    I installed Leopard a couple weeks ago and all has been working fine with Firefly until last night…

    I decided to update to the latest nightly as I’d not updated my Firefly install in a long, long time. So I downloaded the latest nightly and installed it. Now, when I start the server, it never completes starting. I literally let it run overnight and it never starts.

    I’ve had some permissions problems with my migration to Leopard but I’ve gone in and made sure that everyone has r/w access to anything to do with Firefly (in /Library/PreferencePanes and in ~/Library/ApplicationSupport/Firefly).

    It never finishes starting. Here’s a copy of my log file…

    Yeah, the bonjour part isn’t working right for some reason. Haven’t gotten a chance to look closely at it though. Not sure exactly what’s up with it.

    So what’s a good build to use instead?

    The 1.1 beta sticked on the roku thread seems to work:

    http://forums.rokulabs.com, in the firefly forum. I haven’t tested 1586 yet, but I suspect it probably works. I think there is something wrong with my build machine, though, because the bonjour works on one I’ve built locally on a leopard machine, so something is screwy.

    Just haven’t run it down yet.

    The newest build I’ve been able to get to work is 1659. However, it shows up in the control panel as 1586…

    I installed build 1586. I started firefly, and the Preferences box still shows it as “Firefly is starting” but the server appears to have started – it read my iTunes directory and a brand new playlist and is playing fine on my SoundBridge M1000.

    I think I’ve got the fix in svn. At least, it’s working on mine now. Hopefully next version will be good.

    When will it make it to the “nightlies” site?

    As soon as it compiles again. I’ve broke it a bit working on playlists… Hoped to have it done by the weekend, but not quite there yet.

    Ron,

    Do you have this fix in yet? My Soundbridges don’t even see Firefly even though it’s “running.”

    Well, sorta. I mean it’s in svn, and works, but I’m still working on the database.

    It’s running, but dang, it needs some optimization. And I was really hoping that the memory based playlists would be a lot faster. Turns out not so much. :/

    Ron,

    Any updates on this? I’m dead in the water right now with Firefly. OS X sees it in Bonjour but the Soundbridges do not – so something is wrong. I’d like to get that new build with the fixes in it…

    Well, the last version that should work is 1380.

    The roku 1.1b should work:

    1.1b works – thanks.

    I’ll use that until you release the next SVN.

    Might want to hold off longer than that. This next one is probably going to be a bit… well… experimental. I’d guess I’ll be dropping them pretty quickly for fixes once I get the first one out the door.
