View Full Version : [other] Mediatomb run error

I posted this in Apple talk already, but I think this is a better place for it. Sorry for the second posting...

Hello I am trying to install Mediatomb to stream media from my computer to my PS3 and I am getting some errors. Was just hoping some more informed eyes might know what is going on here. I am actually running off of OSX but I have Ubuntu on another computer, and the Terminal works the same. Anyway after installing Mediatomb I get this:

---> Fetching mediatomb
---> Verifying checksum(s) for mediatomb
---> Extracting mediatomb
---> Applying patches to mediatomb
---> Configuring mediatomb
---> Building mediatomb
---> Staging mediatomb into destroot
---> Installing mediatomb @0.11.0_0+ffmpeg+sqlite3+taglib

* to <import> section of ~/.mediatomb/config.xml.
************************************************** ****
---> Activating mediatomb @0.11.0_0+ffmpeg+sqlite3+taglib
---> Cleaning mediatomb

Now that looks good to me, doesn't seem to be any errors... but when I run Mediatomb in Terminal after that I get:

MediaTomb UPnP Server version 0.11.0 - http://mediatomb.cc/

Any ideas what this error means? How to fix it maybe? Thanks!
