MPD (Failed to bind to 6600) [SOLVED]

I have followed the wiki guidelines for setting up mpd to start as a user (.xinitrc).

I have my music in ~/music and have created ~/.mpd with all the files listed in wiki.  I have pretty lenient permissions on files to avoid errors and ipozya is listed as the owner.  When I run mpd I get:

Failed to bind to '[::]:6600': Failed to create socket: Address family not supported by protocol.

~/.mpd/mpd.conf

music_directory        "/home/ipozya/music"
playlist_directory             "/home/ipozya/.mpd/playlists"
db_file                              "/home/ipozya/.mpd/mpd.db"
log_file                             "/home/ipozya/.mpd/mpd.log"
pid_file                             "/home/ipozya/.mpd/mpd.pid"
state_file                          "/home/ipozya/.mpd/mpdstate"
user                                  "ipozya"

If i open ncmpcpp and click u to update db, it does not load my music, although I guess this can't be done until the above is solved.

ps aux | grep mpd:

ipozya 1175  0.0  0.1 221056 10164 ?        Ssl  17:20   0:00 mpd /home/ipozya/.mpd/mpd.conf
ipozya   1910  0.0  0.0   8156   972 pts/0    S+   17:31   0:00 grep mpd

Any help is greatly appreciated. I am sure the error is something I have overlooked, like a permission.

Try adding the following to your config:

bind_to_address "127.0.0.1"

With this change, I now get:

Failed to bind to '127.0.0.1:6600': Address already in use

Try setting it to 'any' or '0.0.0.0', that is the default.

Re: MPD (Failed to bind to 6600) [SOLVED]

This gives me the same error that I first receive ("Failed to bind to '[::]:6600': Failed to create socket: Address family not supported by protocol.")

Kill mpd. Then run

mpd --no-daemon --stdout --verbose

Re: MPD (Failed to bind to 6600) [SOLVED]

It looks like you had another instance of mpd, because I can reproduce your error trying to start mpd when the daemon is already running. If you start it via .xinitrc, there's no reason to manually run it again, because it's automatically started with your X session. In fact the last output you posted didn't show any error, because you first killed it. The ps aux output maybe showed out the instance started by .xinitrc. When you say "here it freezes" it actually listens for client actions. Try repeating the above steps and, once state_file is loaded, start another terminal session, run ncmpcpp, update db and look at the output in the terminal where you launched mpd from. You could possibly post it to see what it actually means when you say that hitting 'u' doesn't load your music. Please, also check if the path for 'music_directory' is correct.
Further, you should not set the 'user' variable, that gives the message

daemon: cannot init supplementary groups of user "ipozya"; Operation not permitted

Just delete the 'user "ipozya"' line.

Thank you for this explanation.  Commenting out the user line in mpd.conf solved the issue!

hazeldef, do not necrobump old threads.

This is the 4th infraction with 3 being in your first post. I implore you again. Read the forum rules.

Closing...
