MySQL problem on opensuse 10.2

  • arjan ten hoopen


    I have installed mediatomb on my openSUSE 10.2:

    I have updated config.xml to make sure it will use the mysql database I have created, here's my config.xml:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <config xmlns="" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:schemaLocation="">
        <ui enabled="yes">
          <accounts enabled="no" session-timeout="30"/>
        <storage driver="mysql">

    ** removed import section **

    If I now start mediatomb (/etc/init.d/mediatomb start) the log file shows following error:

    2007-11-21 16:38:57    INFO: Loading configuration from: /etc/mediatomb/config.xml
    2007-11-21 16:38:57    INFO: Checking configuration...
    2007-11-21 16:38:57    INFO: Config: option not found: /server/servedir using default value:
    2007-11-21 16:38:57   ERROR: Config: option not found: /server/storage/database-file

    To me that's really strange since it was configured for mysql!! The option which wasn't found is for sqlite3.

    Anybody any idea??? Or do I miss something???

    PS: I have a collection of about 50.000 music tracks .. so I think choosing mysql over sqlite3 makes sence :-)

      this is a known bug which is fixed in current SVN, as a workaround add a dummy <database-file>something</database-file> entry, it will not be used anyway if the driver is set to MySQL.

      Kind regards,
