyone understand what this “shared-1” directory is all about? In the Finder I am using the standard “Music” folder which does not show as this “shared-1” directory. After using sftp to copy the above 2 files to the Linkstation I can now see my meta data as well as my Smart Playlists. I also changed the permission of these 2 files to 777 in frustration. I’ve since run Chronosync and it errors with the same error except the 2 files mentioned earlier now have a “0” in front of them i.e.:

    “The operation failed because the user does not have the correct access to the file or folder” for the files”:

    /Volumes/shared-1/0iTunes Library
    /Volumes/shared-1/0iTunes Music Library.xml
    and now a new file:
    /Volumes/shared-1/0.DS_Store

    Does anyone know what the same file name with this “0” in front is all about?

    Thanks…

    Not sure. Is it possible this is a chronosync bug?

    Is it possible to use rsync? I use something like this:


    rsync -av --delete -e ssh "/Users/ron/Music/iTunes/" [email protected]:/share/hdd/data/music/iTunes

    And then kick it off periodically with Lingon.

    Works For Me. ™

    Ron,

    I tried rsync and got this error:

    rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes read so far)
    rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(189)

    Any clue what I am doing wrong?

    Thanks…

    Perhaps rsync isnt’ installed on the remote server (or not in a directory on he path), or perhaps you have something in your .bashrc printing something (fortune, maybe?) in non-interactive shells.

    Just guesses.
