After a few problems in edit, build and install on the other box. I now
have one installation from 8 Dec (2422) and one from today (2442)
In the new one I get *two* warning popups with big red crosses when a
menu screen is displayed; one is steady, one flashes. The FE log shows
that it's repeatedly trying to connect, with no address defined for
host: localhost. Tries at 1 sec intervals continue indefinitely,
although the popups are hidden during playback.
I do, however, now have a ZM Settings entry. Changing the IP
(originally 127.0.0.1, I've tried localhost, 192.168.0.3 and ::1:)
and/or port (originally 6548, tried -1) has no effect on the popups, and
the log still shows 'Failure to connect to (::1:6548) Connection
refused.' This doesn't suggest to me that it hasn't found a missing ZM.
The plugin (both boxes) is at
with all the other libXX.so plugins - and I know mytharchive gets found :-)
