    There are other things that can be done from here, like running it in the background and stuff, but this is where to start.

    Once you get to this point, I can guide you toward the rest of it.

    Ron,

    Maybe this got buried in the noise, but what’s the next step in getting the software fully installed and running in the background, etc. What other things can be done as you suggest.

    Also, any progress on being able to play Internet Streams from iTunes? I’m downloading and compiling nightlies when they come available but haven’t seen this one added in yet..

    Thanks,

    Jon

    Ack. Sorry.

    grab this zip file.

    Now run through the configure like you did before, only this time to –prefix=/usr/local

    Then do a:

    make; sudo make install

    That should build and install it to /usr/local/sbin, etc.

    Unpack the zipfile, and copy the file stuff to the layout it’s in /Library/StartupItems, etc.

    Follow the instructions at the top of the ‘mt-daapd’ script — put

    MTDAAPDSERVER=-YES- in /etc/hostconfig

    Once you have that, edit the config file in /usr/local/etc/mt-daapd.conf to your hearts content, and reboot. You should be in business.

    Also, any progress on being able to play Internet Streams from iTunes? I’m downloading and compiling nightlies when they come available but haven’t seen this one added in yet..

    I’m going to try and get it in the next nightly.

    OK, Ron,

    I went throught and did as you said. I’ve got everything in place. When I first put everything in place and reboot, I get a security error when OS X comes back up. It asks me if I want to fix the permissions or security settings of mt-daapd in /Library/StartupItems. I click on Fix. It does something and then asks you to reboot the system.

    After rebooting, mt-daapd does not start up.

    Why?

    Do I need to do a chmod on the files? If so what settings on which files?

    Thanks,

    Jon

    It already did that, that was the message.

    Did you do this part:

    MTDAAPDSERVER=-YES- in /etc/hostconfig

    OK. I just saw my problem. I had MTDAAPSERVER and not MTDAAPDSERVER.

    Stupid me! 😡

    Sorry to bother you… 🙁

    Look for an official osx build today or tomorrow complete with a preference panel and whatnot.

    Looks nice. Thanks on that to MikeK at Roku.

    Cool! I see that.

    Is there a way to compile and use the nightly updates with the Roku release? Or should I stay in Unix land if I want that?

    Also, has the ability to do streams in the iTunes library been added?

    Once I integrate Mike’s code, and automate the build process, I’ll be releasing packages as part of nightlies.

    Streaming stuff is on my short list, but it hasn’t been knocked out yet. It will by the next rc.
