I could solve the problem with the package libavahi-client-dev using aptitude as follows. I hope I did not break something else with this solution
All other steps I could do according the first post from dakku.
Volumio 1.2 (VolumioBeta12CuboxI.img) - new clean flash
root@CuBox-i:~# apt-get install libavahi-client-dev

Now I have a new version of shairport, that finally also offers the option -w
[code]root@CuBox-i:/usr/local/bin# shairport -h
Usage: shairport [options…]
or: shairport [options…] – [audio output-specific options]
Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.
-h, --help show this help
-p, --port=PORT set RTSP listening port
-a, --name=NAME set advertised name
-k, --password=PW require password to stream audio
-b FILL set how full the buffer must be before audio output
starts. This value is in frames; default 220
-d, --daemon fork (daemonise). The PID of the child process is
written to stdout, unless a pidfile is used.
-P, --pidfile=FILE write daemon’s pid to FILE on startup.
Has no effect if -d is not specified
-l, --log=FILE redirect shairport’s standard output to FILE
If --error is not specified, it also redirects
error output to FILE
-e, --error=FILE redirect shairport’s standard error output to FILE
-B, --on-start=COMMAND run a shell command when playback begins
-E, --on-stop=COMMAND run a shell command when playback ends
-w, --wait-cmd block while the shell command(s) run
-o, --output=BACKEND select audio output method
-m, --mdns=BACKEND force the use of BACKEND to advertise the service
if no mdns provider is specified,
shairport tries them all until one works.
Available mDNS backends:
Available audio outputs:
Options for output alsa:
-d output-device set the output device [default*|…]
-t mixer-type set the mixer type [software*|hardware]
-m mixer-device set the mixer device [‘output-device’|…]
-c mixer-control set the mixer control [Master|…]
-i mixer-index set the mixer index [0*|…]
*) default option
Options for output ao:
-d driver set the output driver
-o name=value set an arbitrary ao option
-i id shorthand for -o id=
-n name shorthand for -o dev= -o dsp=
Options for output dummy:
There are no options for dummy audio.
Options for output pipe:
pipe takes 1 argument: the name of the FIFO to write to.[/code]
I can start shairport manually using the script
and play audio from my iPhone 4S iOS7.
I will try to modify the script using the option -w and will also test if shairport starts after reboot.
