Hi,

I have SlimServer and mt-daapd (the iTunes server) running on the same box,
but I'm unable to get the two to talk to eachother. What do I need to add to
the iTunes section of the SlimServer settings? I've flagged the option to
automatically find the iTunes library, but this does not work, and manually
specifying the location of the library fails too. Also, I am unable to clear
the location box - when I do so and click to save it gives me an error.

Any help much appreciated!

cheers,

bub.

SlimServer doesn't 'talk' to iTunes at all, it just reads the iTunes xml
library file.

Sounds like it could be a simple permissions problem - does your
SlimServer user have access to the iTunes library XML file?

I'd enable the d_itunes logging and retry these steps to see what is
logged.

I did a bit of reading on mt-daapd - as far as I can tell it doesn't
have an equivalent to the iTunes XML library, if so it's not going to
work with SlimServer.
Although it probably could be supported with a plugin if someone was to
write one...
