After installation I get an error "Cannot start Rivendell daemons" whenever trying to start rdadmin, rdairplay, rd<anything>.

  1. Check for the existence of a directory called /var/run/rivendell.
    Because /var/run is stored on a RAM disk in Ubuntu this directory needs to be created after every boot. (This is fixed in the initialization scripts provided by the Tryphon package repository)
  2. If you are using the guide from Alban you need to delete the "; < - your login" when you edit rd.conf for your AudioUser or the startup will fail with an invalid AudioUser error.
