    I have setup Firefly on a Kubuntu system to work with my Roku. I had not problems with the setup. I changed the config to look at the proper folder: /mnt/hdb1/MP3 (and yes I doublechecked), went onto the config webpage and started the scan last night. This morning, nothing had happened.

    Any info would be helpfull

    what version of firefly/mt-daapd (two names, 1 piece of software) ?
    What user did you run firefly as ?
    and what are the permissions to /mnt/hdb1/MP3 ?
    I’d guess its a fat32 formatted HD ?

    then something like umask=000 would help in the mtab ๐Ÿ˜‰


    Hello fizze,

    Here’s what I installed mt-daapd_0.2.4-1_i386.deb
    Everything was installed and is running using sudo commands (so root).
    I’ll have to doublecheck the permissions on the directory (I’m at work now), though I know the owner is mchassy (me ;-).
    The disk is formatted in ext3.

    I’m pretty sure I know how to change permissions.

    chmod 666 /mnt/hdb1/MP3 should be enough? What’s the option for recursive -R?

    What’s mtab?

    Thanx for your help



    mt-daapd runs as guest, if its invoked as root, so thats where it failed, because it ditnt have access to those files.
    You can change the mt-daapd.conf though, so it will run as mchassy ๐Ÿ˜‰

    /etc/mtab lists all currently mounted filesystems.
    you got me there. the settings for mounts would be set up in /etc/fstab ๐Ÿ˜€

    Yes, -R is recursive. And chmod 666 would work, but that will get directories as well, and make them non descendable, so that’s not so good.

    Probably “chmod -R a+r /mnt/hdb1/MP3” would be good.

    Umm yeah I just realized that about 10 minutes ago. So I did a 777 on the directory ๐Ÿ˜‰ Now it all works fine.
