The following tripped me up for a while this afternoon so thought I’d post to make others aware …
I’d installed the software onto my NSLU2 with no errors but could not access the web config pages. Tried removing and reinstalling etc before having the sense to turn on the logging.
2008-05-12 14:02:51: Starting rendezvous daemon
2008-05-12 14:02:51: Current database version: 8

2008-05-12 14:02:51: Initializing database
2008-05-12 14:02:55: Starting mp3 scan
2008-05-12 14:09:52: Starting web server from /opt/share/mt-daapd/admin-root on port 3600
2008-05-12 14:09:52: Registering rendezvous names
2008-05-12 14:09:52: Scanned 28296 songs in 421 seconds
I found that the web server is started after the first MP3 scan so for 7mins it looked like the software wasn’t working.
Might be worth mentioning this in the install guide?
Awesome program though – absolutely love it!!13th May 2008 at 12:01 am #16973
Correct, this is known to most experienced firefly users. It is just nowhere explicitly mentioned.
The admin page goes up as soon as the boot scan is done.13th May 2008 at 12:51 am #16974
The startup scan can be disabled. It’s one of the options in the configuration page.13th May 2008 at 5:53 am #16975

Ah, but on the initial start up, the scan always happens. And if it doesn’t finish, or throws off an error, then you can’t access the web configuration screen to disable the scan!
You have to telnet in and manually edit the mt-daapd.conf file found at /opt/etc/mt-daapd/ using VI or by using another linux editor you install. There are some instructions at http://wiki.fireflymediaserver.org/NSLU2_Installation that describe how to manually edit the file.13th May 2008 at 7:25 am #16976
yes right, disabling the initial scan and setting an empty (sane) mp3_dir in the default config file would probably make sense.
