Share appears, but songs never load

Asked by Brian J. Cohen

I have a Mac on my network with an openly-shared library. When I fire up Rhythmbox, I can see my share listed along the left-hand side. When I click (or double-click, doesn't mater) on it, the status-bar reads "Retrieving songs from music share" but it just sits there infinitely; the songs from the remote library never appear in Rhythmbox. This is with Rhythmbox 0.10.0 on Feisty, 7.04.

I assume you're using iTunes 7. You can't access you're shares with Rhythmbox/Avahi then. You may downgrade to iTunes 6 or wait for the "Firefly Media Server" ( to support Mac OSX.
