I have installed MiniDLNA on my Iomega NAS (via ipkg) and all seems to run correctly - the DLNA server is visible on my network.
My problem is that despite putting the path in minidlna.conf, minidlna scans the folder but finds 0 files. Here is the debug log (I deleted the old db before running this):
root@Iomega:/# /opt/sbin/minidlna -f /opt/etc/minidlna.conf -d
minidlna.c:609: warn: Starting MiniDLNA…
sql.c:49: error: SQL ERROR 1

minidlna.c:645: warn: Database version mismatch; need to recreate…

minidlna.c:684: warn: HTTP listening on port 8200
scanner.c:799: warn: Scanning /nethdd/media/movies finished (0 files)!
The folder contains 6 different video files of c100Mb each, both .avi and .mpg.
I am not sure if this helpful but just in case:

Any help gratefully received!
Are you able to compile minidlna yourself? It looks to me like it could be a problem with an old minidlna version that had problems with uClibc.
Thanks for the quick reply, I did try and look for a newer compiled version before posting as I suspected that was the problem but with no luck. I'm a bit of a linux newbie (though I am quite technical) and from the reading I've done about compiling I'm not so sure I am able to do it - it looks like an involved project as opposed to compiling for i386? I am happy to get stuck in though!
Incidentally and I am not sure it is relevant, the latest version of minidlna is being packaged for OpenWRT and there is a makefile as well as some patches available:
Assuming, as I suspect, that compiling is a bit technical - can I use these files to help me compile?
I have the same problem with the version that is available via ipkg / optware, however it is from 2009… I have been trying to find a guide to compile from source on my NAS.
