I installed MPD, made configurations, but as I try to start it nothing happens.
Here is the output:
[root@hklinux hk]# mpd --no-daemon --stdout --verbose
config: loading file /etc/mpd.conf
listen: bind to '0.0.0.0:6600' failed: Address already in use (continuing anyway, because binding to '[::]:6600' succeeded)
path: path_set_fs_charset: fs charset is: UTF-8
pcm: libsamplerate converter 'Fastest Sinc Interpolator'
database: reading DB
disabling the last.fm playlist plugin because account is not configured
disabling the soundcloud playlist plugin because API key is not set
daemon: opening pid file
daemon: writing pid file
avahi: Initializing interface
avahi: Client changed to state 101
avahi: Client is CONNECTING
state_file: Loading state file /var/lib/mpd/mpdstate
Any help please?

Are you sure MPD is not starting? I see no error messages in your output unless you are supposed to be seeing "Client connected," but I don't think it does do that. Are you able to connect to your MPD server using a frontend like Sonata or Ncmpcpp?
I guess they are called "clients," but yeah you need one in order to interface with mpd. I had a lot of problems initially figuring out mpd myself so I totally understand when others also run into problems....
Don't forget to mark the thread as "solved."
