    Well, I can’t catch a break! 🙂

    I rebuilt again assuming that flac was libFlac and flac-devel was libFlac-devel. Got the versions without dependency issues and rebuilt. No errors I could see. Edited the new conf, restarted the service. So far, so good.

    But now, I’m not even seeing the admin page when I go to port 3689. Wrong rpm libraries? How to debug?

    Thanks,
    Drew

    You can see if anything is listening to the daap port with something like:

    netstat -ntpl | grep 3689

    If you don’t see anything, nothing is listening on 3689. If it won’t start, then check /var/log/syslog. It should have dumped an error message in there.

    Failing all that, you can try and run it in the foreground with something like:

    mt-daapd -d9 -f -c /etc/mt-daapd.conf

    and it should print why it’s failing.

    Thanks Ron,

    mt-daapd.log ends with the error entries:

    2007-11-01 21:27:42 (b7d106c0): db_sqlite2_open: unable to open database: /usr/var/cache/mt-daapd/songs.db (/usr/var/cache/mt-daapd/songs.db)
    2007-11-01 21:27:42 (b7d106c0): Error opening db: Misc SQL Error: unable to open database: /usr/var/cache/mt-daapd/songs.db

    The directory it notes is empty. I assume it builds songs.db itself. Do I need to seed that with an empty db, or is this some type of failure in sqlite2?

    Ron,

    I found the core problem. The program did not have rights to /usr/var/cache/mt-daapd for writing. I mod 777’d it and after some reindexing time, the admin page starts now.

    I can test the streaming as soon as my Mac user gets here. Thanks for your patience with me!

    iTunes user reports it’s working like a champ now. Thanks Ron!
