Reply To: No config page on web interface – Firefly running perfectly

After, turning off the slug over Christmas, I came back to find that Firefly had crashed. I reinstalled, but once again the config file doesn’t display on the web interface or when editing with vi.

# vi /opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf

And that is all that is shown when attempting to edit. If I access the config file throught the NSLU2 interface, I can see the whole file, but when I attempt to edit it in vi, or view the firefly web interface – nothing.

As you’ll see above, I’ve had the same problem before, but no combination of deleting old config files, and re-installing seems to work.


I believe this is from trying to use the built-in telnet rather than putty to get to your slug. Try using putty. Or else you are have a bad TERM variable, or missing termcap, or something strange like that.

Are you out of disk space? It seems like you might be out of disk space on the /opt partition, or perhaps in /tmp. Are you booting from a flash drive?
