Reply To: mt-daapd Automatic Startup Upon Ubuntu Startup [solved]

Ron,

Thank you for taking the time to help me.

I installed Firefly (SVN 1463) from a Tarball. I should also have said that I use Ubuntu 6.10.

So, I tried this command

[email protected]:~$ sudo update-rc.d mt-daapd defaults

It seemed to work (the output was “added to startup script” or something like that). I restarted Ubuntu but mt-daapd didn’t start automatically. And now, if I start it in the terminal, it doesn’t work either (I get no error message).

Edit: I un-installed completely Firefly (including configuration files), re-installed and entered the same command: mt-daapd doesn’t automatically start upon Ubuntu startup, but can be started manually.

I didn’t find any error or anything related to mt-daapd in the logs (but I’m really not an expert) and if I enter once again the command, it outputs: “System startup links for /etc/init.d/mt-daapd already exist.”

Any ideas? 😕
