Bug Description

Simple naming bug, easy to fix. However, it does cause user settings to be ignored!

In /etc/defaults/mediatomb all settings variables are prefixed by MT_, e.g. line 11:


But in /etc/init.d/mediatomb only $OPTIONS is missing its MT_ prefix, so line 80 it says:

DAEMON_ARGS="-c /etc/mediatomb/config.xml -d -u $MT_USER -g $MT_GROUP -P $MT_PIDFILE -l $MT_LOGFILE $INTERFACE_ARG $OPTIONS"

Effectively, any MT_OPTIONS set in /etc/defaults/mediatomb are ignored by the init script.

This will fix it, almost as good as a patch:

sed 's,$OPTIONS,$MT_OPTIONS,g' -i /etc/init.d/mediatomb
