    …saying:

    2007-11-19 07:09:25 (49534c08): Error: unable to open database file
    2007-11-19 07:09:25: Aborting

    When I start it again it starts fine. So what can be so wrong about the database file that it cannot open it?

    I have tried deleting the database file, but that didn’t help.

    Appears to be a bug in the windows port. Right now I’m working on re-doing the database, so we’ll see if that helps. Hopefully done by the end of the eekend.

    Hi,

    I’m running Firefly Service 1.0 svn-1359
    on a WinXP system, SP2, WMP11. My music is on my F: (second physical HDD)

    Every so often, Firefly shuts down. Log says “Error: unable to open database file”.

    If I restart it manually, I am good for some amount of time, maybe a day, maybe a few hours. Then it dies again.

    Help?

    OK, I downloaded latest nightly build, we’ll see how it goes.

    After limitless tries I finally found the below thread
    http://forums.fireflymediaserver.org/viewtopic.php?p=17598

    Suggests to kill or even rename the Synology indexing process, as follows:

    Ron said

    Ah, the hup thing. yeah. On non-nptl pthreads machines (or maybe it’s ulibc machines, not sure) a sighup makes it crash. The thing is, the synology has a disk indexer that indexes any new media on the file system, and then HUPs mt-daapd to make it reindex. Sadly, that makes it die.

    The workaround is to kill the synology indexer thing.

    and then SydneyGuy suggested

    What I did to get around the dreaded HUP problem was to rename /usr/syno/bin/synoindex to synoindex.old

    It’s a heavy handed approach but it stopped the damned indexing and the HUP problems haven’t been seen since.

    Will try now, and let you know if it worked.

    NB – feels pretty lonely here, being the only one to reply to my own replies … 🙄

    UPDATE:

    – renaming the synoindex to synoindex.old was the final cure;

    – after a major update from the Synology firmware 0590 to 0637, firefly did not work at all (maybe I messed around with it too much 😉 )

    – finally, I reinstalled lately the old firefly/mt-daapd server svn-1696 using the instruction from jchris below. Now the DS-207+ runs on the 0637 firmware flawlessly.

    Good luck to you all!
