Reply To: mt-daapd nightlies on Synology DS 101j

I installed the latest nightlies on my optwared DS101j, installation seems to work fine, edited the conf file and the web interface works.
The interface shows 144 songs shared, no problems there.
The only problem is, that neither i-tunes nor my Pinnacle Soundbrige can view the server.

That isn’t so good.

When I run a “ps” on my DS I see four tasks with mt-daap, is that normal?

Yes — non nptl threads (linuxthreads) run 1 thread per process, so it shows up as four processes. They are light processes — they share the same memory, so the memory use isn’t as ugly as it looks, but it does show up each thread in a ps.

So yeah, normal.

There should be one process with different memory info — that would be the mdns responder, which is responsible for advertising in iTunes. So you should see 3 with the same memory use, and one with considerably less. The considerably less one is the mdns responder.

I tried the corss comiled mt-daapd from the ipkg list and that one worked without a problem, but is not running with my Pinnacle Soundbridge.

Hrm. Then it’s not a networking problem or anything. You say you *can* see the web interface?

Do you get anything in the syslog (/var/log/messages)?

You might also try to run it from the command line and see what it comes up with:

/opt/sbin/mt-daapd -d9 -f -c /opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf

See if there is any helpful info there.

Have you installed any other mdns stuff? Howl or avahi specifically?

I was not able to start the S60 File in init.d, I had to use bash or sh to start it.
Does that ring any bell? 😕

Might check that it’s executable (chmod +x /opt/init.d/S60mt-daapd)

There is some stuff to check anyway.
