Most likely an already-running instance of mt-daapd. (Or a zombie of one, likewise).
ps -aux|grep daapd
is your friend 😉27/08/2007 at 1:31 PM #12200mode87Participant
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.
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:
that does the trick.28/08/2007 at 3:53 AM #12202
