Currently, it doesn't appear as though the notification system works on FreeBSD. minidlna uses inotify, which is only available on the Linux platform.
This request is to replace inotify with dbus, which would provide portability for the notification system for other platforms like OSX, *BSD, etc which rely on kqueue not inotify. Using a portable library (dbus) would seem the more robust way to do this, but using kqueue(2) on supported platforms would also work. I am just looking for asynchronous event notification for FreeBSD so that adding new files to the directory(ies) served by minidlna would be seen without having to restart minidlna.
Thanks in advance!
