Hi, I installed the nightlies.

What version? The stable, using 0.2.4, or the nightlies?

I ran ps auxw, but I dont know the process name that I should be looking for.



You are looking for something called “mt-daapd”. Should be either two of them, if it’s still scanning for music, or four of them if it’s running and ready to serve music.

You can edit /opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf and set the debuglevel to 9, and set the logfile to a path on your hard drive. Then start it, and see what the log says.

Another way to do nearly the same thing would be to run it like this:

# /opt/sbin/mt-daapd -d9 -f -m -c /opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf

If it dies, it should leave a message on the screen describing why.
