    Hi

    I have Firefly release svn-1333 running on Sylver’s 5.0 on a Kurobox.

    I started by following this guide to install the updated kernel, and then documented the process I followed to update mt-daapd to Firefly.

    I put me some MP3s and a couple of FLAC files into my MP3 directory and tested it worked by getting Firefly to transcode FLAC to iTunes. All worked great until I moved about 20Gb worth of music (folder organised) into that MP3 folder and now can’t get Firefly to catalogue any music. The box has been powered off a couple of times since I tested it as working, so maybe I missed something at startup (I would also like to know how to get it to start on boot-up)

    Anyone know how to get it to see the music?

    Here are the uncommented sections of my config file:


    # $Id: mt-daapd.conf.templ 1238 2006-06-18 04:54:13Z rpedde $

    [general]
    web_root = /usr/local/share/mt-daapd/admin-root
    port = 3689
    admin_pw = mt-daapd
    db_type = sqlite
    db_parms = /usr/local/var/cache/mt-daapd
    mp3_dir = /mnt/mp3/
    servername = kurobox
    runas = nobody
    playlist = /usr/local/etc/mt-daapd.playlist
    extensions = .mp3,.m4a,.m4p,.flac
    ssc_codectypes = ogg,flac,alac
    ssc_prog = /usr/local/bin/mt-daapd-ssc.sh
    logfile = /var/log/mt-daapd.log
    scan_type = 2
    debuglevel = 1

    [plugins]
    plugin_dir = /usr/local/share/mt-daapd/plugins
    plugins = rsp.so,ssc-script.so

    When I run a scan, this is the only item which shows up in the log:

    2006-08-26 19:16:08 (00000400): Rescanning database

    Where do I start?

    Thanks

    You can increase the log level. In the [general] section, set debuglevel to 5.

    Then start it and see what you get. If you don’t get anywhere, you can try 9.

    It’s possible it might just be general slowness… in 1340 stuff was added that make rescanning the database significantly faster, so that might be a place to go, also.

    Ahemmmm… ooops!

    It was a permissions problem 🙂 I had assumed that when I copied the new music over, by default the files would take the permissions of the parent MP3 folder, but they didn’t, so Firefly had no access to catalogue the files

    Thanks for the pointer

    James
