I installed minidlna from the tarball. The version using apt-get install minidlna is a little older and does not have compatibility features i need. I auto start minidlna by executing sudo update-rc.d minidlna defaults. However, I notice it runs as root. Is this bad? How do i get it to run as my user instead of as root.

This page has instructions on running minidlna as a non-root user

thanks - i noticed that page. I guess it is better to run as non-root. I will do it. –  Amir Mar 2 '12 at 17:24
