    I built svn-1206 on FC5 thusly:

    ./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-sqlite3
    make install

    Here’s my config file:

    web_root	/usr/share/mt-daapd/admin-root
    port = 3689
    admin_pw = blahblah
    db_type = sqlite3
    db_parms = /var/cache/mt-daapd
    mp3_dir = /home/share
    servername = Dave's mt-daapd
    runas = nobody
    playlist = /etc/mt-daapd.playlist
    extensions = .mp3,.m4a,.m4p,.wav,.flac
    ssc_codectypes = ogg,flac,alac
    ssc_prog = /usr/bin/mt-daapd-ssc.sh
    logfile = /var/log/mt-daapd.log
    process_m3u = 1
    scan_type = 2

    I ran mt-daapd like so:

    # /usr/sbin/mt-daapd -f
    setting dest to 1
    setting dest to 5
    Starting with debuglevel 1
    Starting rendezvous daemon
    Couldn't lookup user = nobody
    Couldn't lookup user = nobody
    Error in drop_privs: Success
    Aborting
    #

    Ack! Do I have a nobody?


    # grep nobody /etc/passwd
    nobody:x:99:99:Nobody:/:/sbin/nologin

    Of course I do. What is the real problem here?

    you are missing the section header:


    [general]
    web_root /usr/share/mt-daapd/admin-root
    port = 3689
    admin_pw = blahblah
    ...

    Don’t forget the [general] section header. Also, you are missing the = after web_root.
