I followed the instructions in the original post on a fresh LinkStation Live (fw v2.10, telnet enabled).

mtdaapd quits shortly after startup with the following output to /var/log/mt-daapd.log:

Any suggestion on how to troubleshoot this?

The best troubleshooting is to up the log level to 9 and see what it does. It looks very possible that the cause of this is a corrupt database though. I’d probably start with stopping hte server and deleting the songs.db (or songs3.db) and any .journal files in the db directory, then starting it again. If it still keeps dying, then set a log file in the config and up the debuglevel to 9 and see what that shows.

Yell if that doesnt’ make sense.
