Going back to /etc/init.d and invoking “mt-daapd start”, causes 4 mt-daapd processes to be launched.
That’s normal. With linuxthreads, you get a process-per-thread. They are clone()’d though, so they are pretty lightweight. As light as a thread on a “normal” system.
So 4 is okay. But “socket is in use” means something else is listening on the socket. So maybe you already *had* it running and tried to start another copy. Or maybe you have something else already listening on that port (built-in media center program or something?)
