After reinstalling mldonkey-server on my new edgy installation, it appeared that mldonkey-server was not starting on boot up :s.
mldonkey-server was working fine, as I could start it with:
$sudo /etc/init.d/mldonkey-server start
but on reboot, the daemon was not launched .
Checking /var/log/boot, I could find the following message:
Starting MLDonkey: mlnet Could not guess $HOME environnement variable: provide a --chdir or $HOME
It actually appeared that --chdir was properly set, so I gave a try to setting up $HOME.
If you are running into the same trouble, get the patch, then:
$sudo patch -p0 < /path/to/mldonkey.patch.txt
And on the next reboot, it should be working .
Hope this helped.
