    SlugOS is 3.10

    Was all working happily with uNSLUng, but (long story short) now running SlugOS instead. Almost ready to give up, eat crow and revert to uNSLUng now.

    Install went fine. Log files report nothing scary. Shows up as a shared library in iTunes. But when I click on the library, the highlight hangs there for maybe one second, then falls back to the default “Music” library.

    ps tells me there are two mt-daapd tasks running, rather than the usual four. I have been carefully through the config file. The web interfaces tells me that all the hundreds of songs were found.

    Connection is Slug to ethernet switch, to which the laptop is also connected. No routers in the way, nothing fancy at all. Windows firewall on the laptop has been switched off.

    What did I miss? Or is SlugOS just the wrong platform for me?



    I’m having the exact same problem, also on SlugOS/BE. Anyone have any idea what is happening to the other tasks?

    Here’s an excerpt from mt-daapd.log after iTunes tries to read from the library and fails:
    1999-12-01 01:12:56: Starting rendezvous daemon

    1999-12-01 01:36:31: Aborting

    It seems the daap server task is not running? Help!



    Hi Kevin

    Sorry to report I got no feedback on this and eventually just gave up. Reverted to uNSLUng. Everything just worked. I’ll probably end up leaving it there, and nabbing another Slug to do everything else.
