View Full Version : [ubuntu] Mediatomb Headless not working

February 2nd, 2012, 05:47 PM

So I have installed and configured mediatomb, opened a port on my firewall for it to run, and if i type sudo mediatomb in to the terminal via ssh it starts, and then I can see it on my Playstation and it works fine. As soon as i close the ssh window it shots off mediatomb.

If I type sudo mediatomb -d it starts mediatomb but my ps3 cant see it.

Can anyone help me set mediatomb running in the background all the time even if im not logged in via ssh?

Its a headless server setup on 11.10 server edition.

Many thanks

Mediatomb should start on boot.

To restart try:

sudo service mediatomb restart

What is the output of:

ls -alt /etc/init.d/mediatomb

You should also see mediatomb in your rc scripts.

what is the output of:

ls /etc/rc2.d
