Only works with -f parameter

    I use mt-daap 0.2.3, that I installed on my WL-hdd through ipkg.
    When I start it up with the -f parameter in the foreground it works fine. When I leave out the – parameter it starts, but does not serve iTunes nor web pages. The log (-d9) reads:

    (Similar lines repeated)

    I tried admin and nobody as “runas”, but it made no difference.

    Any ideas?


    You’ll need to start it as root, and run it as a user that has write permission to the db_dir directory, and has read permissions to the whole mp3 library.

    Quick answer is “chmod 664 -R /path/to/mp3/files”

    That gives everyone read access to the mp3 files. Then you can

    “chown run_as /var/cache/mt-daapd”

    Where run_as is your run_as user.

    That’s at least a working solution.

    Making the changes as you suggested didn’t help.
    It is obviously related to authorisation, but the WL-hdd has only one user (admin) that I think is root equivalent. Te runas user I specify is also admin. I did try nobody, but that didn’t help either

    I will try some more, mayby referencing only one directory allowing free access.


    I hadn’t even hit the fact that these were the same issue.
