Minidlna Segmentation fault

with SAMBA and miniDLNA
I have access to the HD files from my computer
the TV is connected to the router and thru minidlna server I WAS able to see the movies.
Several days ago, it stopped. I dont see the minidlna server in the TV or the PC.
(I think because I updated KODI)
looking at minidlna status I get:
sudo service minidlna status

  • minidlna.service - LSB: Start minidlna at boot time
    Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/minidlna)
    Active: active (exited) since Fri 2018-04-06 11:17:02 IDT; 13min ago

    Process: 1214 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/minidlna start (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)

I tried updating/reinstalling…
dont work

BTW, while updating I got perl-modules_5.20.2-3+deb8u9 error. file corrupt.
I downloaded it and DPKG manualy

doed anybody know what “segmantation fault” is?


First, please run grab-logs -A and provide the URL it returns.

Second, which version of MiniDLNA are you running? I installed a version from the Debian repo and I’m seeing different messages:

osmc@osmc:~$ sudo systemctl status minidlna

cannot gat minidlna version.
~$ minidlnad --version
Segmentation fault

I will try to re-install minidlna from another repo

Your system is failing to update itself to the latest software versions. One possibility is that the SD card is failing.

Please show the output from running

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

I will try to update/upgrade again
and will look into replacing the SD

Just to update
(took me some time )
after several reboot, minidlna start working BUT samba stopped
I bought a new SD, installed new KODI
just finished installing and configuring minidlna and samba
everything is working (so far)
Thank for all the tips
