After running flawlessly for about 2 months, mt-daapd has been crashing more and more frequently. As of now, it is crashing approx 15 mins after I start it. I’m running it on debian etch.

The cannot allocate memory line seems to be present every time it crashes. Does anyone know why this is happening? Thanks

Not to be glib, but running out of memory would be my guess. 🙂 Can’t help myself, sorry. 🙂

What version is this? If it’s svns in the 1300 or so range, it could be memory leak if you are scanning iTunes xml files. After you’ve spooled some music, what does memory utilization look like? Are you sure it’s mt-daapd running our of memory, or is it something else, and it’s just mt-daapd getting hit with the oom killer?

Is this 0.2.4 on a resnet or something with high utilization? And how many songs do you have? If it’s 0.2.4, is compression turned on?

All these might help figure it out.
