    hi am am getting an error saying that the port is in use, i dont not know what else could be using the port, is there a way i can check so as to stop that program?

    Starting with debuglevel 2
    Starting rendezvous daemon

    Most likely an already-running instance of mt-daapd. (Or a zombie of one, likewise).

    ps -aux|grep daapd

    is your friend 😉

    so i did that and i do have two of them running now how would i go about getting rid of one of them. and sorry for being a linux noob.

    ps -aux|grep daapd

    ok, procps 101 here 😉

    the first output of ps is the process’s name. The second is the Process ID, or PID.

    use the command “kill” to get rid of one process.
    For instance:

    kill 10890

    Tells the process with the ID 10890 to bail. If that process became corrupt or hang, or the likes, you can also force the process to be killed in a similiar manner.

    kill -9 10890

    If the processes aint hung, there is another nice feat:

    killall mt-daapd

    that does the trick.

    And if they are hung, “killall -9 mt-daapd” will work, just as above.
