Sort of fixed it. I had installed sqlite, but not sqlite3 😳

Now though, there’s another problem. I purged mt-daapd and reinstalled it. Then, I got a:

Starting with debuglevel 2
Starting rendezvous daemon
*** WARNING *** The programme 'mt-daapd' uses the HOWL compatiblity layer of Avahi.

Error opening db: Misc SQL Error: unable to open database file
Stopping signal handler
Got shutdown signal. Notifying daap server.

I then tried changing from sqlite3 to sqlite.

Now one thing I did do before was to delete /var/cache/mt-daapd. See, the purge (using

aptitude purge mt-daapd

) didn’t delete it (it complained it wasn’t empty, or something like that). Should I have not done that?
