    I’m running mt-daapd on an NLSU2. Yesterday I tried running it with only about 15 mp3 files in the directory, and it seemed to work fine.
    Now, when I have copied all my 4,000 some files to the directory, mt-daapd crashes during the mp3 file scan:

    2005-04-04 22:39:39: Starting rendezvous daemon
    2005-04-04 22:39:39: Starting signal handler
    2005-04-04 22:39:39: Initializing database
    2005-04-04 22:39:39: Starting mp3 scan

    port 3689
    2005-04-04 22:40:49: Could not open port: Address already in use
    2005-04-04 22:40:49: Error staring web server: Address already in use

    2005-04-04 22:40:49: Aborting

    What could be causing this?



    It means another instance of mt-daapd is already running. You will probably have to delete your songs.gdb, if you had multiple mt-daapds running on the same database. The possibility of database corruption is pretty high.

    For some reason the signal handling on the nslu2 is different than any of the other platforms I’ve run mt-daapd on, and I can’t get it to stop cleanly (except via the web interface). I’ve always had to do a “killall -9 mt-daapd” on the nslu2. Which is hackish, but I don’t have a better way (except the web interface).

    Thanks, that was it. I was pretty sure I had rebooted the NSLU2 before I added all those files but apparently I hadn’t so when it came up again with only one instance running it did complete the scan and is now running fine.
