    😥 I seem to have run into a problem with mt-daapd/firefly running on my NSLU2. The log shows:
    …Current database version:8
    …Initializing database
    …Rendezvous socket closed (daap server crashed?) Aborting.
    …Aborting
    and the output of running /opt/sbin/mt-daapd shows “gdbm fatal: write error”

    I’ve upgraded the software on the NSLU2 using ipkg, but usually keep my old configuration files, as I’ve been burned before with my customized setting/locations being lost.

    Any ideas of why mt-daapd is crashing? My NSLU2 has been shut off for a couple of months, after moving it from a direct ethernet connect to my router to a connect to a Buffalo Internet Convertor (multiport access point). Once I moved it, my Roku Sound Bridge M1000 no longer saw it, but iTunes running on my eMac does. But now that mt-daapd isn’t running on the NSLU, its missing from everywhere.

    BTW, my NSLU2 is V2.3R63-uNSLUng-6.8-beta
    and the version of mt-daapd is v0.2.4-2

    I would suggest you get the nighty version 1586 and install that one … It works fine for me and a lot of people here. Just download the package and do a ipkg install of the package.

    You can obtain those ‘nightlies’ from http://nightlies.mt-daapd.org/ 😉

    Oh, and besides, you have to trash your configuration file and let it overwrite by the ipkg installer.
    The config file options changed a lot since 0.2.4 so thats absolutely necessary.

    As recommened by others, nightlies is probably better. If you don’t want to tackle that though, I’d suspect your database is corrupt. Delete it and restart (/var/cache/mt-daapd/songs.gdb)
