Default rhythmbox automatic discovery of daap shares

Rhythmbox 0.9.6 in etch automagic finds mt-daapd running on my lenny nas
box, it displays and plays the music and playlists served beautifully.


Rhythmbox 0.11.6 in lenny doesn't, if I manually enter the relevant ip
and port info it plays fine but it's a pain to have to manually enter
that every time.


Does anyone know of a way to persuade the newer version to behave more
like the old, either my search is weak today or no one's even mentioned
this regression, one thing my searching did turn up is that Rhythmbox
doesn't display local shares from the same user, but the etch desktop,
lenny desktop and lenny Nas box are all psychically separate PCs updated
half an hour ago.


Thanks.

Sorry to respond to myself, bad form Bla Bla etc etc...

I've done some more digging, there's a mention in this thread
http://mail.gnome.org/archives/rhythmbox-devel/2006-January/msg00055.html
that DAAP doesn't work with gstreamer 0.10 but as etch uses 0.10.10 and
lenny 0.10.19 and DAAP works fine on my etch boxes I don't know if
that's it, there are also some old threads from 2005 on problems with
DAAP on AMD64bit architecture, which I am using but I suspect those
issues have been resolved as

a: 64bit is so prevalent now and
b: DAAP actually works fine, it the discovery that doesn't.

Then in November 2006 on the Rhythmbox news page it adds as a feature
for the 0.11.3 release

"Allow DAAP shares to be connected to manually"
http://www.gnome.org/projects/rhythmbox/news.html
But it doesn't mention automatic discovery of DAAP shares anywhere.

As per this bug
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=488075
I've tried disabling ipv6 in /etc/avahi-daemon.conf on my server to no
avail, I don't think it's the same thing anyway as I don't use ipv6 yet.


One other thing I've seen mentioned in the Ubuntu forms of enabling
"automatic service discovery" in the General tab of the Network settings
dialog box but Debian has no such option.


This is a bit of a pain as the fact that my daap server is just there on
etch is supper cool and helps the WAF, SWMBOs not a great one for typing
in IP addresses every time she wants to listen to some choons.


Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

the mt-daapd box is a dual P!!! lenny server and
the lenny desktop box is
AMD Athlon(tm) Dual Core Processor 4850e
Linux M3A78-EM0x 2.6.26-1-amd64 #1 SMP

Just to respond to my-self again, I just put lenny on my 32bit AthlonXP
desktop and it does find the

DAAP server and plays the files served fine.

For testing and debugging purposes I also put mt-daapd on one of my
lenny AMD64bit machines, Rhythmbox on my 32bit lenny and etch boxen now
see and play from both the daap servers no problem however when I start
Rhythmbox on one of the other AMD64 boxes the 64bit mt-daap server
vanishes form the network with this in the log

as you can see 2 PCs were accessing the share simultaneously xx24.111 is
a 32bit etch box and xx24.103 is a 32bit lenny box, the mt-daap daemon
doesn't crash and if nothing's accessing it when the 64bit Rhythmbox is
started neither does it disappear form the network.


the 32bit mt-daap server is more robust and doesn't vanish even if you
are using it when the 64bit Rhythmbox is started, but in none of the
permutations I've tried does the 64bit Rhythmbox discover either of the
daap shares.


I don't know weather this is a problem with mt-daap (doubt it) or
rhythmbox (more likely)
