    I’m using the latest version for mt-daapd on my debian system. I can successfully get my server recognized on iTunes 7 on my macbook but there are only a handful of songs that are showing up out of my library – in no particular order.

    Here is a sample of how the persmissions are set on a particular music folder. Something I’m doing wrong? Can’t find any diffs between the files that show and those that do not.

    Or maybe it’s not a persmissions issue at all. I have several thousands of songs but only maybe 100 show up.

    /mnt/raid/share/music is my root music location defined in the mt-daapd.conf file.

    titan:/mnt/raid/share/music# ls -la Genesis/

    You need r-x on those directories. The “x” permission on directories is permission to descend into the directory.

    Without it, the server can’t look in the directory to see what’s there. Check your /bin directory — that’s why it’s drwxr-xr-x — so you can see the files in there.

    a “find . -type d -exec chmod a+x {} ;” from the top of the music dir ought to do it.

    Man thanks Ron! I ended up doing a ‘chmod -R 755 *’ and it worked. Chug chug goes my disk updating mt-daapd. Thanks!
