After testing the beta 6.0.6740 on ubuntu i can say this.
it looks nice =) sadly it didn't work awesome, after adding sources the service slows down extremely, its basically impossible to change from exempel setting to home.
i'm guessing is a memory problem since it slow doin after adding sources?
i can't make it start playing any of my media and after every reboot i get error 503 (service doesn't exist) ( guessing database problem?)
i did a couple of installs to see if this was a error on the install but i'm getting the same problem on every install i did. (did a complete remove off the old installation)
In a couple off the installations i can't log in again after adding a new password to admin and signing out,
(guessing this is connected to the 503 problem withe the database) If my memory serves me correct i think subsonic had a problem like this on a earlier build.
i have only been able to test this very little since i get this errors, but if you get this working it will be very nice.
i did look for the imdb integration but didn't find it, that would be a very nice touch to have.
And if you could make the user get info and imdb raiting about the movie when you click on it (like in Kodie) it would be awesome.
Server its testet on is a supermicro server ,16 core opteron using 64gig of ram running ubuntu.
