After a great deal of searching for a pre-compiled package of svn-1586 for Ubuntu 8.04 and without any success I’m asking if anyone knows where such a package may be located. When I install the latest svn-1696 it crashes in short order. When I compile svn-1586 it will not display in iTunes. It’s a vicious circle. I am thinking there may be some kind of conflict where the ubuntu computer where I am running 8.04 also had Netatalk and Avahi already running and displaying shares to our Mac’s on our home network when I went to install Firefly. Perhaps this is why when I compile svn-1586 it runs and displays in a web browser however it does not show up in iTunes.
I guess you are correct in that I didn’t have a “service” file for daap so in /etc/avahi/services I created daap.service with the following content:
Now the server shows up in iTunes but when I click on it it immediately disappears. I have to restart avahi services for it to show up again then again it immediately disappears when I click on it. I guess we’re getting closer. I copied the above content for the daap.service file from a post elsewhere. I assume there is something incorrect in the above file, any clues?
