TwonkyMedia Server dies, looks lik DB issue?

Post by Mettius » Sun Mar 14, 2010 9:56 pm

I'm initially able to get to the configure pages https://<ipaddress>:9000/config
I change the server name and add a login username password.

Unfortunatly twonky will then shortly die. I see the following in the log.

------------------------------------------------
14:13:29:459 createTable(itemTable,"Item") failed
File: ../../../server/sqlite/item.c
Function: dbx_item_init
Line: 153
14:13:29:459 dbx_item_init() failed
File: ../../../server/sqlite/adapter.c
Function: dbx_modules_init
Line: 231
----------------------------------------------

If I delete everything in the /var/twonkymedia directory, the mediaserver can then successfully be started but it soon dies again the the above messages.
I'm running OpenSUSE 11.1 x64

What version (number) of Twonky are you running?

Seems to run if i remove everything in the /var/twonkymedia folder but as soon as i make a change or try to rebuild the database it crashes

It occured to me that this appeared to be a permissions issue.

I started from scratch by removing every reference to Twonky on my system

rm -rf /usr/local/twonkymedia/*
rm -rf /var/twonkymedia
rm -rf ~/.TwonkyMediaServer

then as root, grabbed the 5.1.3, manual install

wget http://www.twonkyforum.com/downloads/5. ... -5.1.3.zip
unzipped it and ran it ... as root and everything works.
xbox is happy and settings can change without twonky freaking on me.
