After a night of searching and finding nothing that could help me, I reach out to the experts.
I run into a problem with the mp3 scanning when I try to start mt-daapd. This is my output:
# mt-daapd -f
Starting with debuglevel 2
Starting rendezvous daemon

I can view the DAAP server via another computer, but, obviously, there are no songs in it.
I use Ubuntu Feisty and have full ability to play mp3s in rhythmbox if these relate (gstreamer0.8-plugins).
Anybody have an idea what the problem is?2nd June 2007 at 11:40 am #10998fizzeParticipant
are you sure your avahi-daemon is running?
The port is already in use, so maybe you are restarting an instance of mt-daapd, or have other DAAP servers running (banshee, rhythmbox?)
Other than that, mt-daapd runs as nobody/nobody. So make sure that user has read access to the mp3 files, and read & execute to the directory tree beneath your music_dir 😉2nd June 2007 at 12:07 pm #10999zk4lifeParticipant
YES! Rhythmbox was running daap. This has fixed my problem! Thank you very much. I have turned it off, and life is good.
