Reply To: FreeBSD svn-1586 error: "Error opening db:


You were right about permissions being the sql issue, and now that database is working, THANKS!

I am running svn-1586 because it is more stable than svn-1696. I’ve been running a Linkstation for about 18 months with svn-1586. I could not get it to run reliably with svn-1696 and Ron Pedde suggested that I fall back to svn-1586 and since then that Linkstation has been the most super reliable box of any kind that I have ever had.

On another note, mt-daapd is still not able to read the plugins. I checked many times that they are in the specified directory and they are where expected. In the “/usr/local/share/mt-daapd/plugins” directory are the following files:

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root daapd 139190 Mar 6 17:12 libout-daap.a
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root daapd 97030 Mar 6 17:12
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root daapd 68392 Mar 6 17:12 librsp.a
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root daapd 48379 Mar 6 17:12
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root daapd 20940 Mar 6 17:12 libssc-script.a
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root daapd 19991 Mar 6 17:12
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root daapd 922 Mar 6 17:12
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root daapd 892 Mar 6 17:12
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root daapd 934 Mar 6 17:12

The only thing that I can think of is that perhaps some plugins may be missing? Does that make sense? I also changed some of the permissions adding “execute” to a few that didn’t have that level of permission in the event that was the issue.

Also, the server is running and I can display the web page but it does not show up in iTunes. This server has had Netatalk and Howl installed for some time well before the mt-daapd project and does successfully advertise afp shares to our Mac’s. Is there some kind of conflict that can possibly be occurring?
