I'm not sure if it was the last update or the one before, but sometime somewhat recently Subsonic refuses to index any accented characters (ó, ö, æ, á, ü etc). I have gone to the Subsonic forum and have made sure to set everything to export LOCALE=en_US.utf8 as suggested, but no change. Even having it rebuild the index didn't work. The files show fine in the terminal (The disk is XFS) and the files play fine in mplayer. Not sure if I'm missing something. I know that they used to be there and play fine.
Any ideas? Apologies if this should be posted elsewhere.

The packager don't have to choose the jre implementation unless there is incompatibility ... So the 'java-runtime' meta-package is here for that ! please change jre to java-runtime.

Why not make this depend on openjdk6 instead of jre? From subsonic installation's page one might assume (see the different linux installation instructions at that openjdk6 works fine. And openjdk6 is the recommended java implementation in Arch...

The new /var/subsonic/ has the JAVA_HOME variable set and so subsonic wasn't starting for me after the upgrade from 4.4 to 4.5. Well, more specifically, the new was JAVA_HOME variable pointed to /opt/java , but that wasn't correct for my system. I had to change it to /opt/java/jre to get the process to start.

is there a way to get this to run as a non-root user?

Thanks for this, works fine.
It seemed content with ffmpeg, but I had to symlink lame.
ln -sf /usr/bin/lame /var/subsonic/transcode/lame

Worked great.

also, it seems that lame and ffmpeg should be present in $SUBSONIC_HOME/transcode
maybe you could add those symlinks to the package ?

missing deps, ffmpeg and lame.
