I restarted my mac mini today, from linux to mac-osX.
That restart was enough to finish it off. the hard-disk is deader then death.
But after putting a hard-disk from an old external hddcase into the mac mini I had it running again and I found out that mpd (and even snapshots from svn) are now available in mac-ports.
In other news, gmpc now has an itunes like tag browser, it’s completely configurable. I didn’t wanted to write it, but the tag editor wasn’t used allot and this was requested many times.
