    Songbird, desktop media player mashed-up with the Web

    Hi,

    some weeks ago, I decided to package Songbird.
    Since that, I've been maintaining it in my PPA. In order to get it in Intrepid, we (the Ubuntu MozillaTeam) would like to, among other things, make it use our xulrunner-1.9 SDK package, but it requires some real efforts, and we have so many things to do.

    In the meantime, preview packages live in my PPA.
    Feedbacks welcome. Needless to say it's meant to evolve a lot, it's still pretty raw on my side.

    (I'll bump it to 0.6 later this week, i.e. when upstream will have the branch tagged properly)

    I tried Songbird a while back and rather liked it. That was in my early days of Ubuntu I'll give it another go

    The latest version of songbird rocks!!, it works sweet in ubuntu 8.04.
    I started with songbird when i Used XP (not very proud about de MS part) but it was so much faster than Itunes or WinAmp

    Songbird for Intrepid within your ppa looks broken to me....

    ----------------------

    Thunderbird 3 is also broken, crash boom bang > seg fault , nightly build works ok.




    PS Songbird cannot beat Exaile...but I must test it. "Mozilla freak".. DS

    Songbird is gradually improving. It has good potential. I haven't tried it since 0.4. I read a positive review on 0.6, I will try it once again.

    I'm running it in Hardy ATM - i386 version. I'll try it in Intrepid (AMD64) later.

    I was not very impressed by the earlier version , I'll give this one a try as soon as the AMD64 version for intrepid is available .
    if it ain't broke you haven't tweaked it enough

    a little bit of information would help. What is broken? anything in the error console?

    same thing, logs ? gdb stack ?

    both works fine for me, intrepid i386 & amd64.
