    Here is the FireFly log with the debuglevel set to 5:

    Also, what source did you install from, and which package?

    I installed the mt-daapd package from Ubuntu’s universe repository. Here is what I used to get started if it helps. http://www.ubuntugeek.com/howto-setup-itunes-compatible-media-server-in-ubuntu.html

    How about if you try

    http://localhost:3689/rsp/info

    from your Ububtu box ?

    do you see anything like

    00031551.0svn-1696slug Music

    and then from your other machine

    http://192.168.1.102:3689/rsp/info

    ?

    That all seems about right.
    Very weird indeed. Can you do a:

    ps aux|grep avahi

    ?

    I guess something’s wrong with your avahi, maybe you have two instances running, or some other zeroconf daemon. ๐Ÿ™„

    OK i have it working now. It turns out that there was a conflict with the mDNS responders. I started mt-daapd with the -m switch to disable the internal mDNS daemon and avahi-browse –all started showing FireFly.

    I also had to add the following file to /etc/avahi/services




    Daap

    _daap._tcp
    3689

    After doing this FireFly started showing up in iTunes. Thanks for the help with getting this fixed!

    Awesome. So I guess someone packaged the wrong firefly binary.
    mDNS shouldn’t be even compiled in for ubuntu.
    Also, avahi support should work automagically.

    Anyway, glad this is resolved. Might be important for future reference. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    OK, now I am at a total loss. The library was showing up in iTunes all day long but now it doesn’t show up anymore. Nothing changed on either the server or the client since it was working.

    Here is the output from ps aux|grep avahi

    1000 2463 0.0 0.0 2976 752 pts/1 R+ 07:12 0:00 grep avahi
    avahi 18018 0.0 0.1 2732 1516 ? Ss Mar06 0:00 avahi-daemon: running [psanders1-Paul.local]
    avahi 18019 0.0 0.0 2732 460 ? Ss Mar06 0:00 avahi-daemon: chroot helper

    The output from browsing to the …/rsp/info page shows the same thing on both computers:

    Do you use static IPs? DHCP release/renew could be the culprit here.

    My router is using DHCP but none of the ip addresses have changed. I know almost nothing about DHCP, is there something else to it that could be causing the problem?

    Dont use small DHCP timeouts, if you are on a mostly-static environment ๐Ÿ˜‰

    But the effects that you describe have been discussed and solved in this forum. IIRC, DHCP was the culprit in many cases. YYMV though.

    I was having the same problem as the original poster and it was driving me mad.

    I just fixed it, and for me it was a question of running:

    sudo /etc/init.d/mt-daapd restart

    I had tried restarting firefly numerous times and I’d rebooted the whole server too, but the crucial difference is that I did it as root

    I’m not sure why when my server reboots the script isn’t run as root though, can anyone shed some light?

    I’m running ubuntu
    Thanks,

    Lou

    I tried to turn off DHCP and that didn’t work. I also tried running

    sudo /etc/init.d/mt-daapd restart 

    but that didn’t work for me either.

    I had a problem that looked like this — recently updated my Ubuntu “Hardy” machine, and iTunes on my mac mini wasn’t seeing the firefly share any longer.

    What I did was go onto the Ubuntu machine, check to see if avahi-daemon was running:

    $ sudo /etc/init.d/avahi-daemon status

    Saw that it wasn’t so started it:

    $ sudo /etc/init.d/avahi-daemon start

    Then restarted mt-daapd:

    $ sudo /etc/init.d/mt-daapd restart

    After doing this, the share showed up in iTunes.

    I tried this also but no luck. I recently rebuilt the server box (because I was turning it into a pure server with no desktop, not because of this problem) and everything is working fine now. I still have no idea what was going on before.
