    Hi all,

    today i was setting up my new server (FreeBSD 7.0 Beta2 AMD64). I just builded the svn-1696 sources and installing them, but on start i get the error

    plugins/plugin_dir not specified
    Aborting

    I checked my installation and found the plugin_dir in /usr/local/lib/mt-daapd/plugins. I tried to make a symlink to a folder where mt-daapd search the plugins but this doesn’t work. The Configurations seems ok and the plugin_dir is set up.

    Here is the mt-daapd.log with debuglevel 9

    well, the message sais that the plugins_dir isnt found under dne plugins section in the config file.

    that should read like this:

    [plugins]
    plugin_dir = /foo/bar

    yeah i know, the problem is, i got such section in my mt-daapd.conf. but this doesnt matter. at the moment i update my userland and kernel, i hope in a couple of hours theres is a chance for me to try it and fix it.

    Thanks

    well afterall, i have no solution found for this problem. maybe my config helps.

    # play them. Perhaps this would be useful on Linux with
    # Rhythmbox, once it understands daap. (hurry up!)
    #
    # Failing that, one can use server-side conversion to transcode
    # non-standard (.ogg, .flac) music to wav on the server side.
    # See the ssc_* options below.
    #
    # To be able to index .ogg files, you’ll need to have configured

    # Parameter filename is the real name of the file that is
    # to be converted and streamed, offset is number of bytes
    # that are skipped from the beginning of the _output_ file
    # before streaming is started, length is length of the song
    # in seconds (or zero). All other possible arguments must
    # be ignored. The resulting wav file (or the rest of
    # the file after initial seek) is written to the standard
    # output by the ssc_prog program. This is typically

    #
    # Not that the -d switch will control the log verbosity.

    # How often to check the file system to see if any mp3 files
    # have been added or removed.
    #
    # if not specified, the default is 0, which disables background scanning.
    #
    # If background rescanning is disabled, a scan can still be forced from the
    # “status” page of the administrative web interface
    #
    # Setting a rescan_interval lower than the time it takes to rescan

    #
    # The default behavior is not not do background rescans of the

    # allow the drives to spin down unless they are in use. This might be
    # of more importance in IDE drives that aren’t designed to be run
    # 24×7. Forcing a scan through the web interface will always work

    #
    # 0 (Normal)
    # Just scan the first mp3 frame to try and calculate size. This will
    # be accurate for most files, but VBR files without an Xing tag will
    # probably have wildly inaccurate file times. This is the default.
    #
    # 1 (Aggressive)
    # This checks the bitrates of 10 frames in the middle of the song.
    # This will still be inaccurate for VBR files without an Xing tag,
    # but they probably won’t be quite as inaccurate as 0. This takes
    # more time, obviously, although the time hit will only happen the
    # first time you scan a particular file.
    #
    # 2 (Painfully aggressive)
    # This walks through the entire song, counting the number of frames.
    # This should result in accurate song times, but will take the most
    # time. Again, this will only have to be incurred the first time
    # the file is indexed.
    #

    #
    # compress
    #
    # Whether to use gzip content-encoding when transferring playlists etc.
    # This was contributed as a patch by Ciamac Moallemi just prior to the 0.2.1
    # release, and as such, hasn’t gotten as much testing as other features.
    #
    # This feature should substantially speed up transfers of large databases
    # and playlists.
    #
    # It will eventually default to 1, but currently it defaults to 0.
    #

    # should itunes xml files be processed?
    #

    # should m3u files be processed?
    #

    is there a problem building mt-daapd on an amd64?

    Your libtool isn’t honoring -avoid-version. You should be able to make a symlink for “librsp.so” to “librsp.so.0.0”, etc, and it should work.

    hi ron,

    thx for help. one problem solved but another one appeared. I am starting the mt-daapd but it “crashes” immediately. after that i startet it with debuglevel 9.

    i removed now my complete installation of mt-daapd-svn-1696 and tried svn-1586, which is still running on my old server (FreeBSD 6.2 p4 x86). But i get the same error. I think it’s a problem with x64. Does anybody got mt-daapd running on an x64 (amd64, x86_64) server (linux, freebsd)? i would switch to x86 but i need zfs support which is more stable (freebsd user experiences) on x64.

    I hope someone has a solution for my problem πŸ™

    Getting rid of –enable-upnp would probably help. What other configure flags did you use?

    #14222

    Participant

    hi ron,

    i set the following configure flags:

    ./configure –enable-sqlite3 –with-id3tag=/usr/local –enable-oggvorbis –enable-flac –enable-upnp –enable-musepack

    so upnpsupport is already builtin. After that I configured it that way:

    ./configure –enable-sqlite3 –with-id3tag=/usr/local

    But this produces the same error.

    A friend of mine is testing, building and installing svn-1696 on an x86_64 freebsd 7.0 asap. usually he uses svn-1696 on an x86 freebsd 7.0 without having such trouble. i hope i can reply as soon as possible if he also gets this error.

    Hi Ron,

    well as i told you above, my friend get the same problem on different hardware but same os and architecture (x86_64).

    I can send u a log from building mt-daapd if this helps.

    Yesterday i tried to building it with avahi support but i get errors when building mt-daapd. So this won’t work too.

    Greetings
