    I’ve been trying to install the Firefly media server so I can connect with my Macbook(iTunes 7.3.1, Mac OSX 10.4.10) to the music on my Ubuntu server(7.04, Server Edition).

    I’ve installed the mt-daapd_0.9-svn-1586_feisty_i386.deb and resolved all dependencies.

    The processes are running as far as I know


    [email protected]:/$ ps aux | grep "daap"
    mt-daapd 3987 0.0 0.4 3484 1072 ? S 18:52 0:00 /usr/sbin/mt-daapd
    mt-daapd 3988 0.1 2.9 18476 7228 ? Sl 18:52 0:01 /usr/sbin/mt-daapd

    And


    [email protected]:/$ ps aux | grep "avahi"
    avahi 3835 0.0 0.5 2808 1408 ? Ss 18:52 0:00 avahi-daemon: running [Aethra.local]
    avahi 3836 0.0 0.1 2668 468 ? Ss 18:52 0:00 avahi-daemon: chroot helper
    uruviel 4218 0.0 0.3 2880 748 pts/0 R+ 19:07 0:00 grep avahi

    Still my iTunes won’t see the share.

    Killing all the mt-daapd processes and running the deamon in the foreground returns:

    [email protected]:/$ sudo killall mt-daapd
    [email protected]:/$ sudo mt-daapd -f

    Starting web server from /usr/share/mt-daapd/admin-root on port 3689

    Serving 4287 songs. Startup complete in 1 seconds

    The webadmin page(http://192.168.1.8:3689) shows that Bonjour is not running, but I can’t turn it on either. That might be the problem, althoug it should work over just the http port right?

    Does anyone have an idea?

    I recently re-installed my mt-daapd, using Debian apt-get, to the stable version, 0.2.4+r1376-1. [Actually, I had to re-install Debian on my Kurobox system.]

    My mt-daapd server is not visible from iTunes running under windows. On the Firefly status page, the Bonjour service shows up as “stopped”, and there is no way to start it from this page.

    Prior to this re-install, I had installed mt-daapd 0.2.4 from the source, if that matters, and was able to see the server from the same version of iTunes running on that same windows box.

    The avahi daemon is running, and just to be sure it started first, I restarted mt-daapd.

    What am I missing?

    OK, Nevermind my post [but don’t igore the original poster].

    Somehow I managed to view my mt-daapd server in iTunes.
    I’m not sure what was the fix, but along the way I

    • restarted both systems (the client and server machines),
    • installed SQLite0,
    • realized the warning against SQLite3 in the FAQ found on the wiki is out of date
      [http://wiki.mt-daapd.org/index.php?title=FAQ&Itemid=60#I_have_SQLite_3.x_is_installed.2C_but_mt-daapd_crashed_out_with_a_segfault_error], so I…
    • uninstalled SQLite0

    Also, judging from Ron’s comments in other posts, the admin page will say that Bonjour is stopped even though it may be running.

    Going back to /etc/init.d and invoking “mt-daapd start”, causes 4 mt- daapd processes to be launched.

    That’s normal. With linuxthreads, you get a process-per-thread. They are clone()’d though, so they are pretty lightweight. As light as a thread on a “normal” system.

    The bonjour thing is a known bug. It shows not running, but it is.

    As far as it not showing up, this seems to be a recurring feisty issue, but I don’t have a good answer for why. Clearly avahi is already running, and the app is running, but the multicast isn’t working.

    What avahi version do you have?
