Sorry i copy/paste, new pkgbuild:

Please remove me from your PKGBUILD, I'm not the maintainer any more.

I found out there is a serviio log file at /var/log/serviio/serviio.log and this is what caught my attention there:

"The database directory '/usr/share/java/serviio/library/db' exists. However, it does not contain the expected '' file. Perh aps Derby was brought down in the middle of creating this database. You may want to delete this directory and try creating the database again."

So I removed the db directory, restarted serviiod daemon, and run kdesu "serviio-console" through kde alt-f2 and it worked fine. It still does not work through terminal using "sudo serviio-console" but it's ok since it's accessible through alt-f2.

So if anyone gets this problem, now there is a solution, hope it helps. =)

Thnx for managing the pkgbuild, cheers!

Hi, I get the same output that I pasted bellow. So that same output goes for running under root (su), and running with sudo. Running it without root privileges gives "Must be run as root.".

What happens if you run serviio-console as root(via su) in a kde-terminalwindow?

Hi, I get this on trying to run serviio-console:

No protocol specified
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.InternalError: Can't connect to X11 window server using ':0' as the value of the DISPLAY variable.

at org.serviio.console.ServiioConsole.main(

Before that I started the /etc/rc.d/serviiod daemon. I also tried by simply running serviio from console, but nothing helps.
When I try to run serviio-console running "kdesu serviio-console" (alt-f2 in KDE), the app runs but says that it couldn't connect serviio server..

@benwbooth: Thx, I changed the path.

I think if the systemd service file is being installed by a package, it should get installed to /usr/lib/systemd/system/ instead of /etc/systemd/system/. AFAIK, /etc/systemd/system/ is only for manually created service files.
