    Hi

    I’ve been having a few problems but regret I cant solve on my own. I hope my 1st post isn’t stoopid but likely is. I cant find an exact answer with search but have what might be pointers..

    running:
    mt-daapd/Firefly Version: svn-1696-1.
    Server Operating System: linksys NSLU2 unslung 6.8 (running off a flash memory stick and files on 1 x fat32 formatted WD USB HD,
    I can browse the mp3s via windows and via SSH to the slug, fine.)
    Web interface: not got that far recently.

    If I execute firefly with /opt/etc/init.d/S60mt-daapd it seems to exit immediately. ps doesnt list mt-daapd at all.

    whats odd is I can’t recently successfully run Firefly, twonkyvision or ushare. I had firefly running before, but it no longer works. Firefly’s what I really need to work. I suspect I’ve messed up something with permissions or users -I always ssh in as root btw, yes, sorry -but I dont know how to fix the problem.

    I’ve tried to reinstall it and got this error:

    # ipkg install -force-overwrite mt-daapd
    Package mt-daapd (svn-1696-1) installed in root is up to date.
    Configuring mysql
    //usr/lib/ipkg/info/mysql.postinst: /opt/bin/mysql_install_db: No such file or directory
    //usr/lib/ipkg/info/mysql.postinst: /opt/etc/init.d/S70mysqld: No such file or directory
    postinst script returned status 127
    ERROR: mysql.postinst returned 127
    Nothing to be done

    ipkg install sqlite2 returns saying up to date, nothing to be done.

    there doesnt seem to be a /var/log/mt-daapd.log.

    using tail -100 /var/log/messages I see this:

    what do I need to do?

    thanks in advance, any pointers are welcome.

    I think there may be a file that’s ticking it of. Try changing your debuglevel in the config file to 5, then starting it again. Let is run until it crashes, and check your logs. Likely it dies trying to scan a specific file. Move that file out of the way, and try again.

    Hi

    Thanks for the reply, sorry it took me song long to reply myself šŸ˜‰

    I think I’ve found a problem with the slug anyway, which is that it was running out of memory. I run the unslung firmware from a memory stick and I’ve cleared off a few programs and at least now my upnp server runs.

    firefly doesnt – yet. I’ve uninstalled it, trying to re-install it before running with the verbose reporting. However, the current error, on install (ipkg install mt-daapd) is:

    Configuring mysql
    //usr/lib/ipkg/info/mysql.postinst: /opt/bin/mysql_install_db: No such file or directory
    //usr/lib/ipkg/info/mysql.postinst: /opt/etc/init.d/S70mysqld: No such file or directory
    postinst script returned status 127
    ERROR: mysql.postinst returned 127

    Then on trying to execute firefly with /opt/etc/init.d/S60mt-daapd it stil fails to execute. How significant is the above install error, before I get to grips with the extra level of reporting?

    thanks for your time with this, cheers again, Iain

    Hi there firefly does not use mysql, so that shouldn’t stop the mt-daapd service starting.

    Have you tried running it in foreground mode ?

    /opt/sbin/mt-daapd -d 9 -f -c /opt/var/mt-daapd.conf

    I ran that using.. part of what you said, as the rest of the string I corrected (& seems correct) for my NSLU2: I used

    /opt/sbin/mt-daapd -d 9 -f -c /opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf

    (previously I’d always run it by /opt/etc/init.d/S60mt-daapd)

    thoughts? Thanks again, Iain

    svn-1696 is hideous in the slug with sqlite2.

    Upgrade to sqlite3, or downgrade to another nightly version.
    Since your DB is new, you can just change the db backend in mt-daapd.conf to sqlite3, and do a

    ipkg install sqlite3

    sometime šŸ˜‰

    Hi

    I’ve only just got round to fixing this.

    I ended up removing the usb drive from the slug, reformatting it, unslinging and re-installing – and now it all works a treat. evne with sqlite2. at the moment šŸ™‚

    However, stupidly, I cant see that bd line to force it to sqlite 3 in the conf file! is is an option, and if so whats the syntax?

    Thanks for the help all,

    thanks again, iain

    it’s the one called “db_type”.

    change it from “sqlite” to “sqlite3”
