    howdy. i’ve been downloading the occasional nightly and going through the OSX upgrade routine: mount dmg, click “quit firefly”, click “uninstall firefly”, click “firefly.prefpane.” simple, painless, no problem.

    except… every time i’ve done it since svn-1586, it hasn’t stuck. when i relaunch firefly via the prefpane, my log shows

    mt-daapd[2866]: Firefly Version svn-1586: Starting with debuglevel 2

    i’ve gone through and manually deleted the prefpane in the system folder, as well as the firefly directory in my application support folder, to no effect. i’ve even tried a “find / -name mt-daapd”, but it looks like it’s not actually called that, but something else inside the prefpane/frameworks folder.

    (pardon my lack of correct mac jargon, i started with mt-daapd on linux and still don’t have my OSX chops up to speed.)

    anyway, so my question is twofold:

    – where else in in the OS could mt-daapd/firefly be hiding?

    – or (unlikely, to be sure) am i running the latest version, but the build string hasn’t been updated?

    thanks!

    More likely, my build process is broken for osx. I won’t be able to take a look at it until Friday, though.

    great, thanks!

    (and, that being the case, i’ll save another possible bug report until after i know which version i’m actually using!)

    It is indeed broken. I’ve verified the breakage, and will have it fixed tomorrow, with a new nightly, once I’ve fixed the stuttering flac issue on windows.

    I have a different but possibly related problem – every build after 1586 hangs (never finished starting) after I start install and start Firefly (PPC Mac mini with OS X 10.4.10). Build 1586 fires up just fine. Could it be that the build process for the Mac is still broken? I haven’t made a fuss previously since 1586 works fine, but having seen this thread I did wonder if there could still be a problem?

    I was missing a shared library, but I think I fixed in the latest latest one. I’ll double check. It’s kinda hard for me to test, as I only have one ppc machine, and it has all the libraries and stuff already via fink. :/

    OK – thanks. 1673 was still “broken” but I’ll take a look when you post the next build and let you know how it looks. Cheers, John

    Hello Ron,

    I had the same problem again with 1676. I re-ran the startup with debug level 9 and will e-mail you the zipped file of the first several minutes of the start-up. Maybe it’s something at my end, but if you could take a look I would really appreciate it!

    Thanks, John

    I had the same problem again with 1676.

    1676 worked fine over here – no hang on intial startup like earlier mac versions (though I just made a big jump from a 15xx build to 1676 on my mac instance – I’m not referring to the slug build)

    Hello Ron,

    I restarted the 1676 build this evening – after 1 hr it still hadn’t completed the startup or enabled the web browser access. The trace looks like it thought the startup took about 2 minutes, but the firefly pane of the system prefs thought it was still starting… At 20:29 hrs I ran the “quit firefly” script and reinstalled build 1586.

    Below is the level zero debug trace:

    Okay. Didn’t show up on the network, like in iTunes though?

    Correct – it doesn’t appear in the network – neither my Roku Soundbridge nor iTunes on my other Macs can see it and it doesn’t appear in Bonjour in Safari.

    Build 1586 appears in all these about 1-2 minutes after starting.

    So does this — after two minutes it says it’s registered the multicast addresses. Wonder what’s different?

    Ron,
    when I switch from one version to the other I am doing that by running the “quit firefly” script and the then clicking on the new firefly preferences pane to install it. Is that right or were there some changes between the builds which mean that I need to run the uninstall script or even manually delete some files between 1586 and 1676?
    ciao John
