I have the following Problem, I compiled and installed MiniDLNA on my RaspberryPi, with Raspian, with the following commands.
$ wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/minidlna/files/minidlna/1.1.2/minidlna-1.1.2.tar.gz
$ tar -xzf minidlna-1.1.2.tar.gz
$ sudo apt-get build-dep minidlna
$ cd minidlna-1.1.2
$ sudo make install
$ sudo cp minidlna.conf /etc/
$ sudo cp linux/minidlna.init.d.script /etc/init.d/minidlna
$ sudo chmod 755 /etc/init.d/minidlna
$ sudo update-rc.d minidlna defaults
In top there are shown two minidlnad pids.
All commands like "sudo service minidlna start|restart|reload|force-reload" are working fine.
But after I watched a Video I have several pids shown up in "top"
And commands like "force-reload" don't work anymore.
I get following messanges:
$ sudo service minidlna stop
[....] Stopping minidlna: minidlnastart-stop-daemon: warning: failed to kill 14558: No such process
$ sudo service minidlna start
[ ok ] Starting minidlna: minidlna.
$ sudo service minidlna force-reload
[....] Restarting minidlna: minidlnastart-stop-daemon: warning: failed to kill 17579: No such process
And the database doesn't rebuild itself.
What can I do to use the force-reload command again?
I wanted to use this command in a cronjob because a media_dir is ntfs formatted.
Really appreciate some help!
Can you post the contents of your /etc/init.d/minidlna
Also, it seems like the process crashed in between?
