I’ve successfully built mt-daapd on Solaris, with prefix=/usr/local. So far, so good!
Granted, gotta do some modifications to the configuration file, but it is looking for a folder /etc/init.d/functions. Where should this be? What is it?
Or is it simply an empty folder which I should create and reference?
Thanks in advance. Lou
That’s a redhat thing… it has the stuff for that.
Generally, to start it, start it with -c /path/to/conf/file”, and kill it with something like:
kill -TERM `cat /var/run/mt-daapd.pid`
That is, send a SIGTERM to the process in the pidfile.
You’ll want to wrap that in regular solaris init.d scripts — I don’t have any or know how the work particularly, so I might suggest modifying one of your existing startup scripts as a way to generate a startup script for it.
