No

Running multiple instances of minidlna is not possible due to the fact that minidlna uses the mac address for generating a unique UUID, and as such
restricting the possibility of running multiple instances on a single server..

However, setting of the UUID in the configuration is already allowed (config.c), but cannot be used because that parameter is not processed at all.

This patch will process any value given in the configuration and use that as UUID, thus implementing the possibility of running multiple instances using different config files....

(the patch consists of adding 3 lines of code in the minidlna.c)
(base is sourceforge version: 1.0.24)
