Ron,

I decided I should help myself and learn to build from source. Used 0.2.4.1 stable. I thought I had everything working, the compile and install looked OK. Setup the configuration files, the rc.d setup, etc. But when I start it, I get:

Starting DAAP server: execvp: No such file or directory

The OS is ClarkConnect 4.2 (CentOS4 / RHEL 4). Any idea what I did wrong? I’m sooooooooo close.

Thanks!

Check the file in rc.d (mt-daapd?) At some point it tries to run the binary, probably with something like:

/usr/sbin/mt-daapd $OPTIONS

or something.

Check that the mt-daapd binary is really *in* /usr/sbin/mt-daapd. If you didn’t compile with “–prefix=/usr”, then it’s probably in /usr/local/sbin instead.

Might be easier just to re-run the config with “–prefix=/usr”.
