Comment 1 Alex Lancaster 2006-01-10 08:27:35 UTC
This easily fixed, need to add --enable-daap to the %configure in the spec file,
current version 1.37 doesn't include it:


Is it possible to do a rebuild?

Comment 2 Alex Lancaster 2006-01-21 01:40:53 UTC
Ping, any chance of a rebuild with DAAP enabled?  I noticed that rhythmbox was
recently rebuilt with iPod support.

Comment 3 Alex Lancaster 2006-01-21 01:58:44 UTC
Hmm, I just realised that rhythmbox in Rawhide may be being built with gstreamer
0.10, if so, DAAP doesn't work with rhythmbox 0.9.2 and gstreamer 0.10, but it
is the process of being ported. See:


However there is a good chance that it will be fixed by 0.9.3.

Comment 4 Alex Lancaster 2006-01-24 14:08:35 UTC
DAAP discovery is about to go gold in rhythmbox CVS:


and since you seem to be building CVS snapshots of rhythmbox for rawhide in any
case, any chance you could add --enable-daap to the spec file and rebuild for
rawhide so we could do some testing before the next test release?

Would be a nice feature for FC5... ;-)

Comment 5 Alex Lancaster 2006-01-24 14:11:49 UTC
Btw,  DAAP works with gstreamer 0.10 now, with this change (which is now in the
rawhide package):

2006-01-21  Jonathan Matthew  <jonathan@kaolin.hn.org>

        * configure.ac: Don't disable DAAP with gstreamer 0.10

        * daapsharing/rb-daap-src.c: (_do_init), (rb_daap_src_base_init),
        (rb_daap_src_class_init), (rb_daap_src_init),
        (rb_daap_src_finalize), (rb_daap_src_set_property),
        (rb_daap_src_get_property), (rb_daap_src_write),
        (rb_daap_src_read), (_expect_char), (rb_daap_src_read_chunk_size),
        (_split_uri), (rb_daap_src_open):
        * daapsharing/rb-daap-src.h:
        Mostly fix seeking, handle chunked transfer encoding, and port to
        gstreamer 0.10.

        * player/rb-player-gst.c:
        * sources/rb-daap-source.c: (start_browsing), (stop_browsing):
        Remove rb_daap_src_initialize and rb_daap_src_shutdown.

        Fixes bugs #326738 and #318852, and brings #309609 one step closer to
        being fixed.

Comment 6 John (J5) Palmieri 2006-01-24 14:49:41 UTC
Reassigning to caillon who is working on rhythmbox packaging right now.

Comment 7 Alex Lancaster 2006-02-02 17:04:00 UTC
Appears to be fixed in latest Rawhide with rhythmbox-0.9.3-2.  I can now browse
remote shares.

In the 0.9.3 version of rhythmbox DAAP is enabled by default if the correct
dependencies are found.
