Re: MPD on ubuntu

well the system had me reboot anyways, so when I came back up, I launched mpd with your above options.

Now I am waiting. The terminal session is sitting on Avahi: Service 'Music Player' successfully established.

I will let you know once this gets completed.

Thanks for the help

Re: MPD on ubuntu

I'm not sure I understand? Do I have to wait 3-4 days now while it scans all 60,000+ songs?

is there a file that should be running in the background updating the DB that I can monitor? How will I know when it is done?
