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.
Thanks…15th March 2009 at 8:21 pm #18110
Which configure-options did you use?
Obviously you should enable avahi-support.
packages are always located under http://nightlies.fireflymediaserver.org for instance.15th March 2009 at 11:17 pm #18111
Thanks for taking a look at things for me. I used the following to compile svn-1586:
./configure -prefix=/usr –enable-sqlite3 –enable-avahi
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Configure flags look alright.
Did you add firefly to the avahid.conf IIRC?
Because otherwise avahi doesn’t really know about it, and thus doesn’t advertise it. Which seems consistent with your reports.17th March 2009 at 5:27 pm #18113
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?

Which NIC does your server have? Maybe you have the same problem like me:
