Firefly not starting...

Sat Dec 08, 2007 12:57 am

Hi Guys,

I've been trying to get Firefly to start and never seem to get past the "Firefly is Starting" message. After reading some posts I thought I would try the beta version to see if this helps and guess what - no joy.

If anyone could help me it would be great, one thing to remember is that I'm new to Mac (a couple of months in) and am still getting to grips with how it works. I'm running OS X on 10.4.10 and I've pasted the log file below to see if anyone could help me:

2007-12-08 07:34:42 (a000d000): Starting with debuglevel 2

2007-12-08 07:37:27 (a000d000): Serving 9631 songs. Startup complete in 165 seconds

Further to this I have just gone into the preferences and gone into Sharing and ticked "Personal File Sharing" and gone into Firewall and selected "iTunes Music Sharing" as well. No idea if this is relevant but I'm clutching at straws to get this working. No change to making it work though...

Thanks in advance for your help & comments!

A common cause for this is that the sharing name is long in the firefly prefs. Try something short, like "firefly".

I had tried to truncate it if it's too long, but I apparently haven't found what the correct limit is. :/

Hi Ron,

Thanks for the tip. I shortened the names and it connected. All I need to do now is to work out why my Soundbridge can see but not connect.

Thanks again!
