Description Sergey S. Starikoff 2021-01-04 16:56:11 UTC
I use mpd (for now [I] media-sound/mpd (0.21.26@28.11.2020): The Music Player Daemon (mpd)) player with system-wide storage for playlists.
Some time ago I've updated my music collection and find, that default installation of mpd is non full-featured for unprivilleged user usage.

My user:
# id tux
uid=1001(tux) gid=1001(tux) groups=1001(tux),18(audio),85(usb),998(vboxusers),995(vboxsf),994(scanner),35(games)

Adding write permission for group:
# chmod -R g+w /var/lib/mpd/playlists

# ls -l /var/lib/mpd/ | grep list
drwxrwxr-x 2 mpd  audio  4096 Jan  4 16:33 playlists

Please add setting this permission in ebuild.
Probably with the same for /var/lib/mpd/music directory.

Also it is strange to see logs in /var/lib/mpd/ instead of /var/log/…
