Any ideas what the problem is? Do I need to install the stable version before installing the nightly?

I installed on a Maxtor MSS and will be using this (eventually) with a Roku Soundbridge M1000

The problem is in the startup script (/opt/etc/init.d/S60-mt-daapd).

It’s looking for a command named pidof, which is usually part of busybox. You might try ipkg installing busybox and see if that gives you a pidof command in /opt/bin. If so, then try the script again. If it still doesn’t work, try changing the line in the S60mt-daapd script from “pidof mt-daapd” to “/opt/bin/pidof mt-daapd” (or whatever).

Sounds like it’s just a startup script problem.

You can manually start the server with something like:

/opt/sbin/mt-daapd -c /opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf

and it should start up.
