When starting the airfoilspeakes program and trying to connect with airfoil from a mac the airfoilspeakers crashed.
The *.dll files comming with the package (*.de or *.tar.gz) should be replaced with the libraries from http://kevin.colyar.net/2009/12/fixin...
Thanks Kevin !!!
If you are replacing the libraries in /usr/lib/airfoilspeakers you should do it as root.
The libraries to replace are:
Solution tested on ubuntu 10.10 running in 64 bits.
Good luck ;)

Found this fix before on Kevin's blog. To be fair, it DOES fix the crash-on-connect.
For some reason though, it appears to connect but never plays any sound out of any of the interfaces (HDMI audio, surround sound, nothing).
Driving me a bit mental at this point honestly, as the ALSA speaker-test utility seems to work fine, PulseAudio sees the ALSA Mono plug-in (and is maxed on volume in the GUI mixer), and so on.
Starting with 'DISPLAY=:0 airfoilspeakers --gui=false --debug 4 > logfile_test.txt' and using a tail -f logfile_test.txt shows that it's getting sync headers and seems to think it's playing, just isn't actually putting anything out.
Like I said, maddening.
