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

Right, but if the debian package was installed cleanly, it would have given you a config that used the right sql backend.

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?

Package should have done that already, but you can:

mkdir /var/cache/mt-daapd
chown nobody /var/cache/mt-daapd

and it should start.
