mt-daapd was working for me for a long while. At some point it stopped (perhaps after an apt-get upgrade, but I really don’t know when). The errors I see are:
$ sudo mt-daapd -f
Firefly Version svn-1696: Starting with debuglevel 2
Error loading plugin /usr/lib/mt-daapd/plugins/ssc-script.so: plugin declined to load

Starting signal handler
Error: constraint failed
Rendezvous socket closed (daap server crashed?) Aborting.
I see the errors for ssc-script.so and the HOWL compatibility layer, but I didn’t think those were fatal. I did some searches for “Error: constraint failed” but couldn’t find anything firefly or mt-daapd related.
Any clues here? This is on a hardy machine with a standard ‘apt-get mt-daapd’ install. I hear that the HOWL compatibility can be fixed for hardy machines by compiling my own mt-daapd with the right configuration, but I don’t want to bother unless I know that’s really the problem.

dont worry about the ssc stuff, thats just for embedded systems like the slug. You are transcoding with ffmpeg.
The avahi messages are nothing you can do anything about, thats up to a dev to fix.
The most likely cause is that your database is corrupted, and firefyl cannot update it. Rename it and see if that fixes it.
You might also change to sqlite3 while you’re at it, which will break compatibility with your old database for good, but it’s usually worth it since sqlite3 is stabler.20th October 2008 at 3:41 am #17789
Awesome. Clearing out the DB file indeed forced it to rebuild the DB and everything’s hunky dory now. Thanks!9th January 2009 at 1:20 am #17790
I had a problem with firefly on the HP Media smart server not saving the option enable for itunes sharing and this same solution got me working again. I just renamed the old db file can’t remember the actual name but it ended in 3.db and it created a new one which works fine now. Thanks
