    On dapper svn-1463:

    I still have a folder on NTFS called /MP3’s/ I’m having trouble adding this folder (probably due to the ‘ ). Does anybody know how I can fix this?

    I’m hoping to get a new disk soon, so I can change the name of this folder in ext3.

    In German, we call this Deppenapostroph since many use this ‘ for building the plural.

    Guess in English it’s getting incorrect more and more as well… so why don’t you jsut rename the folder to its correct form MP3s? ๐Ÿ˜† (or is there any special reason you can’t rename it currently? If it’s just about NTFS, some kind of live CD with NTFS writing enabled (or even a BartPE CD) may suffice if its just that you don’t have any Windows installed currently).

    (and yes, I’m allowed to make fun of it, I’m not really better since I made the same mistake when creating the smart playlist wizard ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

    Also, you have to know about the infamous Deppen Leerzeichen ๐Ÿ˜€

    Normally in UNIX ‘special’ characters are handled with a preceding (backslash) character. this is the escape character, and the character after this is not treated ‘special’.

    In UNIX in most shells the ‘ character includes a command that is executed by the shell, and its output is being inserted in the current expression.

    most famous is prolly something like:

    apt-get install gcc_'uname'*

    Ugh. Can you mount it utf-8? Or make your mp3 dir a folder up?

    I can’t ‘make’ anything of it. The folder resides on an ntfs-disk and I can’t change anything about it (or else risking corrupting everything).

    But, I’ll keep everything on hold for a couple more weeks when I get my new disks (holliday madness huh)

    Yeah, I got that. But can you set your mp3_dir to a folder just above that.

    Like rather than /mnt/ntfs/MP3’s, use /mnt/ntfs?

    ^ oh yeah, I tried that, didn’t work. I get a “Error: 500general:mp3_dir”

    #8024

    dreamer

    btw, the dir is

    /media/hda3/Muziek/MP3’s/

    or

    /media/hda3/Muziek/ which gives the 500 error.

    ok, I now changed permissions on /media/ and it will accept the folder in the config, but when I scan for files I get:

    $ sudo mt-daapd -f start

    ok, can you set the debuglevel to 9 ?
    This will give a real verbosive log output ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I don’t know what it is, but it’s actually working now ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Hmm, maybe this should get it’s own topic but:

    The server seems to shut down after about half an hour. I just checked the webinterface (which is kind of my way of telling if it’s on) and it was just gone.

    Again, the log file would help on this.

    Check the web interface — that’s where the logfile is specified.
