    I had an airtime 1.8.2 automatic [sudo apt-get] install running on my Debian 6.0 computer which I couldn't get to stream correctly (which I posted about earlier). I tried uninstalling it unsuccessfully using apt-get remove and then got it back up using apt-get update.

    At this point I did a manual upgrade to 1.9.0 which seemed to install perfectly and I overwrote all of the config files so the install should be default.

    Airtime-check-system runs successfully [system setup looks ok] but it still says that my airtime version is 1.8.2 even though the web interface says 1.9.0.

    My problem:
    When I upload files in the web interface they do not show up in the playlist builder.

    When I run airtime-import --storage-dir-get i get 'None'
    when I run airtime-import --storage-dir-set (or any other airtime-import option) i get 'Unable to connect to Airtime Server'

    Any help is greatly appreciated, I would be happy to post any logs of config files.

    thanks,
    Alex

    Hi Alex -
    You should never install manually after installing debian packages, you will
    mess up your system. We are going to put code in the manual install to
    prevent this from happening in the future. The best thing to do right now
    is to uninstall the debian package (as it is still installed on your
    system), uninstall the 1.9.0 version, backup your config files and then
    erase the originals, and then either reinstall 1.8.2 with the debian package
    or 1.9.0 manually. But once you go one way, stick with that way. You
    cannot mix and match.
    - Paul

    Thanks for the quick response paul.

    should I start with:
    sudo apt-get remove airtime

    and then run
    cd ~/airtime-1.9.0/minimal_install
    sudo ./airtime-uninstall

    and then try to reinstall from there?
    reformatting the system is an option I would like to avoid due to the amount of work that went into setting up the RAID drivers.

    Thanks,
    Alex
  • Yes you can run those commands at that order

    For the record

    once you run sudo apt-get remove airtime
    (which ran with no errors)

    I run ~/airtime/minimal_install/airtime_uninstall
    and get 'Airtime 1.9.0 is not installed, cannot uninstall'

    Do I need to run
    sudo apt-get autoremove
    to remove the debian packages
    before trying to reinstall airtime manually?

    what other files should I need to delete before trying to reinstall manually?

    Thanks
    Alex

    Ok, you should be fine then. The only other thing is the old media storage
    directory. If you dont have anything in it worth keeping, you should remove
    it (the directory is "/srv/airtime").

    Then run the 1.9 install.

    - Paul

  • by your previous error, please make sure the Apache configuration file
    (/etc/apache/sites-available) is pointing to the right folder.
    airtime 1.9 default is /var/www/airtime

    Firstly, thanks again for the great responses.

    Secondly,got everything removed and reinstalled airtime 1.9.0 (manually). [You don't need to run sudo apt-get autoremove before re-installing]

    The install script runs currectly ending with the check system which says:
    liquidsoap engine looks to be continually restarting.
    [protocols.external:3] couldn't find "ufetch"
    [protocols.external:3] found "usr/bin/wget"

    I will hit the FAQs but if you have any immediate suggestions they would be greatly appreciated as always.

    Thanks,
    Alex
  • Hi Alex,
    I know it might sound tedious but now that you've installed Airtime 1.9 manually, please try to run a successful uninstall of airtime 1.9 (sudo ./airtime-uninstall)
    remove /etc/airtime
    and then run another installation of Airtime 1.9
    (sudo ./airtime-install)

    Since you only un-install version 1.8.2 and not 1.9, your system was not properly reverted to the pre-installed state.

    ok so
    ./airtime-uninstall
    sudo rm -rf /srv/airtime/
    sudo rm -rf /etc/airtime/
    ./airtime-install

    .... same thing.
    liquidsoap engine looks to be continually restarting.
    [protocols.external:3] couldn't find "ufetch"
    [protocols.external:3] found "usr/bin/wget"
    also alittle later
    [dynamic.loader:2] Could not load plugins in directory /usr/local/lib/liquidsoap/1.0.0-beta2/plugins.

    Thanks!
    Alex



  • ok we'll need to get the full liquidsoap log and the full output of the installation process.

    I don't believe those errors are the source of the problem you're experiencing but we need more info.
