You need root permissions to run init scripts on most unix-oid OSes I know.
It’s definetly the case for Debian/Ubuntu.
Yes, modify the init-script accordingly.
If you cant figure that out, you can always use symlinks or even hardlinks to the file. Hardlinks only work on the same partition and type, while symlinks work across all devices.
Check the firefly wiki.
You need to use a software called mDNSproxy iirc.
Multicast packages don’t go through a ssh-tunnel.12th July 2009 at 1:57 pm in reply to: Can’t see playlists when using NAS drive for iTunes #18634
Just copy the iTunes.xml over to the NAS 😉
Bonjour always shows as disabled, so thats alrighty.
Regards from sunny New York 🙂
Well, you could technically set up a smart playlist, but thats cumbersome.
Either create a preset on the soundbridge itself, or just create a static (m3u, pls, …) playlist instead.
You probably have firefly picking up the dot-apple-double files.
There’s an option in the config to have firefly ignore these.
Of course there is the folder called admin-root.
Just read mt-daapds config file mt-daapd.conf and see the path there.
I’ve got an N810 too, and using fireplay is ok, but not staggering. I wish canola2 had DAAP support… 😉
You need to do a full rescan.
That purges deleted files and playlists.
iirc you can also delete playlists in the web ui, or using the java client?
I think a full rescan also clears out the playlists created with the java client…
If the RSP share is indeed acting up, you can disable it by removing the rsp plugin.
It’s located in the plugin_dir and called rsp.so or rsp.dll iirc.
that’s all right, because the RoKu unit will see a DAAP (iTunes) share, and then also the RCP (roku control protocol) share.
Performance usually isa bit better when using RCP. Other than that there shouldn’t be any differences.
Well #1 probably is due to file or folder permissions.
Firefly usually runs as “nobody” in the group “nogroup”, and the music files need to be accesible to that user or group. If that’s not the case then firefly simply doesn’t “see” the files.
So check your permissions.
Regarding #2, that is an avahi issue, iirc.
The PCH certainly should have enough processing power.
The question is whether all required libraries etc. are available.
Incidentially, I’m thinking of getting one of these. When I’ve got one I’ll be sure to tinker with firefly on it 😉13th June 2009 at 6:24 am in reply to: Is it possible to add songs to playlists over DAAP? #18608
Don’t think the DAAP protocol supports that.
It’s possible using RSP though, and the java fireflyclient.
On windows firefly installs itself as a service, that means it’s started regardless of any user logging on.
On Macs (and Unix-oid systems) you want to use an init script to have it start automatically when the machine boots.
I’m no Mac expert, but http://wiki.fireflymediaserver.org/Mac_Installation should have all the necessary steps.
Well, the database is created under the runas user. And only this user has write permission to this file.
So if you change the runas user, it can’t access the database. Thus you get the error.
You generally shouldn’t change the runas user. If you still have to, delete the database file and let it create a new one.
