    Hi,
    Just installed mediatomb for the first time on Ubuntu 8.10.
    I'm facing few problems with the mediatomb.

    First is that it wont start up:
    When I install it starts up nicely and I can add everything into mediatomb.
    After next start up web page won't come up any more.
    I noticed that it's running in the background so I changed all the startup scripts in /etc/rc?.d to s20mediatomb so it won't startup automaticaly in next start up.
    Then I start mediatomb from terminal manually (no errors) but mediatomb webpage doesn't come up.

    Second problem.
    I'm trying to change the IP address for the URL from 172.16.241.1:49152 to 192.168.1.3:49152 but it always changes back to the old one. Why is that?
    Second problem is not related to the first. I have both IP's on my computer.

    Thank you in advance for you help,
    JuPe

      OK, I did some changes and got it to work.
      I left /etc/rc?.d/ to lower case s20 so mediatomb won't start by it self.
      I added in System>Preferences>Session
      - mediatomb
      - mediatomb -e eth0
      - fileserver

      No it comes up automaticly to correct interface and works.

      Regards,

      Sorry for not being responsive, I am currently on holidays without a permanent internet connection.

      Regarding the IP and the web interface: it will always use the IP in the URL to which the server is bound do (i.e. either via -i or -e).

      Kind regards,
      Jin
