    Hello.

    I tried to compile a nightly release (1586) and the configuration process gives me the following message :

    Must use either –enable-sqlite or –enable-sqlite3

    What is the difference ?

    Moreover, I read the following FAQ :

    http://wiki.mt-daapd.org/wiki/FAQ#Using_the_SQLite-based_nightlies.2C_I_am_unable_to_compile_from_source_What_could_be_the_problem.3F

    So do I have to install the version 2 ou 3 … or 1 ?

    OK, it is written 2 in the FAQ, but –enable-sqlite and –enable-sqlite3 make me asking.

    Heh, sorry. At one point, there was only sqlite. It was at version 2.8 or whatever, and there *was* no sqlite 3. So there was an –enable-sqlite option. Then there was the sqlite 3.x line that was api incompatible with sqlite 2.x. So I ended up with –enable-sqlite3.

    So right now it’s in the confusing situation that –enable-sqlite is sqlite2, and –enable-sqlite3 is sqlite3.

    If you are trying to choose between the two, try 3. It’s faster, and I think I will probably soon start shipping with sqlite3 as the default rather than sqlite 2.

    OK, thanks Ron.

    Can someone update the wiki ? I can do it, if you want.

    Actually the wiki is now here http://wiki.fireflymediaserver.org I think everything has been pulled off and pretty much updated from the old wiki, so I’ll move the links on the www site.

    The page that discusses it is here: http://wiki.fireflymediaserver.org/Configure_Options
