PS3 Media Server needs manual start after Restart (daemon)

Postby SlasherIT » Mon May 21, 2012 7:09 pm

Hi guys,

I'm running into a problem where after I restart the computer, the following happens. Note, I am using happy.neko's PPA and running PMS as a daemon, on Ubuntu 12.04. So, once Ubuntu fully loads, the media server appears on the PS3. I select the Media Server on the PS3, and it just shows a message saying no files found or something like that. I have done tests and confirmed that it is the fault of PMS and not the PS3. The fix I am having to apply every-time is to open the terminal and stop and start the daemon, using: sudo /etc/init.d/ps3mediaserver stop , then: sudo /etc/init.d/ps3mediaserver start. After doing this, everything works fine and great. Until I have to restart... I set the daemon on purpose so that it would not require user intervention after Ubuntu has loaded. So if someone could help me fix this... I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.

Hey happy.neko,

I noticed the new 1.53.0 is out. Is the issue fixed? I saw this in the changelog "Fix startup for symlinked PMS.sh (#1356) (thanks, Matthijs!)", is that it? Or no? Also, are you going to update your PPA to include the new update? Thanks.

Cool, means I'm not alone :). I'm going to try PMS under Debian and see if the issue is present or not as well.

Ok, I ran PMS on Debian Squeezy (Stable), and I can confirm that the issue is still present. After startup, I have to login, open terminal, and stop and start PMS in order for it to work properly. I used your (happy.neko) .deb to install on Debian, just so you know.

I hope tomorrow new version (1.53.99) will be ready. Purge your installation (sudo apt-get purge ps3mediaserver) and test if the problem somehow fixes itself.
If not I'll have to look into init.d scripts.

Should I purge on Ubuntu or Debian? I have both, along with XP in a tri-boot environment.Also, should I test after purging on the same version, or the new updated version?
