The biggest problems with Moore's law and the power of PC's these days is that compilation time is constantly decreasing.

Amongst the fanfare of the Apple iMac range overhaul I didn't initially catch that the Mac Mini has also been upgraded! I've been waiting for this for a long time so I can use one as a front end for my MythTV system.
Not only have the processors and RAM been upgraded (Core 2 Duo 1.83 or 2.0 GHz, 1Gig RAM) but the price has come down too.
Now is the right time to buy.
Unfortunately, the version of Firefly in the Ubuntu repositories is a little old and stopped working for me when I recently upgraded my iTunes. Upgrading it wasn't as easy as normal in Ubuntu so I thought I'd list the steps I took:
Now reconfigure Firefly. There's probably a much better workaround than deleting the config files and the database but Firefly is so easy to set up that it's not worth figuring it out!
Thankfully, I can now, once again, play my music through iTunes from my Ubuntu server.
