    Ubuntu Startup, Squeezecenter start before Network manager

    On reboot I lost all my music library.
    If i rescan, nothing appened. Music library is on a network drive that i have mounted.(smbfs)

    I think network manager of ubuntu start after SQUEEZESERVER. As a result , music is not found.
    As a fix, i change network link for the playlist and then rescan is effective.

    PC is runnning ubuntu 9.04 and slimserver 7.4.2

    I've take a look at runlevel and it seems like network manager start after Squeezecenter.


    How can i relauch or launch squeezecenter later and see if it fix the issues

    Where can we request that change in SQUEEZEBOXSERVER to Boot after network manager (if it make sense)

    Perfect Syntak!
    Works after restart, I've tried to change boot order using update-rc.d,still not working at boot.

    That is controlled by the contents of /etc/init.d/
    If there is an executable script in that directory, it gets started when
    the system is. See Debian documentation for details.

    I've started having the same issue with Ubuntu 9.10 & 7.4.1.

    It used to be fine, but now I need to re-start squeezeboxserver manually to get it to pick up the music folder. Once I do that, it's all good.

    Also, I notice that the Ubuntu boot is taking a bit longer than it used to, don't know if this is related??

    As a noobie to ubuntu, I'm not sure where to begin with this one....so any ideas/suggestions would be much appreciated.

    If it's not already included in Ubuntu 9.10 (I'm still using 8.10 and 9.04), install BUM (Boot Up Manager) via the Synaptic utility. It has a nice graphical interface for managing the order in which services are started at boot time. Make sure that SbS is started after the network drive is mounted.

    BUM is essentially a user-friendly interface to the /etc/init.d/ settings that pfarrell mentioned earlier.

    The order in which services are started depends on the links from /etc/rc2.d back to /etc/init.d. Thy are stated in lexivographic order, so /etc/rc2.d/S40networking will be started before /etc/rc2.d/S99squeezeboxserver.
