Latest minidlna update - trashes config

Postby Jethro_UK » 2020-12-12 11:46

Just a heads up that the latest minidlna release - minidlna (1.2.1+dfsg-2+deb10u1) buster-security; urgency=high - manages to trash your minidlna.conf and replace it with a default version.

Your original config is saved under /etc/minidlna.conf.dpkg-old so not a big deal to recover. However it's a nasty surprise when you sit down to watch TV and all of a sudden there's no files listed.

Did you update with synaptic? APT should ask what to do with the configuration file but I don't know if the question is seen for a GUI upgrade.

Fair point - I tend to use Webmin to manage updates on that server, so it may have made a decision for me.

Like I said, nothing lost (no need to go to backups :) ) but it was a minor irritation.
