Yosemite and MPD - "connection refused"

Recommended Posts

Hi all - after upgrading to Yosemite, my mpd setup is acting up (installed via Homebrew).

 

My mpd log doesn't show anything odd, nor does starting it with '--verbose'. In fact, it doesn't appear that the daemon is even alive after invoking it from the command line:

In addition, I don't see mpd as a user or system service in the Activity Monitor/top (the pid that mpd writes to my pid file does not seem to exist, so an "mpd --kill" returns a "no such process" error).

 

Anyone have any suggestions?

 

Cheers!

Update: I reinstalled mpd via Homebrew, and notice a blurb at the end of the install saying mpd can be started at login via launchctl now. So I followed those instructions and now things are working fine again.

 

Side-note: I was also able to launch mpd via my automator script with '--no-daemon' but this caused a spinning 'gear' to appear in my status bar that wouldn't disappear (as the underlying task remained ailve).

 

Note to self: RTFM...!
